Valencia Travel Village

Castaic, California

Date of Stay:

We stayed 2 nights to see some of the sights in the area. The park is right along CA-126 a short distance from I-5. The access is at a controlled intersection. The entrance was changed due to construction so there are some tight turns to reach the registration parking area. The interior roads are paved with some very impressive speed bumps. The interior roads are very narrow and turns are tight with obstacles (metal poles at the end of the sites) making it difficult to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull thrus. The parking pads are compacted dirt/gravel. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat. A lot of the sites appear to be extended stay sites. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites which are on top of each other. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The connections were at the end of the site requiring long runs for hoses/cables and to disconnect a toad to shorten the runs. The sewer connection was slightly elevated so there was a slight obstacle to establishing a downhill flow. Not every site had an outside table and there were no fire pits. There were quite a few trees scattered throughout the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. The park information showed a 24 channel lineup but didn't mention anything broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was good. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was one designated fenced pet areas with a grass surface located in the center of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area and around the park. We would probably not stay here again if traveling through the area.

We stayed 3 nights to see some of the sights in the area. The park is right off HWY 395 several miles South of Lone Pine. HWY 395 is a 4 lane divided highway so getting into the park South bound requires crossing the North bound lanes. The interior roads are paved. Some tight turns and tree encroachment posed a challenge to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull thrus. The parking pads are irt/sand. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad or wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Park built on a slope. This park didn't understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites seemed to have a bi-directional pitch. The parking pad in our site had a swale so it was difficult to get level. Distance and sandy areas establish privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. But the surge protector revealed the LI & Neutral leads were reversed. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the site and stood above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow. There was a small wooden outside table and a fire pits There were quite a few trees scattered throughout the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. The park brochure showed 12 cable channels but no mention of any broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was slow. It wouldn't load pages. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was one designated fenced pet areas with a sandy surface located in middle of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. We would probably stay here again if traveling through the area as there are not a lot of choices.

