$54/$58/day Site 108 Wilderness Lakes in a Thousand Trails park located in what is left of the farming country in Temecula-Land. A very large park that takes reservations but does not assign sites...first come, first served and most of the sites are 30 amp only...not a big deal in the winter, but summer...could be an issue. We arrived very early on a Saturday and were lucky to score a "lakeside" back-in 50 amp site just vacated minutes before. During our week there we witnessed much maneuvering by other arrivals trying to land a favored spot. "Lakeside" is a euphemism as the water features are more like muddy ponds with lots of ducks and geese (and the associated quacks and bird poop). It was nice having our rear window overlooking the water. Sites are spacious but pretty much dirt and can be mucky in wet weather. The park was crowded with winter vacationers, but was very well organized with lots of planned activities for adults and kids. Normally they have an adults only pool, but it was closed for winter. There is a Country Store for must haves, a large grocery store is a mile away. Our site was satellite friendly but many of the other sites were in treed areas. WiFi is paid only, nothing free. $15/week but even paid, it was so slow as to be unusable. - Todd Hancock

This Park is top notch! Located on an animal preserve. Clean, quiet, serene, and canal based. Fantastic weather on a daily basis. Great security and staff!! Welcome home!? Arrive mid week. - Windman69

The canals, roads, and campsites are filled with duck, goose, and dog feces. I believe this to be a public health hazard. People drive and walk over the feces, the dried feces becomes airborne, and you breathe it in. It also gets all over your shoes and your pet's paws and you track the feces dust into your RV. Our dog has gotten diarrhea numerous times while staying here after walking the grounds. I have been ill as well. Many non 50 amp pop-up tent trailers and travel trailers use the very limited number of 50 amp spots making them unavailable for the RVs that actually need them. Thousand Trails does nothing about this. Their outdated policy is "first come first serve" with no regard to the power requirements of modern RVs. The sewer backed up several times while we were staying there and it affected several sites. We finally had to move to a different site. It was eventually fixed after we moved. - TheQs

This was my Yosemite backup. When you can't get a campsite at Yosemite, you get one at Idyllwild. This campground was really good. I was able to get a really large campsite (Site 93) with plenty of room for our outdoor stuff. The map shows it as a back-in, but I got there and was able to pull through. There are decent hiking trails with trailheads extremely nearby, and the trails allow dogs. We were able to ride our bikes to the local town; we happened to be there for the Easter Egg hunt. The campsites are fairly un-level and they're marked a little haphazardly. There were community water spigots all over the place, but they were frozen for one of the mornings we were there--thawed later that afternoon. Campsites include a fire-ring/grill and a picnic table. Most of the campsites are for tents but there is a section at one end dedicated to RVs. I didn't see any Class A's. The interior roads are a little tight for big rigs. No dump station. Overall it was a quiet weekend getaway that we all really enjoyed and would happily do again. - Arash

My rate was $20 plus a $7 reservation fee. This was a nice cool place to camp out of the heat of the valley below. I wish I could spend more time up here. Do not expect level sites like you would find in an RV park. Many of these sites are designed for tents, but you can get an RV in there. There are two buildings with showers, one at the very front of the campground (near the day use parking lot), and one near the middle of the campground. My campsite was at the very back of the campground, and at my site Verizon service was poor, so your mileage may vary. I would stay here again. - Rick Scholz

Rate reflects Passport America. Most of campground was closed when I was there. I was in a paved level site near the entrance of the campground. I walked campground and some sites towards the end turnaround loop also looked suitable for smaller RVs (I have 25' C). Good Verizon signal. Walking distance to town and restaurants. Mixed forest with pine trees in campground, very pretty. Friendly helpful campground host. - tpild

Ducks are being fed by the long termers and there is DUCK Crap everywhere. Very unsanitary and flies everywhere. OK if you don't want to come out of your camper. Won't go back! - Brad T

Park is run down and dirty. Too many flies to enjoy yourself and they say they stock the lake but they don't really. Your being ripped off if you pay to fish there. Lake is dirty and has trash floating in it. Nothing for the kids to do. - Nun ya

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

We had an electrical problem when we hooked up to the park's electrical system. It applied 220 volts instead of 120 volts to our camper because of a problem in the campground equipment. This caused four weeks of repair time and almost $1000 in damage. The park claims they are not responsible for the damage and we have had to resort to a legal claim against the park. Talking with other park residents we learned that others had similar issues with the park. The park is not particularly clean, litter is prevalent, however there is a decent dog park, and other dog owners are friendly. The park does have a decent pool and small Rec hall. Advertised WIFI is useless anytime day or night. Daily Rate quoted was based on monthly rate. Gated Park but still accessed by homeless people hanging out nearby - Keep everything locked up! - raymond28

