Not really a full review after only 24 hours here, in the winter, but the campground is quiet and looks clean and well-maintained and I'd definitely return.
There are some things I wanted to mention because I did not see them elsewhere:
(1) Verizon service is good throughout the whole park.
(2) This park is not really in Banning itself, but 12 miles up the winding mountain road toward Idyllwild. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is not slightly scary to get to.
(3) Dig out your jack pads before you come, because the sites are asphalt (wish I'd planned ahead!)
(4) The sites are laid out in an unusual pattern, with groups of both back-in and pull-thru sites in short "nodes", with lots of grassy spaces between nodes. It strikes me that this is one of the best arrangements I've ever seen for family groups with multiple RVs, or small groups traveling together.
(5) The sewer connections are exactly 3" in diameter and threaded on the outside. I had nothing - including my 4-in-1 slip adapter - which would fit these. I guess you need a rubber seal connector and that's the only thing that works? Just come prepared.
As with Thousand Trails parks, you pick your spot. But when I called the office to give them my site number, they refused to take it over the phone. She said I had to give them that information in person?!
I have no toad and it's a long walk back, so I guess they'll have to live without it. That's been my only negative experience here. - Karen On The Road

Very clean park with over 800 camping spots, two pools one for children and one for adults, bar, resturant and snack bars at each pool. I dont recommend camping here in August due to the heat. We will be back. - snarlin

This is a membership park. It's in a great location, a huge campground, plenty of area for walking, lots of trees and grass, plenty of birds if you like to put out feeders, nice sized spaces with good wifi (for a fee). One of our favorite spots when in California. It's steep and winding getting to and from the park, but worth the trouble to get there. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

The customer service at this park during our 3 month stay (May 10 - August 2) was not a good experience. Park needs maintenance. Most trailers are old, abandoned, etc. Management is rude, bullying, disrespectful, uncaring and uncommitted to the park and its residents; they only favor & cater to snowbirds from Canada. The park is infested with ferol cats, homeless people in & around park, black widow & brown recluse spiders (we killed 7 on and around our trailer), black & red ants, as well as the trees are infested with bugs that drop their excrement all over your trailer (sticky substance). Facilities need major work or repair. A great deal of theft happens in the park (we had a bike & propane tank stolen), as well as resident mail (opened & unopened) as discovered by private security patrolling nearby shopping area (personally saw stolen bike parts & mail myself). Management did not show concern, only angry I brought it to their attention. Very uncaring! Save your money even though they are inexpensive, not worth the stay or your time & trouble. Very bad customer service. - Linda Flores Nolasco

I've been RVing for almost 25 years. I've owned and rented multiple RV's and I've stayed everywhere from KOA'S to primitive State parks. I've never experienced the lack of customer service anywhere, as I did at Casa del Sol. Management gave me a great 4-month rate for the price of 3 months. After 10 weeks, we had to leave. The problems started with the manager, he makes no effort to ensure your comfort as a guest or tenant. Rude, self centered, a bully, denies responsibility, kicks you out of his office when you have concerns, and then offers you a refund to leave. When you're ready to leave, he denies the refund. Pool heated when it's 110, weeds everywhere, park lighting inoperable, locks on thermostats busted off, indoor shuffle board locked up during so called "off season", excercise machines in work out room broken down and poorly maintained, park is infested with spiders and ferral cats, homeless people walk freely in and out of park, I had my bike and a propane tank stolen. Park has surveillance cameras but management makes no offer to view footage when thefts are reported. Park security is a young kid who randomly rides around in a golf cart. The park is about 70% vacant. Many spaces are filled with old, run down, park models with flat tires and boarded up windows. There's no restrictions on appearance. Many occupied spaces are public eyesores. This park is 5 stars out of 100. It's not an RV resort, it's a run down trailer park. - Mnolasco

It was hard to communicate with the office. It was closed when it was suppose to be open. When there, the help was good. I requested a few thing to be taken care of and half was done. The dog area was clean. The gate fell down a couple of time and was poorly repaired. I am presently having a problem with management. I had to leave on an emergency and I requested a refund. That was denied. Be careful not to sign up more then needed. the monthly is $579. - Jimmyk

