3 Parks near Acton, California
Sep 2014 - $49.00
Strictly a place to stay, overnight. Located off the Antelope Valley Freeway (14) on Soledad Canyon Road (exit 11) the park is about 6 miles off the freeway, so it in an out of the way location. Gravel, and a few shade trees, level sites. Bathrooms and showers were spotless when we were here. No TV reception at all! Must have a satellite dish. The WiFi (Tengo Internet) is open and doesn't require a password, but is a slow as can be, and very spotty. Cell service for AT&T was non existent as well as Verizon (no signal) Sprint phone was able to dial out ok. Heavy canyon winds make for a dusty experience, plus the LA Metrolink trains that come through every 25 minutes can make for an interesting stay. There are some permanent residents here as well, that are co-mingled with the regular clientele. You can hear Lions roar at night that come from Tippi Hedren's house (Shambala), so don't be alarmed. They're caged and it's safe. Like I said at the beginning of this review, strictly a place to overnight, and it would be an out of the way over night. - DayTripper2015

Middle of the road. No TV reception and Cell signal really weak, (Sprint). Has possibilities, but staff not real friendly. Bathrooms were damaged with vandals (kids). They tried to fix them, but not whole lot of improvement. No toliet paper, holes in walls. One bathroom was fairly new, but others needed improvement. They are doing something with the kiddie pool, but I think time would best be served elsewhere. We are Thousand Trails Members and will not go back even though it is the closest one to LA, unless we can not get in another one. People next to us in a Class A was really upset and wrote them really a nasty letter. Did a lot of walking and Acton was ok: really small town. We went to Palmdale to shop. Showers were broken: had to turn them on and off. - Tampajohn

This looked to be a great place to stay with the access to Pacific Crest Trail and Los Angeles. But to our surprise it was noisy with trains all night and the neighbor's parties (employees). I tried to get my children into the arcade, but it was full of adults yelling and screaming. They did have some interesting attractions; down the road is a big cat compound called 'Shambala' which was very much fun. Thank goodness for Six Flags, 45 minutes away. I just wouldn't recommend this place due to the extended stay people. I could smell marijuana all night the first night and beer the second. Not a very good place for families. - taylorandassociate

I have stayed at Soledad Canyon before and was really hard on the property in my critique. I won't repeat that review because that was then and now is now... and what a difference now makes!!! The sites now showed that they have been tended to, not cluttered with weeds and debris like before. Everything looked clean. The shrubs were manicured. The sites looked like they had been leveled and prepped. I don't know if it's new management or new attitude but it's definitely an improvement. The roads and trees were clean and easy to drive on. After our last stay, we swore we would never return... I'm so glad we did!!! There is still work to be done, but they are so headed in the right direction. It's now on my "definitely will be back" list!! The staff... amazing!!! One gentlemen with a beard and a young lady riding in the cart with him (wish I had gotten their names) were exceptionally great. They saw that the picnic table at my sight was riddled with splinters and falling apart and within 30mins they brought me a brand new table (literally brand new)!!! They would roll by and converse about just any old thing... that added a very special touch that I enjoy when glamping!!! I was really hard on this property in the past, but now it gets two thumbs up!!! There was a considerable amount of trash behind my site and on the hillside, but everything else had been so greatly improved, I looked over that, besides I'm sure there working on that as well. The wifi is only in the lodges and it's not very good, but I hear that's being redone through out the park. Forget a phone signal unless you drive up on the hill (section N). There phone and verizon mifi (if you have one) works fine. The pool is nice. The water effects by the family lodge with the big grassy fields... really nice...(you couldn't fine a blade of grass there before)!!! - Glamper Dude

I stayed in this park a couple of years ago and it was OK, but new manager is making tremendous progress turning it into a great park. She has removed the long term residents and started fixing amenities that were neglected. The pool area is fantastic. Its a big park with a great location. Section N has good Verizon signal. - perry four

We stayed back in the fall of 2014 in the upper campground and were able to get some ATT service. Those are the nicer sites and also quieter.
This trip we stayed for 3 nights in the lower campground in the section near the storage yard. With the exception of the Metro-Link trains that came by hourly it was OK. We had a problem with ants because while the sites are supposed to be gravel they are over grown with weeds. This is also because of the drought so the little critters are searching for anything.
We stayed Tues thru Friday and on Thurs night the weekend campers came in and the noise began. After 11 it calmed down but I'm glad we didn't stay for the weekend.
We are TT members so it was included in our membership. Hopefully the next time we are down in the area things will improve there. - Toni11

Beautiful park with great views of the surrounding mountains. Quiet, clean, sites were close, but each had a nice grassy area for the dogs. About a 15 minute drive to nearest city/shopping area. Weekly rate. - fulltimerjan

This is a very nice RV park. It consists of mostly long-term campers but has a long row of sites available for shorter stays. The sites are long enough for big rigs but very narrow. There aren't many trees so the narrowness of the sites doesn't pose a problem for slide-outs, but there is only a very small patch of grass at each site to sit out on, and there are no picnic tables. The facilities are all super clean. There is a pool & spa. Didn't use them but they looked very nice. The shower rooms were among the largest I've come across. Very comfortable. And they have a nice large laundry room which we made good use of. They have cable but didn't use it, however the Wi-Fi was free and excellent! Was able to use it fully both at our site and in the laundry room. I really appreciated being able to bring my laptop and multi-task while doing the laundry!
The office was closed when we arrived at 3 p.m. and there was no self-check in, only a confusing sign on the door. We almost left, but since we could see that there were lots of spaces available we called the number on the door. The owner (manager?) apparently lives just upstairs and came down right away and checked us in. That and the lack of picnic tables are the only reasons that I gave this park a 9 instead of a 10. Very nice place and we would definitely stay again if we are passing through this area. - Pdxjoanne

Seemed like a good park although all he spaces are really close together. More like a place where people live full time, but it doesn't look like it. Worst dog run I have ever seen, they do have an area called "the back yard" where pets are allowed that is really nice. Could be a windy area. Didn't see anyone sitting outside of their rigs. - Spantz
