Yet another stay at Pechanga. Major construction at the casino, which has changed the entrance to the RV Resort. If possible, get a site as close to A Street as you can. This keeps you away from the construction equipment noise during the week days. Don't know what's up with the hot water in the showers. If you like a cold shower with just a "tudge" of warm water then this is for you. I took my showers 'round 10 AM and no hot water. I noticed the wind gusts starts early afternoon and continues till late evening. Sometimes the gust are VERY strong. Someone in a TT left for the day and their awning was extended. Boy did they have a surprise when they returned! Kind of had a small ant problem at my site, this is the first time for this problem. The sites with picnic tables are getting new tables. Saw them being assembled.
Overall, my 4-day stay was nice and restful. Called for the free shuttle to the casino and they were prompt. I stayed from Sun - Thurs and all the noise-making camper were gone, except for one bunch just behind me. Will stay again. - SD75mac

True resort. Large level sites, roomy interior roads, pool, 2 spas, clean facilities. If you go to casino door to door service. Everything was exactly what we want when RVing. - SlicksMom

This is a clean, well laid out RV resort. Streets are wide and asphalt. Sites concrete and large. Nice landscaping that is well maintained between sites. Check in is quick and informative. Restrooms and showers are large and clean. The pool is clean and warm. Satellite and Wi-Fi worked great. Friendly and quiet atmosphere. Security patrols frequently. The shuttle bus to the casino comes through on a regular basis. This is always our first choice when we are in the area. - Dano50

Nicely maintained park. Note: there are only a handful of 50 amp sites. Roads are paved with sites being hard packed dirt. Some large trees throughout park but we were able to use our satellite dish. Our space was long enough to hold 40 foot trailer and truck easily. Decent spacing between sites. Our site did require some leveling. Quiet area yet you are close to Temecula and the wineries. There is no cell service at the park so they provide a free landline phone for you in the lounge. Great value and place to stay if you want to do some wine tasting or see Old Town Temecula. Wi-Fi is free but very slow. - mcharland

Very remote park with trails and lots to do in the surrounding area. Did a long term stay and was very happy with the management and park hosts. Weekends can get crowded during peak times and wifi is poor due to it's location - lucky if you get cell service or text. Go there to relax and enjoy nature, site-see. - PixieStardust

Nice quiet park in a rural setting. People are very friendly and our initial registration was very easy. Dirt pads, but that wasn't a problem at all; very level. Pet friendly. Unfortunately, the only reasons I will not return is lack of cell service and lousy Wi-Fi, although the park is advertised as having it. Otherwise, a very nice park. - JeffBobbi

The "resort" has potential. It has many large trees that offer shade to some sites but not much else. The place is run down, the roads are littered with pot holes and a lot of deferred maintenance. The arcade is closed due to safety issues. It looks like they just closed it down and are using it for storage. And forget about the lake. It's miles away and barely visible. - Tony ML

Great family park. Stayed over New Years and had a blast.
No cell phone service or WIFI but got Sat TV.
Very cold but made the campfire more enjoyable. - Elcajonee

This is Not a resort. It is a high priced, run down campground. The roads have pot holes, the trees along the road hit the top of our RV, the trash dumpsters were overflowing, the camp sites are dirt or gravel, most sites are unlevel, and no Wi-Fi in the camp ground. Verizon cell coverage is very poor, no picnic tables, and empty beer bottles on the miniature golf course. After two days of overflowing trash dumpsters, there is a mass of trash lying on the ground around the empty dumpsters and no staff to clean it up. The campground is two miles from the lake and there are fees to use the lake. On the positive side, they have an attractive swimming pool area, a separate water slide for kids, and nice live oak trees on the property. It would not be so bad if it wasn’t so overpriced. Based on our experience, it should have been half what we paid. I heard the campground is in bankruptcy and also heard they are tied up in financial lawsuits. We will never stay here again. - LK23

We came here from Lake Skinner Rec Park. We thought this was a nice park, for the one night that we stayed. It is mostly permanent residents, here but there is availability for overnight guests. We had 'lake' parking and it was nice, peaceful and quiet. Will return again. - awphull1

This is not a campground - this is a trailer park. 80% of the sites are used for full time guests which is fine but they really should tell people that. Our site was sandwiched between two full time families who fought all night (I thought we'd end up on Cops) and walked around half naked. We had no fire ring, no picnic table and the bathrooms were locked. Our neighbors dog used their deck as a bathroom which was eye level with our windows. We had to keep them closed and covered the entire time. The lake is green sludge that reeks. Maybe this is better in the Summer but our experience was horrid, we went home early and will never go back. - Charlalee

