Great BLM place for 14+ day stay

Blacktop all the way here. Beautiful Squaw Lake connects to Colorado River. Boat launch for small boats and fishing. Good hiking. Hot showers $1. Good drinking water and mail services available nearby. $75 gets you an annual permit allowing 14 days/month. Sites on parking lots but plenty of…

Camping behind Imperial Dam

Bring your kayak! This is a hidden gem of BLM camping.

There are two shower buildings that are clean and we'll maintained. Tokens for shower are sold onsite.

The downside of this campground is that, because this is tucked under the dam, there is no cell signal for T-Mobile. Camp Hosts were…

Away from everything

It is an easy thirty or forty minutes to a gas station so fill up when you see the Circle K and Chevron next to each other if coming from Yuma.  If coming from the north Quartzsite is probably your last chance for gas.  It is in the middle of nothing and nowhere, a little oasis with little to no…

Beautiful and remote

Once you leave I-8 it’s about 35-55 minutes back to major services. I hear Fischer’s Landing has a new convenience store. The office has beer, soft drinks and a few choices of hard stuff. The RV pads are cement and level. Our rig is 24 feet and we fit very well on the pad. This is a military…

That about says it all, nothing but a parking lot and dirt gravel on the Colorado River. Restrooms and showers but only cleaned twice a week during covid-19. When it's winter everywhere else this is where you want to be. Mostly a good crowd. Doc the campground host that everyone enjoyed is gone.…

Great location, questionable staff

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…

Ideal camping experience. Just perfect. Will return.

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…

Squaw Lake boat-in Camping

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!

It’s an 18 mile dirt road to the park. It is along the lower Colorado river with fishing, hiking, hunting, boating! Hidden gem!

Great river spot!

I always come back to this area because it's so laid back and open. Since we camp here with a canoe we have fun setting up right along the water. Some spots you can canoe out to with your gear and camp! I have had some critters get into my gear here, but all in all it's a quiet, laid back boat…
