Outdoor activities

Grab your hiking boots or comfy sneakers because Laughlin is filled with trails for every adventurer.

Take a nice leisurely stroll on the Laughlin Riverwalk, a paved scenic path that can also be used to get from one casino to another, connecting six of the seven resorts along the river.

Or go on an exhilarating hike at Grapevine Canyon Trailhead or Colorado River Heritage Trail Greenway Park & Trails. You can also wind your way through the Laughlin Labyrinths – nine stone mazes that are both intriguing and energizing. They are said to bring peace and reenergize the soul and are known to reduce blood pressure and help with chronic pain and insomnia.

For another relaxing activity, hit the links on one of Laughlin’s championship golf courses. Get in a challenging round or two and enjoy the surrounding beauty and nature while you play.

Or for some adventure, hop aboard a UTV rental or take a ride in a Slingshot with 220 Tours. The Mojave Desert is your playground!

Wherever you go, be sure to bring your camera! With more than 300 species of migrating birds, incredible mountain landscapes, and desert flowers in the spring, you’re sure to find some picture-perfect photo opportunities.

Perhaps you want to embark on a family adventure day? Then daytrip to Oatman, Arizona, a historic old mining town on the historic Route 66, and now considered to be a ghost town. While in Oatman, you'll see the infamous herd of donkeys roam along Main Street. You can also enter a reconstructed mine and see a gun show and dual reenactment.  

You could also spend the day fishing together on Lake Mohave at Katherine Landing which has gorgeous blue water and white, sandy beaches. You can opt to rent a boat, or fish from the shore in nearby coves. All necessary fishing equipment can be purchased at the marina store and when you're done, there’s a fish cleaning station near the launch ramp.
