Willow Valley

Willow Valley started out as an RV park in the 1950’s. There were lots that accommodated an Buick and a Tear Drop trailer, 40X80. As air conditioning got better, less expensive and more reliable, more people found their way to Willow Valley.

Willow Valley with the access to the Colorado River is the only place from the dam at Mohave Lake to the dam a Lake Havasu where there is a place to launch a boat in the Colorado River in a private gated marina. There are launch places in Bullhead City as part of the city park system and there is Jack Smith Park in Needles, CA and Topock Marina in Golden Shores.

Willow Valley has grown to approximately 1650 lots. Some are still 40X 80, but there is acreage of up to 10 acres! Most people are aware of the “Bird side” and the “Tree side”. The Bird side is on the north side of King St, nearest to the Colorado River. It is the oldest part of Willow Valley. Immediately south of King St is the Trees, named because most of the streets are named for trees. The lots are generally bigger, usually 60x 110. Then there is a homes only area next to the marina.

What most people don’t realize is that Willow Valley includes the east side of Hwy 95. There is a homes only neighborhood south of Cottonwood and west of Elm. There are homes on acreage from Willow Drive to north side of South Drive. And there are manufactured homes and site built house north of Willow Drive and west of Aquarius all the way north to King St.

Willow Valley Association is responsible for the marina, beach and clubhouse. The marina has two ramps for launching into the Colorado River. There is fenced onsite parking for your boat trailer. Marina Park is grassy and has trees. It has a picnic area, grills, tables, ramadas, rest rooms, a great place for an afternoon. Down the road is a sandy beach, it accommodates most everyone. The locals bring down a cooler and lawn chairs to enjoy what is happening on the Colorado River.

North on Willow Valley beach is another beach, First Indian Beach owned by the Fort Mohave Indian Tribe. It’s a great beach, too. Be sure you have a permit, issued by the Tribe, to use this beach.

The Clubhouse has schedule events. One of the most popular is the breakfast. The first Sunday of every month, October thru May there is a community breakfast. For $4.00 you get eggs, sausage, pancakes or french toast, coffee and juice. It’s a wonderful place to meet your neighbors.

There is also Cimarron Lake, a homes only community which has marina privileges. It is located east of Hwy 95 and north of King St.

The population is diverse. We have the weekenders or sun birds. They come to enjoy the sun and the river usually from April thru September. We have snow birds who visit from after Thanksgiving until the first of May, enjoying the mild winters. The of course there are those of us who live in Willow Valley the year round.
