Bullfrog Day Use area reopens

April 4, 2019

The Bureau of Land Management has completed a four-month construction project to replace a failing retaining wall at Bullfrog Day-Use Recreation Area, located along the California side of the lower Colorado River near the Parker Strip.

The recreation area will be available for public use starting on Friday.

The site provides river access, a swimming beach, shaded picnic areas and restroom facilities.

The project addressed structural concerns with the retaining wall, which was built in 1968 and was failing. The new retaining wall provides improved soil stabilization, safety, and beach and river access at the site, according to a press release from the BLM’s Lake Havasu Field Office.

“Improvements like these are part of an on-going effort to modernize our infrastructure and enhance recreational opportunities along the river,” said Samantha Carrasco, acting field manager for the Lake Havasu office. “We are excited to complete this rejuvenation project to create a safer and improved recreation experience for visitors.”
