Yuma Lakes RV Resort

6275 S Avenue 8 ½ E
Yuma, AZ 85365
928-726-5860
3/9-3/12/2012


This is a Colorado River Adventures park which is a membership park that we used our Coast to Coast membership. We paid $10 with no additional charges for a water, electric, sewer, back-in, level, gravel site with free WiFi. Our Verizon MiFi worked exceptionally so we did not even log onto theirs.


We were greeted very nicely, even though it was early in the morning of our check in day, not a problem they escorted us to our site. Included with their brochure, they gave us a book that had information about the area and coupons from local area establishments to use during our stay, very welcoming.

They have all sorts of activities throughout the resort, shuffleboard, horseshoes, Bingo, pool and spa, and so much more.


There is a lake for fishing, but we were told we would need an Arizona Fishing License to partake. They even have a restaurant open all week long that serves some pretty good choices at a great price.


They have several laundry facilities and the one we were closest to was small, only a half a dozen washer and dryers and each time we came by there were people waiting. Thank goodness we were able to wait and do it at our next location.

The resort is old, but they maintain it well, several restrooms and showers were located throughout the resort, that were kept clean. If we are ever in the area again we would most certainly stay here.



Back when we were in our stationary lifestyle our home was decorated in the southwestern motif and since we had our own tile installation business, my favorite thing to do with tile was and still is mosaic. We created so many items with this design and for me it was like therapy and knowing just how time consuming it can be, it is appreciated when we see other creations. Here are just a few of the southwestern and other artwork that you will find throughout the resort.

We've stayed at Yuma Lakes several times. It is a nice place to stay but we didn't stay this year. We did drive to the around it but found that area that surrounds the park which normally allowed boondocking no longer does. I wonder what happened. A lot of RVers would just boondock for their week out of the park. Now it's closed.

Great review. Jim would especially love the fishing since he already has the AZ license.

John and I really like Yuma. His parents use to go there in the winter when they came down from British Columbia. They always stayed at Country Roads. We use to enjoy visiting them there. We're in Laughlin today. Our first time here. We're exploring around and hear that we must go see the old mining town Oatman near here. So tomorrow, we'll probably go do that. We discovered Bend in the Colorado State Park and stayed there last night. It was deluxe. Take care then...

Sure looks like a nice place to hang out. We do not have a Thousand Trails membership...yet. Has it worked well for you? Would you buy one again?
