Our rate is 1/2 price. This is a nice campground for the lake and some fun hiking or gravel bike riding. The campground itself seems like it was once just a parking lot and then someone decided to make it a pay camping spot. We got lucky and were not near anyone using a generator. It was easy access for the kayak to the lake/river. There were some day use people bringing their boats, but the water seemed quite low, so not too many. At the end of the upper parking lot there is a trail that goes behind the hills and there are quite a few trails back there to explore. Showers/bathrooms were clean. Showers are pay - $1 for 7 minutes. ATT was nonexistent until we were packing to go, then we had 3 bars of LTE. Go figure. We camped at Squaw Lake BLM in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects a 50% Senior Pass discount. You can also purchase an annual permit for $75, then it is free to stay for up to two weeks, then you have to leave for two weeks before you return. This pass is also good for free camping at other BLM recreation sites but not at the long-term stay sites. It is a bit complicated. You will probably want to ask the camp hosts for more information if you are interested in this option. The campground is basically two large parking lots. There is the lake, but only a dozen or so sites will have any view of the lake. The sites are parking spaces. You are allowed to take up two spaces so that you have a "patio" for your awning and for setting outside,but this was not strictly enforced. So you are going to be very close to your neighbor. The boat ramp is just across the way so you may also have noise from that. The roads to the campground are all good and paved. All of the interior roads and sites are also paved. There is no water or dump station at the campground but is available at South Mesa about a mile away. There are restrooms and showers and a gray water dump station. Generator hours are from six in the morning until ten at night, so you may find yourself camping next to someone running a generator for long periods of time. It was very quiet at night, but, unfortunately there are bright lights on the restrooms and at the boat ramp that cause it to be very bright. It is right next to the Yuma Proving Ground and there is some noise of distant explosions, but not bad. It is a good place to stay for visiting the area for a few days, but we would not want to stay longer than a few days. The camp hosts are extremely nice and helpful. We had a very strong Verizon voice and 4G data. Satellite was not a problem since there are no trees. We camped at Squaw Lake BLM in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park popular with kayakers and fishermen. No-wake regulations on the lake. Three launches. The RV sites are literally a two-tiered parking lot but one RV is allowed two spaces. No dump but you are allowed to use the one at South Mesa just down the road. The hosts were positively the nicest I've ever met anywhere! Stayed my allowed two weeks but plan to return next year. We camped at Squaw Lake BLM in a Motorhome.
