May 2016 - $40.00
Stayed 3 nights in a 45 ft. motorhome. Long concrete pull-thru with space for toad. Very clean and spacious baths/showers/laundry room. This time of year the place is nearly empty. 25 miles to Palm Springs and lots of activities. This is an excellent "home base" for day trips to the Coachella Valley area. - BruceVero

Nice, well kept park. Grass and concrete patios at many sites. Gravel pull-thrus in another area for a little less $.
Lots of activities. Weekdays, free waffles, coffee and juice at the clubhouse. These aren't Eggos, they are fresh made and tasty. Convenient to area attractions.
I would stay there again. - Go often

We just stayed for one night while passing between Phoenix and LA, but the park was very easy to get in and out of. When I entered the office to register, they had a little board welcoming each party - names in alphabetical order - that was coming that day, which was a nice touch.
A bit noisy at night - high-powered street bikers seemed to rule the surrounding roost, and a busy (sirens coming and going) fire station is right across the street. - coffeetime

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
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
Apr 2011 - $25.00
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

Please note, there is no RV rental for this site for January and February - FulltimerFun
Jan 2014 - $25.00
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
Mar 2016 - $33.00
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
Mar 2015 - $30.00
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
Oct 2010 - $23.00
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
Jan 2016 - $30.00
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
Jan 2016 - $22.00
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
Apr 2015 - $51.00
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

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
Jan 2015 - $100.00
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
Mar 2016 - $22.00
We stay at this Elks Lodge every time we are in the area for a few days. Primarily because it is close to people we are visiting, close to activities we enjoy, and you can't beat the price! The hosts are always very friendly and accommodating. It is asphalt/gravel parking and the spots are pretty close together. We have a 40 foot rig and have never had a problem finding a spot that works. We will stay there again next trip. - Sally Chew
Jan 2015 - $22.00
Camping is restricted to current Elks members. Water and Electric Sites. On-site dump station. Only a few of the 30 sites can accommodate big rigs. There is an overflow area for dry camping. Extremely busy Jan-March. Reservations are allowed. Call lodge to get the current camp host's number. No reservations needed off season. - lmg
Dec 2013 - $22.00
This campground is open to current Elks members and their guests. A host is on site and offers parking assistance, and suggestions regarding local activities and attractions. The lodge was closed during our visit. The sites near the lodge are full hook-up, but they are not level and the sewer connection location does not provide adequate slope. Several dry camping sites are available on blacktop. Some E/W sites are back to back on gravel, but if the campground is not busy, as when I visited, they become pull-throughs. Other E/W sites are on blacktop and provide adjacent parking for tow vehicle. There is a dump on site. Wifi was advertised as being available in the campground, but we could not connect. The host told us that something was wrong with the antenna. There is no stay limit and you can call ahead to check availability. We would stay here again as it is quiet, a good location and a real value compared to other campgrounds in the area. - 15243
Mar 2016 - $137.00
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

We whiled away nearly three weeks of winter here and found it fabulous for sunshine and free citrus. Facilities are not super modern, but most peoples' houses aren't either. Bathrooms & laundry room were nice & clean. WiFi was fine; when it got a little slow, our Verizon Hot Spot worked great. Spots are tight (real estate is expensive in Cali!) but we found our neighbors to be super - they really enhanced to our stay! Full calendar of activities offered. Great share-a-book library. Close to many things that make life easy - grocery store, shops, etc. Quiet at night. Friendly staff. We would definitely come back, as many people do year after year. - Jolly Out There
Feb 2016 - $25.00
An older park with a relatively crowded feel due to a lack of space between units. It was well kept, residents were mostly long term and friendly. Staff was helpful and efficient. Facilities were a bit small and dated for the size of the park. We were parked almost on top of our friendly neighbours, good that they were. Access was good and sites level. Some turns might be a bit tight for a larger rig. A decent value for the area. Rate was Passport America. - BMonk
Dec 2015 - $38.00
Rates for monthly stays ware very reasonable. They allow multiple dogs for those of us who show dogs in the area. Small x-pens are allowed. sites are nice and over half of the park are park models with many Canadian snowbirds. Lots of activities if you are interested. There are 3 pools and two hot tubs. This park is called "Indian Wells Carefree RV Resort" located on Jefferson Street. It is a tight entrance and easy to miss driveway off of Jefferson so take it slow after you cross Hwy 111 (south) as it is a short distance before you come up to the left turn lane to enter the park. Be observant before you make the turn in since the area in front of the office only accommodates room for one long rig at a time before you may hang over onto Jefferson Street. Sites along north wall are okay for 30 ft or less while sites along the south wall may be okay for 34 ft, but if you are longer or have a toad, we recommend the pull through sites. This place fills fast for Cochella and Stagecoach festivals too. - ButterflyDogs

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
Mar 2007 - $33.00
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
Aug 2006 - $25.00
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
Jan 2016 - $63.00
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
Jan 2016 - $65.00
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
Sep 2015 - $53.00
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
Nov 2015 - $20.00
So many lovely weeks spent at this gem of a park in the past; alas, it's been sold and there is pretty much zero much needed grounds maintenance. Previous managers still manage and we were overjoyed to see one another. Lots of flies, ants, tall grass. Few campers. Pool heater broken, so no hot tub either. Site pads are dirty. The many days spent at the pool with lots of happy Canadians are no more. One couple pulls together the bonfire at night, and cooks gourmet meals, but they're moving on. Unless major clean-up is done at this once favorite little jewel, we will not be back. - User2084
Oct 2015 - $30.00
Just one night here, but it's on our list for a repeat for sure! Very nice people to deal with at the front office. Appreciated the lovely shower/washroom facilities. A quiet night despite the highway beside us. We didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. Also, there's a laundry available near the washrooms. - carliewired
Mar 2015 - $17.00
Nice park, pond with a fountain in the middle. Pull thru sites or back in. Some sites are water/electric only. Mine had sewer. Orange trees all over the park and we were told to pick as many as we wanted - great juice. The wifi actually worked!! And I wasn't that close to the office. Nice size pool and hot tub. Karaoke once a week with a pot luck before - fun stuff. Pool table, book and DVD swap. Huge TV in clubhouse with cable. Managers were helpful and friendly. Laundry machines nice and reasonable. Stayed a week, above is the weekly rate. - sloopygirl
Mar 2016 - $1.00
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
Feb 2016 - $33.00
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
Feb 2016 - $1.00
The Thousand Trails Palm Desert resort is convenient to the freeway and to shopping and activities in the area. There are also lots of activities to do at the resort.
Because of the drought, there is no watering of the grass and as a result, what little grass there is seems to be turning into sandy areas. If high winds are predicted, be sure to close your windows as the fine sand will cover everything inside (and outside) - and some will come in even with windows all closed!
The palm trees are nice to have in the park, though they do contribute to challenges in getting parked. We parked in one of the pullthru sites which are to the left as you enter the park; we didn't think our 43' motorhome would fit in the back-in sites on the other side of the park. If you have a long rig, you may want to particularly look for a site in the row (or rows) that have 3 palm trees across, versus the ones with 2, as they are significantly deeper.
We tripped the breaker at our site on a Sunday afternoon and couldn't get it reset. A call to the ranger station brought someone over immediately and he changed out the electric hookup in just a few minutes. - pattic777
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
Apr 2016 - $50.00
We stayed here 6 nights with a rally group, then an additional three nights because our truck broke down and took a week to fix. The park is beautiful and well maintained. We also experienced loud live music at the main pool one evening (we moved to the much smaller 'adult' pool - not big enough to do laps, but enough to get cooled off). The exercise room is very nice with a couple of elliptical machines, some treadmills and weights. The park also has a couple of golf 'holes' that you can use to practice chipping and putting. We found the wifi to be very fast, however the park was only 20%-50% full, so the results might be different if the park were full. The sites do not include picnic tables.
The only major drawback we found was the train tracks that run next to the park. Trains come by once or twice per hour. This will bother some people and not be an issue for others. We were in site 600 - mid way between the train tracks and Frank Sinatra Blvd. The sites numbered 2xx are closer to the train track and sites 6xx are further from the trains, but closer to the blvd. Sites lower than 200 are in a much denser area and I don't what the noise is like over there. - Bitbucket
Apr 2016 - $70.00
This RV park has beautiful grounds. The clubhouse and pool area a great for a campground. We were here with a group and the facilities for our group were very nice. We have a 42' class A motorhome. Our site was listed as a premium site, yet it was a back in and barely fit our rig. It was impossible to fit the car in front of it and not have a bit of the Jeep in the street. The wifi was unusable it was so slow. So we used our Verizon personal hot spot, but the reception was only OK. Very large and very nice dog area. Our pooch loved it. Lots!!! of flies though. When you sat down the flies were all over you. Trash picked up in front of your site.
There was a large wall/storage facility between us and the freeway and trains. The wall does lower the sound level, but there are lots of trains that go by. Lots of them. And a constant din and some blast from Interstate 10 which is right on the other side of the train tracks. After five days the noise was getting to me. Thankfully our coach is heavily built with double pane windows so that reduced it quite a bit. But we like to sleep with the windows open. Bring your ear plugs. - RFCN2
Mar 2014 - $30.00
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
Jan 2016 - $30.00
Stayed in one of the full hookup sites. It was level pavement, with table and fire pit. Right on beach 100 yards from water. Great for bird watching. No wifi and decent Verizon signal. Only negative is road noise and trains. Would stay here again. - Budapest
Feb 2015 - $30.00
The rate is for a 50 amp full-hookup site, of which there are only four. The camping area truly is a parking lot, but the full-hookup sites are set up so that you park parallel and do have views looking out at the Salton Sea. However, the Salton Sea is drying up, so it is quite a ways out. Since the Sea is slowly drying and is comprised primarily of agricultural run-off, it has a powerful stench, particularly when the wind is from the west coming off of the lake. There were very few other campers during our weekend visit, and, with the smell, I can see why. Satellite was not a problem since there are few trees. We had strong Verizon voice and 4G data. We would not stay here again because of the smell off of the Sea. - TheJim

