This is a family-run park that looks to be an old mobile home park gradually turning into an RV park. Positives - Very friendly owners and staff, very nice newer pool and spa, location is excellent to both downtown Yuma and Los Algodones, and a rarity for most parks in Yuma-- it's not right along the Interstate or train tracks, so relatively quiet at night with only some occasional distant train whistles. We arrived during a very hot and windy day and were glad to get a large site beneath palm trees behind a mobile home that served as a great wind block. Negatives - About 1/3 of the park have very old, rundown, and downright "trashy" mobile homes. and there looked to be a number of 1/2-finished projects or trash piles in various directions. If the owners could focus a bit more on sprucing up these parts of the park, my rating would be higher. Still though, I'd stay here again for the location and price. - WinnieViews

Very disappointing stay. Because we used the PA discount we were told to park behind the office and the only site long enough for us was near an open sewer connection even though there were many other open sites. We had to keep our windows closed and our dogs inside for the whole stay. - GT88

This facility is only good for about a night or two. They charge for wifi and even the showers (that's just not right). Of the 3 showers in the men's room two were out of order. There are two sections with some differences. The lower section is non-pets, while the upper section is pets. The concept is good, however the lower section is clearly better with more manicured sites. Even still the entire place is cram packed with little or no room. Slide outs almost touch. There is mostly dirt and they go by with a water truck daily, which leads to standing mud holes. Hard to understand why they don't invest in rock. Dirt will get dragged inside your camper even with a outside rug. With so many RV's stuffed in one place it is noisy and crowded. The only advantage to staying here over a casino lot is the full hookups. Beyond that is it just too uncomfortable to stay again. - marker82

Staff was very friendly. The park undergoing overdue maintenance, so it is still in need of some upgrades. It has dirt roads and a water truck comes by watering the roads to keep dust down. that makes for mud along the streets. Wifi is only a $1/day, but reception is spotty. You need to take your computer close to the office to get reliable service. I was only able to connect once at my site in the 7 days we were there. there is a park table close to the office where I observed people sitting with their computers. Very pet friendly, and they have a pet walk area, but no off leash area.
Overall, I would recommend the park to others, but just be aware that it is not an "upscale" park, but the price is good. It is an over 55 park, so no children are there. Park has activities scheduled, and folks are pretty laid back. We selected the park because of it's close proximity to the Mexican border. - User3254

I know this park has gotten more than its fair share of poor reviews in the past, and perhaps deservedly so, but the new managers - Michael and Christine - are working very hard to change all that. The park itself is laid out well, with long, wide gravel spaces with long cement pads and grass borders, 50amp, a nice pool and hot tub, a recreation hall and a game room, beautiful palms, and roads wide enough to comfortably negotiate. There is a wee bit of freeway noise and the occasional train, but it's very minimal. This is a very socially active park, thanks almost entirely to the new managers. Our first night there we were invited to a free potluck, of sorts, where the park provided huge, perfectly baked potatoes and a vat of chili, and everyone brought their own toppings to share. This park is a work in progress, and the new managers have already made many improvements, and I predict it won't be long before it's widely recognized as a 5-star resort. - Wryly Blithe

Has large mature trees at the back of every site and green grass! That was the draw for us. Although still lined up parking lot style, each back-in site has shade from the trees and a sense of separation from the neighbors behind. The Colorado River runs through on one end. On the border of AZ and CA and only 2.5 miles from Yuma and 5 miles from Los Algodones Mexico. Huge older park, a bit dated but well maintained. Great laundry facility, library, rec hall and game room. Laid back with very friendly people. Mix of park models and RV's, seasonal and short stay. - NanciRV

