Lazy Coyote RV Village

Lazy Coyote RV Village

The Lazy Coyote RV Village is located in Wellton, Arizona, near the city of Yuma. It has 88 spaces available for guests to rent, with 84 of those spaces being short-term reservations. Each unit comes with 30 or 50 amp full hookups. Some of the spaces are pull-through, while others are back in. Many people stay at the property because it is near Mexico and the city of Algodones. Though the park is open to all visitors, it primarily serves older couples who are 55 years old and older. The current owners of the park wish to help guests who stay with them feel “like they are wanted” when they are on the property.

About

Located near the city of Yuma, Arizona, and near the Mexican border is the Lazy Coyote RV Village. The property is on ten acres of land and has a total of 88 spaces that can be reserved by guests. Four of those spaces are for long-term residents, while the other 84 are for short-term stays. All of the sites have full hookups, with the majority of them using 30 and 50 amp hookups. Some of the units are pull-through with other spaces requiring that the RVs be backed into them. Each of the spaces has a paved patio where guests can set up chairs to sit in.

There are a variety of amenities that are offered to guests over the course of their stay. Coin-operated laundry can be found in one of the buildings on the premises. Showers are available for free to guests and are found with the bathrooms in the same building as the laundry. The park also provides guests with open access to the clubhouse, which serves as one of two main gathering places on the property. The clubhouse offers guests the use of an exercise room, a kitchen, and a library that also has puzzles and games that can be checked out. In the central area of the clubhouse, visitors will find a pool table and a dartboard that is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Behind the clubhouse, there is a space for horseshoes. The other gathering area on the property is the gazebo near the middle of the park. Events put on by the park are occasionally hosted there.

Near the property, there are several attractions that guests can visit during their stay. In the city of Yuma, visitors can learn more about the history of the area by visiting the Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park and the Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park. For guests desiring more recreational activities, there are golf courses near the park, such as the Coyote Wash Golf Course, that is open to the public. Yuma also has a variety of casinos that guests can explore. For guests seeking places to eat, the owners recommend they try the restaurant at the Coyote Wash Golf Course or Geronimo’s Mexican Dining close to the property.

Culture

The managers of the Lazy Coyote RV Village want their guests to feel welcome to the park and the amenities provided. One owner says, “I don’t want them to feel like they are an inconvenience.” The manager mentions that guest interaction is important and that they strive to put forth the effort to interact with guests on a daily basis to check in with them. They will also host events to encourage the people staying at the park to get to know each other, such as potluck dinners in the property’s gazebo.

Many of the guests who stay at the Lazy Coyote are older couples. The property is primarily a 55 and older park. For all guests, the owners ask that they observe some important rules and policies over the course of their stay. One of the biggest policies has to do with pets, which are allowed on the property but must be limited to two pets per site. Additionally, they must be on a leash and must be cleaned up after. There is a dog park across the street where patrons can take their pets as well. Some other policies to note include the park’s quiet time, which starts at 10:00 PM, that there is no smoking allowed in the buildings, and that guests’ RVs must be newer than 15 years old.

While the RV park is open year-round, the busiest season of operation usually occurs between April and October. Some of the people who will visit the park are there to experience the warmer temperatures the region is known for. Others stay there because of its proximity to Mexico and the city of Algodones, which is known for having a high concentration of dentists which the guests will visit for treatment. A majority of the people who stay at the Lazy Coyote are repeat guests.

A number of reviews have been given by people who have stayed at the park. Many reviews mention the small-town atmosphere. When talking about the area, one guest said, “It is convenient to Yuma, without being right in town, and is only 15 minutes from the Foothills. Wellton is a town that has the necessities, such as a grocery store, hardware store, gas stations, Family Dollar, Mexican restaurant, etc.”

History

The current manager of the property has been in the hospitality industry for almost 20 years. The property was purchased in January of 2022 and the manager mentions that she enjoys being able to get to know people and help them over the course of their stays. The owners have plans to continue hosting events for guests in the future by adding a bingo night to the roster of activities for patrons in addition to the potluck dinners.