I drove past this park the week before and loved the view and location away from everything, so I made reservations for this week. I did not notice the hoards of flies commented on by others. This campground is a bit strange because the RV sites are in a large parking lot. There are only four full hookup sites, but they are facing the lake, and there seems to be room to park sideways so your patio faces the best view. You will need a long electrical cord and water hose, however, if you want to do that. I did not bother to use the sewer hookup, figuring it was just easier to drive down to the visitor center (which is open and staffed) and use the one there. There is a busy train track across the highway, but trains do not bother me. This place obviously gets VERY hot during the summer, but is very pleasant in winter. I will definitely come back here sometime. - judy_online

I stayed at the Cottonwood Campground one night and enjoyed the site and the nearby scenery. It was a close walk to the nightly amphitheater. There are water faucets available. There are no hookups. The campsite was roomy enough. - ArmandV

This is a lovely primitive campsite in beautiful surroundings. It is not big rig friendly, but unlike some previous reviewers we had no problem putting out our slides in one of the back-in sites. It was more than enough for our double-slide pickup camper that measures about 26 feet with the rear slide out. Would definitely like to stay there again. - Pdxjoanne

Very pretty scenery and well tended. The sites are very small and surrounded by rocks and many RVs had a great deal of difficulty trying to fit in. While my small motorhome fit comfortably into a back-in site, I would not recommend the park for rigs that are long, wide, or have slideouts. There is a dump station with fresh water but it's outside the campground. - mockturtle

This park is under new management. It is getting a remodel which was OK with us as we were extended an awesome rate due to that. We had a roomy site with outstanding views of The Salton Sea. The owner and managers were incredible and made us feel welcome. We had our dog with us. I felt safe there and we were in walking distance to a casino and restaurant. We will return soon! - islandforce

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

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

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

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

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
May 2016 - $50.00
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
Feb 2016 - $55.00
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

Sky Valley is a hot springs resort with multiple hot spring pools in two club houses . A neat and clean mostly park model resort with RV sites throughout.Our site was a little tight for a 40 foot motor home side to side because there was a trellis on the patio and bushes and rocks on the driver side. Close enough to Palm Springs and Palm Desert without the traffic. A short drive to Joshua Tree NP. - CGNRG

Absolutely a beautiful park. Many pools with different temps for soaking and relaxing. We have stay here several times for a weekend just to unwind. We usually have the pool area to ourselves, it is so peaceful and relaxing. My favorite pool is one of the large swimming pools that is bath water temp - perfecting for flexible movement, swimming and so enjoyable. They have a wonderful restaurant on sight called Mignon and the food is excellent. Most of the park has permanent residents or snowbirds but they have sights for over nighters. I can hardly wait to go back - those crystal clear pools call to me. Naturally heated by springs and various temperatures, they are delightful. Sights have cement pads but we prefer and ask for a gravel sight. - Celeste T

Free dry camping behind the Patton Museum (website requires a number). Some sites are more level than others. Good satellite and cell phone reception. Walk to truck stop w/ restaurant, gift shop, antique store. Several old army tanks are parked in this desert site, fun to explore. Easy off hwy, all sites are back in but easy enough to maneuver. On site camp manager will sign you in. Nice stop for one night. - lovinretirement

This is a free dry camp directly behind the General Patton Memorial Museum. Indio is the nearest city, but the actual community is Chiriaco Summit. The campsites are dirt with only fire rings of rocks. There are no amenities or facilities. For what it is, it is a handy little campground. Best recommended for self-contained RVs. - ArmandV

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

Fee envelope dropped into box, ie: no service, have exact change. Sites are too small for anything more than 25 feet even with "large site" list provided by NPS staff at visitor centre. Avoid camping down wind of pit toilets. Toilets ran out of TP. Close to many trails and viewing sites. - Sasquatchewan
Feb 2016 - $15.00
Great park, quiet and scenic, clean restrooms, the works. Not great for big rigs unless you arrive early and are willing to pay for multiple sites if you need them. Generator use is limited to three 2 hour periods, a fine compromise for those of us bothered by their noise. Good hiking on trails near the campground and in fact you can just take off through the desert from your site. - Michael Ray

What a wonderful national park! We came on Sunday and the visitors center said there were about a dozen sites available at Jumbo rocks. We went directly to the campground to claim a site and found many more were available. It is in the heart of the park with a ton of beautiful trails and scenery a short distance away. Just the campground itself is great, with the large bolders all around the sites. We found a spot to fit our 25' trailer and parked the truck beside it. These spots have 2 together so anything much longer would not fit. Spots generally are small as they cater to tent camping but there were many rv's staying there. Next time though we would pay for 2 spots so that we are guaranteed the room to hook up when we leave. No problems this time as the guy who took the spot next to use just needed to park his truck there so we had room. I would love to stay there again as it is a jewel of a park. - PMG

Great park to spend the winter in! This park is a mobile home park with large accessible RV sites available. They have hot mineral pools, a large pool at 90°F, two enclosed pools at 100°F and 104°F, a cool pool, and a sauna. Also a laundromat, library and club house with monthly activities. They have daily rates but this park is really set up for monthly or seasonal stays. We come here every year to "winter over" and love it and the family of people here. - GMR

