clean restrooms and sites. large campground with paved roads was nice for strolling through. pretty far off the beaten path above lake elsinore. the views near by were fantastic. the staff was fairly friendly and very strict about fires and check out time. the campsites were not too close together but they were smallish. the fire pit was burried in ground so it was practically level, made me nervous about the kids.
Stayed here in late August, it’s easy to get to and close enough for a short trip out of town. The trees were nice, needed some maintenance though because a large tree fell very close to our camp and the area was covered with Poison Oak. The bugs were not enjoyable at all, there were meat bees/wasps swarming all the water faucets and the gnats were so bad we spent most our time hiding in the tent. Had intended to stay longer but the bugs drove us out. The bathroom facilities were pit and not flush so the meat bees/wasps also swarmed there.
My family stayed here when we went to Disneyland, staying out of the city was worth the commute! This campground is nice, with lots of trees for shade. It does get hot though, and there were lots of wasps while we were there. We had to cook very quickly and keep everything covered. This added some frustration to the trip. I didn't pull my camera out while we were there, it was just the one night, and it wasn't worth the wasps. Otherwise nice spot!
