“Great hiking, scenic drives, and photography spots. Hieroglyphics and red rock formations. About an hour from Las Vegas. Make sure to fuel up before you turn off the freeway- there are no services in the park. Great visitor center and paid entry.”

“Campers and those traveling around Arizona by RV have spoken very highly about this state park; you simply have to visit Buckskin Mountain, State Park. The Colorado River is the highlight, where you can jet ski or go boating, and there are even floating bars on the water. It is a truly relaxing and fun experience in the outdoors.”

“There is a ranger station at the entrance, where you will have to pay a small fee of $7. The friendly rangers will help you to find one of the many hiking trails. Some of the trails are easy, and some are hard. If you're adventurous enough, you can hike all the way to Hualapai Peak, Hayden Peak, or Aspen Peak!”