We stayed 3 nights to see some of the sights in the area. The park is a little bit of a drive from I-15 (CA-79 Exit) along busy multi lane city streets. After getting to the casino grounds it was a little bit of a challenge to reach the park due to the construction and poor signage. Once at the park, it required a few tight turns to reach the registration parking. The interior roads are paved. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull thrus. The parking pads are concrete. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat. Some of the sites appear to be extended stay sites. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. "Standard" sites did not have an outside table and there were no fire pits. There were quite a few trees scattered throughout the park and around the perimeter so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. The park information didn't mention anything about cable or broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was difficult to connect to as the login page would not load. Had to enter the page address by hand. Once connected, the service was acceptable. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was one designated fenced pet areas with a grass surface located in a corner of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. Premium sites along the "I" row have a line of tall trees between them and the Southern sky so satellite reception would be impacted in this area. Didn't like having to pay $5.00 pet fee per pet per week. We used the hot tub & laundry. Laundry cost was $1.75 for wash & dry each. The machines were efficient, clean and convenient.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 6 nights to see some of the sights in the area and waiting out bad weather. The park is a short drive from I-15 (Exit 33: NV-160) along multi lane city streets. Getting into the park from I-15 is much easier than getting out of the park onto I-15. The entrance poses a little bit of challenge due to the portico that you drive thru and the angle of the road thru the portico. Access to the park is controlled by the staff at the gate. The interior roads are paved. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV's. The sites are a mixture of back-ins and Pull thrus. The parking pads are concrete. The P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park seems to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were generally level and flat. Some of the sites appear to be extended stay sites. Distance and gravel areas establish privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. There was an outside table but no fire pits. There weren't many trees on the side West side of the park but there were more trees on the East side, so satellite reception would be dependent upon your site. Park brochure showed a 36 cable channel lineup. The park provided WiFi was good. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There were several designated fenced pet areas with gravel surface located throughout the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. There was one area of the park where pets were not welcome. West side "Deluxe" P/T's would be our choice. Back in sites #208 to 272 where along the interstate so there was some traffic noise there. We would probably stay here again if traveling through the area.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 2 nights to make a day trip into Death Valley NP. The park is located on the outskirts of town requiring a drive through a residential area along 2 lane paved roads. The transition from the city streets to the park required negotiating a significant grade change posing a scraping hazard. Then a climb up a single lane paved entrance road to the registration parking area. Then yet another climb up to the site area passing over several speed bumps. The park was built on a significant slope. There was an attempt to tier the sites level but not all of them appear level. The interior roads are paved and sites are gravel. The roads and turns were negotiable. There was a mixture of pull through and back in sites. The P/T sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were at the rear of the site requiring parking at the rear of the site to reduce hose/cable runs. The sewer connection was at the ground level so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Distance and gravel areas establish privacy between the sites. There was not an outside table or fire pit. There seem to be some long term residents. There were a few trees scattered among the sites so satellite reception was dependent on site assignment. The park did not provide cable TV and there was no information about broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was "meant for casual use only; emails and light browsing" so we didn't try to use it. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception. There was fenced pet area in a corner of the park. The ground cover was small pebbles and artificial grass. There was a bag dispenser and waste collection station in the park. If we returned to the area, we probably would stay at another park in town.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 1 night passing through the area. The park is a short drive from I-70 (Exit 25) along a paved 2 lane rural road into the center of the very small town. The transition from the street into the park was not the smoothest but was manageable. Check in is accomplished in the convenience store but registration parking is limited and tight. The interior roads and site parking pads are compacted gravel. Some of the turns were tight and the arrangement of the sites to the road required making 2 loops through the small park to get properly aligned for utility connections. All of the sites are pull throughs. Some of the P/T's were just long enough to remain connected to the toad and the others were wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast if needed. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a possible leveling issue. They have full hook ups: water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were generally at the middle of the site. The sewer connect was slightly elevated but it wasn't too difficult to establish a downhill flow. Distance establishes privacy between the sites but the sites were generally close. There were a few wooden outside tables scattered around the park so each didn't have a table and there were no fire pits. A few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception was dependent on site selection or assignment. The park didn't offer any cable channels and there was no mention of any broadcast channels on the limited park information material. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park did not provide WiFi. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception. There was no designated fenced pet area. There was adequate space along the park's road to exercise a dog. We would stay here again for an overnight stop only.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 4 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites. While the park is centrally located along a 5 lane busy commercial road in the center of town, the access is very difficult due to the angle getting off the street, over the sidewalk and into the park regardless of which driveway you use. This arrangement posed a scrapping and collision hazard. Registration/Check in is in the hotel lobby at the front desk. While the park is identified as a Good Sam member which should entitle GS members to a discount, no discount was offered at check in. The hotel didn't credit points to our Best Western membership either. And Best Western would not honor our stay to apply the points without providing them a copy of our credit card statement even though we provided them a copy of the credit card charges from the hotel's receipt. The interior roads are paved through the hotel parking lot but gravel in the RV area and site parking pads are compacted gravel. There wasn't much room to maneuver through the RV parking area making the turns very tight. All of the sites are pull thrus. The P/T's were long enough to remain connected to the toad or parked directly in line. The park completely understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as sites are level. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were generally at the middle of the site. The sewer connect was slightly elevated but it wasn't too difficult to establish a downhill flow. Distance establishes privacy between the sites but the sites were generally close. The sites alternate facing direction so the utility connections or a shared table separate the sites. No fire pits but the hotel provided an outdoor elevated gas fire pit in the common area. There were a few trees scattered among the sites so satellite reception was dependent on site assignment. The park provided WiFi was excellent.

We stayed 4 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites. While the park is centrally located along a 5 lane busy commercial road in the center of town, the access is very difficult due to the angle getting off the street, over the sidewalk and down into the park. This arrangement posed a scrapping and collision hazard. We had made reservations in advance of our arrival. After we registered, paid for our stay and started setting up in the assigned pull thru site (#37), the staff informed us that we were going to have to move as the site was needed for a departing host. The site we were told to move to (#35) would not work for us due to the tree canopy and slope. Every excuse a woman who seemed to be acting in a manager role used to explain why we needed to move applied to the host she was trying to put in the site so there was no justification for us to move but she maintained that we had to move. She offered no compensation or incentive to mitigate this poor treatment that resulted in a significant inconvenience. This was the poorest customer service we have ever experienced in our 5 plus years of full timing. We tried to go to another park in town but they were full so we had to stay in this park. We ended up in a back in site that required extensive blocking in order to get level. The interior roads are paved and site parking pads are compacted gravel. There are a mixture of pull thru and back in sites. Some of the P/T's were not easy to get into due the angle from the roads. Some of the P/T's were long enough to remain connected to the toad but the others were wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast if needed. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a leveling problem. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. Don't stay here due to the poor customer service displayed by the female who seemed to be in charge! We would not stay here again!

