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. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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." We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

DWRV is a large facility provided primarily for extended stay guests. Around 25 of the 150+ sites are designated pull-thru's for overnight & weekly guests. Many of these are the dreaded side-by-side configuration, but the sites so long, that the design's deficiencies are minimized. The park was founded in 1988. As such, the sites, narrow gravel pads with a very nice concrete patio, reflect the days before slides. Were we staying but a single night in the pull-thru's, I would not open the slides. The wonderful ladies in the office have been very accommodating in working with us to find sites that will accommodate the coaches of today for our multi-day visits. This quiet park has a superb location just off I-15 very close to where 395 intersects it. It is a great place to wait out weather conditions, especially the wind, that RV'ers best avoid traveling either down Cajon Pass or in the local deserts. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pull thru site was long but not level. Website advertises free cable but found out upon arrival that it is Not available for short stays. We could only get a few channels with our antenna. No dog park but a small grassy area to walk your dog. Mostly long term RV in park. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here once before and were not planning to come back. We had ended up doing exactly what a recent reviewer warned about. Their address and "directions" will take you past their place, and you'll end up needing to unhook your toad and do a U-turn. Off to a bad start, as you might say. But there's really nowhere else to stay in this area! So we came back, at least forewarned about turning right onto Cataba this time! Once you get past the wrong directions, it's an OK place. Some traffic noise we will use our fan to cancel out. But I have to say that their claim to have cable is false! They only "have cable" if you have a cable box, etc. We were able to get satellite fine, but I wanted to get PBS for some special programs, and wouldn't you know it - no PBS on air channels!!! Overall, not a big deal. But they advertised cable - and essentially don't have it! We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate cited was the out-the-door rate. Nightly and weekly sites are kept separate from the monthly residents. Nightly and weekly sites are all pull-throughs, gravel and some with shade trees. Pool and spa areas were well kept and enjoyable. Pool is seasonal (not heated). Restrooms and laundry appeared clean to me. Park is gated and felt secured. Office personal were friendly. Reservations didn't seem to be necessary unless there's a particular site wanted. Recommend parking your RV in the front entrance, and take a walk to the sites and choose a few, many are unleveled and some are more desirable than others. If arriving on a Sunday, office closes at 2 PM. We would stay here again. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park has nice wide streets and flat pull-thrus. The trees are starting to get a little wide. We were given Lot P-22 and could not open one of our slides because of the tree. I was courteously and quickly given Lot P-21 which gave us plenty of room. Electrical boxes look very old; however, 50 amp service is good. If you are a geocacher, this is the perfect jumping off point to do all the incredible geo-art north of here. Be aware that the entrance to the park is not on Main St. You must turn onto Cataba Rd to turn in or you will be making a U-turn. When you depart with your rig you may want to go back the way you came in so that you don't have to make the left turn out through the gate. The price is a great value. We will definitely return.

We were going to give a 10 until we saw the bathrooms & showers. Eeew! Dirty floors, empty of TP. Plus a comical warning about diarrhea sufferers not using the pool and spa. They should not claim "private showers," as the main showers had no privacy (no change area; stepped out of curtained shower pan directly into the communal sink area). Heard noise on I-15, but not too loud--we ran a fan on low for white noise. Pluses: wonderful check-in ladies, clean roads & sites, and a few shady spots for an overnight. Now if they would just hire someone to clean those bathrooms. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate based on weekly rate. This is an OK place to stop for a night or two. The sites are long and level. All of the hook-ups worked properly. The sites are all gravel with almost no grass areas; consequently, there is a lot of dust. Additionally, the bathrooms were not cleaned at all during our one week stay and they were not clean. A problem that was reported to the office was accepted very poorly and never corrected (no hand towels in the Men's bathroom). We would stay here again for a night, but no longer.

Rate is PPA. Nice park with easy access. Less than a mile from Target and Walmart, In-and-Out Burger, fuel, etc. Many permanent residents toward the back of the park but all units well kept. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff! Nice place,large RV spots and fair monthly rate. Stayed here for several months while on a traveling job with my husband. Overall we liked this RV park and felt safe . My only complaint would have to be how high our electric bill was every month. We travel full time for my husbands job and in the 10 yrs of doing so never had a bill over $80 power bill. For this park ranged between $150-220. In my opinion something was wrong with electric in my spot. Staff was nice and put in a new meter for me and that made the power bill even higher. Nice place, but if you are going to be a monthly beware of your power bill. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
