Foothill Village RV Resort is an age-qualified (55+) Encore Resort located in scenic Yuma, Arizona. There are 171 full hook-up sites at Foothill Village. There seemed to be a few seasonal/full-time residents here but not as many as the other Encore Parks in the area.

Normally Foothill Village is under the Trails Collection part of a Thousand Trails Membership as are all the Yuma Encore Resorts. But with Covid going on ELS has made Foothill Village a regular Thousand Trails Park and waived the age qualifications giving access to all members.
As a Thousand Trails Member, you have access to this park for free. At this time we don’t know if Foothill Village will remain a regular Thousand Trails Park or return to being on the Trails Collection.

Foothill Village is a small no-frills park with full hookups. While I wouldn’t consider it a resort the park is clean and well-kept. Sites are gravel with a small patio. There is adequate room between sites and from what we saw can fit most big rigs. More The sites have no landscaping, no picnic tables, no BBQ, or fire ring which seems to be the norm for what we’ve seen in Yuma.
There is a small heated pool and hot tub, pool hall, and rec room closed due to Covid. Water and power were good but only 30 amp available. It’s easy to get into the park and get around all sites are back in. While the freeway is close, the road noise is minimal and better than Araby Acres that we previously reviewed.
We stayed at Foothill Village February 14-22, 2021. The staff we dealt with was friendly and willing to help in whatever way they could. If back in Yuma Foothill Village would be on our list of possible places to stay.
For a “Resort” Foothill Village lacks a lot of amenities you’d find in more upscale resorts but it does have the primary things you’d want from a campground. The staff is very friendly and helpful with any questions you may have.
The restrooms were clean and well taken care of when I checked them out.
Laundry rooms are located in the Main Building near the main office. The cost to wash was $1.75 and the cost to dry was $1.75. You do need to purchase a card from the vending machine for $5. The card purchased then has a credit of $3 on it to use and add more money to. We’ve found that the card works at all the Arizona parks we’ve been to. But the card we purchased at a Thousand Trails Park in California didn’t work here.
- Dog Park
There really isn’t a dog park per se. They do have a gravel area that runs the length of the front of the park for walking dogs. It’s not an off-leash area.
There is a very small lounge area with a TV in the main office building.
A small but nice heated pool and spa are available in the park.
- Phone and Internet Service
We use T-Mobile for our phone service. Service at Araby Acres was OK with 3 to 4 bars of 4G service.
Our Verizon MiFi received 2-3 bars of service and we were able to use our Fire Stick and stream Netflix with no problems.
- Mail/Package Service
We didn’t use any mail service while we were in town on this trip. But did see mailboxes at the main office building so mail service may be available. Check with management.
- Sports, Recreation, and Playground Areas
This is normally a 55+ age-qualified community so there are no kids activities. There are shuffleboards, pool tables, and horseshoe pits.
