Disappointed! This is a beautiful park with 1,o3o spaces yet the majority are park models. We squeezed into the spot they gave us (had to unhook the tow first) and there were no other RVs on the east side. Felt really out of place. Drove down to their restaurant and had a burger. We were the only ones there. Guess I should have made sure it said "RV" Resort. - Possumvalleybrndr

They worked to find a spot that would fit our long (65') rig. It was a very nice site with a wash behind us. The problems with the resort is that it is meant mostly for staying in a park model. The streets are narrow, so parking a longer rig is difficult. We had a problem with our cable connection. Calling the office didn't solve the problem, so they promised a repair person would come out to fix the problem. The repair person never showed. - Raquel

I spent a month here. Spent the first week in amongst the park models. After a disagreement with a neighbor I requested a move. Next site was much better in the mostly transient area of the resort. First site was very hard to back into due to cars parked on the street. I found the long term residents cordial but not overly friendly. Forget about star gazing at night even though there is nothing around the resort due to number of lights in the resort. If you want to receive mail or packages you must rent a mailbox for $10. Laundry cards are needed and you can only recharge the card in the East laundry room. Wind is pretty constant in the valley. You have to drive a bit to go shopping. - jnateg

We truly enjoyed our stay at this park. Yes, the sights are tight. There are tall hedges on each side of your lot--really gives you real privacy in these cramped quarters. Your patio feels like a private living room. Many of the seasonals have darling outdoor setting arrangements. I was worried about getting our 31' coach into our site. I'd stopped at the office to register, and hubby proceeded to our site. With the help of several neighbors, he was backed in and set up by the time I got to our site--no problem. Many British Columbia Canadians winter here. Very friendly bunch--we were immediately invited to join their Monday and Friday hiking group and thoroughly enjoyed our treks with them. Convenient location to old town Palm Springs--walking distance. Took our bikes to the grocery store. Great location to explore Palm Springs. Bathrooms and showers are older, but well maintained. Laundry was small, but clean. Pool area was very nice. Lovely clubhouse. - RagTopDay

I agree with some of the other posts. This is not a friendly RV park. The full-timers won't even move their vehicles out of the way in order help you get your rig parked. The front office also keeps pretty short/weird hours (e,g, closed at 11 am on Sunday). Then, lastly, their wifi is really minimal. If you go to their pool, sit poolside, you may get a weak but usable signal. They have good cable TV service, but you have to ask for a converter box at the office.....they don't offer it up. Not bad, until you consider the strange office the office keeps. So, once you have everything figured out and get in to your space (too tight for large rigs), then the park is great. The best things about this space is privacy and location; you're fairly close to old town Palm Springs. So all in all its' a nice, old RV park. If they'd make a few minor changes this park could easily be a 9 or 10. I'll come back again. - Bruce of Port Ludlow

We've been coming here for a while. Great location. Great private sites. Park facilities are good but aging. While we were here almost every party with a trailer had a brutal time backing into their site. It isn't impossible but can take a while. Make sure you have a spotter for backing into your site! The folks in this park can be either super friendly or cold and cliquey. If social contact is important to you this isn't your place. If you are looking for a great location, this can't be beat! This place used to be very noisy but now seems extremely quiet. We think this place is getting better overall. Come here for your reasons but don't let neighbour socializing be one of them. The short stay folks are awesome but the seasonals can be brutal. - RV Dog

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

We stayed here over New Year's 2005/2006. During the four nights we were there the bathrooms were not cleaned once. No TP, no soap, no towels. We would not stay here again. - march2397

It was basically a large parking lot with 4 rows of parking (approx. 60 spaces), all hard packed dirt/sand (not gravel), so maneuvering any size motorhome isn't an issue. There is NO grass, all sites are back in, and all utilities are at the back of the RV, so you may need extensions for some of the hookups, which were water, 30A electric and sewer, but no cable. The water was easy to connect to, and the water pressure was sufficient. The WiFi connection was OK to their access point, but the internet bandwidth was poor at best. Verizon cell signal was 5 out of 5 bars, and one OTA TV station was available. We don't use restrooms/showers, so we can't render an opinion on those items. We did not notice any significant road noise, but noise like that doesn't bother us anyway. The price was somewhat high considering it was a bare-bones site but with full hookups, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a no frills place with minimal amenities, but for a couple of night stay, it had everything we needed. - Don Gagnon

