I made a reservation for a week in January but due to weather I changed my reservation for a week in March. Due to a family obligation, I needed to shorten my stay to just 4 nights. $124.00 weekend rate is ridiculous. I had no choice sense they already had my deposit.If you choose to go to Emerald Desert, ask...

Hi, thank you for the review and 5 Star rating. We are thrilled that you are going to return next season. Our pricing is based on demand and timing to the date of stay, and as you saw on your visit it is very busy all Winter long. Great move, reserving in advance as that locks in the best pricing...

Emerald Desert is a beautifully landscaped and maintained Resort. Lovely pool. Offers activities such as water aerobics, pickle ball and tennis, shuffleboard, bocce ball, plus more. The reasons we don't give it a five star are the noise of the trains which run frequently day and night. The tracks are close behind the garage storage area. The wifi is very...

Emerald resort in Palm Desert is a lovely place but noisy. We were disappointed with our pad. The cement was cracked and the sewer was down low in the cement and we were unable to hook up. If it wasn't for a kind man loaning us an extension do not know what we would have done. A train runs by...

Hi, we're sorry to hear that you did not have an excellent experience. We are in the process of identifying any cracked pads and improving the hookups to make them easier. Thank you for letting us know about the generators, as that is no longer an issue. We are glad that you were able to see the great benefits of...

We have chosen to stay the past two Decembers at this beautiful resort. From the moment we checked it, all our experiences have been very pleasant. We did have to change sites once, as we were not able to get satellite reception through the trees. However, cable tv is available at each site, so if we hadn't been able to...

Pros: really clean. Great, free and well maintained putting areas, horseshoes, and lawn bowling. First place we have been where we didn't need to ask quiet hours to be enforced. Super pool and nice fitness center. Very central location in town with lots to do nearby Minor complaints: train/freeway/surface street traffic noise was noticeable at beginning. Our area was the...

My husband, self and 2 dogs stayed in this beautiful RV resort in Palm Desert, California. The sites are great and larger ones available for bigger rigs. The grounds are pristine and the entire resort is very clean including laundry room and showers. His resort is family friendly but very quite while we were there in November 2016.

We love to stop at Emerald Desert RV Resort on our way to Arizona. Well maintained, easy on, off of HWY 10, nice large spots. The trains are numerous but after the 1st day you don't even notice them. The location of the park is a plus as you can get anywhere in 15-20 minutes. You get a calendar of...

The place is beautiful. Immaculately kept, the pool is large and very clean, wifi is pretty good, service is great, people are great. I'd stay here again but I'd bring noise protection because of the highway and railroad noise.

Thank you for the kind review. We hope you return in the future and request a site in our elite section, the sites are super spacious and they are on the far side of the resort with no noise intrusion. Safe travels,

We stayed at this park for a week last year on our way across the US (we travel from BC, Canada to Ft Lauderdale and back each year). It was just as lovely as we remembered it from before.

We set up in site 680 for four nights right across from the very large pool. Nice level site with awning facing east. Busy weekend due to Oldchella, but we met a lot of great people from all over the country. They had poolside music and a BBQ. The bathrooms, fitness center, laundry and sundry shop all top notch.
