This park is huge and right in the middle of an extensive retail area. Grocery shopping, fast food, movie theater all within short walking distance. There was a complimentary "Harvest Feast" the week of Thanksgiving that was catered, and pleasant. Lots of activities going on all the time: poker nights, shuffleboard, cribbage, craft night, etc. The new pickle ball courts are really nice. The pool is heated, and the hot tub is large, deep and covered -- enjoyable in any weather. The showers are large and clean, and the residents are friendly. There is a mix of short term, long term, and permanent tenants. Some of the spaces have been improved with park model style units and landscaping that looks professional. There are also some older rigs that look like they haven't been moved in a decade. Lots of snowbirds, some of which have been coming to this place for 15+ years. If we could have afforded it, we would have stayed through the entire winter. Sites are close together, but have paved patios and an extra parking space for your tow vehicle. Some sites have a storage shed available as well. We didn't pay for the Wi-Fi, but our Sprint coverage was excellent. - Fezzik_Mallard

I stayed here with a group. The park is older but they are working on it. They are currently converting back-to-back sites to pull-throughs. The sites are a bit close. Close to stores and restaurants. We will return. - TripleE

Note that the nightly rate reflects a monthly rate of $550 divided by 30, because there is no way to enter a monthly rate in the review. We stayed here for a month during our recent move from CA to OK. This is an older park, but it is well maintained. All sites have nice concrete patios and there lots of trees, providing for a pleasant environment. There are a number of full-time residents and folks from colder climates who winter here. The park is within walking distance of shopping and restaurants, making it very convenient. They provide free Time Warner digital cable with great TV reception, but free WiFi is only available in the club house. Since we were staying here for a month we subscribed to high speed Time Warner internet at our site for around $50, giving us pretty much all the technology in our trailer that we had at home. We would definitely stay here again. - The Herm

Rate is Passport America. Can accommodate RV's up to 30'. This is hard seal camping in a secure, gated carpark at the back of a large mobile home complex. The complex is clean and tidy and the people friendly. Full lookups but the restrooms nearby were locked. We were asked if we were self sufficient for restrooms and so I don't know if they are ever used. A pristine pool and jacuzzi are open to RV'ers and you are able to use the showers and restrooms here. Laundry facilities available. You need to check in the office first, show vehicle registration papers and ID, and pay a $50 refundable deposit for a gate opener to the RV section. It isn't a destination stop but more than adequate for a place to stop while passing through to somewhere else. We would stay here again. - Monaire Corporati

Rate is the daily average based on a weekly special of $186. Very nice, well-maintained park mostly populated by winter snowbirds. Most sites are back-ins, fairly wide level gravel with concrete patio and asphalt spot to park the car. There are a couple of rows of long pull-throughs that appear to be used for short-termers and rallies. Hookups worked well, including cable and wi-fi. Everything well-maintained. Beautiful central recreation area with multiple pools and spas, very nice clubhouse, fitness center and laundry. Although the park is great, there is not a lot to do in Hemet. - Ray Z

Can't say enough about this park. If you can't find an activity to participate in you're a couch potato.
Park offers 3 swimming pools, 3 hot tubs, a full gym, pickle ball, chip and put area, numerous nearby golf courses, indoor shuffleboard. Lots of activities. Enough activities offered in snowbird season that you cannot do all that are offered daily. Water volleyball in 2 pools daily, water aerobics, instructor led workout programs, poker night, weekly patio parties. There are 1043 sites, enough for any RV rally. Vintage Antique RV show annually. Come join the fun. - Bobster43

Very nice park. Free and strong wi-fi. Good cable TV. Many spaces are mostly gravel, with a small cement patio area. I think there could be a lot less gravel and more cement! The pool area is spectacular - 3 beautiful pools. The only reason I gave them 9 stars and not 10 is that the trash facilities are inadquate. It's a hugh 600 space park and there's only 2 trash bins, one on the east side and one on the west. They come around and pick up the trash at your site once a week. REALLY - once a WEEK! Who only has trash once a week?!! We also had an ant problem and had to spread cleanser around the tires. They need to insectiside the spots when they empty and keep the bushes trimmed better. But the office was nice about coming out and spraying when I called them. The asst. manager was very nice and helpful. They also need to provide a table at the sites; there aren't any. The park has lots of activities during the season. However we were there in July and the activities were over. - Scimastr

