We met many nice people, we saw some cute donkeys, a mom and baby too. Our girls were delighted. There were many places to climb. Beautiful country side. We had a cool January day.

Given the closure of the prison, had to justify to the family the Yuma drive. Entrance fee was cheap, I'd say the attractions kept the family entertained for about 1 hour (the heat effected the rest of my crew), but my young kids quickly grew bored. Worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood - and have some time to... More

not exactly Disneyland, or anything remotely like it. you'll drive through a kind of older run down neighborhood to get there, one street over in either direction and you may end up using the forced neighborhood valet service, or being offered a variety of pharmaceuticals for purchase. kids would probably rather grab a fishing pole and try their luck in...

A quaint, small park along the Colorado River. It's a quiet spot for walking or biking. Pretty views and a nice place for a calm little stroll.

I went there because it is a visitor center or at least that was what I thought! Anyway I enjoyed my visit with my hubby! Lots of things to see, souvenirs to buy. Friendly staff that helped me to get to the Coronado house. The visitor center is well run and the little museum is full of artifacts and information.... More

Well maintained historic attraction. They have rotating attractions and displays to keep it fresh. The kids had a great time roaming over the property.

We had such a great time strolling the grounds of this historic site and imagining what it must have been like about 100 years ago in this area of Arizona.

We were pleased with the tour thru the site and the gift shop was different from most. Probably would not do it again, since we learned all about it in a hour or so.

Once being the major supply post in the area we thought it would be a much larger exhibit. There are several restored historic buildings to walk through and see old pictures, memorabilia, and they have it set up as what it would have looked like back then. Even stopping in every building and reading everything it didn't take us long... More

The now named "Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park" gave some fascinating history about the Yuma area. I especially enjoyed the exhibit that explained how the All American Canal was built including seeing the diving suit used since I live close a tributary of this canal. The story of the plank road to traverse the Algodones Dunes shows the lengths... More
