“Great find in the desert! ”

Reviewed Jan 12, 2019

Overall Rating

Easy access to this site, you would never expect to find a beautiful pond like this in the desert & city of Yuma. Basically it’s a patch of public land surrounded by fields of crops. We pulled up late afternoon in our van, easily found a spot & built a fire. Watched a stunning sunset on one side of the pond as it reflected the mountain... more

“Convenient to Yuma ”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2019

Overall Rating

Nice little oasis in the middle of farms . Plenty of sites to choose from and views of the pond .
Cell service and some tv . Nighttime crop dusters, but not for very long and not late . Everyone is very pleasant. Was extremely windy most of the time we were there and it did get quite cold at night too. Overall a nice place.

“Nice pond with many birds”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a mixed review of a wonderful place which is flawed by crop dusting planes flying much of the night several times a week. The "pros" of this place are the wonderful pond, cool air from the humid area in contrast to the surrounding desert, the many ducks, herons and osprey (watching an osprey dive bomb a fish is a delight). if y... more

“LOTS of snowbirds, enter from west ”

Reviewed Nov 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Overall not super impressed, but I don’t think there’s anything better for free around Yuma. The location is a small pond where everyone lines up around the perimeter, so we didn’t feel like we had much privacy (we could hear conversations from people on the other side on the water) and your neighbors are close. There are a few spots i... more

“Beautiful”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Last February I stayed in one of the nicest BLM areas imaginable. If your into camping, hiking, ATVs, dirt bikes this place has some of the best desert scenery and roads for exploring possible. I put a short video on You Tube: https://youtu.be/vnEuwL-LOmk Also watch for a video on ATVing in this area also.

I camped here over the Christmas holidays into the new year 2016/2017. I was alone in my small trailer at the time but met up with some new travel friends there. It was a quiet, relaxing warm and wonderful stay and we will be going back again one day. The "sites" are close to the access road which can create a little dust but they're o... more

What’s not to love? The weather was perfect and the fishing is good. Just an oasis in the desert. Close to town and there’s a weak signal for T-Mobile users.

A wonderful spot.. luckily we came in from the west from yuma.. the road south has about 6-7 low hanging trees we pushed through without damage but not recommended. The road from the west is rough.. had to drive 15mph for 4 miles in. We had a 27ft rig. Bigger rigs might have a tough time getting around. But a beautiful sp... more

“Nice little pond”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2017

Overall Rating

I like this place although a little crowded. Camping along the pond, so places have low branches, SW side but doable. Good pond to 'Yak in. Fish stocked so it's a fishing from shore pond. Great sunsets.

“Unusual little lake (pond) stop”

Reviewed Jan 27, 2017

Overall Rating

A great way to get out of the RV city of Yuma if you've had enough of the commercial side of things. Or seemingly an oasis for fisherman or bird watchers. Quite friendly, a little busy but it seems in Snowbird season there would always be room for one more. Access is through the agricultural roads so can be a little rough but not horri... more
