We have stayed at other Cal Am Parks since 2009. Compared to parks in Mesa AZ this is a horrible disappointment. The park has very poor signage to register. A big sign on a block wall for the park AFTER the office to register. We had to turn around and go back. Three people in front of us and we got told by the ranger we would have to park ourselves. Other Cal Am parks won't allow you to park in a site without ranger assistance. When we called to tell them we had an issue, no one answered the phone even though they had 6 people behind the counter "chatting" with each other. Left a message and no one returned our call. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

First of all I want to point out some issues that we had this time . Power outage, this was a problem in just a small segment of the park which just so happen to be where we were at, now keep in mind most of the people have left in our segment maybe 5% of the people are still here, I get a letter in my mailbox explaining that because of the usage of power due to hot days we are recommended to turn our generators on at 12 o'clock this is unacceptable, the ambient temperature has been in the upper 90s without getting into electricity 101, instead of trying to push the blame on a small small percentage of customers in one particular area the park needs to take the measures to use a shade or fan on their transformers therefore on hot days and believe me 90° is not very hot down here this issue would not happen. To me it comes down to money the park does not want to spend the money because this problem only probably comes up one or two days maybe three in March and after that everybody is completely out of this area anyway so they shut it down, so therefore give everybody a lame excuse and maybe just maybe they'll forget about it. Also the park has very little weed control again they must wait till everybody leaves come in and do their thing and then do it next year the same time. Enough said on negatives on the positive side, the park has a very nice pool area and excellent restaurant and bar on site and also has a very nice pickle ball and tennis court area along with the other sports that people utilize. The sites that you are on are gravel which is sufficient there is no shade so your motorhome provides the shade so were the sun happens to hit is which way you're facing. The entrance to the park is a little confusing you actually have a gravel pull out area opposite of the office which I hear this is going to be moved and then you're turning into the park is a slight grade and turn to the left with no turning lane that's where your entrance is to the park. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.
The foothills area you have everything close nearby shopping, RV repair, golf, Starbucks whatever you need

Pros. Price is great value and beautiful park. Lots of amenities and friendly people. Nice big pool. Nice wide roads. No nickle and diming. Mountains in background. Very close to Mexico so get your teeth fixed, prescription glasses, and prescriptions at extremely low prices. Lots of pickle ball courts. Cons. The neighbours beside us had dogs that wouldn't shut up. Some dune buggies were extremely noisy at the park, they should be banned. Woke us up early morning and just a nuisance. Also there isn't much out side the park to do as far as nature trails and sites. All and all we will be back there next year. It is a great park and totally a fair monthly price. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with very good activities. Nice restaurant with a limited menu and good value. Park is located right off of Highway 8 but noise was not an issue. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Checked in on a Saturday 2:20 in the afternoon. Office closed. No where in the confirmation did it warn us about this plus signage marking the entrance to the office is awful and if you are lucky enough to figure it out you better have a very small rig because staging area is very small...It would have been so easy to include these details ( check in procedures & hours ) in the confirmation. This park definitely caters to long term guests and most people we ran into are very happy and seem to enjoy the park however if you are only staying about 7 days consider other parks. The pull through site that we stayed in was basically a large black top parking lot with one very small tree at the utility pedestal, lots of traffic going by regularly. Cars on one end and golf carts/ ATV's heading to the main dog park..Luckily they weren't too busy and we did have lots of space on either side of us and a nice view of the mountains out our back window. Wi-Fi is a joke could never get a good connection luckily our IPad has a Data Card and we could use the T-Moble Cell Data. Staff onsite and volunteers all seem very nice and the full timers seem to enjoy it here but for short term stays I wouldn't recommend it. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Fifth Wheel.
Enjoyed Yuma Proving Grounds, Castle Dome Mine & Prison Museum....

Great value at the PA rate. The resort is large, packed full of amenities and activities, including a 9 hole golf course. Everything is in impeccable condition. Customer service was very friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing I rated this park down for was the pull thru parking area. The spots are all wedge-shaped, with a very narrow side and a wide side. Utilities are on a shared pedestal, so rigs are parked driver's side to driver's side. Each site is a little different, but due to the odd shapes, you might have trouble getting slides out within your space, or reaching the utilties, or you may have to choose between those two things. As it was, there were only a handful of people there, so it was not an issue, but had the park been full, it would have been a big problem. Nearly every rig in this section was lapsed over some part of their marked off area. I went to look at the back-in section, and there was no such problem there. Those sides are very spacious. One advantage of the pull thru section, though, was that it was much farther away from the interstate, and you could barely hear the traffic from there. Wifi was typical park wifi, slowed to a crawl every so often, but ok for email and light browsing. Verizon was strong. Lots of o/a tv, provided you speak Spanish!

