Davis Camp

Enjoy fishing, boating and swimming on the Colorado River near Bullhead City.

The location of this outdoor playground was once a bustling village built for the workforce that constructed Davis Dam in the 1940s. There were more than 100 houses here, along with stores and services needed to support the workers. The tiny metro area hugged the Colorado River south of the construction site. Today, the serene watery backdrop remains the same but the village has been converted into one of the most well-equipped recreation areas along Arizona’s West Coast.

Get on the Water

Visitors set up along nearly 2 miles of developed shoreline that feature shaded camp sites, picnic sites, a swim beach, a dog park and a boat launch. Visitors bring their own watercrafts year-round, and outfitters offer rentals during the warmer months. On the north side of the camp, choose from multiple palm-studded picnic sites that line the river. Each site has a ramada and grill plus a rocky beach that leads right into the river. The south side of the camp offers RV sites and brings in views of the Laughlin casinos downriver. Just below Davis Dam, anglers find a honey hole for striped bass.

RV Paradise

Visitors can stay in original homes at Davis Camp that have been converted to vacation rentals. But as frequent visitors to Arizona’s West Coast know, this area is an RV paradise. Most of the original homes were relocated to make room for pull-through sites for RV adventurers to enjoy the water. Nearby state parks along the river include Lake Havasu State Park and Buckskin Mountain State Park. Here, high-flying traffic is replaced by travelers who prefer to take the slow lane to appreciate the natural beauty of the area.

Historic Route 66

Fans of the Mother Road find some of the best-preserved ties to the past in Arizona’s northwest corner. Here, two of the state’s most character-rich towns hold onto their Route 66 heritage. In nearby Kingman, the historic visitor center presents a huge collection of memorabilia at the Arizona Route 66 Museum. Visitors also wind through a remote mountain pass to visit Oatman. The construction of Route 66 through this area was an engineering marvel, and the captured-in-time Western town proudly holds onto its rugged character.
