I would give more stars if I could! I really enjoyed my stay here. The resort is just beautiful. The landscaping is immaculate, with lots of green areas to walk around with my dog :) The staff is very friendly and professional, especially Amanda (the GM) who seems to do a bit of

We stayed in a Villa. It was in very poor condition. Carpet was stained and dirty. Minimal pots, pans and glass wear. Stove is propane and a majority of the burners would not ignite. Had to use a separate lighter. Once ignited very poor control over the flames. Shower valve did

We stay every year. We do not come back. The management has no glue to run a RV resort. On December 25th the gym and also the pickle ball court was locked. No one from the office was available. On the registry they do not ask for discount membership (AAA or GoodSams). After

Crazy hot (we expected), biting flies were terrible as were biting ants. Facilities and grounds were immaculate. No discount for long term. Staff was unfriendly. Pool area is gorgeous. The bad feelings: told we could fit our truck in the drive. Nope. Had an argument w Genl Mgr

Hi, although we do not have picnic tables on site there is a central bbq area with plenty of tables as well as a beautiful patio deck overlooking the pool. Please request a site up close to the amenities and clubhouse and you will assuredly have a fantastic time as thousands of returning guests every year do.

Pet allowed?
Yes, definitely! We brought our 2 little dogs and took them for walks all over the park..on leash of course. There are 2 gated dog parks within the Emerald Desert Resort so your pet can run around off leash. It seems like the majority of Rvers all had dogs...so you will be in good company!

"Go to Executive Car Wash on Country Club and Washington to get your car washed. Excellent service and value."
"Sites on the south side are further away from the train track."
"Ask for a site away from the train tracks if the noise would bother you. It may help"
"Try to get a spot behind the bungalows. That might block some train noise."
