1 Park near Riverside, California
Apr 2015 - $26.00
It was quite a surprise to find a very nice county park in the middle of cities and highways. We chose to stay in the older Lakeview section. We were able to go and pick our spot and then come back and pay. We chose a spot at the back, away from the lake and family area. Even though it was only a dirt parking pad it was very level. There was a lot of room between the spaces as well.
The park is very dog and kid friendly. There are packed dirt paths where you can walk or the children can safely ride bikes. There are the 2 lakes that have been mentioned and a water feature that the kids can play in.
We only stayed overnight, but if we have to come back to the SoCal area, we would stay here. - skeats

Beautiful park. One of the nicest we have been in. Only problem is we were in the new back row and not good for a 5th wheel. The outlets are on the wrong side. Otherwise, very nice place. - snowchick

This County Regional Park is located about a 15 minute easy drove off I-215. It has two loops: Cottonwood and Lakeside. Cottonwood is the newer section and Lakeside is older. We stayed in Lakeside as it has more shade trees. All sites have a fire ring and picnic table. There are two fishing lakes stocked with trout and catfish. There is a really nice water play area for the kids, mini golf, and trails for bike riding or walking, with a nature center close by.
We've stayed here twice and always enjoy ourselves. It's nice to find a place where campfires are allowed. We had no problem with our 36 foot RV as the sites are large and wide enough for opening the slides.
My only complaint is noisy campers after quiet hours. There are at least 5 camp hosts (we were camped across from them) and we could clearly hear a group of people yelling and shouting from quite a distance away. This went on until midnight and if we could hear them I know the hosts could hear them, yet nothing was done. I enjoy hearing people and children having a good time but there are quiet hours for a reason and I appreciate campgrounds that at least attempt to enforce their own rules.
As this is close to home it's a nice little get away and we will go again. It's usually filled every weekend during the summer months and hard to get into so make reservations. - Mjoseph320
