Have a wander around the Depot and find out about the origins of the army base here. There is also a very good presentation of the water management of the Colorado River. From here you can... More

We happened to come here on a special day for a civil war reenactment so there was a $6. Fee to go in. But it was nice place and most of the building are well preserved. Because of the battle you had to use the perimeter walks to go between things but all in all I would recommend this. The... More

If you are in Yuma, be sure to take the kids up here for an hour of fun. It is adjacent to the Territorial Prison and is well worth the visit. Also, the little cafe has good eats!

Although we didn't take time to tour the depot, we took advantage of the visitor information and bike trails.

This was a great place to visit. We especially enjoyed learning about the Colorado River and what has happened to it over the years.

There are some historical displays, but there's not much to this park — maybe worth a 30-minute visit. The best part is the display of old trucks.

Super convenient to I-8, or as people in L.A. say, "the I-8". Nice to walk around outside and stretch your legs. Inside interesting history.

I had visited this park as a child and thought it might be fun to check it once more time. Yes, it is well worth an adult visit. Lots of history at this corner of the state, not just the prison but harking back to when the Colorado River was still navigable. Very interesting.
