What an awesome state park! The Colorado River is on three sides and you have lots of trees as well. This is a pretty spacious park and the staff is friendly. Pretty level sites as well.

This was incredible! When I started out I wasn't sure where I was going and sort of arrived here. The first thing that struck me was the natural and austere beauty of Sonoran Desert. The Colorado River offers a stark contrast to the desert. The park offers something for everyone. There is boating, camping, beaches and hiking. I chose to... More

We spent an afternoon here playing by the water and having a picnic with our two-year-old daughter and four-year-old son. We loved the view of the river and rock. Wasn't very busy in March, so the river didn't have a lot of traffic.

Wonderful place, we visited twice, and would go back again if we could. We met some wonderful people there. Organised events were fantastic, including the fireside evening, and the guided walk. Great place, great staff and volunteers, keep up the great work and maybe 'll see you again some day. Thank you Buckskin xx

First time we had ever been to this area. Found the campsite very clean. Some spots are larger than others and some have water views and some don't. We did get a good spot, but also was very selective when we chose it. The good spots are taken way ahead of time, so you need to book months out if... More

My husband and I booked a "cabana" campsite right next to the Colorado River for two nights in October. We were on a camping holiday and supposed to be touring the national parks, but the government shutdown changed our plans. So, we booked in here because it was on the river and we thought it would be peaceful and pretty.... More
