At this resort "golf is free any day the sun doesn't shine," yet they rarely give away a round.

Nice and quiet. Been coming here for years. Things change over the years with different managers etc. Some good some not so much. Overall we have been very pleased with this resort. After reading some of the reviews I beg to differ. Watching people in their RVs trying to negotiate the One Way streets which are well marked I must comment. Before we bought a park model we had a long rig ( 55 ft overall ). No problems at all getting in and out of the park. Watching some people trying to get into a spot or around in the park makes you wonder why they are even allowed to be out on the open road. Then they write a really nasty review about the parks roads and spots. Maybe learning to properly operate your rig would be a start and taking responsibility for your own actions. The park generally has people available to guide you in. Use them. We travel extensively and this park is a great value for the money. You just can't please everyone all the time. Some people just see the negative things wherever they go. We will continue to enjoy the Cocopah for many more years. Cheers.

We stayed 6 days at the resort in March with family and had a great time. The resort is very clean and well maintained. Our family winters there very year and love the park and I can see why. The golf course is in excellent shape. The pool is clean and quite large. The grounds are beautiful and the weather is perfect. We are looking forward to going back next year.

If you like rows and rows of park models with very average spaces for RV's then this is the place for you. They certainly have something going for themselves because the park was near full but I don't see what the attraction is. There are hundreds of these boring, repetitive parks all throughout Arizona. Been there done that! No thanks!

Extenuating circumstances caused us to not make it to the resort. Our trip plan unfortunately had to change. There is a 0 (zero) refund policy. So they will now probably double dip on my canceled site. They offered to let me reuse my reservation for next year when I have no plans to be passing through the area. I'd be happy to have covered their credit card cost to cancel the reservation. If ever passing through Yuma again I'll definitely choose a different park. Sad when a business as large and broad as theirs takes advantage of a little old senior citizen!

While the sites at Cocopah RV & Golf resort are of generous size, you may very well end up with your neighbor’s rig right at your doorstep due to the location of the sewer connections. This facility requires a minimum of 2, 15 foot sewer hoses in order to connect to the sewage system, and sometimes 3 depending on the location of your sewer connection. They fail to tell you this when you register, and if you show up with only one, they will site you all the way to the rear of the site, which then places you at your neighbor’s doorstep. We are now into mid March, when most of the parks occupants start to head home, and there are a significant number of open spaces within the park. In my opinion, because we complained to the manager about the placement of RV’s so nearby our RV because of the parks failure to notify them of the hose length problem, most RV’s now coming into the park are placed next to us, and backed up as far as they can be. When the latest one came in today, and I complained to the park escort about how far back it was parked, I was told that some people request specific sites. I asked the folks who were placed in the site if they had requested that specific site, and was told that they did not. The park appears to be very reluctant to add this info to their website, for whatever reason. I also had a problem with a water connection at my site that I brought to the attention of the parks maintenance staff when we first arrived on late November. There was a significant leak from the compression fitting that connected the main line to the hose riser. The maintenance staff informed me that they would have to shut down the whole row in order to fix the leak, so instead, simply twisted the connection until the leak stopped. This worked fine until one day in January when I was disconnecting my water line in order to install the hose to flush my holding tanks. The line immediately separated I was forced to hold the copper line to the compression fitting until I could get my wife’s attention so she could bring a pair of channel lock pliers in order for me to fix the line. Numerous calls were made to the security staff, who told me that no one was available to fix the problem until the next day. If I hadn’t had the ability to fix this problem myself, there would have been quite a few sites flooded out due to the broken main line. The next morning, I finally had to call the security office because no one had showed up at my site to fix the leak. I was told that the message had not been passed on to the maintenance staff, but they would do it immediately, which they did, and the problem was solved quickly and correctly. There appears to be a great deal of politics played at this park, which we have been coming to since 2001. Rules are ignored if it is convenient. More prominent people are given preferential treatment, etc. The manager appears to be more of a used car salesman than a comprehensive, knowledgeable, in command leader, and simply stonewalls complaints in hopes that they just go away.

While my wife and I have enjoyed our winter visits to Yuma for many years, each year at Cocopah RV & Golf Resort appears to be a step backwards in both customer service and amenities, and because of this, we will never be returning here again.

