This was an adventure! It was difficult to navigate the road up the mountain to get into with a 28'. I would definitely suggest daytime driving. The problem is the whizzers around the curve. We drove through Idyllwild on the way back and this was a lot easier to maneuver. The park itself is a challenge to find easy spots to get into, but it was worth the challenge. It is an interesting park being tucked up in the mountains and the trip to Idyllwild is definitely a must. The people are so friendly and dog friendly shops. We did lose the top of our fridge vent so be remember where you go go into you must come back out of. No internet except for the laundry areas. Take plenty of quarters. - ralinda

I was one night at this park. It happened to be fogged in so I did walk the area, I could only see about 200 feet.
My site was nice, and spacious in the woods. I was next to a long term renter.
This entire park is nestled in the woods, among trees and boulders. Driving through here in a big RV or with a big trailer is not for the faint of heart. My 24 foot van was no problem.
The road in is a pretty steep hill.
The Rangers that checked me in were very friendly and offered plenty of good advice about navigating the many roads in the park. - StormRunner

Nice wooded park. We were up top near the pool in a nice 50 amp site. Park was fairly empty because it was starting to get cooler. Many things to do in the area and casino's aren't too far away. We enjoyed our week long stay. - acampingfan

Wifi is spotty and un-useable and can’t purchase faster even though they say you can. No splash screen to order.
Sites are very hard to get into with 35’ or more as the roads are narrow and the lots are not angled at all so no truck swinging room. No pull thru’s. The sites as well are not level.
The sewer inlet should be closer to the road as the sites slope to the road and the current inlet is too far uphill for some units if your sewer connection is in the middle of your rig.
The sites are different sizes width wise. They say they aren’t but they are. Very small area to park your tow vehicle and have a sitting area.
Free Cable TV which is nice but the channel listing needs to be updated. It is not accurate. Not even close.
Bathroom is very nice but the handicap shower could use hooks for hanging stuff up and a better curtain to keep the water in the shower.
They need a Gate here as people are getting things stolen from their sites. Lots of thefts. The staff seem friendly and helpful and the pools and hot tub were nice. The laundry room was down due to a leak but they didn’t seem to care about getting it fixed in a hurry.
Overall very crowded and tight but worth staying a few nights but not sure if I would pay for a site here. This is our first time in Palm Springs and it’s beautiful. - Shawn Muir

The campsites in this park are pretty small; it's an RV resort in an urban setting. With that in mind, Palm Springs Oasis was a terrific stay for us. We loved being close to town, and everyone in the park was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and required a key to access; the bath house was clean. The laundry room and grounds were too. It's a small RV resort with tight spaces; the location can't be beaten though. - ppalmer21

This RV park has tight spaces, the only outside space you have is behind your tow vehicle or towed which is parked close to the left of your RV. But worse than that--I saw no RV site that was level. Most Class A's had their front wheels 3-6 inches off the ground. And fifth wheels have it even worse if their sewer connection is not at the rear--bring lots of leveling blocks for the hose! I had to buy a 10 pack at WM and I could have used more. Other than that--it is ok. Getting Satellite coverage was good in most spots used a few more to make it level and keep my front wheels supported. I doubt an over 40' rig with 3 slides and a towed would fit. - TedM

I have camped here many times 20+/- years ago. We came back in May in my RV. I forgot that you CANNOT swim in this lake, well unless you swim in their float areas (blow up slides) for an additional LARGE fee. Why??? We booked near where the map showed the floating toys were so the grandkids could go swimming, and they moved it to another location and couldnt enjoy it. The campground has a section of people who live in their RV's and it is very trashy looking. Spaces with old worn out fake grass around them and lots of clutter. Looks like a homeless camp. This is the main section for RV hookups. There other areas are dry or some service. I had google mapped it when I booked, and I could tell it was trashy looking, so we opted for dry camping. However, the spaces are not really big enough for RVs in most spaces. I literally had someone with their trailer not 5 feet from my RV. Horrible way to camp. Had I known that, I would have stayed in the city, at least there the neighbors are 20 feet away. There were far too few trees for a campground this old. In the summer you need shade. They have done nothing to provide shade for most of the camp sites. Last, I dont know if this is a California thing (I am a resident) or a Lake Hemet thing. The pot smell (skunk smell) was way too frequent. The neighbor (Mr. 5 ft) was smoking, as was someone a few camp sites away. They would walk around smoking, and once stood there on the other side of our camp with the wind coming directly at us. Even the young kids were commenting on what stinks! Lastly, for RV's, many of the sites are not very accommodating for the larger RV's, 5th Wheels and trailers. We saw many people struggle to get into their spaces. Ours was a back in, and I could barely get in. They place large boulders near drive lane with tight spaces. I dont think we will be back. Not the best way to get away from it all. - Jewels RV

