We return to this resort every year. We rent the cabins on the beach side during Monday through Friday. It is a beautifully maintained and decorated resort with full amenities. Cabins are well stocked with everything you could need. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, patio with BBQ! AWESOME!

Bad place for Senior Couples, good place for families. Check-in took a looong time. Clerks were not friendly and almost arrogant. Site numbers were not well marked. Showers were coin operated, bring your quarters. Very tacky at their prices. Gravel everywhere, paved almost non-existent. Beautiful river waterfront. Our GPS's did not recognize their address. (Have vehicle GPS and Good Sam... More

The resort staff is very friendly. Be sure you check in only a few minutes before 3pm. The crowd at the RV Campground are super friendly and are willing to lend a hand if needed. My family and I love coming here book early for a guaranteed spot. Full hook ups a few minor power outages but the river is... More

we rented waverunners and spend half a day on the Mighty Coloradoriver. Great machinese very bizar to be on the river and in the middle of the desert too. We did not spend time in the resort, but it looked clean and well maintained.

The staff and the crowd are super friendly here. The RV spots on the water are fantastic. The store is clean and has many basic needs including ice. We found the restrooms to be very clean with hot showers for only a few quarters. They also have a nice little spot with water spouts for the kids to play. We... More

While on an RV trip, we stopped off for a few days at Buckskin Mountain State Park near Parker, Arizona. We decided to take a jetboat tour of Lake Havasu that included a 90 minute lunch stop at a restaurant-bar-grill, named Pirate's Cove, right on the water, somewhere near Needles, California. We were given menus on the tour boat so... More
