47 Parks near Palm Springs, California
Dec 2015 - $55.00
If you want to stay right in Palm Springs, this is the one choice available. It's a block from the BUZ line which is a free trolley that runs through the town every 15 minutes 11 am to 1 am, Monday -Thursday and is air-conditioned and pet friendly. The park is adult only, except from April 15 thru October 15 when kids are welcome.
As others have pointed out, the sites are not deep and there are no drive throughs. It is astonishing how large 5th wheels and class A motor homes are shoe-horned into sites together with accompanying vehicles. We had no trouble pulling in with our 24 foot Class B Airstream Interstate.
The high hedges between sites afford unexpected privacy. WiFi Is adequate for email and browsing online, but not for streaming. Lots of washers but only two dryers, so plan ahead if you want to use the laundromat.
The manager is extremely helpful and friendly.
All in all, this is a smaller nice park that has a ten-star location. - Bobshoe

Very friendly park generally but some Canadians who are very territorial and cliquish. As in a lot of cases when they return year after year they have their "friends" and they are not open to meeting new people. Other than that the park is a great location to downtown PS. In front of the park is a motel which is a release point for prisoners on a parole program. There were fights, shouting, screaming and lots of loud noises coming from the motel. We didn't mid it as it was kind of entertainment. Word of advice though. Don't get a site backing onto the motel! - RV Dog

This is a really hard park to rate because so many things are great about it, but it has one big problem. First the good: great location near Palm Springs downtown, very helpful and friendly management, nice facilities, a decent amount of activities, friendly people. The challenge is, as the last reviewer stated, the sites are short and narrow (made worse by the hedges between all sites) and we felt as though we were camped in a deep well. I was parked as close to the electric post as my slides would let me and I could almost reach out from my front door and touch the hedge on the other side. Backing in was VERY challenging for our 32' fiver. Since the sites are so small, there is nowhere to park except in the street along with everyone else. After two months of this we felt like we had really had enough. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of options close to Palm Springs, but if we come back to the area next year, we will likely swallow hard and pay the price to stay at another park. - MrSunshine

What a gem in a beautiful part of California. The wind can be bothersome and gusty. However we had more days with no wind or a slight breeze than windy days. We spent 5 months at this park and the rate is the average cost including electric and propane. The only problem I saw was not enough washer and dryers at the park. However this never caused me personally a problem. Park is run by a great group of workers who make sure it is clean and quiet. The average grocery store or gas station is less than 5 to 10 minutes from the park. There are so many great places to eat (local places) in Palm Springs which is 15 to 20 minutes away. This area has all the big box stores and chain restaurants anyone can think of. I enjoyed my lot that faced north where I could enjoy 70 to 80 degree days and look at snow covered mountain peaks. Joshua Tree National Park is 30 to 45 minutes away depending on which entrance you use. - illini777

Nightly rate based on our monthly rate. We are still here and can't wait for our monthly rental to end. This Park is clean but only has 4 washers for the entire park, due to sewer limitations. It is amid all the windmills so is very windy and I mean verrry windy. The pictures on their website are all taken to avoid any indication of the windmills. Also, it is very far from town. We are always heading to town for groceries, etc. Nothing to do out here near the park. Can't wait to leave! - surefoot

This is a very nice park and we especially liked the size of the lots. The pools are nice and they have pickle ball, tennis courts and a putting green. The residents are friendly and the office staff friendly and helpful. They could use more activities for the residents because this is a destination park and people spend a few months at a time here. We highly recommend the fantastic Saturday morning breakfast for only $5.00. Very close to downtown Palm Springs and easy access to freeway for more extensive shopping. The wind is wild but they can't be held responsible; first clue are the hundreds of wind turbines just across the street. Verizon works well as does Bell ExpressVu. We will return when in the area. - Carly

I stayed here for 1 month and left ASAP! This is a disgusting place. Fully equipped with corrupt sleazy management and all the white trash, drug trafficking you can handle. Do yourself and others and don't experience this place. - daveer

Level but small site, barely large enough for RV. Very bureaucratic typical of large company. Staff tried to be helpful, but started disconnecting toad at bad place although asked not to, and wasn't facile with back in guidance. Won't stay here again, mostly due to site too small. - MSTraveler

Our first time here, top notch all the way. Tall vegetation between sites. All with concrete pad. Clean paved streets lined with Palm Trees, many with lights. This is the most dog friendly park and most friendly campers too.
They have live music and free beer and wine on Wednesdays next to the pool. Who does that nowadays????????.
There is also a nice 9 hole golf course on premise.
The dog parks have lawns and palm trees. - Internetputz

Great place to stay, exceeded our expectations. We spent a few days here on our way home, wished we could have stayed longer. RV sites are together between two streets (backins), primarily a park model facility. Site was good-size, with tall oleander bushes between sites adding to privacy. Sites were staggered slightly, with sites on one street half-way between the sites behind, also adding to the feeling of privacy. Roads are paved, level gravel sites with concrete patio. Fantastic fenced dog parks, everything neat and clean. Quite and peaceful oasis. It is winder in Desert Hot Springs than on the other side of the freeway. We will return. - SW Rick

This is an unusual park because it is combined with a mobile home park where people live permanently. That is actually a good thing. People can ask locals other than a park manager, where good shopping, etc., is. Also, some people leave their rigs here all year (parked in storage) and return by car every year. Most of the RV'ers we saw this winter were from Canada and returned to the area because they loved golf or the local casinos, or just the desert, which was lovely. I also liked that there were walking paths out into the desert behind the park, accessible through the side gate, and the scenery here was real, not landscaped. The park pool is large and the spa big enough for 20 or so people. The clubhouse is nice, too, with a kitchen and room for the nightly card games our group held. It has a pool table and room to read, with books to take out and leave some if you want. A nice, friendly place. Management was not really very friendly, but the people at the park made up for it. It's a short walk to a shopping center with a Vons, K-Mart, and Starbucks, so you don't have to drive everywhere. - dhsbrenda

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

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

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

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
Sep 2014 - $62.00
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

Most people have already left for the season. We were allowed to find any spot that we wanted. Sandy level lots with concrete patios. Nice landscaping with hedges separating the sites. The pump for the pools and spas failed while we were there, so we were allowed to use the pools at their sister property and they were nicer ones than at Catalina. We also found out that Catalina Spa is in the process of being sold and new owners are taken over. DO NOT PAY FOR THEIR INTERNET. It is the worse I have ever used - well not used since connections dropped constantly. - akeller156

You have to pay for the WiFi, is not very good. The pools are a little older but nice, warm, clean and water from the hot springs, they have to cool it down, we loved it. Your site is a back-in, you are parked on sand and some have a little concrete patio. Little shrubs in between. Great pickle ball courts. When we where here most of the snowbirds left. Great place for a week or two. - Traveller Excel

First time to stay in this area. We were met at the gate by a very friendly staff member who told us to find the site of our choice then register at the office and let them know our choice. Very nice campground, sites are nice and level and a decent amount of room at each site. Campground also has organized lunches and dinners. Nice touch if you don't want to cook. - Dedra C
