We have stayed at this park before, so we knew that there were trains. However, this time there were many more trains than before. Also currently the park is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and to camp on those days requires a seven or 14 day reservation. Park gates are locked at 4 PM. Reservations are advised. We would definitely call ahead to be sure of closure days and extra fee days. The charge for camping has gone up considerably. Best to choose a site in the front row by the lake because they are farther from the train tracks. Not many other choices in this area. - Ken and Lee

Previous reviews are correct about the frequency of trains passing in close proximity to the pull-through sites. However, the back-in sites along the lake are far enough away that the noise was not obnoxious to us, especially since they pass quickly and do not blow their whistles. Of course, we also live in a railroad town, so are quite accustomed to trains. The check-in staff were very pleasant, the sites well-spaced, with low usage on a Sunday. We had no difficulty backing in our 32 ft. trailer. There are lots of trees, but we easily obtained a satellite signal. AT&T phone & data service worked well. We'd have no hesitancy to return here. - BJ Snowbird

Weird place in that it has both significant good and bad things about it. The good: The valley it’s located in is quite nice, especially considering everything else around it. There’s horseback riding available there (within a healthy walking distance anyway). The lateral space in between each site is quite nice and if you’re backed in to one row of sites you have a wide grass field between you and the folks in the row uphill from you. The staff was visible at times but was not intrusive. The drives and the pads are asphalt. Verizon cell coverage was max bars here. The bad: Located a long way from I-15 i.e. 6-7 miles, so this isn’t a good OVN location in my opinion. The layout of the site driveways are all wrong in that the angle of them in relation to your neighbors across from you is way too sharp. If it were not for the fact my neighbor had parked his tow vehicle somewhere else I wouldn’t have been able to back into my site without spending significant time doing multiple ‘pull-ups’. No cable & no Wi-Fi for the price they charge is a bit out of line. The ‘facilities’ are terrible; run-down old school park bathrooms/showers with accompanying damage, not one of us would use them. The ‘Lake’ has been dry for a couple of years as I’m told (storm damage to dam) talk is there’s no plan on fixing the dam. Park closes early and if you want back in you have to unlock a paddle-locked swing gate (not easy when it’s dark outside), which is cumbersome and inconvenient. Finally, multiple freight trains running 24/7 within a stone’s throw of the sites. I would go back here but only because it’s a good centralized location for us to link up with friends whom live in the L.A. area. This place has crazy potential, but I guess when the county runs something like this there’s not much chance it will reach anywhere near the level it could be at if given to a private concern with adequate money to run/maintain/develop it. - blomquir

The staff at this park are very friendly and welcoming. We had a spacious site with full hook-ups. It's true, there was no grass, but this is the desert and lots of desert campgrounds don't have grass, so it wasn't a negative for us. There are some long-term residents, but the ones at our end of the campground kept there sites clean and they didn't have a lot of junk on their sites. My husband did see one campsite of a long-term resident that needed to be cleaned up, but it was behind a fence, so it wasn't obvious. Still, this camper needs to be told to clean up or move on. The rest of the campsites were neat and orderly. The highway noise died down at night and we didn't hear a train, so that wasn't a problem for us. We would stay here again if in the area. - Bobbi1948

An overnight stay. We were placed in a site between an old motor home and huge tree, barely able to open both slide outs. The group in the motor home were up till 1 am making a bunch of noise and their "children" were running wild 'till 1 am. That's when I turned on the LED porch lights. There were tons of open sites, yet we were placed in this site next to night owls. Next to I-15 and railroad tracks. Didn't hear the trains and slightly heard I-15. The pad was dirt and the roads needed much improvement. Just OK for one night but would not stay longer. Not a good value and would not do it again. - SD75mac

The $36 rate including tax got us a bare bones pull-through site with water & electricity only! A little overpriced for the facility. They did have a lot of shade trees which was nice. However they are located just off of I-15 and the highway noise was very noticeable as well as train noise. They did have a small pool, however it wasn't heated. - Michael Kibler

