This is a desert campground on the edge of a man made lake. Sites have water and electricity and a dump station. Campsites appear all to be level and there are two large grass areas. Shade is sparse and while this would be a nice winter campground it will get very hot here in the summer.
Restrooms are campground and heavily used as there are tent campers here too. Restrooms and showers are kept quite clean even through a bit worn. They do have small bugs that are attracted to the lights so an early morning shower must be shared with these small critters! Showers are 50 cents for three minutes so plan on spending a dollar!
A nice stop for a day or two with some very beautiful and rugged mountains in the background. Easy access and friendly staff. There is a sheriff shooting range at the other end of the lake so campers will hear shooting in the distance from time to time, but never at night.
Each site has a fire ring and a metal picnic table. lakeside campsites all have a view of the lake and mountains. - Old Detective
What a find in the Palm Springs area! It is what it is, and that's not a resort. Located at the base of the mountains just south of La Quinta, it was quiet, relaxing, and a great base for the area. Sites on the exterior of the loop are level dirt, really spacious, and many have some shade. Coin operated showers were adequate and restroom was very clean. I will definitely stay here again when in the area. Price reflects Passport America. - ldukeb
Conveniently located near town, this county park is nice enough, but over-priced. Gravel/dirt sites are average size with water and electric hookups at front. Flies enjoy trash cans with no lids. Extra fees for dogs, yet no dog facilities. There is a little hiking at west edge of park. Can not swim in the lake. The Passport America discount is supposedly available Mon-Wed (except holidays). We checked in Wednesday and told it was a holiday. After searching, the only holiday we found was Employee Legal Awareness Day. Guess there is some kind of holiday every day. Would not return. - Okiedoke
