We boondocked 2 nights on Memorial Day weekend in our travel trailer.
Table Mountain Campground was very scenic and beautiful. There are large pine trees, hiking / biking trails, views and wildlife. We saw squirrels, many types of birds and deer. Layered clothing is a must as the mornings can be cold then mid-day warms up a bit.
The campground host/ranger was super nice and helpful. We were stuck in Labor Day traffic up through the Cajon Pass and arrived late in the evening as a result. It was dark and cold by the time we got there, but the host came right out to meet us, then ushered us into our campsite, helped us back in and level out (our pad was a little steep). He came back to check on us the next day to see how we were doing and to make sure we had everything we needed. Though we didn't participate, he told us the campgrounds screen family movies in the outdoor amphitheatre on the weekends.
Our campsite was primitive, but just gorgeous! There are sites with full hookups in another loop of the campground, but the pads are closer together and the sites are not as pretty. The pit toilets were relatively clean and the potable water spigot wasn't too far away from us.
We had a reservation for our site, but there are some primitive campsites set aside for first-come basis.
During our walks of the campgrounds, we did take note that alot of the pads were not too level.
We will definitely return to visit this campground again! - ftrrvr_684

We stayed here briefly on our very first trip with a new (to us) Class A motorhome. When we arrived, we needed the assistance of the Camp Host to change sites because ours was as steep as a playground slide, and we couldn't get level despite blocks and boards. No one was available, nor was there a sign saying when s/he would return. Perhaps because of this, the noise went on well after 11 p.m. Even worse, when we left the next day, large untrimmed branches overhanging the road left broad, deep scratches in the side of our coach. This is very traumatic when it's your first trip with a new toy! Class A motorhomes -- beware! Avoid this campground! - Doberpug

This is an OK spot to stay if you need to be around the Northeast corner of the LA area. An interesting drive from I-5, one might think to be lost, but it shows up on the Garmin. It is not fancy, old, lots of permanent sites. It is a little tight to get in and out of, but cheap. - mebehr

Has about 25 sites with cable and full hookups. The rest are water and electric. Has a dump station. There are lots of shade trees. Its a very pretty setting. Manager is hard to find. - Julianne

For this location, you have to know what you're going into and if that's your thing... then it's all good!! It's rustic and all dirt. There are only a couple of sites with full hookups (and they are not bad). Again, if you're looking for rustic!! The surroundings are beautiful and that I did enjoy even as a confessed Glamper. Beware of the power supply, it says 50amps, but no ... at least not consistently. Use a surge protector, for sure!!! It's mostly for tent campers, who fill the place up on weekends and don't mind overlapping their tents onto your site. But, they were all really nice and I met some good people that I shared a beer or two with. The staff is nice and very helpful. The kids loved it, but keep an eye out, there is wildlife, mainly rattlesnakes, raccoons and an occasional late evening bear. All said and done, when I'm feeling like getting down and gritty, aside from my glamping lifestyle, I'll go back!! - Glamper Dude

First I will say that we did not stay here, but went to preview it before reserving. The good: The area was prettier than I expected, didn't realize that area even existed. Reminded me of the San Gorgonio area a bit. The creek was this place's saving grace. It was awesome how you can camp RIGHT on the creek. Some places say you are on the creek, but these really are. It was fantastic. The bad: No shade, no grass. Went on a Wednesday and the gate was locked, restaurant/check-in was closed. (Also closed Tuesday.) The place was completely empty except the permanent campers who also pretty much take up all the hook-up spots. There were two (of about 9) still available, but I don't think I would camp in those spots. The permanent guys aren't tidy. Plus those sites aren't on the creek. In a row (I guess you could say) behind. Also, the website makes this place look waaaay better than it is. I never did find restrooms or showers. It's basically just dirt along the creek. There were porta potties and a couple of water spiggots scattered about. A number of full and somewhat stinky trash bins. I seriously have no idea how they charge $50 a night. Bizarre. In their defense, there were some heavy rainstorms lately and maybe that had something to do with the condition of the place. Overall: I absolutely love, love, love creekside camping so I'd camp here anyway, but if you aren't the same, this certainly is one worth skipping. I brought my mom and sister. My mom wouldn't stay here and my sister said she "might." We have young kids and they loved playing in the water. While we were here, the water was moving quite fast at only about 3 feet at its deepest. Didn't see any fish, but I'd imagine there are some in there. Could set up a lounge chair right in the water and lounge all day long. - CHeller

We could hardly believe how rustic and beautiful Camp Williams was, considering it is within easy reach of a major metropolitan area - L.A.! It's nestled in a canyon formed by the San Gabriel Mountains, and the East Fork of the San Gabriel River runs right through the camp. RV sites are nestled among the trees for cool shade during the summer months, but have a beautiful view of the river. Tent sites are, literally, right along the banks. You can fish right from your tent! The Café offers a great place to grab a delicious meal, from a pancakes & eggs breakfast to a juicy hamburger so you can take a break from cooking. We had a great time here, and look forward to visiting again soon! - bcbounders

Sites are really small. You and your neighbor can't both put out your awnings if that's the way you are parked. Didn't use any of the extras as we were there for the RVIA Show at the Fairplex. People in office were nice. - mgalex

We stayed here in a 42' motor home with a tow - we unhooked our Jeep prior to driving to our site. The spaces were pretty cool as you could drive in either side of your street and there were hookups on both sides of the RV. All sites are pull-through and there was a parking space for our Jeep. The staff was busy but very friendly and attentive. The manager was also there helping someone with directions. Our dog loved the beautiful long pet walk. The park was being maintained daily and trees were trimmed--lots of large trees for shade. This is an older park, close to lots of great restaurants and you can just walk over to the Fairplex events. Had a great stay! - Papa-leenie d

We stayed here for an RV reunion. The park has a nice setting with lots of trees. That is a plus, but also a problem. The park is very tight for maneuvering. Many sites are way too narrow. The first site they sent us to was so tight that we could not put out our slides without hitting something. There are a lot of long term residents, but they mostly keep up their areas and are very friendly. I would only stay here if going to an event at the Pomona Fairplex. - hajime

Very happy with our stay. RV park overlooks reservoir, so has the feeling of being way out of town (very quiet, no traffic or trains) - but really in the middle of things. We were there on weekdays, so don't know how it is on weekends.
Paid extra for premium site - definitely worth it to us. - Cindy S

Lots of green grass with paved sites just outside of LA. Our first two attempts to get our motorhome level in two sites in section A went bust. We were finally able to level in a small site in section B. Our dog loved the vast amounts of grassy space throughout the park. The staff were very friendly and lots of monitoring by the park rangers. The laundry area was huge with 28 washers and dryers and two super sized washers. Surprisingly there seemed to be a lot of full time residents. Overall a nice park. - Tony Connie and Rusty

No wifi...not even a paid option. We stayed in a nice space in A loop, but it was near the trash cans (55g drums) so by day 2 we had an ant infestation. They offered us alternative sites in the F loop down by the lake, but the spaces were small and the neighborhood was a bit sketchy compared to loop A so we stayed up on the hill and battled the ants. It looks like about 40% of the spaces are long-term residents. Most keep their lots nice. Some...not so much. - 20fromnow

We only overnighted here. It was a weekday, off season, and the place was pretty much empty. The site was very nice with lots of trees and shrubs and privacy. The RV sites are pretty small, though, so I wouldn't recommend it for big rigs. Even though we enjoyed the naturalness of the site, at $50 it was WAY overpriced in my opinion. - Pdxjoanne

Lake Silverwood has inherited the college type party atmosphere for summer. That means loud noise and crazy college kids running around like its spring break. Head to the full hookup sites if you want a quieter atmosphere. Hit the beach early and find a quiet spot there so you can avoid the numbskulls. - User3403

Another typical CA state park- a bit run down and dirty, tiny sites close together, packed on weekends. This is a wonderful mountain reservoir, clean and scenic. With CA-138 running along 3 sides of the canyon, don't expect any quiet. The road in (from I-15 to the west of the park), roads within, and sites are a bit tight for a big rig, but with care and skill can be managed. Friendly rangers. - Windjammer

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. - Bigrig43

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." - Touchwood

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! - rdmike

Very spread out parkland with winding roads and mostly turnouts for RV sites. Utility connections were good, water pressure good, no WiFi, but excellent Verizon 4G service. Heavy equipment working to create a levee at rear of park next to Women's Prison. - jbrucemagon

Rate reflects 7 nights for price of 6. Our motorhome is 45' long. It could fit in any site here and there was no problem driving the interior roads. We stayed in site 4 (as new campers in the park). In future we would look at sites 63-67 as they have nice large concrete patios, moveable tables, guaranteed satellite access. All sites have a large fire pit. The sites are widely spaced. The weekend was totally full! Pros: grass, spacious, level sites, good services, park itself, lots of birds, park rangers do a great job. Cons: loudspeaker from the women's prison begins at about 6:30 am and goes sporadically til 10 pm, gunfire can be heard from the shooting range most of the time, smell from nearby dairy farms, sewer overflowed the first time we dumped (apparently campers think it's funny to put odd things down the pipe). Otherwise would definitely stay here again. The negatives are not a deal breaker! - Larry Hamblin

Had a wonderful stay at Prado. It is a large regional park with paddle boats, golf, target shooting, fishing and other activities within the park or very nearby. A spacious setting on a sizable Lake created by the Prado dam. The individual campsites are very roomy with a lot of space between sites. Camp sites 50-70 have large cement pads but 1-49 are also very nice. Most sites have shade and there are many lovely trees throughout the park. Lots of beautiful space for walking the dogs and many large open areas. We stayed here four nights in our 30' rig and enjoyed it thoroughly. We'll definitely be back. Maximum stay is 14 days. The park personnel were all very pleasant and helpful. - Sheridan

