We stopped in here to check out the part and the facilities on a 30 minutes pass. What a wonderful spot. It is off season, quiet, with only a handful of campers, RVs and boats. Only one of the boat landings were open and the parking lots (many) were empty. We could only imagine what it it like in the... More

My wife and I took our two kids a few times over the past few years and each time was so much fun. During our stays the park rangers were knowledgeable and did everything they could to help us if we needed anything. I wouldn't recommend going in the winter because of freezing temperatures at night unless you have cold... More

We did a day visit to Lake Skinner State Park. It was nice with fishing, boating, hiking, and picnic areas. Its a little past the Temecula Winery area, There is also camping at the park which looked nice to stay at.

Fishing, boat rentals, camping, hiking, bicycle trails, kids playground and a family friendly splash zone, BBQ areas. This is a great location just a few miles away from the temecula city life. Overnight campers enjoy the splash zone for free or just pay for a day visit and pay a per person rate. I recommend camping for less than $35... More

We go camping every year, so this year we decided to try something new. The rangers called the cops on us the first night for being too loud rather than approaching us about it. We had about 5 camp sites reserved so we had a pretty large group. It's not much of a camp ground, looks more like a large... More

Skinner used to be a well kept secret, but not anymore. There are three camping areas. A and B tend to be a bit louder/rowdier than C. C is farther from the water park, lake, and boat launch, but is generally quieter. Lots of open grass areas for recreating, and kids playgrounds as well. The sites in C are pretty... More

For a nominal fee we visited the Splash Pad at the park. The Park has a variety of water features that all ages can cool off and have fun. The entrance to the park for the day was only $6.00 per car. We had kids that ranged from toddler to young adult and we all had fun. The Pad was... More

Where to begin? 1st, don't camp here! The spots are small, and when they say little to no shade on the spots, they aren't joking. There are 4 showers each (men's & women's) for hundreds of camp sites and they aren't nice, although they don't make you pay for them which is the least they can do. The spots are... More
