9 Parks near Lancaster, California
Oct 2016 - $25.00
I stay here on a sporadic schedule whenever I visit family. It's always had spaces available. However, I believe the park closes during their state fair in August. The spaces are easy access and wide. I parked my truck and trailer plus had adequate room to park a borrowed vehicle next to my trailer during my stay. The park and restrooms/showers are quite clean and spacious. However the shower curtains were tattered and kinda moldy. The park is a mix of travelers and longer term residents. All were quiet and friendly. While I was there the fairgrounds had a large swap meet one weekend and a rodeo another weekend. Neither event created excess noise or traffic.
Wi fi is available but was marginal at best. There is no cable which is something that is sorely needed, as over the air TV reception was terrible.
This park is a good place to use as a base if you have other things to do. I noticed the park host are not always around during the day so you have to self register. The problem with that I witnessed is if you happen to leave without leaving something to "mark" your site and someone else come in and sets up in your spot, you're gonna have headache to straighten things out.
One other thing- don't leave your awnings open unattended as the winds can pick up suddenly and usually every afternoon. - AV-Ed

This is a concrete lot on the north side of the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds with full hookups and 50 amp power for $25/night. We stayed here one night as a stopover on a trip. There are no services here other than hookups. The rv slots are painted lines on the ground.
If you are attending an event at the Fairgrounds, it is an ideal location. If there is no fairgrounds event, as for our night, this camp is quiet and isolated.
There were many longer term residents during our stay, working on the new solar panel farms outside of town according to our neighbor.
The camping slots are wide and easy to access. The power voltage was consistent as the water pressure. Be sure to check in with the RV park manager since they do take reservations. That wasn't clear to us when we used the self service check-in. We later saw it in their printed rules.
We didn't use the bathrooms or showers as we stayed in our unit. There was a consistent 20 knot west wind all night long so nobody was using awnings.
Basic services for a reasonable price. - Gaucho Mac

This is a great place for what it is - a paved parking lot in the Mojave Desert. Given that it is in Lancaster and most people don't have any reason to come to Lancaster, it is a very good place to stay for a few nights depending on your reason for being in the area.
The bathrooms are extremely clean - free showers - full hookups - very cheap rate $20 a night. It is very clean and quiet - except you can hear the freeway because in the desert sound travels a long ways.
The WiFi is very good and free. The manager is very nice. If you want to pay by credit card you have to wait until she is around - but that was no big deal. Very few channels for TV on the antenna. Satellite signal very good.
Very large level sites - with both pull through and back in. Any size rig could stay here. - NiMo

Note: For Elks member use only. This is an older Elks lodge, but overall their RV park is nothing fancy but serviceable. There are approximately 21 pull-through sites, most of which should be able to accommodate a total length of about 60 feet. I think 14 of the pull-through sites have concrete pads to park on, with the rest of the RV park being gravel. Most of the pull-throughs have bi-directional hookups (pull in either way). In addition to the pull-through sites, there are plenty of back-in and parallel parking sites. I can't imagine this park ever being completely full. There are no full-hookup sites but a sewer dump is located on site. During our stay the voltage was good and water pressure was 80 psi. Both Verizon and AT&T had weak but usable LTE signals. Upon arrival, register with the friendly and helpful campground host, who's site is marked. We'll definitely stay here again. - Gyropilot

This is the second time I have stayed here. I guess I forgot how bad it was. 30 amp only. Gravel. Ruts. Poorly maintained. Have to drive over the curb to get into the parking lot. And $20 per night now. I will stay at the fairgrounds in the future where I have stayed in the past. - bradydane2009

No frills is a good way to describe this place. The sites are reasonably sized and can easily accommodate the largest rigs. The location is OK for a stopover but it's not near anything interesting. The 30 amp at our pedestal (#39) did not work, but since we didn't need AC we just used the 20 amp circuit. The wifi and cable TV didn't work. The dump station was closed for some concrete repair. We would come here again for an overnight stopover. - User3589

Overall, this is a nice no-frills campground located behind the Elks lodge, which is on a busy avenue. We stayed over in the dry camping area (the gravel parking area just west of the lodge) for one night without any hookups, so I can't comment on the quality of them. Train traffic can be heard off in the distance, and during the day, road noise from the street in front of the lodge. Current suggested donations are $8 for dry camping and $18 for the partial hookups. There's lots of room to maneuver big rigs and plenty if space to walk your pets. The camp host was friendly, as we're all the Elk members we met in the lodge. They made us feel like family. We'll definitely stay here again when passing through or when visiting the area longer. - Gyropilot