We were pleasantly surprised by River's Edge. While the sites are basic and are definitely closer together than we'd prefer, there was enough space in between sites to not feel too cramped. The park is mostly occupied by winter/seasonal RVs, and they don't take reservations for short-term stays, but we called in the morning to confirm that they had space for us for a few nights. The dog walk area is very long, and there are stairs to a gravel service road (not part of the RV park) that we and many others also used for dog walks. During our visit they were doing a trial run of allowing dogs along the "river walk" part of the park as well. Since it was 90 degrees (in February) this was great as our Lab could hop into the Colorado river in a couple places to get wet. There was no WiFi, and our cellular service was only OK. With two bars of Verizon LTE and one bar of AT&T LTE, we got data working on both but it was slow. The staff was friendly, and the park was clean and attractive. There was some highway noise from I-10 but it wasn't too bad (it might depend on how close your site is to the highway). Based only on the sites I'd give the park a lower rating, but because of the good price, the good dog walking opportunities, and the shade from the trees, we give it an overall "8" rating. We need to return to Yuma in the summer when it'll be 110 degrees, and the shade trees here will certainly bring us back to River's Edge. - LifeRebooted

This was going to be a one night stop with some fishing. Fishing is not good, water too swift. The spots are uneven but easy to navigate. The issue for us was the power, as it was unbalanced after a lightning storm came through. One leg was low enough to make me decide to run the generator rather than risk my RV equipment. I could have moved but decided not to with no promise of better power. The staff was great but they were gone when the power went bad so there was no help except to move or put on the generator. There were trees lining the back of most spaces, not ours. I could see that they could block out the morning sun or the afternoon sun, depending on which row you're parked on. Full hookups, 30/50 amp, not level where I was but a number did seem to be better. Dirt and gravel with a cement pad for a patio. Lots of long term residences. Friendly people, which I have not always found with long term residents. - Gilbert & Gail

This LTVA has a dump station, potable water, and rest rooms up near the entrance. It is $40 for 14 days, or $180 for 6 months. This is a harsh area to stay in, & if you aren't prepared it can do you in. Most people have solar panels, generators, etc. The wind is non stop, daily around 15 mph, and sometimes worse. Squaw lake is nearby where you can take a 7 minute shower for $1. Burros roam freely through there that are left over from the mining days. It is a really nice place to stay, but if you don't have solar panels, and other stuff, it will be rough on you if staying long term. A Christian center a couple miles down the road offer church services, a mail room, 2nd hand store, propane (very expensive), there's a solar store there, and other things too. They aren't part of Imperial Dam, and do offer many more things than mentioned. My only gripe is people don't clean up after their pets because they are out in the desert. Some people camping there look like junk yards, but for the most part, everyone keeps their space clean. Imperial Dam also has a boat landing, day use area, swimming area, which Squaw Lake also does. - happy2013camper

We spent three weeks boondocking here, which was our first long term boondocking experience. We absolutely loved it. Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and helpful. As soon as we arrived and started setting up, our neighbors wandered over to introduce themselves and welcome us. They were long-timers who'd been staying here for the winter in the same spot for over a decade. We were really impressed by the well organized and supportive community atmosphere here. During the night this place is amazingly dark and quiet... great star gazing opportunities. It took us a few days to get used to the silence out here! Note that this place isn't going to be for everyone because it's dusty (it's the desert after all), you have to haul your own water, deal with your own sewage, and provide for your own electricity. But if you arrive properly prepared, it's a wonderful experience and super CHEAP camping! We plan on coming back next season for a longer stay. Verizon cell and data service was strong and fast, but AT&T's wireless was extremely weak and unusable. The nightly rate listed is for a two week $40 permit. If you buy a $180 permit good for 7 months, that brings the nightly rate down to less than $1. - Gyropilot

A very interesting place to dry camp. High desert landscape with mountains in the distance. A very large area so if you want to get off by yourself you can. Quite a few permanent winter residents but since the area is so huge that's no problem. Gravel/dirt roads. The reservoir can be accessed and we saw people on the beach and in the water when we arrived in the late afternoon. Next morning we woke up to wild burros looking in the cab window. - casasf

One of the better older Yuma rv parks. A bit run down but serviceable. Some shade, close to a very large park. - ldukeb

