Small little fishing lake. I enjoyed this park. Had a good time. The park was easy to navigate. The spaces with hookups were easy to use. The over appearance was good. It's what you would expect from a small fishing lake. Everything I used worked fine. - frosty316

Overall a fair place to camp or rest for a couple of days or so, if you can become accustomed to the swarms of flies and the smell of the dairy farm close by. I don't believe that the lake(s) have been stocked for fishing in a long time. The manager was friendly and courteous enough to make it all worthwhile for a short period of time anyway. But once again, similar to the situation at "Diamond Valley" park--There are
predominantly long-term or "permanent" residents here that have allowed the general maintenance & appearance of the park to slowly degrade to the point of being falsely Identified as a "shantytown". - Mark Yamahammer

Rate is Passport America. This is an older place that is primarily a fishing park. The is a lot of dirt and very little grass. Showers are pay for use. Lot of full time residents. - Tampajohn

Old facilities unkempt, roaches are an epidemic, homeless on property, management not available after 5pm and weekends, gate code same for all (including previous evicted tenants), tenants are hard working and quiet (scared and continually threatened by management). Most sites had problems with hook up boxes, not all working. Old abandoned trailers and Park models. Stay at another park. - D Mummy

Diamond Valley RV Park advertises itself as a renovated park. There are tall weeds everywhere and old abandoned trailers.The showers were dirty, management rude and somewhat hostile. Not as advertised. - frosty316

Two sisters in management office are very rude, disrespectful, and unprofessional in duties concerning proper maintenance of the park. R.V. park has severe problem with theft, vandalism, dog feces on grounds. Busy liquor store just outside of entrance gate and across street from S. J. High School, and also farm animals in yard pens located next door to park; this place is anything but quiet. Old R.V. park with mostly disabled long-term residents in older trailers. Don't waste your time or money staying here. It's not recommended no matter how much cheaper the price might be...horrible experience!
Be smarter than us and go somewhere else. - Mark Yamahammer

Rate is Passport America. Can accommodate RV's up to 30'. This is hard seal camping in a secure, gated carpark at the back of a large mobile home complex. The complex is clean and tidy and the people friendly. Full lookups but the restrooms nearby were locked. We were asked if we were self sufficient for restrooms and so I don't know if they are ever used. A pristine pool and jacuzzi are open to RV'ers and you are able to use the showers and restrooms here. Laundry facilities available. You need to check in the office first, show vehicle registration papers and ID, and pay a $50 refundable deposit for a gate opener to the RV section. It isn't a destination stop but more than adequate for a place to stop while passing through to somewhere else. We would stay here again. - Monaire Corporati

I had heard a lot about this place so decided to check it out. This might have been a nice place at one time but for the most part it is pretty ghetto. Apparently lots can be owned and at that point anything goes. Trashy lots, old rvs, roads and concrete in serious disrepair. One guy even had a pickup on blocks apparently overhauling it complete with oil and grease everywhere. Dogs runs are awful. The smell of urine takes your breath away. Most places set sprinklers in these areas to freshen the area but not here. Sites are a hodgepodge of gravel and concrete. Utilities ok but internet awful any time of day. Lots of little houses on lots, many with for sale signs so that might tell you a little bit about the place. The overall facility is huge but over a third of it is unused as it appears they try to cram everyone; long term and overnighters in one end. They do have lots of activities. We won't be back. - rustandmoss

I'm staying as a long term camper and received a $600.00 per month rate with water, sewer and cable tv... Excellent location with all community services and needs nearby... - Deal Breaker

Rate is the daily average based on a weekly special of $186. Very nice, well-maintained park mostly populated by winter snowbirds. Most sites are back-ins, fairly wide level gravel with concrete patio and asphalt spot to park the car. There are a couple of rows of long pull-throughs that appear to be used for short-termers and rallies. Hookups worked well, including cable and wi-fi. Everything well-maintained. Beautiful central recreation area with multiple pools and spas, very nice clubhouse, fitness center and laundry. Although the park is great, there is not a lot to do in Hemet. - Ray Z

This park is huge and right in the middle of an extensive retail area. Grocery shopping, fast food, movie theater all within short walking distance. There was a complimentary "Harvest Feast" the week of Thanksgiving that was catered, and pleasant. Lots of activities going on all the time: poker nights, shuffleboard, cribbage, craft night, etc. The new pickle ball courts are really nice. The pool is heated, and the hot tub is large, deep and covered -- enjoyable in any weather. The showers are large and clean, and the residents are friendly. There is a mix of short term, long term, and permanent tenants. Some of the spaces have been improved with park model style units and landscaping that looks professional. There are also some older rigs that look like they haven't been moved in a decade. Lots of snowbirds, some of which have been coming to this place for 15+ years. If we could have afforded it, we would have stayed through the entire winter. Sites are close together, but have paved patios and an extra parking space for your tow vehicle. Some sites have a storage shed available as well. We didn't pay for the Wi-Fi, but our Sprint coverage was excellent. - Fezzik_Mallard

