Coachella Valley Preserve Reviews & Ratings

  • Awesome place to visit. The scenery is amazing. Lots of lizards and other small wildlife abundant throughout trails. Staff was absolutely amazing. So knowledgable about the area. Very friendly & helpful. Ventured here early in my vacation & felt compelled to return before I had to leave. Such a beautiful place. 👍👍👍 you must go

  • Really cool oasis - definitely stop by if you’re in the area. Awesome trails and scenery. Great way to spend a couple hours with the family. Surpassed our expectations. Also get to walk across the San Andreas fault. There’s a sign you can get your photo with. Interesting plants and shrubs along the trails through the desert, on the way to the oasis.

  • Beautiful and unique stop, not pr average desert environment. The oasis has a boardwalk and trails so you can wander through the marsh like terrain. They run off donations. No pets allowed. Had the place to myself.

  • Beautiful place... An oasis in the middle of the desert. Palm trees nice trails. It was a real treat. The best part it was free to enter.

  • We met friendly people. The palms were very interesting. My son and I enjoyed about 30 minutes of walking. If you are wanting to stand on the San Andreas Fault this is a good place to do that.
