We were on our way west and stopped for fuel at the Morongo Travel Center. We then decided to boondock in their parking lot. The lot is asphalt and relatively level and located at the far back of the casino/hotel. Park perpendicular to the marked parking spaces for an easier level. The experience was much nicer than our previous stays at the casinos in the Indio area, and about 15 degrees cooler for this time of the year. We would have no problem staying here again. The price reflected is actually zero, but of course you don't factor in what's spent at the casino. They also have casino shuttles that occasionally come through the parking lot, but it's not a long walk from the parking lot to the casino and restaurants. - James T

This is a big parking lot behind the casino. I followed the signs to "RV Parking" and that isn't the overnight parking. The shuttle van drove up as we pulled in and cheerfully guided us to the correct lot. He told us we could stay as long as five nights. There is a dumpster available. There are train tracks in the area, but far enough away that the trains were barely noticeable. When you sign up for a player's card in the casino, each of you gets a card good for $10 in the casino restaurants. This is a very convenient stopover along I-10 just west of Palm Springs. - Denali

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

Nice park conveniently located only ~2 miles from major highways. There are 2 sections: paved/grassy FHU sites that are perfect for big rigs and a gravel area that is less costly and not nearly as nice. Not sure if those have FHU. 2 ponds on site with mud hens, ducks, and at least 1 goose. Lots of people fishing. 2 playgrounds (1 for 2-5 yr olds; another for older children). A small water park that was closed and a putt-putt golf course that looked nice. Good walking areas though limited due to size of the park. Very clean and, for the most part, friendly. No mail service. Reasonable camp store. Grass is cut on Tuesdays. Nice grassy space between every site. You need to be careful walking the dog after sunset. Many skunks and evidence of feral hogs. Also, lots of groundhogs but those don't present a concern. While we did not see any homeless people inside the park, they are definitely all over the wash area. We were warned several times to keep everything locked and stored at night. Again, we didn't have any issues. We would stay again. - FT Travelers3

Large park with two separate camping loops. Lakeside loop is older (and slightly cheaper), with sites very close together on a dirt/gravel surface with tight, bumpy gravel interior roads. This loop is a mix of back-in and pull through (all "buddy" type) RV sites and tent camping sites. Cottonwood loop is for RVs only and spacious with FHU concrete sites and wide, paved interior roads that are easy to navigate (and is the best loop for big rigs). Sites here are a mix of back-in, pull through and pull ins. We stayed in site 216, a back-in which was VERY long and level. Park entrance is gated with code provided for after-hours access. Different code given for restrooms and laundry area. Newer bathhouse had two private handicapped bathrooms with toilet and shower (one out of order), a separate toilet area for each gender, and a separate shower area for each gender. All were cleaned daily. Laundry area had 5 washers and dryers ($1.00 per wash/dry) but required non-refundable tokens to use due to prior vandalism (and the park advises to keep everything locked up due to theft in the area). Park has a small splash pad (open Easter through Labor Day), 2 playgrounds, mini golf ($5 per person and the nicest we've ever seen), plus two stocked fishing lakes. Verizon service was good. No cable provided and only a handful of over the air channels. Park has a well-stocked store with gifts, snacks, ice, RV supplies and beer. They allow you to wash your RV at your site. Park does not allow mail/packages to be delivered. There are LOTS of ants here, so come prepared with spray and keep an eye on your jacks. Some noise from the nearby local airport and a train, but not bad. Free wifi offered but we didn't use. No restrictions on age of RVs here. No propane sold on site. Staff were friendly and made regular patrols through the campground. We loved this park and wouldn't hesitate to stay again! - RVIN 24-7

