This county campground is tucked away at the end of a canyon, a few miles north of Simi Valley. The sites all have full hook ups. The campground adjoins a day-use park. A camp host is resident. The showers take quarters. A good shower costs $1. This park is not pet friendly. Dogs are not allowed on the grass in the day-use section even if there is no one there. The ground cover is full of stickers that get in the dog's feet. We have stayed here three times. The first camp host was very taken with herself and authority, making it a very unpleasant experience. A much more reasonable host unfortunately just left, so we'll reserve judgement when we return in November. Cell and hotspot coverage is very iffy. Verizon is better than AT&T, but neither is good. I think this park is overpriced for what it delivers, but is the only full hookup park in the area. and the only one that is big-rig friendly. We come back twice a year to visit friends.

A real find for this area. a few sites are suitable for 40+ foot rigs, but most are a better fit for smaller RVs. The park covers over a hundred acres with miles of trails and a lake. All sites have water and 30 amp power. All have tables and fire rings. The camp hosts sell firewood at competitive prices. The showers are good, with plenty of hot water.

Nice park, well laid out for easy access. We could have dry camped for free, but wanted hookups so were assigned a vacant leased spot. The park is attractive, nicely landscaped and a good place to walk the dogs. Many of the residents are seasonal and had already left for cooler climes for the summer. We stayed one night on way to Utah. We will gladly stay again.

Outstanding campground. Great camp hosts; the whole place is immaculate. Huge sites, many pull-through. All shaded. The exterior sites all face hundreds of acres of pine forest and meadow. The back-in site depths listed on the recreation.com reservation system are misleading, because the concrete picnic tables are right at the end of the site driveway, making it impossible to run the rig over the end of the pad. Large rigs must use a pull-through site to be able to keep the car on the site. Water fill and dump station are easily accessible. No sites have hookups.

One of the nicest places we have stayed. Excellent layout, easy in and out. Good cable TV, good WiFi, good laundry and great showers. We plan to return in July. About the only drawback is lack of a dog park. Everyone seems to be pet-friendly, but dogs will need to be walked in the adjoining neighborhood if they need much exercise.

Date of Stay:

This park is a real dichotomy: terrific setting, great camp hosts, but very sketchy sites and roads, especially for large RVs. We had three days of snow and rain, which made a lot of mud. This place needs a few hundred tons of gravel to mitigate the mud issues. Warning: Generators are NOT allowed, so be prepared for that of you decide to dry camp. This place is too expensive for what it is.

Very, very nice park. We arrived intending to stay one week and stayed two. Lots of activities that all guests are welcome, even encouraged to attend. Happy hour every afternoon, numerous craft groups, card games, breakfasts, dinners and many other activities really kept us busy. This is the friendliest place we have been to. It is also very dog friendly. The park has a number of transient spaces, but most of the sites are leased by Co-op members. We were fortunate enough to be assigned one where the lessees were traveling. The park is surrounded by hundreds of acres of desert with miles of trails to explore. The dogs had a great time here. Rate quoted is based on the weekly rate without electricity. Our power bill for two weeks was $67.

Great park/resort. Escort to the site and knowledgeable assistance getting parked and hooked up. I wish we had had time to try the golf course, it looked to be in great shape. We really enjoyed the pool and spa, but the best feature of the whole place was the huge grassy dog park where there were always lots of dogs to socialize with. Very good laundry, too.

We stayed a month in a premium site that was very large, roughly 70x30'. This is a very nice park, but with a few quirks: no restrooms or showers, and a $2 per night premium for coaches over 37'. The park is several miles west of Tucson, making it both quiet and handy to all of the city services. Maybe the best thing about the location is that it adjoins hundreds of acres of desert with miles of trails. The dogs especially loved it.

Great park in a lovely setting. Many hiking trails in a variety of terrain. They are a little behind on tree trimming, though, so watch overhead clearance in some sites. Good big rig access with many pull through sites. Fire pits and picnic tables at all sites. Firewood for sale at camp host site.

This is an Escapees Rainbow Park. Most of the park are privately owned sites. The short term sites are located in two large graveled areas that could use more rock to keep it from getting muddy when it rains. Very dog friendly, nice off leash area. People running the place are all volunteers and they couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. There is effectively no WIFI. They will reluctantly sell Tengo WIFI service but it never worked for us or anyone else we talked to.

One of the cleanest parks we've ever seen. Wide sites with good access for big rigs. I never saw the office open so can't comment on that service, but everyone else we met was friendly. Self checkin could have been better explained but we got it done. Lots going on, many activities. Great hiking and dog walking in the desert right across the street. We stayed a week. We will certainly return.

Nice park. Very clean. Good WiFi. Sites are a little tight but were doable for a large coach with care. No pool. Many full time residents but not a problem. Very popular during salmon season so plan ahead. Excellent cell service because there is a huge tower at the back of the park. We would readily stay again. Bandon is a neat town, lots to do and see.

Rate reflects weekly cost with GS discount. This is a great park, very well maintained and managed. It is spotless inside and out. The pool is large enough to really swim in. The sites are a little narrow, and are all fresh gravel. Utilities appear almost new. Strong WiFi. We plan to return. Paso is a great town to walk around in or go wine tasting.

Date of Stay:

Great WiFi, good laundry. It is across the street from a great park that the dogs and we used twice a day. It is also across the street from a fire station and next to a very busy road that has a sound barrier wall that reflects all traffic noise. Do not stay in spaces 1-5 for that reason. The local shopping or services.
