Bob, we came here 6 years ago and didn't have a clue where to go or what to do. We found ourselves in the Parker area and because we had our quads with us we decided to stay for a few weeks. Weeks have turned into 6 years for us. We have traveled around and looked but for our needs/wants we are very happy here. Also, if you don't stay at least a month you will find that it is an expencive winter. Daily and weekly rates in most parks are high.

Was talking to a guy from Oregon the other day and he told me that the RV resort across from Buckskin on the calif side charges $299.00 per month full hookups and thats including electric. He went over there and was going to make reservations for next year. The spots back up to the Colorado about 60 feet from the water, and have about 15 to 19 feet between trailers. dodn't look to bad.

We haven't been to the Buckskin area in a long time. When we are at Park Moabi in March we will take a day trip to that area of the river.

I would really check that out. We have checked most parks in the area and have not found any that include electricity on a monthly rate. In fact it is hard to find a weekly spot with out having to pay the electric bill. Most parks will charge .16 or .17 per KWH.

Just checked out the website for Moabi, from Nov till March the rent is $220.00 per month and you can only stay 5 month in any 1 [one] year. I did not see anything about the electric cost if any. I might have missed it, but it still looks good. Bounder what is there to do around there. didn't see to much. Thanx Ernie

I just called the office and the rent is $260 including electricity. The web site is wrong. Next year the rent is going to be $300 including electricity.
Things to do: Oatman, Az. is an old gold mining town on route 66 about an hours drive, (people still live there). Laughlin Nv. is about 35 miles north & Lake Havasu City is 30 miles south. Kingman Az. is 60 miles to the east. The Topock Gorge is beautiful but can only be seen by boat, it starts 2 miles down river. Lots of desert to explore. The park office also has a list of things to do.