Arrive with my family to our RV site to find out, it was double booked. The people staying at that campsite, immediately went down to office. A staff member came back to campsite and explained and apologized. He complimented with another hook up spot of my choice, wasn't much to choose from at that time. I was upset at first, but the staff really stepped up and helped me with my stay. They made me a Happy Camper. We even stayed an extra night. I've been coming here since the 60s. I've seen this place go through its changes good or bad. I still love this place, it has a natural beauty to it and it's close to home. Will....you keep doing what your doing, and good luck with your Adventure with Lake Helmet, I'll BE BACK. - Mark Echavarria

Large family-friendly park. A mixed-use park for sure. There were many permanent mobile homes, as well as long-stay trailers. There was a RV camp and a tent camp on opposite sides of the lake inlet. Camp 2 is where we stayed. We were originally given a spot in between two permanent homes, but we asked for a different spot in a more open area. We were reluctantly given the spot by a very unhelpful front-gate. The front-gate people were unfamiliar with the occupancy of their park and gave incorrect directions to our spot. The lake is fun, you can rent boats and fishing gear. The park is very peaceful at night. The roads are tight for a rig over 30ft. Will stay here again now that we know what lots to avoid. - ArnerJoey

Very nice county park in the mountains surrounded by large pines. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park has no hookups but numerous water stations throughout the park. Restroom were not clean and 2 of the toilets in the women's restroom were clogged. Sites on upper loop are very uneven making it difficult to level a trailer (luckily, the recent storms created a ditch in the one side of our site which allowed us to place one wheel in to level). - WoodShed22

Just returned from a long Memorial Day weekend at Hurkey Creek, our first visit. This is a Riverside County Park: all dry camping. It is at 4,000 feet altitude in the big pine trees surrounded by mountains. Within a 15 minute drive of Idyllwild, 30 minutes to Palm Springs. Overall, it was a beautiful weekend. The positives: Beautiful scenery, relatively cool weather, great hiking and mountain bike trails, friendly staff (and they did a good job of enforcing the quiet time, even on the crazy holiday weekend). The park was clean, you can book reservations on a very good web site with up-to-date pictures of each site. The negatives: No cell coverage (no one in our group had cell coverage, regardless of carrier: you have to drive up the mountain toward Idyllwild to get a connection). The showers/restrooms were older, dark and dingy. 50 cents for the shower. The roads are all paved, but the sites are dirt (DG). We lucked into one that was fairly level, but a LOT of the sites are uneven and sloping. The web site has pictures of each site: pay attention! I mentioned earlier that there are no hookups, no dump station either. All in all, it was a good weekend, but this is iffy, for us, for a return trip. It is very difficult for me to be completely out of contact (job). Also, unless you're REALLY paying attention when you book reservations, it would be pretty easy to end up in a terrible site. - FireFlyer

This was the first time we camped here: we loved it. We felt like we were a million miles away but it's only 1 hour from Temecula. Mountain feel, lots of pine trees, camp clean and quiet. Would highly recommend this campground. - cisbell

We reserved our site online. It was difficult getting the trailer in due to the angle of the road to the spacious site. After that feat was accomplished we enjoyed our stay there. I would definitely come back to camp here but choose a site that works better for our trailer. The location can't be beat. Loved the break from the heat being in the mountains. - arteacher

We were only able to be here one night while traversing the country from Orlando to LA. Very pretty place to be. We intend to come back for a week. The town of Idyllwild is just outside the park and looks like great place to check out. It took us an hour to get up the mountain and an hour to get down. Fairly steep with a winding road. The road provides turn outs every couple of miles so you can allow the faster vehicles, not towing a trailer, to pass. - Pietrzyk