An oasis in the middle of the desert. Palm trees, golf course, nice lake, swimming pool, and friendly management. It can't be seen from the freeway. It was a pleasant surprise when we saw up close. Full amenities were offered, but we only dry camped over night. Seemed very focused for seniors. Radio signals are faint, the closest gas is 20 miles away, and closest grocery store is about 40 miles away. Manager says it is 80% empty in the summer. I can see why! - zzzya

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

This is a very large resort. It is divided in half, which keeps the temporary RVers separate from the regular/long term residents. The RV sites are narrow and very close together. The grounds are well kept. Walking around the pool and lake area is very pleasant. After a day of driving, it was great to relax in the various hot pools. The pool area was well maintained. There is a code for the bathrooms/showers, which were clean and maintained. No complaints. Would stay again if in the area. Only issue was how crammed in everyone is. - 2togoNebraska
Apr 2015 - $50.00
A quirky, fun place to relax. Our second time, so likely we'll go back as it's close for us. Hard to rate high because it's very old and a lot is original, plus their customer service has a lot to be desired. Spots are so narrow, many new larger RVs won't fit in the space between the concrete pad and electrical on the other side.
What we liked: Easy to get in, can pick your own spot, they drain the hot tubs every night so they don't use chemicals (though think they should not allow small kids in them, saw a few, ugh), just low key atmosphere and they don't seem to nit-pick. Sauna and steam rooms were nice and working, and grounds were pretty and spacious if you have a big group.
What we did not like: They won't allow ANY reservations for a specific spot or saving. It was important to our group to camp together for meal preps, kids, etc. and even after the first person arrived and offered to PAY for the other couple of spots, they would NOT allow any "saving" of spots in any way. Are they trying to be difficult and piss people off? We get that they don't want to start assigning spots and have to reserve, but why not let the first to arrive PAY and put things in that site so others realize it's taken? We'd hate to accidentally take a spot right between a group because we didn't know any better. Easy fix, but they seem stubborn and don't care. Only solution is everyone arrive at the same time, and that is not always possible.
We loved visiting the nearby (as in 10 min at most) Cabot's Pueblo Museum. Interesting, informative, and neat grounds. We were there 2 hours. Area has a lot of hiking, and the Palm Springs Tram would be fun to take up. - Dank

So many have raved about this place but we found it marginally acceptable. Sites are all gravel and not level. Tenters are allowed in any site so we were encircled by tenters, some of whom also slept in their cars. Showers were a mess. I question whether they were cleaned as often as advertised. Office staff were curt and did not seem to be responsible for anything other than the day use of the spa's. Dogs running around off leash. Price reflects a weeks stay, in retrospect a bad decision. We will never stay in this park again. - fivertug
Dec 2013 - $14.00
The $14 daily rate is based on the monthly rate we paid. This RV park is an older park with limited spaces for travelers. It is excellently managed by the on-site managers, who work tirelessly to keep the grounds and facilities immaculate. We particularly enjoyed the hot spring fed hot tubs and the pool, the water is crystal clear, cleaner than anything we have ever seen. There is a strong sense of community in this park but you don't feel pressured to take part if you want your privacy. There are also planned events if you wish to take part, and the social committee issues a regular newsletter to everyone on site. It is securely gated and never once did we feel unsafe. We stayed here for 5 weeks in a quiet site away from Corkill Road and we plan to return to this park for sure. - User3357

Staff was extremely friendly, and pool and bathrooms although old were clean..No place to park out of the way while attempting to register without blocking a full time mobile home owners driveway. One resident had us move twice even before getting to the office 20 feet away. Then the full time mobile home neighbor close to the only site available for a week started griping and giving us crusty looks before we were even able to back into our site. We smiled and waved and told him we would be out of his way momentarily...he grumbled and drove off. It seemed those residents are not happy with RV's pulling in and out which appears to be a more recent choice of the new ownership. The park is old with too many resident cars that look like they haven't budged in months (all flat tires). Roads are really too tight for 40ft class A... narrow with way too many obstacles waiting around some hidden corner. Bars on windows in the whole neighborhood outside of the park, including the park office was our first head's up that we might want to stay elsewhere. After attempting to get the rig around the corner and dealing with the not friendly neighbors we informed the office we would not be staying. - GOERV

This is hard to rate because services are fine. The main thing to know is this is not an RV park, but an older mobile home park where they put RVs on unoccupied mobile home sites. This provides pretty roomy decomposed gravel spaces. The office is only open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, from 10-2 in the off season. When we arrived Tuesday we were met at the locked gate and directed to the assigned spot and told come to the office the next day. Manager was very nice the next day, but we had to wait a day to get the Wi-Fi code, which works well. It is an okay place to hang out and about a 20 minute drive to Palm Springs across the freeway, where you will want to go for restaurants and amenities. The mineral pool and three mineral spas are very nice. - Dayle Tedrow

As others have mentioned, Belle is a small campground. Our 35' fifth wheel fit well into space #4. #3 is also good for a larger rig. There are maybe 6 sites for larger rigs. It's first-come, first-served, no reservations there, so you might want to have a back-up plan if you're there on a weekend.
We didn't use the vault toilet that is in the campground, but in the 5 days we were there, we saw the Park service people attend to it twice. There is a dumpster and recycling bins in the campground.
We entered from the north, and it's a quick 10-15 minute drive to Belle.
There was a surprising amount of traffic driving through the campground, especially on Saturday night, very late/early morning. Not enough experience there to know if that's normal.
We really loved this place and the Park, and would like to come here again. There is a lot to see within the Park, a real natural treasure. - BLT2015

In my opinion, this is the best campground in JTNP for a medium to large RV. We stayed here and at Cottonwood and we also drove through Jumbo Rocks. Black Rock and Ryan. Our 32' fifth wheel barely fit into a site at Cottonwood, but it was nice, if isolated. I don't think we could have fit into more than a couple sites at Jumbo Rocks and none at Ryan. Black Rock is just ugly. Belle is small, but about 7 of the 18 sites could accommodate a large RV. Our site was pull-through (a 40' trailer could have fit in it) and right next to a beautiful rock formation about 50 feet high. The views are stupendous of the desert all around (unlike Jumbo Rocks where the rocks are cool but there are no views due to the uneven terrain). It is quiet and there is nice space between sites unlike Jumbo Rocks. Belle is also pretty convenient to many good hiking trails and features of the park. We have been camping nearly full-time for three years and Belle was one of the top 2-3 campgrounds we have ever experienced. Get here early in the week to have any chance of getting a site, especially for a big rig. - MrSunshine

My second stay at Belle in Joshua Tree National Park. I prefer it to the other campgrounds because of it's seclusion. It's also the smallest campground in the park with only 18 sites. Makes it nice and quiet. If you want to climb and boulder, you can do it right here or you can travel a short distance to another area in the park to do that. Saw no kids as usual. There are no 40 footers in here, they couldn't make it around the boulders. There is no water, thus no showers in campground. You get a table, bbq and firepit at your site. You also get some awesome views out into the wilderness of Joshua Tree in every direction. It is located within minutes of everything there is to do and see in Joshua Tree. Be sure and reserve a tour of the historic Keys ranch, it is very interesting. Spent 5 wonderful days and hopefully will return again soon. - User1132

Price was excellent for what is offered. The only pool is good, thermal pools excellent. Park very well maintained for its age. Mini golf is toughest ever encountered and in need of renovation. Only one bath house for 300+ sites. Only 2 toilets in men's room. 2 pool tables are in fair condition. Park shuts down end of April so while we were staying there we no activities. This park is geared for seasonal seniors. Not really family or kid friendly. Staff excellent. Sites mostly level and larger than most, and many are 50 amp. No picnic tables. No store. Only a soda machine. No run down units on premises. - venice

Old park, good for an overnighter, not a stay.
Dirt lots, no patios. Low-class. Lots of coming and going, noisy, no peace.
Inadequate amount of showers and washing machines for the amount of sites. Showers in disrepair, backing up.
Was it not for the discount off the regular rate, it would have been a total rip-off. So with the discount we only paid around $22 which is all the place was worth.
Some very friendly staff, some not so much.

