They worked to find a spot that would fit our long (65') rig. It was a very nice site with a wash behind us. The problems with the resort is that it is meant mostly for staying in a park model. The streets are narrow, so parking a longer rig is difficult. We had a problem with our cable connection. Calling the office didn't solve the problem, so they promised a repair person would come out to fix the problem. The repair person never showed. - Raquel

I spent a month here. Spent the first week in amongst the park models. After a disagreement with a neighbor I requested a move. Next site was much better in the mostly transient area of the resort. First site was very hard to back into due to cars parked on the street. I found the long term residents cordial but not overly friendly. Forget about star gazing at night even though there is nothing around the resort due to number of lights in the resort. If you want to receive mail or packages you must rent a mailbox for $10. Laundry cards are needed and you can only recharge the card in the East laundry room. Wind is pretty constant in the valley. You have to drive a bit to go shopping. - jnateg

Very clean and well maintained spaces and grounds. Lots of activities to do and very friendly staff and visitors. Will stay here again if in the area. - GWtrikerider

This campground is just inside the park boundary, but does not have vehicle access to the rest of the park. There are numerous hiking trails and it is close to services in the town of Yucca Valley. The campground is on a slope. There is water available and in the bathrooms. The nature center has some books/gifts available and there is a ranger present. The interior roads are in rough shape but navigable. - Dan C

This campground is just outside Natl. Park and has several trails starting right in the campground. Visitor Center staff is very nice and helpful. No showers, and bathrooms are messy with no soap or a way to dry hands. Just after staff cleans bathrooms, they are fine but seem to be messed up within an hour. Mostly tent campers here, so weekends were noisy til quiet hours at 10 pm. During the week was much quieter. It was uncommonly cold and windy the middle two weeks of February (lows in the 20s at night) so lots of folks cancelled and we had the park pretty much to ourselves during the week. Loved the WiFi at the Visitor Center and the extremely helpful and friendly staff. The park is old with terrible roads and uneven sites. But the Mountain Views and the gorgeous Joshua Trees made up for that. You can stay in this campground for a week, hiking every day and never enter the park, but I recommend that you do enter the park and see the rock formations and other dramatic landscape. It's a national park like no other. - Odysseer

Black Rock campground is on the northwest corner of Joshua Tree National Park. The campground is inside the park, and there are some very nice hiking trails nearby, but to get to the main part of the park, you'll drive about 15 miles east through the town, to get to the actual park entrance. The advantage of being on the edge of the park and next to the town is that cell service is excellent. The disadvantage is that it doesn't feel like "Joshua Tree." You're not in the rocks like at most of the other Joshua Tree campgrounds. The campground itself is okay. Not fancy, no amenities. The interior roads are in terrible shape. A crew was filling potholes the entire time we were there, but I think it was a battle they were not going to win. Our site was fine, but some sites are not level. There is a dump station for an extra $5. - AnnP

Access to the park is not so good. The tail of our coach scraped going in (as have many others from the scars left behind). There is a rear access...it is worse. The office was open but no one around. There was not a bell or any means of attracting the attention of the management. Finally, a young man emerged. He was pleasant and informative. He apologized for the poor internet that was available. He suggested that we keep an eye out for coyotes if we were to walk our dog outside of the park. There is no other place to walk them. We did not receive a hard copy receipt. We had a choice of e-mail or text if we wanted a record.
Our site #1 was small and very unlevel but we were able to make it work. Hookups were to the left and in good condition W, P & S but no cable connection. (It is advertised). When asked about cable TV we were told we were welcome to watch the office TV. It has cable. The grounds we neat and tidy. There is only concrete and dirt though and that's okay, it is in the desert. If there was a pool we did not see one nor was one mentioned at check in. The clientele are mostly permanents but their sites were tidy. The internet was non existent. We could not log on and we were right across from the office.
Had we not been on the road all day, we would have asked for our money back and stayed at a Walmart. This is a $20.00 per night park at best. All it has going for it is the power, water and sewer.
Not located in the nicest part of town. We paid $56.74 ($49.99 + $5.75 tax) and we will never be back. - Rollin Ollens

This is a tiny park and with few amenities. Space they had reserved for my trailer was not big enough, although they insisted it was, and we could not stay there. Some spaces looked to be reasonable size; all were back-in; and most looked to be seasonal. The space reserved for us was in front of the admin/laundry/meeting building and our hitch would have stuck out into the lane; and no room for the truck. They charged me 2 nights anyway per their policy. Beware if you make a reservation! From what I saw, the place looked relatively clean. Pool was tiny. - AL Sojourner

