5 Parks near Tehachapi, California
Jan 2016 - $20.00
The rate reflects power and water hook up. FHU was $30 and tenting was $15. It's hard to tell if the recent rains are what makes this park feel a bit run down, or if it is a bit rundown. There are many areas where it is obvious campers were stuck in the recent rains. And parts of the park are still closed today, 5 days later, as they appear to be drying up. And the lake is down probably 20 feet. And the bathrooms are dark. The women's seemed clean, but the men's definitely was not. We did have a brand new picnic table at our site. And the electrical box was newish. The roads are dirt. I would not stay here again, but I might try something else in the area. - ALbums

The lake level was low due to the drought and a crew was preparing the lake-shore for a weekend rock festival. So, we were fortunate to stay there on a weekday. We had one of the 12 electric and water sites because all the FHU sites were taken. But, for $20, this site was the only bargain campground we found in California. Definitely worth considering as an overnight stop between Barstow and Bakersfield. - fanrgs

Park is big rig friendly. There are six FHU sites, four were occupied by permanent residents. We had a FHU site for two nights and all of the services worked as expected. Our site (B) was level, and shaded on one side. There isn't any privacy barrier between sites, but the sites are well spaced. There are additional water and electric sites in another part of the campground. We didn't check out the restrooms/showers. The park was clean, with trash cans placed throughout the park. There were camp hosts on site when we were there, but payment is made by placing money/check in an envelope and dropping it in a slot at the entrance booth. There are good paths for walking pets along the lake. Verizon service worked well in the park (don't know if there was park wi-fi). We enjoyed our two days and would return if passing through the area. The town of Tehachapi appears to be a thriving town. - Guinness

We were sent to Indian Hill Ranch & RV Park by another RV park that was full. We were offered the sites "behind the electric gate" & told that they were water & electric only but we'd have privacy. They were right & we loved it. It was like boondocking but with hookups. We were meeting another couple & they had a site that had 2 hookups but was away from the other sites - perfect. We don't use RV park restrooms/showers so not having those close wasn't a problem for us. If primitive camping isn't your idea of a great site, we wouldn't recommend this. If you prefer scenery over close quarters, this is a great place to spend a little time. - licensedtochill

FIrst off, I called for a reservation and message said to email. So, I emailed, but never got a reply or confirmation. Then I called to make sure we had a spot but never got a call back. Other reviews said they were late in calling back so we took a chance and went anyway. When we arrived no one was in the office but a lady ran out and met us at the car. She had us on the list but said "most people don't show up, so we don't open the office". Gee, if you don't send a confirmation its no wonder! She took us to the so-called premium sites, behind the gate. It's a mile or so down a dirt road in an all dirt section with run down sites. Uneven, bumpy sites with stumps sticking up for electric and water. Broken down picnic tables and shacks that I have no idea why they were there. Never set foot in the bathrooms so don't know if they were working or not. We were the only ones back there. These sites are more expensive and advertised as beside the "lake". The lake turns out to be 2 dried up algae covered holes in the ground. Needless to say the bugs were around. The only reason I give this 1 star is the park is on a ranch that is on very beautiful land. It's quiet in the back area and you can hear / see coyotes at night. I think the owners have no money to keep this place up, which is unfortunate. They should charge a lot less money! - PMG

We did like this park. Nice hiking trails to the premium sites and lake that are open in the summer. A heads up. Our phone calls and e-mails were returned only after several days. We were here in December. We were lucky to get an end site and had a nice view of the hills. We don't tow another vehicle, so unlikely we'll return as other than the hike, not much more to see walking. - billandme

Agree with the other postings. This is a very basic campground, but it is far enough off the freeway to be really quiet and close enough to be convenient. I appreciated that the attendant assigned spaces spread apart enough for the few of us staying there, instead of packing us into one end as sometimes happens. We all had privacy that way. Beautiful views and neat to watch the gliders being towed past the campsites. Excellent Verizon, which is important to me. - judy_online

It's such a beautiful quite place. It's very basic, got laundry, bathrooms, and shower. It park of the airstrip grounds but don't let that turn you off because it's not a regular airport where you hear airplanes all day long. On the contrary, if you're lucky you'll be able to see a nice show of a vintage airplane taking off.
You got mountains all around you, very peaceful.
No WiFi but Verizon worked well.
The sites are all pull-throughs of gravel/dirt that are separate by different type of trees, feels private.
We loved it. - MikeMayNaama

What a hidden gem! This park is a bit out of town, adjacent to the glider-port, but as a previous reviewer suggested, just use lat/long in your GPS and you will have no problem.
Owner/check-in was super-friendly; sites partially shaded by young trees, but did not interfere with sat TV. Restrooms/showers GREAT, and WiFi worked flawlessly. We would definitely visit this park again. - CO2RV

This is a dry-campers dream! If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful setting for a weekend in the mountains then this is the place for you. It was easy for us to find a place to park our 26' TT, but you'll need to set a few more blocks under your leveling jacks. This camp is about 4500' elevation and the sites are at different levels on the mountain. Big motorhomes and 5th wheels should stay closer to the entrance: site 60 and 61 are perfect for big rigs. There's plenty of hiking trails, pine trees and fresh air. Tehachapi tends to be 10-20 degrees cooler than the neighboring Mojave Desert and Central Valley, which makes this a great summer retreat. It's first some first serve, $14/night, and no hook-ups. So if you can deal with that, then you will have a great time! - Forrman

This park is actually a Mobile Home Park with RV parking around the perimeter. About half the sites have concrete pads, the other half (around the east perimeter) are just grass and you need to 'angle' park to accommodate the space since there is not enough room to back directly in. The park is close to the train tracks, you will hear them pass through during the evening. The manager is very nice and willing to work with anyone although he will not take reservations. We called the day before to be sure there would be a space to park in. The park is also adjacent to the local airport, but it was pretty quiet the 2 nights we stayed here. The park isn't recommended for long term stay, but if you need to stay a night to rest up during your trip it will fit the bill. - JayTee
