Below are links to photos I've taken of most of the popular RV parks within this prime resort area. No park has paid a fee to be included.
For years we've been taking first a travel trailer and then our motorhome to the Palm Springs area for several weeks every winter. We now own a lot (#394) at Outdoor Resort, Palm Springs that we rent out for much of the year (not available for rent December through March - that's why we bought it!). Lot rental information is HERE.
Located in the desert about 100 miles east of Los Angeles, the warm and sunny winter climate can't be beat. Long ago promoted by movie stars and televised golf tournaments, the entire Coachella Valley is a popular, year-around vacation and retirement area that includes the communities of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Indio and Desert Hot Springs.
E-mail "jlkoski1 (at) att.net" if you have suggestions for parks I've missed or other comments. I value your feedback. Please don't write asking about specific RV park information, recommendations or reservations! Call the park directly.

Food for thought.... I saw this on a bulletin board at a Southern California RV park. Best we pursue our dreams now, while we have the energy to do it! Our friends Barry and Sue (while in their late-50s) rented out their house near San Francisco, bought a used 42' sailboat and spent two years sailing the South Seas and then on to Australia. After sailing down the California coast, it took them 24 days to sail from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to the Marquessas, French Polynesia. "Down Under", they sold their boat and traveled in a small motorhome for almost a year.
