10 RV Parks near Acton, California
May 2016 - $45.00
The Acton area is beautiful, but for the price I was hoping for more from this park. Facilities are clean but dated, my site was right up against a big cottonwood tree and the roots made it not very level. Staff wasn't very good about enforcing the rules, saw dogs off leash and the like. For those that need to stay connected, Verizon signal was pretty much non-existent, but at least the WiFi was usable. - BeckyIO

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. - User2967

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

This park is a few miles outside the town of Acton. Acton is a tiny town. We didn't have very good cell reception. We purchased Wi-Fi that could only be used in the lodges. The Wi-Fi barely worked while in the lodges and didn't work at all in the RV. the massive pool wasn't open yet, didn't go to the year round adult pool/hot tub. Lots of activities - volleyball, basketball, mini golf, horse shoes, etc etc. you can borrow equipment for these games from the office. Park is very spread out and most sites were empty. We weren't too close to any of our neighbors. There's a train that rolls through, mostly during rush hour. The loop at the top ( I want to say M) seemed to have better cell reception, but it was full. - Shaughn

Large campground with 800 sites, mainly 30 amp. Sec. B is near the entrance and by the road and RR but has the most 50 amps sites marked by orange elect. boxes. Sec. K is also by the road and RR but ½ mi from the entrance so we didn't hear any whistles. MetroLink goes by several times both AM and PM M-F but passes in 5-8 secs. A freight train goes by around 2 PM with no shaking as we have experienced at other campgrounds. Very limited 50 amp tho. (K92,93,99) K is close to the Adult pool, A. clubhouse and laundry. Sec. N up the hill has the best cell reception but only 2 -50 amp sites (N162-3). Sec. Q is away from the road but has no 50 amps. Sec. C has no sewer but is quiet and little used. The main roads are paved but the section areas are gravel/sand as are the sites themselves so there is dust but the speed limit is 5 MPH, 10 MPH on the paved roads. Most of the sites appear to be level in all the sections and many are sectioned off with a white fence. The restrooms are cleaned daily and the staff is helpful. - clarksark

This campground was a ghost town when we visited it. It is just way too far out of the way that we wished we had stayed closer to the city. Do not come here thinking that it is a good place to stay while exploring the LA area. Stay here only if you plan on never leaving the campground during your stay. The kids pool was closed while we were here which was a bummer. No wifi whatsoever. - Howls_Castle

This is probably the nicest RV park in the area. The sites are OK, but they vary in quality. The biggest problem is that the park's website indicates that they offer more than they actually do. No cable TV. Very poor wifi. Minimal exercise room with old equipment. No picnic table. Etc. Lots of long term RVers, though the spaces are kept nice. So, it's actually a pretty basic park without a lot of extras. Great for a short stay. - Bruce of Port Ludlow

LOCATION: on a hillside above CA-14. Some freeway noise if you're outside, but not bothersome, and barely audible if you're in your rig. Nice views of surrounding mountains. Generally quiet park with mostly higher-end RVs. You're out of the big city, but it's still accessible - although it will take about 45-60 minutes to get into central LA or Pasadena, or more if traffic is bad. Not much in the way of shopping or restaurants in Acton, but there are many choices in Palmdale, about 8 miles away. BIG RIG ACCESS: very good through the park itself. Most sites are pull-thrus. Turns getting into and out of sites can be tight, especially with overhanging branches, but management will trim them if needed. SITES: average width; you're not right up against your neighbors, but you are close enough that their rigs mostly block your view. Long enough (just barely) to park our truck in front of rig. Very level, even though park is on a hillside. Some sites are all concrete, some have concrete pads with adjacent grass strip, and some are gravel, so ask when you make your reservation. Many sites have trees at one end or the other or both. CONNECTIVITY: strong wifi signal throughout the park, but their connection to internet seemed poor. Wifi frequently disconnected. We had to rely on our Verizon hotspot most of the time. Verizon and AT&T signals weak but usable. MANAGEMENT: Excellent. Some of the friendliest and most responsive folks you'll ever meet. Any concerns we had were addressed promptly. VALUE: at $775 per month (electricity included), it's a good value considering the area. We stayed one month + four days, three of them at Passport America rate ($23) and the last with a Good Sam discount ($40). OVERALL: This is an excellent park, and we would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. The main disadvantage is the distance from LA if you want to do in-city activities. - PlanoPilot

