Located 29 miles east of Yuma, Arizona, the Town of Wellton, is a center for business, services, recreation, and a leisurely lifestyle. We are home to 2,882 people and countless winter and retired residents.
Surrounded by the Gila Mountains and local farms, the gorgeous sunrises each morning, the warmth, and sun-filled days, it is no wonder that folks have been coming to Wellton to rest and enjoy the town’s quiet setting. You’ll discover our friendly town is a safe haven for you and your family.
We have a rich western history stemming from our roots as a water stop for the railroad (hence Well Town – Wellton) and the Butterfield Stage Coach. You can learn more about our history.
We host several annual events like the Tractor Rodeo, Pioneer Days, an old fashioned 4th of July, Fishing Derby, and Tri-Valley Celebrations. With the growth of Wellton comes the growth of our town facilities. We’ve built a new Family Services Center that also hosts the medical clinic. The Butterfield Golf Course provides a leisurely game with the Gila Mountains and brilliant orange sunsets as a backdrop. The community pool with its large slide adds a respite for the hot, dry days during the summer. RV parks are abundant. You can plan your next winter visit here and find your RV rest stop.
In addition to our town, we are close to Yuma (the third fastest growing metropolitan area in the country), shopping, and history. We are approximately 2 ½ hours from Phoenix for the major league ballgame and 3 hours from San Diego for an ocean visit.
We invite you to learn more out about our little well town. Take your time and we look forward to your visit.