Here's the pros, electric works 50amp and 30 amp. Lots of sewer smells from vents and long term residents with old rigs scattered around the park! We stayed here 2 winters and probably won't be back! The pool decking is dilapidated and covering falling off! Men's bathroom has Black Mold all through the cabinets. When you take a shower, water fills up and you have to stand in dirty as drains are very slow. Asphalt in entire park is crumbling and you will constantly track it into your rig. Several RVers have had their bicycles stolen over a 4 month period, lots of homeless people outside on streets of Hemet. The spa pool is old and not very clean, overall not a great RV experience. Probably will never return as no improvements at all over a years time as we were told there would be. - seaguy

This park was supposed to get a major upgrade from the owner of the day but due to a legal issue the ownership changed. Resort was the name given by previous owner and referred to what the park was going to be redeveloped into. This didn't happen and the park is inhabited mainly by low income people. There are also thefts occurring and stories of drug dealing. The spaces are tight and the sites and roadways are run down. The manager is pleasant and helpful, but doesn't have a clue about what snowbirds and winter escapees are looking for in a resort. - Britcanuck

NOT a resort! Almost nothing for activities, save for a puny bingo game on Wed. nights and an ice cream social (costs a buck, two for a root beer float) on Saturday. I realize it is summer, but what 'resort' doesn't have activities? The clubhouse has no air conditioning, RV spaces are tiny and close together, very few trees so no shade, mostly permanent residents, many old dilapidated units, several old mobiles located in park. Manager is pleasant enough, but assistant is an admitted pothead who is rude and complains constantly about how she doesn't have enough time to do all the work they demand from her. Although the facilities are clean, it is more a place that caters to low-income permanent residents who have nowhere else to go. They should be ashamed to call this place a resort. - Traveler112349

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

Two sisters in management office are very rude, disrespectful, and unprofessional in duties concerning proper maintenance of the park. R.V. park has severe problem with theft, vandalism, dog feces on grounds. Busy liquor store just outside of entrance gate and across street from S. J. High School, and also farm animals in yard pens located next door to park; this place is anything but quiet. Old R.V. park with mostly disabled long-term residents in older trailers. Don't waste your time or money staying here. It's not recommended no matter how much cheaper the price might be...horrible experience!
Be smarter than us and go somewhere else. - Mark Yamahammer

Small little fishing lake. I enjoyed this park. Had a good time. The park was easy to navigate. The spaces with hookups were easy to use. The over appearance was good. It's what you would expect from a small fishing lake. Everything I used worked fine. - frosty316
Dec 2014 - $35.00
Overall a fair place to camp or rest for a couple of days or so, if you can become accustomed to the swarms of flies and the smell of the dairy farm close by. I don't believe that the lake(s) have been stocked for fishing in a long time. The manager was friendly and courteous enough to make it all worthwhile for a short period of time anyway. But once again, similar to the situation at "Diamond Valley" park--There are
predominantly long-term or "permanent" residents here that have allowed the general maintenance & appearance of the park to slowly degrade to the point of being falsely Identified as a "shantytown". - Mark Yamahammer

Rate is Passport America. This is an older place that is primarily a fishing park. The is a lot of dirt and very little grass. Showers are pay for use. Lot of full time residents. - Tampajohn

This review will be primarily for the Temecula Valley Wine and Balloon Festival camping experience. It was around $430 for the weekend for a Water/Electric site; a little more for a full hookup site. That price includes 2 combo passes to the festival. I stayed at Campsite A which was right next to the festival main entrance. That was a great location! I tried getting a full hookup spot, but those sold out instantly. At least I was able to get electricity. For the festival they opened up a huge dry camp area in the dirt lot next to campsite A. I'm guessing there were about 300 sites marked off in the dirt. If you don't mind crowded, dusty, and loud dry camping this is for you. The biggest plus camping for the festival is you don't have to deal with the traffic getting out. I've heard it can take 1 - 2 hours to get out using the one lane road, especially on Saturday night.
Our biggest complaint was the dust. With dry dirt everywhere and occasional high winds, you get dirty. I imagine during a regular stay at the campgrounds it wouldn't be too bad, but with a crowded festival it was really bad. Other complaint was not enough portable bathrooms in the campsite. There was 1 nearby and after 1 day with a full campsite...lets just say I'm glad I don't have to sit.
I'm definitely doing it again next year. - Arash