I found this park by accident when looking for a reasonable place to stay when my wife and I were going to move from her last Traveling Nurse Job in Las Vegas to her next one in Yuma; we are now in our third winter here. This is an older park, it is clean and quiet. It is close to everything in Yuma. It has access nearby to one of the nicest city parks I have ever been close to, lots of walking and bike trails and very clean and modern, I sailed my RC Sailboat there in their Cement Pond along with other old guys most every day.
This is a park for older people, I believe it is over 55+ only, although I saw some kids come to visit Grandma and Grandpa around the Holidays a couple of times. There are planned activities and communal meals for Holiday Occasions. It is not fancy, but it is very quiet with lots of nice shade trees to keep the trailer cool.
Many of the winter residents have been coming there for years.
The park backs up to the south bank of the Colorado River, across the river to the north is California. - Slvrgost

Spent 5 months at this park. Typical Yuma park with gravel sites. Paved streets and lots of trees. Liked the area. Verizon worked well. Close to shopping and downtown Yuma. - RETE8

West side of Yuma, near Winterhaven, on the Colorado River. Passport America & Escapees discount.
The Low Down The entire park is gravel and the spaces are very, very close to each other. Most are winter residents and they are very friendly. Location, location, location! Close to Mexico (Los Algodones 15 min), close to downtown Yuma and on the river! The main bike trail (paved) starts here and goes for miles. The Visitor center is about 2 miles away. There is one shower for men and one for women, clubhouse and laundry facilities. The park has a boat ramp for your small fishing boat or canoe on the Coloraod River.
Mojo Factor The Manager Larry is super nice and laid back. No list of rules for the park, seems to run just fine without them. The park has a full calendar with organized horseshoes, shuffle board, exercise classes, bingo, card games, karaoke, community meals and more! On Tuesday night they have a BBQ and music on the river, lots of fun. Saturdays they serve a full breakfast for $4. All in all, a good mojo factor.
The Dog's Opinion I walked the dogs down to the river which is an open space area. The reason I chose this park is because it's next to a huge City Park/wetlands called Wetlands West, many acres on the Colorado River. There are paths paved and gravel through the park and walking paths (bark covered) down by the river. I rode my bike with the dogs running through trees and bushes. there is also a large grass park across the canal (2 blocks away), with ball fields and large trees. TV signals on antenna: networks & PBS. Cell phone/Wi-Fi? Verizon is good, 3 bars. Wi-Fi from the park is very slow; I was not able to accomplish anything on it.
Across from the park (north)is another RV park, then the Interstate is next to that, so yes, you can hear the interstate. Next door is Riverfront RV Park, and I plan on checking it out next visit. The sites are a little bit bigger and it is right next to the Wetlands West open space park. - Tails From The Road

Our site was somewhat of a makeshift site to accommodate our smaller rig in this unique laid out park. Trailers and motorhomes seem to be haphazardly scattered around a packed gravel access and egress road. Nonetheless, our site was level and worked well for us with good access to hookups. Residents are mostly seasonal/full time with few daily visitors. There are no amenities, but, what the park lacks in accommodations and amenities, it more than makes up for in hospitality. The manager is very helpful and friendly, but unfortunately will be leaving next season. Close to the interstate for easy traveling access. We would stay here again when in Yuma. - Bart1979

This park is a mix of permanent residents, seasonal residents and short term visitors. The location is just off Interstate 8, near the Colorado River and railroad tracks on the north side of Yuma. We had no problem with noise from the highway or from trains. It has 30 amp service with gravel driveways and gravel sites with a concrete patio pad. There is a laundry and internet service although the Wi-Fi didn't quite reach to our location. Hidden Cove is not fancy but from the moment you talk to the manager, Larry, and then meet the residents here you will feel as if you are a long awaited friend. Everyone extended a smile, a wave and a warm welcome. We were there during Christmas and they had a terrific pot luck dinner. I'm sure there are more upscale parks in Yuma perhaps with more amenities but you couldn't ask for a more welcoming place than Hidden Cove. - Coopsecondact