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. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.
Lots of good restaurants near by, Fry's Supermarket close.
RV Parts/Service store near by. This camp is a little outside of Yuma, but there is still everything you need within a few blocks. We found a hardware store, RV parts store & service. We found a great Chinese restaurant with 3 blocks, and several other great restaurants within 4-5 blocks. Even a large Fry's supermarket within 3 blocks of the park.

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. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

This is a giant park. It includes pools, spas. Tennis courts, pickle ball, sports complex, softball, golf, activity rooms, beauty salon, barber shop, 9 hole golf course. The sites are gravel, no grass, small trees ( more like a bush), so if it's hot, you will be in direct sun. I-8 interstate is right there, so if possible, get further back into the park. Otherwise, you will be serenaded by 18 wheelers. Sites are close together, so don't expect much room to spread out. No picnic tables. Bathrooms were nice, showers were fantastic, laundry good, there is drinking water stations on site also. There is a restaurant onsite and I've heard that it is very good.
Mojo Factor (mojo=community, good vibes) Yes, there is some good vibes in this park. Many folks were friendly to me in my 3 night stay. There seems to be a lot going on, activities galore, active group of people. If I had stayed longer, I'm sure I would have tried more of the activities.
The Dogs Opinion (it's all about the dogs). The dogs loved it! Why, because there is a great dog park, with agility equipment, which we played on. There was grass in the dog park also, which they seemed to really enjoy. Near the dog park is a grassy area with a gate that leads to a giant gravel wash, that you can walk your dog off leash . There is another dog park onsite also that is larger and further away. There is a lot of property in this park, plenty of walking area.
TV On the roof antenna, 3 networks were ok at times and then iffy at other times. On a wind storm, I lost all stations, they returned the next day.
Cell/Wi-Fi Verizon was strong. The park Wi-Fi was slow as most are, but I was able to do an overnight update on my phone.
Parting Thoughts: This is a great park for dogs and I would stay here again if I needed to be on this side of Yuma. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.
The Fry's store in at the Fortuna exit is fabulous and has a great natural food section. Multiple RV parts stores around, good place to get RV repair done.

Rate is based on their monthly rate. We rely on RV Park Reviews in selecting a park if the area is new to us. There are many, many 55+ parks in this city so we came in without a reservation after calling and being assured there were always sites available. Arriving on the 1st of January we found a long check in line! There were 70 reserved arrivals and more of us w/o reservations. The manager came and offered snacks and water while waiting, conversing and answering questions as we waited. The office staff were professional, patient, and friendly. We were offered a choice of sites. All sites are either gravel or paved and hook ups are standard. Work campers will escort you to your site. There are concrete patios, but because it's a desert you need to bring your own shade. The size of this park is a bit overwhelming but it doesn't take long to become familiar with the lay out. It's a beautiful setting in the foothills. There are plenty of activities to give you opportunities to meet new friends. The dog run is nice with some shade. Satellite TV is strong, Verizon works well. Wifi is poor even though our site is near a repeater. We've been here a week, plan to stay a month but will likely extend our stay. We believe this is the best value in the area. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

We were given 3 free nights at the Quartzsite RV show so we decided to give it a try and we were so happy we did! The sites were large and the people were VERY friendly. The pool area was definitely a resort, with padded lounges and a happy hour with $2 drinks and live music every afternoon except Sunday. The sports facility was amazing, many bocce ball, shuffle board, horse shoes, pickle ball and tennis courts. The on site restaurant was great. We didn't get a chance to play golf, but the course looked great. We will definitely return to this resort! We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.
The prison tour was interesting. Shopping at the mall was great. The big RV store was amazing.

The park is clean modern updated facilities, close to shopping, with activities for everyone. Sites are large and the staff are friendly and helpful, rates are average for this quality of park. Unfortunately there is no cable, but there are 9 channels available but 4 are Spanish TV. WIFI available but below average quality. Internet is available at a cost. I would recommend staying at this park for an extended stay. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Fifth Wheel.

The visitors center has a very nice museum. We were directed to eating places in the historic downtown. We also visited the prison museum which is very nice, Castle Dome Mines, and Algodones, Mexico. Lot of history in the area to see.oniedu • July 2015

Make sure to ask where to walk dogs. I just made mine poop by the trash can, since I didn't know where else to take them.BeagleMama • February 2015
Not much to do or see in Yuma itself, but do visit the old prison. Dry, windy and dusty much of the time. Three is a small golf course on site, plus the usual snowbird activities.BMonk • February 2015
