Fort Mojave Indian Reservation is located along the Colorado River and covers nearly 42,000 acres in the tri-state area of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The land is divided into three major segments: Mojave County, Arizona; Needles, California; and Clark County, Nevada. Tribal headquarters are located in Needles, California.
Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained by the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe to conduct a Waterpark Feasibility Study to determine the potential for a new waterpark to be owned and operated by the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe. The study process began by meeting with tribal council members, touring the site and region, gathering data through staff and stakeholder interviews, and identifying potential user groups through demographics of the market area. The goal of the study was to determine waterpark market opportunities, evaluate potential sites, recommend potential waterpark size and amenity mix, and make projections regarding project costs.
