agree with previous writers, the only thing I hesitate on is the casual atmosphere in the check in booth. The gal didn't know if they had any sites available, encouraged me strongly to self pay instead of work with her, hard to get into some sites, no place to turn around. If I was to do it next time, I would turn left at the entry to the sites and it may be easier to get your rig into the sites along the right side of the road. found out that it cost $2.00 more if you ask the gal in the booth to help you. A bit if a drive/walk to the river and day use. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

I rarely rate a 10 for any park, but this one is an exception. Very, very nice state park. We were only there one night, but would have stayed longer if we weren't on a deadline to get home. The sites are very spacious and they each have a shade ramada, firepit and BBQ. We had a pull thru site that was pretty level and quiet, (except for the wind...it was very windy). We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

Outside Laughlin, which is loaded with casinos. Not walking distance, but if you have a towed, your good to go.

Great State Park our first visit, but will be more. Check in for two nights but stay five. Great cell and air card service. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

Just returned from this State Park and agree with the other comments. NV ran out of money before the 2nd loop could be completed and they can't advertise. Very nice for Winter, Spring & Fall camping. Would camp here again, fee reflects being a NV senior citizen with a yearly state pass. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

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 camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Big Bend of the Colorado River State Recreation in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
