This was our worst camping experience in two years. Frankly, I am surprised that there are so many positive reviews. My wife and I found this campground to be very dismal. The RV parking on the upper level is dirty and has almost no aesthetic appeal. It's like a big dirt parking lot dug out of the side of the hill. There are no views to speak of, just a big wall of dirt out back and construction out front. The picnic tables for each site appear to have never been cleaned and are covered with stains and debris. There was no Wi-Fi or phone service in the RV area so you had to walk down the hill to the community center for any services of that sort and even there it was spotty. We were scheduled to stay one week but left after 3 nights - as soon as we could locate an alternative park. I certainly would not recommend this location to any RVers. It is a difficult drive in though a poorly maintained road and the park itself is dreary at best. We camped at Santiago Event Center RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Now this is not your usual RV park. But by far the cheapest place offering full hookup sites in Orange County. A Christian event center runs this park which is located on their premise quite a bit outside of any town in the area. It is meant for longer stays, but travelers (and you don't need to be a religious person) are welcome. You have to go through the somewhat unusual reservation process though. Online only through their website and at least one week in advance. It took me a couple of follow up calls to confirm our reservation. Driving there you can use your GPS with the adress stated on the website. The last mile to the gate of the event center is a very bumpy country road. We wondered why the six speed bumps on the way were needed. The gate code was provided with the reservation confirmation. Checking in at the office was a bit different then with other parks. Little room to park the rig. Photo ID and insurance papers needed to be shown and photocopied. Once that was set and the credit card slided we could drive the last half mile up to the RV sites. Very bumpy indeed. Mostly gravel, some enormous potholes and a few low branches skirting the roof. You have to drive to the upper level of the park and I would recommend to take the left way when the road forks at the lower level. There are more sites on the lower level but these are not for public use. The sites are all back in and in #35 we had just about enough room to maneuver with our 34' RV (51' combined length). The sites with lower numbers provide more room and longer rigs would not have problems there. The sites are gravel, provide full hookups in OK shape, even cable. We needed no leveling equipment. The WiFi was OK, not the fastest, but good enough for emails and web browsing. Our Verizon worked on the lower level but not up on our site. Very friendly and considerate neighbors. The place is very safe and very quiet, especially at night. Be prepared for some christian events on and around the lower level from Friday night to Sunday afternoon including early morning music and singing, prayers and more music and singing throughout the day. No noise after 10 pm. Overall, this is an off the beaten path option to park your RV. I would not recommend going there if it is for less than at least three days. The reservation and check in hassle along with the long and bumpy drive in and out is not worth it if it is only for a night. We stayed for six nights, enjoying the remoteness, safety and quietness. We also enjoyed the low rate and did not mind the somewhat long drives to the L.A. and Orange County attractions. We will come back. We camped at Santiago Event Center RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
