To maximize cost savings, we spent most of our time in our Thousand Trails membership parks. The vast majority of our trip was spent in and around the Palm Springs area.
Like last year, most of our camping fees were spent at just a few RV parks. The lowest we paid was $15 for a boondocking spot at Joshua Tree National Park’s Belle Campground.
And fortunately, the majority had no nightly fee, with 52 nights spent at Thousand Trails Palm Springs (this actually cost us a total of $29 as we used our bonus week extension) and Palms Springs Oasis RV Resort.