A nice facility, with plenty to do. Sites are spacious. All sites are gravel, but have a concrete patio. The mineral water pool and hot tubs are a huge positive. All are between 90 and 104 degrees. The laundry is a huge negative. Machines take a card which cost $5 plus whatever is put on it. All refills are in $5 increments, with no refunds. WiFi is good. Cable is poor....you need a TimeWarner box to get most channels. - ta96silver

The main attraction to this park is the superb hot springs fed pool complex. Excellent. Older park with majority of permanent casistas. Numerous ones showing their age as are most residents. Very nice Chapel services dyring peak season. Not a family or kid friendly park. RV sites are sand, not very level but adequate. Site 293 is larger than most but not at all level. You have to back over high curbs on most RV sites. No shower/ restrooms except in pool area, which have been remodeled and are kept very clean. Deck area around water complex needs refurbished. Must wear shoes due to small stones. Close to Palm Springs attractions and shopping. Discount was good. Would not pay high monthly or annual rate. - venice

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 park was designed as a Mobile Home Park, but there are many RVs staying these days. What makes this park is the friendly management and long stay residents. We booked for a week and stayed a month, went away and then came back for another month. We were made welcome upon arrival and invited to all activities. Very quiet at night. - Jaxsmom

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

They raise the rent to help upgrade the park but have yet to see any upgrades. Wi-Fi was available when we first got there but now there is no Wi-Fi. Water goes off randomly anywhere from minutes to a day or more. Electric is outrageous as you pay more for park fees than the actual electric usage. They do have a wonderful pool and mineral spa. It works for a night or so, after that the problems will be plentiful. They do have a dog park but mine ended up with kennel cough as the area is not cleaned up. - User2618

The worst we have seen, especially for the money and, cash only. Very old, small and tight. Our 40' hung over onto the very poor pavement. Very tight spaces and if host hadn't helped, we would not have been able to get into our space. The website claims they have cable TV, but they don't. Redeeming factor is their Wi-Fi, it is the best we have seen in past few months. Mostly permanent or very long term tenants. Didn't know they had a spa or pool until after we left, and happened to see that on their website. Won't be back, especially due to the price. - RDA

This park is a work in progress since the management is fairly new and the park needed a lot of improvement. We came to this park in Sept. 2011 due to my husband having temporary employment in the area. We fell in love with it quickly. The management is great, the natural hot springs pool and spa are at the right temperature to be enjoyed at any time of the day or evening. The laundry, restrooms, and showers are kept clean. There is a nice sunny clubhouse where they have Wednesday coffees, happy hours, and lovely dinners for the tenants during the holidays. We loved it so much that we bought a trailer and paid yearly lot rent so that we can enjoy our retirement years here and be a part of this wonderful community park. The people are very friendly and helpful with information on the area's sites. I would recommend this park to anyone wanting to stay 1 night or longer. More than likely you will decide to extend your stay. - User2618

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

Great park that is well maintained, from the bathrooms to the golf course it is first class. Borrego Springs maybe the most isolated area except Death Valley in California and Death Valley has better roads into it than Borrego. But once there the city is a return to the 70's not much has changed since then and it has charm of years past. The State Park is huge and takes days to see it all. Even if you do not play golf you will enjoy The Springs. This is not an overnight stop but a resort to be enjoyed, just to far off the beaten path for an overnighter. - sjones

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

This place needs some help. The campsites were rough. There were lots of tripping hazards like cable wires and utility boxes and pipes in ground near campsite. Many areas of the park were in disrepair. The pool had no shade areas and the chair I had was broken. The restrooms had dirty toilets that did not flush--GROSS. I was surprised to find neighboring camps that were nicer and half the nightly cost. This place caters to off road riders since they have ATV exits to trails from inside the park. We were there on a busy Easter weekend and the noise was too much. I would not return. - Dave from California

We were here for 2 months due to work and the park is run very well. The owners are welcoming and friendly. They purchased a run down park and everyday they are making improvements. All buildings are spotless and clean. Staff is also friendly. Restaurant is good. The pool area is by far the best with the 2 pools, 2 huge hot tubs, and about 10 roman tubs of hot mineral water. The park is clean with lots of room to roam. Huge field for dogs to walk and run. The best part is none of the sites are trashy. They also don't nit pick you on everything. Great place to bring kids or have an adult weekend. DJ on the weekends and it does quiet down around 10 so if you have little ones it isn't a bother. - mnh8483

Cute little park with many full timers. We had some troubles with the fees. We were charged $5.00 per day for electricity and there was no hot water in the shower, which is why we stopped instead of boondocking. Made us pretty mad; they were having a temporary problem; would have appreciated knowing that beforehand. No TV. The manager is the nicest person to deal with thru email, etc., and was kind enough to send us a $6.00 refund for the electricity charge and the lack of hot water in the showers. She is a doll. - saturn7

The Managers are what made this experience a good one for us. Their attitude and willingness to let us stay without a reservation during the busiest season even though we had to move sites twice during the month was outstanding. The Park is clean and new laundry and clubhouse are almost finished. Location is great for riding your bike all around town. We made a reservation for the month of March next year. - User2417

The Oasis is a small, clean, quiet place to stay in an RV, in the middle of a beautiful desert, yet close to restaurants, Anza Borrego Desert State Park, the Ocotillo Wells off-road area, and the Spring wildflower bloom. The RV sites have water and electric and, being in town, VZ and Sprint Internet broadband can be received. The management is pleasant and accommodating. The Oasis closes for the summer, and has many regular bookings, so check for availability. - Old China Books

Sites are big enough, but not totally level. There is no shade around but it is the desert. They have great hot mineral spas and a heated swimming pool with a small cafe on site. There appear to be a lot of permanent and repeat visitors that come year after year. It appears to be an older crowd, but all were very friendly. They have a lot of activities going all the time. The first two days of our week stay were extermely windy, but then it calmed down and was beautiful. The closest decent grocery store is about 25 miles away in Brawley. We went the additional 18 miles to El Centro. All in all it was a pretty decent place to spend a week. - flyturbo60

We stayed 5 days and found this location to be a wonderful. The grounds were very well maintained. The showers were clean but very dated, and the sites were somewhat level (we did need a pad under the passenger-side wheels). The site we were assigned (118) was just a little tight when the awning was fully extended. During our stay, the wind was a little strong and since this is the desert, our patio mat was covered with sand. Sand is the base for sites and the roads are paved and very good condition. A restriction was placed on outdoor lights so to not create 'light pollution" to hinder star gazing, that was very acceptable. We didn't notice excessive party animals, was quite quiet. WiFi was acceptable but cable TV was pathetic, so we used our satellite dish. Because of the trees used as windbreaks, it was a little difficult to align our portable satellite dish.
The office staff was very courteous and helpful. There is a saloon and restaurant on site. Their menu is very small and the meals we received were good. Be advised, these are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. An on-site laundromat is available and also used by the locals.
Overall, we would most definitely stay here again. Over the 5 days, we saw all there is to see in Borrego Springs. We've been there, done that and got the T-Shirt! - SD75mac

