ANTS, flies from the livestock and to top it off, the site dump station was plugged. Didn't discover that until I pulled the black water handle! Site was un-level asphalt. Lot's of dirt surrounding the site. Ample space from your neighbor and plenty of grass play area for children. We've been here several times but didn't remember the ants and flies, but the dump station forces us to stay away. - SD75mac

Have stayed here before. Large Sites with tables and fire pits. Utilities worked fine. Verizon strong. Dog friendly, Kid friendly. Plenty of grass, fishing available. Would have graded higher, except ANTS!! Make sure you spray hoses, electrical cords, jacks, tires with ant spray. Some use Comet Powder Pot cleaner around RV. Office will spray area if asked. It is a beautiful Campground. No Wi-Fi or cable. Over the air TV available. - silverado

I would give it a 10 if it had cable TV and Wi-Fi. We had a pull through and was level but some sites the picnic table is on the wrong side. The laundry was good, it is in the open. - hotpepperkid

This is an older KOA. The very friendly staff checked us in quickly. The interior roads are tight as are the sites. A close tree prevented me from using our awning and if I were able to use it, it would have hit my neighbor's rv. The utilities worked ok. There is no cable and I couldn't use my satellite because of trees blocking. I was able to get an OTA signal. There are other sites on the other side of the park that seem larger but are mostly taken by long term folks. The best thing about this park is you can access events located at gate 9 thru a gate. In our case the SoCal rv show. - Recycled

I would never stay here again even though it is so close to the S Cali area. I realize there is not to many campgrounds to pick from but we have had better in the area many times.
For the price $55, the spots are very narrow to the point that room extensions will be pretty close to the camper next door. Forget the use of the awning or table, bbq etc.
Seems like it was mostly the local crowd from the LA area. The pool sounded and looked like the big attraction.
Prior to leaving I warned the office of a car parked in the roadway many days before we were to leave. This car parked in the roadway would make our exit impossible without backing out of our pull thru site. The office staff was useless when I voiced concern well in advance of our departure date.
Sure enough 8 am I needed to pull out and the car was parked in the roadway yet again another night.
Had to disconnect the towed and back out because of lack of management control of the campground.
Never again when such good camping is a stone throw away if you plan ahead. - 45Ricochet

They do not pre-assign site numbers. Sites are pull-thru but very close to the neighboring spot. They do have double hook-ups in each space so you pull in from either direction. We were on end spot and had a nice patch of grass, but sprinklers came on full blast at 7 a.m. for 45 minutes (in a drought). Soaked everything we had sitting outside and couldn't get out of our RV without getting soaked. Complained to 4 people working in park and all of them claimed it was not their responsibility and that I'd have to tell their boss. Wood fires are not allowed but propane can be used. - mosyn

This park is not recommended for anyone with a trailer. The reason is the park entrance is by a NARROW, ONE LANE washboard road, and if you meet someone coming the other way, you cannot pass. If you do decide to camp here, the campground is on a hill, and the sites are not level, but are on asphalt. There is a charcoal grill and a picnic table, and water is at a central spigot. The rangers are very friendly, and the campground is quiet. - res08hao

While Chino Hills State Park has existed for a couple of decades, or more, the new small campground was just opened in May of 2005. Maximum length for RV's is 28 feet. All spots are back in. In a few years the trees they have planted will provide nice shade. The 24 spots are all paved and pretty level, and are terraced up the side of a hill, so everyone gets a view! The restrooms and showers are brand new and immaculate! Lot's of hiking, mountain biking trails. The park is about 12,000 acres with lots of Oak trees. When you enter the park you will drive about 3 miles on a narrow dirt road until you reach the center of the park where everything is paved. Very helpful Rangers on duty and easy to find. Very quiet. This little campground is one of the best kept secrets in the area. You will feel like you are 200 miles from anywhere, when in fact you are less than 4 miles from civilization! You can hear the coyotes at night. Get's the ocean breezes from Orange County. - chockwald

We have stayed here before, in 2010 in our former Class A. The location, on top of a flat hill between the 10 and 60 freeways and just off the 57, is very good because even though it's far from LA, you can get there easily via freeway. The view from the hill are absolutely spectacular.
The spaces are very spacious, with lots of trees, lawns, and small ponds. There are lots of permanent rigs here, but lots of space for the transients like us. Unfortunately, WiFi is best near the entrance buildings, not so good in the spaces. All amenities are available, but we didn't use them so can't report on restrooms, showers, laundry, etc. We were on a pad that had a picnic table and fire ring, which we didn't use. We only needed 30 amp, but I'm sure 50 is available. I don't remember the lot number or price we paid, but it seemed reasonable.
The physical location is the prime advantage. Yes, it's 30 miles from Pasadena, but you can get there easily. We loved waking up to the gorgeous views of the mountains. We'd stay here again. - MargaretB

We might have never decided to venture so close to LA without a friend telling us about this park. The sites are very spacious and have paved parking spots with lawn surrounding. We did see one skunk in the evening, but he was not interested in us. There are large sites for big rigs and most, I think are back-in. We were very comfortable there, but we did pick up some ants. Watch your hoses and power lines. We found that Bon Ami or Conmet will send them packing. - Jack Hartman

Convenient location off Highway 10, with a guard at the entrance. We stayed in space #A97. With a BearExtender WiFi booster, we got WiFi about 60% of the time. Pretty park with full hookups. Public golf course about 2 miles away. No view at our spot, but we would stay again. - Nevadatude

This park is beautiful! Lots of grass, trees, & the Santa River runs right through it. Paved roads for a great morning walk. Also the bike path goes right through here. Very friendly and helpful staff. You can stay 6 months but must leave for a week, then you can return. Pets are a $1.00 a day. The only complaint is the freeway noise. Yet not bad enough to make us leave. - C.DE.