This is perhaps the worst RV park we've stayed at in over two years. Their website gives the false impression of being on Lake Henshaw. Actually, the lake is across the highway and far down the hill. They absolutely will not take reservations and as they told me "You have to defend your space if you leave for the day." When we arrived, I should have realized why they have a large "NO REFUNDS" sign in the office. The clerk showed me a map of 16 hookup spaces that aren't occupied by full timers. We could choose whatever space we wanted that was available. Six of those spaces were on an approx. 10 degree slope and were only above 15 feet long before dropping off to a 30 degree slope. You wouldn't even put a tent on these spaces. Of the other 12 spaces, they were level but short. Our 31 foot RV stuck out about six feet into what would be the driveway (if there was such a thing designated). There was nothing but hard packed dirt with nothing to separate the spaces. If the placed had been full, the spaces would be too narrow to put a table between them. The electrical connection was at the bottom underneath the box? I only discovered it when another camper nearby told me where to look. We had arrived late, so decided to see if it looked any better in the morning. Unfortunately, morning arrived at 6:45 AM when we were awakened with loud Mexican music coming from a full timer across the street. This was the last straw. Even though we paid for two nights, we packed up and left that morning. Remember that they don't give refunds- and now you know why. The bathrooms were dirty with spider webs and discarded cigarettes on the floor. The pool was hopefully not open because the water was dark and dirty. There seemed to be some tent camping sites which seemed better and wee located away from the RV/Mobile Home sites. The entire place is on a steep hill. If you have an RV, stay away from this place!!! - woody5

Not a bad place but it's dusty and dry. The campground was crowded and noisy with weekender inner-tubers for their 'Lazy River' tube experience. The zip line course was awesome. - Anctmariner17

Level dirt sites with lots of oak trees. Sites are spacious. Trees not trimmed well. Big rigs beware. Many hairpin turns to get into camp. Limited sites for large rigs. Low hanging branches. But if you can get in without damaging your rig, the camp (in off season) is quiet. Very rural. Take whatever you need as stores are far away. GPS is so-so to get you there. We used 2 different ones and both would have taken us wacky routes. (From the 15, take the 76 east and you'll be OK.) Note that campground is on the south side of street, not north as more than one GPS shows. No AT&T service, but Verizon is OK. No Wi-Fi. No amenities. Only one restroom for entire camp and it was less-than-stellar. But there are porta-potties in various locations. Probably would not go again. - DrM Traveler

The GOOD: Tubing down the river was the best part. The people working there were friendly. The BAD: Otherwise the place was full of visitors that can be described as "THUGS FOR LIFE." Campsites were overcrowded. People were chopping wood at 11:30 pm outside our window. Blaring Mexican music was a common occurrence. The bathrooms were filthy. Human excrement in the urinals, which were NOT cleaned. The showers were ONLY cold water with NO shower heads, just a stream shooting out of a straight pipe. There were not nearly enough bathrooms for the number of people in the park. Electrical hookups were shady at best. Our breakers kept popping and it was BARELY enough to keep the RV cool. SUMMATION: We had a good time regardless of the conditions. But I doubt we will be back, as there are plenty of other places in southern California that offer better camping conditions. - lagreca

Will stay again. Suggest interior sites for the most quiet. The long term guests all seemed friendly. The area seems to be trying to recover from nd times. - Dp26

This was a very nice RV Resort. I was impressed with how clean and well-kept it was. Landscaping was lovely. We had a pull thru site that must have been about 90' long. It was nice gravel and had a patio made with pavers. The pool area is very nice (3 pools and 3 hot tubs but all in the same area). I do wish to come back. My rating is a 10 but if there was a 9.5 I would say that because the only thing wrong was the WIFI did not work all the time. These RV Parks need to work on that! The park was close to shopping. It seemed quiet; however, we did go during mid April so many of the snowbirds had left. We totally enjoyed staying there. It was a nice place! - JackieD

We reserved our site by telephone. The reservation process was quick and efficient. We were told that the office closes at 5:00PM and to call if we were going to arrive later which we did. The staff stayed an extra 1/2 hour to accommodate us. Directions to the park were easy to follow and access to the park is good. Check in was quick, easy and informative. Parameter roads are paved and Big Rig accessible. The site (39) was a back in and was plenty long and wide. Services were on the left but up front. I did not need an extension for shore power but did need to add another hose for water. There is no sewer connection but a good dump station is available. The site was hard packed dirt and came with a metal picnic table and fire pit. There is a small stocked lake nearby. A small book exchange is located near the washrooms. We poked our heads into the washrooms and found them nice and clean. This park is just a nice spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors. We were given a Wifi code but there is no signal available in the park. We paid an 8:00 reservation fee and $35.00 per night for a dirt pad with water and power. We did not feel that we paid a fair price. This should have been a $20.00 park. We will not be returning. There are no restaurants or services nearby. Shopping is about 15 minutes away by vehicle. - Rollin Ollens

