We recently stayed at the Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, CA. My wife had to attend court as a witness in a trial and we decided to make a camping trip out of it.
This RV Resort is very easy to get to as it is near the 10 Freeway which is considered a major interstate freeway here in Southern California. Regardless of where you are coming from you can easily get to the 10 freeway.
As you would imagine, I wasn't super thrilled to camp in the area in late June as the temperatures can easily go over 100°F during the day. The Air Conditioner in my fifth wheel sure worked overtime on this trip!
The first thing you will notice when arriving is just how big this place is. They claim to have 700 RV sites on a 55-acre piece of land. As a bonus, this RV Resort is gated for added security.
One of the things I liked about this RV Resort is how close it is to just about anything you need. From fuel to restaurants, home improvement stores, and retail stores (ex. Target, etc.).
That being said, the downside is the added noise, especially at night. I am a light sleeper and I could hear the odd vehicle from the nearby road. Additionally, at one end of the Golden Village Palms RV Resort, there is a Home Depot that adjoins the RV Resort.
During the night I could hear the forklifts moving product in and out of the store. Not sure if this is typical but you may want to pick a spot on the other end of the resort if this might be an issue for you.
Like most upscale RV Parks this one offers quite a few amenities. They have 3 swimming pools, a gym, a laundromat, a business office, a library, pickleball courts, putting greens, tennis courts, horseshoe pits and volleyball courts with sand!
We travel with our two furkids all the time. They have traveled over 20k miles with us in our fifth wheel. The park allows pets and have fairly strict rules as you would expect from this type of RV Resort. They also have 3 Dog Runs that are grassed and...
Not only does this RV Park have excellent cellular coverage (5G with AT&T) it also provides really good WiFi. Most parks have below-average WiFi and can be cumbersome to connect to but not here. We connected all our laptops and iPads easily and the performance was good enough that you could conduct business. I did not connect to it for streaming (ex. Netflix) as I don't think that is appropriate.
We had excellent customer service during the booking process and the onboarding process. One small hiccup though. After we got settled in we noticed one of those garbage bins was in the middle of the road near our campsite. I figured someone would move it soon. After almost a full day in the road, I decided to call the front desk to let them know. They were extremely apologetic and said they would send someone out ASAP. 48 hours later it was still in the road, even though several of the park's maintenance people drove by in their golf carts overflowing with trash.
UPDATE: My wife had to process payroll for her company while we were here camping and realized last minute she needed to print something out. She called the front desk and they said "no problem. email us the spreadsheet and we will print it for you". Now that is what I call customer service!
Special Shout out to Juan's Rotisserie Chicken. We ordered a bunch of food from them and their Rotisserie Chicken was off the hook. If I am ever in the area again I will definitely order from them again.
