After making a long trip, and it's made even longer by a circuitous road around the lake from the populated side to the park entrance, I was flatly ignored by the entry staff while they focused on each other and their computer. No eye contact. No "we'll be right with you." No acknowledgement that I'd been waiting ten minutes for...

Ok I was there for the 4th of July so I should cut them a little slack but hearing the employee in the General Store complain about it being her turn to clean the restrooms was a little upseting. At $35 a night I would like a clean stocked restroom when I stumble 7 mins in the dark to the...

Park is very clean. People at the front gate were very friendly. We had a great spot with lots of shade. Just be careful if you are camping at the end of site "B", there is a family of skunks that reside inside their water drainage. The "splash zone" is fun but needs some TLC, floor is broken in places...

We stayed here for 3 nights a few days ago and it was just about a perfect visit weather and scenery wise. This is a very large facility with everything from fishing, to hiking, biking, and camping. We camped in the C loop in a full hookup camp site. There is also a loop A and B. Our utilities were...

We spent 6 nights at the campgrounds. Quiet hours 10 pm to 6 am are not enforced at any hour. Neighbors party evolved into a drunken brawl one night. All other nights music until at least 11 pm and back on the next morning. No camp host or rangers present. First and last visit.

I have done most of my camping in forest settings so the initial shock of camping without many trees took a few minutes to wear off. Other than that we had some great views, access to the lake (in the distance) which we walked down to, a playground and lots of open space for kids, and overall a very good...

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...

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...

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.
