Spent a few nights in park on way South. Very full and found only spot right next to sewage treatment area. Well kept park. Lots of grass & mature trees along river. Nice desert hikes originating in park. Another RV park right across Colorado River on CA side. River so obviously lots of boats & jet skies but not a... More

Lots of great campsites with shade trees. Bathrooms with showers and plenty of hot water. Friendly park service employees. Close to the river. Will stay here again!

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

It was nice, clean and a great place on the river....hiking, swimming and a boat ramp. Nice and cool on a very hot day.

Well kept facility away from the crowds. Stayed in the ramada overnight right by the rivers edge. Scenic setting with swimming area just steps away. Not exactly a serene getaway but lots of action on the water. Powerboats, jet skiers, kayaking, swimming, fishing, grilling, relaxing in the shade, or on the sand.

Nice place for the kids. We visited via boat, but it costs too much to get into the park for simply a day visit.
