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. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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????) We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Desert Hot Springs is a high crime area, and this park is hopefully a bit out of the way, so it's worth having to drive to town.

Town itself doesn't offer much, except for some very nice, some not so nice spas with hot springs. But apparently the Desert Pools hot tubs are also mineral water, just getting a chair around the pool is very difficult.

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. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice and helpful staff. The 3 mineral pools offered different temperatures. The mineral water was very relaxing with no odor. Will definitely return. Open, gravel sites. Easy to navigate with adequate space in roadways which were in good condition. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The staff at Desert Pools were very professional, courteous, helpful, and accommodating. The natural hot springs were refreshing, as was the pool. We have been full timers for a year now. We have traveled throughout the west coast and central US. Desert Pools was one of our favorite places to stay. We will be back. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Site was wide and long. There were shrubs behind and beside all sites. Mineral water pool and three spas were well-maintained and clean. Attractive park with miniature golf and pickle ball. Great value compared to competitors in the area.
Definitely would return! We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A nice park outside of the cities. A bit of a drive for supplies and gas.
Previous reviews have covered the amenities of the park.
The park has a few activities every week. Saturday night dinner was worth the price - $10 for a complete steak dinner! We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very friendly staff. Campground was very clean and quiet. Pool area and hot tubs were warm and well maintained. Sites were large gravel areas which were fairly level. Park was not very busy so we had plenty of room. There were a few scheduled weekly activities during our stay.

The park is in a windy location (near a huge wind farm outside of Palm Springs ) So we couldn't put our awning out for fear of the wind.

There are no picnic tables at any of the sites which surprised us.

The wifi costs $2 per day and the staff said it wasn't worth it as it was very unreliable so we went and purchased a hot spot at ATT.

Desert Hot Springs community is quite small so for eating, shopping and entertainment Palm Springs is about 10 miles away. You definitely feel like you are away from the busy areas in the valley which was nice. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Spaces were about average for a private place. We were on an end so had more room on our patio side. Sites were easy to back into and were fairly level. We were able to walk our dog through a row of empty sites. However, if the place was full, I believe it would have been difficult to find a good walk area for the dog. They offer many extras, like ice cream socials, dinner on Thursdays, bingo and breakfast cinnamon rolls, which seemed nice, especially if you are there for a longer time. Very reasonably priced coin laundry, room was also clean and safe. The view surrounding the area is very nice, mountains all around. It is placed in a good location for going either to Palm Springs or Palm Desert. Check in was easy and personnel were friendly. We would stay here again.

Liked the pool and the 3 hot tubs. Friendly staff. Wi-fi not great, and long walk to trash.

We are coming back in March. Would recommend. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park and very well kept. We didn't have time to use the pools but have reservations to go in February and can't wait to try them out. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Park has been "cleaned up". Since Western Horizon let it go so far downhill, it will take a lot of time to bring it back. Roads have been paved and some buildings have been painted. The pool looks great. Passport rate is $20 but you are required to pay 2.50 extra if your rig has 50 amp. Many spots are not level and I had to have one wheel off the ground. Nothing going on with about 20 rigs in the entire park and most of them are working at the park cleaning up. We camped at Desert Pools RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park and people. Recent remodel and clean up has made this my favorite park in the area. Great pool and hot tubs. Pet friendly and lots of fun! Would love to see them let customers "pick" the site they want. Rvers like to have that option! Don't miss the ice cream social and try to finish the huge banana split!!!
