Sorry to say I didn't get a picture the night I was here - try Googling "Davis Camp Park" for some images.

Davis Camp Park is a large recreation park on the banks of Colorado River just north of the bridge over the river connecting Bullhead City and Laughlin NV.

The Mohave County Parks Department has this to say

Whether you are looking for an action packed weekend on the river or seeking a place to relax in the warm breeze through the palm trees, Davis Camp gives you the vacation experience that you are seeking.

We offer vacation homes that are available for rent, spaces with full hookups for your trailer or RV and we have plenty of campsites along the beach for campers and tent spots. Our sanitary disposal (dump) station is provided for use by park guests. Eight shower buildings are located conveniently throughout the park and laundry facilities are available. Day use is permitted at our picnic areas, swim beaches and at our boat launch. We also have Jet Ski rentals through our concessionaire.

The park has a wide variety of visitors and uses which range from watercraft interests, camping, full time RV enthusiasts, and proximity to casino entertainment and as a base for several points of interest in the area. We welcome groups who wish to visit and have meeting facilities for group accommodations. It is our desire to provide you with the best service possible through our maintenance, office and law enforcement staff that live on the premises. The Mohave County Parks Department would like to thank you for your interest in Davis Camp and we look forward to seeing you soon at our park.

    • Look! - there are FIVE active nests on this cliff over Burro Creek. I'm not sure but I think all five have moms hunkered down out of sight in this sunset picture. Image: Five Active Nests, Great Blue Herons, Burro Creek AZ, March 27, 2011.

Give it, Give it All, Give it Now

One of the few things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now. The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now. Something more will arise for later, something better. These things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water. Similarly, the impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.
