This park is great for cheap boat lunching (get the yearly pass), Farmers market on the 1st Saturday of the month...lots of great venders, most with samples, lots of folk art and sometimes live music. Also a decent gun show 2 or 3 times a year.

Also a spa.

Reviewed By Debby G - Bullhead City, Arizona

We went as a group. Staff could not figure out what the special was - or if they had enough food in the kitchen. This was a planned outing, and reservations had been made. The staff got wine and drink orders wrong, food orders wrong, and a couple of our group had to wait until the rest of us were almost finished. The food was marginal; certainly no what you'd expect at such a high price. Never going back.

Katherine’s Landing

Reviewed By southwest4life

Not real bad overall but just kind of run down in a lot of areas. Inquired about a boat rental but just seemed to burden the ladies at the desk by asking questions. It is beautiful scenery around there. Cannot get in with Nat Park Pass or paying the daily fee to get into marina. a coyote ran right thru the parking lot when we pulled in. That man on the boat dock running the rentals was very nice to speak with.

Desert River Kayak

Reviewed By wrae_lo - Tucson, AZ

Desert River Kayak arranged our last-minute trip through Black Canyon. Service was great, friendly and knowledgeable - I also liked that they were so prompt! I've gone with outfitters who made me wait at either end repeatedly, and I didn't care for the experience!

The gear was in good order and worked well for what we were doing. We had a lovely time kayaking on the Colorado on the crystal blue-green waters. Highly recommend the trip for active, adventurous types!

Heard lots about Lazy Harry's Friday for fish dinner on a recommendation from a friend. It is a sleazy bar & grill in a bad part of town. Cant say enough about this dive, its a local bar that serves frozen food heated up. We will never go back!!!

What a beautiful walk along the Colorado River,and it rain a little believe it not. We walked in and out of the casinos along the way. Maybe we should have stayed out of them,lost a lot of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$,but had a lot of fun. We gave up about 2/3 the way back an had to take the water taxes back t Harres. Tired but a good time.

Riverfront

Busy Laughlin waterfront area with many activities and scenic riverwalk.

Reviewed By PhlegmMaster - Phoenix, Arizona

During one of my many visits to Laughlin, I walked the Riverfront (also known as the Riverwalk) on multiple mornings.

Walking along the Riverfront is perfect for getting your thoughts in order. I enjoy coming out right after sunrise when there aren't too many people around, making it a peaceful and contemplative jaunt. Coming out in the evening is a different experience, since it can get quite lively, especially between the Colorado Belle and the Edgewater, where folk seem to congregate, and sometimes there's even a live band playing on the weekends!

Details:

Distance: 1.2 miles from the starting point, the Riverside parking lot, to the end of the trail at the Laughlin River Lodge.

Time: 45 minutes to an hour (one way). I'm in average condition & health, so it'll take more or less for you depending on your personal health level.

To be clear, the path is not completely continuous from one end of the casinos to the other, but it's still an enjoyable way to pass the time. Also, the entire end-to-end layout of the Riverwalk is NOT completely accessible by wheelchair. Beginning at Don Laughlin’s Riverside, you go past the Aquarius, the Regency, and then the Edgewater. Here at the point where you make your way to the Colorado Belle, you will encounter a set of stairs leading up to the Colorado Belle level. At the Colorado Belle if you want to continue your walk, you will need to enter the casino, go out the front of the hotel, and then head to your left, where you can reconnect with the walk by the Pioneer. At the Pioneer, you will come across the next set of stairs leading downward (near the water fountain/oasis display). After this, you make your way along the path to the Golden Nugget, and finally you reach the Laughlin River Lodge, where the Riverwalk eventually ends after a bit more walking.

If you want to reach Harrah's, you need to leave the Riverwalk. Near the River Lodge taxi dock, there are stairs leading up to the backside of the hotel rooms, and from there you'll need to navigate up to the parking garage area. From here you can reach the main road, Casino Dr. Beginning at the River Lodge, and then walking along Casino Dr. to reach Harrah's, this portion of your journey is about .8 of a mile and uphill. It took me about 25 minutes. So, the total time from the Riverside Casino to Harrah's using the Riverwalk and then Casino drive, took just under 1.5 hours for the complete 2 mile walk. If you walk at a very slow pace, give yourself 2 hours.

Enjoy your walk & Be Happy!
