Cibola Refuge, 30 miles past (east) Glamis on the I-78. Free and pay camping. Tweakers in the free camping sometimes....
Hidden Shores campground at Imperial Dam, 20 minutes north of Yuma on the CO river. The management there are fucking nazi's though.

Lake Cuyumaca. RV and camping sites right by the water. Doggie friendly provided it doesn't get in the water.

I hope we see some more the old motorhome could come out of storage.
I can't catch a thing in freshwater but couple cigars, campfire, boat in fresh water sounds good.

Remember, if fishing from the California shore, a Colorado river stamp is not needed. Only from a boat.

Casitas. Very cool. You can also camp at Irvine Lake.

John, if you have the river stamp you can fish on either side of the river and all back waters on BOTH sides. No non resident fishing license required.....as long as you have the stamp.
Wish they had that deal to hunt both sides. I have to have both hunting licenses and stamps (state) to duck hunt.
Fucking Squaw doubled their launch fee to 10 bucks. Hidden shores still charges 4 bucks.

You could be wrong about the letter of the law on the CR stamp, Mike. Here is the quote from dfg
I will look into it further. BTW, I routinely fish from both shores, but with my boat beached on a sand bar or bank.
"Colorado River Stamp
Allows an angler to fish from a boat or other floating device on the Colorado River or adjacent waters forming the California-Arizona border."
Of course, I hope you are correct.

I got my info from the Ca. Warden a couple weeks ago. He was with the Az. fish and game guy. That's good enough for me.
I told them that they should have a "stamp" so I can hunt both side of the river without buying an Az. fishing license....yeah right.
You don't need the stamp if you want to fish the canals on the ca. side. Lots of big cats and stripers in the canals, fish the bridges.
They've redone the ramp at hidden shores. Too many rules there now for me. If you go down during the summer holiday(s) expect it to nuts EVERYWHERE.