This is a great find mere minutes from josha tree national park entrance. It isnt a typical rv park, and it is a well kept secret for quiet rv and tent camping near hwy 62 and joshua tree at $25 a nite. Spaces are quite large, with full hook ups and 30amp service. There is a clean shower house recently renovated w strongest water pressure Ive had in 10 years and on demand hot water. A couple nites a week the bar opens for bingo nite and a large closed sheltered pavillion w lights and fans makes for an unusual rv park perk. The pavillion has bbq grill and would be a perfect place to take refuge from winds and rain while camping. Some sites have fire rings and picnic tables. This is a clean, quiet, safe budget friendly place that people haven't discovered yet. Call to reserve as there isnt an on duty camp host. - tango t

Nothing fancy, just a sand lot with hook-ups. 30 amp service only, low water pressure. There is WiFi but it is very weak. This park is not marked very well and many people miss the entrance and end up in the community center parking lot. The manager told me that they aren't really running an RV park, that it's mostly used for shows and special events. Our's was the only RV there. - KD7UCH

If you absolutely love the sound of lawn mowers, this place is for you. It's beautiful but it sure isn't quiet! Great for golfing, not for sleeping! - RV_CamperGuy

Sites are level and large. Beautiful landscape, pools, grounds. But the place is NOT dog friendly. They call 4 10x10 fenced areas with AstroTurf that stinks like strong urine a "dog area". Nasty and Inadequate to say the least. Feral cats are around the dog area in the evening for your enjoyment (Lord knows what parasites reside). Many signs everywhere to remind you that your dog is barely tolerated... "this is not a dog run" on all grassy areas. Supposedly a better dog park is coming in the future. Hope so. We'll see. There is another small dog area up by the entrance with natural grass that doesn't stink, but you have to exit the park and then re enter through the security gate. Kind of scary at night, and it's not fenced. - amejame

Stayed in our 13' Happier Camper amongst the massive high end motor homes. We were near the El Saguaro Clubhouse, in a site that backs up to the 9th hole of one of the golf courses. This is a very nice park. Lots of Snow Birds from Canada who typically are very friendly. Across the park road from us was a large lap pool, two spas that were probably about 15' square each, a large meeting hall with a bar that was open weekday evenings, an espresso bar, and a hair dresser. Down the park road was the main clubhouse which included a nice restaurant. The site was hard scraped with a short brick wall, and a view out onto the fairway water hazard. The rate included $69 for the site plus $10 for the HOA fee. On top of that was 12% tax. - DonB

to answer question about selecting a site, you can call the DS office directly, download the site map, or phone an owner of an available lot. it really is not that big of a problem at all. - Paul Namkoong

I am surprised there are so few who have reviewed this park. this a "10" by any scale. Sun, trees, paved roads, paved spots, large spaces, most back in, great people in the office, great, friendly people who stay here, 460 spots, 6 pools (one indoors), 5 hot tubs, two 'club houses', etc. Also more activities that you can believe: Pickleball, tennis, putting green, horse shoes, shuffle board, pool tables, ping pong, exercise room, bocce ball, line dancing, wood shop, ceramic shop, dance studio, library, bingo, pot lucks, special shows, dinners, dances, organized (and unorganized) card playing, quilting, sewing, trips off site, etc., etc. They average about 20-23 special activities per month. An OUTSTANDING Resort, and this IS a resort. Price is based on monthly rate. - Kalama Traveler

This is a "10" by anyone's standards. Six pools (one indoors), five hot tubs, activities beyond your wildest imagination, from ceramics, to dancing, to pickleball, to shows. Immaculately kept. Concrete pads, wide asphalt roads, VERY big rig friendly, and so are the people. This is our sixth year here, and we are coming back. - Kalama Traveler

