We launched are boat from here a couple of times. It takes you to the Colorado River at a nice area not too far from the Topock Marina. There is ample parking and a few launches.

This is just a nice place to sit and watch the river go by. If you have a boat to launch, it's easy to launch. If you wish to have a picnic, there are many tables and cabanas with different views of the river.

Love launching from Jack Smith. The wait is always very minimal, we feel safe knowing the San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept patrols the area.
