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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

There are lots of attractions in the immediate area.

We were here when it was very hot! Today was 106! I used the small laundry room behind the office which was very efficient. The Wi-Fi is great but that may be to the fact that few people are here during this time of the year. We did not use the pool but it looks very nice. The dog walk area is very nice. Most of the park is park models that are vacant this time of the year. Great walking area as the streets are asphalt. The park models seem to be well maintained. In season I'm sure that it is a very busy park. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

It is a giant complex that is very nice. They had good amenities and nice grounds. They would not allow us to set up x-pens for our two dogs at our site so it was not good for us to stay more than one night. Great for a one night for us. I would stop in again.

Rate is prorated monthly rate. This is our 8th stay at this park. Most spaces are about 35 x 50 feet. Huge improvement over the last two years as new owner has invested heavily in multi sports complex, baseball field and numerous general upgrades. It is also much cleaner than in the past. Countless activities and events - at no or minimal additional cost. Various participatory sporting events / competitions held this year. Much more dog friendly than in the past having opened up two very large and pleasant dog runs with water fountain, jump hoop etc. and clean-up bags provided. No cable TV, but can be ordered for long-term stays. WiFi is free but service very sporadic except at office. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Very large Fry's shop with huge product selection and lowest fuel cost nearby.

We stayed for free 3 nights with a coupon we got at an RV show. The new CalAm owners have put lots of $$ into the park. Excellent pickleball, tennis, shuffle board and Bocci ball courts. Some of the nicest outdoor amenities we have ever seen. The pool area is nice, but per other guests is very crowded during Jan and Feb. Some of the park is full of old park models and it looks quite trashy. The new park model area is very nice. They put us on the main road into the park in a site less than 40 foot deep. Very small slabs. Can hear the freeway noise. They are more interested in selling park models than (which has no security) in the guests. No cable at site. Very poor wi-fi.

Stayed on free coupon. Cal-Am has really upgraded this facility. Wonderful dog parks, wonderful restaurant, great sports area, lots of activities. Well maintained and they have strict rules to keep the permanent resident houses appear nice. Fairly noisy due to all the activity and the music. Spaces were tight but manageable. There isn't a staging area to disconnect. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

We are enjoying this park, it is outside Yuma right next to the foothills. Hiking, biking, lots of activities, happy hours 5 days a week with entertainment. Lot of renovations lately since Cal Am took over. Nice restaurant and bar. They have some pull through spots in a blacktop area for overnight. Came here after spending a month at the most expensive park in Yuma enjoying this place much more. Extending stay and will be coming back here.

If you stop here the registration area is poorly marked. It is on the side of frontage road directly in front of office. If you pull in you will be in old section with small roads. If you go to large entrance saying golf course restaurant you will end up parking 3 blocks away. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Another big snowbird park. Was amused that RVs had to be less than 10 years old despite the presence of a number of much older and run down looking park models. We were there three nights and remained in a paved overflow area, essentially a parking lot with services. We took our rig out the second day and came back to find someone in our site. The staff had messed up, despite their computer which did not detect the situation. In addition, we had people continually walking through our site and hence no privacy. This was partially offset by a close by grassed dog walk, the best thing about this park. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Residential park geared toward long-term guests. There are lots of activities for the energetic, including a great outdoor sports complex. Hookups were easy, though the cable TV didn't work and no one ever told me where to walk the dogs. There was no dog walk area shown on the park map handed out at check in. The laundry room was huge and I never saw anyone having to wait fo a machine while I was there catching up on two weeks worth of laundry. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

The rate reflects a fall special. The cost is $595 from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31st. We weren't able to arrive until mid-October, but the price is still the same. A very good deal for the fall. It was quite hot when we first arrived, but cooled off nicely into the 70s and 80s for Nov. and Dec. This resort was purchased a few years ago by the Cal-Am corporation. They have done many upgrades including a beautiful sports complex with 8 pickleball courts, 6 tennis courts, very nice shuffleboard area, horseshoes and bocce ball. The two pools and hot tubs are also very nice. A full calendar of activities to keep you busy. This resort has over 1,200 sites. There are two sections. The older section has quite a few park models. Some are quite old, but the resort is working on getting them removed. The newer section is all gravel pull-through sites with paved roads. FHU sites with 50 amp electric. Wi-fi throughout the park. It worked fairly well, especially when it wasn't too crowded yet with the rest of the snowbirds. There is also a full length 9 hole golf course on the property which we played regularly. Much work is being done to improve the course and green fees are very reasonable. Many Canadians, but people were very nice. This is a 55+ park, but there are many very active residents. We liked it so much we are coming back next winter for the full season. We would have given it a 10 if there weren't so many old park models in the older section.

Have stayed here before. There is a good restaurant located at the RV park. The only drawback is the location is way on the east side of Yuma. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects Passport America. This is a clean, fairly quiet park if you are further away from the interstate. We were in the upper area which is a gravel parking lot with cement patios. The large gravel stones meant that you had to watch your footing walking around the motor home. There are only back in sites in this area. There are a lot of improvements being carried out in the campground facilities. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a month stay. This is an older park that has recently become a Cal-Am park..lots of renovations completed. In park roads are paved. Great new sports complex for tennis, shuffleboard, bocci, & horseshoes. Talented local entertainment performs every night for happy hour at the pool patio or sports-plex patio. Lovely pools and hot tubs. Would recommend staying in the newer side where the RV sites are larger, each having a cement patio but no picnic table. Lots of activities, a few have a charge, but lots to do without extra fee. WiFi was good at our site, but not everywhere I'm told. We would stay here again.