First of all, electric breaker kept going out in 115 degree. Second day we were moved. No more problems with that. Cigarette butts everywhere, we don't smoke. Pool closed by county environmental services for filth giving them one month to clean it up. Management very rude! My advice, stay somewhere else! - Pennell

This is the third winter I have stayed In Diamond Valley: each year from 1 Nov thru March. The staff is excellent, facilities are great and the Management superb. Residents walk around the park for exercise or to walk their pets. There Is a great dog run also. Guests must stay a minimum of a week, so it eliminates the constant in and out traffic. It is a gated community. Laundry facilities are great and clean. I will be back back next year. - Craig- W W

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

This a beautiful park and very popular with snowbird RVers that stay for several months during the winter months. We have spent many winters there. The staff have been excellent, always trying to make our stay pleasant . The management is poor! They are not very hospitable and they are in the hospitality business. The general manager rarely speaks, even if you say "good morning". This park is not very pet friendly . They have raised the dog fee from $30.00 / season to $30.00/ month / dog. That is gouging the customers that have been loyal clients for many years! The Golden Village Palms has many rules and regulations that are not evenly applied, which is very frustrating . - Pinsent

This is a popular winter destination for snow birds who enjoy club activities. It is an older park with established trees and vegetation but has a crowded feel to it. Our site was too narrow for our 40 foot class A: we had to park our rig half on the cement patio to allow room for our deep driver side slideout to clear the dividing shrubbery. The power source was from a shared post in the rear passenger side corner of the site. The cable tv outlet was there as well but not active. We didn't require patio space as this was a short "shake down" visit which met our needs. This site would not have been suitable for a long stay. The sites on the street we were parked on looked similarly small. We have camped here before and would return for a special occasion. The park is close to shopping and restaurants. - Roger H.

This is a destination park and would be a good place to spend a month or more. It looks like they have lots of activities available. We were only there for one night but would like to go back and spend some time. There are many park models in the park. - Windshift

The pool and spa where unavailable due to construction. No rules were enforced and if you asked about the rules, you where asked to leave. There's a gate but nobody has a code to open it and if it gets closed you have to figure out how to get in. There's new management that only cares about collecting money. It is getting filled with park models and permanent trailers that are falling apart. Most permanent tenants take up 2 to 3 spaces. This park has gone so down hill since my last stay. - Cah123

Have been visiting this park for the last four seasons. I'm a "snow bird," so Casa Del Sol is my winter home. First two seasons, in a fifth-wheel, then with the help of the park manager, ordered a park model and now have all the features and room I could want! Excellent security (with new additions of lighting and security gates), clean sites, a sense of community encouraged by special events and gatherings for the entire park. And all the amenities you expect at a resort park: pickle-ball, shuffleboard, a card room, craft room (with the most wonderful group of quilters you could find!), exercise room, a pool room, swimming pool and spa, laundry, restrooms and showers, and a ballroom with full-service kitchen for events. Management truly cares for all of the residents, and go out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued. Availability of services and shopping in Hemet is A+, conveniently close by. I'll be back again in the fall to my winter home...can't wait! - Marketlady

Me and my wife had an extended stay at this wonderful park, and in doing so got to experience almost everything the park has to offer. Whether you like to sit by a pool, play tennis, or enjoy one of their many community run events that are held in their clubhouse, you will surely find something to do. One thing this place has that you can't find anywhere else around here is a nice community and friendly staff. I would mention names if not for the rule, but let's just say that anyone that helps, especially management, you will be well taken care of. - Young couple

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

Though this RV park has great potential it is not pursued. Most of the spaces are permanent residents in old RV's most appear not movable. The residents do not keep up their sites so it looks horrid. Broken down vehicles and trash (maybe personal belongings) surround most of the permanent residents sites. This is not much more than an expensive overnight stopover. There my was no picnic table at my site. Next time I am in the area I will go to a Walmart or rest area which is comparable to this RV park only free. There is no place to dump your trash. On a positive note it was quiet. - pjkoths

Stayed here for 3 months during the winter. Roads could use some work, some tight turns; under new management, they are working on landscaping (mostly desert area). Spots are gravel with a concrete patio. There are a lot of full time residents but all were very nice. Some of the run down RV's are being weeded out (I'm sure that takes time). Our spot was up on a hill, could get windy at times. Never any issues with the laundry services. Nice pool and hot tub. Others stated they didn't feel safe, we never had an issue with anyone there or in the area. We walked our dogs all through the nearby neighborhoods without any problems at all. My husband rode his bike to the nearby Walmart and grocery store. Several families in the park with kids; had a park Halloween party that was fun. Office staff friendly and helpful. No this is not a high dollar resort, but it is a nice and safe place to stay. I worked in San Bernardino so this was a good spot for us to have as a home base. We would stay again. - LaneyC RN

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

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
