Colorado River, Arizona Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

With more than 500 miles of the Colorado River either running through the state or forming its border, the Colorado River is a major part of Arizona. Along its length are expansive canyon walled lakes, cascading whitewater, peaceful flows through wildlife refuges and, of course, the magnificent Grand Canyon.

AT the northern border of Arizona, is Lake Powell created by damming the Colorado River. It is a hugely popular houseboating destination. Below the dam the river cuts through desert terrain past Lees Ferry and into the Grand Canyon. Specacular whitewater rafting trips are available thoughout this stretch from numerous guide companies.

Below the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam impedes the river to create expansive Lake Mead, a favorite week-end get away for the Las Vegas area. Turning south the river runs through lake Mojave to Bullhead, AZ / Laughlin , NV and their many casinos. Lake Havasu, a bit farther south, is a very popular spring break and holiday week-end party destination.

South of Lake Havasu the river runs through wildlife refuges and wilderness areas and has limited access. There is river recreation north of Yuma, but south of the border the Colorado River dries up in the desert north of the Sea of Cortez (Gulf de California).
