Buckskin Mountain State Park is located on the Arizona (Eastern) side of the Colorado River.
Running through Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California, the Colorado River is 1,450 miles long. On the Arizona side, you can see the bordering shore of California.
On the river, you can go boating, (they have a dock and area to launch boats) jet ski, surf, and tube. The river is also a prime fishing spot, either from the shore or on a boat you can catch Trout, Catfish, Panfish, Rountail Chub, Colorado Pikeminnow, and Largemouth Bass.
