Used this as a dry night rest stop. Internal roads were very poor and not conducive to larger rigs (lots of tight turns and hills). Space was literally just a space with low hanging branches, tight (narrow) space. Pull through requested as it was a simple rest stop. Limited space so had to ask neighbor to move his car so I could make the turn to get out of the space. Space was simple gravel that was worn and mostly dirt. About 3 miles off the frwy but the roads are narrow residential and then rural (narrow and windy) access to the actual facility is not big-rig friendly.
I have a 36ft RV and found it was about as big as you would want for this park. I would not stay here again for the price and lack of facilities and bad roads. - User2967

We had a pull through site, all gravel, no table even though some other sites had tables. The sites are very close together, no privacy. Many permanent trailers here, some with lots of junk around their sites. If you need to do laundry go elsewhere. The washers and dryers require use of a credit or debit card and one of the dryers did not work but proceeded to charge my credit card four times! I spoke to the office people and also called the service number listed on the dryer. Still waiting to hear back after several calls to them. Will be disputing those charges if don't hear back. The website is very misleading on the condition of the park. The best that can be said is that it is quiet with no highway noise. Oh, and be prepared to pay a $20 deposit for the card key to get in the gate, which you get back when you leave. If you want to leave early in the morning you might want to turn in your key the day before as the office does not open until 9:00 am. - trvlkids

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

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

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

We had a little difficulty at first but the staff was very helpful and helped us into our site in no time at all. We enjoyed being so close to the lake and they activities for all. We stayed for a week and will come back in the the spring. - fisage1235

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

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

We retired out of Temecula. We'd driven thru this area many times over the years without realizing there was even a park here (even though it has its own dedicated stop light). When we visit the Temecula area, we have two parks we generally use. Both have shortcomings. A third, our favorite, a little known gem on the shores of Lake Elsinore, was booked solid. So we thought we'd try Golden Village Palms. What a great find! We took advantage of a special rate ($139/week) for a very nice back-in site. (We were given a couple of sites to choose from, which I really appreciated.) The park is huge, with a lot of different types of sites, many recently renovated. This is an 'active adults' park. Kids are allowed for up to 2 weeks so they can babysit their grandparents. Visiting kids are restricted to certain areas & must be supervised. Our site backed up to Devonshire road. Traffic noise could be an issue unless you employ white noise. Wifi was taxed when park was heavily occupied. Our initial 2 week stay evolved into a 3 months (constructing a home in nearby Murrieta). We found the staff to be excellent. The local communities are lower socioeconomic. Nearby Temecula & Murrieta offer a tremendous variety of shopping & recreational activities. If you are so inclined, the outstanding 412 church, associated with Calvary Chapel, is nearby. - biosensai

We stopped here on our way to Arizona to see some friends and ended up cancelling the trip to Arizona and staying for two months! It is a nice park in a not-so-nice city, with lots of lawn areas, shade trees and hedges for privacy.
As others have noted, there is LOTS to do, with pickleball, horse shoes, volleyball, an indoor shuffleboard stadium, three pools and activities indoors to keep anyone entertained and occupied. We were struck by how nice the people staying here are, and met lots of Canadians and American residents fleeing the snow.
We had a great back-in site with three trees and a hedge. One of the fruit trees was in bloom and the smell of the blossoms was incredible. They allow canopies, so we got one, set up our little camp site, with a propane fire pit and chairs and created a little slice of heaven.
In our two months at GVP, we met a number of great folks, some of whom will be life-long friends. We will definitely be back. - Tee Gysin

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

Nice place to stay, when traveling around. Cold nights in the summer, warm days, perfect. All felt good, fishing right next to the RV (certain spots). Beautiful lake view, nice new restrooms, friendly people. - Dutch Robert

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

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

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

We could only give a 3 rating because there was NOT a dump station! The campground is nice and if you like birds: plenty! We were here for one night only. We don't fish, but apparently the fishing is good! - billandme

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

two parts to this campground, the older is mostly dirt with some grass areas and has been load in the past. the new part is modern with concrete pads, A LOT of grass and trees. this is a very nice park and a deal at the price. This is our first choice when visiting family in the area. Wifi is okay but the cable needs to get negotiated... - Sergent Major

I was impressed with this campground. We stayed at the Cottonwood campground and the sites were concrete, long, and spacious. Each site had a fire ring and table. The laundry room was clean as well as the campground. There were much to do at this campground like fishing, biking riding, and walking the trail. Shopping and dining is near by. We will be back. - 2Reese

We made reservations to stay one night, but had to cancel 11 days before our arrival. Riverside county parks has a 14 day cancellation policy within which no refunds are given. This is somewhat different than private parks which either impose no charge or at most charge one night's stay when a cancellation is made a short time before arrival. - RaySc
