Paid weekend rate. Cost was high. Many vacant sites throughout the park. Would not have stayed here; however, wanted to visit with friends. Men's Shower/bathroom facility in dire need of upgrade. Premium sites are very close together. Rules do not seem to be fair and equitable. Last season I was not allowed to remove my truck camper, others in the park were allowed to do so. This park is expensive. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Good shopping and golf nearby.

Very nice park with extra long and wide pull thru sites. Has an off leash dog park. Good hook-ups and cable and limited W-Fi. Lots of amenities and activities. Great location with plenty of stores nearby. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been coming to this park for 6 years and it is a wonderful park. It doesn't cater only to Canadians as the previous reviewer has stated, just call and make a reservation - they take everyone. Everyone is friendly (even the Canadians, and we have lots of American friends in the park. Lots of activities, at least 25 golf courses in the area (4 within 15 miles), large pickleball courts (which I believe the Americans created, we hadn't heard of it before coming here). The pools are not water volleyball only (just at 10:30 am everyday for a couple of hours), the 3 hot tubs are clean and three different temps. As far as we know the business about the police writing down license plates, that is just nonsense, they are just the volunteer police who drive though the park looking out for us. We love this place and will keep coming back and we recommend Golden Village to anyone coming this way! We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

As mentioned in previous reviews, this park uses their parking area that is almost entirely asphalt. While there are some small trees, they don't provide much shade. Our major complaint about this park is the fact that the broken up asphalt had been sealed some time in the past (I would guess about a year ago). Walking on the asphalt coated the soles of our shoes with a black sooty material that came off on the carpet and tile floors of the RV. We did not notice what was happening until we had been there 3 days. Tomorrow we are having our RV's carpets cleaned. I promise that we will Never stay at Golden Village Palms RV Resort again! We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an older park which caters to Canadians. They book less then 5% of their sites to Americans. Not American friendly at all and I would not recommend this park to anyone but Canadians. The park is fairly clean. The pull through sites are terrible. You are parked on broken black top and dirt mixed with stones. Speed bumps every 50 feet (Big ones). No golf, tennis or any American recreation. They have 2 volley ball only pools, 3 not so clean hot tubs, and a large float pool. WiFi is terrible. They have a good cable TV signal. Have noticed the police coming to this park at night writing down Canadian license plated to see if they are over their limit in length of stay in California without a temporary CA tag. California will inbound any RV if over the time limit. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very expensive for what you get, Some of the sites will not accommodate a 40' rig. My assigned space was all tarmac. No outside table. WiFi was a additional charge but not working when we were there. Nice club house and pool area. The park hosts numerous free events, There was a car show and hamburger feed with 50's music on the day we arrived. But beware: This is Not a 55 plus park, but was advised this is an "Active Adult" park! Large group with young children next to us was outside past midnight partying. Kids on one side and barking dogs on the other. I will not stay here again. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Not much to add to the items checked off except that the facilities are impressive. Pools are attractive, hot tubs clean and well maintained. Wide sites, perhaps a little short for some of the RV's, but plenty of room for our set up. Gravel site with concrete patio and asphalt parking space for tow vehicle. Roomy compared to most RV parks. Friendly welcome and service. Excellent laundry facility. Excellent facilities. Though I did not participate there appears to be a lot of activities available. We did have a little colony of ants wanting to ruin our stay on the first day, but the resort mentions this possibility and a little harmless spray and problem solved for the month.

