“Hot springs and solitude.”

Reviewed Feb 26, 2019

Overall Rating

Well cared for facilities. Sites are not level and require blocks but access is ok as noted prior. Cable will not work if park is remotely close to full. Somewhat of a drive to any services in Palm Springs but not an issue.

Came with a group of 6 RVs. We were all together in the 300 section , the spaces are a bit narrow but it was not hard to get backed in with a bit of help. Enjoyed Soaking in the hot Spring pools. Park is clean and tidy but power pedestal was worn and I had to put side pressure to maintain ground WiFi actually works Out in that area... more

“Narrow sites”

Reviewed Feb 28, 2018

Overall Rating

The sites are extremely narrow. I couldn’t even get my bin open to get to my water hookup. And I saw several RVs that were parked up against or within inches of posts/electrical boxes. The pool area seemed lovely, but I didn’t even get that far. I left after the second site I pulled into (and kind of fit) didn’t have ground electric. F... more

“Last-minute spot that did the job!”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We were supposed to stay at Joshua Tree, but on the day we were meant to check in, the government shut down. As we couldn't find a concrete answer as to whether or not the campgrounds would be open, we made a last-minute decision to call Sam's instead of risk driving all the way into the park and risk having to turn around. The int... more

We had to find a place to stay when we were told we'd have to leave Black Rock Canyon Campground in Joshua Tree National Park on a Friday morning as it was all booked up for the weekend. We looked around a bit online and found Sam's. We had no idea what to expect as we arrived, the reviews were good, but on the drive over we almost ... more

“Family Friendly Hot Springs”

Reviewed Nov 30, 2017

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our stay at Sam's. They had a large campground with a motel, mobile homes, and plenty of RV spots. The spots were decently sized, but difficult to back into if your a large rig (truck+41' fifth wheel). It took us a couple turns to get in, but with the help of some neighbors we made it! The hot springs were very nic... more

“We’re regulars ”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2017

Overall Rating

Great pools, beautiful views, water to cool off in, unless it’s 100+ degrees, in which case get a motel! We’ve been coming here for 20 years and the place hasn’t changed much. We always choose a site in the “outback” where the views are better, and where it might be windier. Winter is the best time here.

“Easy going”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

We don't stay in many campgrounds, in large part because I don't do rules, also I'm cheap. I really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere here, you simply pull in, pick a site and setup camp, even for a monthly rental there are no reservations or anyone telling you where to camp. They didn't bitch about my dog's breed or when I washed the t... more

“An inexpensive place to stay for a month or more.”

Reviewed Dec 06, 2015

Overall Rating

We booked a month here even though we were only staying a couple weeks because a month is cheaper than two weeks even with electric added on. Very strange! The park is dirt and sand with a concrete patio. Sites are very unlevel even though they don't look it. Three out of the four of us had to use several blocks to get level. The ... more

This is a large park with permanent park models throughout the property. Sites are full hook-up and are pretty close together. I had called to reserve a spot and was told they didn't take reservations. Then when we arrived, they asked if we had a reservation. Either way you choose your site when you arrive. We lucked out as we... more
