A lot of fun for the family. Theirs jet skiing, boating and kayaking. And if you don't like the water they even have buggies you can rent to play in the dirt. Super fun place to visit.

This rare desert oasis is an amazing place for those looking for a little haven of serenity in a hectic world. However, I really can't suggest this as a summer stop since temperatures often exceed 120 degrees!

Paddled 17 miles down the Colorado River through Topock Gorge from Moabi to Castle Rock. Saw Bighorn Sheep and the Petroglyphs.
