Palm Springs RV Campground

Palm Springs RV Campground

While it may be freezing in most of the country, Palm Springs in California is an oasis for anyone seeking a reprieve from the cold. Palm Springs is the perfect destination for anyone seeking some sun and a bit of cultural fun.

This January, celebrities, producers, and movie-lovers flock to Palm Springs for the Palm Springs International Film Festival. The festival will screen 190 movies from over 70 different countries, plus, there will be events galore. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled around town to spot familiar faces you’ve seen on screen at local Palm Springs thrift stores, film screenings, and restaurants! Palm Springs has a history of being an escape for Hollywood’s elite. People like Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant would come to Palm Springs for meetings and to enjoy the remote atmosphere of the desert, an oft-needed reprieve from the bustling and hustling of Hollywood. Catch today’s celebs at Melvyn’s Restaurant, which was once a regular spot for Sinatra. The Palm Springs International Film Festival will continue until January 15.

Also upcoming in February in Palm Springs is the Palm Springs Art Festival, taking place from February 16-19 at the Palm Springs Convention Center, which is located just 20 minutes from the Palm Springs Oasis RV Resort (Encore) and about 30 minutes from the Palm Springs RV Campground (Thousand Trails). The festival is in its sixth year and coincides with Palm Springs Modernism Week. There will be an opening night reception on February 15 and visitors will be able to browse art, purchase, and interact with artist throughout the festival. Be sure to visit the website ( for more information on specific exhibits.

    The Thousand Trails park was unique. The site we had was very small and near the front of the park. It was a truly amazing experience to hear the road traffic and passing trains all night, every night. This could be a fabulous park for people with hearing deficiencies, but never again for us.

      Hi Stephen – We’re sorry to hear about your experience. We’ll share this with our teams to see what we can do to improve. This is never the impression we want to deliver to our guests.

    Visited thousand trails in Palm Springs last April. Great park very clean and well kept. The only complaint is that their handicap access to their pool was not working! Not good for Ada accesability.

    • elsmarketing

      Oh no! Could you share when this visit was? We’ll look into this with our teams right away to make sure this has been addressed!

    Hi! Have only been to Palm Springs TT as far as Ca. goes.
    Will be going again in April. We love it there. Everyone is awesome!
    Would like to try Oasis but why when our membership gives us free camping. Well… you know what I mean.
    Palm Springs TT has made nice improvements, but they need the ping pong table back. Had fun with that around the pool. ( I know, it melted) lol
    I think a bit more care with the grounds around the sites would be nice but really… who cares! Lol! We love it there! Was glad to see the old fire pits removed, I had made a request about that a couple years ago. They were located in a silly spot right in the middle of your site and nobody use them anyways.
    Thanks for a good time!
    Also we camp at Cultus a lot in BC close to home! LOVE it there!!!!

    We were there in December 2016 with two of our grandsons. It was quite windy the 1st day and everything got dusted with sand inside and out. The grandsons learned to play pickle ball and shuffle board. We had a great time. Oh, If you haven’t been to House for dinner, It is absolutely wonderful

    • elsmarketing

      We bet pickle ball is their new favorite sport! Such a fun game to watch and participate in. Thanks for the feedback, we hope to see you again soon!

    • elsmarketing

      Great question! Our Thousand Trails Camping Pass is $565 for 30 days of camping, and $4 per day for each additional stay. We recommend giving our teams a call to discuss your options and any additional questions you may have: 1-877-730-5935

    I’ve been coming here (1000 Trails) for 9 years. Love the improvements with the new pickleball courts. Renovations, painting, new cabins are also great. Downside is the dirt and sand, especially when the wind blows or it rains. Being a full time RVer I’ve spent time at the Voyager in Tucson. Covering all that sand and dirt with gravel at the Voyager solved that dirty problem. Very clean. Palm Desert’s dirt and sand problems could be solved with the same treatment.

    • elsmarketing

      Hi Wayne – Thanks for sharing this with us; we truly appreciate the recommendation! Given the Palm Springs climate, we can understand the frustrations of sand/dirt being an issue. We’ll have our teams review your feedback and address.

  6. Duane

    Stupid timing for this article. Film Festival almost over. Probably can’t get a campsite anytime this winter, much less in the timeframe of the art festival

    • elsmarketing

      Oh no! We’re sorry about the timing. We recommend giving our park a call to discuss other local events coming up. Our teams are always here to help!

  7. Robert Zarit

    We have been to the Palm Springs Park many times. It is OK. Could be updated. Clubhouses are old. Bathrooms were in need of updating the last time we were there. Hopefully they have been remodeled.

    • elsmarketing

      Hi Robert – Thanks for sharing this feedback with us. Maintenance is a top priority and we want to make sure our teams are reviewing your feedback. Customer feedback helps us to make improvements to our park, so we’ll make sure our team addresses this.

  8. Russell

    One of the worst sites ever. Wind , sand and goat heads pierced my bicycle tire. The park grounds were so bad it was very differcult to walk my dog.

    • elsmarketing

      Oh no! We’re so sorry to learn about this. We know the dust in the Palm Springs area does get blown around when it’s windy, our teams work to address this as much as we can. We’ll alert our teams of your feedback!
