This is a very nice park in a rural setting. The cell service is rather sketchy, but if you walk up the nearby hills, it works fine (US Cellular or Verizon). If you desire to use your satellite dish ask for one of the sites with fewer trees. Other than a chorus of coyotes howling, this was the quietest park I've ever stayed in. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. We were in site D6 with 50 amp service, it backed up to a berm so we didn't have anyone behind us and the site was plenty wide enough for our slides. The interior roads are paved but the sites are compacted dirt/gravel. There are many sites with shade trees. The grounds are kept clean as are the common ares: the pool, the pond, the grassy center, etc. The new managers are always driving around and making sure everything is good. They are quick to take care of any concerns. The WIFI was spotty and there isn't any cable, and there is no cell service at the park, but our satellite dish worked great. This park is also a 15 - 20 min drive from downtown Temecula but the drive is through the wine country and past some beautiful horse ranches. This park may not be for everyone, but it is the kind of park we look for when we travel. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here twice. Our RV club likes to stay here. Here are the reasons why am I not going with the other higher reviews. . 1. Small entrance road that two motor homes could not pass in. And backing up there is not safe or easy. 2. Wi-Fi poor to not working. Did not work better at club house. 3. Fine dirt throughout the park. My wife and I repeatedly had to clean all surfaces in coach. 4. No cell signal. I have Verizon. Don't know if others work. 5. A lot of sites including ours only 30 amps. This was not enough to cool our coach down in 98 degree weather. 6. Big trees blocked our satellite internet. 7. It is not close to things like groceries. 20 minute drive for groceries. 8. Dirt sites. This place needs pavement or grass to cut down on the fine dust everywhere for it's sites. If you like to camp at places with issues such as the ones above then you will like this place. I would have to say that there are amenities on site which are quite nice. A pond with fish in it. Kids like that. Nice big Oaks. Very good jeep roads close by. Good hikes close in. A little zoo. Nice people for check in and working in the park. So if they fixed the dust by paving the sites or grassing, fixed the Wi-Fi, and ungraded the 30 amp to 50 amp, . I would rate this park about an 8. They should also ask you if you are going to use satellite when you check in. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I'm not too excited about this park, but it worked for us as an overnight stop. Bathroom/restrooms were clean. Free coffee in the morning next to the office. Sites were level, but the park was a little bit dusty. Wi-Fi worked poorly. It was one of those occasions when it had been better not to have Wi-Fi at all, rather than getting a weak signal, waiting for the connection, waiting for the website to respond, seeing the connection breaking down again and so on. I don't remember the exact rate, but I think it was over 40 bucks - which I think is a bit too pricy for the value. Which leads me to another point of criticism, you can't find the rates on their website. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

$29 reflects weekly rate. This RV park boasts natural beauty. It is nestled in the Southern CA mountains with 360 views from its walking trails. It is the most quiet RV park we've ever visited. The whole park is on level hard-packed sand with asphalt drives. The immediate area is wineries, fruit orchards and horse farms. There are a few exotic animals and a small catch and release fishing pond. Cell phones don't work here but the office provides access 24/7 to a phone. Wi-Fi was slow at our site. Our DISH reception was great and we got all the local Los Angeles TV stations from our antenna. There's an adequate camp store. Park is managed by work campers. We were not allowed to keep our dirt bikes at our site; a rule to minimize noise (although our dirt bikes are so quiet; quieter than the work carts used by park personnel). We will return to this park. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We *loved* our stay! We came for the Temecula Balloon Festival. Skinner got fogged in, so the launches were very close to Tucalota. All the staff members were very helpful and friendly, even the gentleman who answered the phone after 9 PM when we were stuck in the festival parking lot and needed Tucalota to keep the gate open a little late for us. Stayed in D5, the widest site in the place. Our site was 30 amps and the breaker tripped while we ran electric water heater and A/C to cool down a high 80s day. Switched to gas water heater while AC cooled the trailer, then back to electric. No problems after that. Many great trails to for the family and dog to explore. Great swimming pool. Wi-Fi showed up in pool area, but required a password, so we didn’t try it. Price reflects festival weekend rate. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Love that rustic old fashion feel of an RV Park? Well then you will love Tucalota Springs RV Park located just east of Temecula Wine Country of the Temecula Valley. This quaint RV Park is nestled in the foothills near Glen Oaks of the Temecula Valley. The RV Park has giant gorgeous Oak Trees that meander throughout the RV Park. If your camping in the summer like we did, you want to make sure you book a site with an Oak Tree to shade your RV. Sites B-2 through B-5 are shade tree sites that I would recommend or you can ask the Park for other shade sites. RV Park has clean showers and great bathroom facilities and also has a sparkling blue pool to swim. The Drawback to this park is all sites are dirt, and there is no Cell nor is there good Internet service there at the RV Park. If you do work on the road and rely on these services, I would not recommend this RV Park as a stay for any on the road RV business person or persons. I would have given this park a much higher ranking if it were not for the drawbacks I just mentioned. Our Rainbow RV Group loves the rustic feel of this RV Park and this is our second year we have held our Hot Air Balloon Rally at this Park. This Park would be a 10 only if it had all gravel sites. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park and the staff is friendly. Some sites are tight. No pull through sites, but they are nice and level. Each site has a fire pit and many trees. Satellite may be difficult, bring your portable. No cell phone reception and no Wi-Fi. Great park for the kids because of the pond. Very quiet and a great getaway. Will stay here again.

