Located in the Fortuna Foothills, this park was formerly named Schechert Family Fitness Center and was acquired by new ownership in March of 2018. The RV park sits behind the fitness center and is currently a large open space with 50 sites. The new owners have plans to update the park in the near future by lowering the number of sites in order to widen them. The gym is available to RV guests by purchasing a key card that allows entrance to the facility 24 hours a day. (When we were there the fee was $10 and will work for future years of staying there.) In addition to workout equipment, the gym also offers dance classes, yoga, cardio and has large showers in the restrooms, an outdoor heated pool and a hot tub. All of which are including with the purchase of the key card and RV rent. The employees have always been super friendly and keep the facilities very clean. While a little nondescript in appearance, the park offers much by way of the gym, classes, pool and hot tub. And I'm sure the new owners will be working on the aesthetics of the RV park in the near future. We camped at Desert River Spa & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are several restaurants, a Frys Grocery store and Walmart only a few miles away. We've also enjoyed making the short trip into Yuma to browse the weekend marketplace and swap meets. Plus the Mexican border town of Los Algodones is just 30 minutes away.

We stayed a month at Schechert family RV, in a motor home. The washrooms weren't very clean, the staff was polite, but they didn't seem to do very much, possibly because they have to sit and watch the gym, but usually there were two of them. There is great wifi, but no laundry facilities, we took our laundry to a laundromat in Foothills. It is close to shopping and a nice area of town. Although the streets were noisy with sirens at night. YOU camp in a gravel parking lot with a cement pad. There is enough room to park your tow vehicle. The pool was often cold and people complained. Hot tub was cool some days and extra hot other days. There were also a lot of bees, we tried feeding humming birds and ended up with a whole bee hive, I think. Some people in the lot were friendly enough, but many kept to themselves. We camped at Desert River Spa & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The RV park is close to shopping. We went for several nice walks in the area. The park is close to the desert so many off road buggies went by. If you have one it's a great place to camp. You could lift weights in the gym or take a class for free. Use any of the gym equipment.
