This was a nice park with nice grassy areas to walk the dog. Some sites, believe in Loop A & B have lake views. We were in C and while we didn't have the lake view, we did have some pretty views of rolling hills. It was a pretty dusty area and there was no pad next to RV. There is access to a boat ramp, which we didn't use. You can't swim in the lake. There was a deli on premises and a store. Some wineries were very close, it was about 25 minutes to Old Town. Spots were long enough, a little close, but we did have room to put out both slides and our awning. There was no separation between sites. Our picnic table was a little beat up. - dorcol

This is a big park with a lot of sites. Great areas of grass for playing games and lots of roads and trails to bike a bit. - Californication

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

Wow....just WOW! This was our first stay at this Thousand Trails Resort and being members of TT I have to say that this park is one of our favorites. We are a couple (he, 51 and her 46) that recently chose to live in our RV full time for the adventure of travel but this park makes us want to stay put. The VERIZON signal was good enough to stream movies without being boosted. TV signals with our cheapo TV antenna pulled in quit a few local channels and while we do not have satellite TV our neighbors had no problem using their Tailgater system despite the beautiful shade trees. The sights are the biggest I have seen in any park I have ever stayed in although some sights are bigger than others I have not seen any site on the small side and we walked through the park daily. There is a quiet and heated adult pool with a hot tub and two showers as well a a HUGE family pool with two more hot tubs. The Family Pool is right next to the snack bar and family rec hall. There is also an adult rec hall near the adult pool. This park also has a gym with a weight machine, treadmills and elliptical machines. It is not a huge gym but it is as big if not bigger than most Hotel gyms. The normal Pickle Ball and Shuffle Board courts in really nice condition. Campers here seem to all be in a good mood and friendly. In our 3 weeks here we were invited to several cocktail hours and dinners just from hanging out at the pool or hot tub. We made great new friends here and can not wait to return. There is shopping of all kinds close by. There does seem to be a lot of flies around here but they are certainly not a show stopper. Also the water fowl will practically come up to your door and knock for a free hand out. We were here in the spring so the baby ducklings and geese were a lot of fun to have visit our site daily for their feeding. If you are a walker, walk around the outside perimeter road (and don't cut corners) it is exactly 1.25 miles per lap(4 laps get you 5 miles) - JBnDD

Dissapointed. If you've never been here before, I would recommend not arriving after dark. Payment for site is collected at the guard shack, prior to being let in. You'll be giving a map, informed which are the 50 amp, 30 amp, and which sites are privately owned. We drove around, with car in tow, looking for a site along with a few other RVers, mostly circling the 50 amp sites with no luck. Frustrated, I went back to the guard shack and told them to find me a site, or give me a refund, it was at this time I was informed that more than likely, no 50 amp are available, and I should probably go to the back end of the park where the 30 amp smaller sites are. Lots of trees, and lots of dead leaves on the ground. Sites are dirt with some pea gravel (not enough). The water canals are murky green. The heated pool was about 76 - 78 deg, we didn't last long, neither did other swimmers we saw. Train ride is available for 25 cents, weekends only, miniature golf available, we didn't see anyone playing. We won't return. - RV-luvin

Has a family lodge for the kids and a separate Adult Lodge for the seniors who like peace and quiet. Train ( miniature ) rides are offered on week ends. 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

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

This was a very nice RV Resort. I was impressed with how clean and well-kept it was. Landscaping was lovely. We had a pull thru site that must have been about 90' long. It was nice gravel and had a patio made with pavers. The pool area is very nice (3 pools and 3 hot tubs but all in the same area). I do wish to come back. My rating is a 10 but if there was a 9.5 I would say that because the only thing wrong was the WIFI did not work all the time. These RV Parks need to work on that! The park was close to shopping. It seemed quiet; however, we did go during mid April so many of the snowbirds had left. We totally enjoyed staying there. It was a nice place! - JackieD

We saw an online special for $180 for one week so we joined some friends at this park. It is a very large park that really packs in the rigs. Very tight lot spacing. Some trees in certain areas of the park and a really nice large fenced in dog area. People that we talked to said they return each year not due to the park itself but because of the friends they have made there. There is ALOT of activities going on so it would be easy to make friends in this park. People seemed very friendly in the week we were there. Very nice large pool area and pickleball courts. An amazing indoor shuffleboard area with stadium seating. One issue we heard a lot about - lots of bike thefts in the area including at the RV resort. Folks were recommending buying a huge chain to lock up your bikes or store them in your rig. - Nautical Wheelers

It was hard to communicate with the office. It was closed when it was suppose to be open. When there, the help was good. I requested a few thing to be taken care of and half was done. The dog area was clean. The gate fell down a couple of time and was poorly repaired. I am presently having a problem with management. I had to leave on an emergency and I requested a refund. That was denied. Be careful not to sign up more then needed. the monthly is $579. - Jimmyk

This park is huge and right in the middle of an extensive retail area. Grocery shopping, fast food, movie theater all within short walking distance. There was a complimentary "Harvest Feast" the week of Thanksgiving that was catered, and pleasant. Lots of activities going on all the time: poker nights, shuffleboard, cribbage, craft night, etc. The new pickle ball courts are really nice. The pool is heated, and the hot tub is large, deep and covered -- enjoyable in any weather. The showers are large and clean, and the residents are friendly. There is a mix of short term, long term, and permanent tenants. Some of the spaces have been improved with park model style units and landscaping that looks professional. There are also some older rigs that look like they haven't been moved in a decade. Lots of snowbirds, some of which have been coming to this place for 15+ years. If we could have afforded it, we would have stayed through the entire winter. Sites are close together, but have paved patios and an extra parking space for your tow vehicle. Some sites have a storage shed available as well. We didn't pay for the Wi-Fi, but our Sprint coverage was excellent. - Fezzik_Mallard

