Dissapointed. If you've never been here before, I would recommend not arriving after dark. Payment for site is collected at the guard shack, prior to being let in. You'll be giving a map, informed which are the 50 amp, 30 amp, and which sites are privately owned. We drove around, with car in tow, looking for a site along with a few other RVers, mostly circling the 50 amp sites with no luck. Frustrated, I went back to the guard shack and told them to find me a site, or give me a refund, it was at this time I was informed that more than likely, no 50 amp are available, and I should probably go to the back end of the park where the 30 amp smaller sites are. Lots of trees, and lots of dead leaves on the ground. Sites are dirt with some pea gravel (not enough). The water canals are murky green. The heated pool was about 76 - 78 deg, we didn't last long, neither did other swimmers we saw. Train ride is available for 25 cents, weekends only, miniature golf available, we didn't see anyone playing. We won't return. - RV-luvin

Has a family lodge for the kids and a separate Adult Lodge for the seniors who like peace and quiet. Train ( miniature ) rides are offered on week ends. Lots of room to walk around the canals and grounds. Has two swimming pools, one for the families and one for adults only. Has an exercise room for adults. Free wi-fi at the lodges. The pay WiFi is very slow in the park. Here is a short stroll in the evening https://youtu.be/I25l2QewfDI. - Joe O

This campground is small but sweet. The lake access sites are great for smaller rigs. The level sites for big rigs are on the top of the campground. The views of the lake are terrific here. If you have a kayaks bring it. We had a good time with my sister’s kayak. The staff keep the campground clean. I saw fishing boats, water skiing boats & kayaks on the lake. The birding was good. We had a nice time with our friends camping at Canyon Lake. If we're invited back I would love to camp here again. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

This review will be primarily for the Temecula Valley Wine and Balloon Festival camping experience. It was around $430 for the weekend for a Water/Electric site; a little more for a full hookup site. That price includes 2 combo passes to the festival. I stayed at Campsite A which was right next to the festival main entrance. That was a great location! I tried getting a full hookup spot, but those sold out instantly. At least I was able to get electricity. For the festival they opened up a huge dry camp area in the dirt lot next to campsite A. I'm guessing there were about 300 sites marked off in the dirt. If you don't mind crowded, dusty, and loud dry camping this is for you. The biggest plus camping for the festival is you don't have to deal with the traffic getting out. I've heard it can take 1 - 2 hours to get out using the one lane road, especially on Saturday night.
Our biggest complaint was the dust. With dry dirt everywhere and occasional high winds, you get dirty. I imagine during a regular stay at the campgrounds it wouldn't be too bad, but with a crowded festival it was really bad. Other complaint was not enough portable bathrooms in the campsite. There was 1 nearby and after 1 day with a full campsite...lets just say I'm glad I don't have to sit.
I'm definitely doing it again next year. - Arash

This is a large campground on the eastern side of Temecula. You feel very much like you are in the country when staying here. The is a large lake, hills & mountains, and lots of very nice scenery here this spring. You can even see the distant snow on the higher mountains. I have also seen hot air balloons rising in the distance the last two mornings. There are a number of attractive wineries close by. Many of those places have restaurants. Most of these restaurants are closed at 4pm.
This is an ideal weekend for camping and the place is pretty full. But outside of the weekend you should be able to get in here without a reservation. This is a ways off the freeway though. And if you camp here it is an 8 mile drive to the grocery store, and restaurants open after 4pm. - RFCN2

This is always a popular place to camp for a few days for us as it is close to where we have our base. This is not an RV park but rather a camp ground. Many spaces are satellite friendly, spaces are quite level but on dirt with only selected sites that have grass nearby.
Good cell phone service and your personal hot spot on either Verizon or AT&T works very well. The campground also has wifi that you can pay for.
This is a very easy park for new RV'ers to practice their skills as there is a lot of room between sites and the dirt forgives mistakes that might be made!
Dog friendly and lots of room to walk fish, or even boat. No body contact with the lake is allowed, but there is a splash park that operates in the summer. There is a small store and gas pumps on the campground property .
Local area provides wine tasting, restaurants of all kinds, food shopping and fuel along with other stores. A very nice park, a bit rustic but a chance to feel you are a long way from the city while just being outside of a good sized city. This campground is well worth a visit!! - Old Detective

Price reflects monthly cost. I loved this place. Only reason it isn't a 10 is 30 amp. They will rewire pedestal to accept 50 amp connector, but it is still only 30 amp. That's a problem with space heater in December, we kept tripping the breaker when the AquaHot kicked on.
Very, very quiet. No junky sites whatsoever. No wifi at the site, had to go to clubhouse, but ATT data and phone worked fine. Cable tv included. Because we stayed a month, they put us in a vacant owners site that had to be 60x60', all gravel. Lots of walking trails within the park for us and the dogs. Everyone was very friendly. About 6 miles to decent shopping, 15 miles to everything you could imagine in Temecula. - bobcovey

