My review is to put to rest the negative reviews. We toured this site for our annual family coming up the August and even during a week day the park had a number of sites occupied. All of the facility areas were clean an maintained. Restrooms were easily accessible and game room, group room were clean. Management was very helpful in assisting me to determine if this campground would fit our needs. I have to say that I was impressed and the reunion committee will be making the final decision. Hopefully they will feel the same way I do. - Susan Ollson

Found this park online on another website. Reviews were not flattering. This park is undergoing some improvements and the staff is hard working and personable. It is a good park with easy access. There is no Wi-Fi and cell customers for Verizon and Sprint will be disappointed. T-Mobile worked great. The permanent residents are in another section of the park. The park is very laid back. There is a bar/restaurant on site open to the public and families. Will do this again. - PCH Warrior

RPI rate. I have to say this is an interesting RV Park. If RPI had a merit system which RV parks were rated, rather than the available amenities, Oak Glen Resort would be in trouble. It appears the park is having the dollars sucked out of it, and someone is letting it go. The employees are very accommodating, friendly and treat the guest very well. The shower/restroom was clean and looked nice. The individual sites, interior roads are in extremely poor condition. Pot holes, weeds, and just an unkempt appearance throughout the park. Which is split into 2 sections, one for weekend or temporary guest and one for the permanent residents. A sign saying private road end of the resort separates the 2 parks. The Parks web site said it has 182 campsites, which most are in the private residence area, which I have to admit looked like it might be better maintained, which doesn’t say much. The web site also claims it has a restaurant, I didn’t see it or any of the buildings that could hold it didn’t look like a place I would eat at. The park is nestled in a nice mountainous area and they have a tiny village of a restaurant and kiosk, petting zoo, train and some craft stores, nice for the first time but nothing like Julian area, for those who know that area. Overall the employees were very good but I didn’t leave anything there. Wi-Fi is available at $2 per night but I kept getting knocked off and had to re-login. And as an RPI guest which I had to pay an extra $4 service fee? don't understand that. - Zgork

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 RV/campground is all sand, with no grass or gravel to be seen. However, there was not a lot of dust blowing, which was surprising considering all the sand. It does have a lake with various plant life and greenery surrounding it, as well as many ducks. Our spot was very spacious, with a picnic table, fire ring, and full, semi-tall hedges providing privacy. Also plenty of space to park our SUV. All in all this is a good place to stay for a few nights (or maybe longer), although I wouldn't do that mid-summer since it would be very hot. Joshua Tree National Park is a great place to go hiking and rappelling (if that's your thing). The rock formations and vegetation are really very beautiful and different. Just don't go in the summer, when temps can reach 115 and more. - Lavendergrey

Very nice and quiet RV Park. We stayed in Pull through site. The ground is covered with sand. It was not windy when we were there, so no blowing sand. There are bushes on both sides for privacy. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The campground is located about 6 miles from Hwy 62. We would stay there again if we camp in Joshua Tree. - TerryCSD15

The whole place is a big sand pit, but it's hard sand, so leveling was easy, even though the site wasn't level. They charge $2.50 per dog & it seems to encourage people to leave their dog's waste behind. I've never seen so much dog poo. I've also never had to pay extra for my dog. But the biggest complaint is that they only have ONE dump station. And no sewer hook-ups. So you have to wait in line on the day you leave. The bathrooms are separate from the shower rooms. Clean, but dated. It's a quiet park, but I wouldn't go back. Check-in took a while because the receptionist was on the phone with a customer. Sites are fairly private, with tall hedges between sites. Some sites are twice as big as others. We have a big rig, but we were given a small site. - Basil

This is our second summer spending a month here. The $32 rate reflects $1,000 including utilities. We like it here. Very friendly management and staff make you feel welcome. Sites have ample room between them, though not private, and some are a little tricky to get into for big rigs. The sites toward the back are quieter but have no view except into the forest, while the sites near the road are noisier but have more of a view across the valley, which is nice for watching the summer monsoon storms, so those are fine if you are an early riser anyway and don't care about road noise waking you up. Some sites are treed, while others are open, with a paved pad, mostly level, surrounded by dirt with sparse vegetation. Each has a picnic table and most have fire rings. The loop road was repaved in 2018. We don't use camp facilities but restrooms seemed very clean, as did the laundry room (2 washers 1.25, 2 dryers 0.35). The 50 amp utilities and camp wifi worked well; our T-Mobile and Dish came in great (some may have issues in treed sites). It's about 1/4 mile from the lake, which is probably why it fills up after the lakefront facilities. As a cyclist that's not a major issue since I can get to the fabulous 3-mile Alpine Pedal Path along the lake in just a few minutes, cutting through the elementary school across the street. It is so pretty I ride it at least once a day, and can also easily access the bike routes through the rest of town. This is ride BB1 (and BB3) in enCYCLEpedia Southern California. - enCYCLEpedia

