Trails running east and west parallel each other so it's easy to loop around on different trails. The trail next to the road is paved. The others are hard packed dirt. One follows close to the river. Another runs along a ridge. The paved trail continues east for a couple of miles to East Wetlands Park which remains in a more natural state.
The parking lots are large enough for RVs.

Parking on the base is very limited and too small for RVs. Preferred parking on the base is $40 and general parking is free with shuttle service to and from the parking lot to the show entrance. Entry is by vehicle only and adults must have some type of photo ID.
Many people chose to park in the Yuma County Fairgrounds parking lot instead of going to the base. The planes fly directly over the parking lot and there's a good view of the runways. Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos. Of course the ground displays are not visible from the fairgrounds lot but everything else is including the demonstration of the USMC F-35B as it hovers, and takes off and lands vertically.

The area is almost level and the ground is very hard packed sandy dirt which makes it an excellent boondocking area for campers using wheelchairs.
The roads are dirt and one lane but they're in very good condition. Many large and level clearings provide access for any size RV and are great for people who want to camp together. We camped about 1/2 mile off of Route 85. The roads deteriorate a bit farther in but it's possible to find fairly isolated sites by driving past the 1/2 mile mark. Gunsight Wash 32.24068, -112.76128
