Today we only had about a 70 mile drive to our park in Indio. Since we had such a short drive, we stopped at the Super WalMart in Palm Desert to buy some groceries. Then, it was on to the park we'd reserved for one night.
We had chosen Indian Waters on Jackson Street in Indio, CA. It is a Western Horizon membership park that also accepts AOR, ROD, Coast to Coast and RPI affiliates. We reserved it about 90 days ago through our Resorts of Distinction (ROD) program as the cost is FREE. We like free.
Since this is prime "snow birdy" season, the primo spots go to the Western Horizon members. Premium sites have grassy lawns, full patios, and full hook-ups. This is one row of the Premium sites.
Us folks that come with a membership affiliate program get the "cheap seats," although they aren't bad either. We have a very level concrete pad for the RV which is long enough for the car to park behind the motorhome. There are nice gravel separations between each site. Bad thing here is that you only have Water and Electric with 30 amp. Since it is only for one night, we were OK with that. However, I would not spend 2 weeks here without full hook-ups. Here is our Tour in site #271.
They have very nice facilities here and well landscaped grounds. No matter which program you use to make your reservations, everyone is invited to take advantage of all the programs and facilities within the park.
They have a beautiful stream running through the back area of the park. There is a beautiful swimming pool, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoe pits as well. They have a social hall for seminars and bingo games and there is also a Dining Room which serves meals for purchase on Saturdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. As typical of snow bird parks, they had a list of activities and programs as long as my arm. You should always be able to find something to do around here.
We will be on our way to Winterhaven tomorrow morning. We are staying for 5 nights there. Indian Waters is a very nice park, but since we cannot have full hook-ups in this prime season, we most likely won't come back to stay. If we come back to the greater Palm Springs area, there are 2 other member parks we can choose from that do allow full hook-ups. We just thought we'd check this one out on our continuing journey south. Since we purchased our campground membership program back in 2001, we figure we might as well make it work for us now that we are fulltime RVer's. We strive to stay at as many of the parks within our various systems as we can.
Life is good. The weather is fine. We are happy (and that includes Annie).
Until next time.....so long for now!
