A few years ago, we held a garage sale, and promised the kids if they helped work it, we’d take the money and do something fun with it. With the summer months waning and looking for a budget-friendly vacation to someplace we hadn’t been before, we headed out the Laughlin on the Colorado River.
There were big plans for Laughlin at one time, but destiny had something else in mind ….
Davis Dam is located just upstream of the city; it forms the modest Lake Mojave. The dam’s purpose is to re-regulate flows from Hoover Dam and to generate hydropower. The dam plays a unique role here which I wrote about in this post: The Colorado River at Laughlin: Life along a regulated river
To get there, head north on route 163, and at the top of the hill, turn right at the first dirt road that you can. It isn’t marked (or at least it wasn’t last time we were there), but it truly isn’t that hard to find. Turn right on to the road and bear to the left. (Search Telephone Cove Road Laughlin on Google Maps.)
I am not sure why it is called Telephone Cove, as there are no phones here, and no evidence of old telephone lines that I saw. We didn’t even have cell service.
So for a relaxing day along the Colorado River, check out Telephone Cove.
