9 Parks near California City, California
Sep 2014 - $35.00
What we liked most about Silver Saddle Ranch was the peace and quiet. It is a large resort acreage so there was plenty of room to get away from the central complex. The park is also located about 12 miles from town which really gives a sense of being away from it all. Nice ponds, landscaping and lots of trees added to the country feel. On the down side...the central complex closes mid week so be prepared for that. And, on weekends they have a LOT of families come up to visit so it gets busy. Not much in the way of on-site RV services so come prepared. Otherwise, a very nice spot to spend a week. - MtnMutt

Very quiet during February but beautiful. Resort has small lake surrounded by park setting. The pool was not open (too cold) but the hot tub was (loved it!). Restaurant open just on weekends but that was fine with us. Come stocked as California City is 20 minute drive by car. - MtnMutt

This is a membership resort that allows use by non-members at higher prices. Beautifully landscaped throughout with many top-notch activities/amenities such as horseback riding, swimming, mini-golf, and a bartender who mixes great cocktails. I would have given a 10, but the sewer backed up on me. When I informed the front desk of this, I was told the same thing happened at the same site last week. They should have fixed it last week! - morganhillers

There were two reasons why we gave the park a low rating. The WiFi was based on satellite service so it was slow and spotty. In desperation to check out e-mail we stood under the router to connect and had to type standing up. The advertised pool was there and full of water but the water was green and the gate was padlocked. I have never seen a dirtier pool.
The owner was very friendly, but we felt the Park was not a good value for the price.
We were able to use our satellite and pick up TV. - WNC Traveler

A nice park, with friendly staff. Every site has a picnic table and charcoal grill. All sites that have access to WiFi are back-in. There are some pull-throughs, but they are out of WiFi range. Close to Hwy 14, and about 15 miles from Red Rock Canyon State Park (worth seeing). - ta96silver

Friendly staff, and for an overnight stay, a pull-through no less. It fit the bill and worked for us. The site was sunny with some shade, No, it is not the Taj Mahal, but neither is the price. If back this way, we WILL stay again. - Len C

Pulled into this "park", looked around at the lack of amenities, shade, trees, etc. The only thing there appeared to be an abundance of was blowing sand and wind. The few units in the "park" appeared to have been there for a very extended time. Needless to say we did not stay. - sandstorm

We stayed here 2 nights. There isn't anywhere else to stay. It isn't an RV park; most sites are RV's, but they are extended stay. It is a run down town, and this park is right in town. It's okay for a night, but there's not much to do. There is a coffee shop not far from the park which is very nice. It serves great coffee and other drinks, has fresh donuts and serves sandwiches, too. - bonne1

There are a lot of permanent residents in the park and some very run down trailers, so don’t expect a beautiful park. It worked for us as an overnight while passing through and was nice and quiet at night. It felt fairly safe since one of the residents was a sheriff’s deputy. The lady manager was very nice and accommodating. The service is 30 amp but seemed to be strong service. We did not have reservations, but there were lots of open spaces. We did not have a problem with satellite since there are no trees. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well. The prior reviewers have pointed out the things to do in town, so I will not go into them. There is a surprisingly good food market in town. As noted, do expect wind. We would stay here again if passing through, but only for a night on the way. - TheJim

Due to budget cuts, there was no visible staff presence. Not even rangers. The visitor center is closed in the off season, as is the dump station (even though there's a sign saying the dump station is open on Sundays). Other than that, the campground is the same as ever. Nobody seems to be taking advantage of the lack of park supervision to behave badly. - sdayman

This place is absolutely stunning. There are beautiful geological formations, like outdoor stalactites and stalagmites which surround the canyon walls. There is a beautiful desert area in the middle with nature trails and a dessert tortoise area by the visitor center. We visited in March and so there were several wild flowers in bloom. We also arrived on a weekday so it was not busy at all. We did not use the water, pit toilets, or dump station so I cannot comment on those. - cherryalmond

This was our second visit. This time we picked site #4 for its seclusion and space. The state continues the nice upgrades. The handicap sites #1, 2 have shade shelters, nice restroom, and even a hose-friendly spigot. Handicap #6 is nice as well. They're adding yet another handicap site up near the cliffs. The handicap sites are well-suited for a Class C or smaller. The dump station was open on Sunday Oct. 20th for a "trial run" from 9 to 5 or so. Fifteen dollar fee to dump, but I didn't take advantage of it, nor did anybody else it from what I saw. We really enjoyed the weekend and we will return. - sdayman

BLM - OHV Rec area with dispersed free camping. The main road in is paved. Several large staging areas and sites for camping with any size rig though not paved. Sprint phone and Verizon Wi-Fi card worked at the Visitors Ctr lot at Hwy 14 but not in where we camped. Large trucks coming in and out the first 3 - 4 miles of the area but not beyond that. We would stay here again. - OnDaRoad

