Located just 10-miles from Palm Springs, Ca and 45-minutes to the entrance of Joshua Tree National Park.

In the subtropical paradise of southern California's Coachella Valley, the Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA offers guests a variety of amenities and activities in a beautifully landscaped resort-style setting. All RV sites are full hook-ups, or enjoy one of the new tent sites or deluxe cabins.

We pride ourselves on making sure that once you arrive you can stay active throughout the day with our many activities or just lounge around the pool letting go of the stresses of everyday life. Desert Hot Springs area Natural Therapeutic Hot Springs, discovered by Cabot Yerxa on a piece of land appropriately called Miracle Hill is where our campground derives its healing waters for our large swimming pool and three hot tub spas.  These waters have transformed the Desert Hot Springs and Palm Springs area into the popular vacation areas they are today.
This area is a mecca for golfers, with more than 80 golf courses open to the public and challenged by some of the best golfers in the world. There are over fifty-miles of hiking trails in nearby San Jacinto Wilderness or trek through the ancient sacred Indian Canyons. Joshua Tree National Park 45-minutes North of the campground showcases spectacular Joshua Trees and rock formations, perfect for rock climbing and bouldering. The resort city of Palm Springs is just 12-miles from us and offers a variety of shopping and dining including the famous El Paseo drive filled with shops and boutiques. Or spend a day at the outlet malls with over 200 stores. How about trying your luck at the many Indian Casinos located in Coachella Valley?

Be sure to visit the Aerial tramway that transports you up 2,643 ft to a spectacular view of the entire valley. We're also home to a myriad of Museums including the General George Patton museum, the critically acclaimed Palm Springs Art Museum and the Sunny Land Museum which many US presidents have called home during visits to our valley. Just down the road is world-class tennis featuring the BNP Paribas open.  And, of course, Coachella is the home to the Stagecoach and CoachellaFest Music Festivals. There are just so many things to do and see around this newest addition to the KOA-family of campgrounds, you'll want to come back often and stay awhile!

Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park. A fascinating variety of plants and animals make their homes in a land sculpted by strong winds and occasional torrents of rain. Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features add to the wonder of this vast wilderness in southern California. Come explore for yourself.
Places to GoFind out about different parts of the park, from must-see spots like Skull Rock and Keys View to the quieter areas around Cottonwood Spring and Black Rock Canyon.Things to DoThere's so much to do in Joshua Tree! Whether you're interested in a short nature walk or a strenuous backpacking trip, stargazing or joining a ranger-led tour of Keys Ranch, or something else entirely—you'll find information and inspiration on these pages.


Daily activities:  Check our website for updated events, programs, or demonstrations.Timing is important:In the desert, the morning can begin quite cool, but by noon, temperatures may be uncomfortable. It is recommended that you allow 3-4 hours to see the park and participate in some of the daily activities.The best time to see your favorite animals:Visitors who come to The Living Desert in the early morning are in for some delightful surprises! In the cool of the morning, most of the animals on exhibit are at their peak activity. Playing, some eating breakfast, catching the wind for the scent of other nearby animals, stretching and prowling. As the day warms up, so do the birds of prey, fanning out their huge marvelous wings to the sun. The tortoises and lizards come out of their hiding places to feel the gentle warmth. Warthogs and javelinas rout and romp in the morning hours, contentedly grunting during nap time in the midday sun. Meerkats seem to play all afternoon, each taking a turn being the lookout, while the others scamper about. Late afternoon is the wake up call to nocturnal creatures. The cheetahs often climb to the top of their ridge and majestically watch the sun set.Clothing:Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes, preferably closed toe. Dress accordingly to the season. Summer days can reach well above 100 degrees F / 37 degrees C. Even though most visitors think less clothing means cooler body temperatures, this is not true. Long sleeve 100% cotton shirts are the best to keep you cool. Allowing sweat to completely evaporate from your skin will make you hotter and dehydrate quicker. Hats, sunscreen, even an umbrella is recommended for all seasons. Winter day temperatures sometimes warrant a jacket or sweater. For the health, safety and comfort of all guests, shirts and footwear must be worn at all times. Provocative, revealing, or offensive clothing and bathing suits are prohibited. Disguises, costumes, or articles of clothing that conceal a visitor's identity are also prohibited. Park admission may be denied if clothing is deemed by management to be inappropriate.



What's at the top?There are two restaurants, a cocktail lounge, observation decks, a small natural history museum, two theaters showing State Park and tram construction videos, a gift shop, Magic Memories for photo viewing, and over 50 miles of hiking trails along with other nature activities.How long does the tram ride take?Approximately ten minutes in each direction.

Visit the new Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA and stay in a desert oasis.



Located just 10-miles from one of California’s most popular destinations – Palm Springs – Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA (formerly the Desert Pools RV Resort) makes the most of the subtropical paradise of Coachella Valley. But that’s not all this location has going for it, owned by the Bell family’s Kampground Enterprises, Inc, this KOA is also conveniently located near one of the nation’s most popular national parks.

“Joshua Tree National Park has become an increasingly popular destination in recent years. It saw an extra half-million visitors in 2016 and the national park campsites regularly sell out,” Josh shares. “We’re glad to offer a camping option with 45-minutes of the park entrance.”

Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA

Manager Joannie Stevens agrees, “After spending the day hiking in the dessert, rock climbing or taking a scenic drive through the park guests are always glad to come to a campground with lots of amenities. The ice cream is especially popular.”

Some of the many amenities at the campground include a relaxing resort-style pool and three hot tubs, all fed from therapeutic natural hot springs. Pickleball, horse shoes, shuffleboard, billiard and rec room, fitness room and a variety of activities are also available. Bike rentals, miniature golf and a playground are perfect for kids, and a newly completed Kamp K9 awaits four-legged campers.

“We’ve added a new Kamp K-9, tent sites with water and electric, new picnic tables, and propane campfires since traditional fires aren’t allowed in the desert,” notes Josh.

They’ve also added a new WiFi system and a store with a small gift shop that Josh says, “our repeat guests have really noticed and appreciated.”

Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA Pool

Those guests present a wide range of visitors from families to international travelers to a vibrant snowbird community. For the latter group, the fact that the campground is non-membership is a big draw.

“We are excited to offer a campground location in Palm Springs/Palm Desert that is a non-membership park–so everyone is welcome whether for an overnight stay or all winter long,” says Joannie. “That means we can offer great family camping experiences and still maintained the active snowbird community that has been here for many, many years.”

To serve their overnight campers and snowbirds alike, the campground offers newly installed Tent Sites in addition to comfortable RV Sites with 50-amp service and full hookups. Deluxe Cabins, which feature private baths, full kitchens and linen service are also popular with camping guests.

In fact, the popularity of Deluxe Cabins means more will be added in addition to a host of other updates. “In the year ahead, we’ll add 16 Deluxe Cabins, new Glamping Tents and new Deluxe Patio Sites,” Josh announces. “Those will enhance the experience of our existing pickleball courts and hot spring-fed, resort-style pool and spa.”

Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA Playground

Located at 70405 Dillon Road in Desert Hot Springs, the Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA is one of more than 500 open-to-the-public KOA campgrounds in the Kampgrounds of America system in the U.S. and Canada. The campground welcomes seasonal guests as well as overnight visitors and is pleased to offer discounts and Hot Deals. It is open year-round.
