44 Parks near Cathedral City, California
Dec 2015 - $25.00
This old park has bad management that doesn't care about your experience. Shuffleboard unusable due to broken up rough concrete. "Pickleball court" has no fencing and broken concrete. "Dog park" does not exist. Pool was ok. Wi-fi included, but did not work and a source of complaint for everyone except those with their own internet service. Shower stalls had no bench & were old, not very clean and dangerously slippery when trying to dress. I tripped on an unlit speed bump at night and had a nasty fall. We liked the central location and the size of the sites, but the site sand was horribly dirty. Paid$750/mo incl tax. Met nice people, but will never go back. - C Lyttle

This was a nice park, but not a high end park. We travel with kids and dogs, and we were completely satisfied with our stay. Showers/bathrooms are okay, but clean. The pool and hot tub were awesome! Our lot was fairly flat even though it is a dirt lot. Lots of shade trees and shrubs between most lots. Friendly staff. - RVMom78
Dec 2014 - $13.00
The last reviews were from 2013 and we nearly didn't come based upon those. I am glad we changed our minds! Nice staff, very welcoming, clean park, nice pools and good free wifi. Central to Palm Springs activities. Full hook up for $13 RPI rate. We were even invited to a pizza party before we finished hooking up. Nice large sites. - John WD Smith

This campground is filled mostly with residential campers. The staff was very friendly, but none too efficient. Had to pay in cash as the don't accept credit cards. The bathroom/shower was bare-bones, not very clean, and lacked toilet paper. Water, electricity (30 amp), and sewer connections were all okay. The site was wide, with room for the RV, a concrete patio, and our car side-by-side. - DaveInOhio

I wish to warn anyone to make sure you speak to someone before you stay here-you may wind up with an unsatisfactory site. I wound up leaving early the next morning and going to the other RV park. I called two times to make a reservation and was not called back. I chose to go anyway due to its close proximity to the entrance to the the Joshua Tree National Monument. I thought if there was nothing available I would go to the other park. I pulled up to the office and asked if a space was available. She asked if I had an adapter as she only had a fifty amp space available at an empty mobile home lot. She told me I would need to unhook my truck as the road to the site was behind me and there was no place to turn around. I unhooked my truck and drove to the site and went back for my motor home. There were two very old trailers (not mobile homes) on either side of me with one having a lot of clutter around it. Turned out the sewer hookup would not fit my RV sewer hose and I was nervous about the electric hookup voltage since it was a mobile home hookup so I dry docked for the night at a bit more than dry dock price. One of the "neighbors" was noisy at night. I did see some nice RV sites at the front of the park; so my advice is to make sure you get a reservation for what you want before you go. On the other hand if you want stunning views and real quiet (this is in January) go to the other park. - nanzhere

We stayed here over New Year's 2005/2006. During the four nights we were there the bathrooms were not cleaned once. No TP, no soap, no towels. We would not stay here again. - march2397

We stayed in late June when temps were in the 110 range and the park was about 10% full. We were in the desert to visit family, not as a destination vacation this time of year. We were upgraded when we checked in to a back in site with lots of shade and grass. It was beautiful, and gave us some feeling of relief from the heat. Outside noise was not a problem as our A/C's ran 24/7, and trips to the pool were short and few. The bathrooms and gym look like they were just remodeled and are beautiful and clean. Internet was strong and fast. Dog friendly. Easy on/off freeway and close to just about anything you would want to do in the desert. Gate is locked at night and you are given a code so feels very safe. Utilities worked great. - barbielab

This is a very nice RV Park, however a few odds things I didn't understand. First the Very Good: the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I requested a site change after my first night's stay (too close to the trains) and was greeted by a VERY nice professional young lady who did what she could to accommodate my request. Considering it was the start of Memorial Day weekend with a full park, I was impressed with her attitude and personality. Nonetheless, very impressed with the service. The park is very clean and well kept, but the odd things I didn't understand, there were no picnic tables at any of the sites! Odd for a place in the desert where it is conducive to outdoor eating, we camped with friends and had to eat in chairs outside. The other odd thing was that the water sprinklers came on every night at 10 PM! No warning, each night people who were sitting outside enjoying the warm weekend weather went scrambling to secure their belongings when the water came on. What made this very strange was the fact that the water sprinklers came on again each night around 2 AM. Maybe their way of enforcing quiet time. The pool area along with workout room was very nice, great facility. - Damon campers
Apr 2016 - $70.00
Overpriced, noisy (from trains and street), short back-in space for our 38ft motorhome with 3 slides. Our tow just barely fit. Requested a QUIET, pull-through spot. Got a short, noisy back-in spot instead, with little shade and close quarters to our neighbor. We were in site #9, right over the wall from entrance and the "Frank Sinatra Drive speedway". No table.
No daily newspaper. Could not get one of the 3 main channels on cable during our stay.
Daily trash pickup at site was nice. Staff guided us to our site and helped with back-in. Small pool we didn't use.
This place appears to focus more on their abundant and lovely grounds maintenance than on their RV customer.
We stayed for 3-4 nights. Would not return. Very expensive park at $70 a day. - westie

