There are perhaps 7 or 8 pull through sites, all others are back-in. Very quiet desert campground in an incredible location. Road adjacent to campground is quite busy with river rafting companies and buses. Nearby boat ramp is the actual start, mile 0, of all permit commercial and private trips into the Grand Canyon. Very interesting to watch elaborate preparations. Mile 0 is an arbitrary point since this point is 18 river miles downstream of the dam at Page, AZ. No permit needed to paddle upstream. Superb river scenery upstream, great for kayakers.

For the last few years this is one of the few Arizona State Parks that allow long term camping beginning in November. Park usually full after the holidays. When the weather warms up in early Springs the motor boat and jet ski crowd increases, but in winter it is mostly a fishing boating group. Excellent campground for kayaking on Lake Havasu. This State park includes optional boat-in campsites for a separate fee. Nearest city is Lake Havasu City, 15 miles north on highway 95. All amenities.

Not mentioned in previous posts are that campers are permitted to attend horse functions in the barn. Also, this park is separated from the Mississippi river by a levee which has a bike/hike trail on top. Very nice trail, partially paved, where one can walk or bike to downtown and view the river.
