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

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

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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

Truly a pleasurable oasis along Highway #15. We stayed in the Cottonwood Section and paid Passport America Rate for four days and full rate for the other three weekend days. The price quoted reflects the average per night overall. Sites here in the Cottonwood Section are wide and spacious. The area is clean and beautifully landscaped and well kept. Kudos to those looking after this beautiful park. Bike/walking trail in Park that goes for miles and numerous golf courses with reasonable prices. I would have given this Park a ten except for the fact that the staff are somewhat rigid and officious about certain things. They had a rather strange process for picking a site which they insisted you strictly adhere to. We were scolded for not doing so. Perhaps a few lessons for staff on how to handle incoming Campers hospitably? Other than that I would highly recommend this Park. The Park is quiet except for one barking dog (and owner who seemed to encourage it) and a few trains passing in the distance. The fact that they give four weekdays at Passport America price is just a great bonus. Come, stay at Rancho Jurupa. We certainly will again. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed in the newer Cottonwood campground portion of the park. All of the sites are very well spaced from each other, level and have plenty of grass around, with the exception of the outlining southern and western sides of the park, which are dirt. There are many trees, however they are still rather small for adequate shade. Give them a few more years to mature and they'll be great shade trees. The water, power, sewer and Wi-Fi (which all worked well) are included in the price for the Cottonwood section. There is a well equipped onsite store, a small waterpark and mini-golf course for the kids. There's also a small man-made lake within walking distance, which is regularly stocked by the county if you're into some fishing. Weekdays are generally easy to get a site, however weekends seem to fill up pretty quick with local RV'ers out for a quick weekend getaway, so make your weekend reservations well in advance. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Site number 69 is level. Our price reflects the cost for an electric and water only site. If you want to connect your sewer line that's another $5. Dumping stations are available. Passport America is not available on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or holidays. The park seems to be well maintained, with the exception of the showers. They are in sore need of a scrubbing with bleach. The walls are filthy. The wife says her the shower drain was plugged. On both sides, the water was scalding. To the point where it was necessary to almost turn the single knob control off for the shower to be useable. There are no hooks in the communal dressing area or next to the showers. While the sinks had hot water, there were no mirrors. Hundreds of coots (the bird type) were here during our visit, and while they are interesting to watch, they are the source of many land mines. As stated in other reviews this is a very kid friendly park. Miniature golf, playground equipment and nice lakes. I suppose I would come back, but wouldn't bother to buy a shower token.

We stayed in the new Cottonwood section and will ditto the observations of the previous post reference the unfinished sites. Lots of dirt tracked into your coach and if it rains that changes to mud. Also, having stayed here on previous occasions I have commented about the low voltage during hot weather. Well, that hasn't changed. The first day here voltage was down to a critical stage for running A/Cs and possibly burning up other appliances. Recently a rally at the park during hot weather had to resort to running their generators to keep cool. Complaints to the County of Riverside about these problems are referred to the park management who act surprised about the electrical problems. I can assure you they are aware but electric to ignore it. Cool or moderate weather the park is great but if A/C weather is in the forecast, be aware.
