Staff were nice but we were too busy to take advantage of any amenities. The trains were blessedly quiet at this location, just a rumble in the distance rather than whistles at all hours. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

If you don't mind train whistles all day and night and making sure your dog doesn't do its business on the wrong side of the dog run which is outside of the park by the way, then you won't mind this place. The staff is very nice but it doesn't make up for the issues mentioned above. I would never stay here again !!! We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Rate reflects PPA. This is part of the Encore group and they do a wonderful job. We've stayed in Encore parks in FL and this was one of the best. It is predominately for snowbirds, with many park models, but they do keep some sites for transients. It was before most had returned for the winter and was very quiet. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and we never saw more than one other person in. Residents were very friendly and helpful; needed to do some fix-up and found a gentlemen who helped and used his extensive tool collection to make sure I got the job done right. Front desk was marvelous. Only problem is the front is closed on weekends. This became an issue on Sunday when we went to do laundry, inserted money to purchase debit card for machines, and it took the money but did not give a card. I called the general manager listed on the office door and she came within 10 minutes, got me a card and made sure I knew how to load money on it. Some of previously commented on narrow spaces; we did not experience that, even when a large rig pulled in next to us and put out slides. Would I have liked more room? Of course. But it's an RV park in a highly competitive area where each space represents income. It was not over crowded or confining. Biggest issue is the proximity to train tracks...these are very active tracks with frequent trains both day AND night and the required train whistles/horns. It can be jarring. This is the ONLY reason I gave them a 9; and it is not the fault of the park. Road noise is minimal, there is a Flying J only 2 miles away and plenty of RV repair facilities and shops close by. We would definitely come here again. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice park, but no one is in the office on a Saturday afternoon, so make sure you know where to go ahead of time. We had a slight problem with our electric, and after I called them, they moved us pretty quickly as it was 109 outside. Only stayed one night. Would probably go back.

An older park, very many permanent residents. Staff could not have been friendlier or nicer. They gave us a site that had exactly what we needed. A little noise from the air base, but no freeway or train noise. We were here for dental work at Los Algodones; the park is convenient for that. A fine overnight park! Rate is Good Sam discount.

Clean and quiet, but very spooky because park is all snowbirds with about 5 overnight spots. Like a ghost town. Hosts were friendly, though, and pool was open. Please be advised that parks in this area lock their restrooms at night. All concrete and gravel. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Tent Trailer.Undo

This park is close to Wal-Mart with lots of activities to keep you busy, but most folks come here year after year and do take ownership, but are very friendly folks. The only major reason I marked this park so low is they pack you in like sardines. Our mirrors on our motorhome are 3 inches from a tree and the ladies fence on the other side is touching our slide out (she had to pull it back for us to slide it out !!! It took over 20 minutes of maneuvering to get the motorhome in and we have only one slide. The outside lots aren't so bad. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed for a month hoping the management would be better than the previous winter. If anything it was worse. The manager and staff were rude and not interested if you weren't one of the prefered 'long term' people. The office staff told us our checkout day. When we checked out on that day, the manager charged us for an extra day. The staff hadn't told us the right day! The pool was lovely: it was the only thing that drew us back. Never again. The trains were awful and the traffic equally so. There were lots of noisy party people. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Typical 'big box' corporate-owned RV park, lined up parking lot style. In January, I bought a travel trailer from a resident in the park, including space rent through October. Desert Paradise RV, and the adjacent Cactus Gardens, both Encore Properties, recently began requiring 'background checks', but just for long term residents (6 months), not transient or seasonal rentals, which doesn't seem right. Apparently, I was suppose to fill this out before I even bought the trailer (I was still in Oregon), and the owners were supposed to get prior approval and inspection before they could advertise or sell their own property. Even though the office is demanding I make a decision about how long I plan to stay and pay them $50 to complete this "credit check", I plan to speak to an atty first, before I hand over any personal and financial info without any liability for privacy or security. Not on a prepaid site! Good points: both the park and people are nice, clean, friendly, surrounded by nice dog walks. The pool and spa are heavenly, lots of events, fwy noise is distant, but military aircraft are obnoxious at times, and the trains! Ugh! Relentless in my opinion! Many Canadians and snowbirds leave by March, and it gets a little more peaceful. I'm content for now, but will seek a smaller, locally-owned property, where you're treated like a neighbor, not a number. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Rate quoted Passport America. Campground host escorts you to site. Sites have hookups at the back which required an extension cord for electrical. Our concrete pad had a palm tree in front of it which required more attention backing into campsite. WIFI is Tengo a fee for service ISP. Cable TV service has only about 20 channels. The trains could be heard throughout the day and night. Did not hear any freeway traffic. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Packed with friendly seasonals and retirees. We got the last two spaces at the edge of this neat clean "village". We enjoyed an inexpensive breakfast with the "natives" in the community hall. And, got a lot of friendly "You're a long way from home" comments when the morning walkers saw our New York plates. Great place, nice people, I’d go back.

We stayed here a week so we could visit Algodones, MX for dental work. The park is nice. We were on the north side of the park against the fence. Area for our rig was a bit narrow with the slides. Each site has a tree which made it challenging to get into. But I'm not a good backer. The back of our rig faced the railroad tracks. THIS WAS BY OUR CHOICE. I'm a train nut and love to watch trains. This was a great spot for it. I could sit in the rig and watch trains. This is a 55+ park. Many folks were very friendly. They introduced themselves and chatted. If I were going to winter in Yuma, this might be the place for me. Lots of activities for all. The have a card room, exercise room, activities hall, pool, whirlpool, library and billiards room. They have DVDs, VHS tapes and books you can borrow. They have a computer setup for you to use for internet or games. They also have a modem line. The one down side is there is a high charge for WiFi and you can't get it all over the park. Lots of seasonals. But they made it fun. Close enough to Yuma to be convenient without being in town. But we enjoyed our stay. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The overnight spots are 30-amp, no cable TV, against the back wall. This is a 55+ park that is immaculate and friendly. The train noise was no worse than many RV parks and campgrounds we have stayed in. The staff and residents are extremely friendly and eager to be helpful. We would definitely stay here again, but only if we could get a 50-amp site if the weather was warmer. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo
This is a wonderful RV park and the only reason I can't give it a higher rating is due to the train noise. More on that later. A very clean and tidy park with friendly, helpful hosts on site to answer your every question. A lot of long-term folks here but plenty of sites for those wanting to stay a short time. It's pretty easy to get to and it's a good location for visiting Yuma and surrounding sights as well as close to the grocery store and restaurants. It's immmaculately groomed and obviously a park with lots of pride in ownership and a desire to make guests and residents feel welcome. We were parked in the back part of the park (so our satellite TV would work) and the noise from the trains coming all day and all during night was a little hard to take at times. The rumble of the train wasn't bad but they blew that whistle loud and long and the rumble form the train actually vibrated a coach at times. This noise would be the only reason that I probably wouldn't stay here again. Maybe staying in another section of the park would negate the noise? I don't know. If you can sleep through freight trains you'll love this park. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo
Beautiful park! Very well kept. Big spaces that were level. Pool and Rec. area was pretty and well maintained. Out of Yuma by about 6 miles. Only down is train noise. Tracks are about a quarter mile away, but I would stay there again because everything else is so good. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
