Lake Martinez Recreation Facility Featured
No dump station, no sewer hookups, NOT big rig friendly. Sites 1-4 are 10 feet apart..very crowded (the other sites are better, but not much). The city water is locally treated and smells terrible. The bathrooms are clean, but old and smelly. The road into the camp is suitable for buckboards..not your big Motorhome..go slow! Dirt roads mean lots of dust. So much for the bad news. The good news is that the two managers are great people that do a great job of running the place. The lake is very nice and is great for kayaking or other boating. The camp is pretty quiet..a bit noisy on the weekends with lots of people enjoying their time off. As it was noted before..this is a fishing camp and they like it that way. It is a 25 minute (one way) drive to Yuma. To the base at Yuma Proving Grounds it is 15 minutes one way. The fishing is pretty good..the sunsets are spectacular!
