Fountain of Youth Spa, Your Perfect Desert Getaway!

The Fountain of Youth Spa is a real paradise in the Southern California desert between the Salton Sea and the Chocolate Mountains. The sunsets and views are exceptional, and the community is very welcoming. There are almost 1,000 sites to accommodate all types of rigs. An easy drive from Palm Springs, it’s a popular destination for active snowbirds. Sites are 50 amps and hi-speed cable internet ready.

A stay at Fountain of Youth is rejuvenating and fun. Built around artesian mineral water, the resort offers two large pool areas, a new lap pool, four hot spas, a mineral spa and steam rooms. A variety of water exercise classes are offered daily. There is also a Beauty Salon and Massage Therapy clinic. Guests enjoy an active & social lifestyle with almost 100 planned activities weekly, plus special events, trips and cruises.

The resort has two world-class tennis courts, with paddle tennis & pickle ball lines, six beautiful bocce courts, and a walking course. For those who love hiking, there are options for all levels from popular desert trails to a vigorous climb to the top of one of the Chocolate Mountain peaks. ATVs, biking, disc golf, and horseshoes are popular. There’s also a nine-hole desert golf course, a well-stocked Convenience Store, Café, and beautiful new homes for rent or sale. A twice-weekly produce market is full of fresh local delights, and the monthly Flea Market is a favorite.

The Camper's Guide to California!

Get the Guide

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
