32 Parks near Temecula, California
Mar 2016 - $24.00
Private ownership of each lot and with different buildouts. Our lot was on the Mesa and had an outdoor kitchen and fire pit and some furniture. A pull-in site with a lake view. Paid $625 plus $70 for electric for a month. Additional $125 for their golf cart which was nice to have. There are a lot of sites for rent/sale so look at all of them before you make your choice. Lots of grass around the park which was great for our dog. There is also a large grassy dog park. Some activities. No wifi at site but strong Verizon signal for hotspot. Cable with many channels. Lot owners were very friendly to us. Only down side is that it is 18 miles to Temecula on a 2 lane curvy road. We never made the drive after dark and don't think I would want to. All the shopping you need is in Temecula though and a wonderful farmer's market. - thekites

This is a reservation only, privately owned, destination type resort located 20 minutes east of Temecula on Hwy 79. Plenty of sites available for rent: Class A and 5th Wheel rigs (no toy haulers at this post), and I believe the 10-year rule is adhered to as well. Best to contact the on-site Fairway Associates team Monday through Saturday 10-4, as these friendly professionals will answer any questions and get you set-up for a weekend, the winter or life. Choices range from golf course or panoramic views, close to clubhouses and pools or against the perimeter fence and back-country ambiance.
We've over wintered here for years, first in a 32' Class A with tow car, now with a 43' 5'ver. Love it.
Dog friendly, however not much to entertain children. (There IS room to fly a kite and a cool little fishing pond.) Amenities and activities are structured for drinking age adults.
No food or fuel, so fill up on both before heading out of Temecula. There is on-site propane service. - FosterImposters

Out of the way. Great setting.
Golf course and a number of swimming pools restrooms and laundry rooms. - User3771

Great little county park just a few miles from lots of services, restaurants and stores. It's located in a slight depression so we can't see the homes that are slowly encroaching on the park. There is some traffic noise but it abates after all the commuters get home.
The asphalt sees are mostly shaded and have a patio, picnic table and fire ring. - LM&TinView

We made reservations to stay four night, but had to cancel five days before our arrival. Guajome has a 30 day cancellation policy within which no refunds are given. This is far different than private parks which either impose no charge or at most charge one night's stay when a cancellation is made a short time before arrival. - RaySc

A real find for this area. a few sites are suitable for 40+ foot rigs, but most are a better fit for smaller RVs.
The park covers over a hundred acres with miles of trails and a lake. All sites have water and 30 amp power. All have tables and fire rings. The camp hosts sell firewood at competitive prices. The showers are good, with plenty of hot water. - bobcovey

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

We stayed here for three nights in the middle of the week. This is truly a resort atmosphere. Checking in was very professional and even that felt like we were checking into a resort. The roads are nice and wide as are the sites. The back-in sites are wide concrete pads with nice green grass on both sides and hedges in back. There is casino construction going on but that did not bother us at all. The pool and hot tub were very nice, although we only used the hot tub. Wifi was excellent. The staff was constantly cleaning and landscaping. The dog park was nice and although not huge it did have plenty of room for all sizes of dogs. - akeller156

What a well-run RV Resort! This was our first time staying, and it won't be our last. All the hook-ups worked flawlessly and the park was very well maintained. All the staff were friendly and eager to help. The pool and spas were immaculate with perfect water temperatures; I wish they had bar service! The dog park was a little small, but it had grass, dirt, and large pebbles. I think it's geared towards smaller dogs because the surrounding fence isn't that tall. I could imagine a larger, leaping dog can jump over it. It looks like the casino is expanding; there was major construction going on. It didn't affect the RV park.
Two gripes: 1. The cable didn't broadcast in HD. 2. Our site was kinda close to the delivery dock for the casino. We heard trucks with their back-up alarms throughout the night. - Arash

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

Very nice and quiet. The FHU's are up top unless you're monthly. It's a little tight and laid out somewhat randomly. The dump station is also up top and very inconvenient, and the sign at the dump station apologizes for it. Says it can't be helped. - FLtravelers

