27 Parks near Salton Sea Beach, California

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

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

The last reviews were from 2013 and we nearly didn't come based upon those. I am glad we changed our minds! Nice staff, very welcoming, clean park, nice pools and good free wifi. Central to Palm Springs activities. Full hook up for $13 RPI rate. We were even invited to a pizza party before we finished hooking up. Nice large sites. - John WD Smith

The camping area is at the edge of a large parking lot. Each site has a square of ground with a tree, picnic table, and the hookups. Showers are in a separate nearby camping area. There is a lot of noise from Route 111. Trains pass by frequently, both day and night, blowing their whistles. Sleeping is a challenge. - Skip'n'Mugs

The Salton Sea SRA has a few campgrounds but this one has full hookups and takes reservations. The Visitor Center was closed to save money but you can walk around outside and read some of the signs and exhibits. The sea was there and a number of people were fishing. The sites have a tree, grill and picnic table but you hookup on the left but your picnic table is next to the site on the right. All the sites in this campground are in a line facing the parking lot and sea. Late afternoon, there were only two RV’s but at the check in booth two others had reservations and were expected to come in. No ranger on duty. It was a self check in. Can’t complain but considering what they charge for an out of state reservation, I would have thought someone should be there. We paid a $30 fee and an $8 transaction fee but then were given a $2 senior discount. The total price was $36. We really enjoyed driving through the canyon road through the Orocopia Mtns (beautiful) and then through the miles and miles of fields growing grapefruit, oranges, grapes, corn, palm trees, peppers and other things driving into Mecca and then down route 111 to the Salton Sea. - gsnakehill

First of all there is no more Wi-Fi in this park! This is the second worse campground we ever stayed at. Close to the sites is a very busy highway with lots of trucks passing even during the night time. And a train is running at least every hour. At 4:30 in the morning we left. The serviced sites are in the back of the main parking lot, paved but narrow and sloped. The hookups are good. No privacy between the sites. The views are nice, the low tide did not smell to much. We will not return to this campground or one in the vicinity because of the noise. - TheSchweitzers

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
Apr 2016 - $70.00
Overpriced, noisy (from trains and street), short back-in space for our 38ft motorhome with 3 slides. Our tow just barely fit. Requested a QUIET, pull-through spot. Got a short, noisy back-in spot instead, with little shade and close quarters to our neighbor. We were in site #9, right over the wall from entrance and the "Frank Sinatra Drive speedway". No table.
No daily newspaper. Could not get one of the 3 main channels on cable during our stay.
Daily trash pickup at site was nice. Staff guided us to our site and helped with back-in. Small pool we didn't use.
This place appears to focus more on their abundant and lovely grounds maintenance than on their RV customer.
We stayed for 3-4 nights. Would not return. Very expensive park at $70 a day. - westie

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

What a nice little RV resort. And I think it deserves to be called a resort. Very clean, great level cement slab sites, very nice pool and jacuzzi, and great staff. After we got set up one of the staff brought us doggie treats for our two dogs and warm fresh baked cookies for us. Very close to I10 but no real road noise. It was great for our one night stay, but we were really tempted to stay longer. Will definitely stay here any time we travel through PS, and we do often. - Roadrunner53

This is an extremely high end RV Resort. We stayed at a Gold Site by the Golf Course. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because they do not have WiFi. Not at all. These sites are all owned and they rent them out when the owners at not here, (the owners get some of the rental money). Our site was the best we have ever had. They had outside BBQ, Stove, Refrig, serving area, large patio table with 6 chairs, lounge chairs and more. Just beautiful. If you can afford it, this is a must do at least once. - RVpartyanimal
Nov 2015 - $105.00
This place is over priced for what you get. I get it, many of the folks here own their site and come and go as they please but in quiet times they rent out their sites. The park had many empty spaces in November and I suppose they get busier after Christmas.
We stayed 4 nights and found this place lacking on several fronts. We stayed in site 104, okay site but worth about 2/3rds of what they charge. Sewer smell....not good at all. On calm nights one would think a place of this caliber would have this under control. Not so. WiFi. Such a simple promise and such a simple service to deliver. It worked for about 2 hours on Monday morning. That's it. The front end promised that they called someone. Didn't work on Tuesday or Wednesday. The minute you check in they pre-authorize a $25 cleaning fee in the event you leave a drop of oil on the pad when you leave! The outdoor kitchen at our site was in sad shape, didn't use it.
If you want to pay the price, your call but plenty of options in the area which are better value....enjoy. - hrw

