Absolutely my favorite parking spot on the coast. A short beach trail brings you directly from the campground to the ocean beach. Fall asleep listening to the roar of the ocean in a safe location away from the tides. It’s a gravel parking lot situated right next to the ocean. I have seen rigs of all sizes, but all must be self contained to stay. There’s no tenting here. The casino is a short walk away for games, food, drinks, bathrooms, and a shuttle to town. You could stay for a couple weeks free when I was there. It’s dry camping and there’s no other amenities, but this place became one of my favorite places for R&R on the weekends.
Found this place with the help of local. There are quite a few spots along the road, some easy to get to some a little harder. We found an awesome spot under some big trees. Pulled my 22' travel trailer in with no problems. Bring a lot of bug spray!!!! Fishing, hiking, ATV. Next to military base so was shockingly surprised to be woken up by the sounds of bombs going off and machine gun fire.🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 Crazy pre-war bridge with swastikas on it. Apparently this used to be an Arizona highway symbol, changed after the war.
Quiet, clean, remote little military family camp on Lake Martinez with concrete RV sites and full hook ups, 50 amp electric only, but they have a loaner 30 amp adapter if they can find it. Park models and cabins available for those who do not tent camp or RV. Various types of water craft available for rent and limited docking for your own boat.
Easy to get camp site reservations in Summer. Have not tried here in winter as the place fills up with military retirees/ snow birds.
Staff on the other hand is mentally lost at best. Seems like they don’t really know what’s what most of the time ( refer back to the 50/30 amp adaptor that they usually can’t find as their storage location is on the floor beside the desk). The store is adequately stocked with alcohol, USMC souvenirs, but very lacking the things campers need most often, ie toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap etc. they don’t even sell popcorn, how can one camp without popcorn.
Despite the “lost in space” staff and the “non” mercantile in a remote place, I give this place 4 stars as it is quiet, inexpensive and a great little spot away from the city.
Park is currently near full with contractors working the border wall. Most are ok but there are some that are very discourteous, inconsiderate towards others. Management allows them to race up and down the roads with their dirt bikes and 4 wheelers.
Streets are pea gravel spread on top of what used to be pavement. Sites are soft sand and gravel that is not level or maintained by the park. Pool is old and in need or replacement and only receives maintenance once or twice a week at best.
Electric is metered @ $.20/kWh. Water is from a well and untreated,very hard and very salty you can wash with it but most get their drinking water from one of many “salt free” water dispensing station around Yuma.
I’ve lived here 2 years and have Seen both management and maintenance go down hill. The owner pays the place a visit once a year. This park for the price, compared to others in Yuma, is livable but is a bit outdated and run down.
This place is listed as “55 +” however the owner allows all the contractors as it provides him with income that he normally would not have during the non-snowbird season.
I camped here with my wife and two children (6 and 7). It was awesome. Our site had a bunch of large rocks for the kids (and my wife and I) to climb around. With the river, the trails, and all the rocks, there is tons to explore. And, the whole area is just gorgeous. Ideal camping. Getting to the grounds requires around an hour on a dirt road. We were able to get there in a 2WD minivan without issue.
I really liked my stay. Limited to no WiFi Verison.
We were planning on staying at Walmart for the night after getting groceries, but Yuma city ordinance doesn't allow overnight parking. The casino was 5 miles away. Lots of other campers/rv's/travel trailers in the over night RV lot. Plenty of room to put out slides. The people in front of us had chairs and a grill set up. You can stay up to 3 nights. They have a breakfast buffet seven days a week, and dinner buffet on the weekends. There are trash cans. No water or dump station. People were using generators.
We enjoyed this campground, but we were lucky to be able to boat-in. The sites are not accessible by vehicle and your gear must be carried in from the parking lot. More wildlife here than other similar desert areas. Protect your food from raccoons and Burros!