Just stayed 3 nights in a travel trailer at Woods Valley Kampground. We thought we had come to the wrong place at first, but it turned out to be a pretty good little camping spot! We rented spot #P5 which is a full hook-up site and is close to the swimming pool (not intentional, but we had no choice). When we arrived on the Thursday. It seemed like the park was empty except for the permanent residents who take up ALL of roadrunner flats, quail heights, and the area we were in - P. Actually, I think we were the ONLY full hook up spot that was not occupied by a full time resident. Thursday night was super quiet which was a great getaway from the traffic noise in orange county! The manager was great! Very helpful and friendly. Also, that they were trying to "tidy up" the park. Friday morning was blissful and so relaxing but by Friday afternoon an influx of families and children arrived, mostly in tents and travel campers, killing the quietness of the campground. Campers who were behind us in "boomerang" were up Saturday morning at 5:45am letting the kids run free! I'm all for a good time, but 5:45am really? I did venture into the restrooms to wash my hands after packing up, and I'm very glad to report that I have my own bathroom in my trailer to use! A little on the dirty side, but it was Sunday so that may have been why? If you are looking for a little piece and quiet in a relaxing setting, I suggest camping here during the weekdays, which we intend to do next time. And, If you have children, join in the madness on the weekends. It's kid heaven and they will love it. - kiwi14

Woods Valley is a nice campground and all in all I can recommend it. Stayed there for about a week. Pros: friendly and helpful staff, with very nice surroundings. As the name suggests, it's in the woods. It has an ATM and I suppose it's quite adventurous for children. Cons: In my opinion, it is a little bit too pricey compared to other campgrounds I've been. Wi-Fi is availabe but only in/near the office. You can conveniantly sit on a bench infront of the office to use it, though. - Chbronson

Very nice park. Free and strong wi-fi. Good cable TV. Many spaces are mostly gravel, with a small cement patio area. I think there could be a lot less gravel and more cement! The pool area is spectacular - 3 beautiful pools. The only reason I gave them 9 stars and not 10 is that the trash facilities are inadquate. It's a hugh 600 space park and there's only 2 trash bins, one on the east side and one on the west. They come around and pick up the trash at your site once a week. REALLY - once a WEEK! Who only has trash once a week?!! We also had an ant problem and had to spread cleanser around the tires. They need to insectiside the spots when they empty and keep the bushes trimmed better. But the office was nice about coming out and spraying when I called them. The asst. manager was very nice and helpful. They also need to provide a table at the sites; there aren't any. The park has lots of activities during the season. However we were there in July and the activities were over. - Scimastr

We retired out of Temecula. We'd driven thru this area many times over the years without realizing there was even a park here (even though it has its own dedicated stop light). When we visit the Temecula area, we have two parks we generally use. Both have shortcomings. A third, our favorite, a little known gem on the shores of Lake Elsinore, was booked solid. So we thought we'd try Golden Village Palms. What a great find! We took advantage of a special rate ($139/week) for a very nice back-in site. (We were given a couple of sites to choose from, which I really appreciated.) The park is huge, with a lot of different types of sites, many recently renovated. This is an 'active adults' park. Kids are allowed for up to 2 weeks so they can babysit their grandparents. Visiting kids are restricted to certain areas & must be supervised. Our site backed up to Devonshire road. Traffic noise could be an issue unless you employ white noise. Wifi was taxed when park was heavily occupied. Our initial 2 week stay evolved into a 3 months (constructing a home in nearby Murrieta). We found the staff to be excellent. The local communities are lower socioeconomic. Nearby Temecula & Murrieta offer a tremendous variety of shopping & recreational activities. If you are so inclined, the outstanding 412 church, associated with Calvary Chapel, is nearby. - biosensai

