That's a good question. I'd guess and say it's about 35 miles.

Don't know how correct the sign is in Moabi, But it says 27 to needles and 25 to channel, So I would say 52

65 miles?!?! damn! my guess was 25-30.

i did this venture in my 19' jet boat on saturday.....we drove to the sand bar to find it was closed so we decided to continue on to the channel. when we got there, it was raining so we made a pass, filled up at the marina then went back through the channel and headed back to needles. maybe in havasu for no more then 30-45 minutes.

needless to say, my ass and back hurt.

33 miles based on Bullhead Bully's calculations. No way it is 65 miles.

Saw you making your way threw the mess that was the channel on Saturday. I was going the other way and tried to get your attention but couldn't. Your boat looked great.

So how much further to Black Meadows

So we got 31-33 miles from Needles to the Channel, how much more to BM. In the near future myself and a few peeps from the park in Needles are going to BM in the early morning for breakfast(restaurant still open?), then back to the channel. If anyone's interested let me know, just in the early planning stages.

69 miles for BHC to Parker Dam ....BML is about 5 to 8 miles less
