Very nice park. Free and strong wi-fi. Good cable TV. Many spaces are mostly gravel, with a small cement patio area. I think there could be a lot less gravel and more cement! The pool area is spectacular - 3 beautiful pools. The only reason I gave them 9 stars and not 10 is that the trash facilities are inadquate. It's a hugh 600 space park and there's only 2 trash bins, one on the east side and one on the west. They come around and pick up the trash at your site once a week. REALLY - once a WEEK! Who only has trash once a week?!! We also had an ant problem and had to spread cleanser around the tires. They need to insectiside the spots when they empty and keep the bushes trimmed better. But the office was nice about coming out and spraying when I called them. The asst. manager was very nice and helpful. They also need to provide a table at the sites; there aren't any. The park has lots of activities during the season. However we were there in July and the activities were over. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We retired out of Temecula. We'd driven thru this area many times over the years without realizing there was even a park here (even though it has its own dedicated stop light). When we visit the Temecula area, we have two parks we generally use. Both have shortcomings. A third, our favorite, a little known gem on the shores of Lake Elsinore, was booked solid. So we thought we'd try Golden Village Palms. What a great find! We took advantage of a special rate ($139/week) for a very nice back-in site. (We were given a couple of sites to choose from, which I really appreciated.) The park is huge, with a lot of different types of sites, many recently renovated. This is an 'active adults' park. Kids are allowed for up to 2 weeks so they can babysit their grandparents. Visiting kids are restricted to certain areas & must be supervised. Our site backed up to Devonshire road. Traffic noise could be an issue unless you employ white noise. Wifi was taxed when park was heavily occupied. Our initial 2 week stay evolved into a 3 months (constructing a home in nearby Murrieta). We found the staff to be excellent. The local communities are lower socioeconomic. Nearby Temecula & Murrieta offer a tremendous variety of shopping & recreational activities. If you are so inclined, the outstanding 412 church, associated with Calvary Chapel, is nearby. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

After being on the road for almost 10 months we decided to winter here which is near our family. It is very well managed and very clean with 3 pools & 3 hot tubs as well as lots of activities. It is a secure gated community close to shopping. The sites all have pads, some bigger than others, we were given a choice of 3. There are a lot of snowbirds from Canada and northern US states which we thoroughly enjoyed - part of traveling is meeting others! There are a lot of activities including water polo, pickle ball, poker. cribbage and even pot lucks in the ballroom. During the winter they bring in a lot of bands and even have free DJ and appetizers near the pool on Friday nights. They have a laundromat, billiard room, gym and chipping/putting green. There's even a golf club with discounted golf twice a week! Hemet is not a destination for sightseers but you are within about an hour of San Diego, 2 hours to LA and 1/2 hour to Temecula (Old Town, Wine Country). Also pet friendly with two dog parks. There's a weekly Farmer's Market (not exceptional) and sometimes weekend events like car shows - none of the activities were such that they seemed bothersome if you didn't want to participate. The front desk staff is very friendly & helpful and, for the most part, management staff responds to any issues which might arise.

The only negative we could mention is the library computers need upgrading and the wifi is terrible. They just made it free during our stay but it still didn't work very well. Some people had better luck than others.

We will definitely come back! We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is a monthly. Great place, 3 swimming pools, 3 hot tubs. Huge back-ins, great free WiFi but park was almost empty. Beautiful landscaping, this place is awesome. The only things is the weather: it can be cold in winter.

We sure will come back. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped here on our way to Arizona to see some friends and ended up cancelling the trip to Arizona and staying for two months! It is a nice park in a not-so-nice city, with lots of lawn areas, shade trees and hedges for privacy.

As others have noted, there is LOTS to do, with pickleball, horse shoes, volleyball, an indoor shuffleboard stadium, three pools and activities indoors to keep anyone entertained and occupied. We were struck by how nice the people staying here are, and met lots of Canadians and American residents fleeing the snow.

We had a great back-in site with three trees and a hedge. One of the fruit trees was in bloom and the smell of the blossoms was incredible. They allow canopies, so we got one, set up our little camp site, with a propane fire pit and chairs and created a little slice of heaven.

In our two months at GVP, we met a number of great folks, some of whom will be life-long friends. We will definitely be back. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a great park for active guests. Pickleball, shuffleboard, sand volleyball, pool volleyball, horseshoes, etc. Three large swimming pools and three hot tubs. Very nice grounds, well kept up. Many of the motorhome sites are being remodeled with new surfaces and landscaping. Our site was very large and shaded, # 716, just across the road from the pickleball courts (4 courts with shaded seating). We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The positives: Nice clubhouse; nice pools and hot tubs; lots of activities like pool, table tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, etc. Staff was friendly and attentive; Price wasn't too bad as it was a special rate for a week and then Passport America for a couple nights; We had ants and they immediately treated for them; We also needed a couple trees trimmed which they took care of.

The negatives: The free WiFi is fairly useless. We were visiting friends who had their own internet so we used their hot spot. We barely fit in our site and we were parked half on broken concrete and half off. The roads are a bit narrow for large rigs. Lots of homeless and other interesting folks in the area although we never felt in danger. We camped at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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!

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.