Stayed here on the overflow sites for three nights. Full park due to military base construction workers. Full price is 17., overflow is 5. Used the restrooms, laundry, day room, dump station and was able to refill water tanks. - washingtoncolorado

We stayed at the campground for a week prior to Christmas. There were plenty of sites available at that time. Sites are relatively level, only requiring a couple of blocks. There is a check in board at the entrance of the park where you place your money in the locked box and registration card on the back of the board. I had contact with the camp host prior to our arrival checking on availability however never saw him during our stay. The Wi-Fi was down when we got there and it took about four days before we got it back up. There is no cable and no TV signal. There was a Direct TV in the lounge however that was down as well throughout our stay. BX, commissary, and service station were open except for Christmas. Most other base functions to include the club were down. A decent place to stay. - ownedafew

The base is very easy to get to from Hwy 58. You will go under a train trestle just off of Hwy 58, the height sign says its 14’. The park is very clean and the camp host very welcoming. You share the hook-up area with the neighboring site which makes the driver’s side slide outs of your RV inches from your neighbors. We used 2 electrical cords due to the length from the back of our rig to the electrical box. There are 2 roads inside the park, a perimeter road and an interior ring so rigs can pull in from either direction. Parking of your TV or toad should NOT protrude onto the perimeter/interior roadway. There was an individual in a Class A who parked his toad in front of his rig on the interior road, while we were there, which impeded our ability to stay on the roadway. We enjoyed our stay and will return. - MAFLAF

Older park, but all we saw was in good repair. Sites were well spaced - many have shade at various times of day. Electric-water-sewer all good - 121 volts on each leg of 50A w both A/C's running. Level sites. Not much to do here except relax after a long day on the road - exactly our liking. Quarter mile south of Rt58 - eastern-most exit for Boron - easy on/off. We'd stay here again if thru this area. Nice folks, too. - jtids

Old style park, but full hookups with 50 amp service. No cable, and wifi is available but weak as you get further from office. Great value for money. Passport America good for one night only. - grunt50
May 2016 - $14.00
Level gravel pull thru with full h/ups. Good WiFi, cell and satellite service. P/A discount was $14. Odd shower set up - 2 stalls and 2 side by side toilets all in 1 room. Co-ed but you can lock from the inside. Great water pressure. Only stayed overnight in a 37' RV with tow which we did not have to disconnect. - julesverne

I really enjoyed my stay here; four nights mid week. I didn't see anybody else staying more than 1-2 nights. In daytime the park was almost deserted.
Other reviews pretty much have it. Small park, water & electric only. Convenient to Tehachapi. Water pressure didn't seem as low as others described; electric was great at 119 volts with both AC's cranked.
Only downside was that my site was deceptively unlevel, front was about 6" low no matter how I parked, so I had to use some boards to get within the range of my jacks. I'm not sure all the sites are like that, but be prepared. It's pretty flat terrain (it's at an airstrip, after all), that's why it's deceptive.
Nice small laundry room, machines were in good shape and only $1 per load. Bring your own quarters. My best campground laundry experience to date.
Wi-Fi is available through a third party, and it's pretty costly, $10 a day, I think, so I didn't use it. If you drive over to the airfield, you can connect for free.
While I was there, they had to close the dump station because of bees. I assume it was just temporary. Love's Travel Stop is available up the street. - bobk3d

Purely an overnight stop for us. It filled that need well. A very pleasant Englishman is the operator. If he is out on the campus, there's an easy self check-in system. He posts the reserved sites to avoid. Our site was fairly level with water and electricity only. That's all we needed. The water pressure was very poor. So we opted to use our onboard water and refilled/topped-off one time. Access to CA Hwy 58 was easy. IMHO it is not a "destination" campground unless you had other purposes in the area. A clean, friendly campground with no free wifi or cable TV. Fortunately our satellite worked nicely. If I was passing through again, I would indeed stay here again. - DMcKitt

Fairly isolated RV park near Tehachapi, minutes from town, with nice open views of the mountains to the North. We enjoy staying here because it has near access to the town, also near the Tehachapi Loop, world famous railroad landmark. Park is adjacent to a glider airport and there are usually gliders being launched after 8 am, but fun to watch. Sewer wasn't at the site but there was a dump station on the way out. No problem getting a satellite signal with Direct TV. - elduque

This park is actually a Mobile Home Park with RV parking around the perimeter. About half the sites have concrete pads, the other half (around the east perimeter) are just grass and you need to 'angle' park to accommodate the space since there is not enough room to back directly in. The park is close to the train tracks, you will hear them pass through during the evening. The manager is very nice and willing to work with anyone although he will not take reservations. We called the day before to be sure there would be a space to park in. The park is also adjacent to the local airport, but it was pretty quiet the 2 nights we stayed here. The park isn't recommended for long term stay, but if you need to stay a night to rest up during your trip it will fit the bill. - JayTee
