17 Parks near Pomona, California
Jul 2016 - $55.00
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

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 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

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

Campground is closed, new houses are being built in its place, very sad. - rroch

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

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

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

The big plus of this park is its roughly 4 block walk to Disneyland walk-in entrance on Harbor Blvd. Park has a large number of long term residents in back of park. All very pleasant folks. Short stay is to front of park. Sites are short and price included a second site to park our Toad.
The negative is WiFi that is very weak and often disconnects. Cable requires use of Time-Warner cable box. The box I was provided did not work. Box is not easily installed. Desk folks did not seem to really care whether WiFi or cable was an issue. - Cpat

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

Another one bites the dust. Web site says closing for renovations February 2, 2014. Arrived last night and employees are all fired as of that date. Property has been sold to Disney for an employee parking lot. Enjoying our last stay at this great park. Nice pool and hot tub. Has a game room; the kids like the vending machines. Only a few RVs still here. Disney nightly Fireworks are awesome, framed by palm trees. - Pumpman2

First, we would definitely return to this park again, but there were some surprises. First, our campsite was not level, not a big problem by any means, but was surprised we had to pull out the levelers. The biggest disappointment was the Wi-Fi that was non-existent in the RV. If you need to have Wi-Fi inside your RV then this may not be the place for you. In today's world there is absolutely no reason not to have working Wi-Fi, if you advertise it. But the hot tub was great after a day walking in Disney. - shayob

Great location for Disneyland; about a half mile walk or pick up the $5/day shuttle. Not a great place to just hang out around your campsite. Sites are pretty close together. "Resort" is just a large concrete parking lot with strips of grass between sites. There are two small fenced areas for dogs, not enough room to exercise a large dog. Pretty quiet and safe considering its located at the intersection of two major streets (Ball & Harbor). Nice pool area. - Lizzy P

Very clean. Easy to park. Concrete lots and level. Paved roadways. Friendly staff. Rate is high, however it includes a 33.00 bed tax for each night. We walked to Disney each day for three days. 1.4 miles walk ... uphill each way :-). There is a 5.00 shuttle available. We just rather walk. - Trekking

This was a clean well cared for RV Park. We stayed here 3 nights. The staff was very nice about letting us pick which site we wanted. It's very convenient to Disneyland. The pool was small, but the kids loved it. There was no playground, which they would have enjoyed. We stayed here with our grandchildren. - Logan995

Look for the park on a small street off busy Anaheim Blvd. No park signage on the corner. Check in can be difficult because of traffic and parking. Trees were trimmed out of the way. The back in site was concrete wide enough for table, and our awning and slides, Our site had water and electric to the rear. The sewer was mid ship. We had grass along our sides and a small grass lot to our rear. The cable TV is digital only; no analog. Our TV watching was over the air. Wi-Fi was good. Individual shower/bathroom was completely tiled and clean, as were the heated pool and hot tub. There are complimentary muffins & coffee in the morning. We will stay here again. - feral cat

Everything else aside, the staff at Orangeland are awesome
From the smiling folks behind the counter to the awesome guys who lead you to your site and help you get parked correctly, everyone we encountered went out of their way to be helpful, friendly, and pleasant
We had a deluxe pull through space and our 43' pusher just fit although there is a parking space for a toad as well
The park has been there a while and the space sizes reflect the days before mega rigs with 4 big slides; between the width of the space and the trees you will probably not be able to put out your awning
The upside is the trees provide a good bit of shade throughout the day
Getting out when we left entailed a small amount of scraping against a hedge that came up to the edge of the pad
The grill area was great and the guys in the golf carts come out and light the grills for you
The grills are professional and huge and you could grill a rack of brontosaurus ribs
The entire park is neat, clean, groomed, and spotless
The pool is crystal clear as is the spa/hot tub
The store has lots of RV supplies, hardware, souvenirs, dry goods, staple foods, cold and freezer foods and the prices aren't bad
They offer a daily shuttle service to Disneyland/Disney Adventure Park for just $3.00 both ways with several departure and return options
Utilities were all fine but make sure you have a water pressure regulator
The staff tells you up front the pressure is high
This park was a highlight of our trip and if I was ever in the area I would not hesitate to stay there again. - 3browns

Fabulous fresh citrus to pick everywhere. Great staff. Our truck needs repair, extending our stay an unexpected 8 days. They moved our 5er with forklift to a new spot. This place may be a bit pricey, but great! - Ken Camp

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