This is a large campground on the eastern side of Temecula. You feel very much like you are in the country when staying here. The is a large lake, hills & mountains, and lots of very nice scenery here this spring. You can even see the distant snow on the higher mountains. I have also seen hot air balloons rising in the distance the last two mornings. There are a number of attractive wineries close by. Many of those places have restaurants. Most of these restaurants are closed at 4pm.
This is an ideal weekend for camping and the place is pretty full. But outside of the weekend you should be able to get in here without a reservation. This is a ways off the freeway though. And if you camp here it is an 8 mile drive to the grocery store, and restaurants open after 4pm. - RFCN2

This is always a popular place to camp for a few days for us as it is close to where we have our base. This is not an RV park but rather a camp ground. Many spaces are satellite friendly, spaces are quite level but on dirt with only selected sites that have grass nearby.
Good cell phone service and your personal hot spot on either Verizon or AT&T works very well. The campground also has wifi that you can pay for.
This is a very easy park for new RV'ers to practice their skills as there is a lot of room between sites and the dirt forgives mistakes that might be made!
Dog friendly and lots of room to walk fish, or even boat. No body contact with the lake is allowed, but there is a splash park that operates in the summer. There is a small store and gas pumps on the campground property .
Local area provides wine tasting, restaurants of all kinds, food shopping and fuel along with other stores. A very nice park, a bit rustic but a chance to feel you are a long way from the city while just being outside of a good sized city. This campground is well worth a visit!! - Old Detective
Sep 2015 - $32.00
Nicely maintained park. Note: there are only a handful of 50 amp sites. Roads are paved with sites being hard packed dirt. Some large trees throughout park but we were able to use our satellite dish. Our space was long enough to hold 40 foot trailer and truck easily. Decent spacing between sites. Our site did require some leveling. Quiet area yet you are close to Temecula and the wineries. There is no cell service at the park so they provide a free landline phone for you in the lounge. Great value and place to stay if you want to do some wine tasting or see Old Town Temecula. Wi-Fi is free but very slow. - mcharland

Very remote park with trails and lots to do in the surrounding area. Did a long term stay and was very happy with the management and park hosts. Weekends can get crowded during peak times and wifi is poor due to it's location - lucky if you get cell service or text. Go there to relax and enjoy nature, site-see. - PixieStardust
Nov 2013 - $47.00
Nice quiet park in a rural setting. People are very friendly and our initial registration was very easy. Dirt pads, but that wasn't a problem at all; very level. Pet friendly. Unfortunately, the only reasons I will not return is lack of cell service and lousy Wi-Fi, although the park is advertised as having it. Otherwise, a very nice park. - JeffBobbi

Dissapointed. If you've never been here before, I would recommend not arriving after dark. Payment for site is collected at the guard shack, prior to being let in. You'll be giving a map, informed which are the 50 amp, 30 amp, and which sites are privately owned. We drove around, with car in tow, looking for a site along with a few other RVers, mostly circling the 50 amp sites with no luck. Frustrated, I went back to the guard shack and told them to find me a site, or give me a refund, it was at this time I was informed that more than likely, no 50 amp are available, and I should probably go to the back end of the park where the 30 amp smaller sites are. Lots of trees, and lots of dead leaves on the ground. Sites are dirt with some pea gravel (not enough). The water canals are murky green. The heated pool was about 76 - 78 deg, we didn't last long, neither did other swimmers we saw. Train ride is available for 25 cents, weekends only, miniature golf available, we didn't see anyone playing. We won't return. - RV-luvin

Has a family lodge for the kids and a separate Adult Lodge for the seniors who like peace and quiet. Train ( miniature ) rides are offered on week ends. Lots of room to walk around the canals and grounds. Has two swimming pools, one for the families and one for adults only. Has an exercise room for adults. Free wi-fi at the lodges. The pay WiFi is very slow in the park. Here is a short stroll in the evening https://youtu.be/I25l2QewfDI. - Joe O

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
Aug 2015 - $40.00
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
