Aguanga is in the Southern California high desert, south and east of Los Angeles. You can look at some maps that help show where we are. The GPS setting of the Resort is N33.446, W116.87.
The town of Aguanga is a small community with a grocery store and post office at the intersection of California Highway 79 South and California Highway 371. Temecula is the nearest large town, 17 miles to the west. In our little corner of California, you will find the fastest growing commercial center in the area. It straddles Interstate-15 and is 43 miles south of Riverside and 56 miles north of San Diego. Temecula has a full range of restaurants and shopping facilities and a flourishing Wine Country.
By traveling 3 miles west of Jojoba Hills Resort on Highway 79 South then turn north on Sage Road (County Road R-3) and you will eventually reach Hemet. This road is not recommended for large RVs. Noteworthy for its pies, Julian lies Southeast on Highway 79. From Julian, travel on to Borrego Springs and points South. Going north on Highway 371, you reach the town of Anza. Beyond Anza, an intersection with Highway 74 provides the choice of heading to Palm Desert or the mountain resort town of Idyllwild.
If you are driving a big RV along the Interstate-15 corridor, the best route to follow is Interstate-15 to the Highway 79 South exit at Temecula. Then, drive east 17 miles on Highway 79 South to the Resort. The first several miles of Highway 79 take you on a four lane road through an extensive commercial zone. At the end of the commercial zone the road narrows to two-lanes with moderate curves and grades all the way to the Resort.
Driving from El Centro or Brawley, the easiest route
is to get onto County Road S2. This road turns off Interstate 8 at
Ocotillo, CA and travels northwest to intersect Highway 79 a couple
of miles south of Warner Springs. This route through Julian is scenic
with steep grades and tight curves.
From the Palm Springs area take Highway 74 from Palm Desert. The road is in excellent condition. It consists of eleven miles of narrow, winding road with steep grades and spectacular views. Turn off onto Highway 371 toward Aguanga. Turn right onto Highway 79 when you reach it. The Resort is about a mile from the intersection on the right side of Highway 79.
NOTE: California DOT restricts all roads leading to Jojoba Hills to motorhomes of 40 ft or less in length. Trailers are not restricted.
During the 1980s the Escapees RV Club sponsored regional Chapters of RVers who wanted to band together and co-operatively create an RV park. The members pooled their money to purchase land or existing parks. Using volunteer labor, they built first class RV resorts.

Work on the Resort began in November, 1989 on what had been the Lazy K Ranch. The ranch included a developed commercial trailer park that served as the base camp for the many volunteers who helped build the Resort.
During construction of the Resort
almost one million cubic yards of earth were moved. Five
miles of roadway were created. Thirty-five miles of utility lines
were installed. A water system consisting of three potable wells and
several miles of piping was developed. Two miles of storm
drains below and above ground were installed.
As a group, the volunteer men and women contributed nearly 292,000 work hours in the construction of the Resort. By 1994, the first of the volunteers moved their RVs into the finished part of the Resort ahead of the formal opening on June 26, 1996.