Rate is based on monthly rate of $705. Despite what is shown here, this is NOT a 55 plus park. I asked the Manager when I issued a complaint regarding screaming children in the site beside us and was advised that this is an "Active Adult" park! This being Spring Break there were quite a number of young children in the park and I was advised by other guests that at Christmastime there were also quite a lot of children at the pool. The grounds, pool area and public spaces are very nice. If you are a pickleball player or want to learn this sport there are four new courts and free paddles and balls are available. The park hosts numerous free events such as live music at the poolside patio 6 days a week from 11-2 pm, Wine and Cheese Reception every Friday at 3:30 pm, to name just a few. They also put on dances every Saturday night with a different live band and the cost is just $8 each and you can bring your own beverages and snacks. Other live performances are also put on which run about $20 per person. On the negative side, if you are staying for anything less than 3 months the park will not let you reserve a specific site. If you are a small rig this is probably not an issue, but if you have a 38 foot or longer unit with slide-outs many of the sites will not accomodate you. My recommendation to anyone choosing to stay here is to leave your RV in the check-in area and ask the Park staff to escort you in a golf cart to the available sites and once you have selected one that you like and will fit into, then move onto the site. We moved twice and spoke to others who moved 5 times before finally finding a site that would accomodate their rig. Another negative, is that there is NO dog/pet section; the whole park is available for them. As a result we had barking dogs at 3 sites surrounding us. Despite rules that state dogs can not be left tethered outside when no one is present, it happens and complaints to the Park Manager changed nothing. It seems if you are a full-timer in the Park you can do whatever you want since the park is desperate for the revenue. Wi-Fi is available for a fee but it is our recommendation that if you are staying for one month or more that you subscribe to Time Warner at the same price. A Time Warner Rep will come to your site and arrange for the service. Shopping and numerous restaurants are located close by. If you want to stay in Hemet this is the only RV park to stay at but given our experience we aren't sure if we would stay here again. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A great park for 55's and older. We stayed 3 months and had a great stay. Wish that would add Bingo to the games, and kept their Friday breakfast. Not everything has to turn a profit. We even got to know some of the full timers in the park and enjoyed them as well. All in all a very nice place. We're a bit picky about showers and restroom and I would say they could have been a little cleaner. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was my second two-week stay at what is a first-class destination resort for the active 55+ crowd. There are plenty of activities, i.e. volleyball, pickleball, shuffleboard, cards, billiards, dances, concerts, and socials. This week, for instance, we had taste of the valley, a farmer's market, car show and crafts fair. Next week, I look forward to a Kenny Cetera concert which is tribute band to the Chicago Transit Authority band of the 60's and 70's. My collie and I totally enjoy everything about this resort. If you can't find some activity that interests you here, you would be better to dry camp out in the desert. A big thank you to the manager, his staff, and the many volunteers who make this place a wonderful retreat and vacation from retirement. The vendors, who are allowed on the property, are carefully screened by park management. I found the RV washers, repair techs, propane delivery man, and weed sprayers, all to be kind, considerate, and prompt in taking care of business. I disagree with and don't understand prior negative posts. This resort, the RV'ers who winter here, and the people who work here are all first class. I will return again next winter. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate based upon 5+ week stay. Nice clean well maintained park. Super fitness facility and pools. I know some of you use the park toilets and showers. The showers, etc., are centralized at the pools and the rules state they are only for use when at the pool. "At all other times, RVer is to use the bathroom located in the RVer's recreational vehicle." You have to pay for Wi-Fi, but the park let me try it for a few days at no charge. It was useless so we opted out, going to McDonald's for free Wi-Fi. Most of the sites are back in about 35' deep, by 25-30' wide. We have a 40' trailer. Some big rigs did back in but the rear of the RV was in the hedge while the front was on or in the road. They have 30-35 pull through sites but they cannot be rented by snowbirds. They are only for RV groups. The pull throughs are long and wide. We were allowed a pull through at the end of a row. It was narrow and tiny. Our door opened onto a road, trees blocked our awning, we needed 35' of sewer hose to reach the sewer that was at the same elevation as our RV outlet, etc. Of the 5 weekends we were here, groups used the pull through sites too. Most of the time we were here, we were the only RV in the pull through sites. I don't understand the business model that would turn away snowbirders in favor of renting for 4 days/month to RV groups. Nice park but if I can't get a spot with enough room, we won't return. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A corporate run park with some interesting policies. We spent a month here so we had to submit photocopies of our insurance and vehicle registration as well as sign for the 23 page, printed on both sides "rules". Which basically say they will decide on what the rules are and when to enforce them. Blatant violations of the rules abound, apparently they don't enforce them? The spaces are wide but our 43' MH had the mirrors hanging in the roadway with the back end against the shrubs in their 47 foot space. Narrow roadways on most sections. After 6 pm gate code changes on 1st of month, be sure to get the new one if you stay during the change. Beware of ants. Spray all your RV openings to avoid infestations. This is also emphasized in the rules book. I'll try another park when I come through again. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nicest park we have ever stayed in. The facilities are first rate and the crew keeps them that way. Everyone from the folks at the front desk to the guy picking up the trash is friendly and professional. There are lots of activities both athletic and non-athletic, plenty of social gatherings and a friendly atmosphere by fellow snow birds and the rare full-timer. The streets are a bit tight, but even big rigs managed to get located with a bit of help with directions. Two shopping centers across the street are convenient and encourage residents to walk rather than take the car. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As previous reviews this has everything & everybody to make your stay perfectly relaxing with every amenity & very strong Wi-Fi. Would defiantly recommend. We stayed as Passport America members so what a bonus at the PA price We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were passing through, staying for just a few days, and for the price ($60 to $80/night), we expected a resort oasis. Instead, we were on broken asphalt and gravel with a few sick trees (and ants). It's basically a retirement modular park with some RV spaces, located between a Hampton Inn and a Home Depot. Good thing we were off visiting relatives instead of planning to use "resort" facilities, because the guard who let us in (gate closed at 4:00 pm) advised that the main pool was closed because someone put motor oil in it. Not a good value and not a place we'll visit again. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.