Paid $22.50, accepting only cash or check. No credit cards. Nice park but only has 4 transient sites. Our site required wheels in the air to get level. The problem was no power and nobody in office because of the weekend. The voltage was way over the 132 volt limit so the Progressive Industries power management system would shut off to protect our RV. We dry camped. - BbTrombone

This is a senior park, with some pull-throughs for short-term stays and back-in lots for longer-term renting. The lots are a good size and some have sheds. There is a pond with ducks to enjoy! The clubhouse has a pool table and many books, videos and puzzles to use. There are nightly activities and weekly/monthly special events. The office and maintenance staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay here again! - salliemac

We came here from Lake Skinner Rec Park. We thought this was a nice park, for the one night that we stayed. It is mostly permanent residents, here but there is availability for overnight guests. We had 'lake' parking and it was nice, peaceful and quiet. Will return again. - awphull1

This is not a campground - this is a trailer park. 80% of the sites are used for full time guests which is fine but they really should tell people that. Our site was sandwiched between two full time families who fought all night (I thought we'd end up on Cops) and walked around half naked. We had no fire ring, no picnic table and the bathrooms were locked. Our neighbors dog used their deck as a bathroom which was eye level with our windows. We had to keep them closed and covered the entire time. The lake is green sludge that reeks. Maybe this is better in the Summer but our experience was horrid, we went home early and will never go back. - Charlalee

This is an interesting place to say the least. They have their own pond/lake thing. There are a lot of residents, a few vacation home people and then us overnighters. I have to admit that is the friendliest place around! Lots of nice folks, not too noisy. The roads around here are dirt, so don't expect the best accommodations if you are used to a more luxurious style. They can handle RV's of any size, and tents too, but like many parks, the spaces for the larger rigs are limited. There is no cable, no TV, no cell phone coverage and you are lucky if you can get radio inside your rig. There is Wi-Fi, but only if you take your laptop to the bar/office area. Bring a book! The lake is interesting. It is basically a few streams built up behind a dam. But I have to say that I find it “nice”. There is catch and release fishing, paddle boats, a swim area and an area to launch water balloons into the lake at your friends and strangers. There is also: a bar! OK, so it is not a FULL bar. In fact, all they sell is beer. Still, on a hot day in August, looking over the lake and having a cold one. - BBlast

Rate is the daily average based on a weekly special of $186. Very nice, well-maintained park mostly populated by winter snowbirds. Most sites are back-ins, fairly wide level gravel with concrete patio and asphalt spot to park the car. There are a couple of rows of long pull-throughs that appear to be used for short-termers and rallies. Hookups worked well, including cable and wi-fi. Everything well-maintained. Beautiful central recreation area with multiple pools and spas, very nice clubhouse, fitness center and laundry. Although the park is great, there is not a lot to do in Hemet. - Ray Z

Can't say enough about this park. If you can't find an activity to participate in you're a couch potato.
Park offers 3 swimming pools, 3 hot tubs, a full gym, pickle ball, chip and put area, numerous nearby golf courses, indoor shuffleboard. Lots of activities. Enough activities offered in snowbird season that you cannot do all that are offered daily. Water volleyball in 2 pools daily, water aerobics, instructor led workout programs, poker night, weekly patio parties. There are 1043 sites, enough for any RV rally. Vintage Antique RV show annually. Come join the fun. - Bobster43

Very nice park. Free and strong wi-fi. Good cable TV. Many spaces are mostly gravel, with a small cement patio area. I think there could be a lot less gravel and more cement! The pool area is spectacular - 3 beautiful pools. The only reason I gave them 9 stars and not 10 is that the trash facilities are inadquate. It's a hugh 600 space park and there's only 2 trash bins, one on the east side and one on the west. They come around and pick up the trash at your site once a week. REALLY - once a WEEK! Who only has trash once a week?!! We also had an ant problem and had to spread cleanser around the tires. They need to insectiside the spots when they empty and keep the bushes trimmed better. But the office was nice about coming out and spraying when I called them. The asst. manager was very nice and helpful. They also need to provide a table at the sites; there aren't any. The park has lots of activities during the season. However we were there in July and the activities were over. - Scimastr

This park is huge and right in the middle of an extensive retail area. Grocery shopping, fast food, movie theater all within short walking distance. There was a complimentary "Harvest Feast" the week of Thanksgiving that was catered, and pleasant. Lots of activities going on all the time: poker nights, shuffleboard, cribbage, craft night, etc. The new pickle ball courts are really nice. The pool is heated, and the hot tub is large, deep and covered -- enjoyable in any weather. The showers are large and clean, and the residents are friendly. There is a mix of short term, long term, and permanent tenants. Some of the spaces have been improved with park model style units and landscaping that looks professional. There are also some older rigs that look like they haven't been moved in a decade. Lots of snowbirds, some of which have been coming to this place for 15+ years. If we could have afforded it, we would have stayed through the entire winter. Sites are close together, but have paved patios and an extra parking space for your tow vehicle. Some sites have a storage shed available as well. We didn't pay for the Wi-Fi, but our Sprint coverage was excellent. - Fezzik_Mallard

