Lake Havasu Marina Lighthouse N7Z

This Lighthouse was actually the precursor to the formation of the Lighthouse Club. It was the inspiration that set our Lighthouse Club Plan into action. It is located at the Lake Havasu Marina entrance and is a valuable aid to our lake navigation.
The lighthouse was built and operational in 2000 and is 17′ tall.
