There was a ad in the back of the Thousand Trails magazine that out of season was $300 for a month so my wife and I decided to go down for November from the Sacramento area and loved it. The spots are wide enough to stretch out. Ours used to have a park model on it. It was far enough off the road to be quiet. Three pools and two spas that we took advantage of almost everyday. Just up the street is a long set of commercial area that had everything (Walmart, Costco, Home Depot, Bevmo, etc). Many things to do in the area. The hordes from the North hadn't filled it up yet so we didn't meet too many people but they have BBQ's every Saturday and we met a real nice bunch at the Thanksgiving dinner. We will be back in January at full rate we loved it so much. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean park. Have great fenced "off leash" area for dogs, but be careful if you have a smaller dog--it can sneak through the pickets. Sites are plenty big. Just an overnighter so didn't really check it out too much. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times before and now it is getting harder to give this park a higher rating. Many sites are "sandwiched" between permanent park models so there is a very closed in feeling. This is especially true in the pull through sites. Our site (147) had a sewer vent pipe in it that created a nasty smell at many times in our motor home and site. The back in sites seem quite small and not suited for larger units. It is however quiet and clean and, as there are not many choices for "reasonable" parks in the area we will stay here again. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Only stayed overnight but appeared to be clean, well run, and friendly. Spaces kind of close together paved with grass in between. Seemed mostly long termers. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If you like feeling like a sardine at the bottom of the can, then this is the park for you! My husband and I have traveled all across Canada and almost 2/3 of the US, and this is, quite frankly, the resort with among the smallest sites we've ever come across. We have a 40' motorhome and we were given a site against the fence (back in only) between 2 very full trees. By the time we wedged our coach in there, we ended up pulling forward & trying again in order to push it closer to the coach next to us - there wouldn't have been any way to put our living room slide out if we hadn't made some adjustments. Thus, we lost our "patio" because of the need to move over. Since the "patio" is about the size of a postage stamp, we didn't lose much! I understand that February is a busy time of year, but if they can't fit you comfortably into a site, then one of 2 things should happen: significant discount off the $60+ a night fee or suggest another resort. All that being said, the park has many amenities, and I understand why people would gravitate there. A calendar of events, 2-3 swimming pools in the resort, laundry facilities, restrooms, off-leash dog area, and proximity to shopping & restaurants. The staff is also very friendly & helpful (except for the security guy, who flipped out because we'd parked our tow vehicle cross-ways, rather than straight on! We parked the way we'd been told at the front registration, but he was NOT happy with that! We re-parked his way, leaving the truck sticking into the roadway about 5 feet! Seemed legit.... yes, that's sarcasm!) However, we were unimpressed with this park and definitely won't recommend it or stay there again. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Geared to seasonals, but they have overnight spots. Sites are narrow, but paved, with grass in between sites. Wi-Fi (Tengo Internet) is somewhat irritating to use, but once you get online it is satisfactory. We planned on staying 3 days and ended up staying 6. Very friendly staff.

Nice clean park. Close to shopping and Joshua Tree Nat'l Park. Nice site across the street from the pool and restrooms/showers. Mostly long-term. Would stay there again. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed here a lot. It is a nice park, convenient to a lot of activities. Narrow sites, internet (Tengonet) very slow. Will stay again. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Narrow sites. Good paved road. Caters to seasonal retired folks. Staff and residents seemed nice. Three pools and 3 shower areas so that was good and accessible and very clean. We only stayed two nights. Lots of activities offered. We had problems first day with TengoInternet, but the 2nd day, connection and getting set up much better. No way to buy TengoInternet code for a second computer. At other parks, I paid $5 so that we both could use our computers at the same time. The lady checking us in, said there was no way to give me a 2nd code even though she had a clipboard full of the slips. Very quiet spot. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects the PA discount. This park has so much to offer. It's a very clean tidy park. The paved roads are in very good condition. The landscaping is carefully maintained making this one of the prettier parks that we've stayed in. There are three swimming pools in the complex. The rest rooms and laundry facilities were spotless. The park caters to the retired seasonal crowd. These folks take pride in their properties. Many are older park models but they are all well maintained. There is a real sense of community in this park. The residents here are among the friendliest we've met. Costco and Home Depot are about a driver and 5 iron away. Tons of options for groceries in the area. I highly recommend this campground. We look forward to returning here sometime down the road. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for an overnight on a very hot day in June. The office is closed on weekends but they had our site info taped to the door. We left early the next morning so we never saw any of the staff. This is basically a seasonal park, mostly park models, and this time of year looked deserted. Our pull-through site had good access and enabled us to keep our car hooked up. We weren't provided any park info other than a basic map; never did find the restrooms, except for one at the bathhouse at one of the pools. Price seemed very high for what we got at this time of year, but there aren't a lot of options in the area. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is for Passport America, even though the current book has it as $17.50 for W/E site. We got a FHU one, which we didn't need for just an overnight stay. When asked about it, they said all of the sites are the same price now, and wouldn't move us because it was too hot?? Would probably look for something a bit cheaper for just an overnight stay.

Read the reviews and decided to stay in spite of the negative comments. Specifically it is 3 miles from the Indian Wells Tennis Garden where the Open Tennis Tournament is held yearly, so the commute was easy for us and none of the other factors dissuaded us. We are self contained including having satellite TV, Internet satellite mounted on the roof, our own washer and dryer onboard, and both of us have cell phones so those amenities are not required for us. I agree the park could use some updating but the proximity to our primary reason for being here made all of that not a factor in the decision. It is off the highway so there is only city noise during the day, very little at night except sirens occasionally. The site was a pull through concrete drive more then long enough for our 40 footer with the toad parked behind, with shade trees over the drivers cab and tall bushes to provide separation from the park model that sat next to us. The 42 foot quad slide rig next to us was closer then I like, but when owners lower their shades all day long every day I take it as and indication they don't want to mingle and respect that. I have more then enough to do to keep me busy with my own life without relying on park residents to need to be friendly. If they initiate I will respond, but it isn't why I was here. Yes, the price is higher then I like to pay, but for the benefit in time and travel distance I will live with it. The office staff were efficient and had our reservation ready to go when we arrived. We got our mail delivered here and they have an efficient system for distribution of our mail. We checked out the pool, but that lasted 15 minutes because it is small and very much utilized, too crowded for my taste! There is a rather constant parade of small business owners ready to wash my coach and car which I had to decline. Shopping is all around with a Super WalMart, and Costco less then a mile west and Ralph's grocery store 1.5 miles south of the park. The electricity is 50 amp and clean, the water pressure is about 60 psi so use a regulator and the sewer connection required one length of hose to reach the in-ground access port, all the amenities an full time RVer should need. We were told when we asked that their Wi-Fi was "not the best" and it is TengoInternet, which I am not fond of under the best of circumstances. To attend the BNP Paribas Indian Wells Tennis Open was our agenda and this park met that need. If I decide to attend in the future I would come here again. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is way too expensive for it's condition and services. First of all it is mostly a trailer park with the trailers in a mix of condition. There are many permanents and seasonals. We were placed in a tight back in with older trailers on each side. There are pull throughs available but even though we booked early we couldn't seem to get one. Wi-Fi was not working even when we went to the office. We ended up at Starbucks. No cable either. This place needs serious updating from the restrooms to the laundry to all other services. We will not consider this park for future visits. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 1 week and the nightly rate is pretty steep. The pull through RVers are sandwiched in among the permanent park models. The back in sites are around the perimeter. This is a "stay for the winter" park. There are activities everyday. The facilities are clean and well maintained. Everybody is friendly. The Wi-Fi is horrible in the park. There is cable hook-up.