Well, this one place I won't come back to. We were visiting friends close by so picked this place. Wrong. The office person was really gushy to the folks in front of me who were staying for the winter, but when it came to me, as an overnighter, it was night and day. She told me I was supposed to ask for a Good Sam rate. I didn't see a sign anywhere saying they were! So she got upset because she had to redo paperwork. I asked about the bathroom codes, she told me to read the site map...no directions marked on the site map either. I asked about the wifi....no comment. The back in site was OK to fit my 24 ft trailer without disconnecting. The bushes either side give privacy. The concrete pad location was sited that in order to put my slide out I had to put my wheels on the pad, like most of the other sites I saw. The wifi was good 50ft from the office then died, even with booster, there was nothing to boost. The interior roads are in rough shape and the rental place next door woke us at 5:30 am. - Tonyl

Stayed for a week. Not a bad park, nice pool & spa, lots of activities for RVers to partake in. Went with a group (7) and they did everything to keep us close together. Great staff. Lots of snowbirds stay there but plenty of room for nightly stays. Convenient to all areas of Palm Springs. Only problem we noticed is the rental yard next door up and at em early early during the week with beep beep beep from vehicles moving around. - dcfam

No frills, older park needing upgrades. Bathrooms clean but needs remodeling. The proximity to town makes it a good place to stay but definitely not a "resort"! Roads/sites mostly gravel and area dusty. - Stephenb

Typical KOA, long enough , level site so we didn't have to unhook the tow. Dog park was ok but we thought our smallest dog might be able to get under one gate. Everything worked. The trains were noisy but typical for RV parks next to train tracks or highways or between them. I would stay there again - Go often

Stayed here 2 nights in March. Nice park , well kept , on the edge of town , but very convenient for food and shopping. Nice folks with a great staff. Excellent sites that will only get better as the shrubs mature between them. We will definitely stay here again ! - DalenDeb

We've stayed here before. It is located adjacent to a high school, on Friday nights you may experience football games. But it was not objectionable. When I called for the reservation, I was given space 70. Upon arrival (after the office was closed) we were switched to site 73. Arrived at site 73 to find it previously assigned to another RV. To solve this issue, we pulled into the best suited open site for us. I'm sure we took someone's assigned site. This location was quiet and a very few children running around. Utilities were acceptable, didn't try the pool, cable or WiFi. Our site didn't have large trees but most sites do. The sites are packed gravel and somewhat level. The streets are asphalt. The grounds were neat and tidy. The are was windy but not that bad. Just windy to not extend awnings.
We did enjoy sitting out in the evening and watching the wonderful sunsets and sunrises.
For a pull thru, the site was just long enough for a 30' TT. Had to park sideways and barely made it.
Overall, it was quiet and will return again. - SD75mac

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

Very clean park with over 800 camping spots, two pools one for children and one for adults, bar, resturant and snack bars at each pool. I dont recommend camping here in August due to the heat. We will be back. - snarlin

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). One of our favorite spots when in California. It's steep and winding getting to and from the park, but worth the trouble to get there. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

This was an adventure! It was difficult to navigate the road up the mountain to get into with a 28'. I would definitely suggest daytime driving. The problem is the whizzers around the curve. We drove through Idyllwild on the way back and this was a lot easier to maneuver. The park itself is a challenge to find easy spots to get into, but it was worth the challenge. It is an interesting park being tucked up in the mountains and the trip to Idyllwild is definitely a must. The people are so friendly and dog friendly shops. We did lose the top of our fridge vent so be remember where you go go into you must come back out of. No internet except for the laundry areas. Take plenty of quarters. - ralinda

I was one night at this park. It happened to be fogged in so I did walk the area, I could only see about 200 feet.
My site was nice, and spacious in the woods. I was next to a long term renter.
This entire park is nestled in the woods, among trees and boulders. Driving through here in a big RV or with a big trailer is not for the faint of heart. My 24 foot van was no problem.
The road in is a pretty steep hill.
The Rangers that checked me in were very friendly and offered plenty of good advice about navigating the many roads in the park. - StormRunner

Nice wooded park. We were up top near the pool in a nice 50 amp site. Park was fairly empty because it was starting to get cooler. Many things to do in the area and casino's aren't too far away. We enjoyed our week long stay. - acampingfan
