Set up Camp

The Hualapai Mountains, about 48 miles east of Laughlin, are home to the highest peak in Mohave County at 8,417 feet. With more than 10 miles of hiking trails, cabins, RV and tent camping, the Hualapai Mountain Park is quite popular amongst nature enthusiasts.
Due to its high elevation, cool temperatures make it a great spot to stop for a picnic or nature walk throughout the summer. Besides foot trails, there are also bike, equestrian and ATV trails around the park.
If you are interested in a guided hike, the park superintendent or a ranger can accommodate groups for an interpretive hike. Contact their office at 928-681-5700 for availability.
Just last year, the park opened an 18-hole disc golf course with the help of the Kingman Disc Golf Club. A map of the course and scorecards may be downloaded under the disc golf tab at parks.mohavecounty.us/parks/hualapai-mountain-park/.
Day use passes to enter the park are $10 per vehicle, or you can purchase an annual day-use pass for $40 if you are a resident of Mohave County. Dry camping is $20 a night per vehicle.
If you want to spend the night, or even a week, there are several accommodations available within the park.
There are 24 cabins for rent that sleep 2-14 people. Of the 24 cabins, 19 are fully equipped with beds, stoves, refrigerators, heaters, electricity, water, restrooms and showers. Some of these include fireplaces and wood stoves. The other five cabins do not include restrooms or showers, but there is a facility across the street from them. Renters must bring their own bedding, towels, and cooking utensils. For reservations, call 877-757-0915.
There are two RV camping areas within the park, which are all full hook-up spots. Pioneer Park is the original RV park and can accommodate vehicles up to 30 feet. Elk Ridge can accommodate any size vehicle. Call for reservations or book online at http://www.mcparks.com/online-booking/.
There are 70 individual campsites, which are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Most sites include picnic tables and grills, with water available at some. There are three outfitter tents that sleep four people, which may be rented. Guests must provide their own bedding.
Pets are allowed at the camping sites for a $5 fee per pet (max of two pets per site.)
There is a 14-day stay limit at all cabins and campsites.
If camping isn’t your thing you can stay at the Hualapai Mountain Resort lodge, offering standard rooms and suites, which all come with satellite TV and free Wi-Fi. Call 928-757-3545 for reservations.
Stop by the Hualapai Mountain Resort Restaurant and Bar for a meal with indoor and covered outdoor seating. Elk can frequently be spotted roaming around the resort so it is a great area for watching wildlife.
They have a large menu with sandwiches, pasta, steak, seafood and homemade desserts. On Saturday-Sunday they also offer a breakfast menu from 8 a.m.-11 a.m. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday-Thursday (11 a.m.- 8 p.m.), Friday (11 a.m.- 10 p.m.), Saturday (8 a.m.- 10 p.m.), Sunday (8 a.m.- 8 p.m.), and closed Monday-Tuesday.
There is also a general store by the restaurant, which sells snacks, ice, propane and more.
