Yuma Attractions

Advantageous visitors have a unique opportunity to take on Yuma’s impeccable outdoors in countless ways. Lovers of the land can take on miles and miles of hiking trails and camping sites, while those who want a dip in the Yuma River can water tube or fish in the Imperial Dam.

Wherever you turn in Yuma, you will always find a possibility for an outdoor adventure. The Imperial Dam, along with multiple national wildlife refuges, showcase jaw dropping views of the mountains in the near distance over the glossy blue rivers that run through them. The Imperial Sand Dunes may offer a familiar view, as it is the scene where multiple scenes of Star Wars were shot.

For 500 acres of remarkable wetland area, take a stroll from downtown over to the Yuma East Wetlands. Full of majestic wildlife, including over 300 species of birds, this extraordinary spot leaves many of its visitors in awe. This set up makes for a perfect hike, stroll, or animal watch during the day.

You can find miles upon miles of accessible water on the Colorado River for classic water tubing. This water is also commonly used for fishing, as several different types of bass and additional well renowned fresh water fish call it home. This combination of lakes and various channels continuing upstream make for a successful outing for any fisherman. Popular spots include the Imperial Dam, which contains both Senator Wash Reservoir and Squaw Lake, and Imperial National Refuge, which holes Martinez and Ferguson Lake while meeting with the Colorado River.
