Mercedes was an amazing host and the property has a nice view of the mountains, which was fun as we hiked Mt. San Jacinto the next day.

We stayed on a night where the neighbors decided to play loud music pretty late, which was a bummer, but the location and host were super fab. We laid a blanket out and laid under the stars, which was a great bonus. A bonfire pit and wood were provided. I also enjoyed the nice shower, which was warm due to the water being heated by the sun. Maybe bring some ear plugs and enjoy the view.

Magical! Mercedes is the perfect hostess. This spot has everything! City light view, but is quiet, relaxing. and close to everything. We were lulled to sleep by the sounds of distant coyotes and nearby water features. When we woke up I even took a stroll in the labyrinth. She even had a camp shower ready for us! We will be back!

Mercedes was very friendly and responsive. She sent us a list of attractions to explore around the area! My favorite nighttime activity is having s'mores on campfire, so I was very happy that the campsite has a fire pit. The firewood was provided, and we brought our own too with fire starter, so we were able to keep the campfire on for hours.

The campground has all the necessities that we were looking for: flat ground for tent, picnic table, fire pit, drive-up access. The shower tent setup for quick shower was a nice bonus!

It's a nice private area that we were the only campers there since there's only one campground on site. Be sure to prepare for windy weather. The tent might move around if it doesn't have something to weigh it down. Overall it's a nice spot to have a weekend getaway or short stay and explore the surrounding of Palm Springs area.

We had a wonderful time camping here, really enjoyed the place, especially having it to ourselves. Mercedes is a great host, responsive and very helpful. The shower that she set up for us every evening was much appreciated (the water was hot as well, warmed up nicely by the sun). There was plenty of wood for the fire warming us up after the sun went down. Thank you very much Mercedes, hope to be back!

This was perfect for our needs! There was a little camp spot set up with a fire ring and trash can etc but the property was large and we had the place to ourselves for the night. There were nice views of the mountains to wake up to. It’s basic but just what we needed for a night! The hosts were very attentive and excellent at communicating with us, despite turning up late. Thanks!