Nice stay we arrived and quickly checked in. Good and quick office work. We had space 139 near river. This is an urban campgound with a rural feel. Big space lots of trees river and natural areas for kids to explore. We were overnight for disney. We usual stay at one close by Disney ($110/nite). Here you can have a campfire, roast smores, and explore. Nice bike trail nearby too. Huge spaces with lots of room to maneuver rig. Will return. - Pumpman2

Bathrooms were not clean - a deal breaker for us. Very nice, spacious site. Freeway noise an issue, but unavoidable. We witnessed the same dirty bathrooms for 3 days, so must believe that no one was cleaning them. - Jac RV

This RV park has been in existence for 4 years, and is still a work in progress. It is very rustic with no pavement. Staff is friendly, and helped me back into site #14. Eventually there will be a 1 acre fishing pond. The hole has been dug, but they will need to line it so it will hold water, because the soil is decomposed granite, and very porous. Near the Mt. Baldy ski area, two nice restaurants, hiking and mountain biking trails. Set at about 4,500 feet elevation in the Angelus National Forest with views of Mt. Wilson to the west, and Mt. Baldy to the east. - chockwald

For this location, you have to know what you're going into and if that's your thing... then it's all good!! It's rustic and all dirt. There are only a couple of sites with full hookups (and they are not bad). Again, if you're looking for rustic!! The surroundings are beautiful and that I did enjoy even as a confessed Glamper. Beware of the power supply, it says 50amps, but no ... at least not consistently. Use a surge protector, for sure!!! It's mostly for tent campers, who fill the place up on weekends and don't mind overlapping their tents onto your site. But, they were all really nice and I met some good people that I shared a beer or two with. The staff is nice and very helpful. The kids loved it, but keep an eye out, there is wildlife, mainly rattlesnakes, raccoons and an occasional late evening bear. All said and done, when I'm feeling like getting down and gritty, aside from my glamping lifestyle, I'll go back!! - Glamper Dude

First I will say that we did not stay here, but went to preview it before reserving. The good: The area was prettier than I expected, didn't realize that area even existed. Reminded me of the San Gorgonio area a bit. The creek was this place's saving grace. It was awesome how you can camp RIGHT on the creek. Some places say you are on the creek, but these really are. It was fantastic. The bad: No shade, no grass. Went on a Wednesday and the gate was locked, restaurant/check-in was closed. (Also closed Tuesday.) The place was completely empty except the permanent campers who also pretty much take up all the hook-up spots. There were two (of about 9) still available, but I don't think I would camp in those spots. The permanent guys aren't tidy. Plus those sites aren't on the creek. In a row (I guess you could say) behind. Also, the website makes this place look waaaay better than it is. I never did find restrooms or showers. It's basically just dirt along the creek. There were porta potties and a couple of water spiggots scattered about. A number of full and somewhat stinky trash bins. I seriously have no idea how they charge $50 a night. Bizarre. In their defense, there were some heavy rainstorms lately and maybe that had something to do with the condition of the place. Overall: I absolutely love, love, love creekside camping so I'd camp here anyway, but if you aren't the same, this certainly is one worth skipping. I brought my mom and sister. My mom wouldn't stay here and my sister said she "might." We have young kids and they loved playing in the water. While we were here, the water was moving quite fast at only about 3 feet at its deepest. Didn't see any fish, but I'd imagine there are some in there. Could set up a lounge chair right in the water and lounge all day long. - CHeller

We could hardly believe how rustic and beautiful Camp Williams was, considering it is within easy reach of a major metropolitan area - L.A.! It's nestled in a canyon formed by the San Gabriel Mountains, and the East Fork of the San Gabriel River runs right through the camp. RV sites are nestled among the trees for cool shade during the summer months, but have a beautiful view of the river. Tent sites are, literally, right along the banks. You can fish right from your tent! The Café offers a great place to grab a delicious meal, from a pancakes & eggs breakfast to a juicy hamburger so you can take a break from cooking. We had a great time here, and look forward to visiting again soon! - bcbounders

We have a 45' coach which often limits our choices. We were pleasantly surprised at not only the size of each space, but also the overall cleanliness of the park. It was a joy to stay here. - Don A

two parts to this campground, the older is mostly dirt with some grass areas and has been load in the past. the new part is modern with concrete pads, A LOT of grass and trees. this is a very nice park and a deal at the price. This is our first choice when visiting family in the area. Wifi is okay but the cable needs to get negotiated... - Sergent Major

