Yes, we call that hot where I come from too. I was trying to keep a positive spin on things with understatement. "Goin Camping" shows that he's from the Mojave, I guess Antelope Valley area, so maybe he's acquired a tolerance? Then again, you're from Phoenix, and you call it hottish, so it's hot.

Mrs. Camping and I are in our happy comfort zone from 90 to 115 degrees. After 115 we find shade and drink ice cold beer. Needless to say, we love 116.

Anyone know of an area to boondock? Seems the parks are chock full of boaters.

The boondocking place north of Havasu is directly under the airport runway take-off/landing strip...kinda like KOA's penchant for proximity to railroads...
Further north at Laughlin, Nev/ Bullhead City are several choices...if you want casino life, there are RV parks associated with casinos that offer discounted rates(largest is Riverside)...the Avi has a free boondock area, and you can cross the street after dark and use the KOA dump/water station for free, or pay for it during the day. Further north, on the NV side, but on the southern side of the casino strip, is a boondock area up on the hill overlooking the river and casino...I believe we were told that you are supposed to pay $5, but we didn't know that, and no one came to us to collect. There is a county park just north of Bullhead City(AZ side) on the river that seemed pretty nice, but we have not stayed there, yet. Buckskin is nice, but yes, it has odor problems. The county park by Havasu seemed like it would have been nice, if there hadn't been a music/art festival starting the next day...Bob&Lou have wintered up in that area, and might be a good source...m

Lee's Ferry Camp Ground

Lee's Ferry is a nice, for pay, campground. It is situated above the Colorado River on a high area with many groomed RV camping spots. It has been a number of years since we parked there, but it is worth the stop.

You can drive or walk down to the Colorado River from the camp ground easily. The river water was cold and clear when we were there, whatever month I do not recall.

If you stop there... please fill in the blanks. If I can find some photographs of the trip, I will include them in a later post.

Hi everyone, There happens to be a great spot on the island called site #6, simple to find in Havasu. Take McCulloch Blvd west over the London Bridge and go all the way to the end to the boat launch, right next to the boat launch is an area that has great spots and is free for the taking, right on the water and close too everything with some nice privacy too boot. Be advised that today is bouncing around 100 with temps expected to be 105 + avg for the next week or so. Other than that nights cool off to 78 - 80 and are nice. Hot weather starts end of June till Sept. There is free boondocking just south of town if coming from Parker and free boondocking just north at the curve if coming from the north Needles. (Though the wild burros will let you know that they own the night by announcing their presence ...LOL) Give us a shout and if we are not on the road we can give the tour or answer any of your questions. Paul & Linda

I have camped at Mayflower County Park just north of Blythe. Very nice and reasonable.

Head down to site six on the island in Havasu, Go west on McCulloch to the end and right next to the launch site. Plenty of free camping and close to every thing. You can google map the location to see other campers at the location. High today as of 12:30 98 degrees and cooling down to 78 - 80 for the evening. Life is good here. Paul & Linda

I may have missed in the postings WHERE on the Colorado River, but we camped in a BLM (Bureau of Land Management) "campground" right on the CO River (literally) near Moab, UT - close to Arches NP. No facilities whatsoever - no problem.

Page Arizona has a beautiful campground up on the lake. One of the nicest campgrounds I have been in.

I used to work at the Picacho State Recreation Area on the Calif. side of the Colorado river about 30 miles north of Yuma. Ther camping is primitive but it is right on the river. The road leading there cuts thru BLM land and that land that is not being mined is legal to camp on free.
Don't know if that rec area survived the budget cuts. It may be closed.

We have camped there. There are some nice sites all the way up the river. they put them in about 3-4 years ago. It's really nice. Plus you can camp right at the bottom of porcupine rim bike trail.

Also In Colorado "where the river originates" There are some state camp grounds is Fruita and Palisade on the river. Plus Fruita has some of the best mountain biking in the country. I'm sure there are some more further up in the mountains but I haven't really spent the time to look.
