Your lodging options at the marinas are fairly limited to the lodge or an RV Park.  However, we feel that staying overnight at these may be preferable to driving back to Las Vegas, Laughlin, Bullhead City and will give you a chance to relax.

It's easy to underestimate how exhausted you will be after a day of sun, water and exploring.  Even if you are only spending the day boating, a night at the lodge (and maybe a steak dinner) will be appreciated.

Renting an overnight boat slip can be tricky so do this in advance.  Some marinas only rent slips for lodge guests with a two night minimum stay.

If you don't have a lot of time, renting a patio boat or powerboat will give you an opportunity to explore and consider a trip for next year.
