Mohave County is located in the northwestern corner of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 200,186. While the county’s largest single city is Lake Havasu City, the area with highest population is the Bullhead City/Fort Mohave/Mohave Valley area.  


Mohave County contains parts of Grand Canyon National Park, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and all of the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument. The Kaibab, Fort Mojave, and Hualapai Indian Reservations also lie within the county.
