Several years ago we spent a few days at the Del Pueblo RV Park And Tennis Resort
We found it to be a very nice facility with friendly management. It's located at 14794 Ave 3E Yuma, AZ 85365

Safe travels,

We are going to Yuma for a few days in January and I checked RV Reviews and went with Yuma Palms RV Resort. They are a little pricey but they are running a special and if you book before December 30 or 31st you get it for half off. From their website, it appears they have a ton of activities.

Smile Yuma RV Parks

You might check the location of Del Pueblo, if it the one I think it is, it is about 7 or 8 miles out of town. There are a few that are out of the city and 3E is a 2 lane road with a lot of truck traffic. Bike riding or walking would not be a good idea. With that said it is a nice park.

There are a lot of parks to choose from, we have been going to Yuma for 3 years and it took us 2 years to find a park we enjoy. We honestly spent a Saturday and Sunday last year looking at RV Parks and I figure we looked at about 20.

After all our searching....we stay at Caravan Oasis and it is an older park, but suits are needs. 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, pickle ball courts, volleyball, great bike riding and shopping within a couple of minutes. Actually you can walk or bike to a nice shopping area.

Good luck & safe travels!

We have checked out many of the parks in Yuma and although there are lots of good ones, we found most were pretty tight for space with a larger coach and slides. Stayed at Fortuna Del Oro, in the Foothills (East side of Yuma). Sites were large gravel with concrete patio pad, and paved streets. Lots of activitiies including a nine hole golf course.

I agree, hands down, the nicest RV park we have ever stayed in.

Best is in the eye of the beholder!
What is your definition of "best"?

During the past 10 winters we've boondocked for a week or two at one of the many BLM "14 day free" areas around Yuma, near Lake Havasu City and in southern California, (as well as at Slab City: Slab City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

To us Boondocking is Best.

As noted, it is always best to define "best". We really enjoyed the Palms last February when we stayed there. For a full service resort, it is very nice. I'd go back to the Yuma area any time (well, at least in the winter).

Mel: We are heading to the Parker/Lake Havasu area in a couple of weeks. What can you recommend for BLM sites around there? Actually never really boondocked before but we are bringing our RZR side by side and would love to stay somewhere where we can just take off and ride. Do you have some good suggestions?
Thanks
darcan

Along AZ 95 between Parker dam and lake Havasu city there are several places you can see off the highway where people Boondock. Also, Shea road out of Parker, lots of desert to camp and hundreds of miles of trails. Arizona is very friendly to off road vehicles.

Best is what you think is best

Mel et al,
You're correct; best needs a definition. We are definitely not desert area boondockers; a lake or a trout stream back in our Michigan, maybe. We define best as pools, hot tubs and pickleball courts. We did do one night on BLM land near Quartzsite. Now, we just shake our heads in wonder as we roll by.
We saw a lot of Boondocking between Parker and Lake Havasu City, and that had a lot more appeal for me, but My Darlin' isn't about to go for that, and I like her a lot.
Best to all Y'all.
Michguy