Well maintained park operated by the County of San Bernardino. The sites are roomy, level and easy to access. Each site has a picnic table and metal fire ring. The Mojave River Forks name implies that a flowing river would be nearby. In fact, the Mojave River is not readily accessible to the campground and only flows seasonally. For watersports, Silverwood Lake is only a 10-minute vehicle ride away. The main activities featured at this park are hiking and equestrian trails. We made reservations ($5.00 fee) at www.co.san-bernardino.ca.us/parks/ and only had to show our reservation confirmation at the entrance gate. We camped at site #18 which did have a shade tree. A very quiet park and we would stay here again. - highlander92

This park was nearly deserted when we camped here. There are a number of sites with full hookups and others (in a different section) without any. Each site has a table and a firepit, also a grill. There seemed to be a shade tree or two at each site, along with grassy areas. Sites are packed gravel and seemed ample for most rigs. The restrooms are older and fairly basic, but were well maintained. A quiet, peaceful place with lots of acreage on which to walk or ride bikes. This is a San Bernardino County park and the only payment method accepted when we visited was cash. There is an on-site host. Note that you must have proof of insurance on your rv, plus show the registration papers before you are allowed to register. We stayed here for two nights and would happily stay again. - rfarkle

This was our destination campground as I had a five-day conference to attend just down the street. I never could make the Tengonet wifi work. We left every morning before the office opened and returned every night after the office closed so could not find out what the problem was with their wifi. I used my cell phone as a wifi hotspot instead so it was no big deal.
This place is a county owned and operated park and campground. It was immaculate in every respect. All streets are paved and every space is level concrete. There is a lot of room between each space so it never felt crowded. There were a lot of trees and, in spite of the drought, a lot of freshly mowed grass. A very pretty park!
There are two separate RV areas. One campground is the older area in the back (Lakeview), the newer area is Cottonwood. Cottonwood is closer to the front entrance, office and store. We camped in the newer Cottonwood area. To us, it seemed much nicer. During the day, there were maintenance people all over the place taking care of things. At night, very quiet and peaceful.
They have a very nice convenience store.
I would camp here again. We camped here in a motorhome. - Wise Old Man

Would have been a 9 for me if they had sewer hook-ups. They do have a dump station.
This park is clean, very quiet, and is behind closed gates at night.
AC power is good and remains stable.
Water is good and pressure is 50+ lbs.
This park is an excellent value for the $15 Passport America rate. - RagFtw

This a very nice park, spacious, well maintained, but ALWAYS booked up!! It has great amenities for the kids and adults as well. Great for bike rides, walks and fishing. However, I do not recommend staying on the lake side (not if you are like me and prefer to glamp). The lake side was, in my opinion too rustic and occupied by too many shady looking characters!! You can instantly tell you're in a different place when you cross over the threshold to the lake. I also don't recommend staying where I stayed. I suggest the inner circle where there's grass and some trees. The outer sites (where i stayed)...straight dirt backed by weeds. There is plenty of space between the sites which is great!! I can't imagine any size rig would have too much difficulty maneuvering around within the park. - Glamper Dude

The park itself is decent. But it sits right smack dab in the middle of the ghetto. It has a nice laundry all the machines work. No pool or playground, lots of long term people. - Travler Nurse

This park is not recommended for anyone with a trailer. The reason is the park entrance is by a NARROW, ONE LANE washboard road, and if you meet someone coming the other way, you cannot pass. If you do decide to camp here, the campground is on a hill, and the sites are not level, but are on asphalt. There is a charcoal grill and a picnic table, and water is at a central spigot. The rangers are very friendly, and the campground is quiet. - res08hao

While Chino Hills State Park has existed for a couple of decades, or more, the new small campground was just opened in May of 2005. Maximum length for RV's is 28 feet. All spots are back in. In a few years the trees they have planted will provide nice shade. The 24 spots are all paved and pretty level, and are terraced up the side of a hill, so everyone gets a view! The restrooms and showers are brand new and immaculate! Lot's of hiking, mountain biking trails. The park is about 12,000 acres with lots of Oak trees. When you enter the park you will drive about 3 miles on a narrow dirt road until you reach the center of the park where everything is paved. Very helpful Rangers on duty and easy to find. Very quiet. This little campground is one of the best kept secrets in the area. You will feel like you are 200 miles from anywhere, when in fact you are less than 4 miles from civilization! You can hear the coyotes at night. Get's the ocean breezes from Orange County. - chockwald

We stayed overnight during December. A number of locals were fishing in the lake in the afternoon. There was only one other party in the campground proper with us. We had a lake view with electric hookup but no water hookup. Other sites have both hookups but no view. We liked the place for a short stay, nothing to rave about, but quiet, clean, fenced off. I believe the electric box had a 50A receptacle (I only need 30A), but the fuses may have been 30A. If you need 50A just call to get the low-down. Overall, I would recommend the place for a stop-over. - TvE

This is a city of Hesperia municipal park, & the condition is about what one would expect for that. It's high desert, flat, open & a long way from luxurious. It's obviously under-funded & needs maintenance, but it's kept clean, well-run & quiet time was well enforced despite an annual "pow wow" being held there the weekend we were there. It's off a rural road, so there was very little road noise to disturb our sleep. It's certainly not a "destination" but, based on the reviews of the other places in the area, including a cousin I have who lives there, it seems the place of choice for an overnight or two if the opportunity presents. We would stay there again when in the area. The lake yielded 1 huge trout & several large catfish that we saw during our 3 days there. - gs2rt

A beautiful location up in the mountains, but not for the faint-hearted or for vehicles prone to overheating. The drive entails 16 miles up a switchback road, precipitous drop-offs on one side. I drive a 40-foot rig, and some of the hairpin turns meant using both lanes!
Once there, the place is isolated, tranquil, beautiful. Our wooded campsite was isolated enough that we didn't see anybody except the park ranger soon after we arrived. Shower house was an easy 1/4 mile walk, nice hot showers, spacious shower stalls, everything clean.
Apart from the drive there, the only 2 negatives were that my GPS tried to take me in the back way, through a footpath (not the park's fault, but ended in a narrow cul-de-sac), then when we left, no exit signs! We were driving round loops not designed for a 40-foot RV for about 15 minutes till we found the camp host who gave us directions out. - RV-Roamer

We have stayed at this forested campground years ago and decided to come back for a visit. Our site was sloped quite a bit from back to front, which caused the front wheels of our MH to be off of the ground. The trees were very close and our front door opened between two trees, which made it kind of an obstacle course getting in and out of the door. All of the usable space was behind the rig. The 50 amp service worked well, and there was a water faucet close enough to the rig so I could get water at the site using about 75' of water hose. The big negative for me was the addition of the new "pay dump station" at the front entry. The price of the park was pricey in itself for the lack of full hook ups, but the new dump station charges a $10 per dump fee whether you are staying in the park or not. I stayed 5 days in the park, and brought a gray water tote to allow for the extended stay. I was shocked by $10 per use fee for registered campers. $2 to $3 would have been reasonable, but $10 is just ripping off the public. In my opinion, these unreasonably high fees will just encourage campers to illegally dump there gray water on the ground. I will not stay here again just because of the dump fee. - SargeW

This is a nice quiet campground nestled in the woods. All of the RV spaces are paved. However, they are not level. Our space was close to level side-to-side, but the tongue on the front of our trailer was almost on the ground to get it level front to back. There was not too much level ground even near the picnic table. Inconvenient, but not terrible. We still managed to enjoy the outdoors, and not all of the spaces were like that. The facility is well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is ample space between the sites, and the surrounding trees make each space seem very secluded. We had a spot with an electric hookup and there was water nearby. They also have a dump station at the checkout. Overall, we liked this place and we'll be back. Next time bringing more leveling blocks. - Linerider

Great state campground! Super clean and nice. Only reason for the 9 is wi-fi and phone don't work well (Our wifi, campground does not offer) and no pull through sites. All sites are back in and noise does carry, so some groups can be loud. Also, they now charge $5 if you disconnect your tow car coming up the windy mountain roads, which is silly! It was clear it was our tow car, and we followed the RV in. Guess it's part of the way our state is trying to make up lost revenue. This books up fast as there are not a lot of electric sites. Sites are spacious and just plain nice! Thank you to the crew who really cares and takes care of it. - Dank

This is a wonderful campground! Just wish it had more spots for larger RVs with hookups too. It's very rustic, but nature at it's best. It's also very hard to get in, we certainly could use more RV available places to go around Lake Arrowhead area! It's well maintained and the staff has always been very friendly and helpful. - Dank

Good place to camp, very friendly staff, great affordable site, clean restrooms and showers. Only one draw back is the noise from highway 18, you can hear it especially in the morning. The high school is also located next to the campground so if they are playing football or if the band is practicing you hear that too. We enjoyed the football and the band! We will be back. The rangers told us that it is especially beautiful in the fall because the dogwood tree's are in bloom. - Kat1146

We pulled into the center section of the park which is just a huge bare gravel lot, but the spacing was nice. Stayed for 1 night. Power, sewer, water utilities worked fine. If they had wifi & cable we didn't use it. Our internet hotspot worked fine. It is close to an airplane facility, but we never heard any air traffic during the night. It was quiet at night until about 5:30am when there began to be a lot of traffic noise along the west side of the park. Park is in a rural area and fenced in except for the entrance. We would stay there again if we ever were in the area again. The staff was pleasant to deal with. - Arlen

