Lake Martinez is located just 45 minutes North of the Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma
, and about one hour drive from the California-Arizona border at Yuma. Take highway 95 north of Yuma
for approximately 22 miles. Turn left onto Martinez Lake Road, go 10 miles and follow the sign.
Lake Martinez has something for everyone. For the fisherman, there are hundreds of miles of shoreline on lakes and channels within a short distance of the lake, serving as home to Bigmouth Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, Tilapia and Striped Bass. Other activities include boating, water skiing, hunting, climbing, trailing, photographing, and sight-seeing.
A by-product from the construction of the Imperial Dam built under the 1930s Boulder Act, Martinez Lake encompasses several thousand acres of water and marshy shoreline rich with wildlife and vegetation. The 13-acre property of the resort area is in a prime location on the Northern banks of the lake.