This is a great park for a few days while visiting Yuma or Algodones, MX. It's in an older, lower class neighborhood but, if that bothers you, you're too good for this park anyway. The manager is what makes this park our favorite place to stay when we visit Yuma. She's such a friendly, outgoing person that you want to go back just to see her.
We've never used the facilities (restrooms, showers, pool, laundry, etc) but that's not why we stay there. It's convenient to Algodones (15 minutes) as well as a variety of services in Yuma.
For the first time, we had a minor problem this year when the kids in the trailer park next door hit our rig with a soccer ball. One word with the manager, and that was the end of that.
The only issue with the space is the location of the sewer. Our dump bay is amidships. The sewer connection is at the back of the space. We would need a 25' hose to dump. We find it easier to dump on the way out at the common dump station across from the office. - LM&TinView

As noted by others, a lower working class area but very safe. Older park with unkept grassy sites but concrete patios. Very quiet park with friendly fellow rv'ers. Mgmt is very friendly and helpful.
Pool is small and only open at certain times. One old shuffleboard but appears useable. We feel very comfortable here and love it's twelve minute drive to Algodones for our dental work which is an extremely safe place with great food and swarming with Americans and Canadians.
Wifi is free but for extra $2 per day and our Netgear extender ($35 on Amazon) it was very fast.
Will definitely stay here again. - Robertg7

We will stay here every time we stay in Yuma. The manager is very nice. The showers worked fine, had plenty of hot water and were clean. The place is older and somewhat run-down, but we will stay here again. - tajmahaulers

This is an older park with mainly long term residents. We stayed over the weekend so never met the managers. Not thing fancy but nice and quiet with trees. Would stay here again. - Smokinghawk49

Once again we spent 3 months here as "Snowbirds". This park has become our second home because of the people and quality of the park. Being older one would expect it to be rundown, that is not the case at all. In fact, they just this year added free wi-fi. Also, this is one of the few parks in Yuma that has grass and trees. NO, there is not a swimming pool or Pickle Ball courts. Though you can play shuffle board & there are other activities, cards, bingo and coffee & donuts once a week. Overall, this is a place to relax and enjoy visiting with other RV'ers if you like. I don't want to ruin the park with a lot of other campers, so please stay away. Yes ... that is meant as a joke. Hope to see more of you next year. - Twotravelers

This is an older park with many trees and grass, also is a 55+ park with wonderful people living there and a management that goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The park is very well maintained and quiet with good access to walking along the canal. Though close, one needs to drive to shopping. - Twotravelers

Stayed three nights in pull through site which was very flat and had several shade trees. six sites in this spot by pool/laundry. Check in on Saturday afternoon was easy. Cable connection missing connector but fixed immediately after our arrival. Clean park with good service. we would return for a short stay. - sp123

Whenever we go to Yuma, we stay at Friendly Acres. It is not a big, fancy park - it is an older park with quite a few older park models. It is neat and clean, and very friendly. They have pull through sites for daily or up to a week, which are right beside the pool and laundry. These sites are not very wide, but the location of the park is good for access to whatever you might want to do in Yuma. This is a gated RV park, with an access code for after 6:00 PM - 7:00 AM. - IslandWest

Friendly Acres was a nice clean and friendly RV park. We were only there 3 nights to visit with friends, but were treated well on arrival, and others in the park were friendly. We didn't take part in any activities. The laundry was excellent with a nice big clothes line area. The pool was excellent and well used. Location of the park is very convenient to all levels of shopping or restaurants in Yuma. - IslandWest
Jan 2012 - $25.00
Fairly nice, clean park for an older park. Nice manager, but watch out for owner. Monthly RV parking was $250 month, plus an additional $250 deposit. I got suckered into a lease that I didn't know I was agreeing to, and so had to stay longer than I had wanted too. If I hadn't my deposit would not have been refunded. Besides electric, they also charge for water use, plus an additions $15 to read the meters. None of this is told to you up front. Would not stay there again, too costly with all the extra's they add on. - usvet
