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. We camped at Brite Lake in a Motorhome.

Nice, quiet and convenient for Tehachapi. Restrooms were pretty dirty when we first went there last year. Haven't used them since. Some of the elec/water only sites had broken electrical boxes and/or badly wired boxes. Beware of exposed wires! The recreation dept. is pretty responsive if you need help but they seemed to be short handed, hence the broken elec. boxes. Never saw or heard from the camp hosts. Good place for short visits. We camped at Brite Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Not a bad option for Tehachapi with an RV. Small little county recreation park built adjacent to a reservoir. We were here in the winter, so pretty quiet, not sure how busy the day use areas are during the warmer months. Sites not very private, and not very level, but each had a table and fire ring. Restrooms had flush toilets, but pretty tired, a little dirty (not bad), in a concrete block building. Shower looked a little nasty, but does have running water, and I don't think you had to pay for it. Enjoyed the walk around the reservoir, and this park does give you lots of room to walk around and enjoy the foothills. Wished we had brought our dog; he would have enjoyed. Cost was nominal, and we got a senior rate. We camped at Brite Lake in a Motorhome.

Very nice County Park - a hidden gem. Well-maintained dirt roads inside the park. Most sites are pull-through and relatively level. Flush toilets and showers are functional, but old and very worn. Very quiet and almost empty in off-season. Appears to be mostly day use by locals. Limited OTA TV signal, strong cell phone, and good 4G mobile broadband service. Fees (as of 12/04/12): Day use and fishing passes $5, tent camping/RV sites (dry camping sites with no hookups) $15, water and electric $20, full hookups $30. Dump station $5 (free for campers). Cute animal and fish wood carvings on signs throughout park. Dump station has full-size bear peaking out from behind outhouse door. Small reservoir has trout and catfish (limit 5 fish total per day). Easy, scenic walks around lake on top of dam and on interior park roads. We camped at Brite Lake in a Travel Trailer.

My husband loved this site the most as there were so few campers. We had a nice view of the lake and loved hiking the trails around the hills. For me, it was too quiet. The hosts were super friendly. We camped at Brite Lake in a Motorhome.
