Very very small sites, we tried three before we could find one where we could open both slides. Over an hour of frustration, we only stayed because our friends had already set up. The noise at night from both the trains and planes kept us awake. The one good point was that the staff and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Even the camp hosts are in very tight spaces. Would not return. - Luvingit

Very I mean VERY narrow sites, the camp host had us manoevering for 5 minutes to squeeze between the concrete pad, the water spigot and a tree and we cleared the spigot by 6" when we finished but the branch of the tree was hard up against the side of the rig.
Clean place and very friendly staff. The laundry requires that you buy a $2 card with add ons in $5 increments. There is a $4 a day "Resort Fee" which Encore thinks it's entitled to.
We were meeting up with friends here otherwise I think we might have looked elsewhere. - Brian n Barbara

We bought their Quartziste Special" in the big tent and came for a few days, to see, and leave if unhappy. We're now in our 3rd week, because our experience has exceeded any and all expectations. The Manager and her staff are friendly, available, and very helpful. Though the sites are small, there are mature trees, concrete pads, and firm gravel; i.e. no dirt or mud.
Today, I make reservations to return next February for a month. What stronger recommendation could there be. This Park has a very friendly clientele who return year-after-year. With on-going friendships, they take active role in organizing events, trips, dinners, in and around the park. As first-timer, we were warmly welcomed within 10 minutes, invited for coffee, and included in many events. Best we've ever found in 9 years of RVing - and We'll Return!!
Note - this is Passport America rate which is usually Not honored during Jan - Mar. However this year, with 30% fewer Canadians coming due to currency, most RV Parks are offering specials like honoring Passport America. - jwalk77

The most amenities of any other RV park. Friendly people and staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Has 30 and 50 amp power, and sewer connections. You will love this park! - Pat48

This is a large park. The sites are tight but doable. I am in a 43 foot Class A. The Park was clean and well maintained and has an indoor and outdoor pool and hot tub. Tennis and pickle ball courts etc. However, I paid $1850 for 3 months (Jan, Feb, March) in advance. In February both of my parents passed away. I inquired about a pro-rated refund and was told that they do not give refunds, even for a death in the family. Fortunately, my family decided to have the funerals in the summer so everyone could attend and I did not have to leave. I know many parks have a no refund policy, but a death in the family is always an exception. Additionally I was told about all the great activities they have there and was given a double sided activity schedule. Almost every activity I tried to go to (volleyball, camera club, computer club etc) did not happen. Their activity Office advised me that all activities are put on by guests that are staying in the park who volunteer and they have no control if they don't show up. Sun Vista is advertising these activities which is a fraud if Sun Vista is not responsible for putting them on. Another problem - it was advertised that there would be a Friday night fish fry. I got to the club house at 6:15 and was told that the fish fry ended at 6PM because it is a 55+ Park. How can a dinner on a Friday night end so early? Yes, some eat early but others do not. There was also a pool party at the outside swimming pool and they were charging for the hot dogs. Paying over $650 a month I would think they could give you a free hot dog. I also went to the 4PM Happy Hour. You bring you own alcohol. I got there and was told that there was a $5 charge. I asked for what since I brought my own alcohol. I was told it was the cost to use the chair. I would never go back here and be "nickeled and dimed" to death, with very few activities actually taking place and a no refund policy with no exception for a death in the family. - TXTiger

This was our first time to Yuma and Sun Vista and we love it. The park is very nice and very clean. The people here are quite friendly. There are so many activities here it is hard to chose what to do each day. The laundry facilities are very nice and very large as well as the most reasonable I have come across in quite some time. The is even a place to hang your laundry on a clothesline! There is a very nice dog park with lots of grass to run and play and a smaller one just for business! Lots of RV spaces, there are pull throughs and easy access for big rigs. This park is VERY secure and seems to be the one with the most going on. 2 large lovely pools, one in and one out as well as 2 hot tubs. Cant say enough about how much we are enjoying our stay. Definitely worth checking out. We even bought a park model here because it is great! - CandiceM

