Ok, I feel badly because this was the only place that answered the phone at 9 pm and let us in. We had gotten robbed while camping at another park, and wanted to leave that location. But ... this place was a pit. We got placed in the front section, to the right of the check-in (which took 20 minutes - I'm surprised they didn't take our blood type and make us pee in a cup). The "hookup" sparked and the faceplate fell off when we tried to plug in. There were animal droppings everywhere underfoot. We didn't bother hooking up our water. Frankly, the place was just disgusting. We came late, left early and all for the highway robbery of $59. Pass this one by and don't look back. - Experiencebliss

This park is mostly long term residents, very few sites available to reserve nightly. The manager stated that their company policy is that if a long term resident extends, a nightly person even with reservations is placed in their overflow area. The overflow area was stated to have hookups, but water and electric only, no sewer. In fact there were no hook ups; electric was run from the office and not sufficient to run AC. If you plan to stay during warm months, I would recommend you have a working generator for AC. Water hookup was fine. The water hook ups are hose bibs around the perimeter of the overflow, which is a very large parking lot. The water hook ups were fine. The restrooms were clean; the staff was friendly and as accommodating as they could be. The park was overall in decent shape, nice in the overflow area where we parked, but many sites inside the park were not well kept up. There is no dump station at this park. - MarvMarvs

The worst RV park where we've ever stayed. Owners break their own rules. They claim no coaches older than 12 years, yet most were. 8'x8' tent set up next to our site made it nearly impossible to park (tents supposedly not allowed). Filthiest park I've been in with trash strewn everywhere. No obvious signs of maintenance. Backing in is necessary yet the sites are angled the wrong way to the direction of the street. Parking of vehicles on both sides of the very narrow roads also make parking a real challenge. Dogs running off-leash. "Dog Park" is long and wide enough but parked vehicles, trailers, etc cover the whole thing making it impossible to use. Dog waste everywhere. Phone contact with owners and managers was very unpleasant. We've paid less for much better accommodations. Honestly, don't even think twice about staying if you see this name and the photos are an illusion! Learn from our mistake. - jbd

This campground experienced a terrible fire in December. However, they have made a great comeback. It looks beautiful. Cable TV doesn't work, the zip line is gone, but other activities and the sparkling pool are all open. We took our six year old grand child and she had a blast. Great campground for kids. Sites are wide. Staff terrific. They are still recovering, but still a great experience. - Doogiesmom

We had a great inaugural camping experience at this KOA! This was our first time at a KOA with our brand new tent trailer. We had our 2 1/2 year old grandson with us. We had previously always stayed at state or national park campgrounds. Having electricity and water and free showers was a plus. Overall our experience was very good. The campground is nicely laid out and relatively clean and maintained. There are lots of activities for kids (even though our little guy was too small for some). The facilities were convenient and fairly well maintained although the bathrooms and showers could have been a little cleaner. We camped midweek so the place was not crowded and was very quiet. - Wolfewolfe6

This park is paradise for little kids in summer. Lots of other kids. Lots of activities. Crafts, rock-wall, Big-Foot hike at dusk. Lovely pool. The sites are wooded and pretty. Staff is very friendly. Downside is no sewer hookups and WiFi doesn't work. We will return. We also had a group event here a couple of years ago. They did a great job for us, and we enjoyed our stay, although the cost for club-house use is a little steep. We will stay here again. - Doogiesmom

Dry, dusty and empty. That was the campsite at the end of September 2009. No doubt this lake is very popular with boaters and is likely very busy in prime season. Our visit was a disappointment: the restrooms were gag-a-maggot dirty, the dust was overwhelming and there just wasn't much to be said in favor of the campground except it's location which is half way between the Hwy 101 and I-5 freeways between Ventura and Magic Mountain. This campground's not for us - we will not stay again. - Aloha Utah

Very pleasant campground - we had space #25, mostly level. Fire ring & table at site. Shaded with olive trees (caution! Olives on ground!). This is park is adjacent to L.A. and attracts many families. Park has snack bar. Golf cart sells both ice and firewood. Very nice get away; enjoyable. Fishing & boat rentals at lake. Snack bar. - ms883