The park lots are owned by residents who have the option of renting the lots out through the management office, or directly to a renter. I was originally an owner who sold my lot due to what I perceived unscrupulous actions of the HOA Board and park management as applied to renters. If you rent directly from an owner, the park charges an additional $12 a day management fee.
Lot spacing is spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is concrete and features a picnic table. - flsts97

This is an unbelievable RV resort. Absolutely beautiful property with ALL of the amenities. We stayed during the off season and the resort was nearly deserted and 105 degrees during the day. We didn't mind though since we had the entire pool to ourselves. Since this was the off-season, the restaurant was closed and the pool area was dirty but the actual pool was clean. The fitness center, restrooms and remaining grounds were immaculate. - Tony ML

Awesome! Perhaps in the top five of all resorts in the country! Spacious lots. The sites are concrete. Features include picnic, patio, table. - Tucsonbenz
Jan 2015 - $140.00
This is a beautiful resort with huge sites (no pull thrus). The sites are built around a small golf course and a man made lake. The club house is very nice, there are 3 pools, and tennis courts. All sites are individually owned and vary in how they have been improved. It is popular for snow birders and has the most luxury coaches we have ever seen with Provost and Newels being common!! The only down side is you pay extra for the internet, at this price that is strange. Will stay here again. - sjones

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

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

In just a few minutes you are away from the crowds. This little gem was a pleasant surprise. Pet friendly (but there is a $2.00 a day fee) with the water reservoir right outside your site. This recreation area has dry camp, equestrian and electric. We originally were going to stay for 2 days...but added 4 more on. A quiet oasis except for the sounds of the Sheriff's gun range at night. We really enjoyed our stay here. Lot spacing was very close with sunny/open exposure. The site surface was gravel. - SSW69

Very nice, quiet county park alongside a lake. Sites are back-in, packed sand with picnic tables and fire pits. Water and electric only. Wifi only in small gazebo at entrance to campground. Campground hosts and rangers friendly and helpful. Verizon signal good. Would definitely stay here again. - Budapest

We have been full-timing for 8 months and have stayed in about 80 parks during that time. This has been the worst experience ever. The park posts quiet hours from 10PM-7AM but there is nobody here to enforce it. Calling their phone number at night goes to voice mail. We were right next to a group that set up large speakers and pumped industrial music at all hours of the day and night. After 2 nights of disturbances and asking them to quiet down, we spoke to a ranger who told us that we had to take matters into our own hands and call the police if they did not quiet down when we asked them to. So on the third night when we were awoken at 4AM, we called the police after they wouldn't turn off their music. They next day we discovered our motorhome was vandalized. It is ridiculous that the park requires guests to handle issues like this on their own. We understand that it was Coachella week, but we were at RV parks for SXSW, Mardi Gras, and Fantasy Fest and didn't experience things like this because the parks had security and enforced their rules. This place doesn't. Also, their dump station was very clogged the first time we used it and backed up during our black water dump! Even though we told a ranger about it, it was in even worse shape when we used it again a few days later (this time we only dumped gray, at least). They had suggested we use the other dump station but it way down a poorly maintained dirt road and I worried that tire damage to our rig would add more repair cost to the vandalism we already incurred. This park is nothing special and the fact that they expose guests to dangerous, uncomfortable, and unsanitary conditions make it one to avoid. - MitchR

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
