  1. Great find thank you. This park took Passport America and was very nice. Neighbors were polite and friendly. Large site was easy to back in too and we really enjoyed the spas and pool. Pretty sunsets and views of the surrounding mountains. We took the 17 miles drive and then up Berdoo Canyon for the back way in to Joshua Tree National Park. Laundry was under $4 for a load to wash and dry. We paid $23 per night and will absolutely be back.

    Wow this place has come a long ways over the last few years. We stayed here on a Passport America rate for a very reasonable rate. The season, snowbirds, was over so the park was very quiet and peaceful (although I imagine it is when they are here too). The pool and spas completely spoiled us with their embracing warmth and cleanliness. We ventured to Joshua Tree and Palm Springs in ease from this park. Very large sites and easy to navigate through the park. My only advise would be on your approach when entering swing wide to hit the curb straight on as it does have a lip. Verizon 4G was super solid and we paid $22.50 per night for 10 days.

    Gated entrance and always visible staff makes you feel secure and they were helpful with directions and tips too. We will absolutely stay here again.

    We booked into Desert Pools after having seen photos from other RVers, and knowing that Passport American is valid for up to a week, we booked 5 nights on our way from Nevada to San Diego. We wished we’d had longer! This park is in a beautiful setting, in the desert near Palm Springs, at the foot of snow-capped mountains.

    The spots are full hook-up, level, a mixture of back in and pull-through, and all seem to have a decent amount of space around them. The only small downside of the sites is that they don’t have picnic tables or fire rings. We camped in a 26′ travel trailer and there were other trailers, fifth-wheels, A-classes and B-classes, with suitable spots for all.

    We were here at the end of March, which we understand from many of the other guests is the end of the season. Through the winter there are all manner of organised activities going on, most of which had ended when we got there, but there was still loads for us to do. Mini golf, pickle ball, horseshoes, as well as the wonderful, warm pool and the three hot tubs fed by the hot springs. The pool area is very clean and well maintained,

    There is also a cards room, a dining room (only in season), a pool room, and a fitness room. There are two sets of clean restrooms, as well as a laundry. All of this for $22.50 a night with PA. Amazing!

    You do have to pay extra for wifi ($2 a day) and it’s slow to say the least, but with so much to do on site, plus the surrounding area, you won’t have much time for surfing the net.

    If you do want to get out, Joshua Tree National Park is 45 minutes away, Palm Springs very close, including the neat tramway, which takes you up to the top of the mountains, where there is a restaurant, bar, and a state park, and you can hike around in the snow, having been on your sun lounger in the morning.

    My husband was also particularly excited because for $7 you can buy a permit to wash your rig – something we’ve found is quite difficult to do when you are full-time on the road.

    Also, everyone is really very nice, even though at 34 we are not really the typical demographic – it was one of the friendliest places we’ve stayed and everyone seemed understandably very happy.
