Stayed here 2 nites with PA discount. Old Old campground- not well kept up- looks like lots of seasonal snow birds and a few permanents. Parked us beside an old rundown motorhome with garbage everywhere around it- there were other spots available. Was quiet, appeared safe and worth the PA discount- but will look for other arrangements next time. - openrange

This is a dump. Wish I could give it 0 rating. The restroom was so rundown that the sink cabinet was falling apart and the showers were too dirty to use. I have seen outhouses in better shape. The grounds are poorly kept. This is Passport America rate. - normdave

People were friendly enough. Older RV sites, seemed like a lot of full-timers. Gravel sites & roads. Never found the cable hook-up. Even though the electrical box had 50amp plug, only 30amp worked. Every time the train went by (lots of noise) it messed-up the TV signal. We checked in at dark and had 6 trains in the first two hours ( at the time of this post). Would have been more peaceful at Walmart if AZ allowed it. - CurlyOnTheRoad

Very old park, we had a pull thru across the city street from the rest of the park, I think that is where the overniters stay: tight, long pull thru. Bathrooms are very old and funky and the shower costs a dollar. The manager is quite friendly. Worth the money. No internet or TV but we were able to receive a few channels on our antenna. - saturn7

This park is easy access off the I-8 and it looks very welcoming from the freeway with palm trees visible from the distance. The parts of this park that house longer term residents looks very nice. The residents and hosts were very friendly. However, we apparently got the last two open pull throughs "up the hill" in an open gravel field. It appears they are trying to cram as many rigs into the space as possible. It was very crowded. I bit pricey for what this place had to offer. In hind-site, we should have continued on to Yuma and found something nicer for about the same price. It was an extremely narrow, tight spot to park in, that is it. No picnic table, fire ring and a very eclectic crowd. We wouldn't stay here again. - Nautical Wheelers

Friendly staff but the sites were so close I literally had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to hook up my sewer hose. The laundry was clean and adequate. I only stayed one night and wouldn't want to stay any longer. - mockturtle

We stayed here for one night while traveling through Arizona. The RV park was a very convenient on and off from I-8, so it met our purposes perfectly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were provided with a level, pull-thru site which made it very easy to set up and break down quickly. The site, and all of the area around the site, was gravel. I wouldn't want to stay long-term in a site like that, but for an overnight stay, it was acceptable. We would definitely stay here again, for a night or two, if we were traveling through the area. - Byron Bailey

This is a park with mostly snow birds and park models with full hook ups. There are just a few short term RV spots at the East end of the park with water and electricity only. What Wi-Fi they have is very weak or spotty. There are pea gravel roads that are level and dusty in the short term area. Then only TV is with a dish. No radio that we could find either. The people are very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms, showers and laundry rooms are very nice and clean. - MJHP*28

This is a long-term snowbird park, not an overnight stop. For $28 (cash only) you get a spot in a gravel parking lot on the periphery of the park with water and electric only - no sewer hookup, table, trees; just dust and train noise. Our bad, we should have done more research; don't make our mistake, avoid this park if traveling, there are better, less expensive parks around. We'll avoid this park in the future. - Meanderman

This is a 55 plus park consisting of snowbirds who have been coming here for years. It is getting to be predominately park models which the new owners are encouraging, but overall, it offers many activities and if you make an effort to become involved, you will enjoy it. The Wi-Fi system is free and even free, it's not worth it: terrible! The trains coming through town can't be ignored at first, but eventually, you don't hear them. The smell of the livestock feed two miles away, however, is a different matter. When the wind is blowing a certain way: get a clothes pin for your nose! The spaces are ample; wider than some other parks we've been to. There's not much in the town of Wellton in the way of shopping, but Yuma is only 20 miles or so away. The town library is surprisingly great! State of the art for such a small town and also has computers available. For the price, this is a good park. - johnandjogo

Only stayed here for one night. The campground is far enough off the interstate that noise is negligible. Most sites are back-in with plenty of room.
It is a very large campgrould but was less then half full. Most of the campers were snow birds. - jnateg

