I have stayed at Sams Family resort twice now and loved it both times. The pools are clean and they vary in temp from mild to very hot. The swimming pool is large and warm as well. The location is away from town, nice and quiet. It is an easy drive to Desert Hot Springs. We ate at a local... More

The RV sites can handle big rigs but most are back in sites. Good 50 amp power and most of the sites are pretty level. Brand new pavement on the streets and the pools are awesome. Each RV site has a cement patio and small picnic table. The RV park is separate from the mobile home section. The store has... More

We found a very relaxing and welcoming place to stay following a hot day in Joshua Tree National Park. The staff were friendly and helpful as we settled in and the pools were just the right temperature for everyone in our family to have fun. Our children (6, 7, 10 & 11) were able to have a great time. Could... More

Love the pool and hot pools and tropical setting. However, they are unfair to tenters. They only allow one tent per sight while the Rvs are allowed multiple pop-up outbuildings. We had to go purchase a bigger tent to stay here as we had 2 tiny tents for my husband and I and our 2 children.

Out family called first to find out out if this was a family friendly establishment... We were so disappointed that the staff came multiple times to our site to tell us we were " breaking rules" We have a VW bus and our two girls have a small 2 man pop up tent.

Nothing much has changed. The place is meticulously kept, the pools are clean (and drained daily) and the peacocks and dicks still roam the grounds. The people are very helpful. Overall, a very pleasant place to stay.

This was our second trip to Sam's. The first trip was just a day trip, this time we stayed one night in the hotel. We have three children (4 yr, 3 yr, 3 yr). We really like the warm wading pool, the abundance of shade, lots of grass and picnick tables. We had a nice time on a somewhat crowed... More
