This RV park has been in existence for 4 years, and is still a work in progress. It is very rustic with no pavement. Staff is friendly, and helped me back into site #14. Eventually there will be a 1 acre fishing pond. The hole has been dug, but they will need to line it so it will hold water, because the soil is decomposed granite, and very porous. Near the Mt. Baldy ski area, two nice restaurants, hiking and mountain biking trails. Set at about 4,500 feet elevation in the Angelus National Forest with views of Mt. Wilson to the west, and Mt. Baldy to the east. - chockwald

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

We decided to become members of Resorts of Distinction and this was the first park we visited after joining. Once a member, there are no charges associated with camping--they list a $3 charge for cable TV hookups which are available in most of the park. Really nice "park model" cabins are available throughout the campgrounds for a charge of $49. We were there on a weekend and there were a number of scheduled activities both for adults and kids, excellent live music, a discounted buffet style dinner, and a DJ in the evening in the restaurant, which also features a full bar and an adult center with an adults only pool.
We found a beautiful grassy site on one of the two lakes, and enjoyed beautiful views of the mountains and the lake. There were a fair number of campers fishing in the lakes--we saw a few catfish and trout.
The area is resplendent with trees of every kind, willow, cottonwood, pine, oak, crepe myrtle. This campground is very park-like as opposed to seeming more natural and rural. There is a lot of cultivated grassy area, although only in a small percentage of the campsites. There is an Adult center, a Family Center, a General Store, a restaurant, a reception area and an adjacent grassy area where vendors set up their wares during music events. Participation was high at the music event, and the mood was very cheerful--something we don't always see at campgrounds. The campground has many installed wi-fi stations to provide free wi-fi throughout the park, which seems quite easy to access. Unfortunately due to recent fires in the area, the wi-fi was not working at all. We have access to Sprint, Verizon and ATT on our cell phones and tablet, however, there were a high percentage of areas where we could not get cell service at all. - Joy of Life!

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

This is an older KOA. The very friendly staff checked us in quickly. The interior roads are tight as are the sites. A close tree prevented me from using our awning and if I were able to use it, it would have hit my neighbor's rv. The utilities worked ok. There is no cable and I couldn't use my satellite because of trees blocking. I was able to get an OTA signal. There are other sites on the other side of the park that seem larger but are mostly taken by long term folks. The best thing about this park is you can access events located at gate 9 thru a gate. In our case the SoCal rv show. - Recycled

I would never stay here again even though it is so close to the S Cali area. I realize there is not to many campgrounds to pick from but we have had better in the area many times.
For the price $55, the spots are very narrow to the point that room extensions will be pretty close to the camper next door. Forget the use of the awning or table, bbq etc.
Seems like it was mostly the local crowd from the LA area. The pool sounded and looked like the big attraction.
Prior to leaving I warned the office of a car parked in the roadway many days before we were to leave. This car parked in the roadway would make our exit impossible without backing out of our pull thru site. The office staff was useless when I voiced concern well in advance of our departure date.
Sure enough 8 am I needed to pull out and the car was parked in the roadway yet again another night.
Had to disconnect the towed and back out because of lack of management control of the campground.
Never again when such good camping is a stone throw away if you plan ahead. - 45Ricochet

They do not pre-assign site numbers. Sites are pull-thru but very close to the neighboring spot. They do have double hook-ups in each space so you pull in from either direction. We were on end spot and had a nice patch of grass, but sprinklers came on full blast at 7 a.m. for 45 minutes (in a drought). Soaked everything we had sitting outside and couldn't get out of our RV without getting soaked. Complained to 4 people working in park and all of them claimed it was not their responsibility and that I'd have to tell their boss. Wood fires are not allowed but propane can be used. - mosyn

We have stayed here before, in 2010 in our former Class A. The location, on top of a flat hill between the 10 and 60 freeways and just off the 57, is very good because even though it's far from LA, you can get there easily via freeway. The view from the hill are absolutely spectacular.
The spaces are very spacious, with lots of trees, lawns, and small ponds. There are lots of permanent rigs here, but lots of space for the transients like us. Unfortunately, WiFi is best near the entrance buildings, not so good in the spaces. All amenities are available, but we didn't use them so can't report on restrooms, showers, laundry, etc. We were on a pad that had a picnic table and fire ring, which we didn't use. We only needed 30 amp, but I'm sure 50 is available. I don't remember the lot number or price we paid, but it seemed reasonable.
The physical location is the prime advantage. Yes, it's 30 miles from Pasadena, but you can get there easily. We loved waking up to the gorgeous views of the mountains. We'd stay here again. - MargaretB

We might have never decided to venture so close to LA without a friend telling us about this park. The sites are very spacious and have paved parking spots with lawn surrounding. We did see one skunk in the evening, but he was not interested in us. There are large sites for big rigs and most, I think are back-in. We were very comfortable there, but we did pick up some ants. Watch your hoses and power lines. We found that Bon Ami or Conmet will send them packing. - Jack Hartman

Convenient location off Highway 10, with a guard at the entrance. We stayed in space #A97. With a BearExtender WiFi booster, we got WiFi about 60% of the time. Pretty park with full hookups. Public golf course about 2 miles away. No view at our spot, but we would stay again. - Nevadatude
May 2015 - $50.00
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

Great spot for a overnight. Some sites long enough so you don't have to disconnect. Dog friendly, Utilities worked fine.
Will stop again. - silverado

Park is clean and quiet even with permanent and long term quests. Security gate is closed at night. Facility has pool, hot tub, pool table room, library and club room. Club room only appears to be open to rv clubs. Restroom/showers are minimal. Two showers, sink and toilet. Wifi is through Tangonet. Slow most of time. No cable and very limited access to channels. Some sites have trees so rv's need to be really careful when pulling in and out. Saw Fifth Wheel scrape roof and tear off vent cover. Sites also have metal poles by outlets. Need to careful when opening slides. - MHexcursions

This is only an OK overnight stop RV resort. It does not have WiFi, no cable (and no channels over the air) and no table or BBQ pit. Just a site, that was also not level. If you just want a place to stop on your way to Southern California, it would work. But that is about all. - RVpartyanimal

ANTS, flies from the livestock and to top it off, the site dump station was plugged. Didn't discover that until I pulled the black water handle! Site was un-level asphalt. Lot's of dirt surrounding the site. Ample space from your neighbor and plenty of grass play area for children. We've been here several times but didn't remember the ants and flies, but the dump station forces us to stay away. - SD75mac

Have stayed here before. Large Sites with tables and fire pits. Utilities worked fine. Verizon strong. Dog friendly, Kid friendly. Plenty of grass, fishing available. Would have graded higher, except ANTS!! Make sure you spray hoses, electrical cords, jacks, tires with ant spray. Some use Comet Powder Pot cleaner around RV. Office will spray area if asked. It is a beautiful Campground. No Wi-Fi or cable. Over the air TV available. - silverado

I would give it a 10 if it had cable TV and Wi-Fi. We had a pull through and was level but some sites the picnic table is on the wrong side. The laundry was good, it is in the open. - hotpepperkid
