Campsites on the hill near the grass are good, but the price is a little high. The campsites below are dirt and hot in the summer. A larger pool is being constructed. A new water slide is in, possibly open after Memorial Day. Weekend entertainment is provided at the clubhouse. Nice campground to walk through, lots of trees, very beautiful views on the hill. Wintertime camping is beautiful; summertime is a little too hot for us. Fire rings, tables and chairs provided at most sites on the hill, don't know about the other sites. Good place for kids and dogs. Roads in the campground area need a little work.

Beach and ocean-front camping in a parking lot. The fantastic ocean view can be blocked unless parked in the front row. Reservations by mail only, well in advance (for weekends). Closed during the summer and during special events. Bicycle rentals are nearby and several restaurants and shops are nearby. The campground is very close to the long pier. Handicapped rate is $50 a night, regularly $60 a night. Dump station has 2 lanes and gets busy at checkout time. The pull-through sites are roomy. It can get a little rowdy. Bikes and pets allowed on the beach boardwalk. There is a dog beach in the area but not really within walking distance. Close to Southern California attractions. Fires are allowed in fire rings on the beach. We will be back as soon as we can get reservations in the fall.

As previously stated, this is not a resort, it is a campground. We live about 6-8 miles away and camp here frequently in the winter months (October through April). It is usually overcrowded and a bit loud on summer weekends. The sites are not level for drainage reasons, but our 34 foot motorhome could be leveled at most of the sites. There is a fire ring at every site. There is some shade at many sites. Picnic tables are provided. Restrooms and the park are generally clean except summer months can get out of hand. Great mostly paved bike/walking trail around lake (dam is now off limits). Hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and boating/rentals. Horse camping available. Great place to go in the wintertime. Reservations now required through ReserveAmerica. Water and electric with gray tank drain at the sites. Dump station with 3 lanes can get a little busy at checkout time. They do lock the main gate at 8 pm, so be prepared. Night access is through the back gate on the Moreno Valley side. We will be there again this winter.