Nice little park right off the freeway. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They assigned us a site against the back wall which is for smaller RV's and I asked (and was given) an interior site as I'm sensitive to noise. I'm glad I did, because even on the interior, I could hear some street noise at night and traffic sounds from the freeway. Everyone in the park is friendly with a lot of snow birds. Cable and wifi worked well, but the pool and jacuzzi were being worked on, so not heated. Our site #20 had a concrete slab, was nice and wide with a picnic table, shrubs on both sides and a small patch of grass. - CoachCathy

The only reason that this park did not get a 10 is because it isn't a luxury RV park. That said, we have stayed at plenty of places that are fancier but we have NEVER stayed at a park that cared more about your experience or put forward more of an effort to make you feel welcome. We checked in after hours but were still greeted and shown to our spot. Once in and set up we got a knock on our door. We were given freshly baked cookies with an apology that they weren't there sooner because the cookies had to cool. Are you kidding me?? How awesome is that? We were just there for one night as we passed through heading to Magic Mountain etc, but they treated us like we were VIP's. The bathrooms are clean and fully stocked with toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant etc. The spaces are flat, big and clean. The location is 2 minutes off of I-10 so it was a perfect spot to sleep for the night. If every RV park worked as hard as this place to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of their guests, RV'ing would be a perfect world! - longweekends

What a nice little RV resort. And I think it deserves to be called a resort. Very clean, great level cement slab sites, very nice pool and jacuzzi, and great staff. After we got set up one of the staff brought us doggie treats for our two dogs and warm fresh baked cookies for us. Very close to I10 but no real road noise. It was great for our one night stay, but we were really tempted to stay longer. Will definitely stay here any time we travel through PS, and we do often. - Roadrunner53

This is an extremely high end RV Resort. We stayed at a Gold Site by the Golf Course. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because they do not have WiFi. Not at all. These sites are all owned and they rent them out when the owners at not here, (the owners get some of the rental money). Our site was the best we have ever had. They had outside BBQ, Stove, Refrig, serving area, large patio table with 6 chairs, lounge chairs and more. Just beautiful. If you can afford it, this is a must do at least once. - RVpartyanimal
Nov 2015 - $105.00
This place is over priced for what you get. I get it, many of the folks here own their site and come and go as they please but in quiet times they rent out their sites. The park had many empty spaces in November and I suppose they get busier after Christmas.
We stayed 4 nights and found this place lacking on several fronts. We stayed in site 104, okay site but worth about 2/3rds of what they charge. Sewer smell....not good at all. On calm nights one would think a place of this caliber would have this under control. Not so. WiFi. Such a simple promise and such a simple service to deliver. It worked for about 2 hours on Monday morning. That's it. The front end promised that they called someone. Didn't work on Tuesday or Wednesday. The minute you check in they pre-authorize a $25 cleaning fee in the event you leave a drop of oil on the pad when you leave! The outdoor kitchen at our site was in sad shape, didn't use it.
If you want to pay the price, your call but plenty of options in the area which are better value....enjoy. - hrw

The park lots are owned by residents who have the option of renting the lots out through the management office, or directly to a renter. I was originally an owner who sold my lot due to what I perceived unscrupulous actions of the HOA Board and park management as applied to renters. If you rent directly from an owner, the park charges an additional $12 a day management fee.
Lot spacing is spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is concrete and features a picnic table. - flsts97

This is an unbelievable RV resort. Absolutely beautiful property with ALL of the amenities. We stayed during the off season and the resort was nearly deserted and 105 degrees during the day. We didn't mind though since we had the entire pool to ourselves. Since this was the off-season, the restaurant was closed and the pool area was dirty but the actual pool was clean. The fitness center, restrooms and remaining grounds were immaculate. - Tony ML

Awesome! Perhaps in the top five of all resorts in the country! Spacious lots. The sites are concrete. Features include picnic, patio, table. - Tucsonbenz

This is a beautiful resort with huge sites (no pull thrus). The sites are built around a small golf course and a man made lake. The club house is very nice, there are 3 pools, and tennis courts. All sites are individually owned and vary in how they have been improved. It is popular for snow birders and has the most luxury coaches we have ever seen with Provost and Newels being common!! The only down side is you pay extra for the internet, at this price that is strange. Will stay here again. - sjones

Large family-friendly park. A mixed-use park for sure. There were many permanent mobile homes, as well as long-stay trailers. There was a RV camp and a tent camp on opposite sides of the lake inlet. Camp 2 is where we stayed. We were originally given a spot in between two permanent homes, but we asked for a different spot in a more open area. We were reluctantly given the spot by a very unhelpful front-gate. The front-gate people were unfamiliar with the occupancy of their park and gave incorrect directions to our spot. The lake is fun, you can rent boats and fishing gear. The park is very peaceful at night. The roads are tight for a rig over 30ft. Will stay here again now that we know what lots to avoid. - ArnerJoey

