A nice NV state park with clean river beaches, pet friendly, clean campground with lots of room between sites, full hookup, Verizon cell and internet out two days then back up. No monthly rates and only two week max stay. Friendly rangers and staff, nice concrete disabled sites, all sites have cover patio with picnic table and BBQ grill and fire pit. Only noise was from near roadway with Laughlin area commuters. Great sunsets and camp fires, no neighbors. Discount for NV residents and annual park pass. Will stay here again on a short visit but look for monthly discount rates available at private campgrounds. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We left the campground two hours after arriving. Yes, it is a beautiful campground as other reviews stated, but we felt unsafe here. There were only two other sites occupied, and neither appeared to be a host. It looked fine when we arrived in the daylight. We set up our rig, put our money in the drop box, then found that our Verizon signal was very weak, there was no security, and cars would cruise through the campground that obviously were not here for camping. Two stopped in front of our rig and seemed to be conducting a transaction. When they left, my wife and I unhooked and left immediately (despite just finishing a long drive from the Grand Canyon) and checked in at the Avi Casino KOA. If there were more campers and a security gate with code, and a host, we would have definitely stayed. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.Undo

I cannot add much to the previous comments. The sites are huge. The campground is about 5 miles away from the casinos and downtown Laughlin so it is pretty quiet. This is one of the nicest government campgrounds but also one of the most expensive. The $30 fee also includes the day use fee but, unless you need to launch your boat, the day use fee doesn't get you anything extra. If you are set up to dry camp, try one of the casinos. Almost all of them offer free camping in one of their parking lots in spaces set aside for RVs. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The sites are huge. A very quiet place. Sure wish the state would make the hosts clean up their site and register their RV. Previous host kept the site very neat and was very friendly. Prices went up, but this price reflects a discount for Nevada residents. Will stay here again. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.Undo

This park has very large, level gravel sites, mostly pull-throughs. Each has a ramada and cement table. It's about a 10 minute walk from the campground to the Colorado River. The bathrooms and showers ($.25 for five minutes) are each private and spotless. The sites and the interior roads are suitable for any size rig. We could easily have fit four of our Bulgemobiles, with toads, in our site. There are two handicapped-accessible sites, which are cement rather than gravel. The 50-amp power was excellent.

Nice, quiet campground. This place has huge sites so you have plenty of privacy. It's a distance to the water, but if you want peace and quiet it's a great place. They have a nice day use area. We have stayed here many times and we almost always have the place to ourselves. There's never been more than a few people there when we are. Friendly staff.

We've stayed here a few times since it opened in March of 2008. The park is all-new. There's plenty of room for big/long RVs and full-hookups at a decent price. The sites are spaced far enough apart that you get the feeling of "camping", instead of "RV-ing". We'll be back again.

What a wonderful park! Brand new RV sites right on the Colorado River. Park and facilities were well maintained. Located just 5 miles south of the Laughlin casinos. I will have to go back in the summer when there is more activity on the river. They even have a boat launch. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Truck Camper.Undo
