We decided to went to Al Qudra Lake for barbecue. If you are going there for the same purpose, I would recommend to come before 1pm when there are a lot of available spots. After 2Pm it is getting very busy. We found an amazing spot, next to the lake and under the trees. Some of the lakes are the home of birds and if you like watching birds you definitely will love the place.
There is no washroom in a walking distance, so you have to plan it in advance. You must bring grill with you, because it is not allowed to do fire on the sand directly.

It’s an Awesome place but a long drive from Sharjah. Although the drive is boring but it’s worth a visit. This is my second visit with the family. Recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle as the roads are not paved and quite bumpy.
It’s quite hot during the day. We seen some Gazelles which were added to the lake came across quite a few of them. Recommend nature lovers to visit it

Located near the Dubai city, the Al Qudra lakes is a nice spot for picnics and barbeques. The lakes are tranquil and the birds add a touch of nature to it. Though man-made, the lakes don't scream "artificial".

Make sure to carry enough food and water and you could easily spend a couple of hours there. If you don't have your own supplies, then the place has very little to offer and the Last Exit nearby does not have many options either.

A large number of vehicles drive around the lakes and many of them are highly inconsiderate and rake up a lot of dust intentionally. Some of them seem to race around as well which is stupid and dangerous to everyone.

If you are with kids, make sure you stay well out of the drive path and keep a close watch on the kids.

Other than that, its an enjoyable visit. Probably best visited in the evening.

If you are following Google Maps, look for Al Qudra 1 or Love Lake. Any other search would lead you to inaccessible places.

If you are looking for a family day or friends bbq, it is the perfect place. You got to have a perfect lake view where you can enjoy a cup of karak tea freshly made on stop. I would advice to pack the picnic matters to enjoy a full day. Bbq will be amazing too. Before start camping or resting, it would be amazing to go for a lake horse ridding a one hr trip with a friendly guide form “ Al Jiad Stable”. After with ur car you can just follow the signs for one of the most beautiful sightseeing spots in dxb.

We had an excellent trip to Al qudra lakes. It was so pleasant and beautiful with lots of birds around at different locations. The lakes itself was beautiful with trees, reeds and wild grass edging it. A natural beauty. Clicked great pictures.

The Al Qudra lakes are a great place. The wildlife is a welcome change for Dubai. Herons, geese, ducks, swans, flamingos etc.
Its great for a walk in the winter, or a drive in the summer.
Unfortunately, the management has had to restrict BBQ's an dogs, due to the not inconsiderable minority that think it's OK to through all their trash out the car window, or in the lake.
We've seen people of multiple nationalities treat Al Qudra lakes like a garbage dump - brazenly, without thought.
There are plenty of Municipality cleaners around - bu there shouldn't need to be.
I prefer it in the summer, when it's quiet. it's hot, but at least the hordes aren't there...

Beautiful, relaxing haven but a bit stressful rough road drive. Becomes pitch black after sunset as no street lights. The concept of being able to park your car next to the pristine lake and set up a picnic ground is simply a gift. Will be back.

Worth a visit for the sheer variety of birds that inhabit this place. Best visited at sunset to capture the idyllic glow of the sky against the lake. Watch towers provide a good vantage point for photographs

Well this is my favorite place to chill with family and friends during winter yes in uae there is winter and it nice place to watch nature of desert along with doing barbeque and shisha along with enjoying the greats experience of camping. You need to try it as no matter how much the explain still when you see it with your owner eyes will be different.

And specially for the photographer who like to take an amazing pictures and one of them my best friend.

Try it and tell me how it is by the way you have bathroom near by that area in 2 locations one at the last exist and one at love lake.

Awesome place for a fun BBQ evening out of the busy city with friends. Camping I very possible as I saw lots of tents around, the swans also make the lakes beautiful. Make sure you get enough supplies at the last exit as there's no nearby shopping place incase you run out supplies
