MOHAVE COUNTY - It's a little-known fact that the Mohave County Board of Supervisors took extraordinary and generous steps a few years back to say thanks to Mohave County residents who are designated as disabled by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

That thank you came during 2009 when then-Chairman Tom Sockwell, and Supervisors Gary Watson and Buster Johnson, unanimously approved free day use admission for Mohave County disabled veterans to Mohave County parks, including free launching of personal watercraft and boats at Davis Camp Park. That free pass is for all disabled veterans no matter what their disability percentage rating, and also includes free entrance for three others who are in the same vehicle. If more than four people are in the vehicle, an additional $2 per person is charged.

In order to receive free admission to a Mohave County park, disabled veterans must either provide their state of Arizona Disabled Veterans Pass or an identification card issued by the VA indicating the individual has a service-connected disability. However, Mohave County residents and visitors don't have to be disabled to enjoy the county's parks.

Mohave County Davis Camp Park, situated on more than 60 acres adjacent to the Colorado River just north of Bullhead City with almost two miles of beach front access, offers a wide variety of recreational activities, including fishing areas where anglers can hook into trout, catfish, carp and record-sized striper; day use of the swim beaches and picnic ramadas; concrete and dirt boat and watercraft launching areas; RVs spaces with 30 and 50 amp services, with sewage and water hookups; tent camping areas; and fully furnished vacation homes (two are pet friendly) that are for rent.

Hualapai Mountain Park is situated on almost 2,300 acres of picturesque mountain areas ranging in elevation from 4,900 to 8,400 feet southeast of the Kingman. It offers visitors a wide variety of recreational activities including picnicking, 70 different camp sites, hiking, access to quad trails, 35 RV camping sites (11 have barbecue grills), and rustic cabins for rent that will sleep from two to 10 people.

For more information, call (928) 754-7250 or (928) 681-5700.

@V Stokes: Call or go to the Kingman VA CBOC, phone # (928) 692-0080. They can help you with obtaining your card.

Victor, you can stop by the Kingman VA Clinic and they have the capabilities of issuing you a VA card. I would suggest you bring the paperwork that shows you receive payments from the VA. If you have any problems, ask to speak to Terry Bridges - she runs the Kingman VA Clinic and is a retired major. She is a good person and is there to help the vets.

I'm 30% disabled and getting VA payments...but have no card from the VA (since I don't receive VA care?) or AZ. How is the AZ pass acquired?

Thanks for any info...