Very well run RV park that is always clean. It is situated on a steep hill but each space is leveled out very well. We had to disconnect our tow, to fit it in on the front. (42 ft Motorcoach) We had no work navigating in the park with our coach. One thing: when checking in, there's a slight hill you have to stop on and I worry about stopping on the slope, so we parked out on the main approach road and made the short walk up the hill to registration. You are charged $25 for a gate entry card, so you have to make sure you return it for a refund of your deposit. This park is close to the Metrolink Station at Vincent Grade, where you can take a train all the way to downtown LA, with connections everywhere. Soledad Canyon, further to the West, suffered a lot of fire damage in this year's fire. There are no picnic tables, fire rings and limited room to set up outside. - elduque

Note: For Elks member use only. This is an older Elks lodge, but overall their RV park is nothing fancy but serviceable. There are approximately 21 pull-through sites, most of which should be able to accommodate a total length of about 60 feet. I think 14 of the pull-through sites have concrete pads to park on, with the rest of the RV park being gravel. Most of the pull-throughs have bi-directional hookups (pull in either way). In addition to the pull-through sites, there are plenty of back-in and parallel parking sites. I can't imagine this park ever being completely full. There are no full-hookup sites but a sewer dump is located on site. During our stay the voltage was good and water pressure was 80 psi. Both Verizon and AT&T had weak but usable LTE signals. Upon arrival, register with the friendly and helpful campground host, who's site is marked. We'll definitely stay here again. - Gyropilot

Nice stay in March 2017. RV/bartender host was very helpful and accommodating, allowing us to pick our site prior to paying. We really enjoyed the Elks potluck and karaoke, dancing to some of the songs and visiting with the regulars. - Moonlitnite

This is the second time I have stayed here. I guess I forgot how bad it was. 30 amp only. Gravel. Ruts. Poorly maintained. Have to drive over the curb to get into the parking lot. And $20 per night now. I will stay at the fairgrounds in the future where I have stayed in the past. - bradydane2009

No frills is a good way to describe this place. The sites are reasonably sized and can easily accommodate the largest rigs. The location is OK for a stopover but it's not near anything interesting. The 30 amp at our pedestal (#39) did not work, but since we didn't need AC we just used the 20 amp circuit. The wifi and cable TV didn't work. The dump station was closed for some concrete repair. We would come here again for an overnight stopover. - User3589

Having read one of the other reviews, I thought this park can't possibly be that bad. Guess what: it is! The sites themselves have no shading or landscaping. Our electricity went off twice during our stay. The showers are abhorrent: literally an inch deep in crane flies and other bugs in the toilets and showers. We stayed only because we had forgotten about the July 4th holiday and every other place close by was full. When you go into the office to complain, they shrug their shoulders, or as one staffer said to me, "Lady, we make minimum wage. We've been through four owners in three years and there's not much we can do about anything." If you can't find another park, look for the nearest Wal-Mart. - Puglady

We stayed here last year, and it was really nice. It's a different story now. The pool & spa were closed M-Th (even though the temp was in the 90's), the game room was closed due to vandalism (with no date set for re-opening), the laundry room floor had a carpet of dead insects on it (disgusting), weeds and trash are all around, and large rain-made gouges in the dirt made for an uneven RV pad. Plus, the rates have gone up $20.00 a night from our last stay! The good things: the Pro Shop clerk was EXTREMELY helpful and nice, and the Wi-Fi was adequate. The only reason we'll stay here again is that it's close to our relatives and friends. - OTR again