Awesome park. Walk to downtown Idyllwild. Stayed in Sp-26, now a full-HU site w/sewer. The other electric sites are being upgraded and most are now 30amp. Lots of shade and growth, well spaced, semi-private. Very pleased, will stay here again !! - Nevada Nick

This was my Yosemite backup. When you can't get a campsite at Yosemite, you get one at Idyllwild. This campground was really good. I was able to get a really large campsite (Site 93) with plenty of room for our outdoor stuff. The map shows it as a back-in, but I got there and was able to pull through. There are decent hiking trails with trailheads extremely nearby, and the trails allow dogs. We were able to ride our bikes to the local town; we happened to be there for the Easter Egg hunt. The campsites are fairly un-level and they're marked a little haphazardly. There were community water spigots all over the place, but they were frozen for one of the mornings we were there--thawed later that afternoon. Campsites include a fire-ring/grill and a picnic table. Most of the campsites are for tents but there is a section at one end dedicated to RVs. I didn't see any Class A's. The interior roads are a little tight for big rigs. No dump station. Overall it was a quiet weekend getaway that we all really enjoyed and would happily do again. - Arash

My rate was $20 plus a $7 reservation fee. This was a nice cool place to camp out of the heat of the valley below. I wish I could spend more time up here. Do not expect level sites like you would find in an RV park. Many of these sites are designed for tents, but you can get an RV in there. There are two buildings with showers, one at the very front of the campground (near the day use parking lot), and one near the middle of the campground. My campsite was at the very back of the campground, and at my site Verizon service was poor, so your mileage may vary. I would stay here again. - Rick Scholz

Rate reflects Passport America. Most of campground was closed when I was there. I was in a paved level site near the entrance of the campground. I walked campground and some sites towards the end turnaround loop also looked suitable for smaller RVs (I have 25' C). Good Verizon signal. Walking distance to town and restaurants. Mixed forest with pine trees in campground, very pretty. Friendly helpful campground host. - tpild

We stayed here for 2 months renting a space though Fairway Associates. All spaces are privately owned and some like ours use Fairway Associates as their property manager. Snow birds are most of those who inhabit this park and they are a very friendly and lively bunch. The park is an oasis in the mountainous desert region east of Temecula. Beautiful landscaping with a small golf course winding thought the park. All spaces are concrete and with grass in between the spaces and in all common areas. Wifi at our space was not usable, but we received a decent signal with AT&T using our hotspot. They were building a new dog park which was much needed. This was a real bargain for Southern California and the only negative we can report is the drive up Hwy 79 east from Temecula. It is 2 lanes for the entire 12 miles from Temecula and is pretty narrow in spots with blind hills and turns. There is a lot of traffic on this road and for some reason many don't know what a no passing zone means. A real adventure driving it with a 40 motorhome towing a car. - Jamesrock

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

We have been here at this RV Park the past two weekends for a total of five nights. We both agree, absolutely, this is second best RV Park we have had the pleasure to visit. This Escapee SKP membership park is outstanding with terrific attractive landscaped level sites. The entire park is well landscaped due to the benefit of two well flowing artesian wells. Nearly all sites have a view of mountains. The only downfall is the low number of selected unoccupied sites available for guest. As the fall season approaches the number of available sites will dwindled. Facilities here are top rate, and there is free internet in the clubhouse. The price is high in comparison to other Escapee Parks. Yet Jojoba is in California. Overall an excellent place to visit and stay overnight. We will definitely be back. - James Barr

I really don't know what I could add about this park. It is amazing and some day we may be back to stay. It is so organized...down to signing up for the time you need your washer/dryer. The sense of community is the strongest I've ever been around. We boondocks outside the gate the first night and then stayed a week on a private spot. Thank you for an enjoyable experience. You definitely raised the bar high. - ralinda

We have stayed here 3 times now and have always enjoyed our stay. Large sites, not cookie cutter sites like most parks, plenty of activities, a ways outside of town which make it very quiet. It's a membership park and you can't make reservations which can make it a bit tough and iffy to get in. The biggest thing for us now is that the last time we stayed the price was $25 but now if you are a 50amp rig the cost is $40 per night with NO DISCOUNT for weekly or a month which make it crazy high for what you get. - hdrider
