4 Parks near Hemet, California
Feb 2016 - $18.00
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

We have had the dubious pleasure of staying at Casa Del Sol for last 2 years ( November to March ). We had high hopes when we heard there was new management for 2015/2016. As always you should be careful what you hope for. The current Management seems to be on some sort of mission to alienate the very people that pay the bills. From all appearances the park is understaffed from a maintenance point of view. The general upkeep of the grounds ranges from mediocre to awful. They decided to put in a pickle ball court which I would guess cost quite a bit of money especially when they had to redo the cement due to level issues. Lessons were to begin in January but the court is still not ready as far as I know. In the meantime there is hardly any functioning lights inside the park and a walk to the rundown dog run at night is not for the feint of heart.
It is very hard to tell what the philosophy is for the park. They seem to be buying older fifth wheels with the intent of renting them. In the two years we have been staying at Casa Del Sol we have never had an update from management or news of any kind about what is happening in the park. This combined with a Manager whose people skills are non existent has created an atmosphere of distrust and confusion.
You might ask why we would stay in such a place. That is easy, it is the wonderful people that call Casa Del Sol home in the winter. Many of them have been coming for 15 years or more. The volunteer work is legendary in organizing virtually every activity including, golf, water aerobics, billiards, bus trips , Dinners, lunches, Breakfasts, you name it.
We had a few issues with management and we have heard of several others, some very troubling. We have therefore left the park for another with mixed feelings. Our review for Casa Del Sol RV park in Hemet would look something like this: - Overall park condition, 2 out of 5
- Management, 1 out of 5 (generous)
- residents of the park, 5 out of 5. - Davearmour
Jan 2014 - $38.00
We found this park to be fairly quiet and the residents friendly. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. They had some suggested sites for us to try. There are some that have issues with slide outs. We have a 31-foot rig with 2 slides on one side and we were able to find a spot. The dog area was nice (2 small side-by-side pens). The pool and the spa look nice but we were too busy to take advantage (others were certainly using it). Convenient to shopping and restaurants. - Hungry Horse Android
Feb 2014 - $20.00
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

After being on the road for almost 10 months we decided to winter here which is near our family. It is very well managed and very clean with 3 pools & 3 hot tubs as well as lots of activities. It is a secure gated community close to shopping. The sites all have pads, some bigger than others, we were given a choice of 3. There are a lot of snowbirds from Canada and northern US states which we thoroughly enjoyed - part of traveling is meeting others! There are a lot of activities including water polo, pickle ball, poker. cribbage and even pot lucks in the ballroom. During the winter they bring in a lot of bands and even have free DJ and appetizers near the pool on Friday nights. They have a laundromat, billiard room, gym and chipping/putting green. There's even a golf club with discounted golf twice a week! Hemet is not a destination for sightseers but you are within about an hour of San Diego, 2 hours to LA and 1/2 hour to Temecula (Old Town, Wine Country). Also pet friendly with two dog parks. There's a weekly Farmer's Market (not exceptional) and sometimes weekend events like car shows - none of the activities were such that they seemed bothersome if you didn't want to participate. The front desk staff is very friendly & helpful and, for the most part, management staff responds to any issues which might arise.
The only negative we could mention is the library computers need upgrading and the wifi is terrible. They just made it free during our stay but it still didn't work very well. Some people had better luck than others.
We will definitely come back! - Catsinatrailer
Sep 2015 - $27.00
This is a great park for active guests. Pickleball, shuffleboard, sand volleyball, pool volleyball, horseshoes, etc. Three large swimming pools and three hot tubs. Very nice grounds, well kept up. Many of the motorhome sites are being remodeled with new surfaces and landscaping. Our site was very large and shaded, # 716, just across the road from the pickleball courts (4 courts with shaded seating). - robbo67
Apr 2015 - $34.00
The positives: Nice clubhouse; nice pools and hot tubs; lots of activities like pool, table tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, etc. Staff was friendly and attentive; Price wasn't too bad as it was a special rate for a week and then Passport America for a couple nights; We had ants and they immediately treated for them; We also needed a couple trees trimmed which they took care of.
The negatives: The free WiFi is fairly useless. We were visiting friends who had their own internet so we used their hot spot. We barely fit in our site and we were parked half on broken concrete and half off. The roads are a bit narrow for large rigs. Lots of homeless and other interesting folks in the area although we never felt in danger. - Free

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
Aug 2015 - $40.00
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

Not a resort at all, it's a run down park that hasn't been cared for in decades. Deteriorating mobile homes and travel trailers up to 30 yrs old. Manager is friends with all the permanent residents and has no ability or desire to improve anything. Teenagers come into the park from surrounding neighborhoods and use the pool and the game room. Homeless people walk through the park and there is no gate. A bicycle was stolen and one night there was a fight between some of the residents with yelling that could be heard throughout the park. Some trailers had black tarps on their roofs and we counted 3 sofas and one lounge chair sitting in front of them. We were told the lady that gets drunk and screams at the RVs at night is crazy. We noticed that a few other long term residents are mentally disturbed, one putting threatening signs on her door and in her Windows. One RVer had to endure weeks of the stench of raw sewage leaking on the ground because the manager would not force the autistic man to fix it. Eventually someone must have fixed it for him but the spill was never cleaned up. There was a crew that would come and spray weed killer all over the weeds weekly even when pets lived there. It was a stressful stay and we never felt safe there. - cross country
