Rate is based on Monthly, including electricity. RPR suggests that we review a park even if we have reviewed it before, so I will. This is our fifth year here, and we are coming back next year again. We always stay from two to three months. As I and others have said before, this is a RESORT. You name it and they have it. It is a 55+ park, and so that cuts out some RVers, but those who qualify should come and join us. Like my wife says, "If you get board here, it isn't thier fault." The newest addition is Pickleball. Wonderful game. This goes along with hiking 'club', bicycling 'club', water volleyball, water aerobics, line dancing classes, dance classes, tap classes, golf outings, tennis and many other 'active' activities, along with pool, bocce ball, shuffle board, low (and very low) impact aerobics, for the less mobile, and them things like wood shop, ceramics, quilting, Operation Linus, Bible study, etc.

I have written enough, but not enough. Come join us. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This a resort, not a park. This is our 3rd year that we have spent Feb. & March here. In 10 years of traveling we have not found anyplace that is even close. The people and staff are wonderful. It has everything, pools, workout rooms, carpentry shop and lots of activities. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground remains a TEN. This is our second year here and we are coming back next year. As all of the other previous reviews have stated, the amenities are first rate. One other thing is that as opposed to some reviews of other parks that have many "full timers", and the "short timers" are ignored or even worse, in this park there is no difference in acceptance between owners of lots and those of us who just rent. Everyone is as friendly as they can be. We are staying in the same spot next year as this, and the neighbor on one side said that he won't be in that space next year and said that he is sorry that we won't be neighbors next year. The price is based on a monthly rate. Hope some of you come to join us. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This beautiful RV resort has all private lots and many are rented out to people like us. There are 2 large and well maintained clubhouses and 2 more satellite clubhouses. There is a indoor pool with a large spa and co-ed sauna. There is an Olympic size lap pool with a total of 6 pools, 5 spas and 3 saunas. There are lighted tennis courts and a indoor shuffleboard pavilion. There is a ballroom, dance floor, stage and large kitchen. There is a fully equipped fitness center and dance studio; library,billiards room and horseshoe pits. There are several laundries, card and hobby rooms, a putting green, and a gas barbecue picnic area. This is an over-55 resort for owners and renters. They offer many activities and social gatherings. Our fee was for one month from a private lot owner with access to a storage shed with a table and chairs. You are close to Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Thousand Palms. We attend the tennis tournament at Indian Wells which is only 20 minutes away. This is a great place to stay in the warm California desert and a beautiful and friendly atmosphere.

We planned to say here for six weeks, but loved the place so much we extended our stay for another 11 days. The resort is entirely owner owned, and you rent from the owner through the office. It is exceptionally beautiful. Clean, well kept, with many activities, including bocce ball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, dances, bingo, etc. etc. The people in the office are very friendly as are all the people in the park. There are many park models in the park, but they are very well kept up. Swimming pools, hot tubs, showers, laundry, all spotless. The rate quoted is based on a monthly rate. This is a "55+" park. We are going back next year. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
