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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was just a stopover for one night, but it was a very nice park. It is nestled between mountains, and offers nice views and peaceful surroundings. No one was there to greet us, but our name and site # was on the door. The park was almost empty, but as the evening wore on, many came in for overnights. The sites are gravel, and easy to level. No sewer,but water and electric were fine. They do offer a dump station, which we did not use. Someone previously reported difficulty with a 40 ft motorhome and 4 door jeep, we have just that and had no problem with the turns or the pull-through. We disconnected to run to a store, but it would have been fine if we didn't. Someone from the office came in early and we "checked in" as we were leaving. Otherwise, trees a mail slot for payment. Airport next door was very quiet. Nice little park for a 1 or 2 night stay. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 days with a friend who was wanting to try out his new 5th wheel. This is a small (27 spaces, all pull-through) basic park with water and electric only. Dump station is available. Each site has a table, no fire rings (real windy) and a tree or two separating each site. The bathrooms are cleaned everyday. Check-in was easy. It is located right next to the glider airport and was fun to watch take offs and landings. The airport has a small cafe, The Raven's Nest open for breakfast and lunch. Good food. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Tehachapi is on Hwy 58 between Bakersfield and Barstow. A great place for a stop over or exended stay. Good choices for food. Fall is great for apples. Looking at all the wind machines is a site to behold.

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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second stay in this delightful park, which is far enough, but not too far off the beaten path. We enjoyed views of glider plane take-offs and landings from our campsite.
The downside is no sewer hook ups, although the park provides a free dump station.
Mountain View/Tehachapi is a perfect way station while crossing the desert. Staff is 5-star! We will definitely stay here again! We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pleasant place to stay while traversing Rte58 between Bakersfield and Barstow. It's a couple miles from the highway, but easily found. We visited the glider port and walked among the parked gliders, great fun. The area is quite windy; there's a huge wind farm in the area, easy to understand why.

This a basic RV Park. The downside there is no sewer dump at sites. Our stay was very quiet. We have stayed here before and would stay again overnight. Our site was gravel and had a very much downslope.

NOTE. The map takes you over to the airport. Turn right instead of left. You really can see for yourself. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a very pleasant valley. Even in the drought, the grasslands were green. There are the basics of a big grocery store and hardware chain store, so you have everything you need there. I did not have enough time, but there is a train museum and the Tehachapi Loop, where the trains pass themselves as they climb the mountain. Don't miss the excellent bakery on the main street!

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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Delightful small park. Very clean and well ordered. Kind of hard to find - be sure and set your gps for lat/lon coordinates. Sites were level and drive-through. Most had shade and all had picnic tables, water, and electric. No TV here and the wifi didnt work the night we were there but the location was so quiet and peaceful that we didnt miss the wifi one bit. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this place to all my F&F. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whether or not you are a railfan, Tehachapi Loop is not to be missed-- it is an engineering marvel. Also recommend the (free) Tehachapi Rail Depot tour. There is also a quirky "Honey Wagon Brewing" for those who fancy craft beers, but good luck finding it.

Small park next to glider plane airfield. It is quiet with nice shade trees but open enough for good Verizon and satellite TV. Because it is out of town, the stars at night are spectacular. We just loved the quiet and rustic atmosphere of this park. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We found this to be the sweetest of parks, rustic but with full hook-up. Being outside of town, the stars were just brilliant! Each site has a picnic table and some shrub/tree screening from the space next door. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are close together but trees provide some privacy. This is a lovely place situated alongside an airport that caters to gliders. If you are lucky you can watch the glider activity or even take a ride. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.
