Anyone frequent Havasu or Parker Strip areas and can share the best places to launch, park, hotels, etc? Finally cooling down a bit so those areas are less crowded and bearable temp wise in fall and want to plan a trip in the couple of weeks.

Used to frequent both Havasu and Mohave, but I think that things have likely changed in the last 40 years
Never boated on the river below Parker Dam. We normally camped and launched at Black Meadows when the London Bridge was still a pile of numbered blocks in '69 or '70. By the mid-late '80s we had friends with vacation homes to stay at, but the Havasu City area was becoming a drunken brawl dominated by large offshore boats, might be better now. I really enjoyed running North up the gorge when the water level was up, but it can change in hours.
I always liked Catherine's or Cottonwood up on Mohave. A little further drive, but LOTS of elbow room on the lake and Laughlin is great for hotels, dining and nightlife.