I stayed here with a group. The park is older but they are working on it. They are currently converting back-to-back sites to pull-throughs. The sites are a bit close. Close to stores and restaurants. We will return. - TripleE

Note that the nightly rate reflects a monthly rate of $550 divided by 30, because there is no way to enter a monthly rate in the review. We stayed here for a month during our recent move from CA to OK. This is an older park, but it is well maintained. All sites have nice concrete patios and there lots of trees, providing for a pleasant environment. There are a number of full-time residents and folks from colder climates who winter here. The park is within walking distance of shopping and restaurants, making it very convenient. They provide free Time Warner digital cable with great TV reception, but free WiFi is only available in the club house. Since we were staying here for a month we subscribed to high speed Time Warner internet at our site for around $50, giving us pretty much all the technology in our trailer that we had at home. We would definitely stay here again. - The Herm

Here's the pros, electric works 50amp and 30 amp. Lots of sewer smells from vents and long term residents with old rigs scattered around the park! We stayed here 2 winters and probably won't be back! The pool decking is dilapidated and covering falling off! Men's bathroom has Black Mold all through the cabinets. When you take a shower, water fills up and you have to stand in dirty as drains are very slow. Asphalt in entire park is crumbling and you will constantly track it into your rig. Several RVers have had their bicycles stolen over a 4 month period, lots of homeless people outside on streets of Hemet. The spa pool is old and not very clean, overall not a great RV experience. Probably will never return as no improvements at all over a years time as we were told there would be. - seaguy

This park was supposed to get a major upgrade from the owner of the day but due to a legal issue the ownership changed. Resort was the name given by previous owner and referred to what the park was going to be redeveloped into. This didn't happen and the park is inhabited mainly by low income people. There are also thefts occurring and stories of drug dealing. The spaces are tight and the sites and roadways are run down. The manager is pleasant and helpful, but doesn't have a clue about what snowbirds and winter escapees are looking for in a resort. - Britcanuck
Aug 2015 - $40.00
NOT a resort! Almost nothing for activities, save for a puny bingo game on Wed. nights and an ice cream social (costs a buck, two for a root beer float) on Saturday. I realize it is summer, but what 'resort' doesn't have activities? The clubhouse has no air conditioning, RV spaces are tiny and close together, very few trees so no shade, mostly permanent residents, many old dilapidated units, several old mobiles located in park. Manager is pleasant enough, but assistant is an admitted pothead who is rude and complains constantly about how she doesn't have enough time to do all the work they demand from her. Although the facilities are clean, it is more a place that caters to low-income permanent residents who have nowhere else to go. They should be ashamed to call this place a resort. - Traveler112349

Small little fishing lake. I enjoyed this park. Had a good time. The park was easy to navigate. The spaces with hookups were easy to use. The over appearance was good. It's what you would expect from a small fishing lake. Everything I used worked fine. - frosty316
Dec 2014 - $35.00
Overall a fair place to camp or rest for a couple of days or so, if you can become accustomed to the swarms of flies and the smell of the dairy farm close by. I don't believe that the lake(s) have been stocked for fishing in a long time. The manager was friendly and courteous enough to make it all worthwhile for a short period of time anyway. But once again, similar to the situation at "Diamond Valley" park--There are
predominantly long-term or "permanent" residents here that have allowed the general maintenance & appearance of the park to slowly degrade to the point of being falsely Identified as a "shantytown". - Mark Yamahammer

Rate is Passport America. This is an older place that is primarily a fishing park. The is a lot of dirt and very little grass. Showers are pay for use. Lot of full time residents. - Tampajohn

Stayed 3 weeks after selling our home of 23 years nearby. Place is very clean and well maintained. A mix of RVs, park models, motel rooms, cabins and even a mobile home or three. Many persons seemed to be there as residents including the motel guests. All good though as far as rowdiness (none). Park overlooks Lake Elsinore. We are considering spending a month or more next winter. - Cochise

Rate was for one full week. Website showed a rate of $180 per week when reservation was made, but when we arrived, we were told that the rate had been raised to $200/week and no adjustment would or could be made. All spaces were gravel and level, tv service worked well (although it was clear that problems were often experienced with the cable system based upon comments from the staff), and the newly upgraded wifi was only adequate, often slow and would operate sporadically. Many full time, old rigs on site, but no problems were experienced. Pool was clean, although not heated, so too cold to use. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and allowed us to stay in a "group area", which was relatively vacant. Not sure that we would stay here again, though there is not much to pick from in the area. - Rick & Pam

This is by far one of the very best RV parks we have ever stayed in. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The sites are level and large. We were given the choice of where we wanted to park. There were lots of empty spaces to choose from. There was some permanent RVer's but they all were very friendly and helpful. We have no problems. The pool is awesome, clean and well cared for. The laundry is a nice size and very reasonable $1.25 to wash or dry. There was a freak wind storm while we were here and it tore out awning, so we had to leave early for repairs and while we could not get a refund for the 3 days we had paid for we were told if we came back we could stay free for those 3 days. We think that is a great deal! We will be back and hopefully get to stay longer. Loved this place. - kam
