Located just 1 mile from the Parker Dam on the Arizona side of the Colorado River, "Casa Del Rio Resort" is the perfect getaway to relax or enjoy just about any outdoor sport or activity. With our minimal rainfall, warm winters and the river to keep us cool in the summer, we truly are a year-round resort.
Originally built in the 1930's, Casa Del Rio was purchased and remodeled in 1982 by the Moses Family into the Colonial Spanish style resort that it is today. With only two studio apartments just steps from the river, we are very quaint and private. There is a gas station and market for your convenience across the Highway and of course the famous "Paradise Cafe" for lunch and dinner...all within walking distance.
6 miles south of us is the "Emerald Canyon Golf Course", one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Arizona. There are also numerous trails and self guided nature hikes...all with-in a 10 minute drive from us. 13 Miles south of us is the Blue Water Casino for all your gambling needs and 1 mile further is the town of PARKER with banks, gas stations and grocery, hardware, and beachwear stores. There is also a hospital for emergencies and limited services.
26 miles to the north of us is Lake Havasu City with all the accoutrements of a big city...movie theatre, restaurants, Penneys, Walmart, Home Depot and a beautiful "Aquatic Center". They also have a very sophisticated hospital and well trained doctors that can handle almost anything.
A free launch ramp and fishing facility is located just up the road for access to the lake (Lake Havasu) and its endless recreational possibilities. Houseboat, Pontoon and bass boat rentals are all available at nearby Havasu Spring Resort up on the lake...And jetski and waverunner rentals are available 6 miles south on the river.
Temperatures can be a scorching 100 - 115 degrees in the summer months but it is a very dry and confortable heat that gives you a good excuse to float in the river all day. Winter months offer us glorious 60 -80 degree temperatures nary a cloud in sight. The "shoulder seasons" (April & October) however, is the best time of year on the river with it's 90 degree days, cool evenings, reduced pricing, and NO crowds.
Come see for yourself why Casa Del Rio Resort is the best of ALL worlds...
