Rate reflects Passport America. Washrooms were in terrible shape. Many permanent residents whose trailers were not in the best of shape. Lots of long term folks. Our site was right by the bathroom building, and we had a gentleman drive right up into our site to get his laundry in the night. Would not return and cannot recommend it. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cost reflects Passport America rate. This park is outside of Yuma so there is a short drive to shopping etc. Even though they advertise Wi-Fi, it was not available at our site. They stress that you will have to pay for breaking the water spigots, but it would be useful if they painted them a bright color so that they would stand out. The site was level & wide. The park was nicely laid out & relatively quiet considering they are only 7 miles from an active Marine air base. Be prepared to be awoken each morning by the free running roosters that start crowing around 5 AM. A couple of speed bumps are quite high & you may hit your undercarriage. Good for an overnight. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not worth $410 a month. Facilities are in need of repair. Men's showers have only 1 regular and 1 handicapped that are operable. Shower conditions limit their use before a swim. Shower hot water is barely warm enough to use and sporadically changes to cold for a few minutes at a time. Bathroom is moderately clean. Most of the laundry units are operable. The pool is 87degrees, and the hot tub is inoperative so that limits their use. No dog leash law for full-time renters, so walk you pet with care. Managers and full-time residents are friendly, and there is a good attendance at the potluck and card games. Park is quiet and about 7 miles from Yuma. Would only stay again if no other park options. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very dusty. Dirt & gravel RV sites with the interior roads being loose dirt. Lots of chickens and roosters roaming the park. The flies were horrendous, could not sit outside of RV at any time of the day or evening. We use the shower and restroom facilities at parks. These facilities have not been cleaned lately. The women's shower was extremely filthy. Both the men's and women's restrooms are in need of a remodel. This park is also 10 miles out of town so not convenient for grocery shopping. The pool area is fair at best, very small and it is in need of cleaning. Tables and chairs were filthy, wasn't a clean spot to put a towel on. Hot tub does not work at all. Lots of parks in this area and we will be locating another park when visiting the Yuma area. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 4 nights. The price was for a Passport America Member. It's an old park. Staff was friendly. There were not many people there as it is past the winter season. The flies were horrible. Not sure where they were coming from, but you had to stay in the RV. We were gone most of the time, so it as fine for us. It beat paying $40.00 to stay along I-8.

This park is hard to rate because we arrived at a time of the year that hot and unpleasant. Pluses are that the park is south of Yuma & in the country, there were places out of the park to walk our dogs, and no plane/train noise. The bad news is that there were billions & billions of flies. We had to buy two fly traps just to keep the flies away from our door. The traps filled up within two days they they each hold about 30K flies. The pool was not available and it would have been nice to use in the evenings. Chickens from a nearby farm roamed the park from sunrise to sunset. The camp host was friendly but most of the time, we didn't see another soul due to the high temperatures. We would be hard-pressed to return to this park. Rate was weekly rate. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is Passport America. Facilities worked fine, mostly long term residents, but they are very friendly. Fairly quiet except for the roosters roaming the campground. Gravel/sand sites with a pad (not for parking on) and gravel roads. All back-ins, not too bad for access. Free Wi-Fi generally worked very well, but occasionally slowed down. 10 miles from Yuma. We would stay here again. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We are well pleased with this park. Laundry room is clean and very adequate. Pool looks nice but didn't go in. They keep it covered at night. People are just great. Bit far out of the city of Yuma but quiet and very pleasant park. We have been here one week and are about to sign up for a second week. Rate reflects membership in Passport America. Thanks to this Park for their participation in the Passport America group of campgrounds. We are proud members of PA. We greatly appreciate them making camping affordable. Good park, great people. What more can you ask? Water, sewer, electricity and Free Wi-Fi. A TEN. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an older park full of snowbirds and some full time residents in older park models and RVs. Tenants and office staff are very friendly. Park is way off everything at the southern end of 3E. (7 miles south of MCAS.) They take PPA and for longer stays you can make a deal. WiFi, AT&T and Verizon work amazingly well. Pool is very small. Not an overnight RV park but ok for a longer stay in Yuma. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a month. We choose it because it was close to the Escapees park. It is about 8 miles out of town, but that was fine with us. There was some traffic noise but quieter than here in Quartzsite. The office staff was great, the park was very nice, the people very friendly, great Wi-Fi which was free. The only reason I gave a 9 is because of poor cell reception and the water. They really can not do anything about the water but there was R/O in the kitchen. Cell phone reception is poor (lost a couple calls) due to the nearness to Mexico - Verizon and others do not want to put a cell tower any closer. I would recommend this park to people. We did not use the pool or spa mainly because of allergy to chlorine. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Long way from any services and convenience stores. Very noisy alongside a busy highway especially in the early morning. Restrooms clean and comfortable. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a funky little park, about 8 miles South of I-8 on Ave. 3 East in Yuma. You won’t find any gated community here. Just oleander surrounding the park. The sites are half crushed gravel and half sand, with a small concrete patio, in the middle of farm land. The water pressure is a little low and the landscaping is sparse. The good points of this park are it’s diverse mixture of residents. Skirted mobile homes, RV’s of all types and sizes, and only one model home. The rules here are simple; pick up after your animals, and 5 mph on the roads. Folks are expected to be responsible adults and they are, thus the lack of sheets of posted rules. There is a good sense of community here with pot lucks, pool nights, horseshoe events, etc. The local residents go out of their way to invite you to the events going on. (much more refreshing than some parks with entrenched cliques of people) There is pay for WiFi but that can be had for free in the clubhouse. The clubhouse is older than most, but is well maintained for the amount of use it gets. The restrooms are in good/fair shape and kept clean enough. The new owners that bought this park are trying to balance improvements to the park with the amount of money coming in. We hope they are successful as we like the atmosphere of this type of park much better than the mega parks we have stayed at in the past. We stayed here two weeks and would stay again.

We saw the ad for this park in the Trailer Life book and it was marked as Best Rate. We called to say we were coming. This was Saturday Jan 19th. Arrived about 5-5:30PM. Paid a weekly rate as the space was reserved beginning Jan 25th and no other was available. We planned on staying in Yuma until mid-Feb. We said we would find something else in the meantime. Office closed 6 PM and is closed on Sundays. Got set up into the space and later in the evening as I was walking our dog, the electricity went out. While I was out I met some neighbors out walking with flashlights and they mentioned the electricity had gone out 4 times the night before. Came back into our motorhome and set up the laptop to use with our Verizon wireless. No connection. At the same time I discovered our cell phones did not have any connection. We cannot be without communication. A neighbor mentioned when they used their cell phone they got a Spanish operator and roaming charge. Obviously this park is very near the border. Went on to church the next morning and on the way back we found another place to stay. Got back and loaded up to move to another park and left a note in the suggestion box of what happened and requested a refund. The next day, Monday, went back out there again (9 miles off the main road and quite a distance from center of Yuma). Got there at 1:05 only to discover that lunch hour was 1-2PM and office was closed. Wrote out another note requesting they call us. The lady called to explain the boss, would be out of town until Friday and he would have to make the decision. We returned again on Saturday, the 26th, and was told the boss was busy and they would have to find him to get an answer. We left again. On our way back to Yuma, they called to say we would not get a refund as we had left on our own. Not sure what that means exactly but I reiterated the total situation again and he said he would have the boss call us directly. This is one week later and still nothing from them. I believe we have been very patient. We would not recommend this place to anyone to stay, unless you don't need communication and don't mind challenges with water and electricity. Spaces are nice size. Our cell phones did not get a signal until we got near MCAS which is quite a distance back toward town. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.
