Crossroads Campground -- Parker Strip

Crossroads Campground is on the California side of the Colorado River halfway between Parker and Parker Dam. RVs, trailers, and trucks are not permitted on the Parker Dam, so unless you are car camping you will need to access it from the south. This is a BLM campground with a host, two dozen sites, $5/night, 14 night maximum, no hookups. Most sites are big enough to park several vehicles, but only one is included in the $5 There is little or no space between sites. Each site has a picnic table and grill. Half a dozen of the sites are just up a steep bank from the river, (with no river access) these tend to be the smaller sties. A path from the north end leads to a small shaded gravel beach, and from the south end a path leads to the large unshaded sandy beach by the next campground over. It is pretty noisy during the day with the motorboats, generators, and birds. The campground was about 2/3rds full the Thursday night I stayed. The wild burros seem to mainly stay further north where the grazing is better. Verizon signal is marginal.
