Martinez Lake

Martinez Lake is located just north of Yuma on the Colorado River. Known for the many species of wildlife that populate the lake year-round, this area is a relaxing retreat perfect for a weekend getaway.

The lake is surrounded by the Imperial Wildlife Refuge, making it a prime destination for bird watchers and nature enthusiasts. Waterfront homes, cottages and RV spaces are also available for rent.

The water is abundant with fish ranging from bass to catfish to tilapia, making Martinez Lake a fisherman’s retreat. For those less experienced at outdoor adventure, there are also guides who specialize in fishing, bird watching and navigating the river.

Several types of boats are available for rent for those who wish to explore on their own, as well as a fun restaurant and cantina featuring dancing Saturday nights and live music on Sunday afternoons – the perfect place to end a day on the lake.
