I have stayed in this park for extended periods of time and have also seen the park improve from stay to stay. Most recently the former pond has been filled and sown to grass, a lot of painting has happened around the clubhouse, the palm trees have been peeled and grounds are being kept cleaner. The club house hosts activities such as cards, games, suppers, and some dancing. In November we enjoyed a pool party and a happy hour. The pools is being maintained well as are the laundry rooms and restrooms. There are issues beyond anyone's control such as flies and gnats and some road noise issues. The wifi has been upgraded and there is an attempt to provide better coverage. Due the parks proximity to the Mexican border it is difficult to use cell phones without the danger of paying international roaming fees. I think that over time improvements will continue to happen. The people in the park are friendly and are trying to get things happening for the recreation and enjoyment of all residents. The sites are large with gravel and concrete pads. Electrical is very adequate as are sewer and water services. Drinking water is best purchased in town. People complain about the chickens in the park and I don't like them much either but others find them charming so each to their own. A park is what you make of it. The cost to stay in this park is minimal and that translates into less funding for upgrades and amenities. We like the park and encourage others to give it a try. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Cabin.

This is a smaller RV park about 7 miles south of Yuma. This means it is out in the country and a bit of a drive for shopping. The upside is, its fairly quiet. Access is big rig friendly, The sites are larger than normal for this area with plenty of width for your rig, your awning, and your car all side by side. Hookups are good but the water is typical " can't drink it" for this area. Roads are sort of paved and sites are gravel and SAND! We actually had to move after one night because the site they assigned us to was a sand pit. And this is the fine, dusty sand that blows and gets in and on everything! There are several permananet residents here and the park management doesn't seem to have any standards on what you do at your site. Some of the places are cobbled together and run down and we had chickens running through our site before we moved.

Park wifi is marginal as is Verizon 4G.

We stayed 5 nights because we paid up front and it is OK for a short stay, just be aware of what you are getting. We will try not to come back. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is located outside of Yuma on South 3E Avenue. Spacious lots, 50 amp power, clean, warm pool, good laundry and clubhouse facilities made enjoyable by friendly, down-to-earth folks. Always a good visit! New management is steadily making improvements to the park with park roads scheduled to be chip-sealed in near future. We camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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 camped at Southern Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.