Since the last review this place is on the upswing. There is a lot of work being done here. I was told someone else took over the resort. We saw at least 30 fairly new golf carts. There is a lot of work ongoing. They are planting trees, putting in large drainage swells and grading etc. This park will be a 9 or 10 when complete. There is a new laundry and a club house. The small pond is filled, so you can use the paddle boats. We were there for 5 days and 2 were windy. But this is canyons and desert and is very common all over southern CA. There is Wi-Fi in the clubhouse. Our Verizon cell phone was very very week and our air card just worked. The hot tub and lap pool were heated. - BLT101

Good for what it is - an asphalt parking lot with hookups. Sites are level and spacious enough, hookups are good. Excellent value (only $20 for 30 amp). They don't take reservations, and we were fortunate to snag one of the last sites around 3:30 p.m. (don't know if that's normal). Quiet at night, but it's right next to Edwards Air Force Base and the noise from the planes was deafening when we arrived. A sonic boom shook the RV so hard the next morning we thought something had hit the roof. - Keeping up with the Joneses

I stay here on a sporadic schedule whenever I visit family. It's always had spaces available. However, I believe the park closes during their state fair in August. The spaces are easy access and wide. I parked my truck and trailer plus had adequate room to park a borrowed vehicle next to my trailer during my stay. The park and restrooms/showers are quite clean and spacious. However the shower curtains were tattered and kinda moldy. The park is a mix of travelers and longer term residents. All were quiet and friendly. While I was there the fairgrounds had a large swap meet one weekend and a rodeo another weekend. Neither event created excess noise or traffic.
Wi fi is available but was marginal at best. There is no cable which is something that is sorely needed, as over the air TV reception was terrible.
This park is a good place to use as a base if you have other things to do. I noticed the park host are not always around during the day so you have to self register. The problem with that I witnessed is if you happen to leave without leaving something to "mark" your site and someone else come in and sets up in your spot, you're gonna have headache to straighten things out.
One other thing- don't leave your awnings open unattended as the winds can pick up suddenly and usually every afternoon. - AV-Ed

This is a concrete lot on the north side of the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds with full hookups and 50 amp power for $25/night. We stayed here one night as a stopover on a trip. There are no services here other than hookups. The rv slots are painted lines on the ground.
If you are attending an event at the Fairgrounds, it is an ideal location. If there is no fairgrounds event, as for our night, this camp is quiet and isolated.
There were many longer term residents during our stay, working on the new solar panel farms outside of town according to our neighbor.
The camping slots are wide and easy to access. The power voltage was consistent as the water pressure. Be sure to check in with the RV park manager since they do take reservations. That wasn't clear to us when we used the self service check-in. We later saw it in their printed rules.
We didn't use the bathrooms or showers as we stayed in our unit. There was a consistent 20 knot west wind all night long so nobody was using awnings.
Basic services for a reasonable price. - Gaucho Mac

Very friendly and helpful staff. Well stocked camp store. Donuts and coffee in the morning. Former KOA but that's not a negative. Buildings, grounds and sites are very well-maintained. Many long term residents but sites are their sites are neat and organized. Spaces fairly narrow but adequate. Picnic table, fire fing and artificial lawn at each site. Roads and sites paved. Absolutely need reservations - probably less than 8 sites available at the beginning of the day and often none by 6 pm. - R&P

We enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi during our stay. The bathrooms and showers were great, as they were recently upgraded, clean and large. However, they close the bathrooms at night and open them back up in the morning. (Not good for late night bathroom runs while our bathroom is being refurbished).
Most of the people were fulltimers living there, with what appeared to be only a handful of sites available for camping. Many of the sites looked 'ghetto', dirty, junky, and messy with broken umbrellas, old furniture and lots of junk laying around. I was a bit uncomfortable. There wasn't much to do besides swim. We tried going for a walk, but there wasn't anything to see or do (besides walking across the street to the ARCO gas station). The pictures on the website made it look much nicer than it really was. Castaic Lake was not in walking distance, however the freeway was.
The on-site store was good sized and well stocked with a variety of supplies and necessities. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Someone patrolled the grounds in a golf cart regularly.
There was no built in campfire ring or place to cook outdoors, but they did provide a portable fire ring and brought it to our site. The camp sites were very close together so there wasn't much room between us and the guy next door to enjoy our campfire and meals outside. - BarbaraD

