This is a lovely county park, beautifully landscaped and groomed. Lots of space between most sites. On the east side of the park is a middle school and sports fields which meant bright lights at night and noise. The tent camping area is on the other side of the park along with stocked ponds where you can fish for a small fee. Also a swimming area with a water slide, rental paddle boats in season and at least two separate playgrounds. The park is large enough to take a nice stroll. It is about 5 miles to the small town of Oak Glen where apples are in season Labor Day to Thanksgiving.

This is a great place in the off-season. We were here midweek and lots of sites were available. Weekends and summers fill up fast. It's 1.5 miles on a trail to the beach. There is quite a bit of ups and downs on the trail so it is not just an easy ride or stroll. Sites 1-67 have water & electricity, the rest have no hook ups. Off season rate for hookup sites is $29 with $2 discount for seniors.

The section of this Western Horizon park for regular members was very nice, with concrete pads fully surrounded by green grass, and lots of shade trees and full hookups. However, if you are visiting on an affiliate membership or something like CampClubUSA you are relegated to what appears like an overflow area with water & electricity only. It also has concrete pads but just gravel all around. The trees were not mature enough to provide any real shade. Plus, that area is near the streets, so its noisy. Unless you really like the "thump-thump" of car boom boxes, do not take a site near Jackson Ave. It continued until past midnight and started again in AM. The WIFI is painfully slow with speeds of 1-2 Mbps, which the WIFI "expert" told me was the normal top speed there. However, I must add I was about as far away from their WIFI equipment as was possible and still be in the park. The staff we had contact with was friendly, and the amenities looked good, although we did not make use of them. We won't be going back there. We had a "limited" membership so the fee was $2 for electricity and $1 for WIFI.

We booked one night at this beach location, about 2 hours from our home. We drove in and right back out. It is nothing but a small parking lot with each site just a regular parking space. There was absolutely no room between RVs. No privacy at all, and I'm sure every sound from your neighbor would be heard. It was milling with people. Plus they lock the gate at 8 or 9 PM every night so forget about going out to dinner or such. If you absolutely want to stay at a beach location, give it a try. But we are not that desperate! Near my home at the beach is a city RV area right on the beach where the sites are the size of six regular parking spaces and you get water & electricity hookups. You pay more but the experience would be much more pleasant.
