When RVers are looking for what they want in a campground or RV resort, they look for hookups and amenities they need to fit into their lifestyle. In my opinion, one of the best sites for finding this information is RVLife and their handy app.
Once in the app, a page like this will pop up and from here you can see photos and reviews from other RVers, all the amenities, the gps coordinates, their website, and what kind of hookups are provided. Click on the website and the resort’s actual website will show more useful information like their address, photos, local attractions and more.
I guess we’ve been spoiled by how beautiful the resort at Picacho Peak is, because although this place has amenities we like, including golf, dog park, planned activities, heated swimming pool and hot tub, pickle ball courts, bocce ball and more, there is absolutely no decoration at our site. No cactus gardens, paved roads, palms and Palo Verde trees, or the gorgeous peak we wake up to every day. We are surrounded by mountains, but they are off in the distance-not their fault, but a short ten-minute drive is all it takes to drive through them. It’s sometimes dusty and kind of plain Jain but the people are wonderful here.
The office, activities center, pools, courts and dog park are centrally located, but not close to our site. The golf course is not part of the park, like I thought, but runs up to the resort. The resort is protected by a gate you need a code to enter, so that’s added security (which is nice) but you must drive out to go to the golf course. Another smaller course is across the freeway in Wellton, and another in The Foothills. Further still is the city of Yuma and they have some courses as well.
We went shopping in The Foothills today, got Dave’s oil changed in the Jeep, went to the hardware and grocery store, and stopped in a CBD shop for me to stock up on gummies. They even had Giraffe Nuts- which I’ve been wanting to try. Those are a CBD infused caramel candy. We also had lunch in a nice and reasonably priced Asian restaurant. They had the best cream cheese wontons! I had almond chicken and it was very good. Not in brown sauce like my beloved Haltom Chinese back home, yet tasty just the same. I want to say the ingredients were fresher and did not emit any off putting smell.
All in all, it’s great park with all the amenities and plenty of local attractions and we’ve had a very good day after what was a pretty rough night with Whiskey. I’ll be glad when my girls are back to normal, but that’s a story for another day. ☺️