This is a nice, if rather small, RV park. The site we had was a good size overall, with a somewhat narrow - but very level - asphalt vehicle pad. With no bushes or anything right next to the pad , there was effectively unlimited space for our slide-outs. As shown in the park's web site photos, there isn't much in the way of privacy between spaces. But that also lends a fairly open feeling to an otherwise small property. Except for the pads themselves, the sites are mostly dirt with gorgeous mature pines scattered throughout the park. We were near a WiFi repeater that provided enough signal and bandwidth to stream 1080p movies. The bathrooms & showers here are pretty much the cleanest ones I've ever seen at an RV park. The park is just a couple minutes' drive to Big Bear City, the Discovery Center, hiking, skiing, off-roading, etc., so there's plenty to do nearby while visiting. Park utilities were all good, though a bit more water pressure would have been nice. Overall, I think this is a great little campground to stay at while exploring Big Bear. I look forward to staying here again! - pantherjeep

Pine Tree is clean and fairly quiet despite being close to the road. Small park - only about 20 sites. Wifi is spotty and there are no other amenities other than the very clean bathrooms. Tight for for big rigs. A bit pricey, but we would use it again. - Suzanna M

This is park has great amenities and some scheduled activities. The sites are quite close but expected for its location. We lucked out by not having anyone parked beside us except for 1 night and it was a small TT so we felt very spacious. We arrived at noon and was told they would charge us an add'l $25 for checking-in an hour early. Though they didn't want us to, we just spent the hour in their check-in lane. Nice flowers, walking areas, and pool/spa. Very pretty and nice social time. We did have shade at the pool and the spa from trees and the shadow of a building. There is a 2nd adult-only pool and spa in the back of the grounds but way too small, isolated, and with a cement wall around it that in my humble opinion it doesn't count. The train is irritating but the horn was only blown once that we heard in our 9 night stay. It is close enough that our 23 tons would shake and conversation would have to halt when we were outside. Can't imagine being in a 5er or a TT with that. The sites are not particularly long. Rules say not to hang over their grass but many units have to (including us) so tow vehicles can fit on the site. We parallel parked in front of our coach and just barely made it. We made reservations last minute so we got a Premium site (bottom level). As we walked around, we could not see much difference in the Premium to the Super Platinum. Would spend the extra money. - FT Travelers3

First let me say that this resort is a 10 if you are looking just at amenities. It is very beautiful and right now it is very green. Everything is clean and well kept. That said, check-in was not friendly. The sites are extremely short and tight. Luckily, this time of year the park is fairly empty so there is no one in close proximity to my rig. If this park were full the rigs would be very close together and most parking would have to be offsite. As I am not one who uses the amenities, I did not find this to be worth the price. - Freedom Bus

Made better time than expected so started calling for reservations when got near Palm Springs area. Either facilities were closed for the weekend or didn't answer the phone so were glad to reach a real person. Unfortunately directions provided were very vague even when called the second time for more details so we were very glad when we found it. Luckily I had been given the gate code. Thankful for tall trees giving shade as it was 106 at arrival. Pool was in full sun so couldn't enjoy it. Very clean bathroom with a ledge preventing water from flowing into drying area. Only negative is train noise ongoing through the night. - RetiredUSN

For short term stays- in a pinch- ok, but be prepared for lots of tight turns and obstacles.
The park itself looks ok. Yes- there are lots of long term residents. I didn't notice any junker RVs there. There are lots of long term storage sites as well. The few people that we met there were nice and would wave. The reason for 2 stars- we stayed 3 nights and they gave us a back in site. OK no problem. Except its uphill and in a small cul-de-sac and oh, since there are full timers there- go ahead and get the fifthwheel in around all of their cars and stuff. The check in was easy, check out even easier. The hook ups were easy. There were 30 and 50amp hook ups. Site was pretty level. It had cigarette butts all over it so that's another negative. Our fifth wheel is 36’. We are not planning on coming back to this campground. Unless they get better short term sites. - Layn

Though this RV park has great potential it is not pursued. Most of the spaces are permanent residents in old RV's most appear not movable. The residents do not keep up their sites so it looks horrid. Broken down vehicles and trash (maybe personal belongings) surround most of the permanent residents sites. This is not much more than an expensive overnight stopover. There my was no picnic table at my site. Next time I am in the area I will go to a Walmart or rest area which is comparable to this RV park only free. There is no place to dump your trash. On a positive note it was quiet. - pjkoths

