Lake Tamarisk Desert Resort is a 55+ RV and mobile home park with large RV spaces open to all ages throughout the year. Our RV spaces feature full hookups and allow well-behaved pets for no additional charge. The park is located in the largely undeveloped Chuckwalla Valley just 2 miles north of US Hwy 10 at the Desert Center exit. Come experience our peaceful desert and mountain surroundings with amazing sunrises, sunsets, and starry skies.

Lake Tamarisk Desert Resort is located halfway between Indio and Blythe, California. Keep in mind that the nearest gas station is 19 miles away at Chiriaco Summit.

Absolutely an awesome experince. I believe Catherine is the manager in charge and was so much help. every part of the park was in great shape. the bathrooms were cleaned every day.

Clean, quiet, peaceful, friendly people. It was more like a neighborhood than an RV park. We really enjoyed our stay.

Our stay at Lake Tamerisk was everything we needed. Had no issues we love that place. We definitely will be going back.

This park is really something else and I am very glad we found it! The staff was super friendly, helpful, and rather accommodating. There were a plethora of sites to choose from that were not only spacious but would fit any campers style or RV sizes. There were a lot of great amenities that took care of our needs. The location was beautiful as there were so many stunning views from all over the park and in the surrounding area. I liked how many great places there was to visit that was only a short drive away. Overall we had a blast and can’t wait to go back. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