This campground has wide paved roads with gravel sites. The short term sites do not have a concrete patio, just the long term people do. Plenty of room between sites. Your vehicle is parked on side of your rv. Very quiet friendly place. You can hear the interstate and trains at night but that was of no issue to us. Very nice clubhouse with clean washers & dryers. A lot of people here with four wheelers for going into the dessert. They have wifi but only in the clubhouse. This is a 55 and plus park. We only stayed two nights but would definately stay here again. AT&T cell phone and verizon wifi worked good. - jhav

We stayed at and reviewed this park the last time we passed thru this area and said we'd stay again and we have. Not a lot of changes since our last stay that we noticed but we don't normally use many of the facilities available at the various parks so all I can do is base this review on what we saw this last stay and that was all very good. As before the hosts were friendly and helpful, our site was easy to back into and hookups were pretty much standard and in the right area to get to, etc. This is a park located about a half mile off of Interstate 8 about 40 or so miles east of Yuma and there is nothing out there but desert and cactus. But if you like a good night's sleep in a peaceful surrounding with the sky above ablaze with thousands of stars, then you will love this park. And at the rate they charge you cannot go wrong for a night's stay such at that. Clean, well maintained and with a nice clubhouse and facilities (we did check all this out of course even tho we didn't use them) we will most certainly continue to make this one of our overnight stops along the I-8 corridor when we travel that route. Oh, and it is easy access on and off the interstate and there are signs to follow, etc. It ain't fancy but it sure is nice.................. - BankShot

Beautiful HUGE park with many park models. Nice big heated pool and spa. Beautiful city type roads with nice landscaping. Paved pad at site with pea gravel for parking area. Two nice dog parks. One very large. Good, reasonably priced restaurant. Inexpensive Happy Hour at pool. Nine hole golf course. - Hics

This is an Adult Only park. Pet friendly (w/restrictions) w/ a huge dog run. There are multiple tennis, pickle ball, horse shoe, and other courts that are all available 24 hrs. day.
This park is in 2 sections old & new. The Old section is mainly small cabins (a lot are for sale) and a few RV's. New is all new RV camping with full hook-ups at every space.
Spaces are very large with tons of room for slide outs (on both sides) and room for your dink too. Power is 20/30/50amp services, fresh water, sewer and cable hookup (not many channels). Your digital antennae will pick a dozen or more channels. Satellite works well here too (no trees to block a signal).
There is a huge clubhouse with full facilities, a pool-side bar that is open daily with entertainment in the afternoons (happy hour) drinks are $2. The pool is huge and the Jacuzzi next to the pool. Lots of chairs lounge cabanas tables and chairs without being cramped.
This is a big "snowbird" hang out and lots of rallies are held here too. But there are always extra spaces.
New internal roads, new spaces. Very friendly staff and helpful. We were at this park for 2 weeks. No problems at all. - User2967

I like this park; I definitely like the area. The park is what I call a Howdy Doody friendly, not a parade route friendly which is good; that way your arm doesn't fall off by the time you get to your campsite. When we get here usually in the end of February it is thinning out pretty good so by the first week of March you are probably at least 50% down and very vacant looking across the RV park. Still a lot to do, enough people to keep the pickle ball going the tennis going you have plenty a room at the pool all the activities pretty much are still in operation at this time with about half of the people here so it really makes for a nice experience. We got a spot which I preferred; the front of my motorhome facing north due to the fact we didn't have sun hitting us in the front or sides all day, personal preference. The water here is very hard as it has a lot of calcium deposits; make sure you are filtered, water spots are common and you need to wipe things off when they get wet. Not too long of a drive back to town if need be; shopping is very convenient up in the foothills so we're definitely going to stay here again. The office is manned by personnel where most of them do not live in the park so sometimes particular needs have to be more explained even though they should be familiar with it. Our fees that we paid here were two weeks on a good Sam and one week was free due to the fact we stayed a month at the Good Life in Mesa. I would definitely stay here a month next year and overall I like this park better than the one in Mesa; not so much the park, but the surrounding areas. You don't feel like you're in the big city at this park and still have everything else to go with it. - monaco cruiser

