8 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

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

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

What a beautiful setting for this RV Park. Nestled in the hills of Tehachapi with gorgeous views of the valley. We loved the peace and quiet. The sounds of the glider planes taking off right past us were enjoyable, not offensive.
But - there was no one there to welcome us and even though I had called and was assured our site assignment would be on the door, there was no mention of us and what site we were to occupy. We had to wait 15 minutes for the manager to come. She assigned us to a space for 3 days and then the next morning there was a note on our door telling us she made a mistake and we would need to move to a different site. All of you know that once settled, it is not a fun thing to stow things again, disconnect and hitch back up to move 100 feet away, but we did.
Now the basics. This is a water and electric only park with a dump site. The water pressure is very low. There are some nice trees for shade but there is only dirt out our door. The office has some nice grass but there is none elsewhere. The first site we had was high at one end but the second one was very level. The sites are plenty wide but a bit on the short side. We are a 30 foot 5th wheel and our truck just fit after unhitching. We did not visit the restrooms. There are no permanent residents which is a plus.
Not a perfect place by a long shot but we did check out the other places in the area before hitching up and moving to another site and this is by far the best. - Myrt & Gordy

Stayed one night, quite and clean. This park is a little tight for a 40ft motorhome so be careful, couple of tight turns and trees need to be trimmed back, but you can do it. Quite and peaceful, site just fit a 40ft motorhome towing a 4 door jeep. Good dump station, did not hook up to power or water, have solar panels and Sat. dish. Site drops to front of RV and a little drop to the driver side pull thur site. - Dude66

We rely on the reviews on this site to pick campgrounds and we found this campground to be grossly overrated. The campground host was not available for check-in or when the power went out to the entire park. The site needed mowing and some disrepair to the hookups. At check-in our assigned site was not available since it was occupied by someone else, the host excuse was they were "hardheaded". My take is he's not there and people park/camp where they want. A high price for camping with partial hookups. We would never stay here again. - jtl2

Pulled into this "park", looked around at the lack of amenities, shade, trees, etc. The only thing there appeared to be an abundance of was blowing sand and wind. The few units in the "park" appeared to have been there for a very extended time. Needless to say we did not stay. - sandstorm

We stayed here 2 nights. There isn't anywhere else to stay. It isn't an RV park; most sites are RV's, but they are extended stay. It is a run down town, and this park is right in town. It's okay for a night, but there's not much to do. There is a coffee shop not far from the park which is very nice. It serves great coffee and other drinks, has fresh donuts and serves sandwiches, too. - bonne1

There are a lot of permanent residents in the park and some very run down trailers, so don’t expect a beautiful park. It worked for us as an overnight while passing through and was nice and quiet at night. It felt fairly safe since one of the residents was a sheriff’s deputy. The lady manager was very nice and accommodating. The service is 30 amp but seemed to be strong service. We did not have reservations, but there were lots of open spaces. We did not have a problem with satellite since there are no trees. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well. The prior reviewers have pointed out the things to do in town, so I will not go into them. There is a surprisingly good food market in town. As noted, do expect wind. We would stay here again if passing through, but only for a night on the way. - TheJim

There were two reasons why we gave the park a low rating. The WiFi was based on satellite service so it was slow and spotty. In desperation to check out e-mail we stood under the router to connect and had to type standing up. The advertised pool was there and full of water but the water was green and the gate was padlocked. I have never seen a dirtier pool.
The owner was very friendly, but we felt the Park was not a good value for the price.
We were able to use our satellite and pick up TV. - WNC Traveler

A nice park, with friendly staff. Every site has a picnic table and charcoal grill. All sites that have access to WiFi are back-in. There are some pull-throughs, but they are out of WiFi range. Close to Hwy 14, and about 15 miles from Red Rock Canyon State Park (worth seeing). - ta96silver

Friendly staff, and for an overnight stay, a pull-through no less. It fit the bill and worked for us. The site was sunny with some shade, No, it is not the Taj Mahal, but neither is the price. If back this way, we WILL stay again. - Len C
