33 Parks near Valley Center, 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

Golf course and a number of swimming pools restrooms and laundry rooms. - User3771

We were able to select a site with a view of the ocean and right next to the stairs to get down to the ocean. Felt nice and private. There are washing stations to rinse off your sandy feet as well. The showers cost tokens (which we were totally fine with), were nice and very private.
Generators are only allowed from 10am to 8pm which was unfortunate (we usually cook breakfast around 8am).
Very friendly, nice on-site convenience store (you can even rent body and surf boards).
Lots of people, hardly any vacant sites. The sites were large. - 10 Thompsons

We stayed in an ocean side site and the view was beautiful. Our site wasn't very level, but I think it was just that site as others looked fine. We were in a site with no hookups, but a water spigot was right across the street. In fact, water spigots and bath houses were plentiful throughout the campground.
The first night we were there, the people in the site next to us sneaked in outside guests and partied and played the radio til 1:00 in the morning. They were pretty loud but fortunately I was in a trailer and it wasn't too bad, but still rude and inconsiderate of other campers. I felt sorry for the people nearby camping in a tents and the people across from us who had little kids. To my surprise, early the next morning the park ranger evicted the party crowd, so beware, they do enforce quiet time rules. Other than that the campground was quiet and peaceful. It was a great place to walk on the beach and ride bikes. The restrooms were plentiful and cleaned often. It was relaxing watching the surfers and we saw dolphins and seals playing in the water.
Unfortunately, the next night it rained heavily and our campsite turned into a duck pond with 3 to 4 inches of water covering at least half of it. It was still raining heavily in the morning so we just packed up and left. So between the party crowd keeping us up and the rain, it wasn't the best of trips. I'd like to go back some day and try it again though. - Suru

This is an older park which is just a little shabby, but if you can get one of the ocean front sites. The views are spectacular. Many of the sites are so wide you can park your rig sideways or at an angle to the ocean. The sites are literally right on the edge of the bluff with a 180 degree ocean view right outside your door! This campground gets busy on weekends in the winter with families and groups of surfers, but it was not very noisy and never felt very congested because of the size of the sites and the openness on the ocean side. I imagine it is full all summer long. The sound of the ocean drowned out traffic and generator noise pretty well. I would return here in a heartbeat, but only on the ocean side. If I were on the other side of the road, I would rate it about a 6. - MrSunshine

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

We were there with a group, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The park itself is very clean and well maintained. A nice pet area. Spaces are a little tight, but large RVs had no trouble getting in. Absolutely no fires allowed (propane or wood) but they have BBQ grills in the pool area. - mosyn

We were just passing thru and stayed for 2 nights. Best rate we found for a site with hook-ups. The site was concrete with a picnic table and patio. We have a 37 ft motorthome and we fit, but it is tight. Full hook-up, but the cable is being worked on so we ended up using the dish. For a short stay it works for us because we are traveling thru so we don't need a lot of space. Plan on be gone during the day anyway. Train did not bother us, not much noise and I don't think it runs at night. - belanga

$82 a night is ridiculous! Good Sam brought the price down to $75 -- but hardly worth the price! When you're desperate for a place to stay, I guess that's what has to be paid. The park is cramped, has small sites, no parking, no walking area for pets (there is a small fenced area covered with sawdust-type bark). Lots of long-term residents (although not sure why that is!). We were required to park on our site which in turn requires us to push through foliage get to the street. Long-termers are allowed to park on the street which is going to make it extremely difficult to get out when we leave. Also, the noisy train was a real pleasure (not!). - retditto

