“Desert Camping with all the Perks”

Reviewed Dec 04, 2018

Overall Rating

Site fee reflects the discount with a Nevada All-Access pass, which eliminates the daily rate and leaves only a $10 fee for full hook-ups. (Normally a FHU space would cost $30 per day.) With only 24 spaces, the campground can fill up on weekends and holidays, but had plenty of open sites while we were there. TV picks up seven broadcas... more

“Huge spaces, beautiful desert, close to civilization”

Reviewed Oct 31, 2018

Overall Rating

The price reflects staying 14 days, buying a $200 Nevada State Park pass, which then lets you stay free + $10 for hookups! Normally it's $30/d. We can now stay again and only pay $10/d at this or some other Nevada State Parks. It's a deal! There is no pre-booking, so there is always the chance of not getting a spot, but there are so... more

“Surprising park tucked away from Casino Craziness”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2018

Overall Rating

On our way home from Tucson to Boise we decided to quickly make this stop in order to go see the Burros in Oatman. We searched for places to stay all over the area and settled on this State Park. We were completely surprised by this great little park! As we drove through Laughlin and saw all the Casino RV parks (not our thing) we qu... more

“Perfect Base Camp”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a nice campground and it was never very crowded while we were there. The sites are HUGE and are full hookup. The showers were clean enough but...you also had to pay, or get tokens or some such thing. Showers and restrooms were individual though, that's a plus. There is a picnic area and boat launch, both close fairly early ... more

“Spacious campsites with full hookups. Lots of birds ”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2018

Overall Rating

All sites have a covered picnic area. The sites are large and not too close to each other. There are trails leading out from the park towards the Colorado river where you can do some bird watching. The park is close to all kinds of amenities, but the setting is truly natural. This is a first come first served campground (14 day max... more

“Excellent campground ”

Reviewed Oct 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrived the third week of September and thought it would be full of snowbirds but lucky for us, it was almost empty. Beautiful big level sites with concrete slab, picnic table, fire rings, and shade Ramada. Short drive into Laughlin. Would have cost 10 if we had needed full hookups but we didn’t so we stayed for free using our Neva... more

“Great spot!”

Reviewed Jan 09, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground is spacious, clean, well maintained and run by a camp host who is on the ball. We needed cell service and electricity, as the constant rain and clouds rendered our solar panels useless. We extended day after day , as we hated to leave. The sites are large and spread out. The campground is separated from the rest of th... more

Overall Rating

This is a newly reconstructed campground a few miles south of Laughlin, NV. Very well laid out, large sites, pretty landscaping, good trails to the Colorado River. Easy access to town. We will come here again!
