This is great little park - out of the way - a really good place to lay low and do lots of nothing. The place changed hands and the promise of renovations and upgrade. Truth be told it does need some work. Some of the roads are really beaten. The spa/pool was nice but the bathroom could use some upgrading. I had a corner site so almost a private parking spot for my truck. Mgmt was great - hard working guy who was very friendly and helpful. Will keep it in mind when going back . We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

On the outskirts of DHS and a good 15 miles to Palm Springs - Plenty to do in PS - check out the Cable Car - Most important - secure your awning- lots of wind there

A good location to stay a few nights - close to town and also to Palm Springs. No remarkable amenities but they have a club house and a 24-hour hot springs pool. The spaces are a bit cramped and we had to park a ways from our spot. Lots of permanent residents here, too. The staff and neighbors were friendly and helpful. The "pull-through" spot was situated where we could pull IN but not OUT - we had to back out but there was plenty of room for that. A pretty simple place for a base camp which was what we needed. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is close to Palm Springs so there is a LOT to do within a few minutes. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway was a plus. The Palm Springs Air Museum was pretty great as well.

Hard park for me to rate. Many people seem very happy here--not us. Assuming people love the spring-fed pool and hot tub. Both looked too grunge for me to use. We had planned on staying a month--moved to Palm Springs after a week--preferred the new park and the surrounding area by far. Roads through park were paved--paved years ago--pavement also non existent in places. Many junky permanent rigs dominate the park. Manager very friendly and accommodating, but can't make up for the fact that he's trying to operate on a shoestring budget. He needed to trim the hedge next to our rig so we could extend our one slide. The bathrooms and laundry room are old and tired. Located 4 or 5 miles from Desert Hot Springs. Just felt like there was nothing happening here. So glad we left early. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

SUPER friendly manager! There's a spring fed pool and spa that feel great but are pretty grubby. Lots of permanent residents with junky spots but also lots of in and out. Gated community with great mountain views. Wifi only worked in the clubhouse. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed only one month, this park is really run down and in need of serious improvement, pool is very old as is hot tub, clubhouse needs paint, roads are old run down asphalt with chuck holes all over, dog run is a rv storage lot, no grass. Sites are sand and are roomy. There are no activities here, alot of old run down permanent mobile homes and rv's. I was very surprised that they wont read the meter until your hooked up and ready to go, I've been all over and never have I seen that. Ask allot of questions, power seemed high to me.

Small park with excellent management makes for a joy! We got here in October 2015 and liked is so well we are staying until May 2017.

The mineral hot springs are the big draw with the pool kept at 92 and hot tub around 101. Perfect in the winter. Great views and close to everything. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a older park but and the management takes really good care of the property. We loved that the park is gated and smaller then some of the other parks we stayed in. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has so much wild life which we enjoyed seeing after being from a big city, and the sunset was just beautiful from our site.

This is a small, old park dating back likely to pre-1980s in the middle of nowhere. The one lane road in from the highway warns you what is ahead. They have dirt and deteriorating asphalt roads with tight turns and desert gravel sites. The power was 113-volts and the park was basically empty. Water pressure was equally weak. This is a winter retreat for people escaping the cold in the north. The park is full of dated 5th wheels, park models and mobile homes, some of which might be as old as the park.. The sites are narrow, separated by some bushes and just long enough to park a 40' rig. I looked at the pool because it was 105-degrees, but it did not appear a healthy choice. The park advertises Passport America off season at $25, but there is an added $10 if you happen to be 50-amp. We would not recommend this park even if Good Sam and AAA will. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had called many parks in the Desert hot springs area looking for a space for a night, but we wouldn't be in the area until after dark and this was the only park that would accommodate us. Being new to this life style the manager was more then helpful getting us set up once we got to the park. I would recommend this park to all my family and friends.

They raise the rent to help upgrade the park but have yet to see any upgrades. Wi-Fi was available when we first got there but now there is no Wi-Fi. Water goes off randomly anywhere from minutes to a day or more. Electric is outrageous as you pay more for park fees than the actual electric usage. They do have a wonderful pool and mineral spa. It works for a night or so, after that the problems will be plentiful. They do have a dog park but mine ended up with kennel cough as the area is not cleaned up.

The worst we have seen, especially for the money and, cash only. Very old, small and tight. Our 40' hung over onto the very poor pavement. Very tight spaces and if host hadn't helped, we would not have been able to get into our space. The website claims they have cable TV, but they don't. Redeeming factor is their Wi-Fi, it is the best we have seen in past few months. Mostly permanent or very long term tenants. Didn't know they had a spa or pool until after we left, and happened to see that on their website. Won't be back, especially due to the price. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gated park, not new but relaxed, quiet atmosphere. It is a bit hard to find as the gate is a block or two down a small side road. We loved the warm swimming pool and hot Jacuzzi open all hours. In winter there are no crowds though the park is often nearly full with long-term residents. It's very quiet and friendly. A large fenced area is provided for pet exercise. A good stop on the way south to Palm Springs or the deserts in winter. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a work in progress since the management is fairly new and the park needed a lot of improvement. We came to this park in Sept. 2011 due to my husband having temporary employment in the area. We fell in love with it quickly. The management is great, the natural hot springs pool and spa are at the right temperature to be enjoyed at any time of the day or evening. The laundry, restrooms, and showers are kept clean. There is a nice sunny clubhouse where they have Wednesday coffees, happy hours, and lovely dinners for the tenants during the holidays. We loved it so much that we bought a trailer and paid yearly lot rent so that we can enjoy our retirement years here and be a part of this wonderful community park. The people are very friendly and helpful with information on the area's sites. I would recommend this park to anyone wanting to stay 1 night or longer. More than likely you will decide to extend your stay. We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