I was impressed with this campground. We stayed at the Cottonwood campground and the sites were concrete, long, and spacious. Each site had a fire ring and table. The laundry room was clean as well as the campground. There were much to do at this campground like fishing, biking riding, and walking the trail. Shopping and dining is near by. We will be back. - 2Reese

Toilets and showers reserved for events. RV's are expected to use their own toilets and showers.
Entry road is dirt with lots of potholes but no problem if one goes slow.
As mentioned reservations must be made at least a week in advance and only online. This was not a problem for us. - itsmee222

This was our worst camping experience in two years. Frankly, I am surprised that there are so many positive reviews. My wife and I found this campground to be very dismal. The RV parking on the upper level is dirty and has almost no aesthetic appeal. It's like a big dirt parking lot dug out of the side of the hill. There are no views to speak of, just a big wall of dirt out back and construction out front. The picnic tables for each site appear to have never been cleaned and are covered with stains and debris. There was no Wi-Fi or phone service in the RV area so you had to walk down the hill to the community center for any services of that sort and even there it was spotty. We were scheduled to stay one week but left after 3 nights - as soon as we could locate an alternative park. I certainly would not recommend this location to any RVers. It is a difficult drive in though a poorly maintained road and the park itself is dreary at best. - Sheridan

Now this is not your usual RV park. But by far the cheapest place offering full hookup sites in Orange County. A Christian event center runs this park which is located on their premise quite a bit outside of any town in the area. It is meant for longer stays, but travelers (and you don't need to be a religious person) are welcome. You have to go through the somewhat unusual reservation process though. Online only through their website and at least one week in advance. It took me a couple of follow up calls to confirm our reservation. Driving there you can use your GPS with the adress stated on the website. The last mile to the gate of the event center is a very bumpy country road. We wondered why the six speed bumps on the way were needed. The gate code was provided with the reservation confirmation. Checking in at the office was a bit different then with other parks. Little room to park the rig. Photo ID and insurance papers needed to be shown and photocopied. Once that was set and the credit card slided we could drive the last half mile up to the RV sites. Very bumpy indeed. Mostly gravel, some enormous potholes and a few low branches skirting the roof. You have to drive to the upper level of the park and I would recommend to take the left way when the road forks at the lower level. There are more sites on the lower level but these are not for public use. The sites are all back in and in #35 we had just about enough room to maneuver with our 34' RV (51' combined length). The sites with lower numbers provide more room and longer rigs would not have problems there. The sites are gravel, provide full hookups in OK shape, even cable. We needed no leveling equipment. The WiFi was OK, not the fastest, but good enough for emails and web browsing. Our Verizon worked on the lower level but not up on our site. Very friendly and considerate neighbors. The place is very safe and very quiet, especially at night. Be prepared for some christian events on and around the lower level from Friday night to Sunday afternoon including early morning music and singing, prayers and more music and singing throughout the day. No noise after 10 pm. Overall, this is an off the beaten path option to park your RV. I would not recommend going there if it is for less than at least three days. The reservation and check in hassle along with the long and bumpy drive in and out is not worth it if it is only for a night. We stayed for six nights, enjoying the remoteness, safety and quietness. We also enjoyed the low rate and did not mind the somewhat long drives to the L.A. and Orange County attractions. We will come back. - TheSchweitzers

Everything else aside, the staff at Orangeland are awesome
From the smiling folks behind the counter to the awesome guys who lead you to your site and help you get parked correctly, everyone we encountered went out of their way to be helpful, friendly, and pleasant
We had a deluxe pull through space and our 43' pusher just fit although there is a parking space for a toad as well
The park has been there a while and the space sizes reflect the days before mega rigs with 4 big slides; between the width of the space and the trees you will probably not be able to put out your awning
The upside is the trees provide a good bit of shade throughout the day
Getting out when we left entailed a small amount of scraping against a hedge that came up to the edge of the pad
The grill area was great and the guys in the golf carts come out and light the grills for you
The grills are professional and huge and you could grill a rack of brontosaurus ribs
The entire park is neat, clean, groomed, and spotless
The pool is crystal clear as is the spa/hot tub
The store has lots of RV supplies, hardware, souvenirs, dry goods, staple foods, cold and freezer foods and the prices aren't bad
They offer a daily shuttle service to Disneyland/Disney Adventure Park for just $3.00 both ways with several departure and return options
Utilities were all fine but make sure you have a water pressure regulator
The staff tells you up front the pressure is high
This park was a highlight of our trip and if I was ever in the area I would not hesitate to stay there again. - 3browns

Fabulous fresh citrus to pick everywhere. Great staff. Our truck needs repair, extending our stay an unexpected 8 days. They moved our 5er with forklift to a new spot. This place may be a bit pricey, but great! - Ken Camp

The location of this park is great if you plan to visit Disney. The staff was very friendly and offered lots of information about the area. Our site was concrete with a table and umbrella. There appears to be some full time residents with quarters and other vehicles that take away from the overall rating. The dog park is covered with small pebbles which seems to hold the pee smells. Pets are not allowed on the grass in the park or outside the front entrance. - Michael47
