Camping on the Colorado River

Anyone know of a campground or boondock area on the Colorado River?

In AZ there are several state parks between Parker and Havasu.

No, but I know that Terry and Greg have stayed at Buckskin Mtn and speak highly about it.

I like Buckskin Mountain SP. Nearby, River Island is ok too, but Buckskin is better. There's a county park just south of Buckskin and just north of Parker but I can't recall the name off the top of my head.

Hi Goin camping:

All the above suggestions are great! Also Havasu Springs Resort between the town of Parker & Havasu City has full hook-ups for $10.00 per night. It's on the lake itself. A nice walk on an abandoned road to the Dam itself. Pedestrians aren't allowed to walk across anymore. Good fishing on the pier. Kids can walk out and wet a line! I've seen many striped bass, catfish, bluegill and crappie caught from that pier. Some-times I think it's better fishing than from your own boat!

Many rigs boondock a few miles outside of Havasu Springs on both ends of the city. You will have lots of company.

Enjoy your adventure!

KOA in Blythe. Right on river's edge. I've stayed there several times as respite from boondocking at Quartzsite.

Sorry! -- I meant to say boondocking a few miles from Havasu City -- You will find rigs boon docking before you get into Havasu City, and if you continue through the town, you see more boon docking rigs a few miles down the road.

We've had a park model at Havasu Springs Resort since the 1950's. I spend quite a bit of time in the area. It's starting to get a bit warm now.

I'm putting this thread in my "got to go there some day" file. Actually, we plan to head out that way this fall. Thanks!

Arizona Parks, Buckskin Mtn

We were in Buckskin Mtn in March of this year. It's pretty but has an above ground onsite sewage processing plant. Stink was so bad it woke us up in the middle of the night. We moved after two days to the River Island unit a few miles north. La Paz County Park was so-so, crowded. We got stuck in overflow waiting for our reservation in Buckskin Mtn.

Cheers - Dave

I would think it would be getting warmish down there about this time, so I would guess electricity would be nice. Riverside County has a park just north of Blythe (Mayflower), on the Colorado river, with hookups, and Passport America on certain days. Those river parks kinda transition from snowbird destinations in the winter to waterski destinations in the summer, including whatever activities might be associated with those two different cohorts.
