Palm Springs Camping ??????

Planning a trip to Palm Springs, CA. Can anyone recommend a Camp Ground or as they like to call them, "Resort" in the area. I am the proud owner of a 1994, 21' Sovereign, and a medium sized dog.
Thanks for your input.

Go to Google

in the search window, enter "palm springs camping"

you will get many pages of information that you can do research on.

Palm Springs is close to Joshua Tree National Park, which is a fine park to camp in and enjoy the desert. There are numerous camp grounds around 29 Palms, as well, close to Palm Springs, relatively speaking.

Woodhall's will also give you a list of Palm Springs campgrounds.

Palm Springs is in the low desert and since your coming all the way from Canada take some time to see the high desert. The Josua trees and rock formations should be seen.

From Palm Springs just take Hwy 62 and about 30 min. later you'll be in the Yucca Valley, Joshua tree, 29palms area. Lots of neat sights to see and more than a few RV parks.

You can boondock out in the desert if you want. For free! P.M. me if interested and I'll direct you to a few spots.

Please go to Joshua National Park and either camp there or just drive in and see the sights. Make sure you stop a Keys view.

Have fun and explore.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

Emerald Desert Golf & RV Resort


We've stayed at Emerald Desert Golf & RV Resort in nearby Palm Desert.

It is an upscale RV "resort". It is however right next to the I-10 freeway and train tracks - not exactly quiet in that sense.

The staff has been very friendly and professional.

Mostly filled with snow birds in VERY large and expensive moho's this time of year - or that has been our experience anyway. Aside from golf they host group activities for the seasonal guests.

But for us we have used it as an easy place to park off the fwy and stay while visiting friends in Palm Springs.

We have not been in a year or two - so could be different now...

Thanks for your input.

Check with travelinsue.

She is at a resort now.

Her trailer is the 1995 Excella, that was damaged.

Camping areas

When I picked up my last Airstream in Yuma I stayed in a nice county campground that surrounds a water reservoir in La Quinta. Next to PGA West. Very handy to shopping, quiet. Joshua Tree is not far up the road from there.

I loved the high desert of Joshua Tree but I was there this time of year and got caught in high winds and a blizzard up top. Had to come down as the furnace in the old Overlander had been recalled and I hadnt had time to replace it yet.
