$54/$58/day Site 108 Wilderness Lakes in a Thousand Trails park located in what is left of the farming country in Temecula-Land. A very large park that takes reservations but does not assign sites...first come, first served and most of the sites are 30 amp only...not a big deal in the winter, but summer...could be an issue. We arrived very early on a Saturday and were lucky to score a "lakeside" back-in 50 amp site just vacated minutes before. During our week there we witnessed much maneuvering by other arrivals trying to land a favored spot. "Lakeside" is a euphemism as the water features are more like muddy ponds with lots of ducks and geese (and the associated quacks and bird poop). It was nice having our rear window overlooking the water. Sites are spacious but pretty much dirt and can be mucky in wet weather. The park was crowded with winter vacationers, but was very well organized with lots of planned activities for adults and kids. Normally they have an adults only pool, but it was closed for winter. There is a Country Store for must haves, a large grocery store is a mile away. Our site was satellite friendly but many of the other sites were in treed areas. WiFi is paid only, nothing free. $15/week but even paid, it was so slow as to be unusable. - Todd Hancock

This Park is top notch! Located on an animal preserve. Clean, quiet, serene, and canal based. Fantastic weather on a daily basis. Great security and staff!! Welcome home!? Arrive mid week. - Windman69

The canals, roads, and campsites are filled with duck, goose, and dog feces. I believe this to be a public health hazard. People drive and walk over the feces, the dried feces becomes airborne, and you breathe it in. It also gets all over your shoes and your pet's paws and you track the feces dust into your RV. Our dog has gotten diarrhea numerous times while staying here after walking the grounds. I have been ill as well. Many non 50 amp pop-up tent trailers and travel trailers use the very limited number of 50 amp spots making them unavailable for the RVs that actually need them. Thousand Trails does nothing about this. Their outdated policy is "first come first serve" with no regard to the power requirements of modern RVs. The sewer backed up several times while we were staying there and it affected several sites. We finally had to move to a different site. It was eventually fixed after we moved. - TheQs

We arrived on Thanksgiving to find the park completely packed w/ non camper guests hanging out w/ campers and taking up all of the parking for campers (parking signs state for campers only). Sites are first come first serve which is a terrible idea to begin w/. The site we were in was very unlevel, so the back of my trailer was 6 feet in the air in order to achieve level. Park was over the top loud w/ partiers yelling until well after 12am both Thurs and Friday night. Black widow spiders on electrical panel and picnic tables. Staff very angry and rude. Will never camp here again. - Gshock92

This campground is small but sweet. The lake access sites are great for smaller rigs. The level sites for big rigs are on the top of the campground. The views of the lake are terrific here. If you have a kayaks bring it. We had a good time with my sister’s kayak. The staff keep the campground clean. I saw fishing boats, water skiing boats & kayaks on the lake. The birding was good. We had a nice time with our friends camping at Canyon Lake. If we're invited back I would love to camp here again. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

Price reflects monthly cost. I loved this place. Only reason it isn't a 10 is 30 amp. They will rewire pedestal to accept 50 amp connector, but it is still only 30 amp. That's a problem with space heater in December, we kept tripping the breaker when the AquaHot kicked on.
Very, very quiet. No junky sites whatsoever. No wifi at the site, had to go to clubhouse, but ATT data and phone worked fine. Cable tv included. Because we stayed a month, they put us in a vacant owners site that had to be 60x60', all gravel. Lots of walking trails within the park for us and the dogs. Everyone was very friendly. About 6 miles to decent shopping, 15 miles to everything you could imagine in Temecula. - bobcovey

Paid $22.50, accepting only cash or check. No credit cards. Nice park but only has 4 transient sites. Our site required wheels in the air to get level. The problem was no power and nobody in office because of the weekend. The voltage was way over the 132 volt limit so the Progressive Industries power management system would shut off to protect our RV. We dry camped. - BbTrombone

