Wonderful clean, sandy beaches, swimming cove, tables and camping if desired. The crystal clear Colorado River is beautiful as it winds around the bend. Stay for the sunset!

Great area for young and older. This is a kid friendly area. Less boat traffic and more beach area. Close to everything yet away from the fast pace. The water is warmer and the area is well maintained.