Strange layout; if the park had been full we are not sure we could have executed the move they suggested; space numbers on the payment but very faded. If you are coming from the South off I-15, you might want to get fuel at that intersection’s truck stop instead of waiting until you are in Adelanto. This park worked very well for an overnight. - zen_letitbe

Average park, just okay for an overnighter. Sites are bare, but the park itself is outlined by shade trees. Tight sites (we could put out our slides, but not our awning). Very quiet at night. Bathrooms just acceptable, toilet leaking. Friendly staff. - User3773

We are 2 seniors, traveling full time. We find the staff very, very friendly and helpful. The sites and amenities are very clean. The pads and all walkways are full concrete, so no dirt or mud into rig. We walk to Food for Less and Wal-Mart stores from our camp site for exercise and our shopping. Very handy and very quite sites. Wi-Fi is excellent, as is the laundry. We highly recommend Mission RV Park. - happytallones

This is one very tight park. They told us they had room for us but when we got there we couldn't get into the site they assigned us. Very outdated as well. The reservation system is on a bulletin board with tiny pieces of paper. The dog "run" is more of a 6' x 6' square. Would I recommend this park or stay again, no. - Easy does it
May 2013 - $36.00
We stayed one night here based on previous reviews. This is a very friendly park but is mostly long term residents. It is not big rig friendly due to the narrow streets. Our rig is 36 feet and it was difficult to navigate back to our site and then, because residents park their cars in front of their sites, difficult to leave. The dog run is not a dog run. It is maybe 8x8' in a back corner. As a long term rv park this is a nice park. For one or two nights - not so much. - TexanOne

Previous reviews are correct about the frequency of trains passing in close proximity to the pull-through sites. However, the back-in sites along the lake are far enough away that the noise was not obnoxious to us, especially since they pass quickly and do not blow their whistles. Of course, we also live in a railroad town, so are quite accustomed to trains. The check-in staff were very pleasant, the sites well-spaced, with low usage on a Sunday. We had no difficulty backing in our 32 ft. trailer. There are lots of trees, but we easily obtained a satellite signal. AT&T phone & data service worked well. We'd have no hesitancy to return here. - BJ Snowbird

Weird place in that it has both significant good and bad things about it. The good: The valley it’s located in is quite nice, especially considering everything else around it. There’s horseback riding available there (within a healthy walking distance anyway). The lateral space in between each site is quite nice and if you’re backed in to one row of sites you have a wide grass field between you and the folks in the row uphill from you. The staff was visible at times but was not intrusive. The drives and the pads are asphalt. Verizon cell coverage was max bars here. The bad: Located a long way from I-15 i.e. 6-7 miles, so this isn’t a good OVN location in my opinion. The layout of the site driveways are all wrong in that the angle of them in relation to your neighbors across from you is way too sharp. If it were not for the fact my neighbor had parked his tow vehicle somewhere else I wouldn’t have been able to back into my site without spending significant time doing multiple ‘pull-ups’. No cable & no Wi-Fi for the price they charge is a bit out of line. The ‘facilities’ are terrible; run-down old school park bathrooms/showers with accompanying damage, not one of us would use them. The ‘Lake’ has been dry for a couple of years as I’m told (storm damage to dam) talk is there’s no plan on fixing the dam. Park closes early and if you want back in you have to unlock a paddle-locked swing gate (not easy when it’s dark outside), which is cumbersome and inconvenient. Finally, multiple freight trains running 24/7 within a stone’s throw of the sites. I would go back here but only because it’s a good centralized location for us to link up with friends whom live in the L.A. area. This place has crazy potential, but I guess when the county runs something like this there’s not much chance it will reach anywhere near the level it could be at if given to a private concern with adequate money to run/maintain/develop it. - blomquir

This park was a disappointment. It has been flooded very badly this year and is in recovery mode. (Lots of dirt and mud around everywhere.) The sites are great, but trains run adjacent about every 20 minutes (all night long). When we checked in, it was a long process and we had to produce the registration for both of our truck and trailer which we have never had to do before. This is not a place we will return to. - Olytravvler

Let's get the 'bad' out of the way first. You read other reviews and think surely the road noise from the 91 freeway can't be that bad. Well... It kinda is, and it's 24/7. But then again, it's also white noise and quickly fades into the background - until a 'loud pipes save lives' type goes blasting down the highway, anyway. It's unfortunate, but is simply the inescapable nature of an urban campground bordering a freeway. The property appears to have lots of gophers, and gopher holes are everywhere. Not a big deal though, as long as you watch where you're stepping. Also: ants.
Now for the 'good'. The park was quite nice overall. Interior roads are kind of narrow, but easy to drive. The office staff was easy to work with and generally friendly, if a bit dispassionate. The site I had was easy to back into and reasonably level, and the gravel surface was evenly laid. The power podium could have used some maintenance simply due to wear-and-tear (not neglect), but supplied a solid 122V on both 50A legs all weekend. Water pressure was stable & good at ~45 psi.
Huge trees are everywhere, and the green spaces are nicely maintained. The play areas look nice, as does the swimming pool. The spray pool was closed this weekend, but I'm told it's only used during peak summer months. There are huge open spaces, plentiful shade trees and tons of room for special events like the Corgi meet-up & show that was there this weekend. AT&T cellular voice & data service was stable and excellent (LTE, 17 Mbps down / 6 Mbps up per Speedtest app on Apple IOS devices).
Overall I was happy with my stay here. It's not a quiet space, but is otherwise very nice and reasonably convenient to local attractions. I look forward to visiting again! - pantherjeep

Pros - clean, table at each site, fire ring at each site, salt water pool and very clean, easy access to bike trail
Cons - not enough electricity during the day to run any appliances, had to run generator to keep food cold, car noise during the day is very noticeable, office staff is NOT friendly. - Linda M

The staff at this park are very friendly and welcoming. We had a spacious site with full hook-ups. It's true, there was no grass, but this is the desert and lots of desert campgrounds don't have grass, so it wasn't a negative for us. There are some long-term residents, but the ones at our end of the campground kept there sites clean and they didn't have a lot of junk on their sites. My husband did see one campsite of a long-term resident that needed to be cleaned up, but it was behind a fence, so it wasn't obvious. Still, this camper needs to be told to clean up or move on. The rest of the campsites were neat and orderly. The highway noise died down at night and we didn't hear a train, so that wasn't a problem for us. We would stay here again if in the area. - Bobbi1948

The $36 rate including tax got us a bare bones pull-through site with water & electricity only! A little overpriced for the facility. They did have a lot of shade trees which was nice. However they are located just off of I-15 and the highway noise was very noticeable as well as train noise. They did have a small pool, however it wasn't heated. - Michael Kibler

This was just a one night stop on our way home. If we had WiFi available to check RV park reviews before landing here, we would have gone elsewhere. This campground is very poorly maintained. After checking out the showers, we decided to wait until we got home. There was also quite a bit of traffic noise from Interstate 15, with train whistles in the distance. - Skip'n'Mugs

This campground is only for Elks members. The park is quiet, although it lies near the highway. The employees of the lodge are very friendly and helpful. They have 30 amps, water and wifi. The dump station is in front of the building. The key to the dump station is located in the office. Just a mile away there are supermarkets and other shops. We were happy here and would definitely come back. - Myrvisbig

A members only park. RV parking is behind the lodge. There are many RV's in storage here (15 or so). The 5 transient spaces might be reservable with a phone call, though the Elks RV book doesn't indicate this. The book indicates a 2 week maximum stay; however,during our visit there were 3 rigs here with over a month in the same spot. We saw one other rig spend 1 night during our 5 night stay. It would appear that the lodge is flexible for whatever a person needs. Shopping is nearby. - Bucky Beaver

This park has so many problems in should not be in business, the water supply has according to the bulletin handed out by the Manager coli form and is un-drinkable. The septic system collapsed and a motor home sunk into the ground causing $7,000. in damage to the motor home alone, and according to the work crew this is the third time this has happened! There are no pool or any thing else at this park and it is miles from any attractions. This seams to be a long term park for low income people. - lethia

We stayed here for six weeks and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly and very clean. About 70% of spaces are permanent campers. It was very quiet. Propane available on site. Our monthly rate was $400. We aren't towing a vehicle and the only negative thing was that it's a two-mile walk to the grocery store. That said, we had plenty of offers for rides. - Maudeen

We weren’t sure what we were going to find when we decided to try this park. On previous trips through this area we had stayed at other parks, both private and county, and found them to be difficult to get to or way to noisy or run down. We were pleasantly surprised and very happy with our stay at the Lone Wolf Colony. We didn’t have reservations but the office staff was very friendly and anxious to make our stay comfortable. We parked in the B section, which is mostly permanent residents, and the sites are large with easy access. The park is clean and well cared for and many of the permanent residents have their sites fixed up very nicely. There is also another area for short timers which was all dirt but with nice trees and lots of space and since it was nicely graded it appears that these sites are level. Although we camped here only 3 nights, we were given a vacant spot in the B section. One thing we learned is that the Lone Wolf Colony is a nonprofit organization which is owned and operated by retired telephone company employees and volunteers. In my opinion, one of the reasons this park is so well cared for is because these folks take great pride in their organization. Showers, bathrooms, laundry room and clubhouse were all very clean and in good condition. We had good Verizon broadband and cell service in this area. - HnHTravels

