The campsites in this park are pretty small; it's an RV resort in an urban setting. With that in mind, Palm Springs Oasis was a terrific stay for us. We loved being close to town, and everyone in the park was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and required a key to access; the bath house was clean. The laundry room and grounds were too. It's a small RV resort with tight spaces; the location can't be beaten though. - ppalmer21

This RV park has tight spaces, the only outside space you have is behind your tow vehicle or towed which is parked close to the left of your RV. But worse than that--I saw no RV site that was level. Most Class A's had their front wheels 3-6 inches off the ground. And fifth wheels have it even worse if their sewer connection is not at the rear--bring lots of leveling blocks for the hose! I had to buy a 10 pack at WM and I could have used more. Other than that--it is ok. Getting Satellite coverage was good in most spots used a few more to make it level and keep my front wheels supported. I doubt an over 40' rig with 3 slides and a towed would fit. - TedM

Almost left in middle of the night. Went to use the restrooms, only to find a ungodly spider which since I looked up to see it is a camel spider. But to see the coming and goings in middle of the night by the two legged, was afraid to leave our windows open in the rv.
No matter what and how they remodel this park, new owners, they cannot change on what is happening outside their gates with the once great Salton Sea. It's dwindled down to a puddle, quicksand no fish and only dead or aging birds and people that either are too old or not enough money to move. Very sad to see and hear on how great this place had been at one time. I visited this same park in the '70's and it sure has changed. I guess drugs even made it out to the deserts. - SaltonCityBanchee

This is an older park, but still pretty nice - if in need of some maintenance & modernization. Garland, one of the park managers, bent over backward to take care of me after I experienced electrical & water issues at the site I was originally given. The sites are pea gravel and very level. Water pressure & electrical service at the second site were good, but sewer odor from the septic vents scattered throughout the park was occasionally unpleasant. Also, sites only have one water connection each. That said though, overall this is a nice park with an amazing staff, nice amenities, great access to local wilderness activities, and easy rig access that just needs a little TLC to rate a top score. - pantherjeep

This is hands down the park with the friendliest and best staff and the most welcoming fellow camper community we have ever seen. In our experience it even tops the well known hospitality of the Escapee parks.
We arrived to stay a few nights and ended up staying two months! Monthly rate for a full hookup pull thru site on fine gravel is 325$ plus electric which was a total of 125$ in our case. If you want it any cheaper you have to boondock in the desert. But there won't be any WiFi which was included and mostly worked reasonably well.
We first went from a two night stay to a week and then to a month and in both cases the office staff honored our previous payment which is not very common.
The park has changed ownership a few times in the last years and no owner was willing to spend money for maintenance let alone invest in some renovation or improvements. Therefore the park has a pretty rundown appearance and we heard some stories about electrical issues. However, the management works hard to keep everything clean and resolve any issues immediately.
Our site was hassle free, very level and with good and stable hookups. The management kept an eye on leaving every other site empty to help with privacy. During our stay in December and January the park was only about 20% occupied.
We joined most of the dinners in the clubhouse for the excellent food and the friendly people. We got quite a few invitations to join some of the ongoing excursions or other events. Despite being about twenty years junior of the average other camper around we made a lot of new friends and felt very welcome and well integrated in all kinds of activities.
Lots of the campers we met return to this park for many years and we will join them in doing so.
One thing can be awful though: the smell from the Salton Sea being a mixture of dead fish and sewer can ruin your camping experience. That depends on the wind which mostly keeps the stench away but not always. - TheSchweitzers

This is an outstanding RV park right on the western shore of the Salton Sea. It's quiet, comfortable, and convenient. If you're an off-roader visiting Truckhaven and have an RV, this campground is for you - there is direct trail access right from the campground property. Or, if you are an Ultralight pilot, they have you covered too with a smooth, wide dirt strip between the park and the water! I stayed here for the first time this year, and couldn't believe what I've been missing. Dry camping/boondocking for the annual TDS Desert Safari? Not anymore! - pantherjeep

Please read other reviews that talk extensively about all of the amenities here. It's for sure a very luxury type of resort place to stay. I'm only here for a few nights enroute elsewhere. The reason I'm posting this review is just to highlight something that was deeply disturbing to me during my short stay. Good news: you get to chose if you want a site surrounded by grass or one surrounded by gravel. I chose grass as I have been camping in the desert for the last few weeks and have two dogs and it was very luxurious to have them be able to play on the grass. The two dog park areas are wonderful amenities to have here. The downside, as I discovered, is that it takes quite a lot to keep the perfect grass growing and in good condition. We are, after all, in the desert. I think they mow, blow and edge maybe three times a week. Unfortunately for the two days I've been here so far, I have been subject to the constant droning sound of either a leaf blower, lawnmower or edger. I don't know how else to suggest they manage all of this grass but it virtually unbearable. It started at around 10 this morning and I can still here some version of leaf blower, mower or edger in the distance as late as 2:00 or thereabouts. It was about three hours at a time or more just in my immediate vicinity. Again, great place, if you like gated, resort type places but I found this lawn maintenance thing to be really difficult to bear during my short stay. When I called the office to ask about it, they offered to move me to a gravel site but not worth it for one last night. In addition, they also have to mow, blow, and edge the public areas so even those in the gravel areas will be subject to some degree of disturbance from the effort. Thought it would be fair warning to those seeking a very nice place to stay. thanks. - karwask