We stayed 3 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites. The park is located in what appears to be a residential area requiring travel along a narrow 2 lane paved road that has seen better days. The park has the appearance of being a former KOA. It was very primitive showing not much care or attention to the appearance. The park was very disappointing but there isn't much to choose from in the area. The entrance to the registration parking and interior roads are narrow with tight turns. The interior roads and site parking pads are compacted gravel. There are a mixture of pull throughs and back in sites. Some of the P/T's were not easy to get into due the angle from the roads. P/T's were not long enough to remain connected to the toad but were wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast if needed. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a leveling problem. In the first site we were assigned (#39), the pitch was so great we couldn't get level. Had to move to a different site. Later, saw someone else struggling to get level in #39. Distance establishes privacy between the sites but the sites were generally close. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were generally at the middle of the site. The sewer connect was slightly elevated but it wasn't too difficult to establish a downhill flow. There was an outside table and fire pits at the sites but the environment didn't encourage sitting outside. It appeared most of the residents were long term. While the "resort" rules required that "all of the occupied sites appear neat and clean" it was clearly obvious that "neat and clean" was subject to interpretation.

We stayed here for 2 nights visit the nearby National Park Service sites. This was our second stay here. Not much changed from the first visit. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 40. Although the park was located near the Interstate, it was pretty quiet as it is on the edge of town. There was an escort to your site. The interior roads were and sites were paved or concrete. There were two sections in the park. The newer section is for larger RV's. The newer section was built on a slope so the majority of sites are not level but they were wide. A power line runs across the middle of new section. We stayed in the newer section. The pull through sites were long enough to accommodate our 41' MH and toad. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 APM), & sewer connections - and an outside table on an all weather hard surface pad. The utility connections were about mid-way along the site. There are no trees in the newer section so there was no encroachment on the sites & road. There was sufficient room to open slides. As there were no obstructions to the southern sky satellite reception was good. The older section had trees and grassy areas making it a park like setting so there could be some tree encroachment and satellite interference in that area. The park brochure showed 48 cable channels but didn't mention any broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception. There were some long term residents located in the older section of the park. This is where the back-in sites are located. There didn't seem to be the usual collection of material associated with these long-term residents as seen in other parks. The fenced pet area was located in the middle of the park. It was covered with what appeared to be shredded rubber. There were bag dispensers around the park.