This is a review for those looking to go here. First and foremost, let me state that I like this park and would return each and every time I go to this area. 1) Upon check in I was given a notice warning to secure everything when leaving the trailer/park for a period of time or during the overnight hours -to prevent theft. 2) There are four major animals that inhabit the area of the park, Wild pigs (scare easily, but tear up the grounds pretty good), Weasels, skunks and coyote's. We hear the coyotes a few mornings, and swathe results of visits from the pigs on two occasions during the week. 2) WIFI - the park does have free WIFI, BUT it is sketchy at best for an internet access. comes and goes constantly. 3) If you need to use the park shower facilities or the laundry, you MUST obtain non-refundable tokens from either the store or the entry kiosk during business hours.. That being said, the washers and dryers are actually pretty good. 4 tokens each ($1.00 each) - 4) ANTS !!!!!!!!!!!!! Be ready with your preferred method of preventing the little pests from entering your rig. I had stepped in/on an ant hill while connecting utilities and they really swarmed; I sprayed the crap out of them and the area and also put down some killer bait.. Had I known in advance I would have been better prepared and not had to go out and buy ant spray and bait. Okay, about the site itself, in the newer campground the sites are all concrete, close to level with a decent separation between sites. We had a pull thru (208) that was barely long enough for the trailer and truck, so I had to get creative with parking the truck at the site to keep it off the grass and out of the roadway. - Sergent Major

Sites are close together, I measured 25 ft., I had plenty of room front to back on hard packed dirt, but neat and clean. No phone service and wifi is OK but not for Viber. The biggest negative for me was crazy speed bump in a V that made the back of the motorhome do extreme contortions when the doolies hit them at almost no speed. - CGNRG

Nicely maintained park. Note: there are only a handful of 50 amp sites. Roads are paved with sites being hard packed dirt. Some large trees throughout park but we were able to use our satellite dish. Our space was long enough to hold 40 foot trailer and truck easily. Decent spacing between sites. Our site did require some leveling. Quiet area yet you are close to Temecula and the wineries. There is no cell service at the park so they provide a free landline phone for you in the lounge. Great value and place to stay if you want to do some wine tasting or see Old Town Temecula. Wi-Fi is free but very slow. - mcharland

Very remote park with trails and lots to do in the surrounding area. Did a long term stay and was very happy with the management and park hosts. Weekends can get crowded during peak times and wifi is poor due to it's location - lucky if you get cell service or text. Go there to relax and enjoy nature, site-see. - PixieStardust

If you enjoy residing in an RV Park that resembles Sanford and Son Junk Yard...Then Welcome Home! This Park is infested with flies, no cable/no wifi, overpriced and a waste of time! - Windman69

To be honest, we were afraid of arriving after reading all the bad reviews. Which goes to show you....gated RV park AND the gates work. I asked the manager if he was are of all the bad reviews, and he said, yes, however, he has addressed many of the issues and will try to improve even more. The park was very clean when we stayed there - a week. Laundry, and bathroom facilities were very clean. Yes, the surrounding neighborhood is sketchy, but they were not getting into the park. Management and custodial personnel were very friendly and nice, and helpful. I'm not giving a 10 because of the surrounding neighborhood. However, we did feel safe inside the park. No WiFi, no cable tv. The only channel we could bring in with our antenna was PBS. :-(
For the price, I think WiFi and cable tv should be included. If you wanted WiFi, you had to go near the office. Our pickup barely fit on the lot...neighbors were awfully close - we could hear their conversations, as I'm sure they could hear ours. HOWEVER....we never had problems with any of the neighbors - they were all very nice and it seems like they look out for each other. - CampinAZFamily

Ghetto park. Drugs, thieves. They should close this park down. Has a bad reputation in the visitors center. Wouldnt recommend it to anyone. Owners don't care about the park just want money. REALLY!!! Can't keep managers long. Some are rude. Dirty park. Old trailers alot of strange people in and out at night and in the daytime. Need to close this PARK!!! - G Holloway

This is my very first review and this park was so terrible, I felt obligated to create an account to leave a review. When we pulled in, they make you pull over in order to get an inspection (of your power cord and sewer hose). While we were waiting, a big dog fight broke out between the dogs of 2 permanent residents. There was a lot of screaming and threatening from the 2 men, which started us off uneasy. As we were being escorted to our space, we started to notice the "tent city" that we were pulling into. The rigs are all completely run down, covered in tarps, not well taken care of. Usually, that's not an issue for us, as we've stayed in some sketchy places before, but something about this park was "off." The people who live there full-time seemed a little sketchy. Anyway, we got pulled into our spot after being directed by the host (he insisted he HAD to help us, even though we do this every week and know our rig better than he does.) Once he walked away, we kind of looked at each other and immediately started planning our escape route. Called the park we were staying at next and they were able to accommodate us early. We didn't even care that we lost our $35 non refundable deposit. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT stay here! RUN. - HaydenHall

