“Nice sunset but too loud at night for tent campers”

Reviewed May 17, 2019

Overall Rating

Corvina Beach Campsite on the eastern shore of the Salton Sea is certainly convenient if you're headed north or south along Hwy 111. It's a barren spot without shade, but there are some picnic tables and restrooms. It was windy the night we were there (March 8, 2019), so it wasn't all that pleasant sitting at the picnic table. The main... more

“beautiful view”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed one night at site overlooking the Salton Sean. Quite lovely. However, if you walk down to the water's edge, you'll see fish carcasses due to the increasing salinity of the water (and other issues.) There was a nice breeze and there was no smell that others have experienced. There is a rail line nearby but the noise didn't both... more

“Lovely lake views but some issues ”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Unmarked sites right on the lakeside were great. Probably would not swim in the lake (a bit dirty and very salty). The beach is made up of crushed shells. The campground had very good pit toilets, cold showers, water spigots and rubbish/recycle bins. The train line is about 100 yards away and can be very busy/noisy from time to time t... more

“Stinky, polluted sea right next to highway”

Reviewed Dec 16, 2017

Overall Rating

Sure, it’s pretty with the mountains and the water and the sunset is probably stunning but if you are looking to enjoy the seashore then keep looking. Walk on the beach and all you will hear is the crunch of your shoes on dead fish parts (don’t wear flip flops) and you will smell the stench of rotten fish. This sea is so polluted from ... more

“Quiet place perfect for a night under the stars”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2017

Overall Rating

Great place for a quiet night under the stars. There are several spots with a picnic table and fire pit. Water is available but the spigot thread was non existent so I was not able to hook up hose. Used a gallon jug instead and has enough water to wash dishes and flush toilet. Bathrooms available and was very clean. Showers in a separa... more

“Nice dry camping on the Salton Sea”

Reviewed Jan 24, 2017

Overall Rating

There are three campgrounds in the Salton Sea state recreation area: the main campground at the visitor center, Mecca Beach, and Corvina Beach. Corvina is the farthest south and marked as a "kayak campground." This is a bit misleading. The campground is a long and wide gravel lot that allows for camping along the water's edge. There... more

“A pleasant stay on the Salton Sea”

Reviewed Oct 29, 2014

I read about this site on a blog. We were coming from Quartzsite out of Blythe and around from the south. We go there and found a great spot at the end of the row of sites. There was the occasional train and loud truck that went by but it was very enjoyable. Here is a blog entry that mentions it: http://www.casarodante.org/2014... more