We stayed 2 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites. The park is a several miles North of Santa Fe in the Pueblo of Pojoaque on a reservation. But the drive is fairly easy if you avoid going through Santa Fe (use the by-pass). The park is off an access road that is directly parallel to the main highway. But there wasn't much traffic noise. For being on a reservation associated with 2 casinos the park is very disappointing. It was very primitive offering no amenities. The layout of the park required a 180 degree turn from the office to get into the row where our site was located. Fortunately, the area in front of the office was wide enough to make the turn while connected to the toad. And the exit route required a sharp 90 degree turn to face the road. Very difficult for larger motorhomes. All of the sites are pull throughs that were long enough to remain connected to the toad if needed. There was an escort to the site. The interior roads and site parking pads are compacted gravel. The interior roads are narrow with tight turns. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a leveling problem. Distance establishes privacy between the sites but they were generally wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. Along the 200's row, the utility connections were spread out along the site. The sewer connect was on the uphill end & side of the site making it difficult to establish a downhill flow. Don't remember there being an outside table or fire pits at the sites. No trees so satellite reception was good. The park brochure didn't mention any broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was poor at best.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 3 nights to see some attractions in the area. The park is a short drive from I-40 (Exit 60: Arnot Rd) along a narrow 2 lane paved road that was showing some age near the gas station just off the interstate. The interior roads and sites are paved with concrete parking pads. The roads were wide and the turns were easily negotiated by larger RV's. The sites were a mixture of pull through's (in the center) and back ins (along the outer edges). The P/T sites were long enough to stay connected to toads. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The connections were generally near the middle of the parking pad. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance and gravel areas establish privacy between the sites. There was a nice outside table but no fire pit as open flame fires were prohibited. There were no obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was good. Park information sheet showed there were 38 cable channels and 5 broadcast channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was a designated fenced pet area as well as there being sufficient distance along the park's roads to exercise a dog. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste at the pet area and throughout the park as well as dumpsters scattered around the park. While being in a hazardous/severe weather area, they claimed to have storm shelters but didn't see an underground storm shelter or any structure identified as a severe weather shelter. We would probably stay here again if visiting the area. There is another RV park a short distance away that has an underground sever storm shelter.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 1 night to visit an attraction in the area as there isn't much to choose from in the area. The park is just South of Sayre off US-283. It is a short drive from I-40 (Exit 20) so a lot of travelers use it. There are several ways to get into the park but only one way to get into the sites. Some of the transitions from the main roads around the park to the park's road pose a challenge. The fee is cash only at the self pay station. Don't expect someone to come by to collect as the sign said. While the park was built on a gently sloping field, the site parking pads were generally not level so some leveling was required. The interior roads were a mixture of pavement & gravel and sites are gravel. The roads were wide enough as most were for one way traffic. The turns were not the most inviting but were negotiated by larger RV's. The RV sites are all pull throughs. The P/T sites appeared long enough to stay connected to toads. They do not have full hook ups - only water & electricity (50 AMP). The connections were generally at the middle of the site. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. There was an outside table but no fire pit as campfires are "strictly prohibited". Ended up taking a shower in the restroom building. Was not a pleasant experience. Not much privacy as there was not a door on the shower stall. There were a few trees creating some obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was based upon site selection. As the park didn't offer any other service connections, our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was no designated fenced pet area but there sufficient distance along the park's roads to exercise a dog. However, there were stickers everywhere, including in the gravel of the road.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 2 nights to visit an attraction in the area. The park is adjacent to I-70 so it is a short drive from the interstate interchange (Exit 127: US-283) along a paved 2 lane road that ends at the park. The road can become congested when there is a line of RV's checking in. While the park was built on a gently sloping field, the site parking pads were generally level. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were wide enough as most were for one way traffic. The turns were easily negotiated by larger RV's. The RV sites are all pull throughs.

There was an outside table but no fire pit as campfires are "strictly prohibited". There were no obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was good. Cable channel lineup showed 58 channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was one fenced pet area along with a designated unfenced area as well as sufficient distance along the park's roads to exercise a dog. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste throughout the park and a couple of dumpsters scattered around the park. The fenced pet area was one of the nicest we have seen in our 5 plus years of full timing travel across the U.S. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, didn't see an underground storm shelter or any structure identified as a severe weather shelter. We would stay here again if visiting the area.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 4 nights to see some attractions in the area. The park is a short drive from I-435 (Exit 54: Parvin Rd) along a 4 lane paved road that was in good condition. In order to access the park, you have to go through the amusement park's toll booth and pay the parking fee. The fee is refunded at check in if you have the receipt. Sounds pretty complicated. During our stay the amusement park was only open on the weekend so we didn't have to pay the parking fee as we arrived during the week. The park was built on a slope. There was an effort to tier the sites so generally the parking pads were level but some of the entrances and exits from the parking pad could be steep. The interior roads and sites are paved with concrete parking pads. The roads were wide and the turns were easily negotiated by larger RV's. The sites were a mixture of pull through's (in the center) and back ins (along the outer edges). The P/T sites were long enough to stay connected to toads but angle of the entrances could pose a challenge. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30 AMP), & sewer. The connections were generally at the rear of the parking pad. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. There was a nice outside table but no fire pit. There were no obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was good. Cable channel lineup showed 28 channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was no designated fenced pet area but there was a sufficient distance along the park's roads (but they were up and down a hill) and the side walk along the main road to exercise a dog. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste throughout the park.
