3 Parks near Acton, California
Feb 2016 - $39.00
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

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 park was awesome. Very clean. Staff were helpful and well informed about the area. The grounds were beautiful. The family lodge was great. Kids activities were fun and even though the family pool was closed they allowed kids in the adult pool a majority of the day. Only thing I can think of that was not up to par was the electrical issues that they are clearly working on. They had all sites that were not working well marked. - Appreciatethedaysyouhave

We've stayed here before and will stay again. The sites are level and the hook-ups work well. The bathrooms are clean and so are the lodges - both family and adult. There have been quite a few improvements since we were here last: new pool, new 'grass' on the miniature golf course, nice pool tables, and probably others that we did not notice. They serve breakfast on Wednesdays and have other activities throughout the week. Our Verizon wi-fi worked well and so did cell service. You can park in the shady sections on in open sections.
We especially enjoyed the view of the mountains out our windows. - swike

Very large Thousand Trails park in canyon north of Los Angeles. Near to Palmdale and Lancaster, CA.
Go to section N for good internet and cell service. Look for newer electric boxes - they will have one 50A and one 30A service. The electric and water/sewer are usually between two pullthru spaces - so if no one else is in the space, then you can have access to 50A. On the shared services side, you will be very close to the next RV; on the other side, there is a little space between RVs. - pattic777

This is an okay park for an overnighter. Sites are paved and terraced, reasonably level, but no room between for even a chair. Staff is friendly. Our site was a tight fit with our toad, but we managed, and there is overflow parking. Many full-timers, but not an issue. Restrooms were good, clean with hot water and good pressure. There is a pool and hot tub, but pool isn't heated. Wifi was okay. Good access from CA 14. - mlbw

Stayed here few times as this is the only a decent place around and near north of LA. Had a reservation in advance and check in was swift and efficient by friendly office staffs. It's gated and feels safe. The park ground is completely paved and site is terraced as it sits on a hill, but not difficult to drive a big rig. A bit narrow site, consists of half cement for rig and half grasses, with no picnic table. The space between sites is close but have seen worse. Due to the drought problem, what used to be green grasses are almost gone, and now it's mostly dirt. They could cover all with cement except a sloped portion for a better, useful space and to prevent dirt tracking to the rig. One big concern is a lack of lights at night, even entrance to bathroom/shower facility is so dark that I used my flashlight. Most parks I have been, have a pass code for bathroom/shower. However, I felt very uneasy with no pass code to bathroom/shower, but the laundry room requires a pass code. Swimming pool and laundry seem nice and bathroom/shower is always clean. Park Wi-Fi is almost useless s0 we used our Verizon jet-pack entire time. My iPhone connection was satisfactory but the cable listing is very limited with poor reception. The park itself gives you a rural atmosphere, surrounded with horse ranches and beautiful mountains. We stayed here in a 43' rig and the pad length is long enough to park a tow vehicle. Will definitely back! - lifeisgoodak

This is about the cheapest park you can find around LA, and it is not that far from everything in LA. The park is good sized, big RV will have no issues with getting around. There is plenty of extra parking, the place is very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The spaces are a tad close together but not that bad really. There are concrete and gravel sites and trees that are not to big that blocking satellite signal is an issue. The local cities have everything you need and if you like deserts, it can be a lot of fun here as the open desert is not far away. Only three hours to Death Valley as well. The only downside to this park is that the pool is not heated, that might just be this time of year, but a heated pool 365 days would be a plus, the other negative is the poor Wifi. Most times you can get email and such, but with the slow system, when people start coming home, it crawls to a stop and then even watching a YouTube video is near impossible. We would stay here again, we stayed here in a 45' 5th wheel and had enough room. - Randy Campbell
