The Buckskin Mountains are a mountain range in western-central Arizona. The range lies just east of the north-south Colorado River, and south of the east-west, west flowing Bill Williams River. The range is part of a three-range sequence of mildly arc-shaped ranges, and two intermountain valleys in the Maria fold and thrust belt, a region in Western Arizona and southwest Southern California, with the Colorado River flowing south through the western part of the belt.
The Buckskin Mountains also extend west into a section abutting the Colorado River. Buckskin Mountain State Park borders the south of the Bill Williams River. The southeast section of the Buckskin Mountains are part of a three-mountain range thrust-faulted system with the Harcuvar and Harquahala Mountains.
The highest peak in the section is Battleship Peak, 2,579 feet at the southwest end, and directly northeast of Bouse in the Ranegras Plain, and the Bouse Wash Drainage. The west end of the mountains abut the north-south Colorado River. Located here is the Gibralter Mountain Wilderness, with Gibralter Mountain, at 1,566 feet.
The entire north perimeter of the range is the Bill Williams River. Buckskin Mountain State Park is at its confluence in the northwest at the Colorado River. Abutting the Bill Williams in the center is the Swansea Wilderness, the northeast contains the Rawhide Mountains Wilderness on both sides of the river.
The northeast of the range borders Alamo Lake State Park, which also borders the Rawhide Mountains on the lake’s northwest side.
