Website needs updated. They got rid of the Game room, Pool table, and TV Room. Nice place overall. But if you forget something in the cabins, like a ring or watch, you'll never get it back, the maids grab it and deny everything. Sticky little fingers. Triple check before leaving. Water is terrible, showers sting your eyes. Bring your own water. Also if it rains, which it rarely does, but it happens, you will be stuck there since its just a mud road for 5 miles back to pavement. The Hosts Mike and Dennis are the only thing holding this place together, and they are super nice and helpful.
This is a great fishing campsite with very limited facilities. The camp is off the highway about 10 miles with the last 4 miles all gravel. The restrooms should be rebuilt not remodeled, very rough condition. Yuma is about 35-40 miles south of this location with lots to see and do.
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!
We stopped by to take a look and get updated information for the website, but didn't spend the night. Dennis, the assistant manager was very friendly and helpful. As previously mentioned, this is an older campground with smaller camp sites that are close together. There are a few larger sites for 40' RV's, and a few that are real nice, large, and private. Our impression was this is a nice recreation area, not neccessarily a destination RV Park. Most people we talked to were there for the fishing, which they say is great! They were catching bass in a short time, directly from the dock! You can rent a 10hp fishing boat for $20 a day. If you want a relaxing place to camp, fish, and explore the lake, this is the best deal in this part of the country.
