We stayed here for a few days it was too short we really enjoyed the spa and pool both very warm. Our dog enjoyed the dog park so much I had to carry her out so we could eat dinner. She had fun playing with the other dogs and that's not her normally. It was hot during the day but cooled off and was beautiful in the evening. They said they could accommodate 70 ft rigs. The washing and dryer room was clean and the units seemed fairly new. But the one thing I would say is if you have a toad I would disconnect before going thru the gate because the rest is not very level to disconnect. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Along with the $20 per night Coast to Coast points, there is a $22 per night resort fee. This is a huge park, easy to get lost in! All sites are back-in. Ours was easy because there was a cross street right in front of it. Laundry was nice, but very expensive. This is way out of town, but the town has pretty much anything you would need including two major grocery stores, pharmacies, and a date farm just down the road for freshly picked dates.

Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs. This is a sno-bird park with many spaces, all back-in. Flowers and cactus are pretty and well-cared for. Gate at entrance with code. Dish service worked well, as did air. Nice view of snow-covered mountains and a nice drive up 293 to Idylwild. I don't think we would stay here again due to the distance from town and horrible winds.

Catalina is a fabulous venue. Huge natural hot tub with spring mineral water at 108 dgrees. The park offers nice size lots, newly remodeled bathrooms and two club houses with lots of activities. The park has a small dog park, but there is also ample walking area around the park for getting exercise with your pup. Pickle ball, tennis, water volleyball and aerobics, get-togethers, entertainment. The staff are terrific, and very helpful. If you are visiting the Palm Springs area reserve here. You will love it! We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The park, in general, is OK. Management is working on making better. We've stayed here 3 times. But we probably won't stay again as all the sand is getting tough to tolerate. The wind blows a lot. So the sand gets everywhere. So far, management has not brought in gravel or grass to the RV sites to help control the sand. The exercise room is small and missing equipment. The price per night is low, but they then charge you for everything else e.g., cable TV, wifi, and evening social activities. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The Park staff and Ambassadors were all great, friendly and very helpful with checking in, taking us to our site, and answering the many questions we had. The location is somewhat out of the way, but that was a plus for us. The facilities, pools, spas and clubhouse areas are very nice and well maintained. Some of the facilities seemed new or recently renovated. There were nice artistic touches around the property that we really appreciated. The pool seemed to be great place to meet others staying at the resort. They were very friendly, enjoyable to converse with and were happy to be there as well. There were many fun activities such as bocce ball, pickleball, water volleyball and others activities that were well attended. We were interested in joining in the fun but we had other off sight sightseeing planned. We certainly look forward to returning in the future to stay longer and partake in those activities and meeting more happy campers. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Dropped by 2 weeks before check in and chose our site which reception logged in computer. On check in they gave our site away even tho occupancy at 60%. Told us to go look at 2 vacant sites. 1 was occupied & other was within 10' of pickleball court. Sites in lower area are EXTREMELY TIGHT & require parking on the street making navigation almost impossible. No reservations. Hot tubs at times had brown foam ??? & needed maintenance. Most sites did not have sewer caps. Our pipe was cracked and leaked when tanks were emptied. Family resort with diapered baby in hot tub. Saw children on pickleball courts sitting on nets and bouncing up and down. Totally inadequate laundry facilities. Did laundry at 6am. Yoga room too small for class size. Sites are sand so as long as you like sand in your RV it's ok. On most days the entire park smelled like an outhouse. Internet is a rip-off. No recycle bins anywhere. Smoking allowed everywhere. Saw guy smoking on pool deck & flicking ashes on deck. Asked front desk about propane. They said leave tank out front with sticker and they'll leave an invoice. We were home when they came by and required cash or check, no credit cards. Ridiculous. Landscaping is not maintained to a high level. The grass is all brown but mowed weekly. When asked why grass is mowed when it is dormant, the answer was because he had a contract to mow it. We had to prepay a year in advance or we would have left prior to our 6 week stay. We would never stay here again. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Park staff is very helpful and kind, helped me back into my spot and gave me all kinds of information. The park is in a fairly remote area, not close to anything but another RV park. There is a convenience store about 3/4 mile away. Desert views are beautiful. The pools, spas and clubhouse areas are very nice, with the swimming pool kept at 94 degrees. A very social atmosphere. Tennis/pickleball courts and horseshoes and corn hole are available, as well as many activities like potlucks, game nights, and sports. The wifi is a joke, and they charge by the day for wifi and cable, which seems a little ticky-tack to me. My site was level but just sand, with no table. Not huge but not crammed in, either. The roads are well-maintained and there is a dog park. Not much light at night, which is nice because the desert sky is so beautiful. There is a small store on site. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Unfortunately, Passport America discount is only available to a handful of sites. Otherwise expensive. Office is understaffed; our call to reserve was not returned or we would not have stayed here. Too bad, because it is a very nice park with hot springs pool and soaking tub. Sites are tight but manageable for 40'. Make sure you call first ; the park is near capacity; and you'll probably have to pay full price. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