We stopped here on our way to Arizona to see some friends and ended up cancelling the trip to Arizona and staying for two months! It is a nice park in a not-so-nice city, with lots of lawn areas, shade trees and hedges for privacy.
As others have noted, there is LOTS to do, with pickleball, horse shoes, volleyball, an indoor shuffleboard stadium, three pools and activities indoors to keep anyone entertained and occupied. We were struck by how nice the people staying here are, and met lots of Canadians and American residents fleeing the snow.
We had a great back-in site with three trees and a hedge. One of the fruit trees was in bloom and the smell of the blossoms was incredible. They allow canopies, so we got one, set up our little camp site, with a propane fire pit and chairs and created a little slice of heaven.
In our two months at GVP, we met a number of great folks, some of whom will be life-long friends. We will definitely be back. - Tee Gysin

This is our second stay here, we first visited in May 2015. Looks like they have put in new paving on their driveways. It's an average park with dirt sites, 50 amp service and cable connections. They seem to have a large number of longer stay guests. We had site 217 which gives a nice unobstructed view of the lake and pretty sunrises. The staff provides good service and all seem friendly. You can get PA pricing for one night. - Coopsecondact

Very short sites, impossible for a 40 footer to stay in your half of sites. Very noisy traffic from every site! Lake is very pretty but few sites have views . Not a good park for dogs as not much grass, only dirt and rocks. I wouldn't stay here again. They do have propane and storage area. - IowaGirl

We stayed one week. Dirt ground with very little grass I will assume due the drought. Weekend, the place fills up with locals which all behaved. Sites are short. It seems two spaces should be one. Was not a problem as a small trailer occupied behind our 40 footer so they must manage. No way 2 40 footers could get in. Traffic is loud. People rushing off to work starting at 4:30 Am on tha main road. Sirens etc through the night. No fault of the park. Marina is nice and boat ramp. Security during the weekend. Wifi worked great and we used our antenna. We toured so cal each day, so it met our needs. Would stay here again. - rdmike

We stayed for the July 4th weekend and had a great time. The staff was polite and responsive. The bathrooms were clean enough. There were 3 showers for the women but small with no benches or ledges for your things.
The pool was clean and refreshing. We had electricity and water at the campsite, but not septic.
When we made our reservations they said we had to bring our own fire pit, but when we got there, they had put one on our site. Then on the second day they installed a BBQ for cooking near our picnic table, which was nice as we did most of our cooking outdoors.
The only problem we had was with campers next to us. A large party on several sites, they were loud, drinking and using foul language late into the night. Despite having "quiet hour" at 10 PM, no one did a thing, as the office was closed. So we were up late, trying to enjoy our own fire, but had to listen to that late into the night. We especially didn't appreciate our young boys having to endure that kind of language, the topics, etc.
We complained the next day. They were given a warning. We were given a phone number to call/text if it happened again w the promise they'd be 'escorted' out. However the next night it happened again, lasting well past 3 AM. I texted the number they gave us at 1 AM, but once again no enforcement.
We complained the next day and they said they didn't have anyone to patrol the campgrounds at night or enforce the rules because their security guard wanted 40 hours (full time work) but they didn't have a need for that. I asked why they didn't have someone just for the holiday weekend.
All in all, it was a good time despite the lack of sleep due to the lack of enforcement of the rules. - BarbaraD

This place was out of the way from most all of San Diego attractions. We thought it would be nice to get away from the city in general. We were told to just choose any site we wanted, after we waited for almost an hour, while someone was on their lunch. What they didn't mention was that there were no sewer hook-ups, as had been advertised. There were only 2 showers for the women, and 1 of them should not even be used. The washers and dryers are outside and exposed to all the elements and everyone. Also, no cable and our cell phones did not work. Many, many full-time residents with cars and trucks coming and going at all hours of the day and night. The Border Patrol even made a stop. We will never go here again or recommend this place to anyone. - justthe2ofus

Unfortunately the restrooms at this campground are a disaster. Not only are they in serious need of general repair (tiles falling off walls, doors rotting, etc.), the sewer/septic system does not work properly and the staff need to learn how to clean! I looked at the same toilet paper covering the floors for 3 days. Absolutely disgusting. The showers were not any cleaner and we opted to take a splash in the pool as a daily rinse. - My House is a Tent

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