If you want full hook-ups this is the place. Sites are narrow but we were next to the bath house so we had extra room. Good pull thru site with all hook-ups, worked well. Wi-Fi was good and cable TV was good. We spend several days because of friends in the desert camping. Site was level but the little stones got tracked into motorhome. We would stay again if in the area. - belanga

We hadn't planned to stay here, but due to a minor emergency while in Borrego Springs we needed to find an RV park with full hookups for a couple of nights and this what was available. The staff was helpful in finding us a site without a reservation, though we found the price to be surprisingly high for the very basic (sand/dirt), narrow site ($53 after Good Sam, before tax, during President's Day weekend). Our site was a pull-through and was plenty long, but quite narrow. We couldn't safely pull through to exit due to a diagonal tree blocking the front of the site. The back-in sites are only 30 amp and are even closer together, but not that much less expensive. The RV park is relatively small, but since it's adjacent to the hotel it has amenities like a pool, hot tub, and restaurant, as well as some shared fire pits in one area. Behind the park is a wide expanse of desert with some simple trails that were good for walking our dog... just watch out for the many sharp cactuses! The park is in a good location with most of Borrego Springs a short bicycle ride away. They offer free Tengo WiFi, which worked reasonably well for a while, then would go down for an hour or so, then work well for a while, etc. We had decent Verizon LTE and AT&T 4G signal, but both were pretty slow when we used them for data. - LifeRebooted

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

Large family-friendly park. A mixed-use park for sure. There were many permanent mobile homes, as well as long-stay trailers. There was a RV camp and a tent camp on opposite sides of the lake inlet. Camp 2 is where we stayed. We were originally given a spot in between two permanent homes, but we asked for a different spot in a more open area. We were reluctantly given the spot by a very unhelpful front-gate. The front-gate people were unfamiliar with the occupancy of their park and gave incorrect directions to our spot. The lake is fun, you can rent boats and fishing gear. The park is very peaceful at night. The roads are tight for a rig over 30ft. Will stay here again now that we know what lots to avoid. - ArnerJoey

Lake Hemet is a picturesque campground, but with a few problems: 1) Has very narrow camp access roads made backing into the site difficult. This was compounded by large boulders placed in front of each site. 2) Has lots of full time campers with semi-permanent set-ups, including storage sheds, porches, etc. This is not my cup of tea as it looked kind of shanty-town like. 3) It was surprisingly buggy, mostly at dusk. If you like fishing, folks were reporting good luck fishing the lake. Boat rentals are available. If you're into high tech, you'll be disappointed by the lack of cell coverage and Wi-Fi. If you can live without communications to the real world, and have a maneuverable rig, you may enjoy this campground. - Bigbit

Very nice county park in the mountains surrounded by large pines. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park has no hookups but numerous water stations throughout the park. Restroom were not clean and 2 of the toilets in the women's restroom were clogged. Sites on upper loop are very uneven making it difficult to level a trailer (luckily, the recent storms created a ditch in the one side of our site which allowed us to place one wheel in to level). - WoodShed22

Just returned from a long Memorial Day weekend at Hurkey Creek, our first visit. This is a Riverside County Park: all dry camping. It is at 4,000 feet altitude in the big pine trees surrounded by mountains. Within a 15 minute drive of Idyllwild, 30 minutes to Palm Springs. Overall, it was a beautiful weekend. The positives: Beautiful scenery, relatively cool weather, great hiking and mountain bike trails, friendly staff (and they did a good job of enforcing the quiet time, even on the crazy holiday weekend). The park was clean, you can book reservations on a very good web site with up-to-date pictures of each site. The negatives: No cell coverage (no one in our group had cell coverage, regardless of carrier: you have to drive up the mountain toward Idyllwild to get a connection). The showers/restrooms were older, dark and dingy. 50 cents for the shower. The roads are all paved, but the sites are dirt (DG). We lucked into one that was fairly level, but a LOT of the sites are uneven and sloping. The web site has pictures of each site: pay attention! I mentioned earlier that there are no hookups, no dump station either. All in all, it was a good weekend, but this is iffy, for us, for a return trip. It is very difficult for me to be completely out of contact (job). Also, unless you're REALLY paying attention when you book reservations, it would be pretty easy to end up in a terrible site. - FireFlyer

First off, if you get here on anything other than a weekend or holiday and the sign says "full", DON'T BELIEVE IT. We've been here twice on a Sunday night and Monday night and it said full when it was all but empty. The Rangers here don't seem to care very much about accuracy. That said, this is a beautiful campground surrounded by gorgeous rock formations. It is very clean. The parking area for most of the sites are very small though. Don't even think about a bringing a big rig here. At 28 feet we had to try about 4-5 sites before we could find one that worked. They are also not level at all so be prepared. Now I-fi of course, but we got 2-3 bars on Verizon. We would definitely stay again. - Pdxjoanne

Tuesday, April 16 – Indian Cove Campground. This campground is located in Joshua Tree National Park, CA. It is one of eight campgrounds in the park plus you can wilderness camp but need to check at the Visitor Centers. Indian Cove is in the northern section of the park, and one must drive out towards Twenty-Nine Palms and then off of route 62 take the Indians Cove road to drive back into the park about 3 or more miles. The reason we selected this campground is that it is one of two that accepts reservations in the park. There were 101 one sites located among the rocks with fancy pit toilets located all over. No water or electricity in the park. Sites can be tight, but there are sites that can hold RV’s, but nothing I saw that would take a 35 foot or larger RV. We have a 25ft RV, and our site 53 was a tight squeeze. The park is beautiful with rocks all over. All sites were in the rocks and there are hiking trails and rock climbing areas throughout this campground and the park. This campground is near Twenty Nine Palms for services. We drove up from the south entering near Cottonwood campground and there is a single lane stretch of over 13 miles that you have a lead car that takes you. Heading north the lead car takes off every hour and half hour, and coming down from the north it goes every quarter past and forty five minutes past the hour. Speed limit is 25 but our lead car took off at 40 going over tar, rocks, loose gravel and by construction crews. Watch out for stones hitting your windshield from the car in front. On our way we passed two other campgrounds, White Tank and Belle (smaller than Indian Cove), and we could have fit in there. We also drove into Jumbo Rocks Campground, and that one was stunning and there were some sites in there we could have fit in. They have a limit there of 30 feet. Those campgrounds are first come first serve and Jumbo Rocks on a Tuesday was almost full. Over the weekend all campgrounds were full and campers had to park in an overflow area near Twenty Nine Palms. There are three main visitor centers at the entrances, and all of them have different exhibits. The Twenty Nine Palms Visitor Center also has the Mara Oasis located there. Black Rock, Cottonwood, and Indian Cove cost $15 per night and the others $10. If you have a pass, your entrance to the park is free and the camping is 50% off. Nice spot to camp, and in April the nights are still cold. - gsnakehill

We have visited Joshua Tree National Park several times but had never stayed in this campground before. We have a 32' motorhome and tow a Subaru Forester. I would not recommend this campground to anyone driving this sort of set-up. The roads inside the campground were extremely rough and had been made even worse by heavy rains that had fallen just prior to our visit. We found only two or three sites that we felt were suitable for a rig of our size. The area is nice enough, but not as pretty as Jumbo Rocks in my opinion and Jumbo Rocks has more spaces that work for larger rigs and is more convenient to the rest of the park. Be aware that there are no hook-ups of any kind nor any water or dump station at Indian Cove. There are pit toilets, but no showers. This is a dry camping experience, so come prepared. As others have said, generator hours are very limited. I would recommend this campground to anyone tent camping or using a small trailer or truck camper, but not to anyone with a large rig. We would not stay here again. We paid $7.50 with our Golden Age pass, for others the fee is $15 a night. - BruceandKathyWA

