A Popular RV Campground in California

Palm Springs RV Campground is the perfect RV park in California for a weekend getaway or a long-term hiatus. Nestled in the beautiful Coachella Valley amid 805 date palms, this 25-acre preserve is a popular winter vacation destination. A golfer's paradise, Palm Springs and our RV camping park offer access to numerous well-groomed courses in what has become one of the most recognized locations in the world for this activity. No matter what you enjoy, there is something for you at our RV camp in this expansive California desert community!

At Palm Springs RV Campground, there are numerous beautiful and natural attractions that await, such as Joshua Tree National Park, Thousand Palms Oasis, Indian Canyon, the Living Desert Wildlife and Botanical Preserve as well as the Santa Rosa/San Jacinto National Monuments. Stay with us at our RV camp in California and take in breathtaking views of the mountains and the Coachella Valley from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway as it lifts you up 8,000 feet to the peak of Mt. San Jacinto.