As young "snow birds" we have felt very blessed to be able to travel. We homeschool our two children and decided to travel this area in 2011. We pull our brand new modest trailer down with our two kids ages 2 and 10 and begin our first month of holidays at this establishment. We felt the grounds were ok. However the problem was with the staff. We are very friendly and keep to ourselves. We are active, enjoying hiking, swimming and biking. We are neat and tidy and dress modestly. We aren't drinkers and act respectfully. About two weeks into our 1 month stay here the office staff appraoches us as we are in our trailer. She tells us our toys outside are very messy. I step outside with her and ask her how as the 3 toys we had were neatly tucked under the trailer. She goes on to tell me that living ina trailer is no life for our children. I said excuse me..She siad what kind of life are you giving these kids. I almost cried. I said a great one I thought. If we were home we'd be in -40 weather stuck in our house. As rumour had it we were from Texas instead of Canada which our plates clearly say. We live in our trailer and don't have a house. Your judging me. I am a a Assistant Mayor where I live and also self employed.I home school my children and am a leader at my church! I did report her to the office. Nothing was ever done about this problem. The neighbours had all seemed to know about this rumour. They were people like me travelling in their trailers. I am not sure how this thing started but we have never felt so unwanted in our lives. The people that stayed at this park also felt some sort of pride or entitlement to be on this cramped space. The monthly electric bill was also $140 and we hardly ran our a.c So I didn't even argue that one. Just paid it. However, we are blessed. Today we own our on vacation house in Mesa, Az. We are blessed!

When we arrived we were kept waiting in the lobby for at least 15 minutes while they decided to let us in. As it turns out they have a policy that you can't stay there if your moterhome is more than 10 years old. My husband was on the phone with them 3 times prier to making the reservation and not once was this policy mentioned. The only reason they let us stay was because they had already charged our credit card and didn't want to refund our money. in the cantina there is a sign on the wall that says something to the effect of "come in & have a drink & a good time but leave your complaints about the park at the door" which makes me think that they get a lot of complaints. The other campers that we talked to were very nice and made us feel welcome. They even enclose a piece of paper in with their welcome pkg. that says "Due to the number of guests that make reservations and then cancel part of their stay after they arrive, we no longer give refunds for any reason". It makes me wonder why so people cancel after they arrive. Well now I know. I would never stay here again.

We spent the winter of 2015-2016 here. The golf course is horrible, but the people who run and work in the pro shop and office are worst. The pro shop is controlled by a control freak. Instead of feeling welcome, I felt as if I was imposing on the staff.

The 'residents' run and control the golf shop. I was told I could not check in for an event the next day, when my friend was allowed to. Last night I tried to buy 2 large coins for the range. The clerk turned to the manager and asked if she was allowed to sell me 2 gold coins. The manager said no - I was only allowed to buy one coin for a small bucket and 1 for a large.

There are leagues every weekday and many weekend events, limiting open golf to afternoons only. Besides the leagues, there are many groups that play together after the leagues, further limiting open tee times. These groups are allowed to play 5-somes in one tee time, so they back the course up. They schedule 80 year old golfers 7 minutes apart. It is common to have 2-3 groups backed up on a tee.

But the course is another story. The tee boxes often do not face down the fairway. Many times I could hardly get my tee into the ground. The ground is so hard, I felt as if I was hitting off concrete. I often felt the vibration of hitting the ground with my irons up through my wrists. no need to worry about filling divots - you can rarely make one. there are no cart paths to speak of. The cart paths on 17 and 18 are rutted dirt tracks. There is no water available on the course. The greens are long, and slow. Many holes have high spots around the edges, making your ball roll off easily.

Besides the course issues, this is an ugly course. There is little landscaping, the only water is retention ponds, except for 18 that follows the river. I regularly saw a pack of 5 wild dogs. It is a tee it up and hit it straight course..... no challenges except to hit in the fairways.

I made the mistake of buying a membership, so I play here... I will not be back after this year.

We stayed here with a group of friends, we all have dogs, we were put in the section with all rv's who had dogs. We went to dinner one night came home and there was a note taped to the door from security that our dog barked, Our friends had the same thing happen.The next night our friends had four notes from different neighbors that were very rude and offensive, I would never stay there again. Also too many rules.

We spent 5 years at this resort and it was a nice place to be to play golf. However, after 3 years, things changed and not for the better. A chosen few could break any rule they wished, including the 10 year rule on unfit RVs. Loud drunken parties and abusive neighbors changed our entire attitude for this park. If you are a Canadian or a wannabe, this is the place for you because management supports these kinds of behavior..