We boondocked 2 nights on Memorial Day weekend in our travel trailer.
Table Mountain Campground was very scenic and beautiful. There are large pine trees, hiking / biking trails, views and wildlife. We saw squirrels, many types of birds and deer. Layered clothing is a must as the mornings can be cold then mid-day warms up a bit.
The campground host/ranger was super nice and helpful. We were stuck in Labor Day traffic up through the Cajon Pass and arrived late in the evening as a result. It was dark and cold by the time we got there, but the host came right out to meet us, then ushered us into our campsite, helped us back in and level out (our pad was a little steep). He came back to check on us the next day to see how we were doing and to make sure we had everything we needed. Though we didn't participate, he told us the campgrounds screen family movies in the outdoor amphitheatre on the weekends.
Our campsite was primitive, but just gorgeous! There are sites with full hookups in another loop of the campground, but the pads are closer together and the sites are not as pretty. The pit toilets were relatively clean and the potable water spigot wasn't too far away from us.
We had a reservation for our site, but there are some primitive campsites set aside for first-come basis.
During our walks of the campgrounds, we did take note that alot of the pads were not too level.
We will definitely return to visit this campground again! - ftrrvr_684

We stayed here briefly on our very first trip with a new (to us) Class A motorhome. When we arrived, we needed the assistance of the Camp Host to change sites because ours was as steep as a playground slide, and we couldn't get level despite blocks and boards. No one was available, nor was there a sign saying when s/he would return. Perhaps because of this, the noise went on well after 11 p.m. Even worse, when we left the next day, large untrimmed branches overhanging the road left broad, deep scratches in the side of our coach. This is very traumatic when it's your first trip with a new toy! Class A motorhomes -- beware! Avoid this campground! - Doberpug

Rate reflects the weekly rate. Adelanto is a rough little town. I don't recommend doing too much wandering around the town itself. However, Adelanto RV park is clean, well-kept, and a great value compared to the other RV parks within a hour's drive. We used this is our homebase to explore Joshua Tree Nat'l Park and the So Cal beach -- not really that close, both were FULL daytrips. - JPen365

Off-season allows for lots of spaces. the staff even led us into our pull-through. Overall it was a one night stopover. We have stayed here a number of times and never had any problems. There is an off-leash open desert, accessible from a back gate, that was great for our dog. - zen_letitbe

We pulled into the center section of the park which is just a huge bare gravel lot, but the spacing was nice. Stayed for 1 night. Power, sewer, water utilities worked fine. If they had wifi & cable we didn't use it. Our internet hotspot worked fine. It is close to an airplane facility, but we never heard any air traffic during the night. It was quiet at night until about 5:30am when there began to be a lot of traffic noise along the west side of the park. Park is in a rural area and fenced in except for the entrance. We would stay there again if we ever were in the area again. The staff was pleasant to deal with. - Arlen

Park is clean and quiet even with permanent and long term quests. Security gate is closed at night. Facility has pool, hot tub, pool table room, library and club room. Club room only appears to be open to rv clubs. Restroom/showers are minimal. Two showers, sink and toilet. Wifi is through Tangonet. Slow most of time. No cable and very limited access to channels. Some sites have trees so rv's need to be really careful when pulling in and out. Saw Fifth Wheel scrape roof and tear off vent cover. Sites also have metal poles by outlets. Need to careful when opening slides. - MHexcursions

This is only an OK overnight stop RV resort. It does not have WiFi, no cable (and no channels over the air) and no table or BBQ pit. Just a site, that was also not level. If you just want a place to stop on your way to Southern California, it would work. But that is about all. - RVpartyanimal

Nice park, mostly gravel sites, some concrete patios. Our site wasn't level but doable. Not much shade in March but will be later in the year. Allergy season so didn't try the facilities, just watched the pollen fly. A convenient stop, far enough from the highway to be quiet. - Go often

