Very I mean VERY narrow sites, the camp host had us manoevering for 5 minutes to squeeze between the concrete pad, the water spigot and a tree and we cleared the spigot by 6" when we finished but the branch of the tree was hard up against the side of the rig.
Clean place and very friendly staff. The laundry requires that you buy a $2 card with add ons in $5 increments. There is a $4 a day "Resort Fee" which Encore thinks it's entitled to.
We were meeting up with friends here otherwise I think we might have looked elsewhere. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We bought their Quartziste Special" in the big tent and came for a few days, to see, and leave if unhappy. We're now in our 3rd week, because our experience has exceeded any and all expectations. The Manager and her staff are friendly, available, and very helpful. Though the sites are small, there are mature trees, concrete pads, and firm gravel; i.e. no dirt or mud.

Today, I make reservations to return next February for a month. What stronger recommendation could there be. This Park has a very friendly clientele who return year-after-year. With on-going friendships, they take active role in organizing events, trips, dinners, in and around the park. As first-timer, we were warmly welcomed within 10 minutes, invited for coffee, and included in many events. Best we've ever found in 9 years of RVing - and We'll Return!!

Note - this is Passport America rate which is usually Not honored during Jan - Mar. However this year, with 30% fewer Canadians coming due to currency, most RV Parks are offering specials like honoring Passport America. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Had a Thousand Trails discount so it was a month for 459.00 PLUS electric. Electric was expensive, we left early, staying 22 days, and electric was just shy of $50.00. The sites are close together and they have trees that have nasty sticky type droppings that covered the car and RV.

Friendly office people and they walk you to the space and park you. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The only negative about this park is the close proximity to the trains ...all night long! Ear plugs help.

Staff were nice but we were too busy to take advantage of any amenities. The trains were blessedly quiet at this location, just a rumble in the distance rather than whistles at all hours. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

If you don't mind train whistles all day and night and making sure your dog doesn't do its business on the wrong side of the dog run which is outside of the park by the way, then you won't mind this place. The staff is very nice but it doesn't make up for the issues mentioned above. I would never stay here again !!! We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects PPA. This is part of the Encore group and they do a wonderful job. We've stayed in Encore parks in FL and this was one of the best. It is predominately for snowbirds, with many park models, but they do keep some sites for transients. It was before most had returned for the winter and was very quiet. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and we never saw more than one other person in. Residents were very friendly and helpful; needed to do some fix-up and found a gentlemen who helped and used his extensive tool collection to make sure I got the job done right. Front desk was marvelous. Only problem is the front is closed on weekends. This became an issue on Sunday when we went to do laundry, inserted money to purchase debit card for machines, and it took the money but did not give a card. I called the general manager listed on the office door and she came within 10 minutes, got me a card and made sure I knew how to load money on it. Some of previously commented on narrow spaces; we did not experience that, even when a large rig pulled in next to us and put out slides. Would I have liked more room? Of course. But it's an RV park in a highly competitive area where each space represents income. It was not over crowded or confining. Biggest issue is the proximity to train tracks...these are very active tracks with frequent trains both day AND night and the required train whistles/horns. It can be jarring. This is the ONLY reason I gave them a 9; and it is not the fault of the park. Road noise is minimal, there is a Flying J only 2 miles away and plenty of RV repair facilities and shops close by. We would definitely come here again. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park, but no one is in the office on a Saturday afternoon, so make sure you know where to go ahead of time. We had a slight problem with our electric, and after I called them, they moved us pretty quickly as it was 109 outside. Only stayed one night. Would probably go back.

An older park, very many permanent residents. Staff could not have been friendlier or nicer. They gave us a site that had exactly what we needed. A little noise from the air base, but no freeway or train noise. We were here for dental work at Los Algodones; the park is convenient for that. A fine overnight park! Rate is Good Sam discount.

Clean and quiet, but very spooky because park is all snowbirds with about 5 overnight spots. Like a ghost town. Hosts were friendly, though, and pool was open. Please be advised that parks in this area lock their restrooms at night. All concrete and gravel. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Tent Trailer.

This park is close to Wal-Mart with lots of activities to keep you busy, but most folks come here year after year and do take ownership, but are very friendly folks. The only major reason I marked this park so low is they pack you in like sardines. Our mirrors on our motorhome are 3 inches from a tree and the ladies fence on the other side is touching our slide out (she had to pull it back for us to slide it out !!! It took over 20 minutes of maneuvering to get the motorhome in and we have only one slide. The outside lots aren't so bad. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a month hoping the management would be better than the previous winter. If anything it was worse. The manager and staff were rude and not interested if you weren't one of the prefered 'long term' people. The office staff told us our checkout day. When we checked out on that day, the manager charged us for an extra day. The staff hadn't told us the right day! The pool was lovely: it was the only thing that drew us back. Never again. The trains were awful and the traffic equally so. There were lots of noisy party people. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical 'big box' corporate-owned RV park, lined up parking lot style. In January, I bought a travel trailer from a resident in the park, including space rent through October. Desert Paradise RV, and the adjacent Cactus Gardens, both Encore Properties, recently began requiring 'background checks', but just for long term residents (6 months), not transient or seasonal rentals, which doesn't seem right. Apparently, I was suppose to fill this out before I even bought the trailer (I was still in Oregon), and the owners were supposed to get prior approval and inspection before they could advertise or sell their own property. Even though the office is demanding I make a decision about how long I plan to stay and pay them $50 to complete this "credit check", I plan to speak to an atty first, before I hand over any personal and financial info without any liability for privacy or security. Not on a prepaid site! Good points: both the park and people are nice, clean, friendly, surrounded by nice dog walks. The pool and spa are heavenly, lots of events, fwy noise is distant, but military aircraft are obnoxious at times, and the trains! Ugh! Relentless in my opinion! Many Canadians and snowbirds leave by March, and it gets a little more peaceful. I'm content for now, but will seek a smaller, locally-owned property, where you're treated like a neighbor, not a number. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate quoted Passport America. Campground host escorts you to site. Sites have hookups at the back which required an extension cord for electrical. Our concrete pad had a palm tree in front of it which required more attention backing into campsite. WIFI is Tengo a fee for service ISP. Cable TV service has only about 20 channels. The trains could be heard throughout the day and night. Did not hear any freeway traffic. We camped at Desert Paradise RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Packed with friendly seasonals and retirees. We got the last two spaces at the edge of this neat clean "village". We enjoyed an inexpensive breakfast with the "natives" in the community hall. And, got a lot of friendly "You're a long way from home" comments when the morning walkers saw our New York plates. Great place, nice people, I’d go back.
