This is an Adult Only park. Pet friendly (w/restrictions) w/ a huge dog run. There are multiple tennis, pickle ball, horse shoe, and other courts that are all available 24 hrs. day.
This park is in 2 sections old & new. The Old section is mainly small cabins (a lot are for sale) and a few RV's. New is all new RV camping with full hook-ups at every space.
Spaces are very large with tons of room for slide outs (on both sides) and room for your dink too. Power is 20/30/50amp services, fresh water, sewer and cable hookup (not many channels). Your digital antennae will pick a dozen or more channels. Satellite works well here too (no trees to block a signal).
There is a huge clubhouse with full facilities, a pool-side bar that is open daily with entertainment in the afternoons (happy hour) drinks are $2. The pool is huge and the Jacuzzi next to the pool. Lots of chairs lounge cabanas tables and chairs without being cramped.
This is a big "snowbird" hang out and lots of rallies are held here too. But there are always extra spaces.
New internal roads, new spaces. Very friendly staff and helpful. We were at this park for 2 weeks. No problems at all. We camped at Fortuna De Oro RV Park (55+) in a Motorhome.
Lots of good restaurants near by, Fry's Supermarket close.
RV Parts/Service store near by. This camp is a little outside of Yuma, but there is still everything you need within a few blocks. We found a hardware store, RV parts store & service. We found a great Chinese restaurant with 3 blocks, and several other great restaurants within 4-5 blocks. Even a large Fry's supermarket within 3 blocks of the park.

Used this as a dry night rest stop. Internal roads were very poor and not conducive to larger rigs (lots of tight turns and hills). Space was literally just a space with low hanging branches, tight (narrow) space. Pull through requested as it was a simple rest stop. Limited space so had to ask neighbor to move his car so I could make the turn to get out of the space. Space was simple gravel that was worn and mostly dirt. About 3 miles off the frwy but the roads are narrow residential and then rural (narrow and windy) access to the actual facility is not big-rig friendly.
I have a 36ft RV and found it was about as big as you would want for this park. I would not stay here again for the price and lack of facilities and bad roads. We camped at Country Hills RV Park in a Motorhome.
No shops near by, nothing near by to do. A lot of permanent residents in trailers and RVs

Easy to get to. Office staff friendly. Well laid out. Park is older with smaller spaces especially if you have a slide-out.
Park store had no product except beer & ice cream - disappointing as I needed butter!
Train run next to park at all hours of day & night.
Every space had leaking water faucet, reported but nothing done.
Park has very bad electrical system (low of 90 VAC to a high of 134 VAC). Caused wiring damage to my rig. Others had system protection and it shut them down. We reported this to the park and they did nothing. I reported this to KOA corporate and they referred me back to the park saying it was franchised, talk to the park! No help there, as far as I know the park has done nothing to repair their bad electrical system.
I was part of a 20 coach group (Good Sam) all motorhomes. Over priced for its age and condition and facilities. Large shady trees blocked satellite TV for some - request space without shade tree if you use satellite TV. We camped at Acton / Los Angeles North KOA in a Motorhome.
Long way from town so bring everything

We camped as a group and were well attended. They gave us a group rate. Management is very friendly and willing to help. The park is older so the spaces are narrow. Enough room for slide out but not slide out + awning. Power is 30amp only, with clean water, sewer, and cable hookup (didn't use) at each space. The park is well used by families and groups. There is a huge BBQ pit (rents for $50) with concrete tables and benches around. There is also a small children's playground with lots of swings, and climbing apparatus. There is also a well maintained baseball field that if fully stocked with good pro gear, the field was always under use while we were there. The lake has small rowing boats and a large solid ground pier to fish from, the lake is well stocked with fish. The park closes to the public at 8pm. Each camper is given a key so they can get in and out after hours ($5 deposit). We camped with 5 rigs and felt we got a good deal in a nice quiet place. We camped at Pinto Lake Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first and last visit to this campground. We requested a range of 10 sites and got none of them. We were actually assigned a site on the middle of the park right next to the entrance and had to listen to noisy pick-up trucks come and go day and night. The site size was minimal with barely enough space to hook-up and put up our awning and single slide out, it was also short as we were on the grass just to get the front off the road. Getting around the park with your coach is not the easiest as a lot of the campers have trucks and a 2nd car which stuck out onto the interior roads. The park does little to manage this situation. They park has a rule about large and aggressive which we found the do not follow as we were attacked by a pit-bull, which the parks seemed to do nothing about when advised. When they mention family friendly on their web site they don't mention how friendly; that place is loaded with kids tearing around on bikes and skate boards. Which is OK if you are a family and good for the kids, but a little disturbing to the older set. The bathrooms were small but clean. The front gate crew were friendly and ready to answer any question. The on-site restaurant was sub-par at best. Their clam chowder seemed freshly made but was tasteless, fish & chips were straight out of the freezer bag. They list there burgers as 1/3lb but seemed a bit small to me. The store is well stocked with a little bit of everything and friendly staff. The miniature golf is hidden in the back and in poor condition. The Clubhouse is a large room with a small lending library, Ping-Pong tables, and little else. The pool was large enough and looked to be well cared for. It was well-used by the kids. As was the nice laundry facility. My conclusion: for couples or older set it’s a bit too noisy and busy, for families or groups it would be a great place, the restaurant should take a big miss, cramped spaces (web photos are deceptive) We camped at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is roughing it in the millennium!!! The entire park has less than 100 sites. No Full hook-ups. Power only; water is never far away though with a long hose. There is a dump station that has easy access from either side. We have a 36ft coach, and it was a tight turn to get into top row space (the best place) but worth the effort. You head in and the view out of your front window (day or night) is the very best with great sunsets. We had 4 days/nights of great weather, rained one night but was sunny and warm every day. Surfers seem to love it as do the beach fishing crowd. They now accept reservations via their web site. The park is 20 miles from Lompoc, so make sure you either bring it all with you or a small car to drive to Lompoc to buy it. The rest rooms are older but clean and functional; the showers need quarters (usually 2 does it). There are a few new cabins with great views. All the tent camp sites are on the lowest level along with all the trailer sites. There are a few sites that are actually on the beach. On the top row is where most of the coaches go and is the pick of the place. There is a very small café inside the small store that makes good burgers, etc. Watch out; the portions are huge. We ordered fries and couldn't come close to eating half between us! CONCLUSION: Great fun for all. Everyone was very friendly, park workers and other guests. Jalama Burger didn't live up to bragging but still good. Basics only. Good surfing & beach fishing. We camped at Jalama Beach Park in a Motorhome.