I am rating the RV Park itself. Sites are extremely small and narrow. We could not open our awning because a small tree was between our site and another site. There was no room behind us and even though we are only 29' long, no room in front. The people in the RV's in front of us (across the street) partied but they were sitting behind their RV and almost on the street. A train goes by and it very loud. They have a pool & hot tub but we decided not to in either. The pool looked clean but the hot tub was milky looking. We decided to sit by the pool while I did the laundry. That is when people started coming into the pool with their small children (like ages 2-5). The kids went mainly into the hot tub. Seeing that age of kids in the hot tub explains why the water in it was not clean. The parents brought the kids into the big pool as well. So no pool for us. They have a man that works there that was rude to us twice. The second time was when I went to do my laundry. The laundry door was open. I went it and put my laundry in the washing machine. I was just getting ready to put the quarters in when he yells at me that I have to get out. He said the laundry was closed between noon and 1 and it was noon. I told him I didn't know that and he said it was posted on the door and pointed to the sign. Since the door was open I didn't look at any signs. He said I had to leave and come back at 1. Sorry, that is rude. He could have done the same thing and be nice about it. So I was not happy with the RV park itself. - RVpartyanimal

Hosts were friendly and very attentive! Location leads you to believe you are on the beach. Not so! Park is surrounded by a gated fence for security which has a code for access. You must follow the path under the railroad trestle, and yes Amtrack trains go by frequently day and night, through a public park with many homeless in residence and cross the street to a public beach which is dirty and less than desirable for swimming access. Nowhere to walk for restaurant access or shopping to experience local atmosphere. We left after one night and drove up the Pacific Hwy. - Sabrina Smith

Would give this park and 8 or 9 if they did more for security. The area is definitely not the nicest. A family staying by the road had a bike stolen, lock cut, so the thieves come prepared. Also told by someone that was using their parking for beach access that the code for the door to get on the path for the beach hasn't been changed maybe ever. It is nice short walk to the beach from the campground, but would not recommend taking your kids to the park that is on the way. Also would not recommend taking that path too long after dark. - Rolling Daleys

We stay in this park every year for the Thanksgiving weekend, and love it every time. We reserve early, so we get the site we like, which is more private than some of the other sites, which would work good for a group. The campground rangers (yes, they are rangers, not hosts) put on great programs for the kids, including night walks, bouncy ball games, and various crafts, as well as evening slide presentations; reminds me of the old days of camping when I was a kid!! The facilities are always spotless, the people friendly, and the location of the park is ideal for trips to the mountains, or down to San Diego to visit the waterfront or the zoo. And, don't miss the cinnamon rolls at the Ramona Cafe, down in town. - Campfamily123

We stayed here with our church group for the annual camping trip. The park was very nice with lots of shade trees and spacious sites. The kids enjoyed the large playground and small hiking trail that went through the back of the campground. Our site had water and electrical and there was a dump site on the premises. The dump got a little busy at checkout time, but there was no pressure to be out immediately. I saw someone cleaning all the campsites right at checkout time to make sure they were in good shape for the new campers. The bathrooms were fairly clean, but had no soap of any kind and sometimes was low on toilet paper. It is very close to town and easy to get to. We saw many people catching fish in the pond and playing on the large grassy area. - amarion

Nice clean park. Restrooms clean but no hot water available at sink for shaving and are not heated. Park like setting with narrow roads and each site is a different size, some with parking, some not. Sites seemed space well. We called the ranger's station prior to make sure our site had a place for our truck. If you stay and like to hike Iron Mt. and Mt. Woodson are within 10 minutes drive. All and all we liked the park but gave it a 7 due to the above. - EyePod

Have been back for another stay since Sept. Amazed to see so much remodeling. Trees trimmed, clubhouse is beautiful with a turf landscaping, adding a kitchen, bocci ball, community propane fire pit. Lake is full from rains and Canadian geese. All cabins remodeled with new furniture. Enjoyed the spa with new friends. This park will be a great destination resort. - Lucy13

Best kept secret private park now open to the public. Sites are nestled in huge oak and pepper trees. Pool is huge and very clean as well as the spa. Children playground and huge dog run is just a few amenities this park offers. Near Julian and lots of wineries. - Fischer

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
Nov 2013 - $47.00
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
