The staff & campers are friendly. The sites are tight and some are filled with burrs. (watch out doggies) On Saturday, we spent most of the day at Joshua Tree National Park. This campground is a good base camp for exploring the area. The freeway is close to the campground. Also, I heard a train going by during the day & at night. Watch for wind alerts when driving to Palm Springs. I enjoyed so many things about this resort. I like talking with the staff and other campers.I had a good laugh seeing a public pay phone in the pool area. I enjoyed walking the perimeter of the park. Swimming in the pool & hanging out in the spa with the friendly campers. Its very calming to look at all the palm trees in the park. Overall, I would like to come back here and city campground. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Things to do are day trips to Joshua Tree National Park, Salton Sea, Borrego Springs, Metal Sculptures, Slots, jeeping trails, hiking, shopping, farmers markets.

We come here 2-4 times each winter for a couple weeks at a time. 50 amp side seems to be pretty solid for power, then again it is pretty full during Dec-Feb when air isn't needed much. Once the temps start climbing the place empties out a lot. Limited shade from Palms but they do help. If park is more empty than full and winds come the sand will be an issue. Park is close to everything, including freeway! Rate reflects member. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed two weeks and gradually got used to the park being smack dab on I-10, surrounded on three sides by commercial establishments, close to the train track, and located in a legally farmed date palm orchard, with tight sites and periodic dust storms. The staff was super friendly, as were most of the campers we met while out walking. The facilities were some of the best for TT parks. Great library and lots of activities. Close to shopping and restaurants. Would have stayed longer except for the use restriction during peak season. Here's a tip: If you don't absolutely have to have 50 amp, find a site on the 30 amp side. All roomy pull-throughs instead of tight back-ins.

Sites are VERY tight. Streets are narrow, and palm trees separating sites make backing or pull through sites difficult to get in and out of with a 30' trailer. If windy, sand storms can kick up. After a morning of sand storm activity, we had 1/2 an inch of sand/dirt caked on our truck/trailer. Our shore plug post arced when plugging in, so the maintenance man came (within five minutes!) to fix it, and we were good to go. At the back in sites, we couldn't use as our electric plug cord wasn't long enough to plug into the shore plug (which is located at the back of the sites). Pull through sites have the shore plug set up on the side of the sites. Due to freight train traffic and I-10 noise, it's best to try and get a site as far north in the campground as possible. If you choose a site close to the freeway, it's definitely noisy. Because of the above, we rated this park an "8". Otherwise nice park with very active residents/campers (daily activities). Newly remodeled bathrooms with great water pressure in showers (so we just used their bathrooms). Very friendly staff! Close to shopping. We used our Verizon smartphone 'hotspot' for wi-fi, and had no problems staying online. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Really tight getting into and out of the back-in sites. And if you want 50 amp it has to be the back-in sites. They could take out some of the palm trees and make things easier. Windy the whole time and lots of sand blowing through. Not our favorite TT park. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest TT parks where we have stayed. I gave it a 9, only because we could not get our 40 ft motor home into the 50 amp sites due to the palm trees. We tried two sites, then gave up and went to a 30 amp pull through, which was a nice site. We enjoyed our stay and will return to this park in the future. The Rangers were very nice and extremely helpful. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I really like this campground and have stayed here several times in the past and look forward to staying here again. The sites are level and come with a palm tree or two and a picnic table. The sun through the palm tress is stunning, and, yes, there are lots of palm trees - and they make parking into either an obstacle or a challenge. We have only a 35' rig, and thus, they are challenges. There is a pool, pickle ball courts and pool tables. It is more a campground than an exclusive resort, and that is part of its charm. The other part is being in Palm Springs where there is an abundance of hiking trails which is what we look for when we come. We have Verizon cell phones and hotspot and have no trouble with either.

