Resort Activities

Many activities take place at the resort during the winter season.

The Lake Tamarisk Desert Resort Hospitality Committee does a great job during the winter months, planning different activities to keep folks busy.  There are dinners, card games, movie nights, and much more.

OHV Activities

ATV lunch_jpgIf you are an ATV enthusiast or have a 4wd vehicle then you will enjoy Lake Tamarisk Desert Resort. Except for Desert Center, the Chuckwalla Valley is largely undeveloped desert, with  areas and roads just waiting to be explored by the off road adventurer.   The area is filled with mines, rock formations, historic sites and remote areas of quiet, undisturbed beauty.

Tuesday’s Standard Transport

Tuesdays in the winter join the resort members for an organized ATV ride.  Each week two groups venture out:

  • One group enjoys a faster-paced longer ride.
  • The second group takes a relaxing slower-paced, shorter ride.

Our residents can suggest some great riding spots, and give you the directions you need to get there.  A popular ride is out to the Praying Nun, Weeping Widow or Grieving Woman, whatever you call her, it’s  a popular rock formation at the foot of the Chuckwalla Mountains, just south of The Park.
