There only a few spots that have sewer (6 - 7), there is a dump station available. Spots are spacious and very nice. Unfortunately, we had a spot near the sewer plant the smell was horrible. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled into this park just to check it out, and stayed for a few nights. Very well maintained park, scenic location, sizable sites, and many pull-throughs. Many of the guests are in large Class A motorhomes and fit nicely into the camp sites. According to other guests there are some issues with dumping gray and black water and also with water to the sites. I had no issues at the dump station, and water pressure seems fine. This is a good park to visit. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Some hiking trails. Could be very loud in summer with boats racing along the river. Sketchy Wi-Fi provided at the front of the park. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here before, but this time the restrooms were closed due to a clog somewhere in the system. You had to go to the cabana area to shower and use the restrooms, which was quite a distance away. Be careful, too, if you make reservations online, that you get away from the sewer pond because it is very smelly. Most sites are water and electricity only. If you want a sewer hookup, they are not easy to get. Apparently, people know that they have to make reservations a year in advance to get these sites during the snowbird time and those sites are usually booked, it seems, by the same people every year (we recognized several of the rigs from last year). The store and many facilities are closed in January. There is very little cell service, ours did work sometimes. Television reception on an antenna is non-existent. The nice thing is that the sites are roomy and the staff is very helpful. We would stay here again since there is very little else available in the area. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic check in took longer than it should have, pretty slow that day. Well treed campground with paved roadways and sites. Sites are decently spaced. Bathrooms/showers were adequate. Wifi only available in common area. Rental cabana area eliminated what would have been a wonderful river view. Nice beach area along the river but don't expect a sand beach. Enjoyed the hiking trails from the park trail head. Enjoyed our stay and overall a good park. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Truck Camper.

Very nicely layout for RVs of medium size. A bit pricey. Set next to a bend on the Colorado River. Good electrical and water hookups. Free Wi-Fi close to the ticket station. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park with nice large spaces and some nice shady spots. It is very quiet and you don't get a lot of noise from the highway. There is no WiFi and cell service is very limited. Only some of the spots have a sewer connection and it is nearly impossible to get one of these spots because people make reservations a year in advance to get them. We would stay here again. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park at a great time of year. We enjoyed the river views as well as the low number of campers. Toured the surrounding area and plan to return. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A fantastic place to be. The sites were all tar and well kept. We managed somehow to get internet access, not sure how. Little shop on site which provides food, but if you sit in the restaurant you have to listen to the games room next door, which can be rather annoying. Sitting outside on the waterfront was very tranquil. The motorboats and jet ski can be loud. Lovely cactus garden on the site and some old mine machinery. Only stayed 1 night but would have stayed more. Water is very clear; pity no canoes or kayaks to hire. BBQ spots and picnic benches with each site. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We spent a week at this lovely park right on the Colorado River. Although full, it was quiet (pre spring break). Our site had water and electric hookups. 17 sites have sewer too (call park for site numbers). Grassy areas for walking the dog. Great desert hiking. Friendly rangers, volunteers and fellow campers. We look forward to going back next year. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We hadn't been to the Havasu / Parker area before and chose this park as a base camp for exploring. We were very happy with our site, nice and level, shady, good views of the Colorado river. Our site didn't have the sewer hookup, so the price seemed on the high side taking that into consideration (although we knew that when making the reservation so can't complain much). In comparison to several other options up and down the Parker strip, we would likely stay here again if we came back through. AT&T signal strength was good in the site. Local custom seems to be to walk through each others sites. Maybe they all knew each other already, or were less grouchy than I am! We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yet another nice state park right by the shores of Colorado River. Great place for boating and jet-ski people. Not so great if you are "allergic" to the noise coming from these. $30 per night is perhaps a bit on the high side for "only" State park facilities but everything in pristine working and maintained order. You can get a decent Verizon signal here, although not on all sites. If you need a signal, check it before you commit yourself to a specific site number. Asked permission to use ½ a bucket of water to wash off the bugs on the front of the RV. This was declined by the manager. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gorgeous park and kept up nicely. We stayed in three different sites and all seemed very spacious. Utilities were in good locations, and the sites were level. Most of the sites have a view of the Colorado River as it borders two sides of the park. The hike up the mountain has a great view of the area. Our Verizon cell phones worked fine there. The park was quiet (winter) but full each day. We did not use the restrooms or showers. We would definitely stay at Buckskin again. Wish there were more full-hook up sites; we were not able to get one. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a beautiful park but a little pricey, but not visiting this area before you have to get familiar with the area. We paid for FHU's and glad we did, I think in the summer it might be noisy unless that's what your there for. If we are in the area again i think we will stay somewhere else, but we did enjoy the park this time. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

The entrance to the state park is a short and somewhat steep road. Some of the sites had FHU and the rest of the sites have water and electric only. There is a dump station within the park. The interior roads and sites are on asphalt. The interior roads are narrow and could be a problem if the park was crowded. There is mostly dirt separating each site and could be very dusty if the winds kick in. The water and electric facilities are located in the middle of the site and the sewer is towards the back. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ stand. The trees needed to be pruned. If you have a tall rig, look carefully at each site. The bathrooms are very old, tired and sad looking. Verizon air card signal was weak but we were able to access the internet. You may need an antenna to boost the signal. The Verizon cell phone occasionally searched for a signal but we were able to make and receive calls. This park tries to accommodate all types of activities. There is a boat dock, swimming area, picnic area, playground, and a small restaurant. This park could get very busy and crowded if all the sites were taken. We would probably come back here again if it was during the weekday and not in season. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