I had forgotten how much fun it is to not panic at the appearance of the "coziness" of this park! But, despite the thousand palm trees (one of two between each site) - and thus the name of this Palm Spring "suburb" - it really is OK to get around; even in a 38 foot, 5th-wheel and long-bed truck. The rate indicates we are TT members. This is a busy place in November after the snow-birds arrive, but pleasant. Bathrooms 7 of 10. Verizon 3 bars of 5. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We just left this park today. We are Thousand Trails members and therefore free for us to stay here. We left anyway and paid somewhere else. I understand that Thousand Trails members can stay here at no cost and that is a good deal, but frankly I was a bit surprised by this park and the high ratings other posters have left. If you are a TT member, have a rig of about 30' or smaller, and can stand a BLAST of noise then this may be the park for you. When I booked I knew it was on the freeway and so I should have known what I was getting into before going here. I just did not anticipate the full effect of I 10 with it's constant din. And there is the trains. LOTS of trains. Many many trains. For me the immense noise ruined the experience. We would never stay here again even if noise were the only problem. It is not. This is Palm Desert and it is very hot here even at the end of April. Like 100. Unless you have a small RV 30 amps is not enough to keep you cool. 98 percent of the pull through sites are 30 amps. There are lots of back in sites with 50 amps. The only problem is that if you have a big RV and do not have the nerves of Evil Knieval you are going to be really really nervous getting into these back in sites. I am a pretty good driver and usually have no problem at all backing into sites. The very big palm trees at the corner of every site had me spooked. I could not find a site I felt comfortable backing into. A good thing about this park is that as usual there are very nice employees here that will help you. They found me the very last pull through site that had 50amps. Naturally it was also the site closest to the freeway and very nearly the closest to the trains. If I were paying to stay here I would have rated it a 1. I will never stay here again. That is until my hearing is poor. And I don't mind 100 degree heat. So likely I will never stay here again.

Sites are tight between Date Palm trees. Pull through sites are long with plenty room for tow car parking. Back-in sites are more crowded as you are backed up close to your neighbor. Freeway noise unless park far in back.Pool spa clean with right temps. Showers had tile floor and walls glass doors with large changing room with a separate locking door. Lots of activities including pickle ball courts/ horseshoes/billiards/basketball (bent rim). We drove out to Joshua Tree about 45 min away for the day hiking around beautiful National park. Lots to do nearby Palm Springs including shopping, casinos,Tramway, museums and a popular weekly swap meet at College of the Desert campus I think was the name that had good deals.This resort very popular with snowbirds with very little turnaround for weekend campers to get in.

We are members of Thousand Trails so the price reflects this membership. We have always enjoyed camping here and will continue to make this a stop on our winter travels. The campground is typical Thousand Trails: lots of activities, nice facilities (is there anything prettier than the rows of palms throughout the campground?), close to everything and full of friendly people. The campsites are a bit close, but that is not a problem. The campsites are mostly level, have a picnic table, and you can choose whether you wish back-in or pull-through. Because it is a big campground, you can get your daily walk in just by walking through the streets. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

An absolutely beautiful place with campsites laid out in a date palm orchard. Some sites are very tight, but we found a large and long pull through site that we enjoyed. Some noise from nearby I-10 and a railroad across the highway, but it didn't bother us. Lots to do in the area, and the winter weather is spectacular. Very friendly staff and many activities in the park. Nice swimming pool, family lodge, and other facilities. This is a membership campground,and we stayed here as members.

Bright, shinny, clean, close, full. A nice TT park that everyone must like as getting into it is tight. Getting in, reservation available wise and the max the space available. And individual sites all nice in a row with Palm trees at each site. Most sites are back in sites. Rest rooms clean. If you like to hike check out Indian Canyon trails over by Palm springs, about a half hour away. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

TTN Palm Springs is handy to the freeway, and there is a combination of drive-through and back-in sites. The Preserve has Date Palms growing all over the site, and they do sell dates at the Ranger Station. There are 2 Pickle ball courts and the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are all grass or sand but the roads are paved, with paved patios on some sites. Golf is available here with variety and good pricing, a little research will lead you to a good round of golf. This Preserve is handy to many different points of interest: Salton Sea and Joshua Tree NP, for instance. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
