Things to do in Yuma

  • Tumco Historic Mining Town Tumco Historic Mining Town Yuma, Arizona
    Tumco, a whisper in the wind, was a small town just over the border from Yuma, Arizona, into California, which once was a thriving, gold mining town. Now, decades later, and with not much left of the buildings or other signs of life that was part of the wild times that were had here, it is dead. You can find it easily enough, on the east corner of Imperial County and close to Yuma, but most of the original buildings and mining equipment has gone with the wind. It is terribly hot in the summer months here, so the best time to visit is in the fall or winter. The town's name Tumco, is just an acronym for the Union Mining Company which took over the mining process from the Golden Cross Mill and Mining Company in 1910. At one time, at its height, the town had a population of 3200, with murders, saloons and a red light district. It wasn't the best place to live, or die, but it was jumping in its heyday. The cemetery is still there with its old and occasionally new grave markers, as is the rusted vats of where the cyanide was kept to help separate the gold from the ore. There were many buildings in the town, with the grocery store run by Charly Sam, a Chinese immigrant, and the Stingaree Saloon owned and operated by the local constable Billy Horan; as well as a fire department, dance hall, and the saloons and other establishments that helped take the workers pay. The remains of the mill can be seen by its foundation and beer bottles and cans that litter the area. An old antique dealer came there in 2008, and found a bottle from 1920. The gold was found in 1853, and some think that the Spanish were mining the area before that. But the established mine in the mysterious Cargo Muchacho Mountains is steeped in legend and not much recorded history. The tall tales of great treasures still are heard in various areas, but only whispers and jokes about the usual tales that come from an area that is gone and lost. One was the story about a railroad worker named Pete Walters who had found some mica schist full of gold and prospectors started coming here in the 1880s. The town started as a tent city in 1884, called Gold Rock Camp, and by the 1890s had become Hedges after the VP of the Golden Cross Mill and Mining Company. It went bankrupt and then Tumco took it over. There are other sights out here, that will pique your curiosity, including the California Registered Historical Landmark 182, placed on a stone obelisk and old wooden crosses spread throughout the area. It is some 25 miles north of Yuma, just over the state line. Water for the town was piped in from the Colorado River, but the heat just beat the workers down, and anyone else that was crazy enough to come here in the summer. A hotel was never built, since most people that lived here had a shack or shanty made of wood or stone; and if you didn't come here to work, then you probably shouldn't have come. Another version of this story is that when Hedges had made enough money he sold the mine to the condensed milk king, Borden, who created the United Mining Company and the town's new name. The mine finally ran out in 1909, and everyone started drifting away since the only reason the town existed was the mine and work in related businesses. It started its quick decay after that, with every grave in the cemetery marked, but not with any names or information, just that a grave was located there. Another story has it that the area was being mined over 300 years before it became known as Tumco or Hedges, with many times that the mine was flush, then busted. The Spaniards started moving north from Sonora, and one night, two young boys entered their camp with shirts full of gold ore. The "loaded boys" were called muchachos cargadas in Spanish and thus the name of the nearby mountains were born. Soon there were many small mines run by the Mexicans. In 1877, the Southern Pacific Railroad finished a line from Yuma to Los Angeles as part of its transcontinental route, and since it passed through the mountains workers heard of the mines and soon people were coming here in hopes of getting rich. Once the first claims were placed, the bigger mining companies came in and bought them out, and further developed the mines. It is said that the wooden pipes bringing in water from the Colorado were pumping up to 100,000 gallons of water every day. The railroad brought in the wood timbers to shore up the walls and ceilings of the mines, and homes for the workers. Over 200,000 ounces of gold was mined and it was great while it lasted. Now it seems that in 1995, another company called the American Girl Mining Joint Venture has restarted operations there since the value of gold has continued to rise. It isn't surprising that many of these old mines that were thought to have been played out are now being reconsidered because of the tremendous value that gold has attained.

  • Cibola National Wildlife Refuge
    The refuge is on the floodplain of the lower Colorado River and is encompassed by magnificent desert ridges and washes that has created a mecca for all creatures that need the water to live. The historic Colorado River channel is included in the refuge, as well as the channels that were built in the late 1960s. There are numerous backwater areas that have become a home to all the animals, birds, reptiles and other creatures that live here; although the temperatures can reach 120 degrees in the summer months with only two inches of rain each year. There is great fishing here for the anglers among you with carp, sunfish, smallmouth bass, tilapia, striped bass, crappie, catfish both channel and flathead.

The refuge has a great vehicle tour that will give you plenty of chances to photograph the wildlife mentioned above, as well as beautiful panoramic scenes that are prevalent only in the southwestern parts of the United States.