Have been staying here once a month for my husband's Dr. Appts. the Asst. Mgr. is the best very friendly and helpful, but the owner's son is hard to deal, he has taken over business and intimidates and makes you very uncomfortable. He has let things go around the grounds. It now has lots of weeds and stickers, showers need a good cleaning, animal droppings not picked up on the grounds, and he doesn't give the discounts advertised. - Cherishedgirls

We were on our way west and stopped for fuel at the Morongo Travel Center. We then decided to boondock in their parking lot. The lot is asphalt and relatively level and located at the far back of the casino/hotel. Park perpendicular to the marked parking spaces for an easier level. The experience was much nicer than our previous stays at the casinos in the Indio area, and about 15 degrees cooler for this time of the year. We would have no problem staying here again. The price reflected is actually zero, but of course you don't factor in what's spent at the casino. They also have casino shuttles that occasionally come through the parking lot, but it's not a long walk from the parking lot to the casino and restaurants. - James T

This is a big parking lot behind the casino. I followed the signs to "RV Parking" and that isn't the overnight parking. The shuttle van drove up as we pulled in and cheerfully guided us to the correct lot. He told us we could stay as long as five nights. There is a dumpster available. There are train tracks in the area, but far enough away that the trains were barely noticeable. When you sign up for a player's card in the casino, each of you gets a card good for $10 in the casino restaurants. This is a very convenient stopover along I-10 just west of Palm Springs. - Denali

I was one night at this park. It happened to be fogged in so I did walk the area, I could only see about 200 feet.
My site was nice, and spacious in the woods. I was next to a long term renter.
This entire park is nestled in the woods, among trees and boulders. Driving through here in a big RV or with a big trailer is not for the faint of heart. My 24 foot van was no problem.
The road in is a pretty steep hill.
The Rangers that checked me in were very friendly and offered plenty of good advice about navigating the many roads in the park. - StormRunner

Nice wooded park. We were up top near the pool in a nice 50 amp site. Park was fairly empty because it was starting to get cooler. Many things to do in the area and casino's aren't too far away. We enjoyed our week long stay. - acampingfan

Third stay in last 8 years. This is a mountainside park with lots of trees and boulders. Hard to avoid obstacles in a big rig. Came up on a Friday at 3PM check-in time and spent an hour finding a suitable site. First site selected was too sloped to allow Levelers to work. Next site over worked with a little jockeying. Sewer sites are all taken by seasonal members with leases. Dump station tight to get into. Nice cabins. OK for big rigs but perfect for smaller units. Very few 50 amp sites also taken by seasonals. Wonderful wilderness camp near to charming town of Idyllwild. Trip up the mountain is not for the squeamish. Worth the trip. - Cochise

We reserved our site online. It was difficult getting the trailer in due to the angle of the road to the spacious site. After that feat was accomplished we enjoyed our stay there. I would definitely come back to camp here but choose a site that works better for our trailer. The location can't be beat. Loved the break from the heat being in the mountains. - arteacher

We were only able to be here one night while traversing the country from Orlando to LA. Very pretty place to be. We intend to come back for a week. The town of Idyllwild is just outside the park and looks like great place to check out. It took us an hour to get up the mountain and an hour to get down. Fairly steep with a winding road. The road provides turn outs every couple of miles so you can allow the faster vehicles, not towing a trailer, to pass. - Pietrzyk

Awesome park. Walk to downtown Idyllwild. Stayed in Sp-26, now a full-HU site w/sewer. The other electric sites are being upgraded and most are now 30amp. Lots of shade and growth, well spaced, semi-private. Very pleased, will stay here again !! - Nevada Nick

Made better time than expected so started calling for reservations when got near Palm Springs area. Either facilities were closed for the weekend or didn't answer the phone so were glad to reach a real person. Unfortunately directions provided were very vague even when called the second time for more details so we were very glad when we found it. Luckily I had been given the gate code. Thankful for tall trees giving shade as it was 106 at arrival. Pool was in full sun so couldn't enjoy it. Very clean bathroom with a ledge preventing water from flowing into drying area. Only negative is train noise ongoing through the night. - RetiredUSN

This park is amazingly clean. The first time we ever stayed here it was so dry and brown (due to the water shortage), but over the last few years it is a lot more green. Very clean and the pull thru spots are nice and private. We like the side where the pools are and not so much the overflow camping. It was fine, but we really like it on the other side. We've stayed in multiple spots and have always been happy. There is a commuter type train that runs every 10-15 minutes at times which can be annoying, however, at least it's not like a freight train that honks it's horn all the time. Our pets love it here too, some cute little fenced in dog runs. If I remember there is a large one on the side where the storage is. The pools are beautiful, there's a family pool and an adult pool, there is also tennis and golf there. I really do love staying here, unless it's like 115 degrees. - Maxandginger