This park is small and not all that nice for the area it is in. The spaces are not nearly the size that the web site states. Our site was supposed to be 45' and it was only about 20. We have a 37' 5th wheel and cold not fit into any of the spots. There is not much shade. We left without staying. - R&S

Okay, here is the 411 on this campground. First let me say the good. It was absolutely beautiful. The trees are huge. The air is clean. The camp host was the friendliest we have ever experienced. All of the sites are spread out, so it is nice and quiet. They allowed fires and they have bathrooms (no showers). In the actually town Green Valley which is about 1 mile from the campground, is a little lake. We rented a row boat and a paddle boat. They have a pay beach for swimming and picnics. The fishing there is great. They stocked it the day before we got there. Now the bad. We did not fit into our site #8. According to "Reserveamerica" we did, and our site was considered an RV site. Luckily they had 2 more sites to choose from. We tried site 24 and after 2 attempts decided to try site 25. No joke we tried 6 times. The camp host moved a wooden barrier for us and we finally made it in. I think we both have permanent sweat stains. This CG is not for anyone over 24 feet. According to the host, it was originally set up for tents only and now they let RV and TT in, but she said she has to turn people way because the internet is wrong on the site lengths. We would definitely recommend this campground, if you fit. - seeshell

This is a very nice RV park. It consists of mostly long-term campers but has a long row of sites available for shorter stays. The sites are long enough for big rigs but very narrow. There aren't many trees so the narrowness of the sites doesn't pose a problem for slide-outs, but there is only a very small patch of grass at each site to sit out on, and there are no picnic tables. The facilities are all super clean. There is a pool & spa. Didn't use them but they looked very nice. The shower rooms were among the largest I've come across. Very comfortable. And they have a nice large laundry room which we made good use of. They have cable but didn't use it, however the Wi-Fi was free and excellent! Was able to use it fully both at our site and in the laundry room. I really appreciated being able to bring my laptop and multi-task while doing the laundry!
The office was closed when we arrived at 3 p.m. and there was no self-check in, only a confusing sign on the door. We almost left, but since we could see that there were lots of spaces available we called the number on the door. The owner (manager?) apparently lives just upstairs and came down right away and checked us in. That and the lack of picnic tables are the only reasons that I gave this park a 9 instead of a 10. Very nice place and we would definitely stay again if we are passing through this area. - Pdxjoanne

Seemed like a good park although all he spaces are really close together. More like a place where people live full time, but it doesn't look like it. Worst dog run I have ever seen, they do have an area called "the back yard" where pets are allowed that is really nice. Could be a windy area. Didn't see anyone sitting outside of their rigs. - Spantz

The location of this park is great if you plan to visit Disney. The staff was very friendly and offered lots of information about the area. Our site was concrete with a table and umbrella. There appears to be some full time residents with quarters and other vehicles that take away from the overall rating. The dog park is covered with small pebbles which seems to hold the pee smells. Pets are not allowed on the grass in the park or outside the front entrance. - Michael47

Very convenient for visiting Disney, Knott's etc. Splurge for the deluxe site, it is worth it. Escort to site did a great job backing in our motor home and avoiding the truck that was parked across the way hanging out into the street. Staff helpful and friendly. Nice pool and spa area. Oddly enough, our power went out every morning around 6 am. Only stayed off for a few minutes, but enough to mess up the clocks and satellite dish. Had a very nice patio table and chairs and shady, grassy area to sit and relax. Small dog runs, not very pet friendly, but there is a convenient dog wash area. - fulltimerjan

When you enter the park you think "looks great and green", that quickly changes into "this is bad". The service is the worst you can imagine. Personal activities are more important than customers, excuse me? They let me wait until they had discussed with a friend whether or not they would join the drinking party that evening. No smiles, no kindness, very bad attitude!
The restrooms and showers are outdated. The campsites have different sizes and it is up to the staff if you get a great spot with grass and a picnic table or if your windows are 2 inch apart of your neighbors.
A park can be made as good looking as you want, when the service you get is not good, it does not matter - Palazzo fan

This park is mostly occupied by permanent residents, which makes it feel very much like a trailer park. The front desk staff was not helpful at all. When we checked in, they did not offer (nor mention) a key to the restroom, which is where the showers are. When we went to shower that evening, we discovered them locked without a code. We went to the office the next morning to inquire and the kids behind the counter just said that a key was required and it cost $5 (which you get back when you turn the key back in). We tried to purchase Disneyland tickets from the front desk, as it is advertised that they sell them, and they dismissively told me they were "sold out" and didn't have any. They gave me the business card of a "discount dealer" who supposedly sold Disneyland tickets, but we just bought our tickets at the gate. We planned on walking to and from Disneyland from the campground, but it's really quite far (too far for our children and along a very busy road and up and over a major freeway) and ended up taking cabs after trying the walk once. We stayed in this campground because it's closer to Disneyland than other park. The overall experience felt like we were living in a low budget trailer park. I would never stay here again. - User2869

This park is very close to a very busy road. But you are 12 minutes from Disneyland. Their hookups were awkward and only allowed for back in. But they let us take two spots which left room for our Toad and bikes. Be careful of theft with the road, although we felt safe with occasional security guards patrolling. Not the kind of park you would hang out much outside your camper. But why would you? Go to Disneyland!! - The Travel Family

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

The max is 8 people, however we had 10 total, which is why the cost per month was higher than advertised (most advertise a price for 2 - 4 people). Nice and close to Disneyland. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Hot tub was nice. Wi-Fi was lacking... had to go over to the pool area in order to maintain a connection.
Shower area was OK. The dividers for the 2 showers made it a little clumsy to maintain privacy. Also, the water was cold for the 1st group to shower, then started to turn warm.
Surprised how packed it was for October, particularly during the week.
Used the shuttle bus. You can text a number to find out real-time what time the shuttle is coming (about every 25 minutes). In hindsite, given the size of our crew, it may have been better to go through the trouble of unhooking then just paying to park at DL.
There was a small grassy area where the kids could toss a football around. Our site had a nice view of the DL fireworks. The site was assigned... we did not get to pick/request the site.
Overall, I'd stay here again. - 10 Thompsons

This was our worst camping experience in two years. Frankly, I am surprised that there are so many positive reviews. My wife and I found this campground to be very dismal. The RV parking on the upper level is dirty and has almost no aesthetic appeal. It's like a big dirt parking lot dug out of the side of the hill. There are no views to speak of, just a big wall of dirt out back and construction out front. The picnic tables for each site appear to have never been cleaned and are covered with stains and debris. There was no Wi-Fi or phone service in the RV area so you had to walk down the hill to the community center for any services of that sort and even there it was spotty. We were scheduled to stay one week but left after 3 nights - as soon as we could locate an alternative park. I certainly would not recommend this location to any RVers. It is a difficult drive in though a poorly maintained road and the park itself is dreary at best. - Sheridan

Now this is not your usual RV park. But by far the cheapest place offering full hookup sites in Orange County. A Christian event center runs this park which is located on their premise quite a bit outside of any town in the area. It is meant for longer stays, but travelers (and you don't need to be a religious person) are welcome. You have to go through the somewhat unusual reservation process though. Online only through their website and at least one week in advance. It took me a couple of follow up calls to confirm our reservation. Driving there you can use your GPS with the adress stated on the website. The last mile to the gate of the event center is a very bumpy country road. We wondered why the six speed bumps on the way were needed. The gate code was provided with the reservation confirmation. Checking in at the office was a bit different then with other parks. Little room to park the rig. Photo ID and insurance papers needed to be shown and photocopied. Once that was set and the credit card slided we could drive the last half mile up to the RV sites. Very bumpy indeed. Mostly gravel, some enormous potholes and a few low branches skirting the roof. You have to drive to the upper level of the park and I would recommend to take the left way when the road forks at the lower level. There are more sites on the lower level but these are not for public use. The sites are all back in and in #35 we had just about enough room to maneuver with our 34' RV (51' combined length). The sites with lower numbers provide more room and longer rigs would not have problems there. The sites are gravel, provide full hookups in OK shape, even cable. We needed no leveling equipment. The WiFi was OK, not the fastest, but good enough for emails and web browsing. Our Verizon worked on the lower level but not up on our site. Very friendly and considerate neighbors. The place is very safe and very quiet, especially at night. Be prepared for some christian events on and around the lower level from Friday night to Sunday afternoon including early morning music and singing, prayers and more music and singing throughout the day. No noise after 10 pm. Overall, this is an off the beaten path option to park your RV. I would not recommend going there if it is for less than at least three days. The reservation and check in hassle along with the long and bumpy drive in and out is not worth it if it is only for a night. We stayed for six nights, enjoying the remoteness, safety and quietness. We also enjoyed the low rate and did not mind the somewhat long drives to the L.A. and Orange County attractions. We will come back. - TheSchweitzers

This park has residents packed in like cord wood with extremely little room between each unit. Most units were permanent residents with related items scattered throughout their minuscule piece of land. Our space had no place to park our truck and ended up with having to go find a security guard to deal with the angry permanent resident next door the very first night. The lot was so narrow there was insufficient room to extend our awning without banging into the awning of the unit next to us. We stayed here because it was close to where family live but we will NEVER stay here again. - TeamNewMexico

Be aware, Glen Ivy RV is no longer a Passport America member. While the site we had was level, the TV cable did not work and the dumping station at the site (#22) had water in it up to within a foot of the cap. I was unwilling to dump there, as it may have overflowed. The park itself seemed nice. One of three men showers in the nearest bathroom had been out of order for what appeared to be a long time, as it had accumulated a lot of refuse. The electric worked fine. There was lots of shade from very nice old trees. - JDRobar