Stayed here on the overflow sites for three nights. Full park due to military base construction workers. Full price is 17., overflow is 5. Used the restrooms, laundry, day room, dump station and was able to refill water tanks. - washingtoncolorado

We stayed at the campground for a week prior to Christmas. There were plenty of sites available at that time. Sites are relatively level, only requiring a couple of blocks. There is a check in board at the entrance of the park where you place your money in the locked box and registration card on the back of the board. I had contact with the camp host prior to our arrival checking on availability however never saw him during our stay. The Wi-Fi was down when we got there and it took about four days before we got it back up. There is no cable and no TV signal. There was a Direct TV in the lounge however that was down as well throughout our stay. BX, commissary, and service station were open except for Christmas. Most other base functions to include the club were down. A decent place to stay. - ownedafew

The base is very easy to get to from Hwy 58. You will go under a train trestle just off of Hwy 58, the height sign says its 14’. The park is very clean and the camp host very welcoming. You share the hook-up area with the neighboring site which makes the driver’s side slide outs of your RV inches from your neighbors. We used 2 electrical cords due to the length from the back of our rig to the electrical box. There are 2 roads inside the park, a perimeter road and an interior ring so rigs can pull in from either direction. Parking of your TV or toad should NOT protrude onto the perimeter/interior roadway. There was an individual in a Class A who parked his toad in front of his rig on the interior road, while we were there, which impeded our ability to stay on the roadway. We enjoyed our stay and will return. - MAFLAF

Having read one of the other reviews, I thought this park can't possibly be that bad. Guess what: it is! The sites themselves have no shading or landscaping. Our electricity went off twice during our stay. The showers are abhorrent: literally an inch deep in crane flies and other bugs in the toilets and showers. We stayed only because we had forgotten about the July 4th holiday and every other place close by was full. When you go into the office to complain, they shrug their shoulders, or as one staffer said to me, "Lady, we make minimum wage. We've been through four owners in three years and there's not much we can do about anything." If you can't find another park, look for the nearest Wal-Mart. - Puglady

We stayed here last year, and it was really nice. It's a different story now. The pool & spa were closed M-Th (even though the temp was in the 90's), the game room was closed due to vandalism (with no date set for re-opening), the laundry room floor had a carpet of dead insects on it (disgusting), weeds and trash are all around, and large rain-made gouges in the dirt made for an uneven RV pad. Plus, the rates have gone up $20.00 a night from our last stay! The good things: the Pro Shop clerk was EXTREMELY helpful and nice, and the Wi-Fi was adequate. The only reason we'll stay here again is that it's close to our relatives and friends. - OTR again

Since the last review this place is on the upswing. There is a lot of work being done here. I was told someone else took over the resort. We saw at least 30 fairly new golf carts. There is a lot of work ongoing. They are planting trees, putting in large drainage swells and grading etc. This park will be a 9 or 10 when complete. There is a new laundry and a club house. The small pond is filled, so you can use the paddle boats. We were there for 5 days and 2 were windy. But this is canyons and desert and is very common all over southern CA. There is Wi-Fi in the clubhouse. Our Verizon cell phone was very very week and our air card just worked. The hot tub and lap pool were heated. - BLT101

Very well run RV park that is always clean. It is situated on a steep hill but each space is leveled out very well. We had to disconnect our tow, to fit it in on the front. (42 ft Motorcoach) We had no work navigating in the park with our coach. One thing: when checking in, there's a slight hill you have to stop on and I worry about stopping on the slope, so we parked out on the main approach road and made the short walk up the hill to registration. You are charged $25 for a gate entry card, so you have to make sure you return it for a refund of your deposit. This park is close to the Metrolink Station at Vincent Grade, where you can take a train all the way to downtown LA, with connections everywhere. Soledad Canyon, further to the West, suffered a lot of fire damage in this year's fire. There are no picnic tables, fire rings and limited room to set up outside. - elduque

Friendly staff that helped us very well making a plan to visit LA and rent a car in Palmdale. Beautiful swimming pool and environment. Showers are clean and with enough room. Not really much shade. Good working wifi. Possibility to get propane. - Peters 2016

