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.

I have gone twice, as the neon sign says open now. As far as a week ago not open. Since my time has been wasted twice by miss representation, I have no plans to give any of my money towards this establishment. Get your act together before you lose more potential customers.
Tery very angry but for not much
Do you have to pay to get in the resort if you just want to go to the restrant
Stopped by for their convenient gas pump, and discovered a pretty cool spot. We had a pizza. It was great! Service was very good too. Stop by and give them a shot.