This is our 2nd stay during March of 2018. Liked this quiet park very much. Very friendly staff and nicely maintained. No pickle ball but enjoyable though smallish pool. Big pet walking area on the backside of the park which is where we stayed. Really liked that the park is on the North side of I-8 which made it quieter and much less traffic. Getting in and out of the park was very easy. Very reasonable annual site fee if one wanted to stay for the entire season. Will be back next year. We stayed free with our Trails Collection membership. - Specracer47

The rate shown is without any discount and does include a "resort fee" of $3/night. Very nice campground with level, back-in sites. Wide interior roads make backing in to your site easy. Campground hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. While there is little traffic noise, you will hear trains...unavoidable in southern Arizona. Cactus Gardens is convenient to shopping and sightseeing. We would definitely stay here again. - Dale & Ray O'Donnell

Nice, comfortable park. We were here after most snow-birds hit the road, so it wasn't crowded. Very friendly staff, great pool and hot tub. Shade trees at each site, but need to grow a little more. The Wi-Fi is in the library and is available till 8:30 p.m. The laundry room is clean but you must fill a card up to use. Makes it a bit inconvenient if the office is closed. We were close to everything in Yuma as well as Algodones in Mexico. We would stay here again. We were here a week. - KomfortTravelers

A very large 55+ gated park in a great location to explore Yuma. There are 453 lots, which are a mix of small, very attractive casita style homes and back-in rv spaces (no pull throughs). Sites are FHU with cable, gravel and spacious with a large concrete sitting area but no picnic table. Check-in was a breeze, with information packet provided (complete with key cards for gate/common areas and mailbox key) and escort to your site. We stayed in site 313, a corner site which had open space on one side and behind us, making it feel more private. Our site was positioned so that the rig gave us shade all afternoon (sites across from us had full sun), so keep that in mind and refer to the park map when booking. Some sites have obstacles such as power posts and/or light posts at the front making backing in a challenge. Nice desert landscaping with a few trees, but the park is mostly open with no shade. Wonderful amenities including two pools, two hot tubs, putting green, shuffleboard area, pickleball courts, library, fitness room, large billiard room, several dog parks, outdoor bar and even a small restaurant that delivers to your site! Tons of planned activities, including live bands/concerts, pool parties, chef prepared dinners, etc. Eight private unisex toilet/shower suites which were large and cleaned daily, with additional bathrooms/showers next to the main building (but all might require a bike ride to get to depending on where your site is located). Trash pickup at site twice per week. Internet provided but we didn't use. Utilities worked well, and Verizon signal was very strong. Intermittent noise from the nearby military base, a train (but no horns), and construction noise. Friendly staff and regular patrols by security. Price reflects buy one month get one free deal for new guests, plus electricity. This was the nicest resort we have stayed at and can't wait to return! - RVIN 24-7

Called and asked about pull through - young lady said no problem plenty of room. When we got here no pull throughs period. Wish they would have been honest. Nice place. Another issue is they advertise affiliated with Good Sam but no discount and are not actually a Good Sam Park per the same young lady. When I ask why it showed Good Sam on RV Park Reviews using Rvtripwizard, she said it got you here didn't it. Didn't like that. - Fred Gagne

We stayed here for 6 months starting 11/1/17 and took advantage of their first timers discount of 6 months for the 3 month rate. This is the nicest RV resort we have ever stayed in. The sites are spacious with a paved patio, the grounds are immaculate, tons of things to do, a restaurant and bar poolside, designated lap pool plus large pebbletec play pool, barbecues every other weekend with bands, concerts...just a spectacular place. We will definitely stay again for the winter months! - Budmobile

As others have said, this park is not in the fanciest part of town but don't hold that against the park. Manager and owner are extremely friendly and helpful. She escorted us to the site and made sure we were good to go before she left. We were able to leave the dolly next to the RV and park across the road in front of the site. Most people park in the road in front of their rig so be aware of that. Only complaint I have is that there are roosters and chickens next door and they start making a bunch of noise around 4:30 every morning we were there. - akeller156