  • Imperial National Wildlife RefugeImperial National Wildlife Refuge Yuma, Arizona
    Over 15,000 acres of pristine wilderness is preserved in the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge near Yuma, Arizona, along the last 30 miles of the Colorado River before it goes into Mexico. The slow moving river and the many wetlands that surround it have created a wonderful oasis that sharply contrasts the desert and mountains that run alongside the river. This wilderness area is protected by law so that nature, not people should be the main influence on the area. It was started in 1941, so that migratory birds and native wildlife would have a safe haven to live and breed. The marvelous wildlife is most plentiful during the winter months, when the beautiful and exotic birds like the cinnamon teal and northern pintail arrive in the refuge. During the summer, many common birds like the egrets and muskrats take over the area, while black tailed jackrabbits, mule deer, bighorn sheep and western whiptail lizards come to seek water. Many decades ago, the river was lined with many willow and cottonwood trees, that were kept going by the frequent flooding along the banks, but as time went by and man moved west, wild fires, woodcutting and dams have all but devastated the forests. These magnificent tree stands were perfect for the breeding, shade, resting and feeding of many birds and animals, but they have migrated or hibernated and come out into the hot heat only when necessary. One, the southwestern willow flycatcher is now endangered because of the loss of their trees. Today the park's staff, along with other governmental agencies are trying to regrow the willows and cottonwoods so that nature can recreate the mecca that once thrived here. Birds are brought here in the winter so that they can live and breed while the weather is more conducive and the very infrequent rain makes the days sunny and balmy. There are numerous roads to travel through here looking for beautiful scenes to photograph, like the Painted Desert Trail, or the Ironwood, Smoke Tree and Mesquite Points that will give you some spectacular views of the Colorado River Valley.

  •  Kofa National Wildlife Refuge
    The Kofa Refuge was created in 1939 so that the desert bighorn sheep could be protected, and it is located northeast of Yuma, Arizona on over 665,000 acres of the Sonoran Desert. There are many sloping hills and sharp peaks in the rough terrain and very few waterholes that still bring in the birds and keep the plant life growing. The Kofa name comes from the old gold mine that was here at one time, the King of Arizona, which operated from 1897 until 1910. It was in 1936, that the Arizona Boy Scouts started a state wide campaign to save the awesome bighorn sheep and the making of Kofa. Frederick Russell Burnham, also called the father of scouting, was a well known conservationist who enlisted the aid of George F. Miller, executive scout leader of the council in Phoenix to help save the less than 150 bighorn sheep left in the state. Burnham was very interested in saving the sheep because they were majestic and sturdy animals that thrived in diverse conditions and may be the key to saving domesticated sheep from any virus that might arise. Other important people from the state also became involved in the project and soon a poster contest was started in schools throughout the state. Burnham gave out prizes and showcased the posters in store front windows all around the state. The contest winner created a bighorn emblem that was soon put on the scouts neckerchief slides and given to over 10,000 boy scouts. Soon the Audubon Society, the Izaak Walton League and National Wildlife Federation was helping. In January of 1939, some 1.5 million acres of land in the Kofa and Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge were saved for future generations and the home of the bighorn sheep. That same year, in the spring, Burnham made the dedication speech for the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and now the desert bighorn sheep is the official mascot for the boy scouts of Arizona. Today, over 1000 desert bighorn sheep run the hills and mountains of the refuge, mostly in the Kofa Mountains and the Castle Dome Mountains that are located in northern Yuma county and southern La Paz county. The mountains aren't that high, but they are so rugged and rise so quickly that the natural habitat is perfect for the bighorn sheep to thrive. The herd that lives here has helped to create herds elsewhere in the state and other states that had the majestic creatures many years ago. Other fantastic wildlife that can be found in the area is the kit fox and desert tortoise, with birds like the orange-crowned warbler, whitewinged dove, phainopepla, northern flicker, American kestrel, Say's phoebe and cactus wren. Some years ago, mountain lions began living in the refuge and it is an exciting time for all that visit this spectacular refuge.

  • Lower Colorado River Lower Colorado River Yuma, Arizona
    The lower Colorado River separates two great deserts in the southwestern parts of the United States, the Mojave Desert in California and the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. The Colorado River is the fifth largest river in the country and flows from the great Rocky Mountains to the gulf of California, draining the vast amounts of water that fall or melt along its route. It drains the entire state of Arizona, and slowly flows into Mexico after passing Yuma, Arizona, where the Gila River drains into it. There are multiple agencies that manage the areas around the river as it flows south from the Rockies, and has created some of the most magnificent geological sights in this country. One of the most spectacular is the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona and many other beautiful rock formations throughout its trek to the ocean. More than 20 dams have been constructed on the river, and sources have figured that of the possible 9.5 million horsepower, only a fifth has been developed. The Moreles Diversion Dam is the southern most dam on the river, and is on the Mexican Arizona border, in fact, it is the border for some 17 miles. The flow of water along this river has diminished over the last century as the dams have been built which have cause the river to slow down to a stream as it nears the Mexican border. Many canals have taken water from the river to irrigate the thousands of acres along its route and the majority of these lands would not have been well off if not for the river's drain off. The lower Colorado River is part of an ecological conservation program that was started in 1994 because of the endangerment of four big river fish; the Colorado River squawfish, humpback chub, razorback sucker and bonytail chub.

  • Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park
    This site was once the storehouse of the U.S. Army for military supplies that would go to Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Nevada army posts. Five buildings remain of what once was constructed here, with four of them containing displays about the history of the depot and the history of the Bureau of Reclamation's building of the main irrigation projects that occurred in the early 1900s around Yuma, Arizona. The park is found in the larger Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area, that strives to save, enhance and interpret the cultural and natural resources of the region. There are many exhibits, a visitor center, videos, restrooms, gift shop and picnic area. The depot would always carry a six months supply of food, ammo and clothing for the areas mentioned above, and were brought in by ships coming to California and going around the Baja peninsula and up to Port Isabel near the mouth of the Colorado River. The supplies were then transferred to steamers that would travel the river up to Yuma. There was a stone reservoir nearby where they were unloaded and brought up a track going from the river docks to the storehouse center. Afterwards, they were sent north by pack mules or river steamers. At one time, the depot housed some 900 mules and teamsters to take car of them. When the Southern Pacific Railroad arrived in 1877 in Yuma, it was the end for the needed depot and Fort Yuma. The railroad went to Tucson in 1880, and the duties of the depot were moved to Fort Lowell in Tucson. In 1875, a telegraph and weather station had been built by the Signal Corps, and while the supply depot and all the pumps, equipment and steam engines moved to Fort Lowell, the signal corps stayed in Yuma until 1891. The U.S. Weather Service was taken away from the signal corps and stayed at the depot until 1949. The co's quarters were given to the U.S. Customs Service in 1908, and the remaining buildings were used by the Bureau of Reclamation, Yuma County Water Users Association, Boundary Commission and the Assistance League of Yuma, during the 20th century.

  • Saihati Camel Breeding Saihati Camel Breeding Yuma, Arizona
    If you are interested in a really unique opportunity to visit something out of the norm, then consider the camel breeding farm in Yuma, Arizona. Here is a genuine working farm that raises Arabian one-hump camels, as well as other exotic birds and animals. The camels are known as dromedaries and come from central Asia originally; whereas the two-humped camels come from the same area, they are called Bactrian camels. They store fat in those humps so that they don't go hungry when they can't find food. They can live a long time without water, many days when it is hot, and weeks when the weather is cooler and they can eat green plants. While most humans and animals can continue living with a loss of 10 to 12 percent of their bodily water, camels can go up to losing 40% of their water without loss of life. It is the flat feet of the camels that allow them to travel the desert sands so well and they have long eye lashes that keep the sand from blowing into their eyes. These one-hump camels don't spit their cuds when bothered, only the two-humped and llamas do that, and their babies are born without any humps. Other marvelous creatures that live and thrive here are emus, fallow deer, ostrich, Arabian wild cats, Sicilian miniature donkeys, bobwhite quail, golden pheasants, mandarin ducks, African spurred turtle, four-horned sheep, zeedonk, Arabian horses, silkie chickens, Transylvanian naked necks or turkens, Barbados sheep, Patagonian cavys, coati mundis, English bantams, Pharaoh quail, ring-necked pheasants and Chinese pheasants. School groups are more than welcome, as well as other groups or tours.

  • Yuma River TubingYuma River Tubing Yuma, Arizona
    For a good time call the Yuma River Tubing company and take a lazy float down the river. The river is the Colorado River, the lower part to be exact, and you are shuttled to whichever launch point you choose, and the rest is up to you. The longest float is about 5 miles and goes from the joining of the Gila River to the Colorado, and is great, as well as exciting. Their 2.5 mile ride is about 3 hours long, although they all depend on the flow of the Colorado or if you decide to stop. There is also a "happy hour" float that goes from the ocean to ocean bridge or a mile, and you will just relax and enjoy the soothing qualities of the float. They also have tubes for sale if you want one to keep, or just rent one for the great ride along the river water that is so awesome in the summer heat. The season usually runs from April 1st to the end of October, but it all depends on the weather, the water and if people want to float. Whatever your reasons, or if you have never tried, this is the place to start and see if floating along in a tube is for you. There are many places all around the country that have tubing and some are more exciting than others, so it is best to try a calmer environment than to start out with a gorging rapid that will put you in the weeds or water more often than you would like. Try it, you'll like it.
