Other Names

Park Moabi, San Bernardino County, Pirate Cove Resort, Colorado River, Beal Slough, Chemehuevi Wash, Old Woman Mountains, Camp Ibis, Camps Clipper, Mojave Road

Last Known StatusOpen

This county park is now operated by the Pirate Cove Resort, a tropical themed desert oasis that overlooks the Colorado River. The property features offroad trails, beach front cabin and trailer rentals, RV hookups, marina, boat ramps, restaurant, bar and general store stocked with cold beverages, snacks, bagged ice, firewood, trail maps, swimwear and beach accessories.

One of the unique features of this park are the campsites located on the peninsula. These sites come with full and partial hookups, are big rig friendly and offer some amazing views of the river and the resort. From the peninsula you can explore the sand dunes and trails or watch the boats go by through the narrow water channels.

The resort is offroad friendly, but keep an eye out for signage that shows where motorized use is permitted. The property also borders BLM land, which has an additional 3,200 miles of designated offroad trails. A small day use fee is charged if bringing your own offroad vehicle, but UTV rentals are available next to the general store.

The resort is open daily, year-round but reservations are recommended for RV sites and cabin rentals, which can be made online.
