Great spot to be in the water and enjoy things like swimming and kayaking etc. 3 different vault toilets on site and big dumpster. Theres only so much shore line and that what everyone santa to park by but theres plenty of areas. Had a guy in a van that obviously didnt understand what to close was and basically tryed taking over my sit... more

“One of our top 5 of all time!”

Reviewed Mar 18, 2017

Overall Rating

This is one of those spots that you dream of finding. We love parking right next to the water and this was the closest we ever found. We've been to Rincon and to Lone Rock, and this spot was just as awesome. We were nervous about the road, but our fears were unfounded. It was easy to get in and out in our 2wd Xterra towing a 17 foot co... more

Now don’t misunderstand, we originally LOVED this beautiful little-known gem when here in Feb 2015. BUT now (mid-March 2017) the word must have gotten out, it’s not so great. First the hairy 5ml washboard dirt track in has some very steep gradients (esp when leaving) on scrabbly rocks, with tight blind turns - novice RV-haulers beware... more

“Not accessible for longer rigs.”

Reviewed Feb 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We dropped our 40ft 5th wheel at a Laughlin casino in order to scout this area first. Turned out to be a good choice! While most of the road is good, there were a few spots where the dirt road was a steep sharp turning (hairpin) incline (20 degree) on a maybe 12ft wide road. There was no way we were going to chance rolling our ... more

This campground was a happy surprise for us. We arrived at 5:45 pm after sundown and set up in the dark as quickly as possible, happy to be near a bathroom(vault toilets) and to have somewhere to stop and sleep. When we woke up we were treated to a gorgeous view of the Colorado River/Lake Mohave out our van windows. Each site had a f... more

“Nice spot by the lake”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2016

Overall Rating

Though the listing puts this near Searchlight NV, it's actually just outside of Laughlin NV and Bullhead City AZ. The 4-mile dirt access road has lots of washboard, so it's no fun, but take it slow and put on your zen hat. The "beach" is hard packed dirt with coarse grit and pebbles. Very little danger of getting stuck. There's plenty ... more

“Long rutted road to a beautiful cove”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2014

Overall Rating

The road to Telephone Cove is about 4.5 miles from the highway turn-off. It's quite rutted in spots and some of the road is rather steep. Even though we saw a motorhome and a couple 5th wheels here, I'd recommend that bigger rigs unhitch and scout the road first. The cove itself is beautiful and there was between 6 and 10 other ri... more
