Nice stop! Space 18 in North Shore, very enjoyable. Just come prepared there is no grocery store for 30 miles. Get gas before you get to Needles or you will pay a lot more. On the river, great beach to walk on. We avoided all the bad winter weather. Would definitely go back.
We travel full time so we see a lot of parks. This one is small but clean and modern. There seems to be few long term campers which helps to keep the park looking clean. There is a small pool which I didn’t try because it was November. During our stay it was quiet and everyone respected the space of others. It is convenient to I-40 and Hwy 93 being at the intersection of both with several truck stops just across the freeway. The park has a few small trees which appear to be well cared for. All in all, a pretty nice place.
Beautiful campground resort right on the Colorado River! FHU's, wifi, cable TV. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Excellent customer service. Sabrina and Wayne both helped us get hooked up, and helped with our cable TV issues. Close to Laughlin casinos and river activities. We will definitely visit this campground again!
Buckskin is a great campground on the Colorado River. There’s a little swimming area that’s cordon off from all the boaters that you can enjoy. There’s a store that sells ice cream and various camping supplies. There’s also a number of RV spots that are shaded by trees. This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and just enjoy a relaxing few days on the river.
Cell Service: Verizon Great, Sprint not great
Reasonable price and spaces are very spacious. Employees are friendly and helpful. Casino is across the street next to the river. Fireworks are nightly and available to buy at the corner gas station /fireworks store. Grocery stores are very close for any of your needs.
I have been coming here since my parents brought us here. Nice space between RVs. We were here during non holiday time of the year so it was generally quiet. The employees are very nice and helpful. The only thing I would suggest that you need to do is rake the beach area more frequently to keep the debris at a minimum. Other than that I would recommend Crazy Horse RV park.
Just a few miles off I-40 just east of Kingman. So surprising how much the temperature dropped up the mountain looking over the Arizona desert still. The rangers at the campground was very informational and helpful on finding the perfect place for either tent camping or bringing your RV with hook-ups. The grounds have plenty of trails to hike and the scenery is wonderful and the freshness of the air words can't describe. Definitely coming back in the future.
Unfortunately we weren't able to get a site here or a bite to eat. A large truck took out the power pole and knocked out the power to the whole city of Wikieup.
Had a wonderful stay at this RV park. Has a wonderful staff and very friendly. Full hook-ups make the stay very convenient and comfortable, not only the cost is very reasonable. Dogs enjoyed the dog park and the old farm equipment made the place very rustic.
Just to the north off Hwy 63 headed from Golden Valley to Laughlin sits a off road BLM camping site. Road is well maintained and lots of level areas to park your camper. Bring in your own water and generator, pack out what you bring in. No trash pick up or garbage containers. Great spot to stay for the night or day to explore mines and or ride.
Affordable camping and day use on the Colorado River just North of Bullhead City, AZ and Laughlin, NV. Full hook-ups available, showers, and on the river camping. Great place to spend a few days or just a few hours on the river. Convenient Jetski rentals on site.
Buckskin is another favorite if you don’t mind the heat but want to be within walking distance to the water. The river is extremely busy during the summer months. You can swim close to shore but can’t swim across the river as you’ll get ran over. Great beach areas to beach boats and play in the water for the kids. We stayed in 57 which was close to the dump station but wasn’t busy until Sunday at check out time. There is a dog park on site. Cell phone service is terrible. (Verizon). The resturant and store recently closed. As well as the gas station. We heard that on the California side there was a newer site opening and an arcade but never checked it out.
We stayed here Father’s Day weekend this year. We had a pull through site close to the lake. We just had to walk across a dirt road and we were on the water. There is a lot of beachfront but make sure to have water shoes. The lake can be rocky in spots. Overall we liked the campground. It can get busy on holidays. It is very close to the channel. Also close to several grocery stores if needed. There is a store on site but can be pricey. Not all sites have a dump station but there are 2 locations on the way out or they have a honey wagon that comes around. The honey wagon has an additional charge. One downside was they charge for everything. Campsite is one charge. You have an extra car and that is a charge. Have a pet? That is a charge etc. they are upfront about it all but it does add up. Even still I would go there again.
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.
Camped here during 2019, 4th of July weekend. Mobile home rentals available, full hookup RV services, and tent camping available. Echo Lodge is in a beautiful area situated on the Colorado River where the river water is just cool enough to take the sting out the 100+ degree temperatures. Plenty of boating, jet skiing, swimming, or lounging around on floatation devices to be had on the river throughout the site. Site has a small convenience store for ice runs and everyday supplies. Echo Lodge also offers a bar/restaurant in the kiddie pool/wade pool compound on site. Had a great time all around and met some very good people while there. Some of the permanent residents allowed our kids to use their lily pad which was a pleasant surprise to all of us. Just good vibes and good times. Hope to visit here again soon.
First of all I want to say we stayed at this campground in the end of May and it was hotter than Hades! The park is beautiful. It's right on the Colorado River. We stayed in site 52 and we were across from the restaurant/store. They had pizza and beer, what more can you ask for. Our lot had a huge shade tree, however in 112 temps, it didn't help to keep us that cool. We paid $35 for water and electric. There was a a picnic table and firepit (no way usable in 100 degree weather) But they did sell firewood. Your steps away from the cool river, if you wanted to sit in the water. Lots and lots of boats up and down the river. They didn't seem to care about speed limits, so it could get noisy during the day. I would love to go back during the winter/spring months. Dish satellite and Verizon both worked well. I will definitely go back, but when it's much cooler.
If you’re looking for some peace and quiet you might want to skip this campground, but if you’re looking for some fun and a late night out this is a great spot. The KOA campground is nothing special, very basic, barren wasteland with full hookup sites. The cool thing here is that the AVI casino is directly across the street and is the only thing around for miles, so you’ll most likely be spending your time there like we did. We did not hang out at the river as it looked like total mayhem (fun but chaotic), crowded beach area with boats everywhere, and loud music. The pool area was also crowded but we managed to find a table and lounge chairs and let the kids loose. You can’t bring in your own drinks unlike the beach area but we were able to order a couple of rounds of over priced mediocre cocktails/ beers. After the sun went down all the parents decided drop off all kids at the kids care play center where you can leave your kid in there till 2am, yes that’s right 2am. All of us parents laughed at that but then went out gambling and eating out late and ended up picking our kids up close to 1am. The kids loved it, it was a bit of a lord of the flies situation in the kids center that late at night (just running around wild and crazy) but they were safe and had a blast. After getting back to the camper and putting our zombie kids to sleep we noticed that it’s still a party outside with fireworks going off throughout the night. It wasn’t terrible but fireworks are legal there and people set them off late into the night. Again, if you are looking for a fun night with friends and family check this place out, but if you’re looking for a peaceful place look elsewhere.
Took the back roads fun drive we miss the guard keeper
