Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA

Palm Springs is deservedly renowned for its world-class facilities, so it should come as no surprise that the Palm Springs/Joshua Tree KOA is every bit as elegant and classy. Your RV camping experience can begin with a swimming pool and hot tubs that get their water from the natural springs that run through the area. Add to that an on-site miniature golf course and dozens of nearby regular golf courses, bicycle rentals, and a billiards and recreation room, and there is something for everyone in your party to do. If health and fitness are requirements, the campground has a commercial kitchen available for food preparation and an on-site gym and fitness room. If reading is how you enjoy your evenings, there is a camp library to check out when you arrive.The individual campsites have enough room for large motorhome rentals, and some sites have pull-through access. All sites have full hookups to ensure you have a comfortable stay, and there are restrooms with showers and laundry facilities to help you stay refreshed. Additional amenities include pickleball and shuffleboard, a horseshoe pitch, a dog park, and a camp store where you can stock up on necessities.Now that you are set up and ready to begin your vacation, there is an abundance of nearby attractions worthy of your attention. You could start with the Palm Spring Aerial Tramway, a quick ride through Chino Park to a peak where you will have spectacular views of Palm Springs and the surrounding area. There are hiking trails along this peak for you to enjoy, an observation deck and natural history museum, and a cocktail lounge and two restaurants where you can combine great food with eye-catching vistas. If you have small kids in tow, they will love spending some time at the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens where you can see tortoises and lizards, cheetahs, and a host of exotic animal species. The city of Palm Springs is a virtual museum of architecture on its own and if you like guided tours, there are several that will introduce you to the architects who designed and built the city, the Hollywood celebrities who live or have lived here, and the local folklore that adds a bit of spice to the factual details.

The Great Outdoors

Just a few miles east of Palm Springs/Joshua Tree KOA, you will find the Salton Sea, also known as the Salton Basin. This area has seen lakes rise and fall over the centuries, has been a salt mining resource, and a playground for the rich and famous. Today the lake has a higher saline concentration than the Pacific Ocean, and it is dotted with ghost towns along its shores. One of the towns, Bombay Beach, still has a small population and is situated a couple of hundred feet below sea level. Your Desert Hot Springs motorhome rental is how you will cruise the lakeshore at your own pace.If you like to challenge yourself, slightly north of Palm Springs is where you'll find San Gorgonio Mountain. It is a strenuous but not difficult hike to the peak which is well above the tree line. There were two crashes on the mountain in the 1950s, a plane which crashed during a storm and a helicopter attempting to rescue the plane crash survivors; some wreckage from them can still be seen on the mountain.High places aren't your thing? Then head towards Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, a desert oasis nestled among the Little San Bernardino Mountains. The canyon has a river that flows through it from the Mojave Desert downstream to the Colorado Desert, plus a number of trails for hiking. One of the trails uses a boardwalk to wind its way through the marsh and riparian habitats. While you're here, you can join in volunteer-led educational programs and observe the plants, birds, and animals that inhabit the area.

Exploring The Area

RV rentals in Riverside County are your perfect choice for camping at Palm Springs/Joshua Tree KOA and will satisfy your every need. There is nothing comparable to being behind the wheel of an RV and cruising the open highway, so make the most of your vacation by heading for San Bernardino in your motorhome rental. This is where you find, among other things, the site of the original McDonald's restaurant before it became a corporate chain; it has been converted to a museum with McDonald's memorabilia from every era and every country that has its restaurants. If you are motivated by religion or spiritualism, you will want to stop and experience the Pillars of God, a non-denominational outdoor site dedicated to prayer and meditation in whatever form you prefer.Heading out of San Bernardino you can go for a ride along the Rim of the World Highway to Bear Lake or head in the other direction to Newport Beach. This is where you will find a culture and lifestyle devoted to beach life, thanks to its perfect year-round weather. There are several museums and a beachside amusement park, plus five-star restaurants, inexpensive beach cantinas and cafes, and even dinner cruises.Whether your preference is for the inland desert or the coast, whatever you desire you will find here, and Palm Springs/Joshua Tree KOA is where it will all begin.


It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
