Our favorite on the Colorado

Great spot. Large spaces. Well maintained. What else can you ask for?

Full Amenity Campground with Riverfront sites

PROS: 

  • Some sites are right on the Colorado river.
  • Beautiful mountain ranges in the background.
  • Full amenities at this park including showers and restrooms.
  • Our site had a nice fire pit and grill, where you could simultaneously cook over coals while still having a nice fire going in the other area of the pit.
  • This campground is near a lot of incredible hiking opportunities.

CONS:

  • Our site was right underneath a bright lamp that shined into our tent and made it hard to sleep. We were at the site next to the walkway down to the river. Sites next to the bathrooms will also deal with night lamps.
  • Tent sites are gravel, which isn't so bad except the whole are kind of slopes down to the river, making sleeping flat difficult.

Overall a well maintained and friendly park. Would come 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Desert Oasis

Buckskin is an amazing park. We have tent camped and RV camped there. Hookups and restrooms are great. The showers are also nice. The best part is, you’re on the Colorado River!!! There are 2 beaches, one you can beach your boat and another that has a designated swimming area. (If you plan on leaving your boat overnight, anchor out about 10-20 feet from shore. The water level drops a few feet at night.) they are also planning to remodel the closed restaurant on site. This is a very friendly family environment.
