Sam's campground is in Desert Hot Springs, CA right by Palm Springs. We were referred here by a friend. It is really one of the only options for a family in this area because most of the campgrounds are age-restricted (55+) or $100 or more per night. The monthly rate for Sam's is $560 which is super cheap. They don't take reservations, so it is always first-come-first-served. The sites are all full hook up and it is just a short walk to the hub where there is a heated pool and baby pool both fed by the hot mineral springs and 4 smaller, hotter pools under the awning.
Each of the 4 mineral pools gets hotter by 1 degree, so you can pick your temperature. Just like they have done since the 1970's, the pools are filled, drained, and cleaned every day so they don't have to use any chemicals...just pure spring-fed mineral water.
