Clear water. Beach like setting. The water felt great on the 100°+ weather. Kids loved it. The only issue was a bunch of bugs. Idk what they were they were almost like little moths. They don’t bite they are just super annoying.

This place is easy to find. It's very clean and the park rangers are friendly. It's a great place to take your personal water craft.

Wonderful clean, sandy beaches, swimming cove, tables and camping if desired. The crystal clear Colorado River is beautiful as it winds around the bend. Stay for the sunset!
