|Willow Beach Harbor has
been totally renovated as of 2011. There is
a new store,
restaurant grille, docks and full hookup
campground, all targeted to be open for business May 2011. If you want to explore this part of the river
or enjoy some good fishing, this is an excellent place to launch from,
but beware you cannot travel north on the river from Willow Beach on Sunday and
The new marina store is
open, about the same size as the previous
store, but new. They still have a few bugs to work out
for the 2011 season, like the automatic doors shown
below in the picture that open as slow as
molasses. Notice the woman pushing them open so she can get out.
Manual push doors would have been fine, but apparently someone thought
boaters are too lazy to push open doors, so they spent a lot money on
doors that don't work. I'm sure they'll get fixed soon.
Click me to see a blow up of this awesome canyon view.
Next door to Willow Beach Harbor to the north you
will find a rather large fish hatchery, well known by the locals.
Local fish planting offers good shoreline fishing just downriver from the launch
ramp.... where all the fishermen are on Friday mornings.
About 4 miles south of Willow Beach Harbor you will see
on many maps a place called "The Caves" just north of where power
lines cross the river. Most people have never seen the caves because they
are just below the water line. For those to have never seen them, the
pictures below prove one of the caves actually exist. The other cave is
further underwater. The cave in this picture below went back into the mountain about 45 ft.
These photos were taken week of Oct 25th, 1999 when Lake Mohave was 14' below
normal level. The lake was lowered to renovate the Katherine Landing
The picture above is looking south, downriver. Just behind the mountain
is where the power lines cross the lake. To locate this place see our MAP
OF LAKE MOHAVE for the GPS coordinates. Bring your scuba gear,
but be careful. I'm told it's dangerous.
docks at Willow Beach have fuel available and rental boats, shown below.
As of March 2011 these new docks do no accommodate boat mooring, so you
must retrieve your boat each night. There are plans to put in a 175 slip
dock extension to the current dock, which will accommodate overnight
dock slip rentals.
This walkway from the
patio to the docks is a great viewpoint to watch ducks and fish down
below. The water here is crystal clear, you're able to see fish
swim around and ducks dive for food. No fishing from the docks or
walkways is allowed.
Most of the Marina will be functioning by
May 2011, such as the Willow Beach Grill. Hot food will be
available to order.
Willow Beach has
a variety of rental boats
to offer at the marina. Call them at 928-767-4747
for information and reservations.
Willow Beach Marina
offers 26' deck cruisers with 220HP, 17'
Campion boat with 60HP, 16' Runabout
boat with 40HP, Discovery
174 Canoes able to hold 3 adults, a
Loon 160 Tandem Kayak, big enough for 2 adults, or a
Loon 138 Kayak good for 1 adult. Prices
range from $45/day to $250/day.
These deck boats are perfect for a day outing with
family for fishing. But beware, swimming in this are isn't very
fun since the water is 54F all the time, regardless of the weather.
The water comes out of Hoover dam at 53F all year long.
This shows the room inside the deck boat, enough for
These little runabouts are fun to sight see the area,
bring the sunscreen.
On a low budget you can have fun paddling around in a
canoe to see the area. Be aware the river flows at about 3-4mph,
you really don't want to paddle too far down river. It's best to
paddle upriver along the shoreline (less current) so you know you
can get back OK.