This is so convenient to stay. Big beautiful pool. No fenced in Dog Park when we were here. They had one week before they closed for the season, so the park was fairly empty. The sites are rustic and you must play seek and find for a good one. They are long but not well kept and not even. We stay for the convenience and pool. - godoit

This park was once a date orchard and spacing between sites is governed by where the trees are growing. Due to a drought situation, the sites are mostly dry (dusty) dirt and paved RV parking area. Staff is very helpful and friendly, but I thought this was an over-priced stop on our cross country trip. Sites are a mix of pull-thru and back-in and are not assigned, just offered on a first come, first served basis. - Dunwoodyradio

This park was a dump! Very dirty, a homeless encampment along one side (staff at gate told to us to stay away from that area as things from RVers have been stolen), very, very tight turning, making it almost impossible going around campground, as well as trying to turn into a campsite with our 35' FW! Wish we would have listened to others about the overall condition of this park! - CJ2263

If you're looking for luxurious sites with plenty of room for tents and toys, this place is going to be tough for you. If you want to be in the Palm Springs area and be surrounded by date palms, this is the spot. We've stayed here a few times with our Thousand Trails membership. When you enter the park, sites to the right are back-ins and are 50amp FHU. Sites to your left are pull thrus and 30 amp FHU. We've stayed in both sections and like them equally. There can be road noise as the park is beside the interstate. If you're off the road a little, we've found it not to be a bother. We never used the pool or spa. The bath houses are nice. The staff has always been super nice to us. - ppalmer21

Not really a full review after only 24 hours here, in the winter, but the campground is quiet and looks clean and well-maintained and I'd definitely return.
There are some things I wanted to mention because I did not see them elsewhere:
(1) Verizon service is good throughout the whole park.
(2) This park is not really in Banning itself, but 12 miles up the winding mountain road toward Idyllwild. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is not slightly scary to get to.
(3) Dig out your jack pads before you come, because the sites are asphalt (wish I'd planned ahead!)
(4) The sites are laid out in an unusual pattern, with groups of both back-in and pull-thru sites in short "nodes", with lots of grassy spaces between nodes. It strikes me that this is one of the best arrangements I've ever seen for family groups with multiple RVs, or small groups traveling together.
(5) The sewer connections are exactly 3" in diameter and threaded on the outside. I had nothing - including my 4-in-1 slip adapter - which would fit these. I guess you need a rubber seal connector and that's the only thing that works? Just come prepared.
As with Thousand Trails parks, you pick your spot. But when I called the office to give them my site number, they refused to take it over the phone. She said I had to give them that information in person?!
I have no toad and it's a long walk back, so I guess they'll have to live without it. That's been my only negative experience here. - Karen On The Road

Very clean park with over 800 camping spots, two pools one for children and one for adults, bar, resturant and snack bars at each pool. I dont recommend camping here in August due to the heat. We will be back. - snarlin

This is a membership park. It's in a great location, a huge campground, plenty of area for walking, lots of trees and grass, plenty of birds if you like to put out feeders, nice sized spaces with good wifi (for a fee). One of our favorite spots when in California. It's steep and winding getting to and from the park, but worth the trouble to get there. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

There were no reviews on this place so took a chance as it was close to friends who winter in the area. It is actually not an RV "resort". It is a 40 acre Park Model/mobile home park that contains abodes of various states of repair and vintage from new park models to old vacant mobile homes. The RV spots are located in a small section in the back corner of the park - 36 fairly narrow spots on 2 streets with sites that are not laid out very well & have overgrown vegetation. It is NOT big rig friendly. We were in site T-9 and it was the most challenging spot we have ever had to back into as the road is not very wide. Not sure how the RV section came to be as they do not cater to the needs of an RVer at all - limited office hours, slow response to inquiries, minimum stay of 7 days, no assistance if you need anything (we had to trim branches to fit into our spot, 50 amp service at post was faltering and had to switch to 30 amp - no one came to fix it for our remaining 3 days). You also need to arrange & pay for your own cable service - minimal OTA channels, one in English. Electric is extra, even for 7 day stay. After $100 deposit they mail you a check for any remaining funds, office staff had no idea what the kwh charge would be. Weekly rate is $150 w/o elec. rate I listed was a guess including elec. Positives- inexpensive place to stay in a very nice part of Palm Desert. It is located on highway 74 2 miles uphill from El Paseo in the foothills of the San Jacinto/Santa Rosa mtns. Some RV spots have nice views of the mountains. Park is very quiet and feels safe - fenced in with locked gate at night. Small pool area looked nice. For a smaller rig just looking for a place to park & you won't be spending time there it may be ok given the cheap price. - Nautical Wheelers