Good for overnight close to highway. Nice people in office. Looks like a lot of FT residences. Not for us. Looked somewhat rundown.
Lot spacing is nearby to very close. Site surface was gravel with sunny, open exposure and featured a picnic table. - Susie GR

This will be our last stop at this park. They kick in their 'summer' rates in May, and have increased the price to what we consider unacceptable for this type of park. It is difficult to get into, there are HUGE number of speed bumps and the way they are place means that not only does your rig go up and down, but because they don't go clear across the road, only one set of wheels go up, so you get side-to-side shake that is VERY significant. They have added more speed bumps since we were here last year. We were placed way in the back (K-circle) which was to far away from laundry room to walk and carry laundry (didn't want to unhook the car) and also far away from the pool area. When we walked around we noticed that several of the closer pull throughs were open and were open when we left in the morning. - PugetSound

We were at this park only overnight. Overnighters have long pull-throughs near the pools and rest rooms. The site was gravel with grass and a concrete patio and picnic table. It was a nice, reasonably private site. This is a large park with a lot of longer term visitors. The sites were all quite different. Most were pull-thought and had some privacy. Lots of trees and shrubs. In the center was complex with two large pools (one adults only) plus a hot tub and wading pool. Complex also had a good laundry facility and nice restrooms. Also a convenience store. Overall a nice park we would stay at again - thyde

Friendly staff. Two swimming pools plus a Jacuzzi and a children's pool. Close to I-5. About 3 miles to Walmart and many other stores. Sites in the first two rows are pull-through. Not much maneuvering space. It took me three swings to get into the pull-through. Sites in the rear appear to be seasonal or permanent. - Paripatetic One

Balboa RV Park is a medium-sized RV park with tight spacing. However, the office people helped you back-in and they are the best I've ever seen at directing. Once in place, the site felt larger than it was, as there was a lot of landscaping. The surface was asphalt with AstroTurf-like grass surrounding it. We had a picnic table and the full hookups worked fine. We had a dedicated parking spot for our tow car, right across from our site. Also right across from us was the large, clean laundry room and fairly nice restrooms/showers. The entire park was quite clean and (for a tightly spaced park) uncluttered, and not as noisy as I had expected; it was actually fairly quiet, everything considered. Everyone we met was very nice. WiFi was quite good, and I could get a strong Verizon signal. If we need to be in this area again, we would definitely stay there. - RobtL

At first glance you're thinking what did I get into. But the owner was very helpful, they took you to your site and helped you back in, they had someone hook you up so I didn't have to do anything. The sites were tight but I have a 40 ft motorhone with 4 slides. I had a picnic table and a nice concrete patio. We had fake grass on both sides and rose bushes. (Nice) the dog park was all the way at the end of the park fenced and large but dirt, and the dog waste in a garbage cans hadn't been picked up probably two weeks, the smell was bad. But that was my only complaint. The place was quiet, no road noise but we did have an airport right next-door so we did hear the planes but not as much as I thought. The location is ideal for sightseeing of Universal Studios or any of the studios and Beverly Hills. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. - Crbus

We stayed here several times when in LA...not many places in LA. This is tight to get into the slots, but the owner always helps and then we are fine. We have a place to park our toad and the picnic table and area next to the RV is nice for outside dinner. Yes they have air traffic but you are in LA so learn to ignore. Kids play and some folks have pets but that is how most humans live now...we love it. Nice trees and the WiFi seems pretty good. We stay 2 to 4 days while we visit our kids. There is a nice park down the road for visiting and picnics. Easy access to the 101 and good stores right around the corner for shopping. - Wpatters1229
