We enjoyed our stay, it was peaceful, the resort put on a fabulous Thanksgiving feast. Dogs had room to run and enjoy. Laundry facilities clean and everything worked great. The staff was wonderful , loved Tiffany!

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.

Colorado River Oasis RV Resort

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!

Camping Oasis

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

Our first RV Stop !!

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.

Nice Place

Very roomy sites close enough to the water. Clean and we'll run park with a lot amenities. The only downfall is it's like a timeshare. We got a free visit but needed to listen to the sales pitch for a couple of hours.

Happy with our stay.

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.

Very pretty but in the middle of nowhere!

Gorgeous place to visit or stay love it!!!! Huge park with nice campground. Sites near the ranger station are paved and level. No cell service unless you hike up a trail or drive to the dam overlook. There are only a few hiking trails(easy to moderate) but they are well maintained. The lake is a great place to kayak. We saw many birds and wild donkeys. The views are excellent. Hiking trails were at a minimum. Saw Borros& quail. Located in the middle of no where. Be sure to have full refrig and gas tank before you come in.(There is a convenient store on Rt 60 between Solome& Wenden). We camped at Alamo Lake in a 5th Wheel.

On the river!

Always a joy to camp here. We camp on the Peninsulas. Full hook ups minus cable. Get your very own beach to play on. Leave your water toys at your beach.

Centrally located to lots of things.

Close to the casino, golfing, the Colorado River, Needles, Laughlin and Bullhead City. Has its own launch ramp for water toys. Not much I the way of trees for shade, and mostly dirt.

Love it

Love camping at River Island, it’s a Grand Canyon type of camping on the river

Escape from the Desert Heat

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.

Next time

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.

Primitive Site

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.

Big Bend Gem

Amazing place to set up for the day, camping is available with water and power hook-ups. We spent the day on in the beach area. Definitely a little gem on the Colorado River.

Another great State Park

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.

Gem off the Hwy

We stopped off Hwy 93 into Burro Creek Campground, the sites are well maintained and level. No hook-ups, but the restrooms are clean and kept up. The creek is a wonderful place to relax and fish. Beautiful scenery and the Hwy bridge in the distance is majestic.

Lake Havasu fun

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.

Peaceful and Quiet

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.

Pretty and Clean

Buckskin State Park was perfect for our weekend getaway. The park was clean and the layout was easy to get around. The scenery is beautiful. We’ll definitely be returning.

Very nice

Best place to be.

First to Review
100+ degrees and 100 % fun

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.

Nice RV park

Clean and affordable.

Nice park

Nice and quiet park. Not a lot of actual beachfront but water access was easy enough for swimming. The rv spots had great shade need a full sewer hook up for my likening but had a good time.

A great stay

The hosts were helpful. The park was clean and everyone was friendly. The pool was refreshing and I was excited to not only see activities my 3 year old could do, the park also got pizza and ice cream for all the kids.

Another winner for AZ!

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.

Good times at AVI KOA

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.

Crossroads BLM California , May, 2019

First, you get what you pay for, this tent site was 5.00 per night! The location is great, right on the Colorado River. We made reservations ahead of time using reservation.gov. We knew there were no amenities but were ok with it.

I use a rating scale based on amenities, location, cell service, cleanliness and campsite.

There is no running water available at the site, only one vault toilet, obviously no showers.

The campsite itself was great, nice shady spot with a grill, picnic table and did I mention right on the water.

Cell service was spotty, usually one bar with AT&T.

There are wild burros that roam the area and we were quite surprised that they walked through our campsite down to the water.

We stayed on a Friday night and there were people riding motorcycles or ATVs through the park chasing the burros, making a lot of noise. Also people on the river all through the night making lots of noise.

We rented kayaks in Parker AZ, Parker watercraft and it was great, we loved every minute.

While there we also made the quick trip to Lake Havasu city to see the London Bridge.

Perfect location

Perfect place to ride your side by sides or ATV's. Lots of outdoor activities. Friendly staff and guests.

Quick Vegas Getaway

Facilities are clean and spots are plentiful May-September due to the extreme heat. All sites are pull through RV sites that easily accommodate 2-3 tents (4man). Rumors have it they are clearing sites to create a tent only section but it will not be ready until fall 2020.

Until then expect to pay the $20/night + $10 utility hookup.

Gem on the river

We spent the weekend at this state park in site 49. The site was large with water and 50 amps. There was also a fire pit and it was paved and level. There is free wifi but we couldn’t connect from the site. It’s just a short walk though and it was fast. There is a camp store with ice cream, firewood and other necessities and a cute cactus garden and tortoise habitat.

We spent a great deal of time in the water as it was 100 degrees. The ranger warned us to stay on the side of the river as the speed boats are fast and don’t look! We did as he said and had a blast.

The only negative is that the water from the house hookups smelled. We took showers and it had the smell of sewer. I’m not sure what that is about but after a day in the sand you need a shower!