Lake Hemet is a picturesque campground, but with a few problems: 1) Has very narrow camp access roads made backing into the site difficult. This was compounded by large boulders placed in front of each site. 2) Has lots of full time campers with semi-permanent set-ups, including storage sheds, porches, etc. This is not my cup of tea as it looked kind of shanty-town like. 3) It was surprisingly buggy, mostly at dusk. If you like fishing, folks were reporting good luck fishing the lake. Boat rentals are available. If you're into high tech, you'll be disappointed by the lack of cell coverage and Wi-Fi. If you can live without communications to the real world, and have a maneuverable rig, you may enjoy this campground. - Bigbit

This is local retreat for our family. Always nice to visit when we want to get away for a weekend retreat. Campground has just introduced online registrations. We were here in the Group Camping area: dry camping with some great shade trees. - Woods Family
Apr 2016 - $17.00
Price was excellent for what is offered. The only pool is good, thermal pools excellent. Park very well maintained for its age. Mini golf is toughest ever encountered and in need of renovation. Only one bath house for 300+ sites. Only 2 toilets in men's room. 2 pool tables are in fair condition. Park shuts down end of April so while we were staying there we no activities. This park is geared for seasonal seniors. Not really family or kid friendly. Staff excellent. Sites mostly level and larger than most, and many are 50 amp. No picnic tables. No store. Only a soda machine. No run down units on premises. - venice

We have stayed there 3 times this winter and it is a wonderful park, everything is very clean and well kept. Most of the staff are work campers and all we have dealt with are very friendly. The nightly fee through RPI is $15.00 per night plus a $3.00 per night resort fee. - mgalex

Old park, good for an overnighter, not a stay.
Dirt lots, no patios. Low-class. Lots of coming and going, noisy, no peace.
Inadequate amount of showers and washing machines for the amount of sites. Showers in disrepair, backing up.
Was it not for the discount off the regular rate, it would have been a total rip-off. So with the discount we only paid around $22 which is all the place was worth.
Some very friendly staff, some not so much.
No free wi-fi (seriously????) - RobertIsMyName

This is a very large resort. It is divided in half, which keeps the temporary RVers separate from the regular/long term residents. The RV sites are narrow and very close together. The grounds are well kept. Walking around the pool and lake area is very pleasant. After a day of driving, it was great to relax in the various hot pools. The pool area was well maintained. There is a code for the bathrooms/showers, which were clean and maintained. No complaints. Would stay again if in the area. Only issue was how crammed in everyone is. - 2togoNebraska

A quirky, fun place to relax. Our second time, so likely we'll go back as it's close for us. Hard to rate high because it's very old and a lot is original, plus their customer service has a lot to be desired. Spots are so narrow, many new larger RVs won't fit in the space between the concrete pad and electrical on the other side.
What we liked: Easy to get in, can pick your own spot, they drain the hot tubs every night so they don't use chemicals (though think they should not allow small kids in them, saw a few, ugh), just low key atmosphere and they don't seem to nit-pick. Sauna and steam rooms were nice and working, and grounds were pretty and spacious if you have a big group.
What we did not like: They won't allow ANY reservations for a specific spot or saving. It was important to our group to camp together for meal preps, kids, etc. and even after the first person arrived and offered to PAY for the other couple of spots, they would NOT allow any "saving" of spots in any way. Are they trying to be difficult and piss people off? We get that they don't want to start assigning spots and have to reserve, but why not let the first to arrive PAY and put things in that site so others realize it's taken? We'd hate to accidentally take a spot right between a group because we didn't know any better. Easy fix, but they seem stubborn and don't care. Only solution is everyone arrive at the same time, and that is not always possible.
We loved visiting the nearby (as in 10 min at most) Cabot's Pueblo Museum. Interesting, informative, and neat grounds. We were there 2 hours. Area has a lot of hiking, and the Palm Springs Tram would be fun to take up. - Dank

So many have raved about this place but we found it marginally acceptable. Sites are all gravel and not level. Tenters are allowed in any site so we were encircled by tenters, some of whom also slept in their cars. Showers were a mess. I question whether they were cleaned as often as advertised. Office staff were curt and did not seem to be responsible for anything other than the day use of the spa's. Dogs running around off leash. Price reflects a weeks stay, in retrospect a bad decision. We will never stay in this park again. - fivertug

Most people have already left for the season. We were allowed to find any spot that we wanted. Sandy level lots with concrete patios. Nice landscaping with hedges separating the sites. The pump for the pools and spas failed while we were there, so we were allowed to use the pools at their sister property and they were nicer ones than at Catalina. We also found out that Catalina Spa is in the process of being sold and new owners are taken over. DO NOT PAY FOR THEIR INTERNET. It is the worse I have ever used - well not used since connections dropped constantly. - akeller156

You have to pay for the WiFi, is not very good. The pools are a little older but nice, warm, clean and water from the hot springs, they have to cool it down, we loved it. Your site is a back-in, you are parked on sand and some have a little concrete patio. Little shrubs in between. Great pickle ball courts. When we where here most of the snowbirds left. Great place for a week or two. - Traveller Excel

First time to stay in this area. We were met at the gate by a very friendly staff member who told us to find the site of our choice then register at the office and let them know our choice. Very nice campground, sites are nice and level and a decent amount of room at each site. Campground also has organized lunches and dinners. Nice touch if you don't want to cook. - Dedra C