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

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

A beautiful location up in the mountains, but not for the faint-hearted or for vehicles prone to overheating. The drive entails 16 miles up a switchback road, precipitous drop-offs on one side. I drive a 40-foot rig, and some of the hairpin turns meant using both lanes!
Once there, the place is isolated, tranquil, beautiful. Our wooded campsite was isolated enough that we didn't see anybody except the park ranger soon after we arrived. Shower house was an easy 1/4 mile walk, nice hot showers, spacious shower stalls, everything clean.
Apart from the drive there, the only 2 negatives were that my GPS tried to take me in the back way, through a footpath (not the park's fault, but ended in a narrow cul-de-sac), then when we left, no exit signs! We were driving round loops not designed for a 40-foot RV for about 15 minutes till we found the camp host who gave us directions out. - RV-Roamer

We have stayed at this forested campground years ago and decided to come back for a visit. Our site was sloped quite a bit from back to front, which caused the front wheels of our MH to be off of the ground. The trees were very close and our front door opened between two trees, which made it kind of an obstacle course getting in and out of the door. All of the usable space was behind the rig. The 50 amp service worked well, and there was a water faucet close enough to the rig so I could get water at the site using about 75' of water hose. The big negative for me was the addition of the new "pay dump station" at the front entry. The price of the park was pricey in itself for the lack of full hook ups, but the new dump station charges a $10 per dump fee whether you are staying in the park or not. I stayed 5 days in the park, and brought a gray water tote to allow for the extended stay. I was shocked by $10 per use fee for registered campers. $2 to $3 would have been reasonable, but $10 is just ripping off the public. In my opinion, these unreasonably high fees will just encourage campers to illegally dump there gray water on the ground. I will not stay here again just because of the dump fee. - SargeW

This is a nice quiet campground nestled in the woods. All of the RV spaces are paved. However, they are not level. Our space was close to level side-to-side, but the tongue on the front of our trailer was almost on the ground to get it level front to back. There was not too much level ground even near the picnic table. Inconvenient, but not terrible. We still managed to enjoy the outdoors, and not all of the spaces were like that. The facility is well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is ample space between the sites, and the surrounding trees make each space seem very secluded. We had a spot with an electric hookup and there was water nearby. They also have a dump station at the checkout. Overall, we liked this place and we'll be back. Next time bringing more leveling blocks. - Linerider

This park is small and not all that nice for the area it is in. The spaces are not nearly the size that the web site states. Our site was supposed to be 45' and it was only about 20. We have a 37' 5th wheel and cold not fit into any of the spots. There is not much shade. We left without staying. - R&S

Okay, here is the 411 on this campground. First let me say the good. It was absolutely beautiful. The trees are huge. The air is clean. The camp host was the friendliest we have ever experienced. All of the sites are spread out, so it is nice and quiet. They allowed fires and they have bathrooms (no showers). In the actually town Green Valley which is about 1 mile from the campground, is a little lake. We rented a row boat and a paddle boat. They have a pay beach for swimming and picnics. The fishing there is great. They stocked it the day before we got there. Now the bad. We did not fit into our site #8. According to "Reserveamerica" we did, and our site was considered an RV site. Luckily they had 2 more sites to choose from. We tried site 24 and after 2 attempts decided to try site 25. No joke we tried 6 times. The camp host moved a wooden barrier for us and we finally made it in. I think we both have permanent sweat stains. This CG is not for anyone over 24 feet. According to the host, it was originally set up for tents only and now they let RV and TT in, but she said she has to turn people way because the internet is wrong on the site lengths. We would definitely recommend this campground, if you fit. - seeshell

This is an OK spot to stay if you need to be around the Northeast corner of the LA area. An interesting drive from I-5, one might think to be lost, but it shows up on the Garmin. It is not fancy, old, lots of permanent sites. It is a little tight to get in and out of, but cheap. - mebehr

Has about 25 sites with cable and full hookups. The rest are water and electric. Has a dump station. There are lots of shade trees. Its a very pretty setting. Manager is hard to find. - Julianne
