4 Parks near Hesperia, California
Oct 2015 - $41.00
Older park with gravel sites, some concrete pads, full hookups, some nicely shaded areas. Nice pool and hot tub; very clean and well-maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful in getting us into a spot that was large enough for the motorhome and tow car. Note: if you are a "big rig" be sure to mention it when making reservations. Even the pull-throughs can be tight.
Some pluses: easy access off Main St., gated, pretty quiet, and lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Would stay there again. - Bigrig43

We recently booked a stay at Willow Oaks Park, in Hesperia, CA, based largely on their Good Sam listing (9.5, 9, and 7.5) and their website. We arrived on Thursday, October 1, and paid for four nights in advance ($148.00). Our experience was quite different than what was promised. Our site was basically a space on a gravel parking lot, with little space between rigs.
Their listing says cable access - but after you have paid you find that is only for monthly occupants.
Since we couldn't have cable access, the site says, "The club house includes a big screen television and comfortable seating area. . ." Looking through the window of the locked door, we saw a television with two old, saggy couches next to it. When we tried to gain access, we were told you could only go in if paying to reserve the club house.
Because of health issues, a spa is one of the reasons for us to choose a campground. Their "indoor spa" was quite anemic, not all of the jets were operational, the spa did not appear to be properly maintained and was in an old, dirty, cell with bars on the window.
BBQs and picnic tables that are pictured on their website are not anywhere near where you are parked.
First thing in the morning, I went to the office to say we would not be staying, and explained our dissatisfaction. I was referred to the sign which claims, "No refunds are given for early departure for any reason." - Touchwood

Stayed one night as planned. Started out on the wrong food as entrance is not clearly marked and GPS takes you to the gate of a mobile home park with no turn around. We have a 40 foot rig with a tow and basically hanging out in the street. Long story short after a phone call and help from a resident we are in the mobile home park which enables us in the rv park. A simple sign on the corner of the rv park and a no entrance to rv's on the mobile home park could solve all this. No cable as mentioned by others. Pull through was good, easy out, clean and quiet. Nice pool, close to shopping, friendly staff. Would stay here again. Watch your directions! - rdmike
Dec 2011 - $35.00
We stayed overnight during December. A number of locals were fishing in the lake in the afternoon. There was only one other party in the campground proper with us. We had a lake view with electric hookup but no water hookup. Other sites have both hookups but no view. We liked the place for a short stay, nothing to rave about, but quiet, clean, fenced off. I believe the electric box had a 50A receptacle (I only need 30A), but the fuses may have been 30A. If you need 50A just call to get the low-down. Overall, I would recommend the place for a stop-over. - TvE

We could only give a 3 rating because there was NOT a dump station! The campground is nice and if you like birds: plenty! We were here for one night only. We don't fish, but apparently the fishing is good! - billandme

This is a city of Hesperia municipal park, & the condition is about what one would expect for that. It's high desert, flat, open & a long way from luxurious. It's obviously under-funded & needs maintenance, but it's kept clean, well-run & quiet time was well enforced despite an annual "pow wow" being held there the weekend we were there. It's off a rural road, so there was very little road noise to disturb our sleep. It's certainly not a "destination" but, based on the reviews of the other places in the area, including a cousin I have who lives there, it seems the place of choice for an overnight or two if the opportunity presents. We would stay there again when in the area. The lake yielded 1 huge trout & several large catfish that we saw during our 3 days there. - gs2rt

Well maintained park operated by the County of San Bernardino. The sites are roomy, level and easy to access. Each site has a picnic table and metal fire ring. The Mojave River Forks name implies that a flowing river would be nearby. In fact, the Mojave River is not readily accessible to the campground and only flows seasonally. For watersports, Silverwood Lake is only a 10-minute vehicle ride away. The main activities featured at this park are hiking and equestrian trails. We made reservations ($5.00 fee) at www.co.san-bernardino.ca.us/parks/ and only had to show our reservation confirmation at the entrance gate. We camped at site #18 which did have a shade tree. A very quiet park and we would stay here again. - highlander92
Nov 2005 - $20.00
This park was nearly deserted when we camped here. There are a number of sites with full hookups and others (in a different section) without any. Each site has a table and a firepit, also a grill. There seemed to be a shade tree or two at each site, along with grassy areas. Sites are packed gravel and seemed ample for most rigs. The restrooms are older and fairly basic, but were well maintained. A quiet, peaceful place with lots of acreage on which to walk or ride bikes. This is a San Bernardino County park and the only payment method accepted when we visited was cash. There is an on-site host. Note that you must have proof of insurance on your rv, plus show the registration papers before you are allowed to register. We stayed here for two nights and would happily stay again. - rfarkle

We only overnighted here. It was a weekday, off season, and the place was pretty much empty. The site was very nice with lots of trees and shrubs and privacy. The RV sites are pretty small, though, so I wouldn't recommend it for big rigs. Even though we enjoyed the naturalness of the site, at $50 it was WAY overpriced in my opinion. - Pdxjoanne

Lake Silverwood has inherited the college type party atmosphere for summer. That means loud noise and crazy college kids running around like its spring break. Head to the full hookup sites if you want a quieter atmosphere. Hit the beach early and find a quiet spot there so you can avoid the numbskulls. - User3403

Another typical CA state park- a bit run down and dirty, tiny sites close together, packed on weekends. This is a wonderful mountain reservoir, clean and scenic. With CA-138 running along 3 sides of the canyon, don't expect any quiet. The road in (from I-15 to the west of the park), roads within, and sites are a bit tight for a big rig, but with care and skill can be managed. Friendly rangers. - Windjammer
