Not really a full review after only 24 hours here, in the winter, but the campground is quiet and looks clean and well-maintained and I'd definitely return.
There are some things I wanted to mention because I did not see them elsewhere:
(1) Verizon service is good throughout the whole park.
(2) This park is not really in Banning itself, but 12 miles up the winding mountain road toward Idyllwild. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is not slightly scary to get to.
(3) Dig out your jack pads before you come, because the sites are asphalt (wish I'd planned ahead!)
(4) The sites are laid out in an unusual pattern, with groups of both back-in and pull-thru sites in short "nodes", with lots of grassy spaces between nodes. It strikes me that this is one of the best arrangements I've ever seen for family groups with multiple RVs, or small groups traveling together.
(5) The sewer connections are exactly 3" in diameter and threaded on the outside. I had nothing - including my 4-in-1 slip adapter - which would fit these. I guess you need a rubber seal connector and that's the only thing that works? Just come prepared.
As with Thousand Trails parks, you pick your spot. But when I called the office to give them my site number, they refused to take it over the phone. She said I had to give them that information in person?!
I have no toad and it's a long walk back, so I guess they'll have to live without it. That's been my only negative experience here. - Karen On The Road

Very clean park with over 800 camping spots, two pools one for children and one for adults, bar, resturant and snack bars at each pool. I dont recommend camping here in August due to the heat. We will be back. - snarlin

This is a membership park. It's in a great location, a huge campground, plenty of area for walking, lots of trees and grass, plenty of birds if you like to put out feeders, nice sized spaces with good wifi (for a fee). One of our favorite spots when in California. It's steep and winding getting to and from the park, but worth the trouble to get there. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

We stayed overnight during December. A number of locals were fishing in the lake in the afternoon. There was only one other party in the campground proper with us. We had a lake view with electric hookup but no water hookup. Other sites have both hookups but no view. We liked the place for a short stay, nothing to rave about, but quiet, clean, fenced off. I believe the electric box had a 50A receptacle (I only need 30A), but the fuses may have been 30A. If you need 50A just call to get the low-down. Overall, I would recommend the place for a stop-over. - TvE

We could only give a 3 rating because there was NOT a dump station! The campground is nice and if you like birds: plenty! We were here for one night only. We don't fish, but apparently the fishing is good! - billandme

This is a city of Hesperia municipal park, & the condition is about what one would expect for that. It's high desert, flat, open & a long way from luxurious. It's obviously under-funded & needs maintenance, but it's kept clean, well-run & quiet time was well enforced despite an annual "pow wow" being held there the weekend we were there. It's off a rural road, so there was very little road noise to disturb our sleep. It's certainly not a "destination" but, based on the reviews of the other places in the area, including a cousin I have who lives there, it seems the place of choice for an overnight or two if the opportunity presents. We would stay there again when in the area. The lake yielded 1 huge trout & several large catfish that we saw during our 3 days there. - gs2rt

This a beautiful park and very popular with snowbird RVers that stay for several months during the winter months. We have spent many winters there. The staff have been excellent, always trying to make our stay pleasant . The management is poor! They are not very hospitable and they are in the hospitality business. The general manager rarely speaks, even if you say "good morning". This park is not very pet friendly . They have raised the dog fee from $30.00 / season to $30.00/ month / dog. That is gouging the customers that have been loyal clients for many years! The Golden Village Palms has many rules and regulations that are not evenly applied, which is very frustrating . - Pinsent

This is a popular winter destination for snow birds who enjoy club activities. It is an older park with established trees and vegetation but has a crowded feel to it. Our site was too narrow for our 40 foot class A: we had to park our rig half on the cement patio to allow room for our deep driver side slideout to clear the dividing shrubbery. The power source was from a shared post in the rear passenger side corner of the site. The cable tv outlet was there as well but not active. We didn't require patio space as this was a short "shake down" visit which met our needs. This site would not have been suitable for a long stay. The sites on the street we were parked on looked similarly small. We have camped here before and would return for a special occasion. The park is close to shopping and restaurants. - Roger H.

