Definitely want to launch out of Riviera or a park more north. McIntyre is further south. We will be hanging out at Jungle Beach by Hidden Beaches. I am going to put together more info all about this soon.

FYI....don't use the shell station off intake road in Blythe. My credit card got skimmed there last night. They went on a Walmart shopping spree today in Phoenix.

Yes, it's shallow on Fridays but not the end of the world. I will be providing details about where to go and not go on the water. The path is pretty basic as long as you pay attention.

Water has been low...normal low on Friday.  But not low enough to not go out.

I wrote up a thread on the navigation of the river between the 10 freeway and Jungle Beach. You can find it here:

I am going to work with the park on that. They have already promised me that they would drop the cost of launching to $15/day for our group. I am also going to ask them if they will allow overnight boat parking there so you dont have to leave your boat parked at the Hampton

Also, here is some info about parking at the Hampton....

Blythe has a lot of crime in the area. I have heard of some theft in the past (beach bags, ice chests, etc). I highly suggest you cover your boat if you park it there and take anything with you into the hotel room that can walk away. There is very minimal parking at the Hampton. All of the spots are single car spots except for 4, which are outlined in green below. There is a large dirt parking lot out font. You can gain access to it on the corner that the red arrow is pointing. It goes without saying, the Hampton Inn and SoCalJetBoats are not responsible for any stolen items.
