Third stay and each time we stay longer and still wish that we had stayed even longer yet. We love it and our dogs love it. Most pet friendly RV Resort that we have ever visited and our littlest dog is depressed that we are no longer there and she can no longer go to the large fenced dog park and visit all the other small dogs. We love all the activities at the park and all the amenities especially the gym and the lap pool. Sites are gravel and large with a concrete patio. Water, sewer, electric and cable is good. WiFi is the only weak point, gets overloaded during peak hours to the point of being unable to connect, slow and/or drop offs. Except for one area of the park, the paved roads are well lit making evening walks around the park looking at the high end casitas and coaches enjoyable. The entire park is fenced with a gated entry with security. Your GPS may send you way north into the farm fields. With stays over 30 days electricity is separate. Rate shown is the sum of the base rate plus electric divided by the number of days. Electricity is expensive at over $.15 per kwh so electricity cost can really jump depending upon consumption. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are separate dog parks for small dogs and large dogs so pick your site to be close to the appropriate fenced park or if you are more interested in the pool/spa/clubhouse activities also pick your site.

Stayed here for 3 months in a 42" 5th wheel. Nice sites on white crushed stone and large concrete patio. The facilities are 1st rate with the exception of the WiFi system. First park we have ever had to purchase WiFi from an outside vendor because park quality at site was so poor. The park charges for electricity at rate of $0.16/kwh (higher than normal). These extras add to the base cost of the site fee so be aware. However, the people are great, the activities are many and the facilities are 1st rate. The gated community and the casitas spread throughout facility give the park a nice feel. They have a wonderful library and game room along with a nice fitness facility. Service at front desk could be somewhat improved by having more knowledgeable people. I basically had to beg them for my electric bill because it was so late in coming. They also could not tell me electric rate cost at check-in. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Yuma is a dusty, agrarian area with fewer activities than many places. All the necessary stores/services are available within short drives. There are some community theater productions and a few hikes worthwhile near the mountains. It's a nice place to spend winter, but would not want to live here.

The sites were plenty big for any size camper and a good size parking space for another vehicle. The large stone base made it a little hard to get the camper into the spot and even hard to walk on them.
This campground had everything you could want. The pool room had at least 10 pool tables, as many shuffleboard courts, tennis, horseshoes, etc.
The only complaint was the WiFi. For such a nice resort you would think that they could provide adequate coverage. We had lots of trouble getting dropped and connected.
We would stay for an extended period again. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Greatest park we have found in 10years of rving. Beautiful gated (key access) park, two large heated swimming pools (one lap pool), two extra large hot tubs, nicely equipped gym, massage therapist on site, huge billiards room, huge library, beautiful humungous grand hall, shuffleboard courts, bocce ball, horseshoe pits, craft room, clean washer/dryer room with common clothes lines, two fenced in dog parks, walking paths, sites are huge, with paved or patio brick patio, etc. etc. The internet is available but NOT the best. They offer first timers a great bargain, ask about the 1 for 1 program. Organized events, activities and beautifully appointed grounds. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Large shopping plaza within 15minute drive. Grocery store 5 minute drive, easy access to I8, easy access to downtown Yuma.

Customer service was poor throughout our stay. Check in was a hassle, security guard had an attitude, and the entire property is very stuffy. Upon check in, instead of answering basic questions, my wife was handed a packet by the customer service lady, who also happened to sell real estate in the park. All sites are back in, and a large part of the resort is owner/occupied. It's gated, grounds are very nice, but not a comfortable stay or pleasant. Too many RV resorts/parks in the area to choose from, will not stay here again. We were on our last leg from Big Bend, and encountered much friendlier and easier places to park in Las Cruces, Lajitas, and Benson, AZ. If you are super old, like to participate in silly activities and organized events, basically have your stay monitored by a team of security personnel, this is the place. If you like to park your RV without hassle and attitude, and then enjoy what Yuma has to offer, this place is not it. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a top notch RV resort for those in their retirement years. The pools, hot tubs, and activities areas are the nicest I have found in a campground. The staff is also very friendly.

The pads are nice and big, with plenty of space left over for a few extra vehicles, should you have them. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects the nightly off-season rate in September at $200 per month. In Oct. it jumps from $33 to $44 in high season Jan-Mar. The best rate is to stay the season (6 months) when it averages $20 plus electricity.

Beautiful park, as already expressed here, but the management is not very professional. I was never able to get a correct answer out of the registration person (my guess is there is not a proper training program in place). They charge a $100 electrical deposit against the final bill. After several tries, I finally got all the paperwork done by the next day.

Even though the park was closed for several months, they did not start oiling the streets until after the park opened. The power was off for several hours at different times during one of Yuma's monsoon storms.

I was able to secure a space to park my sixteen year old motorhome after sending a photo. The park policy is maximum 10 years old. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Yuma's temps stay in the 100's until about mid-Oct., so make your plans accordingly. Short freeway hop to the large commercial mall. Yuma has the largest flea market in the state, great place to shop for RV items, carpets, patio chairs, and most anything.

Awesome resort and deserves to be called a resort. Anything and everything a camper could wish for is there. Nice crushed stone sites with huge cement patios. WIFI was inactive because of the off season. We stayed there 7 nights. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

San Diego is 2.5 hours and a world away. Also the Colorado River is 4 miles away.

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.

We stayed at a special rate of buy one month, get one free for first time visitors. This resort is a membership park where all lots are for sale, and those that aren't sold yet are rented by the corporation that owns it. Although there are some very nice amenities including fairly large sites, a beautiful pool area and activity buildings, and nice landscaping; there were many reasons we would not stay here again. We definitely would not buy a lot here. Prices were quite high, and you run the risk of someone buying the neighboring lot and putting a large house on it so all you see are walls as your view. Also, they advertise 24/7 security with a manned guard house at the gate. About 90% of the time we were coming or going, there was no one in the guard house. Residents have a card to swipe to open the gate. We frequently witnessed several cars lined up waiting to get in, and a resident would come along and swipe their card to open the gate and anyone could drive in without being checked out. The security was a joke. There are only two tennis/pickleball courts. The tennis courts have pickleball lines painted on them so these courts are often in use and it is difficult to get to play. There are very nice shuffleboard courts. They have a full calendar of activities, some cost extra. There was lots of construction going on throughout the park on lots that were sold, so it was quite noisy from that as well as a nearby train track and planes going over to the nearby airport. The wi-fi did not work the entire time we were there. The office washed their hands of it and said to call the company who blamed the resort. Office people were not very helpful or knowledgeable. We felt this resort was very overpriced for the area, and there are many other choices in Yuma for a better price. We would not stay here again. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
