“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

“Beautiful spot by the lake”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

Overall Rating

Mittry Lake is about 2 miles of washboard gravel road away from paved roads. Taking it slow, we had no problem with our 38' 5th wheel. There are many spots on can choose from -- several right along the lake with fishing jettys and palm trees. Sites before the boat launch area provide best access to the water, but all traffic going to... more

“Scenic and convenient to Yuma.”

Reviewed Jul 08, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here two years in a row during February, but unlike the other reviewers we took a right turn off the main road and camped up on a hill about a half mile before the boat launch area. It's very popular but has great views of the lake and you don't get all the dust from traffic going by on the main road. There were some mosquito... more

“Scenic but dusty.”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2015

Overall Rating

Mittry Lake was a bit of a surprise. We expected just a bland reservoir but the lake is really quite lovely. It is quite a trek out of Yuma and we chose to drive further around the lake to get to some solitude. The lake is quite busy with OHV's and duck hunters. We scored a beautiful spot that was higher up than some of the mor... more
