About us

our Resort

Desert Shadows RV Resort is an adult, over-55, luxury recreational vehicle park located adjacent to Palm Springs, at the heart of the Coachella Valley, in Cathedral City, California. We are minutes from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and the other 10 cities in the valley.

The park was originally conceived and developed by Sidney Kibrick, who played 'Woim' in the Our Gang comedies of the thirties. In later life Sid became a real estate developer. One of his projects was an RV Resort in the desert near Palm Springs in a community called Cathedral City. There he built an RV Resort with many amenities which opened on October 20, 1984. Phase II opened January 17, 1988. His influence is still very much evident, from street names to facilities. He and other notable Our Gang stars have their handprints and signatures embedded in concrete at the base of the flag poles.

Built in two phases, the resort has a mix of 460 individually owned RV and park model lots. The resort is administered by a not-for-profit Home Owners's Association. All sites are paved and level, some are pull-thru. All sites have water, 50 amp electrical hookup, sewer, over 60 channels of cable TV, and telephone connections. Many owners rent their sites when they are away from the park. Renters are able to enjoy all of the luxurious facilities and, unlike some resorts, have the same privileges as owners.
