    Default Best PLace to Stay in Laughlin

    I am thinking of heading to Laughlin with my family and was wondering where the best place to stay was. Is there a hotel that is more "boater friendly" than others? Where should I go on the river?

    Any additional info?

    When we go there...emphasis on when. We stay at Harrahs. You might get lucky and get a spot inside the main lot upstairs. Otherwise they have a lot across the street. Supposedly it's secure.

    Harrahs is also our favorite place. They have a nice little cove with a beach. They also have two pools, one for families and one for adults only.

    We are going there as well In July. Some friends of ours advised that we could leave the boat in a slip and then stay at Harrahs or Aquarius. Is there a good (safe) marina near there that anyone would trust leaving their boat in for the weekend?

    Be very careful taking your 27' Razor up the river to the Laughlin area. You have to know the river very, very well in order not to hit anything. The water can be very shallow just south of Laughlin. In Laughlin itself there are way to many personnal watercraft to have any fun.

    So, should we head north instead? We are the biggest boat in the group and i have never been out there before, so I'm open to any help/suggestions. I was thinking of heading up to the damn; is that cool?

    Is there anywhere in Laughlin to keep your boat on the water over night? Or do you have to put in and pull out everyday? I'll be staying at the Ramada Express later next month.

    I found a place online called the Laughlin Bay Marina that has slips you can rent by the day and overnight trailer storage. I think I may keep my boat there when we head up next month

    IMO, stay off the river. Head to the lake instead, you'll have way more fun. Launching your boat on the river can be a challenge. If you launch at the park (Riverside) the water is so dam fast it can be a bitch. Then you have low water and jet skis to contend with. North of the bridge the water is deep, but i remember a pretty healthy swell in that area for some reason. And there isn't anywhere to really park and hang.

    If you do the lake, be prepared. Once you get in line (if there is a line) you need to be ready to go. If there is a line, somtimes they have a bus to take you to and fro the parking lot to park your stuff. Tons of places to hang on the lake, or you can make a dam run...Hoover that is.

    The "lake" that you are referring to is Meade?

    This is the way to do it. The part os the river from north of needles bridge all the way up to the damn is just to shallow for your boat. It can be done, but you have to know the river very well. It will probably be a very expensive trip if you decide to take it.

    I agree with what rvrrat had to say. Wake up super early and launch at Katherine's Landing. Their are empty slips to pick up your crew but you will have to check and see if there are any available to keep it overnight. You will have alot more beach and probably a much better time on the lake.

    If you insist on hitting the river I would suggest you launch from Needles and stay south of the bridge. Should be deep enough for your boat and still alot of great beaches for your group.
