We boondocked 2 nights on Memorial Day weekend in our travel trailer.
Table Mountain Campground was very scenic and beautiful. There are large pine trees, hiking / biking trails, views and wildlife. We saw squirrels, many types of birds and deer. Layered clothing is a must as the mornings can be cold then mid-day warms up a bit.
The campground host/ranger was super nice and helpful. We were stuck in Labor Day traffic up through the Cajon Pass and arrived late in the evening as a result. It was dark and cold by the time we got there, but the host came right out to meet us, then ushered us into our campsite, helped us back in and level out (our pad was a little steep). He came back to check on us the next day to see how we were doing and to make sure we had everything we needed. Though we didn't participate, he told us the campgrounds screen family movies in the outdoor amphitheatre on the weekends.
Our campsite was primitive, but just gorgeous! There are sites with full hookups in another loop of the campground, but the pads are closer together and the sites are not as pretty. The pit toilets were relatively clean and the potable water spigot wasn't too far away from us.
We had a reservation for our site, but there are some primitive campsites set aside for first-come basis.
During our walks of the campgrounds, we did take note that alot of the pads were not too level.
We will definitely return to visit this campground again! - ftrrvr_684

We stayed here briefly on our very first trip with a new (to us) Class A motorhome. When we arrived, we needed the assistance of the Camp Host to change sites because ours was as steep as a playground slide, and we couldn't get level despite blocks and boards. No one was available, nor was there a sign saying when s/he would return. Perhaps because of this, the noise went on well after 11 p.m. Even worse, when we left the next day, large untrimmed branches overhanging the road left broad, deep scratches in the side of our coach. This is very traumatic when it's your first trip with a new toy! Class A motorhomes -- beware! Avoid this campground! - Doberpug

Very nice park in the desert but close to all the city stuff. Large pool and hot tub! Stayed for a few weeks, even broke down here and was able to change injector out in my RV site. A lot of full timers in the back. You can Uber anywhere for fairly cheap. Would come again when we visit our friends in Adelanto. - Tim Thiemann

quiet, but spaces are very tight. Slide outs meet your neighbor. Too many section 8 residents bring down the park. No TV unless you stay a month. Good location, close to stores and restaurants. - Ted Cottingham

We stayed here several times in past years. This will be the last time. The park is over run with full time residents who have cable TV. No cable for short stay residents. Antenna reception is poor. No major network Channels. The spaces are gravel and narrow. - fourniner

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!

Nice park. Good electric. Water pressure is low about 30. Pretty good level spots. All the trash bins are over full. Roads are easy to navigate. Nice people running the place. Would stay again. Only note is if you buy food in the store check the dates. Pretty much everything is out dated by 3 month. - neilontheroad

Rate reflects weekly stay. Although there were a few drawbacks, this little campground was a pleasant surprise, given the surroundings. Friendly manager and assistant made for smooth check-in (after some reservation confusion, see below.) Large number of what appear to be permanent and long term residents, but a decent number of somewhat large pull-through sites in center of CG in a flat, level, gravel covered area. The one loop road around inside of park is huge, and maneuvering is a breeze. Good cable TV, good Verizon signal, and although the WiFi signal was strong, we could not connect successfully to it. Never did ask manager about that, as we used Verizon hotspot during stay. Power pedestal nice and high to fit an EMS device. One thing to plan on: on evening of pulling in, maintenance guy said "You know not to drink the water, right?", and proceeded to tell me about how awful the town water is, apparently contaminated years ago by old military base. Park manager later agreed with him. So, we bought and refilled a few gallons for our stay. Although out in sparsely populated area, the roads past park are fairly busy, so there was a lot of road noise. Bathroom/showers very nice and clean, though showers could be better, as they lack soap trays and hooks. Check and recheck your reservations here! Made initial reservation here 7 months prior to arrival. When I called again 3 weeks before arrival, they had no record of it. Then when I arrived, manager said he gave my back-in spot away by mistake. But, it ended up good, as the pull thrus were much bigger, although they lacked patios and picnic table. Area to walk dog in desert scrub out gate in back fence. Given other choices in area, I would actually stay here again if needed, as overall experience was positive. - We Roamed and Rambled

We stayed here for an overnighter on the way from Northern California to the Palm Springs area. The park was conveniently located right off of Highway 395. Although, we arrived at night, two kind park staff employees led us to our site and guided Us into the pull-through site. The park was very quiet, clean and the hookups were centrally located. The site was level and we large so we didn't need to unhook the toad. We will definitely return. - Hitch2go

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

We only overnighted here. It was a weekday, off season, and the place was pretty much empty. The site was very nice with lots of trees and shrubs and privacy. The RV sites are pretty small, though, so I wouldn't recommend it for big rigs. Even though we enjoyed the naturalness of the site, at $50 it was WAY overpriced in my opinion. - Pdxjoanne

Lake Silverwood has inherited the college type party atmosphere for summer. That means loud noise and crazy college kids running around like its spring break. Head to the full hookup sites if you want a quieter atmosphere. Hit the beach early and find a quiet spot there so you can avoid the numbskulls. - User3403

Another typical CA state park- a bit run down and dirty, tiny sites close together, packed on weekends. This is a wonderful mountain reservoir, clean and scenic. With CA-138 running along 3 sides of the canyon, don't expect any quiet. The road in (from I-15 to the west of the park), roads within, and sites are a bit tight for a big rig, but with care and skill can be managed. Friendly rangers. - Windjammer
