Meet Your Hosts

Roger & Joannie Stephens

Our favorite part of managing this campground is watching it grow into its potential. It's like our home and we're really invested in it. Our guests are like family and we pride ourselves on guest customer service and facilities.

Roger and Joannie have been full time RVers for the past 30-years and spent the past 12-years right here at the Palm Springs / Joshua Tree KOA! They bring innovation and a passion for delivering a great camping experience from adding recreation and guest activities to finding new ways improve RV and Tent sites.

Originally from Helena, MT, Roger and Joannie have traded in fly fishing for hiking in Idlewild and taking in the therapeutic waters of the local natural hot springs. They are devoted grandparents and are a wealth of knowledge for great restaurants in Palm Springs.