I stayed here with a group. The park is older but they are working on it. They are currently converting back-to-back sites to pull-throughs. The sites are a bit close. Close to stores and restaurants. We will return. - TripleE

Note that the nightly rate reflects a monthly rate of $550 divided by 30, because there is no way to enter a monthly rate in the review. We stayed here for a month during our recent move from CA to OK. This is an older park, but it is well maintained. All sites have nice concrete patios and there lots of trees, providing for a pleasant environment. There are a number of full-time residents and folks from colder climates who winter here. The park is within walking distance of shopping and restaurants, making it very convenient. They provide free Time Warner digital cable with great TV reception, but free WiFi is only available in the club house. Since we were staying here for a month we subscribed to high speed Time Warner internet at our site for around $50, giving us pretty much all the technology in our trailer that we had at home. We would definitely stay here again. - The Herm

Here's the pros, electric works 50amp and 30 amp. Lots of sewer smells from vents and long term residents with old rigs scattered around the park! We stayed here 2 winters and probably won't be back! The pool decking is dilapidated and covering falling off! Men's bathroom has Black Mold all through the cabinets. When you take a shower, water fills up and you have to stand in dirty as drains are very slow. Asphalt in entire park is crumbling and you will constantly track it into your rig. Several RVers have had their bicycles stolen over a 4 month period, lots of homeless people outside on streets of Hemet. The spa pool is old and not very clean, overall not a great RV experience. Probably will never return as no improvements at all over a years time as we were told there would be. - seaguy

This park was supposed to get a major upgrade from the owner of the day but due to a legal issue the ownership changed. Resort was the name given by previous owner and referred to what the park was going to be redeveloped into. This didn't happen and the park is inhabited mainly by low income people. There are also thefts occurring and stories of drug dealing. The spaces are tight and the sites and roadways are run down. The manager is pleasant and helpful, but doesn't have a clue about what snowbirds and winter escapees are looking for in a resort. - Britcanuck

NOT a resort! Almost nothing for activities, save for a puny bingo game on Wed. nights and an ice cream social (costs a buck, two for a root beer float) on Saturday. I realize it is summer, but what 'resort' doesn't have activities? The clubhouse has no air conditioning, RV spaces are tiny and close together, very few trees so no shade, mostly permanent residents, many old dilapidated units, several old mobiles located in park. Manager is pleasant enough, but assistant is an admitted pothead who is rude and complains constantly about how she doesn't have enough time to do all the work they demand from her. Although the facilities are clean, it is more a place that caters to low-income permanent residents who have nowhere else to go. They should be ashamed to call this place a resort. - Traveler112349

This was a very sad RV park with nearly all of the occupants also residents. The place where they put us an 'overnighter' was between 2 broken down motorhomes. One had trash, flat tires and a rusted out car and some other vehicle under a torn tarp; the other side we had a very worn trailer with 3 motorcycles, a few rusted vehicles and clutter all around. The place simply did not feel safe. We had planned to stay 3 nights but left after just one. They were very good about refunding our money. There were a lot of down and outters, tattoos, smoking, obvious drug users, etc. hanging around in the park. Other places in the park were well-maintained but we weren't put there. It was full. There was a gate key given to us to use so they are aware of security. It's just a bad area all around there. I understand there is new management trying to improve the park. We will never stay there again. - toccata

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

Not really a full review after only 24 hours here, in the winter, but the campground is quiet and looks clean and well-maintained and I'd definitely return.
There are some things I wanted to mention because I did not see them elsewhere:
(1) Verizon service is good throughout the whole park.
(2) This park is not really in Banning itself, but 12 miles up the winding mountain road toward Idyllwild. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is not slightly scary to get to.
(3) Dig out your jack pads before you come, because the sites are asphalt (wish I'd planned ahead!)
(4) The sites are laid out in an unusual pattern, with groups of both back-in and pull-thru sites in short "nodes", with lots of grassy spaces between nodes. It strikes me that this is one of the best arrangements I've ever seen for family groups with multiple RVs, or small groups traveling together.
(5) The sewer connections are exactly 3" in diameter and threaded on the outside. I had nothing - including my 4-in-1 slip adapter - which would fit these. I guess you need a rubber seal connector and that's the only thing that works? Just come prepared.
As with Thousand Trails parks, you pick your spot. But when I called the office to give them my site number, they refused to take it over the phone. She said I had to give them that information in person?!
I have no toad and it's a long walk back, so I guess they'll have to live without it. That's been my only negative experience here. - Karen On The Road

