We've only been "snowbirding" for two seasons now. After bugging out of Phoenix the first year, we headed to Yuma. After a one night stay in a dump of a place we landed at "Westwind RV & Golf resort". It's a bit more money than others, but we are still exploring other possibilities. Very clean, well kept grounds and building and more activities than we could keep up with. We would be there right now if our fridge water filter hadn't burst and flooded our home. Stuck here over seeing the restoration.

You can stay shoulder to shoulder in an RV resort anywhere in the country. I prefer to take advantage of the unique boondocking opportunities available in the wide open desert surrounding the city of Yuma. Either in 14 day free areas like along American Girl Mine Rd. on the California side or staying in the Imperial Dam and Senator Wash LTVAs with access to water, dump and trash dumpsters ($40 every 2 weeks). There's plenty of room to be as close or as far away from your neighbors as you (or they) want.

Hard to recommend anything this year. I know a number of people who stay at Fortuna de Sol. We stayed there a week last year, and we had though about staying the month of February this year. We didn’t though because so many of the activities are so restricted due to COVID. in a normal year they have exercise programs, a ton of activities, and specialized craft rooms for things like woodworking and quilting.

Thanks for that info! I will try it the next time I go to Yuma now that I have my generator working. Here is the website.

I will then also have a couple of new 100AH lithium batteries. I will be all set for boondocking. I will also check into adding a bit more solar. Perhaps outside the RV so I can add to what I already have up on the roof (only 80 watts worth).

It's only 18 miles to the free EV charge station in Yuma at the city hall. Perfect for my small electric motorcycle, so I don't have to use my generator to keep it charged up.

You're welcome, Tom. Senator Wash is but one of 10 LTVAs in the lower Colorado River area. Four are just south of Quartzsite, the other 6 are scattered around both sides of the Colorado River.

Long-Term Visitor Area (LTVA) - MAP | Bureau of Land Management

A single permit lets you stay at as many as you want. $40 for two weeks (renewable) or $180 for the 6 month season.

There's also lots and lots of 14 day free areas without any services. Pack it in, pack it out.
