Love camping at River Island, it’s a Grand Canyon type of camping on the river
First long trip in our new camper to Parker, AZ. We decided to pick the River Island as our first trip to Parker. The campgrounds are very welcoming and spread out with good distance between them. You are nestled way in between two large canyons of red rock with the beautiful Colorado River to the west end of the campsites. The restrooms and showers were clean and well stocked. The Wi-Fi and Phone service was a little patchy, then again you're camping. It was very convenient that there is a private boat launch with the campground, you can launch your boat and other watercraft without leaving the site. Overall we would camp here again, however our next Parker AZ trip will be to Buckskin State Park just south of River Island, wait for our review there.
This park is next door to Buckskin about ten minutes from Parker right on the Colorado River. It’s one of the prettiest areas in the state. Large sites with a great beach.
