We saw the ad for this park in the Trailer Life book and it was marked as Best Rate. We called to say we were coming. This was Saturday Jan 19th. Arrived about 5-5:30PM. Paid a weekly rate as the space was reserved beginning Jan 25th and no other was available. We planned on staying in Yuma until mid-Feb. We said we would find something else in the meantime. Office closed 6 PM and is closed on Sundays. Got set up into the space and later in the evening as I was walking our dog, the electricity went out. While I was out I met some neighbors out walking with flashlights and they mentioned the electricity had gone out 4 times the night before. Came back into our motorhome and set up the laptop to use with our Verizon wireless. No connection. At the same time I discovered our cell phones did not have any connection. We cannot be without communication. A neighbor mentioned when they used their cell phone they got a Spanish operator and roaming charge. Obviously this park is very near the border. Went on to church the next morning and on the way back we found another place to stay. Got back and loaded up to move to another park and left a note in the suggestion box of what happened and requested a refund. The next day, Monday, went back out there again (9 miles off the main road and quite a distance from center of Yuma). Got there at 1:05 only to discover that lunch hour was 1-2PM and office was closed. Wrote out another note requesting they call us. The lady called to explain the boss, would be out of town until Friday and he would have to make the decision. We returned again on Saturday, the 26th, and was told the boss was busy and they would have to find him to get an answer. We left again. On our way back to Yuma, they called to say we would not get a refund as we had left on our own. Not sure what that means exactly but I reiterated the total situation again and he said he would have the boss call us directly. This is one week later and still nothing from them. I believe we have been very patient. We would not recommend this place to anyone to stay, unless you don't need communication and don't mind challenges with water and electricity. Spaces are nice size. Our cell phones did not get a signal until we got near MCAS which is quite a distance back toward town. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very spacious and lovely park but costly. With no connections for wireless network or cable TV unless you have your own, the cost is pretty high. As we travelled, we found some parks are now allowing 6 months and then you must move. We have learned to ask questions before we reserve as well as go to a park first, check out the site and be sure everything works before committing to a longer stay than one night. The ads are not always true. There were 3 staff members and two were not knowledgeable of the area at all nor were able to answer much of anything. No mail can be sent to you at the park. You must receive as General Delivery at Yorba Linda post office. UPS and Fed Ex do deliver however. Workers kept the park very tidy. We camped at Canyon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Most beautiful park with pull through on the river. Even the dump station was decorated with a flower bed. The office also has a small museum to enjoy. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.
