40 Parks near Palm Desert, California
Apr 2016 - $3.00
Thousand trails Rv resort Palm Springs in palm desert.
This is one of our favorite parks.
It's close to everything. And big enough to give the dogs a good walk around the park. They do have a "small dog" park on the property. It would be nice if it was bigger with a double gate.
The swimming pool area has really nice cabanas.
Bathrooms and laundry rooms are clean, I can't remember the exact cost for laundry, I think it was 1.50 for wash and 1.25 to dry. The park has a nice big activity center and a book trade one for one room. Nice staff and campers. The speed limit is 5 mph, the streets are paved, the camp sites are gravel/sand. The park is full of Palm trees and they have some citrus trees.
It is a very popular park during the winter, the weather is beautiful except for the sand storms that pop up sometimes. Rv'ers go there from all over every year.
This park has it all! But most of all they welcome "everyone" and they are very pet friendly, welcoming all dogs, large and small. Which in my book shows a warm and caring staff and company.
And no I'm not an employee of the park or thousand trails. We have a zone pass membership. And may join the full membership later.
Thank you thousand trails for giving so much happiness to all. - Mary_M

We've stayed here before and will stay again - it is one of our favorite campgrounds. We love the trees, the hiking in Palm Springs and the delightful sunshine and warmth. Do the trees present a bit of a problem with parking? Ah, you have to watch them but most people I noticed didn't have any problems parking. If you're concerned, try the pull-thru section on the left hand side. Pull-thru have 30A, back-ins have 50A.
There are lots of activities but most people seem to be enjoying their own. The pool was filled the several times we walked by, the library is nice and has lots of choices and the bathrooms are always clean. Shopping is nearby and the entry-exit from Rt 10 is very easy.
Yes, there is more dirt and sand than usual but it is a drought in southern California and has been for several years. And, yes, the sand will filter in through your closed windows if it's breezy. There. - swike

Roads are narrow, not wide enough for RV's over 33 feet. Only pull throughs open were for handicap, yet the park was full of handicap rigs parked everywhere but in the handicap spaces. The palm trees created narrow spaces and there were several stumps that prevented big rigs to back into spaces. The hook ups separated the back in spaces leaving rigs to need extra long electrical cords and water hoses. This is the worst place we've stayed. - lsduncan

We spent two full winters in this park about a decade ago; it was really nice then. Stopped in recently knowing that most of the park had been converted to condos years ago, but curious what it was like now. We specifically asked for a site as far away from the railroad tracks as possible. We arrived late and instead found that we had been located in the section of the park that was closest to the tracks and very noisy. The rest of the park was nearly empty, so we didn't understand this. In addition, our neighbors in this section of the park were clearly long-term-resident working folks, with laundry hanging out, plywood tacked on their RVs, etc. This section of the park looked more like a low-rent park, rather than the luxury RV resort we had experienced in the past. Our next-door neighbor spent most of the evening running power tools and working on his RV; not the most peaceful for us considering the $82 we had paid. Overall, this once lovely RV resort has hit the skids and we will not be returning. - Blueberry10

We stayed in late June when temps were in the 110 range and the park was about 10% full. We were in the desert to visit family, not as a destination vacation this time of year. We were upgraded when we checked in to a back in site with lots of shade and grass. It was beautiful, and gave us some feeling of relief from the heat. Outside noise was not a problem as our A/C's ran 24/7, and trips to the pool were short and few. The bathrooms and gym look like they were just remodeled and are beautiful and clean. Internet was strong and fast. Dog friendly. Easy on/off freeway and close to just about anything you would want to do in the desert. Gate is locked at night and you are given a code so feels very safe. Utilities worked great. - barbielab

This is a very nice RV Park, however a few odds things I didn't understand. First the Very Good: the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I requested a site change after my first night's stay (too close to the trains) and was greeted by a VERY nice professional young lady who did what she could to accommodate my request. Considering it was the start of Memorial Day weekend with a full park, I was impressed with her attitude and personality. Nonetheless, very impressed with the service. The park is very clean and well kept, but the odd things I didn't understand, there were no picnic tables at any of the sites! Odd for a place in the desert where it is conducive to outdoor eating, we camped with friends and had to eat in chairs outside. The other odd thing was that the water sprinklers came on every night at 10 PM! No warning, each night people who were sitting outside enjoying the warm weekend weather went scrambling to secure their belongings when the water came on. What made this very strange was the fact that the water sprinklers came on again each night around 2 AM. Maybe their way of enforcing quiet time. The pool area along with workout room was very nice, great facility. - Damon campers

After trying to call Bob's RV Roundup for several days and getting only a busy signal, we drove by it today. The campground is closed and fenced off; it looks like they are tearing out the sites. - Ray Z

Convenient park for overnight or short-term stays. Sites are close together but pull-throughs are easily accessible, even for big rigs. Most of the back-in sites around the perimeter appeared to be occupied by long-term residents. Sites are mostly grass with a small concrete patio area. Bathrooms/showers are small and old. The gentleman who works in the office was very friendly and helpful when making reservations on the phone and when checking in. - Ray Z

