Things to do in Parker
Parker, Arizona, on the western border of Arizona on the Colorado River and facing the Whipple Mountains of eastern California, was named after General Eli Parker. General Parker was a Seneca Indian chief who was highly educated in both law and civil engineering. During the Civil War, he became aid-de-camp to General Grant and wrote the terms to General Lee's surrender at Appomattox.
Parker is located 35 miles north of I-10 and about 40 miles south of Lake Havasu, and provides easy access to 16 beautiful miles of the Colorado River, known as the Parker Strip. The river is often populated by boaters, river tubers, water skiers and fishermen, and is home to a wide variety of annual events.
The 270,000-acre Colorado River Indian Reservation surrounds Parker. The Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) is the owner and developer of BlueWater Resort & Casino. The tribes consist of four distinct tribes – Mohave, Chemehuevi, Navajo and Hopi.