This is an okay park for an overnighter. Sites are paved and terraced, reasonably level, but no room between for even a chair. Staff is friendly. Our site was a tight fit with our toad, but we managed, and there is overflow parking. Many full-timers, but not an issue. Restrooms were good, clean with hot water and good pressure. There is a pool and hot tub, but pool isn't heated. Wifi was okay. Good access from CA 14. - mlbw

Huge park! I rode my bicycle for 10 miles, rarely on the same road twice, and never left the campground! One of the Rangers thinks it's the largest campground in the Thousand Trails network. In the winter, fewer than half the campsite are occupied. I'm told that they are often full on weekends in the summer. There are several restaurants, an Ace Hardware store, and a few small grocery stores nearby. There are no Walmarts or other large stores anywhere nearby. - Paripatetic One

Enjoyed our stay here. Verizon service was good. You only get 15 minutes of free Wi-Fi a day though. Need to pay if you want more. You can get the 15 minutes on each device though. Verizon service is best in "N" section up on the hill and fills up faster than the other sections. "B" section has much more shade but you are close to the train tracks. Commuter train throughout the day and goes buy quickly. Freight train at 2 AM takes a little getting used to. 50 AMP sites are scattered throughout the park. Look for new electrical boxes to identify the 50 AMP sites. - jprisbe

The park was great, the pool was very clean. Everywhere was easy to get to. Only thing we did not like about the park, is that there was terrible cellphone signal. - Just Passing through 2015

The Acton area is beautiful, but for the price I was hoping for more from this park. Facilities are clean but dated, my site was right up against a big cottonwood tree and the roots made it not very level. Staff wasn't very good about enforcing the rules, saw dogs off leash and the like. For those that need to stay connected, Verizon signal was pretty much non-existent, but at least the WiFi was usable. - BeckyIO

Easy to get to. Office staff friendly. Well laid out. Park is older with smaller spaces especially if you have a slide-out.
Park store had no product except beer & ice cream - disappointing as I needed butter!
Train run next to park at all hours of day & night.
Every space had leaking water faucet, reported but nothing done.
Park has very bad electrical system (low of 90 VAC to a high of 134 VAC). Caused wiring damage to my rig. Others had system protection and it shut them down. We reported this to the park and they did nothing. I reported this to KOA corporate and they referred me back to the park saying it was franchised, talk to the park! No help there, as far as I know the park has done nothing to repair their bad electrical system.
I was part of a 20 coach group (Good Sam) all motorhomes. Over priced for its age and condition and facilities. Large shady trees blocked satellite TV for some - request space without shade tree if you use satellite TV. - User2967

Strictly a place to stay, overnight. Located off the Antelope Valley Freeway (14) on Soledad Canyon Road (exit 11) the park is about 6 miles off the freeway, so it in an out of the way location. Gravel, and a few shade trees, level sites. Bathrooms and showers were spotless when we were here. No TV reception at all! Must have a satellite dish. The WiFi (Tengo Internet) is open and doesn't require a password, but is a slow as can be, and very spotty. Cell service for AT&T was non existent as well as Verizon (no signal) Sprint phone was able to dial out ok. Heavy canyon winds make for a dusty experience, plus the LA Metrolink trains that come through every 25 minutes can make for an interesting stay. There are some permanent residents here as well, that are co-mingled with the regular clientele. You can hear Lions roar at night that come from Tippi Hedren's house (Shambala), so don't be alarmed. They're caged and it's safe. Like I said at the beginning of this review, strictly a place to overnight, and it would be an out of the way over night. - DayTripper2015

Web site states 50 sites, 90% are permanent residents. Sites are very close together, not level and the wind is so bad here your rig shakes all night long. There is No where for dogs and when I tried to walk my 10 pound dog, the manager came out of his rig and told me to leave the property to let my dog pee. We did, but I would never stay here again. Also, no internet code was provided for their secure connection. - Thelma3

Not much to choose from in these parts. This is an older park with about 75% of the sites occupied by permanent residents. They were a mix of some down and out to working people to retirees trying to make that SS check feed and house them. We didn't have any trouble with anyone. Everybody kept to themselves. Everything worked as it should and even though the park is situated along side the Spaceport and near a rail yard the noise wasn't bad. I would stay here again. - JC69

Pulled into this "park", looked around at the lack of amenities, shade, trees, etc. The only thing there appeared to be an abundance of was blowing sand and wind. The few units in the "park" appeared to have been there for a very extended time. Needless to say we did not stay. - sandstorm
