Cocopah RV and Golf Resort, Yuma

I decided to stay here due to the less expensive RV parks in the Yuma area being closed for the season. Visiting family, and they are on the west side of town, so this seemed to be just about the only place near-ish by that was even open.

Pros:
  • Open year 'round
  • Not age restricted
  • Full hook ups (Not necessary for me, I would have been happy with enough electricity to run the AC)
  • Very empty right now, easy to get a space
  • Quiet

Cons:
  • Expensive if you don't golf. $40/night. When other less expensive parks aren't open, it's hard to pick and choose. I could have boondocked on BLM land, but didn't want to drive so far out of town for each night while visiting family.
  • Electric posts, water connections, and sewer connections are not laid out well. If you have a rig with all of these connections in the back, it will work well for you. If you have a long rig and your city and sewer connections are in the middle or towards the front, this won't work out well for you.
  • Their one way street system is laid out wrong for how they ask you to park in the spaces. No problem if the place is nearly empty like now, but if it were nearly full, it would be a challenge for many folks just to get parked.
  • Other park "residents" don't seem friendly (of course I could be wrong)

This is a good place to get some rest before jumping into SoCal, which is also what I'm using it for. I just think it's a little expensive for what you get, unless you love to golf, in which case it is probably a bargain for all the free golf you can play is included in the price.

We stayed their for a month last winter and had a fine time. The golf course was fun and very over price for what you get. Free would be priced right. Don't get me wrong though, I liked the place.

Last June we had to stay in Yuma for 4 nights and we chose the Rivers Edge RV Park in Winterhaven, CA, only 3 miles from the AZ/CA border. They had plenty of room as all the winter visitors had vamoosed. She gave us a back in site facing east with very tall shade trees on the west side (our rear) which was a gift from heaven since it was 118 deg at the peak of the day. I did take my awning shade drop and string it over the front of the coach to combat the morning sun and it worked well, our basement a/c kept up just fine. The cost was $27 p/night.

Try Fortuno De Oro and Caravan Oasis. They and others show open all year on Allstays.

Fortuno De Oro is open. They accept Passport America in the off season (now) for 50% off. I stayed there a few days a few weeks ago.

One of the reasons I went to Cocopah is because everyone that was still open was age restricted. I'm 46.