Not a bad park (has lots of pull throughs), but not a destination, either. Good for a night to squeeze in among the many permanent residents for an overnight sleep and be on your way in the morning. Good cable TV, 30 and 50 amp. service, water and sewer. Just far enough from I-10 not to be noisy, but close enough to jump back on quick. We'd stay here again for an overnighter. - Scott & Karen

Park staff was very friendly and courteous. Assisted us in parking our rig. The laundry facility was very clean. Pool area, card room, and amenities were clean and well maintained. We will stay here again. - Gabby1015

Nice little park right off the freeway. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They assigned us a site against the back wall which is for smaller RV's and I asked (and was given) an interior site as I'm sensitive to noise. I'm glad I did, because even on the interior, I could hear some street noise at night and traffic sounds from the freeway. Everyone in the park is friendly with a lot of snow birds. Cable and wifi worked well, but the pool and jacuzzi were being worked on, so not heated. Our site #20 had a concrete slab, was nice and wide with a picnic table, shrubs on both sides and a small patch of grass. - CoachCathy

The only reason that this park did not get a 10 is because it isn't a luxury RV park. That said, we have stayed at plenty of places that are fancier but we have NEVER stayed at a park that cared more about your experience or put forward more of an effort to make you feel welcome. We checked in after hours but were still greeted and shown to our spot. Once in and set up we got a knock on our door. We were given freshly baked cookies with an apology that they weren't there sooner because the cookies had to cool. Are you kidding me?? How awesome is that? We were just there for one night as we passed through heading to Magic Mountain etc, but they treated us like we were VIP's. The bathrooms are clean and fully stocked with toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant etc. The spaces are flat, big and clean. The location is 2 minutes off of I-10 so it was a perfect spot to sleep for the night. If every RV park worked as hard as this place to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of their guests, RV'ing would be a perfect world! - longweekends

Established RV Park in suburban Cathedral City. Centrally located to "everywhere" in the Palm Springs area. Friendly staff that took the time to unravel our reservation "snaffoo"...OUR mistake...not theirs. Quiet, well maintained park with numerous long-term/snowbird stays which is to be expected in Palm Springs. Cable tv. Concrete pads. Spotless pool and restroom facilities. Will return without hesitation. - CasaRoll

Yes, it's true, the spaces are narrow and tight to get in. However, that's NOT our issue. This RV resort in Cathedral City is now truly NOT what is use to be. The main reason for the LOW rating is simple. The upper management staff couldn't care less about the people who are staying there. Numerous extended-stay residents brought up serious issues with the resort on a daily basis that needed to be addressed. In most cases, NOTHING was ever done to address any of the most serious issues, meaning everything from suspected drug dealers who constantly come and go all day and all night, to free-loaders, to numerous electrical issues, to junk piles of furniture surrounding numerous RV sites. There is NO security at all after 5:00PM. The community room has been closed for the past 4 months while so-called refurbishing has been taking place. There is no scheduled date when it will be available to residents again. It was totally disgusting as many of us watched the scum-bag people that entered the resort at all hours of the day to do what clearly appeared to be illicit drug sales. The maintenance staff even now refuses to clean one set of restrooms because of previous problems with certain residents. No one from top management seems to care what goes on at this RV resort. It's truly sad. This was always a great place to stay in the past, but NOT currently. Hopefully, the issues will be resolved in the future. We will NOT return until ALL of our serious issues are resolved. - Sunset1947

This park is in the city and so you get the racing cars and trucks with the loud pipes but things did settle down at night. The lady at the office was very nice and very helpful. She put us in an easy back-in site. Unfortunately there were ants around the site. The white ant "dust" on the ground didn't seem to be working. It was easy to get in and out, and even though it was a few miles from the I-5, there was easy access. We only stayed one night as we were passing through but it sure was better than WalMart parking lot. - Canadian Adventurer

We whiled away nearly three weeks of winter here and found it fabulous for sunshine and free citrus. Facilities are not super modern, but most peoples' houses aren't either. Bathrooms & laundry room were nice & clean. WiFi was fine; when it got a little slow, our Verizon Hot Spot worked great. Spots are tight (real estate is expensive in Cali!) but we found our neighbors to be super - they really enhanced to our stay! Full calendar of activities offered. Great share-a-book library. Close to many things that make life easy - grocery store, shops, etc. Quiet at night. Friendly staff. We would definitely come back, as many people do year after year. - Jolly Out There

An older park with a relatively crowded feel due to a lack of space between units. It was well kept, residents were mostly long term and friendly. Staff was helpful and efficient. Facilities were a bit small and dated for the size of the park. We were parked almost on top of our friendly neighbours, good that they were. Access was good and sites level. Some turns might be a bit tight for a larger rig. A decent value for the area. Rate was Passport America. - BMonk

