Buckskin State Park, Parker Az

We have been here for a week and it is one of the nicest state parks around. Very clean, well kept and the rangers and workcampers are very friendly. It is about 25 miles from Lake Havasu, about 14 miles from Parker, and about 50 miles from Quartsite. Our campsite was only about 200 feet from the Colorado river. Some sites have full hookups , ours had water and electric only, If planning a trip check this place out. Ernie

Ernie,

Always great to hear about the nicer parks...., do you have any preferred campsite number recommendations?

Any pics of the campground would be nice to see if you can post them.

Thanks,

Bob

Don't have any pics. We were in spot 60. I don't know all the campsite numbers that have full hookups but I do know that if you go to the website it has them there. Later Ernie

Just went on buckskin website and the sites that have full hookups are 7,22,31-38, and 62-68. Also spots 17,16,15,23,22 are real close to the sewer processing plant. Didn't smell but machine going all the time, could be noisy. Ernie

Ernie,

Thanks for the feedback.

Thinking seriously of spending my winter in Arizona next year so I'm always interested in hearing about different camping areas, because I don't plan on spending the winter in one CG.

Talking AZ State Parks

Many of AZ parks now have an online reservation sytem ( including this one) with photos of the individual camp sites. http://azstateparks.com/
Saves a lot of rushing about and makes camping a bit lest stressfull.

Here's anouther great place to stay in the winter. Park Moabi is on the California side of the Colorad River. About 35 miles north of Lake Havasu City Az. & 20 miles south of Needles Calif. on Interstate 40. The park has a snowbird special, Nov. through March $ 260 a month with full hookups. The spots are right on the river (some inland spots also). We will be spending the month of March there this year.

Ernie,

I like the idea of being along/near the river, sounds like a keeper. Once you are there in March I would be interested in what you see as "preferred" campsite numbers, and can you reserve sites in advance.

I plan to mix my winter camping with some boondocking, and spoil myself with some full hook-up CG's.

I'm creating a area/CG file so that this summer I can review/confirm my next winter camping plans....., just want out of Michigan next winter!

Thanks again,

Bob

Bob you can make reservations a year in advance. I will try to post pictures of the peninsula camping (thats what the water spots are called). You camp 4 rv's to a peninsula site.

Here are some pictures from Park Moabi. Points (peninsula) 2 through 25 hold 4 rvs each. Points 15, 16 & 22 hold 10 rvs each. Each point has a little different setup.
We tend to stay away from the points that hold 10 rvs.
