3 Parks near Lancaster, California
Mar 2015 - $20.00
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

My wife and I have stayed at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds RV Park several times in the past because of its location close to where our boys live in Lancaster. The park is large enough that reservations usually are not needed. It has no trees, grass, club houses, pools, pet areas (except for the desert across the street) it also has no laundry facilities or cable. It is a bare minimum city run park with no RV club discounts. It does however have large restroom and showers that are usually clean and in working order that are taken care of by a cleaning crew. The park is all asphalt and it has fairly wide spaces for pull thru's and back end parking. It has a great Verizon signal and easy for RV's of any size to maneuver. It is freeway close.
As for the cons. Read the park rules posted on the wall when you arrive and do the self serve check in and then just flush the rules out of your mind because there is no one who enforces these rules once you clear the front gates. While we know the park is located next to the Fairgrounds we do expect to hear loud speakers during the day if there is an event going on. You may hear a concert till 2am on the weekend. There is also an off road motocross track next door that you will hear loud motorcycles and a PA on Friday to Sunday from 8am to 4PM. We can deal with that but, the go carts, dirt bikes, motorized skateboards and dogs running lose in the park itself should not be expected at an RV park especially run by the city. There is one manager on site and she does nothing but look after her flowers at her RV and just collect the money from the box. If you call her on the list ph. # if will go to voice mail. She does nothing if you ask her in person to do her job as a manager and advise the violators to stop. I know from experience from my past profession that talking to people who ride these loud toys or let their dogs run loose that it only brings anger, animosity and retaliation even if you politely ask someone to stop. You have to keep one eye open so they don't vandalize your property. I have seen this happen to other nice people who just try to ask others to do the same. While I ride a Harley I don't start it until I am ready to leave and I don't make excessive noise to let the world know what I ride. Others don't get that you're not the only person in the world. One more reason why we left Calif.
This park is just conveniently close to our boys and that is why we stay here. If your looking for a really nice park in the Antelope Valley (Lancaster/Palmdale) area then you might want to check out parks in Acton. - SteelHorseRider

This spot is just an overnight concrete pad with full hookups. The bathrooms and showers are not deluxe and may not be very clean. There is no caretaker around so I really don't know if the place has Wi-Fi, I doubt it. We were surrounded by big rigs, carnival vans, permanents, and others looking for a one night stopover. The fairgrounds had Monster trucks but the noise stopped at 10:00 pm. It is very quiet and basic. - saturn7

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

We stay here every year when we come to Lancaster to visit with family. This is for Elk members and their guests only. They have lowered the price from $17 to $15 per night. We will stay here again when we come through Lancaster. The Elks is close to almost everything you could need or want. - kathiecarlson

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
