We stayed at the being of March 2015. I must say, this is more like a camping / RV Resort than a parking lot surronuded by concrete and sod grass. If you like to pull into a concrete pad, have a shrub wall dividing you and your neighbors, and a gazebo, this might not be the place for you. If... More

Scott, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Apologize for the lack of power at your site. But what really concerns me is that staff didn't act to find you a solution to the issue on your way in or offer you an option to communicate the problem to us on your way out. My apologies. Not a...

We always camp with a large group during the month of October for their Halloween festival. They do a GREAT job with the haunted hayrides and haunted houses. The kids and adults have a BLAST!! It's a little on the expensive side but worth it! The dance party at night at the little town center is always fun! We are... More

Dan-O ... sorry to read about the trouble you had with the previous operator at Vail. Although I cannot do anything about past customer service issues ... wanted to tell you that over $100,000 has been spent in tree trimming and arborist since the ownership/management change in late August. There was a huge amount of branches that presented a danger... More

We went and had a nice experience. Everybody kept telling us we needed to bring a golf cart but with bicycles and a pickup it wasn't necessary. Overall it looked like it was better back in the day but still was nice enough for us to come back. Because the cost is pretty high at $70 a night we will... More

To begin with, the address will not come up on your GPS and the coordinates are incorrect. It is listed on highway 79 South, but instead the true address is on Temecula Pkwy. So we began our trip a bit lost. The park is huge, with plenty of good size RV spots. The scenery is nice, staff OK. They advertise... More

We were introduced to this campground by my family. It's rustic, quiet and pretty well maintained. If you own a rzr or arctic cat type UTV, you can bring it here! The sites have full hook ups and a fire ring. During the summer they have a waterslide and a couple pools to choose from. There are also two coin-op... More
