Campground: River Island State Park
Location: Parker, Arizona – just north of Buckskin State Park
Site: 9
Cost: $26.67
Services: W/E
Comments: A beautiful park with great views of the Colorado River. We had an end site and absolutely loved it. Not only were there hiking trails right there but we could also drive into Lake Havasu City and explore. River Island State Park is actually a secondary development of Buckskin Mountain State Park. We found this a bit confusing but they are really treated like 2 different state parks, at least to us visitors, i.e., different entrances and different campgrounds. This park does have it’s down dump which was quite convenient.

We didn’t have any cell or internet at this location so we drove into Parker to the public library. It was closed. We could get data on our cell in town and we researched Free Wi-Fi in Parker and found that the McDonald’s had it so we headed over there and got some coffee and sat inside and did our basics (email, bills, etc.). We looked out in the back parking lot and saw at least 20 RVs parked back there, probably trying to get internet too!
