Katherine's Landing, Bullhead City, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2005 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We were passing through the area yesterday and decided to check out Katherine's Landing to see what it would be like to camp there in the fall/winter. We had quite a surprise when we came into the area as all the four camp areas on the left side of the road were closed to camping and reserved for boating overflow, not a sole in any of the four areas. The only one they had open was on the right side by the rangers office and what a site to see! It looks as if the camp workers had lived there since earth's creation as they had more trash/junk stashed around their campsite than I had ever seen. In addition they had a few campsites occupied by people living out of their cars; it looked as if they were homeless with no place to go. I wonder if they (the park rangers) collected the $10.00 camp fee from them. If this is what our NFS campgrounds are becoming and with the cost of camping in them going up also, I wonder who is pocketing the money as all the help is strictly volunteer. It's a shame to see what we are paying for and getting in return from the National Park Service, maybe this is the exception, but it should be looked into. I have notified the National Park Service of my findings at Katherine's Landing and requested that they look into it. We camped at Katherine's Landing in a Travel Trailer.
