Bonita Mesa RV Resort

Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay:

This is primarily a 55+ RV Park with a few permanent residents and lots of snowbirds from November to March. The Park has large fig trees which provide shade for many sites and curved roads so it doesn't seem as regimented as other resorts. It's an older resort which is reflected in the rates which we believe are very reasonable when booking for 3, 6 or even 12 months as many do. There is a pool, hot tub, exercise room, card room, library etc. and a great social committee which organizes entertainment several times a week in the season including live groups and resident organized functions e.g. Can-Am which is a Canadian versus U.S. games day. Water and electric is metered but reading water meters is often more expensive than the water usage (often less than $3/month! Wi-Fi is OK until the Park gets full, I get Time Warner to hard-wire my connection for the time I am here. Next to the resort is open scrub desert ideal for walking dogs off leash, and the north end of the park is a fenced dog run about 250 yards long. People may be clique-ish because they have been coming here for years but they are very open and welcoming to new people who show an interest in the park and the activities.

This is a delightful little RV Park, a lot of work has clearly been put in to clearing the banks of the creek that runs through the Park and generally sprucing the Park up. We only stayed one night on our way south but will likely come back as the Park is very close to superb fishing in Poindexter Slough and the Beaverhead River both of which I have fished on other visits (not staying in the RV on those occasions).

We were delighted with this resort. It is conveniently close to Mt. Rushmore and the scenic drives around the Black Hills. Check in was friendly and casual; we were assigned a long back-in site, ideal for our 39ft 5th wheel and truck with room to spare. There was good separation from the next site and shade from tall pines behind. Satellite TV was a little tricky to set up but successful in the end. This is a large park with lots of grassland, tenting areas under the trees, pull-through sites, it does have an open parkland feel about it. Our dogs enjoyed the dog run and the "nature walk" at the edge of the property where we saw deer on several occasions. Families staying at the same time seemed to have great fun at the playground and pool. We are members of an affiliated membership RV group so the price per night is a best guess.