I stayed here with a group. The park is older but they are working on it. They are currently converting back-to-back sites to pull-throughs. The sites are a bit close. Close to stores and restaurants. We will return. - TripleE

Here's the pros, electric works 50amp and 30 amp. Lots of sewer smells from vents and long term residents with old rigs scattered around the park! We stayed here 2 winters and probably won't be back! The pool decking is dilapidated and covering falling off! Men's bathroom has Black Mold all through the cabinets. When you take a shower, water fills up and you have to stand in dirty as drains are very slow. Asphalt in entire park is crumbling and you will constantly track it into your rig. Several RVers have had their bicycles stolen over a 4 month period, lots of homeless people outside on streets of Hemet. The spa pool is old and not very clean, overall not a great RV experience. Probably will never return as no improvements at all over a years time as we were told there would be. - seaguy

This park was supposed to get a major upgrade from the owner of the day but due to a legal issue the ownership changed. Resort was the name given by previous owner and referred to what the park was going to be redeveloped into. This didn't happen and the park is inhabited mainly by low income people. There are also thefts occurring and stories of drug dealing. The spaces are tight and the sites and roadways are run down. The manager is pleasant and helpful, but doesn't have a clue about what snowbirds and winter escapees are looking for in a resort. - Britcanuck

NOT a resort! Almost nothing for activities, save for a puny bingo game on Wed. nights and an ice cream social (costs a buck, two for a root beer float) on Saturday. I realize it is summer, but what 'resort' doesn't have activities? The clubhouse has no air conditioning, RV spaces are tiny and close together, very few trees so no shade, mostly permanent residents, many old dilapidated units, several old mobiles located in park. Manager is pleasant enough, but assistant is an admitted pothead who is rude and complains constantly about how she doesn't have enough time to do all the work they demand from her. Although the facilities are clean, it is more a place that caters to low-income permanent residents who have nowhere else to go. They should be ashamed to call this place a resort. - Traveler112349

Rate is Passport America. Can accommodate RV's up to 30'. This is hard seal camping in a secure, gated carpark at the back of a large mobile home complex. The complex is clean and tidy and the people friendly. Full lookups but the restrooms nearby were locked. We were asked if we were self sufficient for restrooms and so I don't know if they are ever used. A pristine pool and jacuzzi are open to RV'ers and you are able to use the showers and restrooms here. Laundry facilities available. You need to check in the office first, show vehicle registration papers and ID, and pay a $50 refundable deposit for a gate opener to the RV section. It isn't a destination stop but more than adequate for a place to stop while passing through to somewhere else. We would stay here again. - Monaire Corporati

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

Small little fishing lake. I enjoyed this park. Had a good time. The park was easy to navigate. The spaces with hookups were easy to use. The over appearance was good. It's what you would expect from a small fishing lake. Everything I used worked fine. - frosty316
Dec 2014 - $35.00
Overall a fair place to camp or rest for a couple of days or so, if you can become accustomed to the swarms of flies and the smell of the dairy farm close by. I don't believe that the lake(s) have been stocked for fishing in a long time. The manager was friendly and courteous enough to make it all worthwhile for a short period of time anyway. But once again, similar to the situation at "Diamond Valley" park--There are
predominantly long-term or "permanent" residents here that have allowed the general maintenance & appearance of the park to slowly degrade to the point of being falsely Identified as a "shantytown". - Mark Yamahammer

Rate is Passport America. This is an older place that is primarily a fishing park. The is a lot of dirt and very little grass. Showers are pay for use. Lot of full time residents. - Tampajohn

I was staying at the upper levels, I had beautiful views to the sourrounding mountains. The lake is far down, you can hardly see it.
They have accepted my Passport America discount for one night and my Good Sam discount for the other night I've spent here.
The sites are pretty large, gravel but not very level. You better bring your leveling blocks.
There is a lot to do here. Even though the pools are not heated, the pool area is closed for the winter; in the summer this place is fantastic for families. It is a huge park, lots of open space, kids are freely roaming around everywhere. There is mini-golf, ping pong, pickle ball, volleyball, basketball courts. For the summer there is a water slide separate from the pool area.
I found a 1.5-mile long nature trail, which was very nice, but there are other hiking and biking opportunities in the area. You can walk down to the lake for example. The lake is farther down, I didn't end up going because it was raining the second day.
There is a convenience store by the main building, where you can buy some basic camping items and snacks.
I saw a cafe attached to a nice outdoors area with a stage but it wasn't open. They are making it ready for the upcoming New Years Eve party. Who knew that New Year Eve is a huge camping holiday?
I would not ever call this a resort. It is a campground. The road to the office was full of huge potholes, I've heard that they are patching it each year, but it needs a major upgrade. It is hard to maneuver your RV around the potholes.
Even though I like taking my showers in RV resort showers, this one was so run down that I've decided to take it in my small RV. I didn't like the looks.
I had awesome Sprint coverage, I was able to tether and watch my Netflix too. I did not use the park WiFi. Didn't need to.
My Verizon Hotspot seem to work well too. - SmallRVlifestyle

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