2nd visit here. I enjoyed the hot tubs and pools. Close to many hiking and Jeep trails. Park is well organized, staffed and has many activities for almost every day. I missed the pool tables, but that's not why I camp! The grounds are well kept and the pools are in good hands with the certified pool & spa operator. I would return for another visit during the season. My only complaint is spaces are not level. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Last time we were here the new owners had just taken over and they were doing a lot of remodeling. The lower pool, spa, and clubhouse are now completed and they have done a great job. They were still working on the bathroom in the upper club house so we did not use that area. They are now working to improve the dog park with new grass, water feature, and play things. We live in a Sun City and this place is like a min-Sun City with pickleball, miniture golf, bocce ball, and horseshoes. They offered a Thanksgiving dinner and 94 people showed up. We plan on making this our annual Thanksgiving trip. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I believe that this RV Park is under new ownership and they are in the process of repairing/replacing a lot of different things in the park. We were there for 4 days and the elect/water worked as it should with no issues. My issue with the park is that they have medium to large trees at the front of each RV space (at least where we were). Made it very difficult to get my 42' backed into my spot. My other complaint is all the services you need are at the back of each spot. I had to put out 30' of dump line to reach the sewer. Electrical just made it also. They do not allow U have the sewer hose on the ground. I do not carry 30' of hose raiser, so i disconnected the hose when not in use. This post is just advising other RV'ers of possible issues they might have. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Real nice park. Good water and electric. Quite and well kept. Lots are close to each other. My problem is really not big rig friendly. Not many pull thru spots and have trees close making it hard to get out. Cars park close to the road also making it hard to get out without unhooking the car.

Excellent facilities. Great staff. Very appealing mineral spring hot tubs and pools in 2 separate locations within the park. Lower area has smaller sites but each is separated by flowering shrubbery. Landscaping with rocks and native plants is very attractive. Everything is clean & showers are the best I've yet found in an RV park. No free WiFi. Available 3rd party service is expensive with very poor coverage. Unusable in most parts of the park. We'll definitely be back! We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was level with central hook ups. The cable worked great at the site but there was no free wifi at the site or in the club house. The staff was great and very helpful. The roads were wide with no issues with large rigs. The hot springs were very clean. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed here several times before, but this time the place seemed to be a bit run down. They charged us an additional $18.50 per day for 50 amp service which we thought was way over priced. The roads are paved but the sites are all dirt/gravel. We have a big 5th wheel and most of the sites were too small and tight for us, though they did provide a nicer pull-through. There are mature trees with a minimal amount of landscaping...almost no grass. They have 2 pools and 2 mineral spas which are all natural hot spring mineral water and very nice. Verizon and Dish satellite both worked fine. The place is very quiet, but we felt a bit pricey for a Coast to Coast property. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
