Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA

Desert Hot Springs, California

Hollywood's biggest names have long retreated to this desert oasis in Southern California's Coachella Valley. You'll feel like a star yourself at the campground, surrounded by desert landscaping and indulging in all its amenities. Bask in the sun at the large pool and soak under star-filled skies in the therapeutic waters of three hot tubs, all fed by natural springs. Play pickleball, rent a bike or join in a robust schedule of activities (some seasonal) such as line dancing, card games, yoga and geocaching. Snowbirds welcome! Conveniently located just 7 miles off I-10, you can be in downtown Palm Springs in 20 minutes, exploring the shops. It's less than an hour's drive to the entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, where the Mojave and Colorado deserts meet in a dramatic landscape filled with hiking trails and vistas. From Dec. to April, guided hikes depart right from the camp-ground on to local trails. Pool: Open all year. Your hosts: Roger & Joannie Stevens.
