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. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice regional park. Good value. Not many campers Sun through Thursday. Packed on Friday & Saturday. Two man made lakes that are stocked with trout. Good fishing. This is an excellent, reasonably priced campground if you are staying in this area. We stayed a week. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Fabulous county park with scenic and roomy RV sites. The newer Cottonwood loop is ideal for large RV's. Back in sites on the perimeter are huge but don't have grass. Interior sites are also large and surrounded by grass. Usually booked on weekends but no problem getting in during the week even without reservations. Well run, clean county park with lots to do. Will stay here again. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

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. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

A county park that is really great. Older section, Lakeview, has gravel roads and pads, some E/W, some FHU. Close to lake stocked for fishing. Newer section has paved roads, concrete pads, newest pedistals, all FHU. Excellent facilities for kids. Only complaint is that CG Hosts' sites are quite unkempt. Rest of park is tidy and well maintained. Park cable does not work. They tell you in advance and on website. Good Verizon signal. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.
Great downtown area nearby. Restaurants, museums, etc.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. There are 3 rates here: inner circle of the Lakeside Campground - water and electric (no sewerage) for $25, Lakeside by the lake with full hookup $30 and Cottonwood Campsite, a short distance away with full hookup and WiFi at $35 (before PA). We stayed in a lakeside site (#5)...be warned if it rains many of these lakeside sites will flood. The camp was quiet and quite empty. It is popular with fishermen but we were dismayed to see the amount of litter we found when we walked around the lake. Also we picked up a mountain of discarded fishing line and hooks and saw 5 couts who had line entangled around their legs. We didn't use the toilets or showers (tokens required). The waterpark and mini golf play areas would be great for kids in the summer. There is a bike riding trail that goes for miles along the Santa Ana River. Head south as it takes you through parks as opposed to heading north which goes through industrial areas. We found the staff friendly and helpful and we'd stay here again.

We have stayed at this campground several times. It is a great open area with big-city shopping and attractions nearby. Sites are level and hookups are easy, but WiFi is available only in the Cottonwood loop, where it's all paved and the facilities are newer. The price there is about $10 a night more. The only problems we've ever had are the late night parties. This seems to be a popular place for friends to gather and party safely, because they don't have to drive anywhere later. Things get pretty quiet after 10 p.m., though. So it's not really that big of a problem. It's an easy and fun place to camp for families, because there is a water park playground full of sprinklers and a miniature golf course. It's very interesting to see what can be done with reclaimed water here. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We camp here a lot and have always enjoyed the cottonwood campground area, which is the newest part with full hook ups no tent camping in this area. We found a downside to this campground a couple months ago on one of our trips there and that is to be sure to lock up your valuables real good, there is a lot of theft going on at this campground. We had all three of our bikes locked up and they cut the chain and stole them all. We were able to locate one of them in the woods, my husband followed their trail and found a homeless encampment down there. There was all kinds of stolen property, we informed rangers they were so nice and helpful and explained to us how hard it has been to get them out. Great campground just keep your goods put away at night! We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Stayed here a few years ago, not long after it opened, and it was much nicer then. Two-tier park, with a more expensive deluxe area with nice showers adjacent to a cheaper down-at-heels area (where we stayed) with shabby coin showers and quite poorly tended grassy areas. The woman in the office also seemed a bit brusque. The park, other than the campground, however, is quite pleasant. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is one of the most unwelcoming parks at which I have ever camped. When we arrived, we were told repeatedly that we had to check out no later than 1 pm, because there was a large group taking over the park the next day. Which is fine, but jeez, once is enough; I get the message. We were also required to provide a driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance--I'm surprised they didn't ask for a blood sample. The campground was divided into two sections; the $25/night section was dirty, ill-maintained, and had the filthiest and most depressing toilets and showers I have ever seen at any campground. The $35/night campground looked to be much better maintained, and was set apart in a fenced-off section of the park. I really did not enjoy our trip to Rancho Jurupa and will not return.

This is one of the loveliest parks I have stayed in and I have stayed in many. It is a large county park with many old trees and a small lake. I stayed at the Lakeview section that with a Passport America discount was only $12.50 a night for water and electric plus a dollar a day for my dog. There is an easy access dump station. It would have been $17.50 for full hookup. There is a view of the lake from this campground as well as snow capped mountains and dozens of little black ducks that came into the RV area to peck around for food. The restrooms and laundry room (and only a dollar each to wash and dry!) were spotless and the laundry room has new front-loading washers. It is a short drive to downtown Riverside --and the historic Mission Inn which is a must see while you visit here. The time for the Passport America rate is limited so if you plan on using it, check availability. My one complaint is that the PA site says the park has propane and I planned on filling up while here. However, the only propane is the Blue Rhino trade in tanks that they keep in the store. There is a Shell station several miles away that has propane but getting there from the park you need to make an easy left turn and pull into the parking lot next door which has an easy turn around and then turn to the right and into the station facing the right way for the propane. I would definitely stay here again; I wish I could stay all winter long. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This was our first stay at this park and I was impressed by how clean and well maintained it was. Very long sites with grass between them. A nice view of Mt. Rubidoux from the campground, and you can hike up the mountain for great exercise. A little patio at the site would have made it perfect. I will stay here again.

The park has two loops. The oldest loop has more trees and is closer to the lake. The newer loop has more grass and has larger sites. We stayed in the newer loop. The sites are large and there are some pull through sites. It is nice and clean and has lots of area to walk the dogs. There is a big Sports park across the street. It is a great urban campground. The lake is stocked. I did see people with nice stringers of fish. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Extremely nice park. We got partial hookups electric and water. There is a nice little lake with coots, ducks, herons, and other waterfowl. We will definitely stay here in the future. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed in the Cottonwood section for 2 weeks around Christmas. This is a very nice campground with lots of things to do. A water park in the summer, nice fishing pond, several play areas for the kids, a putt-putt golf course, frisbee course, general store, nice views, cabins and walking trails etc. I would have stayed longer but they have a two week max stay. Watch out for the sites in the Cottonwood campground in the 240-261 numbers on the east side. They don't have grass and the hook-ups are on the wrong side for trailers.