I have stayed at Soledad Canyon before and was really hard on the property in my critique. I won't repeat that review because that was then and now is now... and what a difference now makes!!! The sites now showed that they have been tended to, not cluttered with weeds and debris like before. Everything looked clean. The shrubs were manicured. The sites looked like they had been leveled and prepped. I don't know if it's new management or new attitude but it's definitely an improvement. The roads and trees were clean and easy to drive on. After our last stay, we swore we would never return... I'm so glad we did!!! There is still work to be done, but they are so headed in the right direction. It's now on my "definitely will be back" list!! The staff... amazing!!! One gentlemen with a beard and a young lady riding in the cart with him (wish I had gotten their names) were exceptionally great. They saw that the picnic table at my sight was riddled with splinters and falling apart and within 30mins they brought me a brand new table (literally brand new)!!! They would roll by and converse about just any old thing... that added a very special touch that I enjoy when glamping!!! I was really hard on this property in the past, but now it gets two thumbs up!!! There was a considerable amount of trash behind my site and on the hillside, but everything else had been so greatly improved, I looked over that, besides I'm sure there working on that as well. The wifi is only in the lodges and it's not very good, but I hear that's being redone through out the park. Forget a phone signal unless you drive up on the hill (section N). There phone and verizon mifi (if you have one) works fine. The pool is nice. The water effects by the family lodge with the big grassy fields... really nice...(you couldn't fine a blade of grass there before)!!! - Glamper Dude

I stayed in this park a couple of years ago and it was OK, but new manager is making tremendous progress turning it into a great park.

We stayed back in the fall of 2014 in the upper campground and were able to get some ATT service. Those are the nicer sites and also quieter.
This trip we stayed for 3 nights in the lower campground in the section near the storage yard. With the exception of the Metro-Link trains that came by hourly it was OK. We had a problem with ants because while the sites are supposed to be gravel they are over grown with weeds. This is also because of the drought so the little critters are searching for anything.
We stayed Tues thru Friday and on Thurs night the weekend campers came in and the noise began. After 11 it calmed down but I'm glad we didn't stay for the weekend.
We are TT members so it was included in our membership. Hopefully the next time we are down in the area things will improve there. - Toni11

Stay elsewhere. This is a neglected RV park that is part of a mobile home park with virtually no management. Basically, it's is a free-for-all with no manager on site for more than a couple hours a week. People came and went regularly without even paying. The dumpsters were usually overflowing with couches and mattresses from the trailer park. The bathrooms are inexcusably bad. The shower head is mounted at chest level and the rest of the bathroom is just decaying. They were never cleaned in the time we stayed and smelled terrible. No locks on the doors. Prepare to use your RV shower exclusively. Many sites are pretty uneven so if you do stay here, bring a lot of leveling blocks. Beware of the cockroaches living in the sewers. They have a pool but seeing they never cleaned the bathrooms, it's hard to believe they did much to maintain the pool. The trailer park residents don't have any qualm about cutting through the RV sites as shortcuts. Overall this is the worst park we've stayed at in our cross country travels. It's sad because it has potential, but management just doesn't seem to care about the place. - wantahertzdonut

The man who runs the park was one of the worst people that I have ever delt with. Not a friendly man. Told me there are no other parks in the area which was a total lie. The sites are very small. All back in sites. Cats running around. Ants are a major problem in the park. There are a lot of trees in the park that shed a lot of shade but also a lot of seeds and leaves.The only nice thing about the park is Disneyland was with in waling distance. - Mrs Anne

While this RV Park is off of the freeways 215 & 10 with concrete driveways, it is on a railway line and the trains come through quite often. So it is somewhat noisy which is why we kept our windows closed at night and if too warn run the A/C. The sites are back-in and most have concrete pads and (worn) picnic tables. No fire pits and no cable TV so if you want satellite pick a spot clear of the trees. The other sites are sand/dirt. They have 3 small lakes for walking around and for fishing. For amenities they have a pool & spa, shuffleboard, horseshoes, a cafe and game room for TV, reading, pool, and group parties. We would stay again as it is one of our membership parks, but we would not stay for an extended period. - Michael Kibler

This is a private membership park. The rate cited is a Coast-to-Coast member rate. Our site was a fairly level cement pad, with a good-size gravel area next to it for parking the toad and placing the picnic table we snagged from another site. The pad was not long enough for our 41' rig, so we stuck out in the road a couple feet, but that didn't present a traffic problem. The interior roads are plenty wide for navigating a big rig. The trees can present a problem for a rooftop satellite dish on many sites, but there was plenty of room to set up a tripod-mounted dish and miss the trees. The site we were put in was almost on the road. Across the road were the busiest train tracks I have ever seen (or heard). It wasn't unusual for four trains an hour to go by. Fortunately, they blew their horns quite a way down the tracks from the park, but folks who are sensitive to train noise would not be happy. We were not able to get a site in an area further from the tracks, but that could be due to the fact that it was Easter weekend and park members had the park almost full. Very good Verizon 4G data service (18 Mbps) sometimes, 3G service others. Nice big laundry with newer machines. The bath/shower rooms that were in the laundry building were outstanding. Each shower was a private individual room, with a bench and dry place to dress. Park Wi-Fi was not available at our site. We will stop there again when going through the area. - Denali

Nice park, have stayed here several times. People in the office and store are great! The lady in the store went out of her way to be helpful and gave me a free cup of coffee. They keep the grounds clean and didn't gripe about my poodles (of course i picked up after them). Great place for kids; they make you feel at home. The kids can have a safe fishing experience. Close to the Redlands for shopping, about 30 Miles from Palm Springs. I paid a little extra to be up away from the noise of the trains; worth it. Sales lady is VERY nice and not pushy at all! Located in a beautiful area of horse ranches and orange groves. Will return again. - MBlover99

We stayed in a group site, which had 3 seperate hook ups for our campers. Plenty of nice green grass and a lot of room between camp sites. Employees came by every few hours to empty trash cans and the place is very clean. Utilities all worked well. The swim lake is located in the day use section so be prepared to go swimming with 3000 of your closest friends. If using the lake and water slide, avoid the long lines and go get your passes early. Did not use the campground restrooms or showers, prefer the privacy of my own coach, especially when hooked up to sewer. - desertcamper05

We camped here in a 35' class A. Plenty of room for rig and plenty of open space around you. All facilities worked. Restrooms were interesting. Kind of an open air thing with flush toilets and stalls. Served the purpose. Showers were fairly clean and private. Some were pay, some were not. The swimming lake was a nice surprise. Could be better maintained, but was nice during the warm weather. I agree with previous reviewers about the teenage staff. A little too focused on each other and not focusing on what's going on around them. I'd camp here again for a short visit. Not a whole lot to do in the area to keep us longer. - mtshare

This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in! The RV section is apart from the tent section, and all RV sites have full hookups. Sites 1 - 13 are all paved and level pull through sites and there are trees, green grass, and about 30-60 yards between camping sites. The higher numbered sites can be pull through or back in. For families, and located in a different part of the park, there can be found a swimming lake, water slide, 3 fishing lakes and even a Frisbee golf course. This is a true gem of an RV camping place. Reservations can be made online, but to get the senior discount (pay $30 instead of $40), you make the reservation online first and give a partial payment with credit card, then call the office (the number is given on the website) and they will apply the senior discount. - ocoral

Lake Perris is a great park to use during the off season months as it is never overly crowded, and there are plenty of spaces to choose from, even if you don't have a reservation. All full hookup sites are right on top of each other, but dry campsites are spaced well and have lots of trees/brush between. Park staff are friendly and available. Restrooms were clean and stocked ( the park was only about 20% full). Boat rental is available though pricey. Bring your bikes as there is plenty of room to ride. Not sure what it's like here during the summer but will find out! If you like your privacy as we do, dry camping sites are for you. - LISAREAM

We camped here on a really hot weekend in June. The temperature was over 90 degrees, but there was always a nice cool breeze and it was comfortable in the shade. The lake was nice, but since they are draining the dam 20%, you can only use the beach about 1 mile from the campground. On Thursday and Friday nights, we were basically the only campers in our section and it was very peaceful. We are registered with the State of CA as disabled and paid 1/2 price for our campsite. We visited the Orange Empire Railway on the weekend and it was a really nice experience with 2 train rides. The downside: I would not recommend camping here on a Saturday night. The majority of campers were nice family groups, but unfortunately a large gang of undesirables(about 30 people) pulled in at 11:00pm on Saturday and stayed up partying all night: loudly and honking their horn. Talked to the ranger the next day and he said we should have called 911 even though it was not an emergency. The ranger explained that calling 911 is how the system was intended to work to call for loud parties. The ranger was very apologetic for the disturbance. - mammothleslie

This campground is commonly referred to as Luiseno Campground. There are campsites with no hook-ups, just water hook-ups, and electric, water and grey water hook-ups. There is a free dump station for paid campers. You can operate generators between 10AM and 8PM. There are many things to do at this recreation area primarily centered around water activities ie; boating, swimming, fishing (catfish, trout and bluegill). There is also horseback riding and hiking trails. There is also a very nice regional Indian museum within the grounds overlooking the lake. - User1132

