desert palms,Joshua Tree N.P.area recomendations

My wife and I will be heading into the Palms Springs area the end of this week and were hoping to find a nice place to park our 36' motorhome for 3 or 4 days while exploring Joshua Tree N.P. and the surrounding area. Can anyone out there give us some ideas on some nice places to stay? We have never been in this area before and would appreciate any help. Thank you in advance for any help,Bruc.

Half of the campgrounds aren't open yet. They will open oct 1st. These cg are all primitive. Fill your tanks before going in. Few water lines spread thru out cg. Enjoy!

There is a commercial cg in Twentynine Palms which is probably the closest to the north entrance to Joshua Tree NP. It would also be closest to the visitor center. The commercial cg is nothing special but the hookups work and there is a dried up 9 hole golf course next door.
We like Shadow Hills in Indio. Very tidy, well landscaped with a beautiful pool. We usually get our motorhome washed and waxed by Rudy while we are there. Shadow Hills is located on Jefferson just north of I-10 and not too far from the Patton museum and the south entrance to the national park. Be sure to understand Shadow Hills' "no refund" deposit policy if you are interested in staying there.

RV Park

There is a nice little RV park in Yucca Valley, CA. Very near the North entrance to the park. Perfect place to explore the area. The elevation is high enough to temper the high temps in Palm Springs.

Hi bruc,
This is another vote for 29 Palms. While there consider a side trip to Amboy Crater. It is a small dot on a grey road North and east of 29 Palms. Rand McNally can find it. It is an extinct volcano that you can walk to and right up into the crater. Stop at the diner in Amboy for a bite to eat in a 50's/60's style diner.
