This is the 2nd year in a row that we have visited friends at Palm Creek. Last year we were told by Management that they would have Wi-Fi for 2011. NO, they have a computer room that is open limited hours. This park is very large, beautiful grounds, golf course tennis, pickle ball. RV sites are close, make sure you line up the front of your RV with everyone else in line or the MARSHAL will speak to you. For us its too big and impersonal, total population during the "season" is close to 3000 people. My biggest concern is why tell me your going to have Wi-Fi when you don't have plans on putting it in place? At $43 a night I expect Wi-Fi or at least a computer room open 24/7. We will not be returning.
What can you add. We spent 2 weeks here. This is the best value in Yuma. $19.95 a night special. Most folks are here for the season. Very friendly. Definably a 6 star resort. Great Library, Computer room, Pool and hot tubs. The only draw back is the Wi-Fi is a bit slow at times. We will be back next year, close to Losalgodnes for your dental work.
We stayed here on Thanksgiving weekend, on our way south. It was busy with residents using there ATV's, lots of places to ride. The Wi-Fi was not working when we arrive. We informed the manager and she was all over the service provider. No CATV but good antenna reception. Great night sky's for star gazing. Great overnight rate. We would stay here again.
Well run and maintained park with older residents. There was a new pickle ball court and 2 tennis courts with indoor /outdoor carpet. Nice clean pool. The only issues we found were the park is on the flight path of Tucson International Airport. The commercial flights were not bothersome, but the military also uses the airspace for their training runs. We were here for a week, and they flew several times a day, every day, flight of 2- 4 F-16's. I love the sound of freedom as well as the next person, but it got old after the 2nd day. Would not return here for the $44 a day price.
Older park with some full time residents in older trailers. Quite a bit of traffic in and out. Expensive for a one night, pull through site by the front security gate. A landscape crew came by after we got set up and were relaxing with a cold beverage and asked if they could "trim" one of the trees at the site. We said sure. Then they bring out the CHAINSAWS and started "trimming" with sawdust blowing all over us and the RV. Our fault, should have said come back tomorrow. Would not stay here again.
As of July 2010 The Palm Creek no longer has free internet at the site. Service is available on a monthly basis after you purchase a modem. There is free internet available in a common area open limited hours. The Management is working on installing park wide Wi-Fi. The $42 rate reflects buy one week get one free. This is more of a destination, long term park. All of the park model homes are newer and show pride of ownership. The sites are gravel with a patio slab and two Palm trees each site. Remember this is Arizona, not a lot of grass and shade trees in the desert. Its well maintained and plenty of activities to keep you busy (or not), it is a 55 and over park. We would stay here again (after they fix the Wi-Fi).
$25 with the Good Sam discount. It was very dry when we stayed here so the roads were dusty but most the people were considerate and drove slow. Very quite at night, except for the coyotes! The men's restroom was very clean but only has one stall. They have propane which was very reasonable. Make sure to fuel up in Baker City, limited choices locally.
It is a very nice park on the river. We stayed here 3 nights. The park is full of cottonwood trees which provide lots of shade and were in full bloom with seeds blowing everywhere. (which would be ok if i wasn't allergic to them.) The park is adjacent to the highway and there is a bit of traffic noise during the day which quiets down around 8 pm. There is helpful knowledgeable staff. We would stay here again before or after the cottonwoods finish their bloom!
We stayed here 3 nights, as the previous reviewer stated it does get cozy as there is only a 10 foot wide strip of bark between you and the next RV. It is well maintained and the office staff is very helpful. The WIFI signal was weak inside our trailer as we had a very large coach blocking the signal, it worked well out side on the picnic table.
