I stayed here for 1 month and left ASAP! This is a disgusting place. Fully equipped with corrupt sleazy management and all the white trash, drug trafficking you can handle. Do yourself and others and don't experience this place. - daveer

This is an unusual park because it is combined with a mobile home park where people live permanently. That is actually a good thing. People can ask locals other than a park manager, where good shopping, etc., is. Also, some people leave their rigs here all year (parked in storage) and return by car every year. Most of the RV'ers we saw this winter were from Canada and returned to the area because they loved golf or the local casinos, or just the desert, which was lovely. I also liked that there were walking paths out into the desert behind the park, accessible through the side gate, and the scenery here was real, not landscaped. The park pool is large and the spa big enough for 20 or so people. The clubhouse is nice, too, with a kitchen and room for the nightly card games our group held. It has a pool table and room to read, with books to take out and leave some if you want. A nice, friendly place. Management was not really very friendly, but the people at the park made up for it. It's a short walk to a shopping center with a Vons, K-Mart, and Starbucks, so you don't have to drive everywhere. - dhsbrenda

Sky Valley is a hot springs resort with multiple hot spring pools in two club houses . A neat and clean mostly park model resort with RV sites throughout.Our site was a little tight for a 40 foot motor home side to side because there was a trellis on the patio and bushes and rocks on the driver side. Close enough to Palm Springs and Palm Desert without the traffic. A short drive to Joshua Tree NP. - CGNRG

The pools were outstanding. The park is well away from all amenities so if you don't have a toad you need to stock up well before you arrive. Nice and quiet. Great place for the dogs. - BigGene

Absolutely a beautiful park. Many pools with different temps for soaking and relaxing. We have stay here several times for a weekend just to unwind. We usually have the pool area to ourselves, it is so peaceful and relaxing. My favorite pool is one of the large swimming pools that is bath water temp - perfecting for flexible movement, swimming and so enjoyable. They have a wonderful restaurant on sight called Mignon and the food is excellent. Most of the park has permanent residents or snowbirds but they have sights for over nighters. I can hardly wait to go back - those crystal clear pools call to me. Naturally heated by springs and various temperatures, they are delightful. Sights have cement pads but we prefer and ask for a gravel sight. - Celeste T

Level but small site, barely large enough for RV. Very bureaucratic typical of large company. Staff tried to be helpful, but started disconnecting toad at bad place although asked not to, and wasn't facile with back in guidance. Won't stay here again, mostly due to site too small. - MSTraveler

Our first time here, top notch all the way. Tall vegetation between sites. All with concrete pad. Clean paved streets lined with Palm Trees, many with lights. This is the most dog friendly park and most friendly campers too.
They have live music and free beer and wine on Wednesdays next to the pool. Who does that nowadays????????.
There is also a nice 9 hole golf course on premise.
The dog parks have lawns and palm trees. - Internetputz

Great place to stay, exceeded our expectations. We spent a few days here on our way home, wished we could have stayed longer. RV sites are together between two streets (backins), primarily a park model facility. Site was good-size, with tall oleander bushes between sites adding to privacy. Sites were staggered slightly, with sites on one street half-way between the sites behind, also adding to the feeling of privacy. Roads are paved, level gravel sites with concrete patio. Fantastic fenced dog parks, everything neat and clean. Quite and peaceful oasis. It is winder in Desert Hot Springs than on the other side of the freeway. We will return. - SW Rick

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

An oasis in the middle of the desert. Palm trees, golf course, nice lake, swimming pool, and friendly management. It can't be seen from the freeway. It was a pleasant surprise when we saw up close. Full amenities were offered, but we only dry camped over night. Seemed very focused for seniors. Radio signals are faint, the closest gas is 20 miles away, and closest grocery store is about 40 miles away. Manager says it is 80% empty in the summer. I can see why! - zzzya

Not a 5 star park but a wonderful park for those escaping the snow and wanting to see southern California. Wonderful pool and jacuzzi, all natural hot springs. Management and staff are wonderful. - carmen33

Without discount it's a bit high but, hey, welcome to California. Nice pool/spa area, 9 hole golf course, pickleball courts, dog run, big clubhouse, lots of activities for the 55+ crowd. Interior roads are horribly narrow, not bigger rig friendly. - rvrrat520

A nice facility, with plenty to do. Sites are spacious. All sites are gravel, but have a concrete patio. The mineral water pool and hot tubs are a huge positive. All are between 90 and 104 degrees. The laundry is a huge negative. Machines take a card which cost $5 plus whatever is put on it. All refills are in $5 increments, with no refunds. WiFi is good. Cable is poor....you need a TimeWarner box to get most channels. - ta96silver

The main attraction to this park is the superb hot springs fed pool complex. Excellent. Older park with majority of permanent casistas. Numerous ones showing their age as are most residents. Very nice Chapel services dyring peak season. Not a family or kid friendly park. RV sites are sand, not very level but adequate. Site 293 is larger than most but not at all level. You have to back over high curbs on most RV sites. No shower/ restrooms except in pool area, which have been remodeled and are kept very clean. Deck area around water complex needs refurbished. Must wear shoes due to small stones. Close to Palm Springs attractions and shopping. Discount was good. Would not pay high monthly or annual rate. - venice

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

Great park to spend the winter in! This park is a mobile home park with large accessible RV sites available. They have hot mineral pools, a large pool at 90°F, two enclosed pools at 100°F and 104°F, a cool pool, and a sauna. Also a laundromat, library and club house with monthly activities. They have daily rates but this park is really set up for monthly or seasonal stays. We come here every year to "winter over" and love it and the family of people here. - GMR
