Tapo Canyon Park, Simi Valley, California

Date of Stay: April, 2009 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night this time. The park was more than half full, but still had one site available at dusk on a Saturday night. The park host is friendly and helpful. The gate appeared to be chained when we arrived at dusk. It seems that the park "closes" at 7:30pm. That appears to mean that it is closed to day use at that time. The chains are simply wrapped around the gate. Get out of your vehicle, unwrap the chains and in you go! Note that as you proceed north on Tapo Canyon road toward the park you will come to a "Dead End" street sign. Keep going! The park is a short ways further and there's lots of room to manuver your rig. We had no trouble manuvering or parking our 39' motorhome. This is a very nice, quiet park with the conveniences of Simi Valley nearby. Grocery stores, Cinema, whatever you need is a mile or two away. We camped at Tapo Canyon Park in a Motorhome.

Tapo Canyon Park, Simi Valley, California

They re-opened this park in the spring of 2008, after fires and floods had destroyed it back in 2003/2004. We missed the notices about it opening. I counted 17 RV sites, with concrete pads and full hookups. Behind the concrete pads is gravel that looks just fine for wheels if you need to do that. So there's no problem with big rigs. There are toilets and showers that are nice, they are new and clean (should be about all the camp host has to do) It's first-come-first-served and self service. You put your check in the envelope and put the envelope in the box, the normal procedure. There's a 14 day limit, with 7 days off required before one can re-enter. The park is back in a canyon and is very pleasant and quiet. It's about 3 miles off the 118 freeway, north on Tapo Canyon Road. You just keep going north until you see it on the left. The park is 11 miles from the Regan Library in Simi Valley. Note that the Ventura County Parks website I've listed is out of date. It does not mention the RV sites. We were there today, Tapo Canyon Park does indeed have RV camping and it's very nice! We camped at Tapo Canyon Park in a Motorhome.

Seems nice enough, however the gate is closed, chained and locked. There's a sign out on the main road announcing a new Industrial Park development. This campground has closed!!! We camped at Oak Park in a Motorhome.
