“Unplug and Unwind”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2019

Overall Rating

Checked with local BLM office on how to get to property. Unpaved road 1/2 mi. before the lake. No overnight parking at most of the jettys near the lake. There is a designated camping area opposite of the 2 dumpsters and catty corner to the picnicking/boat launch area (all designated camping sites are back in.) Above the boat launc... more

“Excellent Boondocking Location”

Reviewed Mar 16, 2019

Overall Rating

We followed the map directions from the South without any problem. Beware of farm tractors - they move onto the roadway faster than you might expect. Once there we drove past the picnicing crowd and fishing folks. We then checked out the boat parking and toilets, but continued north to a blocked dirt road on the left. We chose the ... more

“Great”

Reviewed Feb 27, 2019

Overall Rating

At least a hundred sites dispersed by the water and in many other places including two large parking lots. Two places to launch the largest at the day use area. We stayed at the second launch which had a fishing dock. We had 2 kayaks and a paddle board. Went out 3 days. Busier on the weekend with boats and fishermen. Everyone very acco... more

“So many mosquitoes!!!”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2019

Overall Rating

There are some really cute sites along the lake if you are lucky to snatch one! We continued a little further on the road and finally found an empty one (with lots of trash, but we cleaned it up and set up camp)... but soon discovered how crazy the bugs were. By then, they were everywhere in the bus too. They are small mosquitoes and w... more

“Nice and quiet”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice lake, limited "Lake Sites", I lucked out. More sites on other side of road up on a plateau. Palm trees reminded me of Tropical stuff. Very nice. Little reefs creating a bay of sorts, not sure I'd go swimming in it, but nice to look at.

“Great Spot... with a Lake”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2017

Overall Rating

Really nice, except in the evening when, unlike most desert locations, this one has water so mosquitos attack. Be careful for that. During the day, no problem. Beautiful reservoir and several lagoons and canals around from water supply and movement into Yuma. There were 5 or 6 other campers but we were all about .5 miles apart us... more

“Nice Lake in the Desert”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2017

Overall Rating

Boondocked at Mittry Lake for eight nights in January. We took the advice of other reviewers and camped on the small rise instead of in one of the roadside lake spots. On the hill your neighbors are closer, but the traffic is non-existant. If you continue on the main road, past the dock, there are a handful of very private campsites (n... more

“Semi peaceful off-road spot”

Reviewed Jan 30, 2017

Overall Rating

The lake has a good feel, quite natural, marsh bird habitat but man made palm peninsulas for fishing. The fact that you are basically on a gravel road diminishes this site a little. Sunset and sunrise were both worth the visit. The road although washboard is not awful if you take it easy. The intermittent moments of peace make the odd ... more