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

Middle of the road. No TV reception and Cell signal really weak, (Sprint). Has possibilities, but staff not real friendly. Bathrooms were damaged with vandals (kids). They tried to fix them, but not whole lot of improvement. No toliet paper, holes in walls. One bathroom was fairly new, but others needed improvement. They are doing something with the kiddie pool, but I think time would best be served elsewhere. We are Thousand Trails Members and will not go back even though it is the closest one to LA, unless we can not get in another one. People next to us in a Class A was really upset and wrote them really a nasty letter. Did a lot of walking and Acton was ok: really small town. We went to Palmdale to shop. Showers were broken: had to turn them on and off. - Tampajohn

This looked to be a great place to stay with the access to Pacific Crest Trail and Los Angeles. But to our surprise it was noisy with trains all night and the neighbor's parties (employees). I tried to get my children into the arcade, but it was full of adults yelling and screaming. They did have some interesting attractions; down the road is a big cat compound called 'Shambala' which was very much fun. Thank goodness for Six Flags, 45 minutes away. I just wouldn't recommend this place due to the extended stay people. I could smell marijuana all night the first night and beer the second. Not a very good place for families. - taylorandassociate

Jun 2011 - $50.00
Nice RV park. We were on a non-waterfront site. It was quite small. Not enough room to put out our awning. The waterfront sites look much better. Note however, you cannot swim in the lake at the park. You cannot launch or beach a boat from your site at the park if you have a waterfront site. They have rules against bicycling by kids, but everyone does it anyway. If you are using a site, they give you 10% off marina services (boat rentals, etc). No fire pits at the sites. We couldn't have a fire anyway due to the red alert fire danger. If I went back I would try to get a waterfront site, but the temptation of the water and not being able to swim would probably be too much for the kids. Also Wi-Fi showed as three bars, but we were not able to connect to it. I didn't investigate the issue with the office because we didn't need it. We were in site 38. Not far from the office. - kirkcrawford

Overall, this is a nice RV park in a nice location on Big Bear Lake. On the positive side, you are able to get a lake front site for a reasonable rate. The staff is very friendly and helpful and you can't beat the location for this park. In addition, there is a marina on-site and you can rent boats, jet skis, etc. and receive a 10% discount while staying at the RV Park. However, the sites are a little small and are mostly dirt so be prepared for dust everywhere due to the wind from the lake. In addition, the bathrooms are not very clean. Fortunately, I used the bathroom and shower in the RV or I would have not had a shower for a few days as I would not have taken one here. We have stayed here before and will do so again as there are limited options in Big Bear Lake, and we love the location. - Steve Osgood

This is a glorified parking lot next to a mobile home park with 46 marked spots, two of which are occupied by the office and a small mobile home, so there are only 44 sites available for RVs. Due to a recent ownership change, this park is not allowing any RVs older than 2000. The only thing this park has going for it is that it is the only park in the area. If you want to use the mobile home park's pool facilities, it costs $50 (non refundable). The management recently trimmed the trees located around the edge of the park back to bare branches, so there is no more shade in the park. I paid the monthly rate. The dog area is a small strip of grass in the back, and maneuvering a big rig in the park is possible, but difficult. No tents or anything like them (e.g., easy-up) allowed. The only reason I would go back here is because I need to be in the area for a family emergency. - Hunterman

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
Jan 2014 - $8.00
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.

Absolutlely my worst RVing experience. Run by n beer drinking, power-tripping manager. Spaces too small for 37' RV. Caters to long term residents. Go up the street to Big Bear Shores or Serrano campground. - darthfadar
Jun 2015 - $30.00
We boondocked 2 nights at Serrano Campgrounds.
The campground was full and there were a lot of families with small children camping and having a good time. Although the campgrounds are quite beautiful with abundant trees and scenery, we found the sites to be too close for comfort. Additionally, the campground was very smoky from campfires late into the night and early morning probably due to the nature of the sites being so close together and the younger crowds that stay up late to party.
There are sites with hookups but as this is the closest campground to Big Bear Lake, they were all taken. We walked the park and found the hookup sites seemed to be about the same size as the tent sites.
We peeked inside the bathhouses and they have private showers with locking doors, roomy enough with an area for changing too.
I would definitely suggest this park to younger families with children or college kids, however, we will probably not return to this park because we appreciate a little more solitude and space while camping. - ftrrvr_684

We camped here for two days, spot #42. The park is clean, quiet and park personnel friendly and helpful. The sites are very nice, some are sloped though. Restrooms/showers clean. The roads throughout the park are narrow. Walk to the lake is probably a half mile. There is a small convenience store close by. Bike/walking path runs through the park. Using your Federal Senior Pass card will get you a discounted rate. - User1835

Be aware, Rules at this campground ARE NOT enforced as stated in the park handouts! Quiet hours are not enforced. Too bad pet owners DO NOT pick up after their animals, leaving poop behind on sites. There should be a limit to number of animals per site just like number of people per site (4 large barking dogs per site is absurd). People are so rude and inconsiderate, truly amazing, it can ruin your entire trip. Sites are close. Normally a nice park, but weekend visitors are out of control and think they are only ones around! - nmccaleb

We stayed At Cherry Valley Lakes in Beaumont, CA using our RPI Gold membership. I was happy to find a campground site on a holiday weekend.
I liked the friendly people, nice yard decorations, great kitchen, clubhouse comfortable, escorted to site, full hookups for $10 dollars a night. The cons of the campground are tight sites, unlevel sites, freeway noise. Its camping on a slope. The staff was wonderful. I have no real complaints for $10 dollars a night on a holiday weekend. The fried chicken & cheeseburger meals are terrific for the price. If you attend the ice cream social be prepared for big portions of tasty banana splits, sundaes and floats. The comfortable atmosphere is a breathe of fresh air. I didn't feel like a nameless stranger here after attending a dinner in the clubhouse. My lesson learned here is get out and talk to people. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

Difficult to give this park a higher rating due to some glaring issues. First the good-as an RPI member, the cost was only ten bucks and the location for our trip was great. This is an older park that needs help. The pavement coming in and around the park is like riding a buckboard. It needs a complete replacing. Sites are very close together. Water connection and sewer are RIGHT next to one another and is very unsanitary. Plus the connections are at the very far end of the site making sewer connection almost impossible without an extension. Right next to the busy freeway. Bottom line-great for one or two nights with discount but needs much upgrade for higher rating . - Reddingscott

Mostly pull through sites. Bring your earplugs; this is right on the I-10 and is very noisy. Nice park, great clubhouse, bathrooms, laundry/pool. Nicest staff we've ever met. Breakfast or lunch every day. Happy place. Rate reflects RPI membership. - Cheryl39
Dec 2014 - $20.00
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
Jun 2014 - $23.00
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

Beautiful location, right on Big Bear Lake. However, it's a few miles from town. Each space is privately owned, from basic to elaborately developed. Sites are large. We chose our site based on photos on the website, but we're disappointed to find out the BBQ was out of service, no cable or Internet available (unless you want to walk up to the office, get a password and use theirs). The owners of our site, #55, must of had a hard line sewer connection because the connection was located 12" above grade in a planter bed, making it difficult to drain my tanks. We would stay there again at a different site, only after verifying the all amenities are available and working. - Recycled

Expensive and exclusive site with entirely privately owned pitches, some of which are rented out by their owners. Very smart and well maintained with concrete pitches. Being privately owned the pitches were generally very well cared for, many with manicured gardens. Not proper camping really but very comfortable and a lovely pool. Felt like we had to be on our best behaviour! Stunning location next to the lake. Only irritation was lack of Wi-Fi. - NickG

RPI rate. I have to say this is an interesting RV Park. If RPI had a merit system which RV parks were rated, rather than the available amenities, Oak Glen Resort would be in trouble. It appears the park is having the dollars sucked out of it, and someone is letting it go. The employees are very accommodating, friendly and treat the guest very well. The shower/restroom was clean and looked nice. The individual sites, interior roads are in extremely poor condition. Pot holes, weeds, and just an unkempt appearance throughout the park. Which is split into 2 sections, one for weekend or temporary guest and one for the permanent residents. A sign saying private road end of the resort separates the 2 parks. The Parks web site said it has 182 campsites, which most are in the private residence area, which I have to admit looked like it might be better maintained, which doesn’t say much. The web site also claims it has a restaurant, I didn’t see it or any of the buildings that could hold it didn’t look like a place I would eat at. The park is nestled in a nice mountainous area and they have a tiny village of a restaurant and kiosk, petting zoo, train and some craft stores, nice for the first time but nothing like Julian area, for those who know that area. Overall the employees were very good but I didn’t leave anything there. Wi-Fi is available at $2 per night but I kept getting knocked off and had to re-login. And as an RPI guest which I had to pay an extra $4 service fee? don't understand that. - Zgork

The drive up the twisting mountain road may be scary for some people but it indicated that the place would definitely not be in an urban setting. Upon first look, the place looks very shabby. However, our site was level and very long with mountain and valley views. The trees in our area of the campground were small. In the other area the trees were full grown but this was an area for long term campers and looked like a poor mountain community with plywood add-on porches, etc. We enjoyed the calls of neighboring peacocks who came down from the woods in the day. The campground warned of bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and snakes but we are used to many of these critters as our home is in the desert. There seemed to be several activities for kids including a pool that is open after Memorial Day. Our $13 fee was because we are AOR members. Wi-Fi was $2 a day extra. - oldbroad

Stayed here for a week we'll never be able to live again. What a dump! Restrooms and showers were filthy with beer cans on the ledges and smashed bugs on the walls. No one cleaned restrooms thoroughly the whole time we stayed. Many permanent residence live in the camp separated from visitor campers by a dry creek. You only met them when they came out at night to visit the camp's fulltime bar: watered down drinks and mystery meat burgers. Employees were new and didn't know too much about the area. Long mountain drive into town and civilization. We definitely will NOT stay here again. - BudNietz