Rates for monthly stays ware very reasonable. They allow multiple dogs for those of us who show dogs in the area. Small x-pens are allowed. sites are nice and over half of the park are park models with many Canadian snowbirds. Lots of activities if you are interested. There are 3 pools and two hot tubs. This park is called "Indian Wells Carefree RV Resort" located on Jefferson Street. It is a tight entrance and easy to miss driveway off of Jefferson so take it slow after you cross Hwy 111 (south) as it is a short distance before you come up to the left turn lane to enter the park. Be observant before you make the turn in since the area in front of the office only accommodates room for one long rig at a time before you may hang over onto Jefferson Street. Sites along north wall are okay for 30 ft or less while sites along the south wall may be okay for 34 ft, but if you are longer or have a toad, we recommend the pull through sites. This place fills fast for Cochella and Stagecoach festivals too. - ButterflyDogs

This is a great park. The sites are large, many separated by shrubs. Friendliness is encouraged by a campfire every Sat. night with free pizza provided by Mike Thompson RV. On Wed. they visit a local restaurant and everyone is invited to participate. It is well located close to Palm Springs restaurants and attractions. - Cutter

This old park has bad management that doesn't care about your experience. Shuffleboard unusable due to broken up rough concrete. "Pickleball court" has no fencing and broken concrete. "Dog park" does not exist. Pool was ok. Wi-fi included, but did not work and a source of complaint for everyone except those with their own internet service. Shower stalls had no bench & were old, not very clean and dangerously slippery when trying to dress. I tripped on an unlit speed bump at night and had a nasty fall. We liked the central location and the size of the sites, but the site sand was horribly dirty. Paid$750/mo incl tax. Met nice people, but will never go back. - C Lyttle
Apr 2015 - $48.00
This was a nice park, but not a high end park. We travel with kids and dogs, and we were completely satisfied with our stay. Showers/bathrooms are okay, but clean. The pool and hot tub were awesome! Our lot was fairly flat even though it is a dirt lot. Lots of shade trees and shrubs between most lots. Friendly staff. - RVMom78

Rate is based on Monthly, including electricity. RPR suggests that we review a park even if we have reviewed it before, so I will. This is our fifth year here, and we are coming back next year again. We always stay from two to three months. As I and others have said before, this is a RESORT. You name it and they have it. It is a 55+ park, and so that cuts out some RVers, but those who qualify should come and join us. Like my wife says, "If you get board here, it isn't thier fault." The newest addition is Pickleball. Wonderful game. This goes along with hiking 'club', bicycling 'club', water volleyball, water aerobics, line dancing classes, dance classes, tap classes, golf outings, tennis and many other 'active' activities, along with pool, bocce ball, shuffle board, low (and very low) impact aerobics, for the less mobile, and them things like wood shop, ceramics, quilting, Operation Linus, Bible study, etc.
I have written enough, but not enough. Come join us. - Kalama Traveler

This a resort, not a park. This is our 3rd year that we have spent Feb. & March here. In 10 years of traveling we have not found anyplace that is even close. The people and staff are wonderful. It has everything, pools, workout rooms, carpentry shop and lots of activities. - Ross Brand
Feb 2013 - $37.00
This campground remains a TEN. This is our second year here and we are coming back next year. As all of the other previous reviews have stated, the amenities are first rate. One other thing is that as opposed to some reviews of other parks that have many "full timers", and the "short timers" are ignored or even worse, in this park there is no difference in acceptance between owners of lots and those of us who just rent. Everyone is as friendly as they can be. We are staying in the same spot next year as this, and the neighbor on one side said that he won't be in that space next year and said that he is sorry that we won't be neighbors next year. The price is based on a monthly rate. Hope some of you come to join us. - Kalama Traveler

One of the nicest places we've stayed. The sites are owned by individuals and leased back through an agent. Sites are concrete an have neatly trimmed grass. Our site was across from the par 3 golf course and was beautiful. The roads are all paved and the facilities, pools, restrooms, laundry,etc were immaculate. The small fenced dog runs were adequate at best. - Scott and Lorraine
Feb 2016 - $55.00
We've stayed here a few times and keep coming back. Best value is for longer-stays of a month or more. The "official" rental agency (through ORPS) prefers to rent by the month; private renters may have different policies. You can rent for less time, but they won't reserve for that until the first of the month that you want to rent in. It's a bit cumbersome, but understandable. Seems like there are almost always rentals available, though, so you could just drive up to the door and would have a reasonable chance of getting a spot for short-term. The facilities are really great, as noted in other reviews, and owner-residents seem to be making a big effort to be friendly and inclusive (unlike in the past). It's a beautiful resort. We'd come back for sure. - mlbw

This park has spoiled us. The grounds are immaculate, the facilities & activities excellent. You have to rent from a lot owner, can't just drive up & spend a few nights,
You could spend all your time in the resort, but we highly recommend you take the time to get out and see all the Coachella Valley has to offer. - Our-Wandering-Casa