Large, well-maintained park with 252 FHU RV spaces and 8 cottages. Most RV sites are back-ins, but there are 15 pull throughs. Sites are grass or gravel with side by side concrete pads for your rig and tow vehicle and a sitting area in between (pull through sites don't have a separate tow vehicle pad). Perimeter sites back up to a residential neighborhood and can be noisy (i.e. loud music, barking dogs, etc). We stayed in site 251, an interior premium gravel site with a level concrete pad. Several types of sites are available at this park (see photos), which vary in pricing. Interior roads are paved, wide and easy to navigate. No picnic tables or fire rings provided. Gated entrance/exit, and check-in packet was waiting for us outside the gate when we arrived at noon. The office was only open from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and closed on Sunday, but I believe they have expanded hours during peak season. No store, but the office sells hats, t-shirts, ice, drinks and ice cream. There is a large building on one side of the park with showers, restrooms and laundry (8 washers and 6 dryers) which was cleaned daily. The park also has 8 newly remodeled private shower/toilet combinations near the office as well as another laundry area. There are small trees on the property, but the park is mostly open with no shade. Park has great amenities including two large pools, two large hot tubs (one not working, staff said someone stole the heater), several dog parks, clubhouse, billiard room, fitness center, horseshoes, pickleball courts and large outdoor seating area with fire pits. The park is next to an ambulance/fire/police station next door, so there are sirens going off intermittently. Expect occasional noise from a nearby train. Daily trash pick-up at your site. Utilities worked well but were placed at the rear of the site. No cable provided, but plenty of OTA channels. Verizon service was very good. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would return. - RVIN 24-7

I was given a FHU concrete pull/thru with gravel between sites. There was plenty of room for my 42' 5th wheel and truck to park. The roads in the park are easy to get around in. I used my dish for TV and the wi-fi worked well. There is 10' between sites where I was located. The park has big commercials washers to use at $1.50 a load. The bathrooms and laundry are neat and clean. - Piperflyer 235

We stayed two nights two weeks apart. Both times we stayed at the far edge away from the freeway and did not hear any freeway noise. There are street/flood lights that provide enough light to walk your dogs at night and see what is going on around you. You can park close to the road along with most other campers or stay further out on the fringe and keep some space between you an others. There was no problem finding a flat spot to park, and our neighbors were quiet. I like this parking lot for one or two night stays and will use it again. - AGBAT

This huge parking area is a handy stop that we used overnight when having our RV serviced nearby. We're told that some people stay here a month or more and set up picnic tables etc., and no one keeps track of who comes and goes. Plenty of room. There's nothing but a huge packed-dirt lot (with the casino a short walk away) so it's not for us except to tide us over for a night or two, but it's great for that. And at free it saved us roughly $50. - John Mosley

We camped here for two nights. The parking area is a gravel area across the street from the casino. This is just a parking area which has signs "No Overnight Camping" but when you call security at the number listed they say to camp as long as you wish. They do want you to come to the casino and try your luck. There are fine restaurants there. The experience here is totally free dry camping with others camped nearby. There is no dumpster for trash so just take it to your next stop. Since the parking is close to the Interstate, it can be noisy. We would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

We were here for a weekend square dance event. We had "daisy chain" water. We had 50 amp electric with steady service. This is the third year we have stayed here: first year 30 amp service; last year and this year 50 amp. We were parked on a concrete "street" with the power pedestal right beside the concrete.
There is a dump station. We arrived with empty holding tanks and used water conservatively so we did not need to dump before we left.
It is easy to get to the fairgrounds from I-10 even when towing. - skigramp
Jan 2013 - $25.00
We stayed with a rally, so we were in the 30 amp, no water or sewer hook-ups. There were some FHU sites, which we would use if not with a rally. Good place to stay as it is right in town. The FHU sits are between trees and have shade. Would be great for a short stay. - Deniselg

Great overnight stop. Parking in a fairgrounds parking lot so no grass. Power was fine. Fairgrounds staff working the grounds were wonderful. Close to lots of things: Palm Springs, La Quinta, great eating places, shopping. Gate protected at night. Air card excellent. No cable TV but antenna coverage good. Room to ride around the fairgrounds on a bike. Interesting Moroccan/Arabic architecture to the fairgrounds itself. Easy in, easy out. The weather was windy, windy, windy, more than normal they said. We would stay here again. - sparky59