Black Rock must be the orphan child of Joshua Tree National Park. Terrible is an insufficient negative description for the interior roads (narrow, windy, potholes in the asphalt roads, and erosive dips in the dirt roads). Joshua trees are fiberglass killers and they are not trimmed to accommodate RVs. Sites are dirt, and many are not level (even for tent campers), and you cannot determine which are which at time of reservation. Drinking water is available at various locations and at the dump station. Restrooms are plentiful and fire rings and picnic tables are provided. The rangers are courteous and helpful. The campground is clean, quiet and peaceful (except the generator hours), and beautiful if you like the high desert. We would not stay again. - LoneWolf

I agree with with nearly all said by previous July 2011 reviewer. There are 33 sites including 1 hike/bike site and 1 accessible site #3 which is the only pull through site and the only site currently with 30 amp service and water but no sewer. Stayed 7 nights Sunday to Sunday. Best time is Sunday through Thursday as park is empty. Friday and Saturday is completely full and a bit of a madhouse. State Park staff and campground volunteer host are very friendly and attentive to the park. Ranger makes nightly drive/walk through entire park looking for troublemakers. Restrooms and showers are cleaned 2-3 times each day. Trailer limit is 24 feet. There is a small nature trail surrounding the park. - User1132

This state park also has another campground, Stone Creek with 46 campsites. Idyllwild Campground is in a forest next to the town; Stone Creek is 6 miles north surrounded by manzanita bushes. Out of 30 sites at Idyllwild Campground, 9 are tent only and the rest are tent & RV, 2 pull throughs. Water and sewer hook ups are available in a few sites such as site 26 where we stayed. Almost immaculate restrooms and showers. Activities within 2 miles include antiquing, restaurant/bar hopping, nature viewing, hiking, rock climbing, fishing at Strawberry Creek and campfire programs on Saturday evenings in the summer. The staff are serious about enforcing noise and 8 person per site rules. The only drawback was Camp Maranatha next door which had some raucous activities. - TARDISRV

My rate was $20 plus a $7 reservation fee. This was a nice cool place to camp out of the heat of the valley below. I wish I could spend more time up here. Do not expect level sites like you would find in an RV park. Many of these sites are designed for tents, but you can get an RV in there. There are two buildings with showers, one at the very front of the campground (near the day use parking lot), and one near the middle of the campground. My campsite was at the very back of the campground, and at my site Verizon service was poor, so your mileage may vary. I would stay here again. - Rick Scholz

My family and our three dogs stayed here over Labor Day weekend. It was our first trip to Idyllwild. The people who work in the park are exceptional. They are always friendly and willing to give you free maps and information for your stay. The showers were $0.50 for three minutes, not a bad deal, just remember to bring quarters because I don't believe there is a change machine onsite. You may be able to get change at the check-in kiosk, but I'm not sure. This campground is a short walk from the markets, restaurants, and shops of the town of Idyllwild. Sites were spacious and guests were quiet. We stayed in Site 6, a pull-through near the front of the park. We heard coyotes howling two nights of our trip, it was VERY COOL. The nature center, a short hike or drive away, allows you free entrance if you are staying in the park. Our family and our dogs loved it. We can't wait to go back when the snow comes. - CR Francis

We chose the Blu INN so we could store our trailer on site and just pull onto a spot when we traveled out on the weekends. The first weekend we decided to stay on the campground will be our last. We paid for a month of storage on the 1st and camped on a site for 4 days on the 15th. On day 3 we decided to eat the monthly storage fee and we pulled our property off the site completely. The owner of this property is arrogant and flat out rude. We had a guest come through the gate and they didn't check in as there are no signs at the gate to check in. The owner came around in his truck and was rude and belligerent to our guest; who actually had come to see the site with his father to potentially camp out for their next trip. He put his fingers in my guest face and my wife's face and warned them that it was private park and they better check in. About 10 minutes later another guest came in the site driving a Borrego Ambulance as he was on duty. He did not check in either and again the owner came in his truck, beer in hand, and warned my guests to check in. We spoke to the two other renters across from us and they had similar experiences with the owner the night before. In the morning I discussed the behavior with the attendant at the front desk and informed her we would not be camping or storing any longer at the Blu Inn. When we checked out the owner was sitting in the office and did not even attempt to discuss my concerns regarding his behavior with my guests and my wife. We respect the fact that as the owner he is trying to keep tabs on who is in the park for the safety of his guest, this is why we chose to camp there instead of in "the desert" but his arrogant, rude, obnoxious behavior was inappropriate. If I want that type of behavior I will take my chances camping out in the open rather than paying for it. The pool was freezing and cloudy, the jacuzzi was 80 degrees and you needed tokens to shower; which we didn't know until we were in the shower undressed. Not worth the money for a hookup and rude owner - madirain

Very friendly, helpful owners and staff. Great showers/restrooms. Sites are wide and deep with shrubbery in between for privacy. New pool will be excellent when ready by May 1st or sooner. A bit out of the way with town of Borrego Springs about 20 miles away. Seven pound bag of ice ($3) available on site. Only downside: wifi limited to 4 hours max per day with absolutely no streaming. After 4 hours system cuts you off till next day. But, we drove to the library in town (excellent 24/7 wifi) and were on-line and streaming. - Robertg7

Very relaxing park. Off-road vehicles are not allowed to drive through the park, keeping the dust down and keeping it quiet.
The sites are well maintained. Each site is raked after a guest leaves, making it appealing and welcoming for the next arrival.
We stayed here as a base for visiting the metal sculptures in Borrego Springs which is a 15 minute drive away.
We aren't desert people, but this place was very welcoming and relaxing. - Navy RV Traveler

The price is right. Pool was kind of cold, but I swam in it once, my kids several times. Walking distance to a store and a beer bar. Friendly staff invited us back for a big July 4th weekend bash they do. We would come back next desert season. Manager said there were some plans to improve a few outdated areas of the park. The park is 45 years old, but is comfortable. No playground, but lots of kids enjoyed the pool. - Dave from California

Great camp for the price. Dirt parking. Nice and level. Good layout if you want to camp with a few friends close to each other. Easy walk to a market and the "Iron Door", a beer bar. Friendly to off-roaders. Pool was freezing cold, but my kids did not mind. We stay here once or twice a year. Usually don't need reservations. Lots of spaces even during peak season. - Dave from California

This campground is filled mostly with residential campers. The staff was very friendly, but none too efficient. Had to pay in cash as the don't accept credit cards. The bathroom/shower was bare-bones, not very clean, and lacked toilet paper. Water, electricity (30 amp), and sewer connections were all okay. The site was wide, with room for the RV, a concrete patio, and our car side-by-side. - DaveInOhio