Checked in on New Years Day. Check in process was OK but didn't understand the "inspection" process when there are many, many dilapidated campers on site. We were escorted to a site to find grossly un-level. We were so close to the neighbor, we could pass a cup of sugar without leaving our camper. After I got settled, I saw many, many open more acceptable sites. Why was I placed in such a ratty site when other better sites were available? Was not provided with a campground map, so I was flying in the dark. Took a shower to find only two stalls and one broken. No heater and the outside temps were in the 50's and couldn't get the shower water to mix correctly, either hot or scalding hot. I guess for $17.50 (PA rate) it would do, but will not stay here again. Utilities were good, didn't use WiFi of cable. My site did provide an excellent view of the southern sky for satellite aiming. The site was sand and the internal roads were pothole filled asphalt. he atmosphere was very quiet with owls singing at night. No traffic noise and for older couples, no children in our area. The on-site store was very well stocked. - SD75mac

The female receptionist gave excellent reservation service. Good check-in experience. Friendly Guard Shack guy, gave us good instructions on where to park at the inspection pad. Inspection consisted of another friendly man driving up in a golf cart, looked from his golf cart to see we were not leaking any fluids, and guided us to our site. He pointed out the available water, electric, sewer and TV cable connections. Place is very well kept up, clean swimming pools. I was here about 6 years ago, place was kinda messy from some (not all) of the permanent residents. But, now is very well kept up. Store has typical camping goods for visitors. We purchased cooking oil, spices, and ice cream. Only negatives I need to report, is the TV cable connection at my site were found in the dirt and I was not able to find any cable channels after doing my normal menu search. There are many over-the-air TV stations, as I pointed in the correct direction with my amplified TV antannae. The park has several WiFi locations transmitting from the bath-shower rooms located around the park, but the WiFi kept dropping in and out. It was frustrating establishing a good WiFi connection. Overall, I will come back again, to escape the nearby big metropolitan area of Los Angeles for a nice get-a-way - Joe O

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

We came here from Lake Skinner Rec Park. We thought this was a nice park, for the one night that we stayed. It is mostly permanent residents, here but there is availability for overnight guests. We had 'lake' parking and it was nice, peaceful and quiet. Will return again. - awphull1

This is not a campground - this is a trailer park. 80% of the sites are used for full time guests which is fine but they really should tell people that. Our site was sandwiched between two full time families who fought all night (I thought we'd end up on Cops) and walked around half naked. We had no fire ring, no picnic table and the bathrooms were locked. Our neighbors dog used their deck as a bathroom which was eye level with our windows. We had to keep them closed and covered the entire time. The lake is green sludge that reeks. Maybe this is better in the Summer but our experience was horrid, we went home early and will never go back. - Charlalee

This is an interesting place to say the least. They have their own pond/lake thing. There are a lot of residents, a few vacation home people and then us overnighters. I have to admit that is the friendliest place around! Lots of nice folks, not too noisy. The roads around here are dirt, so don't expect the best accommodations if you are used to a more luxurious style. They can handle RV's of any size, and tents too, but like many parks, the spaces for the larger rigs are limited. There is no cable, no TV, no cell phone coverage and you are lucky if you can get radio inside your rig. There is Wi-Fi, but only if you take your laptop to the bar/office area. Bring a book! The lake is interesting. It is basically a few streams built up behind a dam. But I have to say that I find it “nice”. There is catch and release fishing, paddle boats, a swim area and an area to launch water balloons into the lake at your friends and strangers. There is also: a bar! OK, so it is not a FULL bar. In fact, all they sell is beer. Still, on a hot day in August, looking over the lake and having a cold one. - BBlast

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
