Summary:

Get ready to soak up sunshine during the day and enjoy breathtaking sunsets at night during your stay at Palm Springs RV Resort in Palm Desert, Calif. With easy on and off access to the highway and less than an hour from Joshua Tree National Park, this RV Park is filled with amenities to keep you busy while you visit.

Once nestled into our spot, we loved being surrounded by palm trees in every direction. If you visit during the right season, you can even pick fresh produce from the park’s fruit trees. Our orange tree was a bit past ripe, but it was still enjoyable for the kids to pick the fresh fruit each morning.

Pros

    The pool area is recently remodeled and you can choose from multiple covered cabanas to lounge in or grab a pool chair and enjoy the sun. The large, heated pool was always warm and the hot tub didn’t disappoint.

    The landscape was well maintained and being surrounded by so many palm trees makes you feel like you are on a tropical island.

    There is no shortage of smiles around this resort. All of the staff that we encountered went out of their way to give us A+ customer service.

    Although there are not enough picnic tables to cover the 400-plus sites, we requested one at our site and it was delivered by our second day.

    Incredibly easy on and off access to the highway allows for quick day trips to surrounding areas.

    Within a mile are multiple restaurants, grocery stores, ice cream and even Starbucks! You don’t have to drive much farther to find just about anything you would need.

    Next door to the resort is an RV dealer in case you were to need service or repairs during your stay.

    The daily schedule is packed with things to do, many which are member generated. Whether you play pickleball, water volleyball, billiards or cards, there is a group for you to join in on.

    The guard shack is manned during the day and a gate code is needed to enter after hours. There was always a feeling of security while at the park.

    Joshua Tree National Park is accessible within an hour of the park from three different entrances. Where else can you visit a park with over 1.5 million Joshua trees?

    Picking fruit off the resort trees is allowed, help yourself!

    The bathhouses (especially the one in the 30A pull through section) was very clean, newly retiled, and always had hot water!

    Multiple laundry facilities are available and the prices were great. Only $1.50 to wash and $1.25 to dry.

    The park roads were paved and smooth.

    Both 30-amp and 50-amp sites are available along with pull through and back in options. Although the sites are tight to get in with all the palm trees, there is a fit for everyone. Select tent sites are even available.

    There are multiple rentals units so this would be a great place to have family or friends visit without them needing to crash on your couch.

    Although small, there is a playground up by the activity center which is also where you can get free public WIFI. There is WIFI available throughout the park, for a fee.

Cons

    The dust! Beware of the dust storms that can blow up without notice. If you are leaving your RV for any length of time, close your windows! You may just come home and find a layer of sparkling sand all over your RV. Please don’t ask how we may know this.

    Although the easy on/off access to the Interstate is convenient, it also is loud if you are up front. If you are sensitive to traffic noise, make sure to pick a site in the back.

    There is a train that runs along the highway and no matter where you are in the park you can hear it. Again if you aren’t a sound sleeper make sure to pick a spot in the back of the park.