I wish to warn anyone to make sure you speak to someone before you stay here-you may wind up with an unsatisfactory site. I wound up leaving early the next morning and going to the other RV park. I called two times to make a reservation and was not called back. I chose to go anyway due to its close proximity to the entrance to the the Joshua Tree National Monument. I thought if there was nothing available I would go to the other park. I pulled up to the office and asked if a space was available. She asked if I had an adapter as she only had a fifty amp space available at an empty mobile home lot. She told me I would need to unhook my truck as the road to the site was behind me and there was no place to turn around. I unhooked my truck and drove to the site and went back for my motor home. There were two very old trailers (not mobile homes) on either side of me with one having a lot of clutter around it. Turned out the sewer hookup would not fit my RV sewer hose and I was nervous about the electric hookup voltage since it was a mobile home hookup so I dry docked for the night at a bit more than dry dock price. One of the "neighbors" was noisy at night. I did see some nice RV sites at the front of the park; so my advice is to make sure you get a reservation for what you want before you go. On the other hand if you want stunning views and real quiet (this is in January) go to the other park. - nanzhere

Stayed at a back-in site with lots of tree coverage. The pull-through spots had no trees and were a little ways from many of the amenities. There are no individual firepits. There was a community firepit, but didn't look like it was active on Saturday. Actually, there was a lot of inactivity around there. I called a day before to make a reservation, they said you won't have to there are lots of spots available--pick of the litter--and there was. The store was excellent from my limited experience. The pool looked clean, but I prefer a more resort type outdoor pool with lounges. Our primary purpose for our stay was to be in close proximity to Joshua Tree and it served its purpose perfectly. I would stay here again for its location and overall experience. - Arash

A resort in name only. Pro: It is convenient to Joshua Tree NP.
If you are visiting for only a few days you are placed at the furthest area of the park. Our site had no table, and when we set up for correct hook up distance, a tree was right at our door, as well as a few cut off stumps easily tripped over. Dog park was at the very end, and all sand with a ragged fence. WIFI could only be accessed in the office/ community room area. Outside "furniture" near the clubhouse were dirty, old plastic chairs laying all around what could have been a nice area to sit. - Fwdaj

In Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Not actually in Borrego Springs but only about a beautiful 15 minute drive away. Two hiking trails located right outside the gate with some wonderful desert scenery. 27 sites on 10 acres within a grove of Tamarisk trees. Hot showers which you need quarters to use. Restrooms/showers were very clean. Rangers were very friendly. There is a table, shade ramada and a fire pit/grill at each site. Sites are asphalt with dirt surround for tent use. - User1132

This is a small well-kept park of mostly long term campers. Didn't use any of the facilities, but the cable and Wi-Fi worked great. There was a picnic table, the site was pretty level, and it made for a satisfactory overnight stop. Wouldn't recommend it for much more than that but it seemed to be the best of the very few options in the area with hookups. Would stay again if we needed a place for a night in the area. - Pdxjoanne

The traffic noise is loud and constant here. This is a small, cramped park with back-in sites. The laundry 'room' [two washers, two dryers] is right in the office, literally. The owner/manager is very nice but I can't see paying $40 for a place that has really nothing to offer. Oh, there are a massage parlor, tattoo parlor and a pawn shop right across the street. - mockturtle

This is a clean, well kept park. The sites are roomy and long. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel and could disconnect and still park in front of the trailer. The owner complains that he cannot accept a credit card or give the Good Sam discount because he has never made a profit. He would only accept cash or a check. The weekly rate is $256 with tax. Power and WiFi is good. There really isn't any other place decent in Yucca Valley. - KD7UCH

Want quiet and big sky? This is a great place. There is the Joshua Tree Astronomy Arts Theater. We had an amazing night with them. Our scope just added to the what everyone could go around and see. Going to spend some more time star gazing.

It's the desert but nice enough if you want to be in the area. It is way off the highway so very quiet. The sites are sand with some bushes in between and a couple of trees here and there. The little fishing lake is cute - we didn't fish. You can occasionally get a cell phone signal (Verizon) and texting worked sporadically. They have a WiFi provider that you have to pay for, but it didn't work very well - very slow and even sporadic. It was through MoJo Hotspot. They must know that it doesn't always work because they are very quick to give you a refund - no questions asked.
Restrooms are good and clean. Showers good and clean and free. Only one dump so if you are leaving when everyone else is - there will be a line. There is a large tent camping area that fills up on the weekends. There didn't seem to be anyone going around to check on things but we didn't have any problems.
We were able to get a good satellite signal - it is the desert after all.
If you are going to be in this area - it is the best private option. We did not check out the RV sites in Joshua Tree National Park - but that would be dry camping.
Some sites have fire rings and some even have a picnic table. - NiMo

This military RV Park was once a trailer park that was unsuccessful, so they turned it into a RV Park and it seems to be doing well. Each site has a covered carport and a storage shed. The entire park is dirt. The curbs don't have a grade so getting an RV in place and leaving is very abrupt. There is no camp host, so people don't follow the rules - dogs off leash, campfires, even people coming in for the night and leaving the next morning without paying. Check-in is at the lodging office. To get to the RV Park, there is a new dirt road just before housing so you don't have to drive through housing; however, at the time we were here, there was no sign. The only nearby road is the road to the main gate, but there is an unusually high amount of traffic and it is disruptive. It appears as though they are about to construct houses immediately behind the RV Park. Decent place to stay for a few days to see Joshua Tree National Park. - LifeRidingShotgun

As stated in previous reviews, good for visiting Joshua Tree NP. No amenities at all, inconvenient from park office to RV sites and not clearly stated where to park for the office. Very sandy and dusty and glad we missed some of the dust storms we were told were horrific when they occurred. Oddly set up, all the "amenities" like shed, cement stand and quasi-garage were located on the driver's side vs where one would actually use them. Don't imagine we'd ever want to stay here again - regardless of the nice commissary and new PX/NEX and gyms on base. - J&L Coleman

This military park is convenient to Joshua Tree National Park and about 60 mi NE of Palm Springs. Good commissary, PX, service station with diesel (fuel was $0.20 cheaper / gallon in Indio). This is a bare park with few facilities. No rest rooms, showers, laundry (one could shower in the gym). Sites are sandy and would be problematic during rains. Noise from main road into base is bothersome. Most sites are occupied by long-term campers. It's a good place to hang your hat while at nearby National Park. It appears that efforts are underway to improve the park, e.g., with satellite TV and the staff went out of their way to be accommodating, possibly to make up for past deficiencies notes in reviews on other web sites. - TravelerRog

We were on our way west and stopped for fuel at the Morongo Travel Center. We then decided to boondock in their parking lot. The lot is asphalt and relatively level and located at the far back of the casino/hotel. Park perpendicular to the marked parking spaces for an easier level. The experience was much nicer than our previous stays at the casinos in the Indio area, and about 15 degrees cooler for this time of the year. We would have no problem staying here again. The price reflected is actually zero, but of course you don't factor in what's spent at the casino. They also have casino shuttles that occasionally come through the parking lot, but it's not a long walk from the parking lot to the casino and restaurants. - James T

This is a big parking lot behind the casino. I followed the signs to "RV Parking" and that isn't the overnight parking. The shuttle van drove up as we pulled in and cheerfully guided us to the correct lot. He told us we could stay as long as five nights. There is a dumpster available. There are train tracks in the area, but far enough away that the trains were barely noticeable. When you sign up for a player's card in the casino, each of you gets a card good for $10 in the casino restaurants. This is a very convenient stopover along I-10 just west of Palm Springs. - Denali