Rate reflects senior (60+) discount. Nice assortment of sites, some very large pull through. Threaded water spigots on most but not all sites. Many sites have trees and shade. I picked one which is partially shaded and kept solar panels in the sun. Clean basic restrooms with showers. Good Verizon signal. Was not crowded mid week, but full on weekends. Some traffic noise from nearby road, but quiet at night. Natural setting, very pretty. Summer days can get into the 90s. - tpild

This campground is a nice little find in the hustle and bustle of the O.C. We had reserved a 40' spot (#10), but when we were supposed to move into it we thought it looked small and measured - 31'. A park ranger and the rest of the crew got it all taken care of and put us in #7 and #8, and life is good. We spent 2 nights in #27 which fit our 41' rig and Jeep Wrangler. There are several HUGE pull-throughs, occupied by small travel trailers while we were here. Trabuco Canyon road has traffic during the day, but we didn't notice any noise at all at night. Well paved roads, and lots of trails for walking. We saw plenty of horses, deer, rabbits, squirrels, some acorn woodpeckers, and other animals - a plus since we're in civilization here. Good voice and data signal on Sprint, Verizon, and TMobile, and full speed 4G on our Verizon aircard. The downsides: You will hear generators from some of the other RVs, and people here have no concept of campsite etiquette and will walk right through your campsite without a second thought. - Roaming Together

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

We have been here since Dec 1 (9 mos) due to a major construction project. The owners of the park are very nice & quite accommodating. Park is on the Lake Wuith beach access & dry camping (RV & tents) is available on the beachfront. Sites are very comfortable in size and are grass with mature shade trees. It is family & pet friendly though there is no playground or pet park. There are bathrooms, showers, coin laundry, covered patio, horseshoes, fire pit & picnic area. $425.00 month $150.00 week. Additional cable channels, high speed internet & phone through Time Warner. Basic cable on each site. Close to groceries, retail, restaurants. So. Cal beaches & short drive.

Quiet! Mostly long-termers and full-timers. Best park in Big Bear area for the money. Seven rating for narrow sites and no amenities. Great internet; best ever in an RV park. Lots of cable TV channels. Good dog walking nearby; a block from the lake. Utilities worked. A little tight backing in for 30'+ rigs. Restrooms and showers showed deferred cleaning. Easy drive up from Hwy 10 through Yucca Valley. - LoneWolf
Oct 2012 - $49.00
Plus: Location is in a quiet neighborhood fairly close to the greater Big Bear community. Asphalt interior roads and parking pads. Mature pine trees scattered throughout. Picnic tables and fire rings. The few permanents appear clean and respectful. Large level sites - many are deep enough to accommodate the longest rigs and all are wide enough for slide outs. Extra space between sites (50 feet or so) adds a feeling of privacy. All hookups are easily accessed. Cable and Wi-Fi have good reception. Bathrooms are clean and relatively modern. No charge for using the shower. (Didn't see the laundry room if they have one) Minus: Older very plain RV park having no frills and no pull through sites. No grass or any attempts at landscaping. No office. The manager works out of her RV. Nothing of interest within walking distance. When asked, the manager had no maps of the area. The owner told me Hwy 18 up from Lucerne Valley had lots of switch backs but failed to tell me how Very Steep it is - up to 16% according to the California State Hwy sign. That is a factor that would prevent me from pulling my RV via that route again. Final analysis: Pine Tree RV Park is okay but if returning to the area I would check around to see what the competition had to offer. - JHarpJ

Very short sites, impossible for a 40 footer to stay in your half of sites. Very noisy traffic from every site! Lake is very pretty but few sites have views .

We stayed one week. Dirt ground with very little grass I will assume due the drought. Weekend, the place fills up with locals which all behaved. Sites are short. It seems two spaces should be one. Was not a problem as a small trailer occupied behind our 40 footer so they must manage. No way 2 40 footers could get in. Traffic is loud. People rushing off to work starting at 4:30 Am on tha main road. Sirens etc through the night. No fault of the park. Marina is nice and boat ramp. Security during the weekend. Wifi worked great and we used our antenna. We toured so cal each day, so it met our needs. Would stay here again. - rdmike

We were here in June and it was very hot. The lake was right at our doorstep with geese and ducks. The back-in sites were difficult for many of the bigger rigs - we are 27 feet and got an end-space so lucked out. The grounds are all dirt/gravel and we were glad we had our 'grass' floor mat to keep it outside. The laundry was good, as were the restrooms. There was a very nice pavilion with picnic tables and a store. Town is a mile or two away with a big grocery store and pretty much anything else. A lot of people were here with boats as there is a great boat launch right in the park. Would stay here again. - Cheryl39

The laundry is free and grounds are level and well kept, but there are no trees, playground, or beach. We left for 1 night to stay with family and came back to a massive ant infestation.

The RV wash was very convenient and reasonably priced. The Wi-Fi was finicky. - Bill & Alisen

Beautiful park. Very well kept. We arrived on a Sunday and the "night host" was very friendly and helpful. There did seem to be some long term sites, but all were well kept. Quiet and convenient. The WIFI appeared to be slow at times, and for some reason would lose connection around 1700 everyday. It would come back on after a time. Did not pursue the problem. The cable did not work, but was able to get all of the local channels on our antenna to supplement our satellite. We will stay here again. - vwbluestar

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

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

We spent one night at this park and were not impressed. It was run down with dust and dirt everywhere, along with a large storage area for RVs and other assorted vehicles. Our 'pull-through' space was a pull through; however, had we tried to drive out we would have probably scraped the sides of our coach on trees and bushes. We barely got the slide out while parked. This park had just recently changed ownership, and it appears there are a lot of things that need to be changed and/or upgraded. We will not stay here again. - BankShot

Watch the power in the transient sites. Ours went off and on all night long. Managers tried to tell us it was our surge suppressor, but it's worked fine since. Adequate for a 1-2 night stay. Pay showers, trash cans only at office, which is a long way from the campsites. - David n Karen

This park sits in a little valley. Upon cresting the ridge in approach to the park, one sees scores of RV's parked so closely together you wonder how they can open their doors. Then you realize that is a storage yard. Ha ha. The actual RV park is much more spacious. There is no cable TV but digital antennae reception was good and provided about 20 stations. Water pressure was good, there was shade at my pull through site and the manager's husband guided me to the site in a golf car. I thought the place was just fine for an overnight and would not be hesitant to return. - BlueSkyChili

This was our second stay here. Couldn't get a front row, so ended up in the back row, within 50 feet of busy Pacific Coast Highway. Daytime traffic is quite noisy – especially the world's loudest Harleys that routinely cruise the highway. Night time traffic is quite a bit better. The lack of sewer hookups is disappointing. We prefer another park, but it's closed in January. Bathrooms are moderately clean, but chilly. Site water started off pretty rusty, but cleared up after 20 or so gallons. Hosts and neighbors are as nice as can be, and the dog beach a mile away is fantastic. We'll only be back if nothing else is available. - sdayman

Awesome access to ocean and views. Camp hosts are friendly yet strict, but that just keeps the park in order. Can't beat the experience, plus if you have dogs, you'll love it here. All breeds welcome, other parks will exclude certain aggressive breeds, but this place loves my pit bull, he'll lick you to death. Dog owners, be courteous and always make sure you use a leash and pick up after your dog(s) or else you'll definitely be hearing from the Camp Hosts! - Johnny Cau

Bolsa Chica is basically just a parking lot with electrical and water hookups. There is nothing that separates each site. The thing that makes this campground special is that it is literally right on the beach! The sites are large enough to accommodate slides and park a towed vehicle. And there is a concrete space behind each space to set up chairs and a fire pit. They have a paved bike/walking path that separates the beach sights and the sand which is nice for kids to ride their bikes and play out of the way of cars. Non-beach sites park right along Pacific Coast Hwy so they have traffic noise to contend with. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. Downtown Huntington Beach and Pier are just a couple of miles south and grocery/misc shopping is also close by. - jeremiah29:11-14

Great location next to the pier with breath taking views of the ocean and surf. Only available during the fall, winter, and spring. Reservations are mail in, and first come first served. Plenty of space between sites and pretty level sites. You are camping in a parking lot with water and electric. There is one dump station with easy access. We plan to return in the spring. - 06 Crescendo

Fantastic beachfront camping which is basically a parking lot with hookups. The pull-through sites are nice and wide (plenty of room for big rigs) which is hard to come by at most state beach campgrounds. The location is perfect and is within easy walking distance of the pier and downtown. The doggy beach is about a 1 mile walk. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area. I didn't rate a 10 due to no showers, sewer or Wi-Fi. - socal114

Beach and ocean-front camping in a parking lot. The fantastic ocean view can be blocked unless parked in the front row. Reservations by mail only, well in advance (for weekends). Closed during the summer and during special events. Bicycle rentals are nearby and several restaurants and shops are nearby. The campground is very close to the long pier. Handicapped rate is $50 a night, regularly $60 a night. Dump station has 2 lanes and gets busy at checkout time. The pull-through sites are roomy. It can get a little rowdy. Bikes and pets allowed on the beach boardwalk. There is a dog beach in the area but not really within walking distance. Close to Southern California attractions. Fires are allowed in fire rings on the beach. We will be back as soon as we can get reservations in the fall. - rryan

This RV Park is nothing but a parking lot. Trying to park and getting out was terrible. You can never find the office staff. Our sewer backed up and the 30 amp. didn't work the first night. Yes the beach is across the street but nothing else for miles. It's really not a good family RV Park, good for adults. - BSBren

