As a retirement center for folks over 70, this place is a 10. However, as an RV park for folks spending a few nights or weeks, it's not so good. The RV area is just a sand spit with broken cement slabs. No trees, few plantings, pretty ugly. All the facilities and services are geared towards the long-term and/or full-timers. So we, as casual travelers, didn't feel very welcome in using the resort facilities. The wifi, however, is great. So how you rate this place just depends on what it is you're looking for. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Remote part of Desert Hot Springs. Nearest grocery store is about 10 miles away. Same for gas station. Not convenient to Palm Springs, etc. So, great if you want to sit and play golf. Not so great if you want to see the local sights.

This was our first visit to this park. No real complaints. We had site 304, which was in the southwest corner of the property. The pad was packed dirt/sand with a concrete patio. Utilities were good with the utilities located at the rear of the site. Didn't try their cable, used our satellite dish. The wind can howl but we did enjoy the fresh air and clear nights for star gazing. This resort is full of park models and golf carts and did have open spaces for travelers. The pool and 4 spas are fed by hot mineral springs which was very enjoyable. There are many activities such as cooking classes, movies on Mondays, pickelball, golf and many others. The roads are tight for large RVs but worked OK for TT. The main gate closes at 4pm so a keycode is needed for entry. Clean shower/locker room and laundry. A keycard must be purchased at $5 before you can use the machines. It works as a debit card as you load it with funds to use the machines ($1.50 to wash and $1.75 to dry). We did enjoy the laid back atmosphere. Restaurants are few in town. Dining will be found in the Palm Springs proper. Since there are many "residents", they tend to be "clique-ish". Trash receptacle is located outside of the park, along with the dog park. This place is SO large, a map is need to navigate. Would return again. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second visit to this park. We enjoy the area and love the thermal pool, so we came back. People are pretty friendly but rather clique as many have been returning for years. There are so many things to do in the area and we chose a site (456) with a view. That was beautiful but the price to pay is WIND, which can rip through the valley with a vengeance. Be aware whether you want ambiance vs comfort. Park is centered around golf. Good roads for bikes but narrow for large rigs. Seems they are looking to convert park to all park models. Laundry clean but inconveniently located at main office building. We felt safe and met some nice people and would return again. Sites are old but more than adequate, easy to level. No tables at sites. Water was barely potable per our tester so everyone uses bottled water (.30) that was cheaper at local kiosks. Only one trash dump that was frequently out of order but maintained with alternate plans for collection, again inconveniently located only at entrance to park. Staff were all friendly and actively trying to sell park models, inviting us to BBQ sales talks every week. They weren't too pushy and we did not attend talks. All in all it was a satisfactory two month stay for us, without incident. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Park very beautiful, clean, people very friendly. Would stay there again. The only drawback is the size of the cement patio. They were made for small trailers and fifth wheels with door in middle or back. Motor homes with doors in front are out of luck. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Palm Springs and the Coachella valley are full of places to shop, such a variety of food stores, great bargains. If you have never tried a In and Out burger, it is a must!

This was an overnight stop over on our way to Mesa, AZ from the California coast. Arrived on Sunday and the office is closed. Packet was waiting for us - but the map is none to clear and street markings aren't that great. Very tight driving in the park - especially making turns. I'm sure that for an extended stay it would be fine, but for an overnight I wouldn't recommend it. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Overall the park is clean. 30 minutes from any shopping. Water quality bad - buy bottled water. Dog park at the entrance of park - you have to leave park to walk dog. Not very well run no shade to be seen. The park is quiet. The pools were ok but need some sprucing up. A lot of park models for sale. We would not come back here.

Efficient and friendly check-in at this 55+ park. 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Nightly rate of $ 40 (as first time visitors), otherwise $ 50. Very spacious sites with concrete sitting area. No separate buildings for restrooms and showers, these are only available in clubhouse (closed after 10 PM).

Four hot pools and very large pool area, crowded during some hours of the day. Many activities. The free WiFi was the best we encountered during our vacation so far. Slower connection during evening hours due to lots of active private networks, but no sudden disconnections. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was did not have a guide to the back in site to assist. Most over 55 parks have that service. The facilities (restrooms, etc) at the clubhouse are in need of renovation. The exercise room was a very low grade of equipment. The sites are fairly level and are sand with a small concrete pad. The main disadvantage of this park is that the wind is excessive on the north side of I-10. We would not visit this park again. We would stay south of the I-10.

This is a nice park with lots of permanent residents and great amenities. People here are very friendly and made us feel quite welcome. The sites are dirt composition, good size, level, very quiet, and well maintained. The cable works very well here but we found the "Wi-Fi" to be slow and sometimes hard to get a good connection. To be fair my lap top may have had something to do with this. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Very nice park away from the hubbub of Palm Springs but very easy to find and locate. The golf course is a small executive course and the driving range is sand and sage brush. Very nice tennis facility run by wonderful people living right at the site. The pools and spas were beautiful and busy! If you are a hiker you would love this place. You can hike for miles up mountains or across the desert. Many park models but many RVs as well. We were welcomed and given guides to many places in the area to visit. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

If you hate fresh air, and love the scent of fabric softener and laundry detergent, and all the beds in the Valley's laundromats are taken, this is the place for you. We first camped here 4 years ago and really liked the place. When we came back for a longer stay the next year, it looked a bit run down, and one could hardly breathe in the pool area, as the laundry vented out into the pool area. We skipped a year, and when I called this year to ask if anything had been done about the problem, I was told that all of the dryers were newly vented, so we made a short, two week reservation, intending to extend our stay if things were as presented. We could smell the laundry facility before passing through the gates. I guess no one told management that even with new venting, someone had to clean them. The place is considerably more run down than two years ago, and many park models are for sale. Friends who own park models are really unhappy, but apparently, it is very hard to sell them, yet the fees keep rising. We will not be returning. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Passport America rate of $25 a night. Caution: there are "pull-throughs" but the length wasn't enough for our trailer so we had to do a back-in. My only suggestion would be to orient the back-ins at a 45 degree angle from the street. But what a great park. Their rec center with the hot spring pools was wonderful. The park was neat and clean. The people here are friendly and seem very pleased with everything. I would definitely come back again. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
