Falls short on change? Don't fret, rolls of quarters are readily available at the office!

Looking for a place to work out some sweat? Although we don't boast of a gym, an expansive desert adjacent to our park offers a playground for exploration and exercise. Your pet companions will also love to burn off their energy here.

Our park's indoor spaces are now even cooler, thanks to our newly installed air conditioning unit, a sure respite from the desert's ardent heat.

Exceptional Service: Nothing is Too Big or Too Small

We pride ourselves on our unwavering commitment to customer service. Whether you're dealing with a mechanical issue with your rig, exploring the park to select your ideal site, or staying longer than initially planned, our staff—Judy and the team—proves that no problem is too big or too small.

Celebrate the Joy of Togetherness, Exciting Activities Await!

From weekly ice-cream socials, delicious breakfasts, and dinners, to exhilarating karaoke nights, our activity schedule is jam-packed with a variety of engaging group activities to keep you entertained. Meanwhile, outdoorsy individuals can enjoy a game of shuffleboard, Boccia, or participate in other sports and pool activities.

Fit for Every Season, Fit for Every Traveler

Our park is a hush-hush gem that bursts with life and activity during the winter season (from November to April). But don't worry, we are suited for every traveler, regardless of the season. Flood issues back home? Come on over! Need a quiet spot away from bustling 55+ resorts? You've found your place! Want to experience southwestern desert charm? Look no further!