We go here all the time. it's the perfect getaway that's close to home yet far away from the hustle and bustle. The grounds are awesome with lots of shade trees. The bathrooms are the best we've ever seen. The fishing pond is totally awesome. On good days you can pull a fish out every couple of minutes. It's great for our kids because they feel like they are accomplishing something. My son pulled a huge catfish out (that was the highlight of the yeah) and the next trip my husband pulled an even bigger one! The people are incredibly friendly. The little country store has just about everything. There is horseshoe pits, a petting zoo and a great grassy area. There is no cell service inside the park but you can go to the entrance and use it if needed. The front office has a rec room with leather couches a TV with Directv and a computer. We recommend Tucalota to everyone we know. We go several times a year and even spent last Thanksgiving there. It really is an amazing place!

Stayed here Fathers Day weekend, in a great shaded site under an oak tree (C14). NOT crowded at all. All sites were large and well maintained, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The fishing pond is great for the kids, and is catch a release only. Saw lots of perch caught and a couple of large catfish. We enjoyed the little zoo, and my wife loved feeding the bunnies vegetables. A little out of the way but worth the trip. Great campground we look forward to going again soon.

This is just a quiet little park to relax and enjoy the oak trees. My wife and I liked the laid back, friendly atmosphere. Not a lot of extra activities like at the nearby lake RV park, but sometimes that's just what we like. Nice staff, affordable rates.

The campground was very nice. The place is 20 miles from any significant town. We couldn't even find a small mom and pop restaurant or store nearby. So it's important that you plan ahead (including gas: none nearby). Tucalota is great if you want a "throwback" camping experience. The campground has a fishing pond, a petting zoo (with emus and ostriches), horseshoe pits, a basketball court and a ball field. There were a few folks catching fish at the catch-and-release pond. There's also shaded areas with picnic tables. Also a real nice pool out front. Lots of things to do to keep the kids busy. However, those addicted to the modern conveniences of cell phones and Wi-Fi will not be happy. Cell coverage was non-existent and the owner has shut down Wi-Fi access as it was through a Hughes Satellite link and "people kept tying it up downloading pictures and stuff" (quote from owner). So, if you are willing to walk to the lounge out front (open 24 hours), there is a computer that can be used, but the connection suffers from the typical satellite issues: high speed downloads but with latency due to the satellite distance. Usable but not great. The lounge is well appointed and also has a TV with DirecTV service, and a coffee pot available with free coffee while the adjacent store is open. The sites range from tight to roomy and about 70% are back-ins and 30% are pull-ins (hookups to the left). I'd avoid those latter sites. They are clearly labeled on the map downloadable from the web site. The place was very quiet for a summer weekend. I'd say about 20% occupancy. We had site D5, which had adequate shade and was very big with great privacy. Nice folks running the facility, and for us, a very pleasant overall experience. We plan on going back.

We really loved this park. The park is smaller than others but that is what makes it great. You feel like your living on a ranch. They have a few animals which the kids loved. Fishing is fun, my husband caught a big one in about an hour. This park is very clean and well kept! The grass areas are very green and inviting. The staff, including the Manager was very friendly and accommodating . The lounge is great, you can use the phone, computer, or just relax and watch TV. Tons of hiking trails and it is a nice area: Wine Country. This is great for families the only reason I did not rate it perfect is because it needs a playground area, the one here is a small jungle gym and that's it. If they were to build a small playground area this place would be a perfect 10. Our 4 kids enjoyed it and can't wait to go back. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderfully lovely people work in this park! They were very helpful in every aspect. Park is rustic and quiet and very well maintained. Sites are sand/grass and some have shade trees. Just a great, quiet getaway and close to Hemet and Temecula. If you want the perfect peaceful holiday, come here. We camped at Tucalota Springs RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
