Excellent value for TT member. Nice amenities, helpful staff. A bit of the campsites and long-term sites were not pleasant to look at. Minivan with 4 flat tires on site, some beat up campers that didn't look like they run. But overall it was a good experience and we will stay here again.

Stayed as guests of friends who have a membership. The GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY ! The GOOD-electricity was steady and good, sites were fairly level. Sites are generously sized. The BAD- got to the park and was told to 'drive around until you find a spot you like, then come back and tell us the site number'. When you have a group camping you'd like to stay together. Many 'open' sites had signs saying 'This site leased to a member, do not camp here'. Apparently there are quite a few folks that live there on a permanent basis. They have their own golf carts that they zip around in. The UGLY- quite a number of places where it looks like a homeless encampment or worse.
We plan NOT to stay there again. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
Temecula is nearby. Great 'Old Town' for browsing and shopping. There also is Temecula Valley with an abundance of wine tasting opportunities.

This is a nice park, renovations were in progress to update sites to 50 amp services. The only drawback would be there isn't much locally to do. The park does provide some amenities to compensate but it does offer a nicely stocked lakes/canals. Adult pool area and two other pools. And it is nicely maintained We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.Undo

The dairy is gone! The flies are already reducing and the smell, too. This was the main drawback to this park. They will have many 50 Amp sites in the next few months which will certainly help in the summer. A great family park. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Loved this park. Lots to do, Grill on site. Adult Pool and spa and family pool and spa, very fun miniature golf course. Fishing and many types of ducks, birds and geese. The only downfall is its right next door to a dairy farm and when the wind blows in the wrong direction the smell is very bad. When the wind doesn't blow at all the flies are terrible. We are members of TT so we stayed here for free. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Price reflects a TT membership. This is a typical Thousand Trails park. Not the best. Not the worst. They are currently upgrading parts of the park to 50 amp, but there will be a $5 up charge to use it. I can tell by other reviews that this park may be great at times and unbearable at others. The reason is the dairy farm near by. While we were here, the wind was blowing in the right direction and we had no smell and no problem with flies. I'm guessing that at another time of year, it could definitely be a problem as it is discussed in other reviews. We spent 4 days here. We had spot #560 which backed up to a nice view in the distance of the hills and horse pastures. Sites appeared to be good sized. Ours certainly was. Great 30 amp service. Our DirecTV came in fine and our Millenicom Mi-Fi had a strong signal. We did not use any of the facilities (showers, pool, club house, putt putt golf) but did check them out. All were clean and well maintained. The adult pool and hot tub looked great. I stuck my toes in and the water was very comfortable. Relatives had warned us about choosing a site near the water due to the bird poo and some of the birds which nest in the trees. I would keep that in mind, but it did not appear to be a big problem as we walked around the park. Staff was great. We would came here again - the price is right for us. If the wind was blowing in the other direction, we would move on. My rating reflects my experiences for this visit. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Nice Thousand Trails (member rate cited). No 50 amp yet. They say it is coming. Good amenities and store for supplies. Pretty far away from most attractions. One hint that I wish I had known. Do NOT park under a tree. There are many LARGE birds that roost in them and they will completely cover RV or cars in poop! We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Well, there's the already mentioned dairy farm abounding the property, but the turkey (or chicken) farm is deserted. Still there's the noxious methane and cattle smell when the wind is right, and also the unbelievable dust from the development of homesites behind and beside the dairy property. The name, Wilderness Lakes, gives a false impression, since it's no longer a wilderness and there are no lakes. There are canals that run through one section of the park, but no lakes. You'll really have to like fowl, to spend any time here. And goose poop. Lots of it. If your site backs up to a canal, you may find that you can't get out your door because of all the waterfowl congregated around your rig. People put food out for them and they expect it. No matter where you park, you'll have geese wandering through your site. Oh, yes, the flies. Have a swatter handy. The best part of this park is the convenience to shopping and restaurants, the pleasant staff and the friendly people who camp here. Also, the annual sites are well maintained, unlike some other California parks. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Great staff: could not have been any nicer. Just hold your nose when the winds blows from the dairy. Stayed 2 weeks. They were helpful. Got a kick out of the wildlife around: ducks, geese, and five different types of other birds. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Great staff. Spent 14 days on 1000 Trails membership. Park was near full and manager managed to fit me in for the balance of the month @ $17.00 day. Try and stay in West end of park away from dairy and turkey farms nearby. Park was very clean, but in need of upgrading. Good 30 amp power. Some 50 amp power coming soon @ $5.00 day upcharge.

We stay here frequently. Paved roads and dirt sites. Most sites are very wide, lots with shade but plenty with clear skies for Sat. Lots back onto the narrow canals but many in the back are away from the geese and most of the flies. Nice pools with separate Adult except in the winter. Separate Adult lodge with Free WiFi, TV room, puzzle room, pool tables, and card room. Small well outfitted fitness room. Pickle ball courts. 50 amp sites coming. Prevailing wind keeps most of Dairy odor away so it is really just the flies and they are lessened if you go in the Southwest corner.

A Thousand Trails membership Park.....we enjoyed our week long stay at this location. We had site #53(on the canal) which provided shade for most of the day. 30 amp power, water and sewer all worked well. Verizon service good also. As others have said, the flies can be bothersome and you do, at times, get an odor from the nearby dairy farm....BUT neither of these were unbearable. Great location for visiting the many Casino's in the area(of course this could be good or bad) although, at least one near by Casino offers a Free Lobster Buffet(very good and a 32.00 value). Pools, spa's and clubhouse were clean and refreshing. We will return. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a Thousand Trails membership park. While this is the only park in the system I've stayed at, I've visited a couple of others in the So Cal area. This is the only one I'd use. It lacks 50 amp power. Has no cable TV. Digital antenna reception is disappointing. And at the site we're currently in, the sewer dump was missing a critical piece. (Not something that can't be addressed, but when you find this out after foolishly not watching your grey tank when doing, laundry . . .). Adhering to the Thousand Trails occupancy policy, we've been in and out of this park frequently while visiting family for the holidays. The 3 different sites we've had we're all spacious (you get to pick your own), easy to level, and quiet. The site I write this from backs up to what is best described as a canal stocked with catfish. Very nice. The adjacent dairy would likely be an issue during warmer months, but this time of year suggests a relaxing country presence on the fringe of urban congestion.

I last reviewed this park July 2010. Not many changes. Flies were present but not bothersome. They're not the biting kind and never entered the RV even leaving the door open on occassion. We didn't attempt to eat outside but noticed several sites had screened-in areas set up. Plus, we seemed to be in a duck/geese central area. They liked to make a lot ruckus but are mostly quiet at night. Sometimes did get a whiff of nearby dairy. Other than that it is still fun to watch all the birds and ride bikes around. Basketball court was newly resurfaced but still needed new nets. Pool was warm clean, and spa jets felt great. Lodge buildings are aging a bit They have several pool tables. They need a new ping pong table. Well stocked store. Adult pool was closed for season a little earlier than sceduled for maintenance issues. It was to be open while we were there. Several activities were planned but there was not much participation. We camped at Wilderness Lakes Preserve - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Overall the park is nicely kept. It has nice large sites, lots of wildlife (ducks, geese, birds, hawks, etc.). Friendly people. The only down side is that you are near a couple of dairies and chicken farms (it smells when the breeze is in the wrong direction), and there are a larger amount of fly(s) than one normally experiences.
