We visited this place in the morning to avoid the heat. The park consists of a self-guided walking tour of the Quartermaster Depot adjoining the Colorado River. The Depot provided food, goods, supplies, and services to the military stationed in the Southwest. Goods were brought in by paddleboat and stored at the Depot. The self-guided tour takes you to the... More

I am having my wedding at this park in March and I have worked as a vendor at the farmers market they have in the Winter. It's a really beautiful park next to the river with a bunch of historic buildings and information. The visitors center is very nice and the staff is knowledgeable about the history of the depot....

The Quartermaster Historic Park is a perfect blend of well preserved history and many narrative stories that make sense of the beginning of Yuma, AZ. One would not think that there would be so much history in this small little town in the southwest corner (literally right on the border of CA and Mexico) of Arizona. For a visitors first... More

This part of the was very informative from a historical viewpoint. Never dreamed it was so important in the early west. Wetlands destroyed by dams are gradually being restored. Deep sea divers working under the Colorado River,,,who knew! Parents, take your children. We had allowed two days for Yuma, could easily have filled four days.

Enjoyed our vist. Posted after viewing the State Prison. Exhibits not as plentiful as the Prison in detailing actual life, but the living quarters were well done. Glad we visited.

For anyone who loves our earlier American history, this is a nice place to visit. The grounds are well kept and full of factual information. Lots of original structures, a railroad car, etc. There is a large building that houses old fire wagons and other vehicles that also contains several wall displays tools and equipment that would be better served...

So glad we stopped here. They have lots of history and displays that are well presented. The grounds are well kept up however you do have to walk a little. It was so worth our time and if you have never been make a point to go.

A great little State Park filled with the history of the Quartermaster Depot in the days of the U. S. Calvary and it's forts in Arizona. Lots to see in 2 or 3 hours and admission is very reasonable.

We went during a Farmers Market (not much of a Farmers market) but we did get in for free that day and that made it worth it. Some neat history to see.

You may have visited at the end of the Farmers Market season - at the end of the season there are fewer vendors. The Farmers Market runs October - March. General admission is $4.00 - hopefully not too expensive. Thank you for visiting our park! More
