Colorado River District Office

The Colorado River District is comprised of three field offices, the Kingman Field Office, the Yuma Field Office, and Lake Havasu Field Office. The district is shares the same building with the Lake Havasu Field Office. Together they oversee the management of almost 5 million acres of public lands in western Arizona. 

Kingman Field Office

The Kingman Field Office oversees 2.4 million acres of public land in northwestern Arizona, and is located south and east of the Colorado River.  The field office is also home to the historic Route 66 National Back Country Byway, as well as the largest wild burro population in the country, located in the Black Mountains.  Resources include portions of the Sonoran, Mohave, and Great Basin deserts, with saguaro cactus, greasewood, Joshua tree, sagebrush, chaparral, pinyon-juniper woodlands, and ponderosa pine forests.

The field office manages nine wilderness areas, 12 Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, and five river segments under consideration for Wild and Scenic River designations. The field office also manages the Grapevine Mesa/Joshua Tree Forest which is considered a National Natural Landmark and one property listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lake Havasu Field Office

The Lake Havasu Field Office oversees nearly 1.3 million acres of public land. The area includes more than 140 miles of the lower Colorado River. The field office boundaries include portions of Arizona's La Paz and Mohave counties, and California's San Bernadino County. 

Recreation is a major program for the area's 10 million annual visitors. In addition to water sports, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, camping, rockhounding, wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing and off-highway vehicle adventures. Five wilderness areas and one wilderness study area provide opportunities for solitude and enjoyment.

Additionally, the field office manages five Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, one river segment suitable for Wild and Scenic River Designation, and one backcountry byway.

Yuma Field Office

The Yuma Field Office manages 1.2 million acres of southwestern Arizona and southeastern California. The area includes 155 miles of the lower Colorado River, a destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors seeking water-related recreation year-round. In winter, the desert becomes a small city as long-term campers escape the northern winter. The river and desert provide habitat for desert bighorn sheep, Yuma clapper rail, flat-tailed horned lizard, and other wildlife, as well as wild burros and horses. 

The field office oversees four wilderness areas, along with significant archeological and historic sites.  It is home to Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, three Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, five properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Betty’s Kitchen National Recreation Trail.
