We were here from Apr 1-8 (Wed-Wed), 7 nights. It cost $33/night. Site # 377. This is a true resort. It has more facilities than you can use. Swimming pools with spas, exercise room with weights, billiards, community room, crafts rooms, massage, chapel, events, huge laundry, shuffleboard, etc. The resort is gated with paved roads and security patrols. It is an ownership type park, so you can buy a lot ($96,000) and build anything from a customized RV site up to a small house. Everything is clean and well maintained. Nothing is overlooked. Very large sites with gravel for the RV and a large concrete patio. 20/30/50 electric. No picnic table. No fire pits. The water is fairly good quality with about 60 psi. But it will spot when washing the coach. Basic cable is included. The resort wifi is fair to good. It does slow down at times and is not fast enough for streaming but works fine for most web surfing. Individual internet subscription can be bought from Time Warner Cable or Centurylink. The laundry room is large with quality machines all in good condition and working. Wash $1.50. There are two swimming pools and two spas with tables, chairs, lounges, umbrellas. Very nice. The staff is perfect, professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and always willing to help and answer questions. They have many activities (schedule) and concerts, however, we were there in April and things were winding down for the summer. The resort was mostly empty during our stay. Other guests (repeats) were very friendly. This resort is on the east outskirts of Yuma but still close to shopping and services. The main issues for us are that the military flies over the resort (helicopters and fighters) which can be quite loud. The train is far enough away you barely hear it and they don't blow the horn. Occasionally the wind will come from the SW and you realize that one mile from the sewage treatment plant is not enough. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Overall this is a very nice resort. November through March is their season when they are filled up and but have lots of activities and events. It is also close to Los Aldodones which makes a nice day trip for vision, dental, shopping, or just lunch. If you need auto or RV painting try Navarro's Brothers in Algodones at Avenue A & 8th.

We are usually not fans of fancy RV Resorts, preferring to stay at county/state parks. However, The Palms in Yuma (55+) really impressed us. We were only there for three nights on our way to California (under 55 welcome for short stays), but wished we could have stayed longer. The park was beautiful, with trees, plants, and blooming flowers everywhere. The campsites aren't exactly spacious, but they were not nearly as cramped as many other RV parks/resorts we've been to. We used the pool and hot tub daily (there are several of each), which is unusual for us. There are some permanent sites, but instead of Park Models, they are custom-built upscale homes which add to the appeal of the resort, rather than detract from it. It's clearly meant for seasonal/snowbird stays, but they do offer daily and weekly stays as well. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, staff and other campers alike.

We were glad to find that the resort is extremely dog friendly. Apart from having two large off-leash fenced dog areas (one for large dogs, one for small), there is also a nice dirt walking trail all the way around the perimeter of the park (exactly a 1-mile walk) which was great for our daily walks with the dogs. Dogs can be walked almost anywhere in the resort but the trail was perfect.

We would stay here again, even with the somewhat high daily rate (typical for a resort with these amenities). We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is probably the nicest RV resort in the area. It is more expensive than some of the older parks but you do get what you pay for. Every imaginable amenity. If you like to participate in activities, it seems there are multiple things going on every day. Grounds and facilities are immaculate. Staff is friendly. The Park is a mix of owned lots and rental lots. The owned lots don't have cookie cutter park models. Everything is built on site. Some lots have a storage shed only, other have a small sleeping casita with washer/dryer, others have small two bedroom homes. Not sure of the demographics but it seems that more than half of the owners and snowbirds are Canadian. Everyone we met was very nice. Nice fenced, grass dog parks and other grassy areas for walking on lead. The community is gated with access cards and has security that makes the rounds twenty-four hours a day. We stayed a month which was enough for us. Not much hiking or mountain biking. Lots of great Jeeping out in the desert. The local fresh vegetables and fruit are cheap and flavorful from local roadside stands. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Yuma is the place to get anything for your RV or anything done. Had residential frig install by Family RV. Visit Territorial Prison Museum, Quartermaster Museum, Yuma Proving Ground Heritage Center, Kofa NWA and Picacho SRA. Jeeping - Valley of the Names, Skull Rock/Queen Canyon, Big Eye Mine, King of Arizona Mine and MacPherson Pass. Hike Palm Canyon. Go to Los Algodones for quality glasses at 1/3 the price and cheap prescriptions. In Yuma eat at the La Fonda Tortilla Factory and El Charos.

