    Laughlin river resorts

    Is there any resorts with a beach on the river that will let me beach my stand up 2 stroke skis while I stay at the resort?

    I have yet to ski there but I go down there all the time and it is very informal. Plenty of random beaches to beach/park. Or, are you looking for a fancy marina? The locals mostly launch across the river in Bullhead city but for about 2-3 miles either side it does not matter.

    ---->>>>>Oh, I just re-interpreted your comment...do you mean like overnight? Everyone just puts their ski back on their trailer and parks it for the night.

    Re: Laughlin river resorts

    Awesome thx. Ya I'm fine with loading them up each night. Is there any with a launch ramp or somewhere to launch them? Any recommendations for any of the resorts? Preferably with a bar?

    I believe just about every hotel on the Laughlin side has a place to launch, park, drink, look at chicks, etc. I am actually going down there to ride on May 4th...and, riding from Laughlin to Topock which is a very popular run. I google Laughlin to Topock and this thread probably answers many of your questions...but, I will certainly do a write-up after May 4th.

    Presently the most friendly resort in regards to PWC's is AVI. They have a private launch, very nice, super nice giant cove right on the river, with plenty of beach. They allow all forms of PWC's and boats, etc.

    Only two draw backs in my opinion. Your kinda far south from the rest of the strip, which is no biggie if your not into the "strip" It requires a short uber ride if you partake or a short drive if you don't. (the Indian reservation cops can be quit the adam henrys) From the water its pretty close run up to the dam, just be aware of the rather large 5mph area by Harras, the water cops are complete adam henrys, in their defense that area is full of PWC rentals and has the "lake lice" deserved rep that comes with it.

    The other draw back of AVI, well its AVI. The staff, particularly the native americans can be kinda rude, and service is very hit or miss.

    Other than that, if not a holiday, its a pretty fun beach and been riding a stand up on that stretch since 1983. (AVI is not that old, but I am)

    Oh and actually it is the only resort that really has a PWC/boat area. Harras used to, but its totally regulated and not even sure if they allow much in regards to PWC's anymore. (maybe?) All the other ones dont have much of a beach, so to speak. We used to slum it hard core at the Pioneer and tote our stand ups to their beach, which is small and rocky. Not sure if they would allow that anymore? If they do its centrally located, inexpensive and kinda a cool scene for riding. We used to put kem-lights, i.e. glow sticks on our skiis and one on our vest, wait till the water coppers went in for the night, and then ride with the lights of the casinos, jump the massive wakes of the water taxis and free style in front of the crowds on the board walk. Now those were great times.

    Dont get caught with oil, gas and batteries in your room at the pioneer, we would just spiff the maids to keep them hush hush. lol

    Shame about Harrahs - I was going to suggest that but hadn't been there in a few years. Most of the shoreline is pretty rocky along the river in that neck of the woods.
