Havasupai, AZ

Many people will tell you Havasupai is the most beautiful place in Arizona, and I’d be hard pressed to disagree. Also known as the Grand Canyon’s Garden of Eden, the blue-green waters of Havasu Creek flow from the red rocks of the canyon down to the Colorado River, creating a spectacular canyon full of life and awesome waterfalls. The Havasupai (people of the blue-green waters) still make the canyon and the village of Supai their home, and only let a certain number of people enter per day (day hiking is not permitted, nor practical). Posted above is the “Vlog” style video from our recent three day trip to the campground at Havasu Falls. If you’re ready to go, make your reservations here!

Lake Havasu State Park, AZ

Well, it’s been a pretty hectic last couple of months, but it’s almost spring break, and for many of us in Arizona and Southern California that means one thing – Havasu. If you’ve never been to Havasu for spring break, you’re simply missing out (just do a google search, pictures are always better than words). However, Havasu is actually a great destination year round, and Lake Havasu State Park is the go-to campground.

Jumbo Rocks – Joshua Tree National Park

Jumbo Rocks is aptly named, and is the biggest campground in Joshua Tree National Park. If you’re looking for a campground full of great sites, easy access to trails, and big huge boulders to climb when you step out of your tent, this is the place to be.

Picacho State Recreation Area, CA

Picacho State Recreation Area, or Picacho SRA, is a beautiful estuary that protects 8 miles of the California side of the Colorado River. The park has a rich history of mining and the old town of Picacho, but now is a haven for birds and birdwatchers, boaters and anglers, and – of course – campers.

Mather Campground – Grand Canyon National Park

Mather Campground is the main campground on the West Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, located right outside Grand Canyon Village. With over 300 sites, Mather is one of the biggest campgrounds we’ve been to, but it’s usually full every single night, and is open year-round. We’ve already been to Mather twice, once in the heart of winter and again in the peak of summer. This review will focus on what the campground is like in the summer, but check out the video of our winter trip, where we stayed the first night at Mather before backpacking through the canyon.

Kayenta Campground – Dead Horse Point State Park, UT

Dead Horse State Park sits at the end of Utah 313, occupying a slim peninsula that  ends in Dead Horse Point, a spectacular viewpoint of the Colorado RIver as it meanders towards Canyonlands National Park. Here is a great little video interview about the park from the Colorado River Re-Storied team, featuring ranger Megan Blackwelder.