This is a good news, bad news review. We have stayed in Sundance for months at a time, in the past, but only stayed two weeks this year. The back half of the park is filled with park models and is a winter village. The front half is more transient, and noisier. In the past we would have given the park a 10. Now there are two things you need to know. They advertise Wi-Fi but in the two weeks we were there, we were not ever able to connect to the Internet. We depend on the Internet a lot and this meant special trips to free zones like the library south of I-8 and Starbucks two miles west. If you need the Internet, be sure it is working before you plunk your money down. It was a major irritation. Secondly, Sundance's short term prices are way up from a while ago. Two weeks was over $500 and was roughly the same as a month's stay. (The yearly price still seems reasonable.) For these two reasons, we will look for alternatives the next time we are in Yuma. - Hameisters

Not sure where to begin this one. When we arrived we were going to stay three months (Winter). The office staff was nice until the Managers Husband took us to our site. It was very small and there was only 30 amp service. They found us another site that was a little bigger but still no 50 amp. The managers husband was very rude and told us if this didn't work we were out of luck. We really wanted to stay here because our friends were here. We were able to get in to the site (Barely). As soon as we hooked up our electric everything began smoking! Our new flat screen TV, Our inverter and my desk top all fried. When we told the office what had happened I over heard the one lady in the office say through a window, "Oh no, it has happened again"! We were so upset. They sent a maintenance man out along with the Managers husband. Upon inspection they said there was nothing wrong. Our neighbor was there and spotted a problem. He told the young man to look at the ground line. Sure enough the parks system was not grounded properly.The managers husband asked why we did not have electrical protection, we do but not for a 30 amp plug. What a nightmare. We also discovered this happened to a person two days prior to our issues. They need to fix the electrical before they put a RV in the site. We are from Canada and I will post this on every site I can find. By the way we are still waiting for them to make a decision if our damaged items will be paid for. Our insurance co. will take care of it. We left that park and found a much nicer place to stay. I highly recommend that if you are snow birding avoid this place like the flu! Also, the managers husband should never come in contact with any guests. He is rude and has no right to speak to people as he did to us! - sidbartello

Needed a quick overnight stop and this park fit the bill nicely. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites are a bit tight and with (it seems) much of Yuma, significant number of long term residents. The dog walk area gets a 9 (not fenced so no 10), open to a huge dry wash. Just off I-8, some traffic noise but not an issue. Be aware they take only cash or checks - seemed a bit odd in this day and age. - Dogs and Cats

As others have noted this one is right next to the Interstate and Frontage Road and there is constant road noise. The spaces are pretty tight and getting out 36' motorhome between the concrete pad and the hookup box required care. The camp host will bring you to your spot but cannot help with backing into the space. I can't imagine why this is called a "Resort" and charging a $3 a day resort fee is a blatant rip off. Tight spaces, a small pool and spa and 3 shuffleboards isn't resort living in my opinion.
The laundry requires purchase of a card.
We are Thousand Trails members but the discount isn't much, seems like you might get a better deal using Passport America.
Won't be staying here again unless we are meeting up with friends like we are this trip. - Brian n Barbara

The park was adequate for a short stay. Not enough amenities for a long season stay. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Sites were level. Park facilities need to be updated. Close to Interstate 8 so noisy at night. We would stay here again for a short stay. Sewer connection was 30 feet from the coach connection, bring a long sewer hose. - Whale13

Passport America rate. Very nice campground, but if you get a site out front like we did, extremely noisy. I-8 is only a few feet in front of you with no walls or anything to block the noise. - Denn0007

Cactus Blossom RV Retreat is a new, very small park, in the Foothills section of Yuma. The park is in a residential area, and it is a place to hook up your RV and live, but it isn't an RV "resort". The park owner/manager is an experienced RVer, and he is setting up the park with the things he would like to have - so the sites are spacious and level, and most sites have a storage building that you have access to while you stay. He only offers weekly and monthly rates; the price shown is based on the weekly rate and electricity must be paid on top of that rate. The park owner has great pride of ownership and it shows in what he has provided.
If you are looking for a spot to park your rig in a quiet neighborhood at an economical price, not an RV resort with lots of activities, Cactus Blossom RV Retreat might be the place for you. - pattic777