This is a destination park and would be a good place to spend a month or more. It looks like they have lots of activities available. We were only there for one night but would like to go back and spend some time. There are many park models in the park. - Windshift

Rate is Passport America. Can accommodate RV's up to 30'. This is hard seal camping in a secure, gated carpark at the back of a large mobile home complex. The complex is clean and tidy and the people friendly. Full lookups but the restrooms nearby were locked. We were asked if we were self sufficient for restrooms and so I don't know if they are ever used. A pristine pool and jacuzzi are open to RV'ers and you are able to use the showers and restrooms here. Laundry facilities available. You need to check in the office first, show vehicle registration papers and ID, and pay a $50 refundable deposit for a gate opener to the RV section. It isn't a destination stop but more than adequate for a place to stop while passing through to somewhere else. We would stay here again. - Monaire Corporati

The pool and spa where unavailable due to construction. No rules were enforced and if you asked about the rules, you where asked to leave. There's a gate but nobody has a code to open it and if it gets closed you have to figure out how to get in. There's new management that only cares about collecting money. It is getting filled with park models and permanent trailers that are falling apart. Most permanent tenants take up 2 to 3 spaces. This park has gone so down hill since my last stay. - Cah123

Have been visiting this park for the last four seasons. I'm a "snow bird," so Casa Del Sol is my winter home. First two seasons, in a fifth-wheel, then with the help of the park manager, ordered a park model and now have all the features and room I could want! Excellent security (with new additions of lighting and security gates), clean sites, a sense of community encouraged by special events and gatherings for the entire park. And all the amenities you expect at a resort park: pickle-ball, shuffleboard, a card room, craft room (with the most wonderful group of quilters you could find!), exercise room, a pool room, swimming pool and spa, laundry, restrooms and showers, and a ballroom with full-service kitchen for events. Management truly cares for all of the residents, and go out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued. Availability of services and shopping in Hemet is A+, conveniently close by. I'll be back again in the fall to my winter home...can't wait! - Marketlady

Me and my wife had an extended stay at this wonderful park, and in doing so got to experience almost everything the park has to offer. Whether you like to sit by a pool, play tennis, or enjoy one of their many community run events that are held in their clubhouse, you will surely find something to do. One thing this place has that you can't find anywhere else around here is a nice community and friendly staff. I would mention names if not for the rule, but let's just say that anyone that helps, especially management, you will be well taken care of. - Young couple

This was an accidental find. Our truck broke and we had to get a tow to the closest RV park. Stayed here 4 nights. Staff was very accommodating with our day-to-day extending with the approx done day of our truck. No issues. Nice camp.. friendly full timers, loved their laundry facility... it was on your honor to pay them but it was nice being able to do a small load or run the dryer for a few more mins. You just paid the front desk. Only bad thing is we had "no service" and I mean zero, zip, zilch... we would have to drive all the way down the hill to get bars. AT&T. One of the full timers had Verizon and she could get service. - Ranger18

This is an OK spot to stay if you need to be around the Northeast corner of the LA area. An interesting drive from I-5, one might think to be lost, but it shows up on the Garmin. It is not fancy, old, lots of permanent sites. It is a little tight to get in and out of, but cheap. - mebehr

Has about 25 sites with cable and full hookups. The rest are water and electric. Has a dump station. There are lots of shade trees. Its a very pretty setting. Manager is hard to find. - Julianne

Here's the pros, electric works 50amp and 30 amp. Lots of sewer smells from vents and long term residents with old rigs scattered around the park! We stayed here 2 winters and probably won't be back! The pool decking is dilapidated and covering falling off! Men's bathroom has Black Mold all through the cabinets. When you take a shower, water fills up and you have to stand in dirty as drains are very slow. Asphalt in entire park is crumbling and you will constantly track it into your rig. Several RVers have had their bicycles stolen over a 4 month period, lots of homeless people outside on streets of Hemet. The spa pool is old and not very clean, overall not a great RV experience. Probably will never return as no improvements at all over a years time as we were told there would be. - seaguy

