We made a last min change and stayed here. The location was beautiful. We didn't have much interaction with the staff past the time we arrived. He was very helpful backing in to spot it was dark so he used his carts lights to guide us in. The spots are very tight to get into but once we set up the other campers were very friendly. Location was very pet friendly.
Another great stay. Mike and crew do a great job of making you welcome. Some sites are small and not really good for large units with slides. This not a resort. It is a fishing camp and that's the way we like it!
N. L. left this review using the Directory software: If you are looking for a campground with all the amenities, DON'T come here. The nearest town is Yuma and that is 35 miles from the campground. No laundry. No sewer. No wi-fi. No cable. No stores. No restaurants. However, if you want quiet and great scenery, then this is the place. At only $12 a night it is well worth the drive. They do have a shower house with a men's side and women's side. Each has one shower and two toilets. They also have a pool table and vending machines as well as free ice. The thing I love the most is NO trains and NO highways, just the sound of birds. Be sure to bring your satellite and you will be all set. Enjoy the camaraderie with the fellow campers and the beautiful scenery. Would stay again if in the area. I'm not checking Big Rig Friendly because it isn't really friendly, it's more of a challenge!
We stayed at Lake Martinez for three weeks in February '08. If you are looking for ice cream socials and shuffle board you will not find it here. If you want quiet camping and great fishing with quail and bobcats wandering through camp and coyotes singing at night then you have found the right place. Yes, it's isolated and about a 25 minute drive to the commissary/gas station/cafe/laundry at Yuma proving ground. No, that wasn't a problem for us, if it would be for you, don't camp there. Yes, some of the spaces are a little small. Some of them, read space #17 especially, are primo but you need to check with reservations to see what's available. No, there are no sewer hookups but there is a dump at Fisher's Landing about 2 miles down the road. Overall, I thought it was outstanding, the wife, not so much. We will be back next winter.
