Pros: really clean. Great, free and well maintained putting areas, horseshoes, and lawn bowling. First place we have been where we didn't need to ask quiet hours to be enforced. Super pool and nice fitness center. Very central location in town with lots to do nearby Minor complaints: train/freeway/surface street traffic noise was noticeable at beginning. Our area was the...

My husband, self and 2 dogs stayed in this beautiful RV resort in Palm Desert, California. The sites are great and larger ones available for bigger rigs. The grounds are pristine and the entire resort is very clean including laundry room and showers. His resort is family friendly but very quite while we were there in November 2016.

We love to stop at Emerald Desert RV Resort on our way to Arizona. Well maintained, easy on, off of HWY 10, nice large spots. The trains are numerous but after the 1st day you don't even notice them. The location of the park is a plus as you can get anywhere in 15-20 minutes. You get a calendar of... More

The place is beautiful. Immaculately kept, the pool is large and very clean, wifi is pretty good, service is great, people are great. I'd stay here again but I'd bring noise protection because of the highway and railroad noise.

Thank you for the kind review. We hope you return in the future and request a site in our elite section, the sites are super spacious and they are on the far side of the resort with no noise intrusion. Safe travels, More

We stayed at this park for a week last year on our way across the US (we travel from BC, Canada to Ft Lauderdale and back each year). It was just as lovely as we remembered it from before.

We set up in site 680 for four nights right across from the very large pool. Nice level site with awning facing east. Busy weekend due to Oldchella, but we met a lot of great people from all over the country. They had poolside music and a BBQ. The bathrooms, fitness center, laundry and sundry shop all top notch.

We took our 27 foot travel trailer here to stay for the Desert Trip musical concert in October. We were expecting just a hook up and dry pad. We were very surprised with the high end service and the beautiful grounds. Our site was a large pull through and we had a little trouble positioning our trailer for the power/Water... More

We just spent 5 nights at our favorite RV Park. October 9-14, 2016. Everything was up to Emeralds standards. Clean restrooms. Nice workout room. Pool, spa all nice. The noise from I-10 and trains were standard. This time of year is a transitional time for their grass. Their normal green, lush grass was dead and dry. The gardening crew worked... More

Cancelled a reservation for October in June and was charged for one night even though the cancellation policy states one night charge if cancelled 31 days or less. Next time I'll hold onto reservation and cancel 32 days prior to date. Thought I was helping them get another booking by cancelling ASAP.

Thank you for taking the time to evaluate comment on the cancellation policy. the feedback is appreciated. Comments such as this help us as while the policy seems clear to our team, it obviously wasn't made clear either via the phone conversation, website and confirmation received after making the reservation.