This park was supposed to get a major upgrade from the owner of the day but due to a legal issue the ownership changed. Resort was the name given by previous owner and referred to what the park was going to be redeveloped into. This didn't happen and the park is inhabited mainly by low income people. There are also thefts occurring and stories of drug dealing. The spaces are tight and the sites and roadways are run down. The manager is pleasant and helpful, but doesn't have a clue about what snowbirds and winter escapees are looking for in a resort. - Britcanuck

NOT a resort! Almost nothing for activities, save for a puny bingo game on Wed. nights and an ice cream social (costs a buck, two for a root beer float) on Saturday. I realize it is summer, but what 'resort' doesn't have activities? The clubhouse has no air conditioning, RV spaces are tiny and close together, very few trees so no shade, mostly permanent residents, many old dilapidated units, several old mobiles located in park. Manager is pleasant enough, but assistant is an admitted pothead who is rude and complains constantly about how she doesn't have enough time to do all the work they demand from her. Although the facilities are clean, it is more a place that caters to low-income permanent residents who have nowhere else to go. They should be ashamed to call this place a resort. - Traveler112349

We camped here for 2 nights free, and had to listen to a sales presentation. There are 3 (small) lakes around the park. One is stocked with catfish during the warm months, one is stocked with trout for winter/spring. Our site was #25, back-in next to the catfish lake. Most sites are full hook-up with 30 amp service. Only 27 sites are 50 amp. All campsites are first come, first serve, and the 50 amp sites go fast, and are placed sporadically throughout. At the time the catfish lake was closed off, as we were told it was drained and being refilled. Many people were catching trout, good size ones at that. One of the small lakes is just for looks, and no fishing is allowed in it. There are many activities scheduled monthly, a small general store, recreation room, bar, restaurant, laundry and restrooms. Our stay was mid-week, Tues, Wed night. The campsites were clean enough but some looked quite uneven. This is a membership only park, and they check applicants for Megan's-law violations for the safety of the children. Everyone was very friendly. No wood campfires but charcoal BBQ's are allowed (small ones provided at the campsites) and covered campfires with Duralogs (wax coated logs) are permitted. Wood fires are controlled located next to beach areas of the lakes for large parties or group fires. - slbenter

We have access to this park through ROD - Resorts of Distinction. The park is in the San Bernardino mountains and normally has 3 lakes which you can camp around. Most sites are back in and have full hookups. Lots of good walking, on site general store and restaurant. We try to stay here at least twice a year. Lots of fishermen catching trout. - AndiamoBrian

We decided to become members of Resorts of Distinction and this was the first park we visited after joining. Once a member, there are no charges associated with camping--they list a $3 charge for cable TV hookups which are available in most of the park. Really nice "park model" cabins are available throughout the campgrounds for a charge of $49. We were there on a weekend and there were a number of scheduled activities both for adults and kids, excellent live music, a discounted buffet style dinner, and a DJ in the evening in the restaurant, which also features a full bar and an adult center with an adults only pool.
We found a beautiful grassy site on one of the two lakes, and enjoyed beautiful views of the mountains and the lake. There were a fair number of campers fishing in the lakes--we saw a few catfish and trout.
The area is resplendent with trees of every kind, willow, cottonwood, pine, oak, crepe myrtle. This campground is very park-like as opposed to seeming more natural and rural. There is a lot of cultivated grassy area, although only in a small percentage of the campsites. There is an Adult center, a Family Center, a General Store, a restaurant, a reception area and an adjacent grassy area where vendors set up their wares during music events. Participation was high at the music event, and the mood was very cheerful--something we don't always see at campgrounds. The campground has many installed wi-fi stations to provide free wi-fi throughout the park, which seems quite easy to access. Unfortunately due to recent fires in the area, the wi-fi was not working at all. We have access to Sprint, Verizon and ATT on our cell phones and tablet, however, there were a high percentage of areas where we could not get cell service at all. - Joy of Life!
