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. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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 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.

We were impressed with the amenities offered at this park and wished that we had more time to stay. The sites are close together and not much privacy between them. However, the staff was extremely friendly and there is a lot to do there. We would definitely stay here again and for more than one day.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the Palm Springs area. We stay at least six weeks out of the year here. We have a 44 ft. motorhome. Although some of the turns are a little tricky, we manage them and there is plenty of room to back in to our sites. Some are bigger than others, so you have to choose carefully. The staff has always been friendly to us, but we have not had any complaints to register. The only problems we have had is parking in the right place to get satellite. The palm trees make it a little difficult. Some of the sites are uneven. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park at first glance with all the towering palm trees. However, turns are very tight, sites are not very level and have narrow parking area between the trees and sewer hookup. Staff at the gate were great. Cannot say this about the manager. She was rude, caustic and bordered on being verbally abusive when my husband approached her when the internet went down, to ask if the server was down. Since the temperature in Palm Desert was 102 degrees, and her attitude was anything but pleasant, we cancelled 3 days of our stay here and left the following day.

We stayed here for a few days, but it seemed cramped and the interstate was so close,m that's all I heard. Its a good stop off for the TT members, if sites are available. Have to reserve ahead in the winter, that's for sure. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A "membership park" that reflects the standard expected of 1000 Trails preserves. The magnificent date palm trees make maneuvering big rigs a bit difficult but it is an excellent park. Very friendly and courteous staff. Walking distance to groceries and drugstore. Lots to see and do in the vicinity. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite winter park. Everyone is super friendly. The pool is heated to a comfortable temperature. As mentioned, some sites are tight but most are not. There are many pull through sites that are very easy to pull into. The weekend breakfasts are great. The location is fabulous. What else can I say? We love it.

Conveniently located off Highway 10 and close to shopping and the sites of the Coachella Valley, this is a very popular Thousand Trails park. In fact, it can be difficult to get into during the season. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park and facilities are also well maintained. About 1/2 of the sties have 50 amp service, which is unusual in the world of Thousand Trails parks! Some sections of the park are difficult to maneuver through in a 40 foot motorhome. This could be eased a bit by the removal of a few trees, in particular the ones by the pickle ball courts. We camped at Thousand Trails - Palm Springs RV Resort in a Motorhome.