Gated, over 55, no pets, 3 pools park. Well suited for stays of a month or more. Rate entered is based on the monthly rate. Each lot is individually owned and rental can be arranged direct with the owner or by contacting the realtor. We have stayed here through 4 winter seasons (Lot 178) and would not stay anywhere else. Friendly people, beautiful park with all the facilities you need. And plenty of park activities to keep you busy. - GGF

Rate reflects daily rental rate of $30 plus elec. This 55+ park started out as an RV resort many years ago and has now converted to mostly park models as most lot owners abandoned the RV lifestyle. Some lots are available for rent, mostly monthly, some weekly if available. There are instructions and a link on their website regarding how to contact the owners of RV lots available for rent.
Positives - this resort is very clean and well maintained with green grass, Palm trees, flowers, landscaping and water features throughout the park. The going rate here of $900 per month is a lot less than many other higher end resorts in the area so is a good value. We stayed in site 243 which is located among a group of RV sites. Roomy concrete pad right across from one of the 6 pools/restroom/laundry facilities (very clean). The people we met while here were all very friendly. Negatives - This park is on the edge of town, some higher end housing but some sketchy areas nearby as well. There is an open desert area across the street. It gets very windy here and the sand can blow around. Also, this is NOT a dog friendly park. You have to take your dogs out of the front gate to do their business which is not convenient. Our site was fairly close to the front gate but was still a pain. Lastly, for some the esthetics of camping among park models can detract from the overall RV experience. - Nautical Wheelers

This is a very very nice RV park. The grounds are beautiful and there is a gated entrance for security. There are several pools and bathhouses throughout the park. Everything is very clean and manicured. Staff is very friendly. Great Verizon service. This park has a lot of park models that are all well kept. Sites are level cement pads, somewhat narrow, however some are located right on the golf green and even though you may be between 2 park models they feel spacious. People are very friendly. I highly recommend this park. - SNL

I stayed in this resort most of November. The resort is mostly park models. I was told by a friend to contact a local realtor (Sue Greene [email@example.com]). She gave me the names of 4 people who had RV pads for rent. I rented from one of them. A nose-in to a lake. I was pleased with the amenities. I will return. The rate of $23 was based upon a monthly rate of $700. In high season it is more like $1000+ per month. - bradydane2009

Washrooms were cleaned 6 of 14 day stay, and out of hand soap, paper towels and toilet paper for at least half our stay. Seems to be nobody's job to look after the washrooms.
This park operates under different State departments and it becomes easy to blame another department, or say it is not their job. One park gate employee was very friendly, however there were another three that were not of the same kindness towards us as campers. Saw wild life in the park and that was very exciting. Gets a little busy on the weekends and noisier as the park fills up with the local campers. I guess I expect more of a personal experience than most, or at least I hope to. In this case it is more to keep to yourself and carry on with your own plans venturing outside the park for your excitement and relaxation. Take all your own washroom essentials including toilet paper and you should be fine. - curtis rose

We camped at Lake Cahuilla for a week in March. During the week it was quiet except for the constant firing range shooting (sounded like cannons, maybe reverberating off mts). On the weekend it was very crowded with loud music late into the evening and more shooting during the day. You can't kayak on the lake, or swim but there were lots of people fishing though I didn't see anyone catch anything. $2 per day extra per dog. so be prepared to pay extra at the gate for your pets. And they wouldn't honor our Passport America card for the discount. They said you had to use it when Paying online - thought honestly I didn't see the opportunity to do that. Lots of signs saying to stay away from the big horn sheep but at the gate they said they hadn't seen any in a long time. There are trees between the sites to provide a bit of shade which was nice. We probably won't return. - Gina A

It is a regional RV park adjacent to an approximate 5-acre agricultural reservoir that allows fishing, but no swimming or boating. Lovely view overlooking the lake, nestled behind nearby mountains. Water & 50 amp + dump site. - JerryD

Simply beautiful. All sites are individually designed by their owners and the restaurant onsite is outstanding. We had a lobster dinner while we were there and it was great! The only downside is this park is not really very dog friendly. Most all the sites have signage warning dogs away, and there are just a few places you can take your dog. - TomW

Incredible resort! Great par 3 golf course, waterways for electric boats, pools, tennis, fitness center and 5 star restaurant. We renter for an entire season before we bought. Many lots have beautiful build outs with enclosed living areas. Be advised they only allow newer class A RVs - Karens BAM

Thus is the second time we stayed here. This time it was for 4 nights for the Desert Time concert. When we made our reservation they told us there was an additional charge of $40 per night during any concerts at Coachellla Polo Fields. They also said the clubhouse would be closed since they reopen for general use November 1. This is a very nice park with about 400 spaces most are privately owned buy many are available for rent. Next time were in the area we will stay here if it's available. - BillP
