The Palms RV Resort

Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay:

Price reflects one week at peak season and part of one off season. No discounts offered. We arrived late in March and were a little disappointed to see less attention to landscape along walking trails as in the past ... reduction in rocks, weeds, strewn with dead leaves, etc. Dog areas not well groomed as in the past. Lots of weeds in the gravel of some of the sites were something of an eyesore. Overflowing trash bins on Sunday afternoon. Beautiful homes and lots for sale appeared to be very overpriced. Our site had electrical pedestals at the front of the site which made parking our toad extremely tight. Still a lovely resort, but something of a disappointment for past visitors. We will return.

Date of Stay:

We reserved for a one month stay and paid by phone what we were told would be the price plus electric. Upon our arrival, for some reason they parked us between two vacant park models in a spot that was somewhat difficult to navigate, as well as the most inconvenient sewer placement others have described. We had to call the rover back to help us locate our water -- which was actually behind the park model on the other side, requiring lots of hose. Staff was less than friendly, and no one offered to show us around this huge resort. Since we arrived on the weekend, we were shocked to learn upon check-in that we actually owed another almost $300 additional for trash, electric deposit, sewer, water, and $30 each for two dogs. Dog areas smelled and both of our dogs got diarrhea causing us to incur vet bills on top of the steep dog fee. Fireworks are apparently legal in Mesa, and the neighborhood behind us was most disrespectful the days leading up to New Years. Our 8-1/2 year-old dog had never feared fireworks until now. Prior to the end of our month, we inquired about staying on until the date when we had another commitment. We were advised that we would have to leave three or four days prior to that since someone else had reserved our exact site although there were dozens of empty RV sites at the time. Given that we did not extend for a full month, it seems unfair that we were charged a daily rate but they failed to read the electric and water and trash at the end of our paid month, so we were charged additional. No weekend office hours created a huge problem for us upon departure since we wanted to know our electric costs, and learned that a packaged that had been delivered on Friday would not fit into our mailbox and we were unable to access it, and by Monday we would be over an hour away without a good forwarding address for a couple of weeks. There are some nice features in the park but, given the manner in which we were treated, we will not return.

Price reflects Value Kard discount for a 'deluxe' pull thru. Sites included a picnic table but were narrow with some tree branches interfering with navigation. Water was green when we turned it on so we drank only bottled water (even the dogs) and used bagged ice. Rain water puddled badly along the gravel interior roads and ditches. Nuts fallen from the trees made something of a mess right outside our doorstep. Much of the staff was less than friendly. Fabulous dog run, if only guests would utilize the campground provided bags and disposal location to pick up after their dogs. Garmin and Rand McNally gps systems fail to recognize that Hero Way now connects with Highway 183A. Convenient to shopping. We would stay again.

Price reflects Value Kard discount for a full hookup pull-through site. Check-in staff was very friendly. Roads are paved and sites are gravel with picnic tables and fire rings. We had a lovely view of the lake and water park next door. Rained hard twice and park tended to be a little on the swampy side. Nice swimming beach with lots of chairs. Glad to see some newer parks being built! Tight right turn onto Hess from Shaulis Rd. Signage is not the best along the route. Trees are young and offer little shade, but looks like this will be a nice park. Will definitely return.

Price reflects discount for full hookup pull-through without functioning water. Gravel with nice grass and concrete patio with picnic table. Park has some low branches and tight turns for big rigs and very strict pet policies. Office staff was very pleasant. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects Good Sam discount for a 50 amp full hookup back-in site. Park has gravel roads and grass sites and is convenient to shopping, restaurants and the interstate. Good Verizon signal and satellite friendly. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects Value Kard discount with tax. Roads and sites were gravel. We encountered low branches upon entering, and our premium pull thru was not satellite friendly as requested. They permitted us to move to a second site, which was satisfactory. Staff was somewhat cordial, but obviously not going out of their way to be friendly. They were unable to print our receipt due to a lightning strike, but did not manage to get one to us prior to our departure. WiFi was mostly up and down and elusive, so we used our Verizon MiFi. Would stay again in a pinch.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects Good Sam membership. We paid for 6 nights and received the 7th night free in a lake view pull thru FHU site. Gravel roads, sites and turns are very narrow but managed okay in our 43' class A. Trees and/or neighbor prohibited use of our awning. Delightful walking/biking trail across the highway along Lake Michigan. Verizon cellular was weak and calls dropped but our MiFi seemed to work fairly well. Fire ring and picnic table were located a bit close to the rig. They promptly lopped off some low tree limbs so that we could get out our slides. This was our second stay and we would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Park is convenient to restaurants and shopping. Front desk was not real attentive to first timers' needs and questions. We were unable to access satellite reception for the trees. Many tight turns and little space for hitch up. We backed out of our pull thru site due to a tree badly placed. We would return in a pinch.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects weekly rate. We stayed during the Renaissance Festival and were required to use the back entrance for a few days. Camp hosts are very cordial. There is some train noise and lots of prairie dog activity. A little pricey for what you get and an increase from last year, but would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects weekday discount. We were advised park will close permanently after this season. We had a shaded premium site with a small deck but were unable to get satellite reception. WiFi worked very well. Dog walk was a distance on gravel. Owners were extremely helpful and hands on. Fairly easy access to freeway and shopping. Website advises that gps coordinates should be used. Water pressure was low much of the time.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects senior rate for a fhu back in gravel site. County park is gated with a security code. Sites are spacious and the setting is serene although the park is located well within the city. A few sites have lake views and many are not very level. Roof top satellite reception can be a problem with some sites. Verizon works well. Restaurants and shopping are available within a few miles. Late check outs until 3 pm so you won't want to arrive too early. Stay is limited to 14 days. We will stay again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects FMCA discount. Beautiful park south of the Twin Cities is a distance from major highways, shopping and restaurants. There is an RV and car wash, storm shelter and fuel available on premises, and shuttle buses for the casino and recreational facility. Pull thru sites are extremely close to neighbor on one side and grass area is shared with neighbor on the other. We will stay again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects rally rate. Nice park is located convenient to attractions, shopping and restaurants. Ample shade did not interfere with satellite reception. Good Verizon signal. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Select a site and either call for a ride or walk to the casino to pay. Buffet prices have skyrocketed since our last stay. Roads are in very bad repair and narrow. Saw one site that had been widened and cement replaced with gravel. Goose poop is everywhere! Grass was tall and puddles/mud made it very difficult to walk the dogs. Could really be a nice campground if they maintained it. Would stay again in a pinch.
