Summary:

This long county park is across the river from Laughlin, Nev. It has three very distinct areas, south beach dry camping, north beach dry camping, and standard campground sites in the middle.

The north beach is pictured above. The sites are not assigned, mostly tent camping, but some have room for RVs. This was heavy used even mid-week in March. The bathrooms are on a hill, about three flights of stairs above the river.

The south beach is on a ridge, has a few great view sites for RVs and much less used, but once the good sites are full, you just park in a large parking lot.

The hookup campsites looked tight, and not well organized, but workable. We enjoyed our river view and the tent campers were quiet after 11 p.m. or so. But, on a weekend or holiday, without a camp host, I am sure the north dry camping area is pretty wild.