Stayed here for 3 months during the winter. Roads could use some work, some tight turns; under new management, they are working on landscaping (mostly desert area). Spots are gravel with a concrete patio. There are a lot of full time residents but all were very nice. Some of the run down RV's are being weeded out (I'm sure that takes time). Our spot was up on a hill, could get windy at times. Never any issues with the laundry services. Nice pool and hot tub. Others stated they didn't feel safe, we never had an issue with anyone there or in the area. We walked our dogs all through the nearby neighborhoods without any problems at all. My husband rode his bike to the nearby Walmart and grocery store. Several families in the park with kids; had a park Halloween party that was fun. Office staff friendly and helpful. No this is not a high dollar resort, but it is a nice and safe place to stay. I worked in San Bernardino so this was a good spot for us to have as a home base. We would stay again. - LaneyC RN

This is the third time we have stayed in this RV Resort on the North Shore having previously stayed at another RV park on the South Shore of Big Bear Lake for many years. If you prefer spotlessly clean, wide pads, space between neighbors, there is no other option than this RV Resort in or around Big Bear Lake. The other park we use to stay at has gravel sites and very little privacy between other RVs and the other two or three other options at the Lake are way substandard in comparison, or though less expensive. This is not however a wild tail gate party type place except on 4th of July and it also isn't a let the kids run wild type place and play in the streets type place, more quiet, older, friendly people, this because all the sites are privately owned. We rented directly from an owner and that's why we got a lower price than advertised through the rental office which rents for owners at advertised prices of $125/night off the lake and up to $300/night right on the lake. We stayed 6 weeks this trip and will definitely come back again. Nice towns nearby with national supermarket, hardware stores, restaurants etc. National Forrest surrounds the resort just outside the gate. Boating, fishing, hiking, weekend events in the village all within 2 to 5 miles. - Dennis T.

Beautiful location, right on Big Bear Lake. However, it's a few miles from town. Each space is privately owned, from basic to elaborately developed. Sites are large. We chose our site based on photos on the website, but we're disappointed to find out the BBQ was out of service, no cable or Internet available (unless you want to walk up to the office, get a password and use theirs). The owners of our site, #55, must of had a hard line sewer connection because the connection was located 12" above grade in a planter bed, making it difficult to drain my tanks. We would stay there again at a different site, only after verifying the all amenities are available and working. - Recycled

Expensive and exclusive site with entirely privately owned pitches, some of which are rented out by their owners. Very smart and well maintained with concrete pitches. Being privately owned the pitches were generally very well cared for, many with manicured gardens. Not proper camping really but very comfortable and a lovely pool. Felt like we had to be on our best behaviour! Stunning location next to the lake. Only irritation was lack of Wi-Fi. - NickG

Absolutlely my worst RVing experience. Run by n beer drinking, power-tripping manager. Spaces too small for 37' RV. Caters to long term residents. Go up the street to Big Bear Shores or Serrano campground. - darthfadar

The campground is family owned and operated. Every member of the family is friendly and very helpful. The store is always well stocked and they dont rip you off with high prices for last minute items you forgot at home. They go above and beyond to help you find your space, get parked and help you get level and make sure that your site is clean before you go into it. They enforce quiet time strictly, have clean bathrooms and showers, its just a nice place to stay. I have gone there 2-3 times a year during the summer for the last 5 years and will continue to go there as long as I will be RVing. - bushey562

Love this park! Full hook-ups at Snowberry Loop. Staff are very helpful. Need reservations 6 months in advance if you want to stay over a weekend. Trails here are well maintained. - BetseyH

Nice campground and... bonus! because it has full hookups in a National park. lots of trees, short walk to the lake. Our site, 64 on the snow berry loop, was level and had ample room to park our trailer and still have our truck on the pad. There are a lot of trails to walk/hike and it is fairly quiet though it is close to the highway and road noise is present. The power was clean, however, the 30 amp outlet was a little loose. It was not a problem during our stay as we did not need air conditioning. It got cold!! Reservations, especially for the full hook up RV sites, are difficult to get and you have to book early. Will definitely stay here again. - JP-JP

We boondocked 2 nights at Serrano Campgrounds.
The campground was full and there were a lot of families with small children camping and having a good time. Although the campgrounds are quite beautiful with abundant trees and scenery, we found the sites to be too close for comfort. Additionally, the campground was very smoky from campfires late into the night and early morning probably due to the nature of the sites being so close together and the younger crowds that stay up late to party.
There are sites with hookups but as this is the closest campground to Big Bear Lake, they were all taken. We walked the park and found the hookup sites seemed to be about the same size as the tent sites.
We peeked inside the bathhouses and they have private showers with locking doors, roomy enough with an area for changing too.
I would definitely suggest this park to younger families with children or college kids, however, we will probably not return to this park because we appreciate a little more solitude and space while camping. - ftrrvr_684