This is a senior park, with some pull-throughs for short-term stays and back-in lots for longer-term renting. The lots are a good size and some have sheds. There is a pond with ducks to enjoy! The clubhouse has a pool table and many books, videos and puzzles to use. There are nightly activities and weekly/monthly special events. The office and maintenance staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay here again! - salliemac

Park is really set up for long term,but there is a short time area. Good price for So Cal, with a good location from the beaches, LA and San Diego. Paid $700 with elec for first month, then $550 plus $150 elec deposit for second month. Elec was 259.00 the second month. They keep your deposit saying they will mail it to you. The town around you is full of homeless, but they caused no problems in the park. Pool was heated. Laundry was small, so get there early. Cable and WiFi were great. I would not call Lake Elsinore a lake, just a very nasty body of water. - Donny and Donna

Nice enough place to stay, but not during the summer unless you are planning lake activities (HOT!) with no trees. Very friendly people. Nice pool and okay wifi. Good Cell service. Level backin full hook up 30/50 amp gravel sites. Can wak down to lake. Mostly permanents but nicely kept. One area for overnighters in corner with no fires or tables. Grass areas for pets. - teepee51

This is a trailer park, not an RV park. Almost all permanent residents. Old, not real nice looking, no wifi but descent cellular connection. Good location but I wouldn't use the place again. - Ken Sawczyn

I found this RV Park pleasant to visit for several weeks. It's somewhat dated, but in decent repair. It could use some tender loving care though. If it were updated I would have given it an 8 or 9. It appears the park is 90% filled with full time residents who are pleasant, quiet during the day and evenings. Sites are mostly average for RV parks, but my Ram 2500 parked on the site with my 32 foot fifth wheel would have been a little tight. There was additional parking very close by though and I chose to use it. RV Park borders the lake. The staff was very pleasant. - RetiredVagabond

I stayed here for 3 nights in early April. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Mostly month to month renters, but the park was clean and orderly. Pretty quiet too. Ample grass and shade. I might consider staying a month or two next winter. - Jeff J

Sites are extremely small and tight together. Some are very hard for larger rv rigs. Leash requirements are not enforced which is difficult for us who have pets on leash. People run or walk through others camps. Most likely will not come back here. - SullivanD

The service was excellent. The site we were originally assigned was very tight so we asked for a different site, they were very accommodating and gave us a very nice larger site.
This is a nice place to stay overnight but there is nothing to do unless you have a boat or water toys. Traffic from the highway was a bit loud. We rode our bicycles around but nothing really appealing to see. would not recommend this park for off season family fun camping unless you want to go shopping at Costco or the outlet mall. - chaparral

This is a rather strange place. I am not familiar with the area but ended up here when the places closest to San Diego that I was interested in were all booked. It is a very reasonably priced. It is virtually empty, except the for the full timers. On the holiday weekend the place filled completely.
The sites are not level. It seems that cable is available for an extra cost. The internet is just horrible. For many days it was not even available. They had to wait for the provider to show up after the weekend. The download rate is 1.61 mps. Upload is .46. Just awful. And I was just feet from the office.
After the holiday weekend it took several days for the garbage to be all collected as it was too much for the dumpsters. Instead of having extra pickups, they just keep filling the dumpster on regular pickups.
Overall I can't really recommend this place. But if you need a place to stay I would not dissuade you from coming. I felt safe and it is convenient to Costco, Walmart and other stores. - SonoraBob

Has paved streets, two 30 Amp services at each site. Using a combiner adapter, I was able to use my 50 Amp cord with no problem. Staff is very friendly and willing to go out of their way to help with special needs. The park has a huge rec hall, nice swimming pool, covered patio with lots of seating. Mail boxes are available for long term guests for a small fee. My only concern is the $5.00 deposit for the restroom key. One would think a little investment for a combination lock on the restrooms would go a long way on the good will factor. - rsbertsch
