“Beautiful..RV's make sure you come in west, not south”

Reviewed Jan 19, 2018

Overall Rating

A wonderful spot.. luckily we came in from the west from yuma.. the road south has about 6-7 low hanging trees we pushed through without damage but not recommended. The road from the west is rough.. had to drive 15mph for 4 miles in. We had a 27ft rig. Bigger rigs might have a tough time getting around. But a beautiful sp... more

“Nice little pond”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2017

Overall Rating

I like this place although a little crowded. Camping along the pond, so places have low branches, SW side but doable. Good pond to 'Yak in. Fish stocked so it's a fishing from shore pond. Great sunsets.

“Unusual little lake (pond) stop”

Reviewed Jan 27, 2017

Overall Rating

A great way to get out of the RV city of Yuma if you've had enough of the commercial side of things. Or seemingly an oasis for fisherman or bird watchers. Quite friendly, a little busy but it seems in Snowbird season there would always be room for one more. Access is through the agricultural roads so can be a little rough but not horri... more

“Lovely pond packed with snowbirds...”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2016

Overall Rating

Someone's generator hums in the distance. A small campfire in the sand keeps me company as there is little other sound save for the occasional airplane soaring overhead. Or maybe it's a helicopter. Or I-8 headed to Yuma about 15 minutes away. A pond separates us from the rest of the RVs parked here. The road in was dirt and bumpy, ... more

“My preferred place in the Yuma area”

Reviewed Nov 05, 2015

Overall Rating

The larger your rig the less happy you'll probably be at Fortuna Pond—and probably the more annoyed others will be with you. Fortuna Pond is the antithesis of an RV park, which there are a ton of around Yuma, if that's your thing. That's what makes Fortuna Pond appealing to me (besides being free). I want to be in nature, not in a park... more

“Relatively Quiet”

Reviewed Jan 01, 2015

Overall Rating

Don't expect a solitary experience here. Dirt agricultural road to the pond and then potholed dirt drive around the pond. Rigs park around the edges of the pond, kept from getting too close to the edges by fencing. Some sites would have good solar potential and a couple have reasonable seclusion. Some traffic daily with people coming t... more
