I enjoyed walking around the grounds, seeing the history and learning about the various dams, the transportation and irrigation of the area. It was very interesting to see the history of the uniforms and the items utilized during that time period. Great shade and water fountains in many areas so even on a hot day, you should be okay.

The visitor center is at the Park, and I spoke with a delightful woman about Yuma, and the history of the Park. There was a Special Olympics event that was being hosted at the same time, and it was nice to see how the community uses the park. The buildings are in excellent condition, and I enjoyed the visit.

This Park was worth the time it took to visit it. I was educated on not only the history of depot, but the water history of the Colorado River. The desk person was informative and since they were not busy, it was nice that she took the time to explain some of the history. I wished they had more signage... More

Details on the Colorado's riverboat era are really interesting. We probably spent an hour to an hour and half looking at the various exhibits and shopping in the excellent bookstore. The Quartermaster Depot has plenty of parking for RVs, shady spots to sit, good, clean restrooms, and a pie shop although that is not always open.

We've been to Yuma many times but not stopped at this park. We stopped yesterday and were amazed at the wonderful information they had on the area and additionally the park itself is a historic site. It has plenty of parking and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. If you're in Yuma and don't know what to do, stop... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I hope next time you are in Yuma you visit the historic section of the park you will be in for a treat! Also thank you for your comments on our bike trail - it is truly a great gateway to the river! More

Yuma has some very nice parks that follow the Colorado River. They are all connected and you can walk for miles. I saw very little litter, graffiti, and most of the people seemed normal enough. Lots of families out enjoying the sunshine.

If you are in Yuma it is worth a stop. Lots of old buildings to explore. Well layer out grounds. If you go to their website "Yuma Quartermaster state historical park" it will show you a map. Self guided tour. Friendly & helpful staff. The building also houses a large travel centre where you can find magazines & leaflets all... More

Imagine yourself in the past, a new land, no dams on the Colorado River, spring flooding, unbearable summer heat. The exhibits are interesting but lacking in depth, still well worth a visit.
