Policies of Thousand Palms Resort
The staff and management of Thousand Palms Resort respectfully request your attention to this set of policies we use for the safety, comfort, and enjoyment of all of our guests.
- Drive Slowly- Because our roads are used by pedestrians, bicyclists and golf cart operators as well as motor vehicles, the speed limit is 5 mph for all vehicles and everything else with wheels.
- No Dumping- All wastewater at the resort is collected, treated on site and returned to the ground. As such it is essential that only natural waste and safe household wastewater is flushed into our sewer system. Material that doesn’t breakdown naturally in water, such as cigarette butts, diapers and feminine products, should never be flushed. In addition, do not flush products that could be toxic including unwanted medications or harsh chemicals. We will advise and or assist you in the safe disposal of these materials. Only registered guests may use the sanitary dump station or sewer connections at the resort for disposal of wastewater.
- No Fireworks - Fireworks of all kinds can be dangerous and disruptive and are therefore not allowed at the resort.
- Unlicensed Vehicles- Golf carts, scooters and ATV’s may only be operated by licensed drivers at speeds of 5 MPH or less on designated resort roads and paths. Vehicles may not carry more passengers than they are rated for, and must have effective mufflers. Nighttime operation also requires the use of headlights.
- Campfires- Campfires must at all times be contained, attended, and controlled to limit flame height to no more than three feet. Only untreated firewood and charcoal maybe burned. Trash, lumber and other products may not be burned at any time. Management may ban campfires at any time there is a Red Flag warning or whenever a fire is otherwise deemed unsafe.
- Emergency Access- Roadways may not be blocked or restricted in any way that would impair access by large emergency vehicles such as firetrucks. As such, parking is not permitted on streets.
- Use Caution- Thousand Palms Resort operates as a campground and resort for outdoor recreation. The resort cannot be held responsible for the inherent dangers of the natural environment or carelessness. Users of the resort must recognize the inherent dangers of the outdoors and take extreme care to avoid injury from trees, rocks, uneven ground, darkness, wildlife and other hazards. Please report any dangerous situations to the office so that they can be addressed.
- No Violence- Violence of any kind is strictly prohibited and all persons involved in violence will be expelled without regard to fault. Just don’t let it ever happen.
- No Weapons- The use of weapons for any purpose is prohibited at the resort. While hunters and others may bring weapons to the resort, they must have a valid permit, insure that the weapon is not loaded and that it is kept in locked storage while at the resort.
