A new eatery, market, swimwear boutique, gas station and arcade has opened at Big Bend Resort on the Parker Strip.
The California-side store will be a brand new place for boaters to stop on the Colorado River while visiting Parker this summer. It was built after the operator was asked to demolish the concession it operated for decades at Buckskin State Park on the Arizona side of the river at the end of its contract (story at the link).
The new beach-themed, dockside facility will serve a similar purpose as the one before it: sell food, drink, gas, apparel and supplies to boaters and RVers, and entertain families while they’re there.
If past history is anything to go by, the new place will be a fixture for years to come; the one at Buckskin was in business for 46 years.
