Spent Spring break here with the family. We read a lot of reviews on this park - many of them mixed. Overall, this park did not disappoint - too much.
Amenities are very good for young kids. Canopy Court area has easy and close access to the splash pad, the playground, a large grass area, and even the pool. The boat launch is very near by too but we had no use for that.
This park is clean! Like no park I have seen before. The staff are always moving around the grounds and “picking up” as they go. Quiet hours are strict - some may see that as a bad thing but I appreciate it. Even with 4 young kids, we like that the park slowed down right on time.
Only arguments - the spots are relatively tight. We reserved a spot for a rig with slide outs on both sides to accommodate our 39’er but it took some creative parking to get the rig into the spot in a way that we could actually open both sides. Once in, we had to make sure we pulled back far enough otherwise the very nice provided picnic table would of been right next to the front wheel. Water pressure is a bit low too but nothing terrible.
Location wise - awesome. We used the campground as a base camp to spend time in LA and San Diego as well as a day in Joshua Tree National Park. 1-2 hours from everything.
We will definitely be back.
Pros: Close to town, Clean flush toilets/ bathrooms, RV sites, family friendly, close to trails
Cons: not much privacy, books up early
Winter camping in the back loop is one of my most favorite things ever. If you especiAlly lucky, you may even see a Bighorn Sheep or two come through early in the morning. Do t miss the sunrise as well!
I was in spot 36, which was right by the dumpster [convenient but loud … no need to slam the lid]. The trees were a bit sparse so the road was visible and folks out for a wander and I could see each other. The camping spot around the bend was actually above mine with no shielded view and while their generator was quiet their conversations and presence were heard and felt.
I would camp there again but would reserve earlier for a better selection of camping spots.
Fantastic park. Well kept, beautiful surroundings with hiking trails, big and private spots and clean bathrooms. Camping cabins available. The second interior RV loop is way nicer and more private spots than the first. We were site 37 and it was great. Both electric and water hookups in all RV spots and campground dump station on site. Julian and Winona are fun day trips. Calico Cider in Wynona is an A+.
Such a fun place to walk around and take in the views. It’s the perfect time of year to go!
Big Space and big sky! We camped in February and it was cold at night but perfect day hiking weather. Hiked up to palm grove oasis. There is so much natural beauty here. We saw big horned sheep.
In February we had the place to ourselves. Temperature dropped to 43'. Best hook up site #24. Best tent site #65. A few pretty good trails to get the heart pumping. We took the Cedar Trail on the left side of the fork. The water at the spigots spewed dark brown water. Bring your own water source. Definitely cougar country so kept pups close to us. Clean bathrooms and wild stormy skies.
Julian is a great destination, and having a nice campground so close is really nice. We had a few spots between our group, and they were all good for our tents. Some were shadier than others (one spot was pretty exposed), and the facilities were nice.
We also happened to be camping when an astronomy group was there so it was cool to look through their telescopes and enjoy the starry skies!
Learning that was a city run campground things made more sense.
Being a family of 3 kids, 3 dogs, 3 adults and a cat that run our business from the road there’s things that are important to us as digital nomads. You can follow us at EmpoweringHumansAdventures.com
Things that we loved:
- Very safe & secure.
- The staff was incredible.
- Ideal for children with all the fun things to do.
Not so much:
Internet was great but it had bandwidth restraints that would turn your internet off after very small amounts of data used. There was no option to upgrade so you had to use your own hotspots. Very disappointing and will be one of the reasons we do t go back.
The beach was right there, close and beautiful right on Lake Elsinore. Yet the beach was disgusting, stinky and covered with algae. There wasn’t clear information on the lake. We chose this Campground because of the beach and location.
The sites were all uneven. Every camper we saw had to do major leveling efforts.
This place has HUGE potential but there’s a LOT to fix.
