2 RV Parks near Desert Center, California

I read that people say "bad Wifi" "no internet", RIGHT! you are CAMPING! in the DESERT! We have a MiFi hotspot, we get 4G LTE internet connection, we have Dish TV, everything you need when you are not in a house; do NOT moan that you don't have internet etc because you haven't organised it, do not expect every camp site to provide you with super fast 4G service and the best TV ever, its up to you to sort that out - don't whinge, PAY for it. OK, the campsite staff over the phone were extremely friendly and helpful, we arrived out of hours on a Saturday and everything was arranged and left in a wallet at the office. We were allocated site 100, despite what another reviewer wrote we easily fitted our 37 ft camper towing a car (total 53 ft) onto site 100, no problem and easily levelled. This site is a gem, seriously, a gem, the residents (snowbirds mostly) are having a blast, so friendly, very safe, recommend this place anytime. ***** - Beezergeezer

This resort is in Desert Center, CA, halfway between Phoenix and Los Angeles on Interstate 10. The park is a mix is pre-fab housing units and RV spaces alongside a very nice lake. We had a pull-thru site with full hookup. There are asphalt driveways with a gravel site pad, patio and picnic table. There is a golf course, pool and clean bathrooms. Note that there is literally nothing else around for 50 miles in either direction. We paid $35 per night. - Coopsecondact

Good overnight, but they only have one site big rig (>40') can fit into. They were without a manager so nobody to check in. Just filled out the form and a resident led me to the site which is right next to the office. You have to go around a block to get into it. They have a couple of pull into/backout of sites but small. I was not able to get them on the phone before coming to find out if they had a place for me. I was lucky that they did. Pool and Hottub we OK. You could play golf for a fee. Closest store is an hour away. There is a restaurant at the exit and some truckers were parked at it but we didn't try it. I will stay there again IF I can get them on the phone to verify that site 100 is available. Also, it is a pull thru but not long enough to leave towed on. WIFI was good once it started to work. When I got there I could not get to the internet through it. Then magically I could. Then a big dust storm came through and it went away. An hour later it came back and stayed. It was fast when it was working. TMobil was 2-3 bars. No local stations and no cable. Dish didn't work because of the storms. I was able to stream thru WIFI. - wcaritj

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
