We decided to go out to the Imperial Dam long term boondooking area. This is the view on our way.
This is a patch of something being grown and the beautiful view of the mountain range.
Watering the plants.
The mountains close up with the sun almost up.
Castle Dome rock
Castle Dome on the left and the rest of the range.
We have found the turn off of route 95 north of Yuma, AZ
Entrance to the Proving Grounds and the road to the Imperial Dam.
What a fantastic view.
US Army proving grounds.
Here's our sign.
|View from the hill side at the sites by the lake.|
Dumping station sign and directions.
Class C using the dumping station and water fill up.
Need to have a place to dump your trash?
Rates, not to bad a price.
Camp Host site and bathrooms, no showers but toilets.
This is the picnic area, there are no tables on the plateau.
These folks have thought of everything, even a Library spelled Liberry.
They are ready for the season, solar, covered chairs and satellite dish.
Another example of solar in use.
The ocotillo plans are in bloom and the different size of solar panels.
People park where ever there is space and in the direction they desire.
The open area that is available for camping.
Some have solar and some do not, but look at the view.
Friendly burros visit regularly.
Another view of the lake side camping. It was a very windy day and there were white caps on the lake.
Camping on the ridge overlooking the lake. What a beautiful site.
Emergency services are available and they take care of each other out here.
Almost everything you could need is close by.
Even church services.
The area is noted for the date farms and this is what they look like. One of the things that is a must have here is a date shake. I think it must be an acquired taste.