Very clean park with over 800 camping spots, two pools one for children and one for adults, bar, resturant and snack bars at each pool. I dont recommend camping here in August due to the heat. We will be back. - snarlin

This is a membership park. It's in a great location, a huge campground, plenty of area for walking, lots of trees and grass, plenty of birds if you like to put out feeders, nice sized spaces with good wifi (for a fee). One of our favorite spots when in California. It's steep and winding getting to and from the park, but worth the trouble to get there. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

The office hours are 8:00 to 4:00, so we arrived after hours. We were led to our campsite by the security person, who was very accommodating, but seemed confused where to park us. There are a lot of untrimmed trees, so scraping branches on your rig is likely. The sites are very narrow, and we were unable to put out all of our slides. The one slide that we did put out was approximately 10 inches to the slide next to us. Our neighbor on the other side of us had a torn up tent trailer, which appeared had not moved in years. Tongue of tent trailer was all rusty, and their car was not able to tow. The netting was ripped up and blankets were hanging out the end, so a blue tarp was put up to cover the bedroom area. There was a play pen set up inside of this tent trailer, with 3 little kids running around in diapers, and also 2 dogs, with dog poop not picked up all over. It was obvious that this family lived in this campground year round. We will not return as I do not want to be subjected to seeing this. Thankfully we were only there one night. - Punkybk

This, at one time was a beautiful park but permanent residents have taken over, and the park looks tired and run down where the RVs are parked. Sites are very close together. Long way to sewer connection which is just pressure inserted, not screwed in. The check-in office, you don't go into. You slid your information and money through an opening. Around the ponds it is quite lovely. The pool and spa look well kept up, few activities, laundry facilities appear quite clean. Website is misleading. Supposed to be a membership club, but freeway sign advertises RV parking $10/night. - LJ Myers

We stayed At Cherry Valley Lakes in Beaumont, CA using our RPI Gold membership. I was happy to find a campground site on a holiday weekend.
I liked the friendly people, nice yard decorations, great kitchen, clubhouse comfortable, escorted to site, full hookups for $10 dollars a night. The cons of the campground are tight sites, unlevel sites, freeway noise. Its camping on a slope. The staff was wonderful. I have no real complaints for $10 dollars a night on a holiday weekend. The fried chicken & cheeseburger meals are terrific for the price. If you attend the ice cream social be prepared for big portions of tasty banana splits, sundaes and floats. The comfortable atmosphere is a breathe of fresh air. I didn't feel like a nameless stranger here after attending a dinner in the clubhouse. My lesson learned here is get out and talk to people. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

We've stayed here before. It is located adjacent to a high school, on Friday nights you may experience football games. But it was not objectionable. When I called for the reservation, I was given space 70. Upon arrival (after the office was closed) we were switched to site 73. Arrived at site 73 to find it previously assigned to another RV. To solve this issue, we pulled into the best suited open site for us. I'm sure we took someone's assigned site. This location was quiet and a very few children running around. Utilities were acceptable, didn't try the pool, cable or WiFi. Our site didn't have large trees but most sites do. The sites are packed gravel and somewhat level. The streets are asphalt. The grounds were neat and tidy. The are was windy but not that bad. Just windy to not extend awnings.
We did enjoy sitting out in the evening and watching the wonderful sunsets and sunrises.
For a pull thru, the site was just long enough for a 30' TT. Had to park sideways and barely made it.
Overall, it was quiet and will return again. - SD75mac

TRAINS, TRAINS and more TRAINS!!! OMG up all night because they blow their horns all through town, there was a freight train every hour on the hour, don't stay here if you want sleep and have your window open.
The dog park are is ok and large. I made reservations about 3 weeks in advance online, when we arrived the owner said the space she had put us in would not be long enough to stay hooked up with our tow......I had specified this when making the reservation. She moved us to an area by the storage and said we could "hang out" a bit.....so be aware that if you have a 32'+ RV w/tow it's a bit tight to fit in their pull thru's without unhooking. Glad we didn't get there after hours...don't know what we would have done. The grounds do have grass, some areas need to get "finished" with construction. The full timers are fairly clean, but glad we weren't staying a longer than a night. - loves to camp w/dogs

Other than evening walks around the campground we were either playing cards in the RV or visiting Oak Glen. The only negative was the air conditioning was not working in the game room. Over all it was a nice campground. - Tom91739