This park came as a pleasant surprise and only $15 PA even during peak season where other parks would not offer any discounts, charging much more. We felt safe here even though it's located in an older section of Yuma. The hostess was pleasant and very helpful. Our back-in space had ample side room and a concrete patio, with a few orange trees to boot. Wi-fi was fast and AT&T cell worked well. The park is older, but certainly acceptable and our choice when staying in Yuma. - Syncro

My wife and I traveled to Yuma, Arizona to receive dental work in Algodones, Mexico the first week in March. The R.V. park is hard to find, but the owners gave good directions. I requested a pull through space, but they were full. The back in space would have accommodated our 36 foot 5th wheel, however a pull through opened up and the owner moved our space prior to our arrival.
The park was very clean, quiet and well shaded. Everyone was very friendly and the owners were very nice. There were plenty of activities if you cared to join in. We had only planned to stay 5 days, but ended up staying 11 due to dental work taking longer. The owners were very nice about it. Great value for $26.00. - Jerry O

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

VERY restrictive pet policy which is not explained at reservation or check-in, in fact buried on page 39 of "rules" book. A lot of seniors RVers would have difficulty with the restrictions, no one shows you where the park is, it is just in the corner and you will need to get a key for the gate, In addition they park short-termers(1 month or less) in a no pet area. There is a no refund policy so you are stuck. Not making the park PET friendly as it would seem when pets box is checked in the summary of offerings of the park. The restrooms and showers are also offered however this area is closed at 9 PM not to open until 8 AM the next morning. This is also the only restroom and shower offering in the park, therefore only part time offering. - Rocky Healey

Older park, but clean and well-maintained. I can't say the same for the neighborhood in which it is located - pretty seedy. They do lock the gate at night, and advise residents to lock up bikes so they don't "change ownership." Customer service was very friendly and helpful. The office is not always open, but if you call, someone will come very soon. Great laundry room. Wifi available, but only with an antenna - if you don't have one, you will probably have to schlep over to the community center. Very friendly local residents. Walmart neighborhood market right next door. Overnight sites are VERY tight. I was able to get in and get my slide out, but couldn't have opened the awning, both because of trees and the proximity of neighbors. If you have slides on both sides, you will have trouble with some of the sites there. I had to leave my shades drawn for the entire stay, because the windows of the RV next to me were so close. Utilities worked well. An older review mentioned cable; there is no cable provided. - KAP99

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
Feb 2016 - $33.00
Very friendly and clean RV park. The pool and hot tub were great, and the showers and restroom were clean but dated. All the residents, both full time and transient, were welcoming. On the downside, the airport and a military flying facility are very near-by. Moreover, the wifi hardly worked. - Atnt Life Grand

Very friendly residents. You can get as "involved" as you choose, or not. Pool was clean, residents friendly, everyone helpful. We have been there twice in 4 years...and will happily go again! - Rusty Quilter
Dec 2013 - $33.00
I spent two nights here because we were passing through to CA. I am grateful for that because it is the high season and most parks are filled with seasonal renters and offer no overnighters. The worst part is that the sites are tight. Not only that but the seasonals stake out every square inch of "their" plot with sheds, fencing, ATVs, membrane garages and what not. I tried backing in my 40 footer and had a hell of a time. Other than that, very clean, quiet, and plenty of fruit they share, and places to walk the dog. - scarpacci

Beautiful park with friendly management and staff. Best activities anywhere including weekly dances, diners, poker room, happy hours, breakfasts, etc. Not a new park but kept very clean. - Bern - Fort Sask
Mar 2016 - $45.00
This place is horrendous. They look after their regulars and treat newcomers like garbage. Overpriced, rude and low value are things that come to mind. This place is sandwiched between the interstate and the busiest railway line. All night traffic and train horns. Do yourself a huge favour and move on.
Lot spacing is very close with sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel. - RV Dog

They guide you to you site, which is handy, but indicate the precise location of your rig. We unhooked as directed and when we found the sewer dump hidden by some gravel, realized we did not have a long enough sewer hose. We have camped in great many campsite with our current arrangement, but needed to hook up to truck again and move our rig back 2 feet. - cameo31