This is an interesting place to say the least. They have their own pond/lake thing. There are a lot of residents, a few vacation home people and then us overnighters. I have to admit that is the friendliest place around! Lots of nice folks, not too noisy. The roads around here are dirt, so don't expect the best accommodations if you are used to a more luxurious style. They can handle RV's of any size, and tents too, but like many parks, the spaces for the larger rigs are limited. There is no cable, no TV, no cell phone coverage and you are lucky if you can get radio inside your rig. There is Wi-Fi, but only if you take your laptop to the bar/office area. Bring a book! The lake is interesting. It is basically a few streams built up behind a dam. But I have to say that I find it “nice”. There is catch and release fishing, paddle boats, a swim area and an area to launch water balloons into the lake at your friends and strangers. There is also: a bar! OK, so it is not a FULL bar. In fact, all they sell is beer. Still, on a hot day in August, looking over the lake and having a cold one. - BBlast

This review will be primarily for the Temecula Valley Wine and Balloon Festival camping experience. It was around $430 for the weekend for a Water/Electric site; a little more for a full hookup site. That price includes 2 combo passes to the festival. I stayed at Campsite A which was right next to the festival main entrance. That was a great location! I tried getting a full hookup spot, but those sold out instantly. At least I was able to get electricity. For the festival they opened up a huge dry camp area in the dirt lot next to campsite A. I'm guessing there were about 300 sites marked off in the dirt. If you don't mind crowded, dusty, and loud dry camping this is for you. The biggest plus camping for the festival is you don't have to deal with the traffic getting out. I've heard it can take 1 - 2 hours to get out using the one lane road, especially on Saturday night.
Our biggest complaint was the dust. With dry dirt everywhere and occasional high winds, you get dirty. I imagine during a regular stay at the campgrounds it wouldn't be too bad, but with a crowded festival it was really bad. Other complaint was not enough portable bathrooms in the campsite. There was 1 nearby and after 1 day with a full campsite...lets just say I'm glad I don't have to sit.
I'm definitely doing it again next year. - Arash

This is a large campground on the eastern side of Temecula. You feel very much like you are in the country when staying here. The is a large lake, hills & mountains, and lots of very nice scenery here this spring. You can even see the distant snow on the higher mountains. I have also seen hot air balloons rising in the distance the last two mornings. There are a number of attractive wineries close by. Many of those places have restaurants. Most of these restaurants are closed at 4pm.
This is an ideal weekend for camping and the place is pretty full. But outside of the weekend you should be able to get in here without a reservation. This is a ways off the freeway though. And if you camp here it is an 8 mile drive to the grocery store, and restaurants open after 4pm. - RFCN2

This is always a popular place to camp for a few days for us as it is close to where we have our base. This is not an RV park but rather a camp ground. Many spaces are satellite friendly, spaces are quite level but on dirt with only selected sites that have grass nearby.
Good cell phone service and your personal hot spot on either Verizon or AT&T works very well. The campground also has wifi that you can pay for.
This is a very easy park for new RV'ers to practice their skills as there is a lot of room between sites and the dirt forgives mistakes that might be made!
Dog friendly and lots of room to walk fish, or even boat. No body contact with the lake is allowed, but there is a splash park that operates in the summer. There is a small store and gas pumps on the campground property .
Local area provides wine tasting, restaurants of all kinds, food shopping and fuel along with other stores. A very nice park, a bit rustic but a chance to feel you are a long way from the city while just being outside of a good sized city. This campground is well worth a visit!! - Old Detective

We stayed for one night in spot 14. Check-in was smooth, plenty of room to park for check-in, all the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. A ten-dollar deposit required for a card to access the pool, shower facilities. It is refunded when you check out. There was a staff member who met us at our site to assist with parking. This resort is newly opened, situated to the east of Pala Casino. There is shuttle service available to take you to the casino; we preferred to walk, less than 15 minutes. The sites are large; each one has a picnic able. They offer curbside trash pickup prior to 10am. It was a quiet resort, situated far enough from the highway traffic; street lighting wasn't harsh, closer to the ground. We will definitely return. - retiredatc

Just got back from our stay at Pala, and I'm totally impressed. Great staff, helpful in every way. The sites are deep and wide with tables and great hookups. The free shuttle to the casino is a plus. Great pool area and game room amenities. The only thing was the high curb to the site. Didn't affect our 5th wheel but I saw others with travel trailers that had a time getting in without scraping the hitch. I hear they supply ramps to assist but it's still a thing to watch out for. Other than that, we loved the CG and will definitely be returning soon. - WE2FISH

This new RV park is beautiful, well designed and landscaped. Sites are long and wide. The road to the casino/park from I-15 is slow, windy and well trafficked. Staff is friendly. A great place for gamblers or those wanting a pleasant getaway. - Roger H.

