Getting ready for Next Season

The park is pretty slow right now - of course all the snowbirds are gone and even most of the year round people have headed off to cooler temperatures. We get three or four nightlys almost everyday, the base is busy so we have quite a few contractors and Marines and families, almost all the cottages are rented so that keeps us busy.

Had a group of local kids try and sneak into the pool about 12 of them, raising a ruckus, so we had to throw them out, the pool and facilities are for residents and guests only. They had a ball and were jumping around in the deep end and sadly did some damage to the drain covers. The day before we had just had the County inspector for the pool and all the food and drink coolers checked and we got a perfect rating, they tested the water and cooler temps, hot tub temp and did a water check, so we were pretty happy.

The same day we sent the kids packin, another pool inspector came by about half an hour after we got rid of the kids and lo and behold the inspector discovered the broken pool drain covers and red flagged the pool. We called our pool service and he came out and tied to fix the covers but they were cracked and the bolts were broken off in the pool bottom, so he needed to drill out the broken screws and tap the holes for the new covers. For some unknown reason he refused to use an electric drill in the pool???

So that evening we drained the pool - huge expense and a ton of water.We apologize for the inconvenience for our customers.

Pool Draining at night.

The next morning first thing we replaced all three drain covers and really cleaned the pool bottom...

We called the inspectors and they came right out and allowed us to open the pool as soon as we had water back in it, which took most of 2 days...

The other big project is painting the kitchen.

Summer Visitors

Even with the extreme heat wave all over the Southwest US, Joshua Tree NP and the surrounding area is a wonderful destination and the amenities (pool), electric hookups makes 29 Palms RV resort a welcome reprieve from the heat.

Last night we had a caravan of 12 rental RV's finishing a 90 day tour of the US from Chicago to California, it was a group from Germany and had a tour leader. They return the RV's in Los Angeles tomorrow and head home, we are happy they spent their last evening here in the RV Resort.

Their last night orientation...

Time to make sure you have your site reserved for this winter, the phone has been ringing off the hook and premium sites are filling up. We still have plenty of space available and will welcome some new faces to our regular winter crowd.

Make plans to winter in Sunny California 3 miles from Joshua Tree NP and enjoy the park activities and the hiking and sightseeing in Joshua Tree.
