Expensive for a state park, but you can't beat the spectacular location in the canyon on the banks of the Colorado. Probably crowded during the season, but lots of trees and grass with widely spaced sites. I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We haven't stayed here for four years. It's a decent park with a great location. Stores etcetera are not far. Very friendly folks greeted us at check-in and made us feel welcome. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park right on the Colorado River. Decent size sites with water and electric. Some sites have nice shade trees and others in the open with small trees. Because down in the canyon, poor cell and zero OTA signal. The store and restaurant were not yet open for the season. Definitely need to have reservations. Local stores easily accessible for most needs. Staff friendly. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 13 nights. The sites are a bit close, but very clean. The volunteer group that keeps the campground clean and running was friendly and worked hard at keeping everything clean. Showers were set for nice warm/medium hot temperatures and always clean, as were restrooms. We booked 6 months in advance heard people saying they could only get in one or two nights, but they booked very late. No T-Mobile signal for cell, but our verizon data card worked great for WIFI calling on these phones. WIFI in the park was there but very poor. Nice DVD Selection as were used books in the visitor center. Right on river, occasionally you could hear a boat travel by, but only about 3 during our entire stay. Some sites have sewer, ours did not, so we dump about every 5 or 6 days. Close to Parker Walmart up the road about 10 mins.
Very large tall campers & buses were struggling with the tree branches hitting the top and sides of their campers, but the staff would come and trim, but looked like a major pain for some. We did not have any issue as our camper wasn't as tall. We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Drive toward Lake Havasu and there are some nice restaurants about 5 minutes away. (North), we found both the mexican restaurant and pizza place to be outstanding food.

Park is located on the Colorado River and has an excellent beach and even a dog beach. Utilities function good and there is a cactus garden near the front entrance. A trail up a small mountain provides a scenic view of the area and river. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Stay here again: Yes! We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
