We launched are boat from here a couple of times. It takes you to the Colorado River at a nice area not too far from the Topock Marina. There is ample parking and a few launches.

Best park for boating, fishing, river play. Mar thru Oct $15 daily fee for boat load/unload. Parking access for trailers+cars right there. Small playground for kids, covered picnic areas around the park.

This is just a nice place to sit and watch the river go by. If you have a boat to launch, it's easy to launch. If you wish to have a picnic, there are many tables and cabanas with different views of the river.

Great place to use the launch ramps and find a beach if you can't have a water craft. We got a really nice, clean beach and had a wonderful time!

Love launching from Jack Smith. The wait is always very minimal, we feel safe knowing the San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept patrols the area.

This park has plenty of options for visitors. It has a launch ramp that has four launch bays and two beaches. If you are not a boater you will enjoy the well maintained shady picnic tables over looking the river. There is a nominal use...More
