The park is beautiful landscaping through out the park. The sites are spacious and long. All sites are back in but the interior roads ae wide. They are angled not straight back-ins. The park staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a gated area with guards on duty around the park. The park is designed for long term stays. There are some small homes built on some sites, not the typical park models, these are nicely done. It is a great park. We would return if in the area. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Let me state this resort is impeccable, the lots are gravel but spotless and level, power is clean, lots of water pressure and your permitted to wash vehicles, etc. on Tuesday! A central location for on/off I-8 and close to Los Algodones for shopping/dental work, highly recommended! But it's noisy, vehicle traffic, air traffic, train traffic all night and every night. Other than that this place is a real gem! We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As with other reviewers, this is one very good park. We have a 43 foot motorhome, which we backed in. Wide spaces between sites, even though we parked our toad on the side of the coach. Two beautiful pools, hot tub, and rec center. The burger bash (held twice a month) draws a good crowd, with local music being played - very nice event. They also have other similar events (check schedule).

Two concerts a month. Make sure you book the concert early. The best seating, which use a high back chair and soft seat are used. If the concert is booking up, they use "fold up chairs" which are not comfortable and painful.

Friendly people visiting. The only thing I can gripe about is the electric. For twenty days, we got hit with a $120 bill. The electric portion of the bill was only $60, the rest was taxes, EPA, meter reading, etc. This is not the parks fault (although they do collect $10 to read your meter and bill you) - but is the fault of Arizona power.

All in all - good location, great park, good sites, good service, nice friendly visitors (i.e. neighbors), and events. A bit more cost than other parks, but worth it! We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Wonderful large sites. Beautiful sunsets. Nice dog parks and a nice dog washing station. Beautiful pool and clubhouse area. A very attractive park. A lot of these parks people complain about all the rules but we appreciate the rules they keep the park attractive and clean. Site surface was gravel featuring a patio and sunny/open exposures. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