We've stayed at Steckel Park several times within the last few months. The park itself is clean, camp hosts are very nice, and there are many trees. The overnight park is mostly dry camping with a small section in the middle for full hookups. Most of the tent sites are within close proximity to the main road so I would not recommend. The full hookup sites are all clean but somewhat close together. The back part of the park for dry campers is a bit more spread out.
The only bad parts about this park are the proximity to the main road (hear traffic all night) and the day use area bleeding over into the camping area. The campers are generally friendly but the folks coming over from the day use area are loud, obnoxious, and sometimes unbearable! The camp host try's to help but it usually dosn't work. And the police usually take a few hours to respond. Look at the park map before booking a site as some are close to the road and/or close together.
Per the camp host, you do NOT want to be there during any holidays as the park gets packed, it's loud, and music all hours of the night. I believe him!
We'll return for weekend getaways. Happy camping! - Kurt and Deb

We had a nice shaded back-in site. The pull through sites are very close. The tent sites are really neat and some are close to a creek. The manager was super nice. It is in a larger day use park with big peacocks in it. Loved listening to them. Dogs can't go in the day use area but are allowed in the camping area. - Two_Huschels

Nice county park with ten full hookup sites,regular spaced, level concrete pad, back in, picnic table, and fire pit. When we camped there in December just two other campers were there. It was fairly quiet during night time. Our rate reflects the winter rate which is less expensive than the other park across the creek. Good place for a weekend or stop-over. The exit lane has a tight turn so we took the entrance lane and had no trouble with our 34'fifth wheel. We would not recommend anything larger than 40'. We would stay there again. - TheSchweitzers

The park is very clean, full hook-ups with 30/50 amp paved sites long enough for 40' MH with toad. Staff very helpful. There are assorted trees but we were also able to get a satellite-friendly site. We only wish they did not have so many speed bumps. Hard maneuvering over them. We would definitely stay there again. This was our third visit. - don-marg

Sites in this park vary tremendously. There are large areas where RV's are packed in like sardines. I have rarely seen sites so close. It looks like a lot of people in these sites are relatively long term residents. We had one of the 18 sites in a circle around a cabana. Lots of room and nice views of the surrounding hills. We had a lawn next to our site with a picnic table. The pad was gravel an a little messy. There was no landscaping or privacy. They keep a list in the office of satellite dish friendly sites and allows us to pick one. A nice touch. The nicer sites cost more but are worth it. There are lots of amenities- pool, tennis court, store, etc. - thyde

This park used to be nice and clean. Once the baseball fields which are part of the park opened, the public now has access to the restrooms at one end of the park where the overnighters stay, and thus the cleanliness has deteriorated. The park is conveniently located, but the cleanliness and overall appearance has gone downhill over the last two years. Still good for an overnight location, and a home base for visiting the major city areas. - TomW

This park re-opened on Easter 2018 and is a good choice in the Ventura area. Camp host told me it will stay open until the next time the adjacent river floods, which probably won't be until late fall 2018, if it happens. The campground is a bit run down (California budget issues), but has a nice layout, has older but functional bathrooms with hot showers (signs say you need quarters but you don't), and is quiet at night (trains are a long way off unlike other places in Ventura where they are right next to you all night long). No dump station or hookups. Beautiful empty beach is a short walk over the dunes. No day use allowed - only campers, so you have a gorgeous stretch of California beach almost to yourself. Saw several big rigs at some sites. Strong Verizon signal. Kiosk is open 8-6 with self-register after 6. Gate gets locked 10pm-8 am; you can drive out any time, but can't get back in after 10pm. I arrived on a Friday just as the kiosk was closing and there were lots of sites available as many people mistakenly think this park is still closed. Paid $35 a night for my RV which is a great deal in California to be this close to the beach. Extra vehicle fee is $10. - SV5B

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Most of the sites are very spacious with lots of shade. The beach is close by and is a nice beach. There are some great trails for hiking. The people tend to be very friendly. The only drawback of this campground is that it doesn't have any hookups, but it does have a dump station and many spigots throughout the park. - moore
