Headed here during a golf and gamble trip to Laughlin, course is about 25 minutes from there. The course is for straight shooters, however the fairways are forgiving and give you some space. Bring golf balls, they can get sucked up by all the desert wildflowers on all sides. I filled my bag while looking for my lost ball. Nice views a good practice course, not overly challenging but it has moments. Have to say it was a relaxing round and pleasant. It was just off aeration for about 2 weeks so we did get thru that. Super nice staff. Good clubhouse, not sure about the restaurant, there is a small one, wasn't open, possibly limited hours during the summer. Good rates for the area.

This park has plenty of options for visitors. It has a launch ramp that has four launch bays and two beaches. If you are not a boater you will enjoy the well maintained shady picnic tables over looking the river. There is a nominal use fee during peak season (March thru October).

Nestled near the pristine waters of the Colorado River and the Laughlin, NV casinos, Mohave Valley's newest golf destination is El Rio Golf. Designed by Matt Dye, one of the best of the new generation of course architects, the 7,115 yard layout provides a unique blend of challenge and play ability to golfers of all skill levels. The gentle rolling fairways are spread out over 175 acres.
I'm a beginner golfer and found this course to be very forgiving. The fairway was clear, the fringe was solid, and the greens were fast and there were a wide variety of hole layouts. I'll be back again!

Heading to the Colorado river? Come on in and grab some of our Gus's Really good Fresh Jerky. Free laughs and samples!
Found this place on a route 66 road trip that passed through Needles. A really nice selection of jerky here. Everything is premium quality and made locally. Honestly some of the best jerky I've had. If you're a jerky fan then this place is a must stop!

This is a pretty area along the Colorado River. We visited the Catfish Paradise, Pintail Slough and North Dike areas in Arizona to do some birding.
Catfish Paradise has very basic accommodations while the other two areas are primitive. Catfish Paradise also has a nice dock/platform where one can fish or do some birding.
Pintail Slough and North Dike, which are next to each other, were better for seeing birds. North Dike has a boat launch ramp for the fishermen and other boat enthusiasts.

Earth formation believed to be of significance to Mojave Indian warriors.
We spent an hour looking. I Called the number. It is a museum. She said veer to the left. Follow the dirt road. There will be kiosk and a sign. You can't miss it. These have always been the words of doom as they were today.
We also talked to a sheriff's deputy who gave us different directions. We followed both or think we did.
What I did find was a lump of gold (fool's) and a wild horse with foal standing under the only shade tree and some rather large foot prints. The ground has been heavily mined and is soft.
Good luck to those who follow!

A public 18-hole golf course.
Enjoyed golfing there for the first time. The greens were all in great shape except for some damage in hole 18. All in all it is a great municipal course with a great price to match.
