First Time to Lake Havasu coming from Salt Lake City

We are considering taking a trip with our 6 kids to Lake Havasu for Spring Break (in March). We are bringing a camp trailer and want to stay somewhere family friendly. We are wondering a few things.. is the Lake warm enough to swim/boat on? Do you know of a good RV park that has a swimming pool and also allows you to build fires in your own pit. Is there alot of things for younger kids to do? (ours are ages 4-13). Also, do you know the best way to get there from SLC and a good stop half way through?

thanks for any help!

The lake/river is always fairly cold. People still swim in it though. It depends on your tolerance.

From Salt Lake: I-15 south to Las Vegas, south on US 93/95, south on US 95 to I-40, east across the river to AZ 95 south.

thanks for your info!

We aren't totally set on Lake Havasu.. we just want to get somewhere warm. We actually live in eastern Idaho. Still cold here. Any other suggestions, in that part of Arizona with things to do with kids? (Last year we visted Zion's Park and my kids loved it). But we wanted a bit warmer. Are there other things to see/do in Arizona?