We wanted to check out the Salton Sea and visit the Sony Bono Wildlife Refuge, so we chose Red Hill Marina County Park. There are about five miles of fairly rough dirt/gravel road that you use to navigate to the park. We had been told by a Ranger at Wiest Lake County Park, that there would not be anyone around to collect our money until the next day, but that it was OK to move some barricades and go ahead into the campground. When entering the area there is a sign that indicates "camping" to the left and "RV parking" to the right. It turns out that the hook-up campground is to the right. However, we could not make it all of the way to the campground because of low-hanging branches. We did walk down to take a look and found that it was mainly trashed campers. We then went down to the area marked camping and found some old shelters and picnic tables and a flat place to park. We decided to dry camp for the night. The Salton Sea has receded so much that it is now about 200 yards from the boat ramp. Because the Sea is primarily agricultural runoff, it has a powerful stench that is hard to tolerate when the wind is coming off of the lake. The whole area looks pretty trashed with broken up concrete and rebar. It was quiet at night and fairly dark, except for lights from the nearby geothermal power plants. Satellite was not a problem as there are no trees. We had strong Verizon voice and 4G data. It was convenient for visiting the wildlife refuge and it great for birding, but otherwise it is not a very desirable place to stay. I believe the camping rate for dry camping is supposed to be $15 per night, but we never found anyone to pay. We would not stay here again. - TheJim

The park is real nice overall with beautiful facilities for rallies and horse groups who use the parks. Had great places to walk our dog too. The actual RV parking spots were a bit lacking with just the natural surface as the parking surface. the bushes were out of control and others were dead and needed to be removed. The full hookups were adequate. The park wifi was totally nonexistent in the spot we were in and the cell service was not available; all of which could be a good thing if you totally want to get away totally. We did enjoy our time here and would return. - Kent and Margaret

This campground is under new ownership and they're completely re-modeled the entire place. There's even a new lodge that is beautiful! We've camped here a few times and it's always quiet and serene. We went on a few hikes that start right at the campground and head up into the canyons. There is always so much to see, and the view from the top of the hills is amazing! The night sky has so many stars too! It's a fun place to camp or stay in your RV with their western cowboy themed decorations. There are usually hikers from the Pacific Crest Trail staying here too. They have laundry, a nice clean pool, and even little cabins to rent if tents aren't your thing. There are shade trees on almost all the spots, so nice in the summer. It gets a little windy sometimes, so don't forget your tent stakes. We hope we can come back soon! - landing

Stagecoach Trails has been one of my favorite spots to stay. Because it was very reasonable, centrally located for visiting the huge Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, and there was plenty of room for everyone. All sites have full hookups. Throughout the Park are good sized Cottonwood trees. This is a equestrian park. Galvanized pipe corrals are located on two sides of the park for horse campers. The riding trails right from the park are numerous, including the Pacific Rim Trail. Anza-Borrego Desert Park surrounds the campground in this beautiful high valley. It can be a bit cold in winter, but the rest of the year would be just fine. - Bromont

Talk about your oasis in the desert! We were very happy to find this after driving all day in the desert. The location is easy off the interstate, and the roads wide and easily accessible for larger units. The manager was very nice and accommodating. the site was level and all utilities worked fine (50amp). The park is actually a mobile home park with RV sites as well. We stayed at the spot next to the office/pool area which is where I believe they try to put most RVers. We were there after all the snowbirds left so the place was pretty empty and quiet which was nice after some of the spots we had in California. They have a very nice lake with a walking trail around it. We would definitely use this park if we are in the area again! - buffy

Friendly check-in. Very clean showers and good water pressure. Only one pull-thru site. The rest are head-in, back-out. Only one shower in each bathroom. No shade, but some nicely landscaped trees and plants. A swimming pool, but it is closed early in the afternoon, during the hottest part of the day. Fine for an overnight. - User3773

Stopped here after first checking out the only other campground in the area. Though we paid twice as much at Lake Tamarisk, it was WELL worth it. This place is an oasis in the desert. It is predominately park models and snowbirds, but they do maintain some transient sites. Ours was level with full hookups. They have a heated salt filtered pool and a hot tub. Although NO over the air TV or cable hookup, lounge was open and available to go and watch TV. Internet connection was excellent. Mangers were very helpful and friendly. Reasons to downgrade: Lack of TV, only one shower/toilet in club house area, lack of any amenities nearer than 30 miles. Make sure you have what you need. But if you want to play golf, they have a small course here. A great place to overnight or two. - Too-wow

Not really a full review after only 24 hours here, in the winter, but the campground is quiet and looks clean and well-maintained and I'd definitely return.
There are some things I wanted to mention because I did not see them elsewhere:
(1) Verizon service is good throughout the whole park.
(2) This park is not really in Banning itself, but 12 miles up the winding mountain road toward Idyllwild. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is not slightly scary to get to.
(3) Dig out your jack pads before you come, because the sites are asphalt (wish I'd planned ahead!)
(4) The sites are laid out in an unusual pattern, with groups of both back-in and pull-thru sites in short "nodes", with lots of grassy spaces between nodes. It strikes me that this is one of the best arrangements I've ever seen for family groups with multiple RVs, or small groups traveling together.
(5) The sewer connections are exactly 3" in diameter and threaded on the outside. I had nothing - including my 4-in-1 slip adapter - which would fit these. I guess you need a rubber seal connector and that's the only thing that works? Just come prepared.
As with Thousand Trails parks, you pick your spot. But when I called the office to give them my site number, they refused to take it over the phone. She said I had to give them that information in person?!
I have no toad and it's a long walk back, so I guess they'll have to live without it. That's been my only negative experience here. - Karen On The Road

This is a membership park. It's in a great location, a huge campground, plenty of area for walking, lots of trees and grass, plenty of birds if you like to put out feeders, nice sized spaces with good wifi (for a fee).

Private ownership of each lot and with different buildouts. Our lot was on the Mesa and had an outdoor kitchen and fire pit and some furniture. A pull-in site with a lake view. Paid $625 plus $70 for electric for a month. Additional $125 for their golf cart which was nice to have. There are a lot of sites for rent/sale so look at all of them before you make your choice. Lots of grass around the park which was great for our dog. There is also a large grassy dog park. Some activities. No wifi at site but strong Verizon signal for hotspot. Cable with many channels. Lot owners were very friendly to us. Only down side is that it is 18 miles to Temecula on a 2 lane curvy road. We never made the drive after dark and don't think I would want to. All the shopping you need is in Temecula though and a wonderful farmer's market. - thekites

This is a reservation only, privately owned, destination type resort located 20 minutes east of Temecula on Hwy 79. Plenty of sites available for rent: Class A and 5th Wheel rigs (no toy haulers at this post), and I believe the 10-year rule is adhered to as well. Best to contact the on-site Fairway Associates team Monday through Saturday 10-4, as these friendly professionals will answer any questions and get you set-up for a weekend, the winter or life. Choices range from golf course or panoramic views, close to clubhouses and pools or against the perimeter fence and back-country ambiance.
We've over wintered here for years, first in a 32' Class A with tow car, now with a 43' 5'ver. Love it.
Dog friendly, however not much to entertain children. (There IS room to fly a kite and a cool little fishing pond.) Amenities and activities are structured for drinking age adults.
No food or fuel, so fill up on both before heading out of Temecula. There is on-site propane service. - FosterImposters

One of the best places we have ever stayed. All sites are leased and are put into a rental pool when the leaseholder is out of the park. We were given site 660, which is roughly 55'x70', just down the road from the clubhouse. It has a large heated pool, two spas kept at different temps and a really nice library. Other highlights include two dog parks and 70 acres of desert trails, two work shops, three laundries and showers, 4 pickleball courts, 400 scheduled activities a month and the nicest folks you could meet.
Jojoba doesn't take reservations, so if there is no leased sites available when you arrive, you can use the boondock area, which is also the nicest we have seen, with it's own laundry and restrooms. The new craft center is located in the boondock area, too.
Any guest has free use of all the facilities. All of this was built and is maintained by volunteers who live here. Very impressive. - bobcovey
