La Paz County

La Paz County is a county in the western part of the U.S. state of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 20,489. The county seat is Parker. The name of the county is the Spanish word for "the peace", and is taken from an early settlement of La Paz along the Colorado River.

La Paz County was established in 1983 after voters approved separating the northern portion of Yuma County, making it the only county to be established after Arizona became a state in 1912, and currently the second youngest county in the United States.

La Paz County is home to year-round recreation! The Colorado River provides an outdoor playground for visitors in the spring and summer. The mild weather of fall and winter bring off roaders to our beautiful desert landscape.
