“Great campgroud!”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2019

Overall Rating

We love this campground. Clean, well maintained, right on the river. Electric and water and a few full hookups, but the E/W sites are great. The rangers here are very nice and helpful and the campground is very well taken care of. Pay attention to the time of year and where the sun is because our site was in full sun even though we... more

“Great State Park!”

Reviewed Jan 16, 2019

Overall Rating

This is such an awesome campground (as are all of the Arizona State Parks!). The sites are long and (mostly) pull throughs. The only sites right on the river are for tents/vans but it's just a short walk to the water. The campground is set between the hills and it's gorgeous! The camp hosts are friendly. AZ always has free wifi fo... more

“Clean, neat, and highly enjoyable riverside camping”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2018

Overall Rating

One of the cleanest and neatest parks I’ve ever seen! Each camp spot was raked clean by the camp host prior to guests arrival. There wasn’t a spot of trash to be seen anywhere. The camp host obviously takes pride in his duties. The restrooms were spotless, had plenty of hot water, and the showers were private, clean, and well mai... more

“A Really Nice Park”

Reviewed Feb 12, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here in February. We had a reservation for a one-night stop over and liked it so much we stayed an extra day. Our pull-through site was a large site with power and water right on the Colorado River with a boat launch and a small beach. The park was immaculate...very well maintained. It is in a small area surrounded by clo... more

“Wow. Awesome!”

Reviewed Dec 27, 2017

Overall Rating

Huge dirt bike rider here and someone recommended the site down the street. Well, they were full so we stayed here.

LOVED IT! Bathrooms- spotless!
Showers- hot and clean

Across the street is frontage road for dirt bike riding straight to the trails.

Major road across the street but nothing intolerable.

We didn’t have reservations and were able to get a spot on a Saturday ( they had 4 spots open) . Mainly gravel through-out. Very well maintained. There was a beach area for swimming ( wanted to stay and hang-out) with restrooms close by. Newer part so young trees and not much shade . We didn’t have any issue with noise from the hwy. a... more

“Nice AZ State Park, a bit close to the highway”

Reviewed Feb 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Like all of the Arizona State Parks we’ve used, this one is clean, well-maintained and pleasant. The staff were helpful and cheerful. The park is right on the water and is surrounded by high rock formations on the other sides. It is a small park, and unlike some of the Arizona State Parks, the sites are parallel and somewhat less spaci... more

We stopped here on a whim and hoped there would be open spots. We were pleasantly surprised that the park was maybe only 1/4 full & we were able to reserve a 2nd night. Most of the sites are pull through. They have water & electric and a dump station. The park is surrounded by mountains and nestled against the banks of the Colorado Ri... more

“No cell service & road noise”

Reviewed Dec 07, 2014

Overall Rating

Our biggest issue with River Island State Park is the lack of cell service and noise from the road. There was also a high pitched sound that would have bothered us if we had our windows open. The dump station was out of order, so we had to dump 1 mile down the road at Buckskin Mountain State Park, which by the way didn't have an... more
