Your Pet is Welcome
It is not necessary to disguise your dog for a stay at the Fiesta RV Resort. Pets are part of your family and they are welcome here. There’s just a few rules that we have to make your stay and that of the other residents more comfortable.
As one of the hottest locations in the country, it’s important that you keep your pet cool and well-hydrated. Scorching pavements, relentless sun, and other hot hazards are present everywhere. The region is classified as having a low-desert arid climate with temperatures regularly exceeding 100°F in the summer.
There are also many deserty critters that can seriously injure or even kill your pet. Arizona has some of the most venomous insects and animals in the country, so please be vigilant.
We do not restrict animals based on their breed at the RV Resort. For as many bad and hyped stories in the news about particular breeds attacking and injuring people, there are 100 owners of that same breed that have trained a loving, gentle animal.
We do, however, impose a 50 pound maximum weight limit on animals. There may be minor exceptions to this; check with the office on your situation. Some very large dogs can be the friendliest, but just their sheer weight is enough to knock a person down by accident or in an attempt to be friendly. We have many older residents here that are frail and can be severely injured in this way.
Please register your pets at the front desk when you check in. There is no fee and a maximum of two (2) pets per site, regardless of the type of accommodation you have. If you’re an existing resident, go to the front desk to register your pets to your lot.
Animal Access Areas
In general, you can walk your pet in most areas of the resort. However, we ask that you abide by the rules and follow the posted signage about where your pet(s) are allowed and where they are not. We also ask that you clean up his or her poop.
There are also open areas around the resort outside the gates for you to walk your pet. You can also check out this website called Bring Fido for dog parks and activities in the area.
A note of caution. Bullhead City is a low-desert community with many of the typical, and sometimes venomous, critters that come with the territory. While the likelihood of encountering one of these poisonous wild things is low, it’s best to be aware at all times.
Most wild critters won’t bother you, they would rather get away. It is very important that you know how to control your pet and get them out of harm’s way should that be necessary. Many pets can react unpredictably to our wildlife.
Less visible but also potentially threatening to your pet are predatory birds and the large and small insects that inhabit this region. Most birds like hawks, owls, and falcons will not attempt to attack an animal, especially walking with a person, but you should know that they are here.
Insects such as scorpions, Africanized bees, tarantulas, centipedes, black widow spiders, blister beetles, and conenose bugs are also all around us, but you will likely not encounter them unless you are in more remote and rugged areas. Even then these critters would rather avoid than confront, but your pet may have other intentions.
In a phrase, BE AWARE and BE PREPARED.
We are located in Bullhead City, Arizona and all residents are bound by the city’s animal control laws. If your pet causes a problem, an Animal Control Officer from Bullhead City may investigate, and can issue fines.

Pets ownership in the resort is governed by our official regulations. You can download and read those regulations here, and you’ll also be given a hard copy at check-in.
Resort Common Areas
Please do not bring your pet into the common areas of the resort. Even though Bella the Great Dane is right at home enjoying sun and water, she cannot do that at the Fiesta RV Resort.
Be especially vigilant around our older residents that can be easily knocked over by a happy, friendly pet. We want everyone to enjoy the resort without fear, and some people are just spooked by an animal.
Bella is adorable and was a good sport sitting nicely for this picture.
Codified Resort Rules and Regulations
You will receive a copy of the current Fiesta RV Resort Rules and Regulations when you check in. You can download that document HERE. Those regulations are binding on you during your stay, and this section on our website is provided to highlight some of those rules.
The intent of our pet rules and regulations is to provide for a peaceful, respectful, and enjoyable environment for all residents of the resort. Understand that some residents may be terrified or simply averse to animals, while others cannot get enough of petting and talking to your animal. Both are valid positions, as is everything in between.
Our rules have been made to support all of that and we ask you (and require you) to understand these regulations while you are here. Egregious violations of these rules, especially if physical harm occurs, is grounds for immediate eviction from the resort plus any fines or citations that Bullhead City animal control may impose.
Important Pet Definition
For the purposes of your rental agreement with us, a “pet” is defined as a dog or a cat. Except for small birds or fish, no other animals are permitted. Sorry, as domesticated as your pet pig or jaguar might be, they are not allowed in the resort. Also not allowed are any exotic animals including, but not limited to, bunnies, rabbits, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, tarantulas, kinkajous, capybaras, fennec foxes, chinchillas, servals, tigers, chimpanzees, monkees, wallabys, sugar gliders, raccoons and javelinas.
- All pets must be registered at check-in.
- 50-pound maximum for each pet.
- At most, two (2) pets per registered site.
- Pets may not be left unattended.
- You must walk your pet on a leash.
- No pets in the common areas.
- Immediately pick up pet poop.
- Visitors may not bring in pets.
- No breeding of animals in the resort.
- Pets must be spayed or neutered.
Common areas include the swimming pool area bounded by the walls, fence, and clubhouse, the laundry room, the mailbox area, inside of the clubhouse, and all other recreation areas.
Exceptions can be made to the codified rules, especially to accommodate residents with special needs or service animals. Check with the office for exceptions.
Revocation or Eviction
Privilege to keep an animal in the resort can be revoked, or tenant eviction can occur for any of these reasons:
- Violation of any of the pet rules.
- Barking, growling, snarling, crying, howling, and other noises.
- Out-of-control or negative behavior that creates a nuisance or fear.
- A pet that attacks another pet or any person that is in the resort.
The Final Word on Pets
As a member of your family, your pet is welcome here at the Fiesta RV Resort. As a condition of that welcome, your pet must be a good citizen of our community and add to the enjoyment of everyone around you.
As a resident of the resort, whether temporary or long term, your execution of the rental agreement automatically binds you to the laws of Bullhead City and, in particular, the Animal Control Laws that you can review HERE on their website.
Again, should there be a serious issue concerning the behavior of your pet where another pet or person is injured, you are subject to fines and other penalties that may be levied by the Animal Control Officer from Bullhead City in addition to revocation of privileges or eviction.