Nice park close to the beach and bike trail that runs about 8 miles. The spaces are mixed with several long term and short term users. The park provides parking for the Toad and offers full hookup including cable. Very secure environment. - Mikeymini

Nice park right across the street from the beach and just a few blocks from the main pier at Huntington Beach. It's a pretty basic park on a large concrete slab, but it has a nice pool and hot tub area with a sun deck. There is also an indoor room with a pool table and ping pong table, nice lounge chairs, and free coffee each morning. There are ample laundry facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful and gave us some nice suggestions of things to do. There are a fair number of permanent residents here and some of their units are very run down, but there is still plenty of room for nomads like us and the people are very friendly. We were invited to a party for drinks the day after we arrived and people are very nice all over the park. - MitchR

The resort is very nice if you have a site near the water which, of course, costs more. There are many amenities and activities.
We were here for three weeks and will stay again because it is the nicest park in the area but there are some issues. They have posted rules but do not enforce them. Noise beyond quiet hours, kids racing golf carts and motorized mini bikes ignoring posted stop signs and speed limits. The site we were on had a locust tree that dropped leaves, flowers and sap constantly requiring us to clean twice daily and have the RV washed. The RV is still covered in sap.
Very crowded on weekends and parking on street in front of each site not limited to one vehicle per site (or not enforced).
Overall though, a very nice park with many things to do and very convenient location. - Rambleinthebramble

While this campground has a great location right on the bay, with plenty of water sports available, I just can't give it a good rating. It is incredibly claustrophobic in spacing. We could not even extend our awning all the way. Most people had their outdoor chairs and fire pits in the street in front of their RV's because there is just no room in the spots to do so. Kids play in the street despite the fact that there is a beach 2 minutes away. It is so crowded that our neighbors had to move their cars and tow-vehicles in order to let us and others maneuver our trailer into the spot. The people are nice, the bay is nice, but it is just to tight of a space to be comfortable. Really cramped! - ezgator
Dec 2014 - $55.00
We stayed here for a month in a 40 ft motorhome. The park is very old, outdated and the sites are too small for motorhomes with slides. Our site had a broken chainlink fence in the back that make it very difficult to position the coach correctly or safely. We used bath towels to protect our rear light lenses (honestly!). Garbage was left at our site. LOTS of rules, but no enforcement of them. Speed limits are not enforced or is picking up after pets. Parking is a joke. Yes, we took our concerns to management. No, we will not use this park again despite it being so close to our family. The fact that they are on water is keeping them in business. Very disappointed. - Kampy

This park is in an urban area right next to the Long Beach Convention Center. Despite that, it has a nice vibe that is very comfortable. Sites are fairly tight, but fine. There is landscaping to make things pretty. There's a nice pool and hot tub, a little store, horseshoes, and shuffleboard. It's a fairly short walk to the Catalina Express or a dozen good restaurants. It is also right on the waterfront, a bit of a jog from the bay. - Maxine and Cinder

This park is nice resort with a Long Beach harbour. Spaces are nice, with palms and nice lawn in the middle. Jacuzzi and pool are clean. Laundry machine is just $1, the same is drying machine. We came at night and they seem to have very strict policy paying in advance, so the host visited us even at 9PM to solve the payment for nights ahead. Wifi is not for free, you pay $1 a day. But is very slow and most time non-existent. Using very nice words here. Other than that, it is very close the Long Beach lighthouse and harbour, with the bike trail right by the RV park. - Katka

A clean, well-maintained park with lush landscaping. The office staff is efficient and welcoming, and the friendly maintenance staff is constantly working. Perfect location on the bay, and bicyclers will appreciate the extensive Los Angeles/beach bicycle trail that connects outside the gate. We did not give a perfect score because there is a charge for internet and because this was the lowest voltage we have had in 3+ years of full-timing. - User3773

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

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

We had booked a hookup site for our trailer, and a cabin for my in-laws. When we arrived near the front office, an individual was fixing his car there blasting his music so loud, that we knew this probably wasn't going to be a great experience. As we entered the park, there were a lot of old trailers and campers, multiple dogs roaming around, and most people smoking, drinking, and blasting their music. When we entered the cabin, it was musty, small and had old pots in the kitchen to use. We didn't even unhook the trailer. We found the manager right away, a great lady who understood us not wanting to stay here. Would I recommend this place? No way! - kampingfamily

There's a big range of quality from one park employee to another. Some were great; others were total control freak jerks. I guess if you can't get a job as a prison guard, then you apply to work as a park ranger so that you can boss people around. The campground is fairly high on a bluff. Landscaping is natural scrub chaparral, beautiful but no shade really. The campsites are gravel and are absolutely huge. They are mostly level, but bring blocks or have a leveling system. About half of the campground has water and power; the other half does not. There are water views from many of the sites. The beach is nearby, but it's a good half mile down a steep hill, so you might want to drive. Wifi is available, but not guaranteed. It worked fine for us most of the time. - Maxine and Cinder

They allow generators in the non hook up areas and we had three near us running all day long, very noisy. The traffic noise is unbearable too as is the school that is next door. Campers stay up late (past ten) and play music and talk loud. Tons of Glampers and kids running around. People act as though they are entitled, they don't pay attention to the rules or the signs. Saw a sanitary napkin on the floor of the shower and the toilets were very unclean. Showers were cold and two were out of order. Security is very poor, had homeless people walk past our site daily. We never saw a state patrol person drive by. Make sure you put everything away at night. The view is excellent, but who needs all the other headaches. After all, when we camp we want to relax and get away from it all. - The Camper

This is a small state beach campground, really well-designed for maximum ocean views, with beautiful native plant landscaping. There is a trail down to a great beach. Tons to do in nearby upscale communities of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Irvine. The downside was the horrible traffic in the area -- it seems to take forever to get anywhere. I would have stayed longer but the park was booked solid! - rushin river

This is a very large campground that requires a major facelift. Prolific weeds, dirty moldy signs, gravel sites with dirt, and well worn roads characterize this CG. When I entered, the security guard told me to pick my spot and I found a level easy pull-through site with full hookups. The sites are a mixture of dirt and gravel. Be prepared to pay for Wi-Fi (I didn't), fishing ($10/day) , and visitors ($10.00 per person/day). Cell phone was good. Difficult for me to get out of my site because neighbor parked across my exit. Couldn't find him. I won't be back. - Russ60

This RPI Membership Park is located a couple of miles off of the 215 freeway in a quiet area out of the town of Menifee. There used to be a dairy farm bordering the park but it is no longer in business. It is a very large RV Park, 565 sites, with a couple of canals running through it and a pond. There are a lot of amenities; two pools & spas, tennis/pickleball courts, shuffleboard, horseshoes, volleyball, miniature golf, fitness center and playgrounds. The sites are mostly back-in, but they do have a few pull-thru. If you go to the back of the park you can usually find a site that you can pull-thru from the back site so you do not have to unhook your toad, unless it is busy. The sites are gravel and have a weathered picnic table, no fire pit and no cable. If you have satellite you will want to pick a site where the trees do not block your dish. It's a nice park and we would come back again. - Michael Kibler

Nice pullthru, good utilities. Were able to park with toad attached. Site was level. Some shade from trees. Good amenities, including enclosed grass dog area. Good overnight stop, easy on/off from I-10 but far enough away to not have traffic noise. While a little pricey, everything was in good order and worked well, worth it after a long day's trip. We will stay here again. - SW Rick

We spent three nights here primarily to tour Hollywood and go to the Hollywood Bowl. It was a great location. The Hollywood Bowl parking can be a nightmare and we rode the Metro (at Balboa) to and from the Bowl. For $5/person for an all day pass, it was quite the bargain. As other people have noted, the owner is the nicest and hardest working person I have met in a long time. He really takes pride in the park. We have a 24' motorhome and had no problem getting into our spot although our power management system did not like that the electricity was not grounded and we had to plug into an adjoining electrical circuit for power. The Wi-Fi was as zippy as our broadband at home. We will definitely stay here again. - WinnebagoTraveler

Don't come here if your rig is over 24' long. All streets are narrow and sites are short. They have cars parked everywhere. Not a 1-2 night stop over because it took several attempts to get into our spot with our 30' RV. Old park with lots of permanent trailers. Electrical is just an outlet 3" from ground with no breaker. Water faucet is inches away. Cords & cables laying on the ground. After 1 day we had ants. We will not stay here again. - CindyRV

Two sisters in management office are very rude, disrespectful, and unprofessional in duties concerning proper maintenance of the park. R.V. park has severe problem with theft, vandalism, dog feces on grounds. Busy liquor store just outside of entrance gate and across street from S. J. High School, and also farm animals in yard pens located next door to park; this place is anything but quiet. Old R.V. park with mostly disabled long-term residents in older trailers. Don't waste your time or money staying here. It's not recommended no matter how much cheaper the price might be...horrible experience!

Do not understand high ratings on this park. We were booked in another park, but arrived in the area early and decided to try a different park. We had googled Diamond Valley and the computer optics along with the ratings on this site were appealing. After driving 400 miles that day, we arrived with intentions to stay. This park is a typical run down "forties" vintage operation. Most of the units are old, there is detritus everywhere seeming left over the years. There was a small sign designating the admin area, but no one around. In my opinion, this park is everyone's worst nightmare at the end of a long day. Their RV website is misleading and should be disregarded. It is also located in a poorer area of San Jacinto, which is a depressed area to boot. Keep traveling if you are bound for this place. - flugelboneman
