Premise
“The campground is on the Colorado River, has very clean bathrooms, hot showers and amazing beaches and picnic areas. Perfect for a day trip or overnight camping experience. It is $10 for up to 4 people in a car. The campground is primarily staffed by volunteers, who are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.”

Steakhouse

“Just across from Emerald Canyon Golf Course. Strokes is owned by a local (Mel) that knows her business. A great variety of steaks, salads, burgers and weekly specials. Full bar and service with a smile make this a great experience. P.S. The Fish Fry Thursday special is not to be missed! ”

Golf Course
“This beautiful golf course has something for everyone! Some short pars and some longer ones. A great balance of challenging holes and then some that build you back up! LOL... Beware those cute, fuzzy cactus in the rough... they shoot spines. I learned to golf this course with a 7 iron and a putter and still only use 4 clubs to play. Control is better than a distance drive with this course. Beautiful year round, don't miss this local gem. ”

“A local favorite and (arguably) known for the coldest beer in town. Food truck provides an amazing BBQ just outside. This bar is known for carrying the best sports packages year round. So if you don't want to miss the game, this is the place to be! ”

Deli / Bodega
$
“Greatest Pizza's in the Parker area, the best bargain is the 14" Medium I-topping for only $5.99! Their sandwiches are the bomb and the burger, French fries, and large drink for $4.99 is a special that is hard to beat! Also, their homemade pies and cookies are fantastic. Our Tiny Home is right across the HWY from this convenient place. They also have grocery items and a gas station for fueling up your boats and "toys".”

Other Great Outdoors
“A short drive out of Lake Havasu City and you can see the "deepest dam in the world." Not the tallest or the largest, but the one with the deepest piers that extend 300+ feet under water and earth. There are fishing points (check the regs) and drives up into the hilly cliff areas with even better views. There you can spot wildlife, wildflowers and enjoyed the vistas. Seeing the Colorado River and its brilliant blue expanse is special, something you don’t want to miss. ”