Lots of room to walk around the canals and grounds. Has two swimming pools, one for the families and one for adults only. Has an exercise room for adults. Free wi-fi at the lodges. The pay WiFi is very slow in the park. Here is a short stroll in the evening https://youtu.be/I25l2QewfDI. - Joe O

We are members of Thousand Trails so stayed there for free on our membership. The park rules say "check-in at noon, check-out at noon". We were sold a "family campground" but it's anything but. This really is for long term people. We wanted 2 sites on the canal and for this reason checked in on a Wednesday. There were no sites available, but we saw two rigs that were due to check out and had not yet (even though it was after checkout time). We were able to secure 2, 30 amp sites. After talking to our neighbor I learned there is a system that people get to know each other and let them know when they are leaving so if someone in a 50 amp site is leaving, another long term person would move over from the 30 amp site. Makes it hard for newcomers to secure the 50 amp. We were on the canal and there was trash in the canal and no attempt to fish it out. TTN has gone downhill and looks worn out. The person at the front gate immediately chastised me for going over the line (which I didn't see). I always have had my window next to the ranger door and thought this was correct. Not a friendly welcome. When we joined there were rental trailers only. Now there are rental cabin and lease sites, taking sites away from members. - GOLDEN GIRL

We had stayed at this park before and had a wonderful time, but it had been approximately 15 years prior. We were very disappointed in the changes that had occurred. The majority of the park is occupied by permanent residences, which include RV's and park model mobile homes. There are only around 10 full hookup campsites that can be used for campers. I only saw one tent site, which looked nice. The bathrooms that were located near us were closed the entire time we were there & smelled really bad. There was only one picnic table for all of the RV sites and you can get a fire pit upon request. There are 2 ponds, one looks like they are trying to empty it & the other looked nicer, but still had a lot of trash in & around it. There was no longer a store, or the large clubhouse that we remembered. The playground looked run-down & had graffiti written on it. The first night we were there, 2 men were involved in a fist fight. It was not very peaceful because there was always dogs barking and loud music playing. We couldn't walk our dog like we usually do, because there were always stray dogs running around that looked sick. The price for this campground was an astonishing $45 a night, what is normally paid for a camping resort. This campground is no resort. - lttldee

One of the best places we have ever stayed. All sites are leased and are put into a rental pool when the leaseholder is out of the park. We were given site 660, which is roughly 55'x70', just down the road from the clubhouse. It has a large heated pool, two spas kept at different temps and a really nice library. Other highlights include two dog parks and 70 acres of desert trails, two work shops, three laundries and showers, 4 pickleball courts, 400 scheduled activities a month and the nicest folks you could meet.
Jojoba doesn't take reservations, so if there is no leased sites available when you arrive, you can use the boondock area, which is also the nicest we have seen, with it's own laundry and restrooms. The new craft center is located in the boondock area, too.
Any guest has free use of all the facilities. All of this was built and is maintained by volunteers who live here. Very impressive. - bobcovey

Great RV Resort. Everyone is very friendly; park is kept in great shape by the volunteering residents. It has a large heated pool and two hot tubs. Also a very large clubhouse. There are two laundries. All sites are taken by residents. but escapee members
can rent vacant sites while residents are gone. - USAF1

What a great park! Members perform most tasks on a volunteer basis and obviously enjoy doing so. Beautiful vistas, including the one fron the outside spa (yes...there is an indoor one too). Exercise room is excellent. Didn't try the wifi as we use a Verizon Jet Pack that worked perfectly. Cell tower is on property. Large facility with swimming, several ponds, two dog runs and well planned/designed. Hope to return soon. - Cochise

This campground is small but sweet. The lake access sites are great for smaller rigs. The level sites for big rigs are on the top of the campground. The views of the lake are terrific here. If you have a kayaks bring it. We had a good time with my sister’s kayak. The staff keep the campground clean. I saw fishing boats, water skiing boats & kayaks on the lake. The birding was good. We had a nice time with our friends camping at Canyon Lake. If we're invited back I would love to camp here again. - Seize the Day RV Adventures
