Dog Areas in Desert Hot Springs

Located in the Coachella Valley, Desert Hot Springs, CA is sometimes referred to as the Desert Empire. As its name suggests, Desert Hot Springs is home to lush natural springs and breathtaking mountain views, which make it a furrific vacation destination for pet owners. Desert Hot Springs is one of a limited number of places in the whole world where you can find naturally occurring mineral springs, both hot and cold!

Like many places in California, the climate is desert, which means that the winters are very warm and the summers are hot. The probability of heat waves with temperatures over 110 °F is high, so make sure you bring plenty of water along for all your adventures here. Desert Hot Springs even has a veterinary hospital in town that will come in handy if you have any emergencies related to your pup's health. 

This scenic city is very dog-friendly and offers plenty of lodging accommodations that welcome pets. Desert Hot Springs Inn and The Spring Resort & Spa both allow canine guests, but have different pet fees and restrictions. If you and Fido pre-fur camping, you can head to Sands RV & Golf Resort or Desert Springs Spa RV Park.

Desert Hot Springs doesn't have any dog parks and only has one dog-friendly restaurant, but what it lacks in dog-friendly amenities, it makes up for in natural beauty and gorgeous weather!

    #1 South Palm Desert

    Around 21 miles away from Desert Hot Springs, you'll find a place where you can take your pup for some much-needed off-leash exercise: Cap Homme at Ralph Adams Park. This place has a designated off-leash area where your pup can run and meet new friends. Keep in mind that the off-leash park is not fenced. If you're in the mood for something a little different, visit the trails in the main park with your leashed pooch. The trails vary in length and difficulty so you can choose one to suit your abilities. The off-leash area is very big and flat, which is great for running, and the hiking trails are more demanding, so they're pawfect for hyperactive dogs. Bring water!