The most pet friendly resort that we have ever visited with both a big dog and little dog park of beautiful green grass plus the caliber of guest staying here picks up after their dogs. Spacious gravel backin sites with concrete patios. Hookups were perfectly situated for us. Large lap pool, splash pool and two separate spas. No picnic table. Great cable tv with a number of HD channels. Entertainment and activities galore. Even allow vehicle washing on Tuesdays. Street side garbage pick two days a week. Nice bright street lighting in 90% of the park for walking after dark except for one section where they seemed to have used very dim LED lighting making that area look second or third rate after dark. Fortunately our site was not in this area. The only other deficiency was the WiFi which fluctuated from being good to being poor. Neither of our GPS's recognized their street address. Rate was based upon a two week stay. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, clean park with large sites and many amenities. While there are some "park model" sites, they are all very well done and the vast majority of the sites are RV sites. You can own or rent here, and there are a large number of "snow birds" here for 3-6 months. Even so, there is good availability for shorter stays as well. We rented for a week and were very pleased! And for the price, it's a real bargain. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this resort five days. Magnificent facilities. All perfectly cared for: pools, lounges, laundry, gardens, etc., etc.

Surveillance, extreme, to the point that made us better to place the RV in the plot, quite spacious by the way, that was a little uneven. The front desk staff magnificent, speaking Spanish if necessary. We are from Spain. The wifi works fine, no problems, and is located near a shopping street in Yuma, with plenty of shops and RV services.

Only one problem: the address is not on the GPS, so I provided them the coordinates of access for other users.

Highly recommended. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is the nicest park we have ever been in! We actually considered buying a space. There are lots of high quality activities. There are two spas, a lap pool, and a splash pool. The nicest shuffleboard courts we've ever seen anywhere! Tennis, paddle ball, putting, etc. There's a craft room, jewelry room, billiards room, poker room, library, laundry room, activities room, exercise room, etc. Weekly live music ($). Helpful staff. Gated community with 24-hour controlled access.

It is pricey, but very, very nice. There are no park models; they are stick built with an adobe style. Strict rules on decorations, models, even flags!

They expect to sell all the lots eventually, but until then they rent out the spaces. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The GPS and Google maps will lead you astray! Do not believe them.

Find Avenue 7E and head south. It is a few blocks south of 32nd ave (8 Business) on a dead end road. The street address is

3400 S Avenue 7 E

Yuma, AZ 85365

There is more road noise on the north side

The rate paid was for a promotion (50% discount). This is a very lovely park. The staff are very friendly and the park has all the amenities you would want. There are some full time residents and lots of winter visitors. The lots are level and you have lots of space between sites. The sites are gravel with a cement pad for your sitting area.

Haven't found a more dog friendly RV park with it's two separate large fenced dog runs (one for under 25lb, one for over 25lb) with beautiful lawn and a bathing room for dogs. Haven't found a nicer RV park for us with all the amenities. Two separate pools with one being a large lap pool and the other being a splash pool, two large jacuzzi, billiard hall, tennis courts, 1000 person ballroom for entertainment, spotless private showers and the list goes on. At check in, we were presented with a great package of info with maps and lists of needed business's. Fantastic rate was a half off for first timers that ended on 12/31. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights using a special half price deal. Beautiful, well kept park. Large, well separated sites. It seemed that about half the lots were used by owners, mostly Canadian snowbirds. Lots of friendly folks that stay here year after year and lots of activities scheduled as well as concerts. Did not try the internet, but got very good Verizon signal for our own service. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The nightly rate listed reflects the Dec. monthly rate. Difficult to give an overall rating for this park as it is a lovely, well maintained park but totally overpriced for this area. Yuma is not Palm Springs. Jan/Feb/March rate rose to $1100.00 per month plus electricity! Park is 25% empty due to hikes in pad rents. We won't be back until they get a grip on reality . The Wi-Fi is unreliable with frequent 'drops' and would be impossible if the park was full. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow! This is a great place to stay. All the campers here were very friendly. We came in on Christmas eve and were invited to a Christmas dinner the next day. Looks like management's strategy is to convert the property from RV sites to villas (houses small enough to fit on one or two RV sites). About 10 percent of sites already have villas on them. Fortunately the staff was off for the holiday so we had no sales pitch. Still one of the best places we have stayed. Excellent facilities. Would certainly camp here again.

This park is going to be our “go-to” park in Yuma from now on. The staff are fantastic. They are friendly, helpful, and always around. The shower/washroom combinations are private, clean, and spacious. They are some of the nicest I’ve seen. The laundry room is clean and roomy. The sites are large with concrete pads for chairs/tables. It’s a little noisy from planes and cars, but not bad. The people here are very friendly. I love that it is a locked gate facility, makes us feel very secure. Well worth the price for what you get here. We’ll definitely be back again. I would have given this place a 10, but the internet is slow. The price is based on a weekly rate. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. This is a owner/rent park with very nice facilities. Pools/spa are salt-water and are top notch. The gym is excellent. It appears there are lots of winter activities here, although we were a little early to take advantage of this. The rental sites are gravel with a large concrete pad. Water was very hard so bring a softener. The only negative, which is why I didn't give it a 10, was the Wi-Fi which was worthless. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for a little over 2 weeks while getting dental work done in Mexico. There were only 8 sites open and most of the time, there were only 2 used. There were a couple people who owned their lots here. We had the awesome pool area to our selves most of the time. Would stay here again. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.