This park continues to age and reflect poor cleaning by staff. The facilities are crumbling apart and are a disgrace for a Government park. The host workers basically work at the entry kiosk but don't work in the park itself. On one day I asked a host if it was possible to have the garbage picked up near our site. This was left by a previous camper. The host said it wasn't in their job description and I would need to take it to the dumpster myself as there were no staff to do this. This park used to be a jewel but has become very sad. We have decided to not support this park until the facilities improve and they get some employees to manage the duties. For the price you pay here it is absolutely the worst Riverside County Park hands down! - RV Dog

In just a few minutes you are away from the crowds. This little gem was a pleasant surprise. Pet friendly (but there is a $2.00 a day fee) with the water reservoir right outside your site. This recreation area has dry camp, equestrian and electric. We originally were going to stay for 2 days...but added 4 more on. A quiet oasis except for the sounds of the Sheriff's gun range at night. We really enjoyed our stay here. Lot spacing was very close with sunny/open exposure. The site surface was gravel. - SSW69

Unsafe, we left after 1 night. Lost $250, but could not stay. We stayed the night at WalMart and felt safer. Very tight spaces. Manager was friendly, tenants were not. Will never go near this place again. - Ted Cottingham

Old facilities unkempt, roaches are an epidemic, homeless on property, management not available after 5pm and weekends, gate code same for all (including previous evicted tenants), tenants are hard working and quiet (scared and continually threatened by management). Most sites had problems with hook up boxes, not all working. Old abandoned trailers and Park models. Stay at another park. - D Mummy

Diamond Valley RV Park advertises itself as a renovated park. There are tall weeds everywhere and old abandoned trailers.The showers were dirty, management rude and somewhat hostile. Not as advertised. - frosty316

We had stayed at this park before and had a wonderful time, but it had been approximately 15 years prior. We were very disappointed in the changes that had occurred. The majority of the park is occupied by permanent residences, which include RV's and park model mobile homes. There are only around 10 full hookup campsites that can be used for campers. I only saw one tent site, which looked nice. The bathrooms that were located near us were closed the entire time we were there & smelled really bad. There was only one picnic table for all of the RV sites and you can get a fire pit upon request. There are 2 ponds, one looks like they are trying to empty it & the other looked nicer, but still had a lot of trash in & around it. There was no longer a store, or the large clubhouse that we remembered. The playground looked run-down & had graffiti written on it. The first night we were there, 2 men were involved in a fist fight. It was not very peaceful because there was always dogs barking and loud music playing. We couldn't walk our dog like we usually do, because there were always stray dogs running around that looked sick. The price for this campground was an astonishing $45 a night, what is normally paid for a camping resort. This campground is no resort. - lttldee

Front desk needs greater experience to handle questions...also how difficult would it be to have a matching service to match tennis and pickle ball players.....don't know if the owners care enough to look at these reviews ....I have requested this sort of thing to them in the past when at the park. As others have said....expensive during the spring and during the tennis tournament at Tennis Garden....and the train and traffic is loud in the less expensive sites. If you have a small RV you may feel overwhelmed by all the large 35-40 foot 5th wheels and class A motor homes. We mostly go to the tennis tournament in March and play tennis and pickle ball.....only one tennis court left and it is line-marked for pickleball....tennis seems to be on the way out here. - mfm51

First the good, it is a beautiful park with lots of green areas and trees, the trees are trimmed so there is no danger in damage and it is easy to get satellite service. The clubhouse and pool area are nice and they appear to have a lot of activities to keep the full timers occupied. Now the bad, sites are too small in length for today's coaches. We could barely fit our 40' motorhome and car into the site. The streets are narrow and because of the small site size, cars are on the edge of the road. The trains and freeway are noisy. The checkin was awful, one person (nice) to answer the phone, check people in, and answer questions from full-timers, in a park this size this was a terrible first impression. Not worth the $100 a night for a "deluxe" site even in their busiest time of year. - sjones

Pricey but beautiful and immaculate every where you look. Office staff is excellent. This is probably our tenth visit to Emerald Desert and have already made our 20219 reservations. One negative: The longer you ait to make your reservations, the more it will cost you. - SSM 46
