4 Reviews of Tapo Canyon Park
Hidden, quiet, little gem!

This campground happens to be very close to home so we went here to try out our brand new pull behind camper trailer for the very first time.
The campground is small, quiet and very well-kept.

In fact, every subsequent campground toilet facility I now compared to this one because it was so clean!!

Only 12 sites - all have full hook ups, picnic table and fire pit.

Make note! There is no Wi-Fi here and as best we could tell , no cellular signal for any provider.

Large grassy area for picnicking etc. Small park area for the children. And a really amazing looking archery zone that the public can use on Saturdays for a mere $5

Go here to relax and disconnect! We loved it. 

Easy Access, Low Profile

My wife and I swung by the park for a quick survey. It’s small and uncrowded. Nice bathroom facilities, grass and picnic area. Hooks and dump station. Day fees are $2.00. We did not meet the camp host. Reservations are made online.

Good access to the hills but a better trail, Tapo Canyon trail is a mile down the road. It’s a much wider trail, easier to see the rattlesnakes. Rattlesnake warnings are posted everywhere in camp. See pictures for more details.

Nice quiet campground

Quite campground. Full hook ups. 15, 30, 5p amp electrical, water, sewer , but no phone or internet. That's the best part. Good place to disconnect and listen to nature.

First to Review
Great for RVs, not so much for tents

The first thing you should know about Tapo Canyon Park is that for actual tent camping, you will be in either decomposed granite or concrete. The second thing is that there is no cell service and no phone landlines there. 

The park is very nice, and very well maintained. There is a large grass area with an upgraded playground, ample covered picnic area for large groups, and an archery range (private, but open to the public on Saturdays).

The archery range is one of the best in California. There is a members area and the original range is open to the public on Saturdays from 9-1, with a nominal $5 fee.

The campsites are designed for RVs. I have camped here in a tent and there is no way to drive a stake into the ground. The sites are fairly large and well spread out for an RV lot. 

Each site has a fireplace, picnic table, and full hook ups. There is not much shade. The sites are very well maintained daily by the camp host Terri. 

At night you can hear the coyotes calling as they roam the rugged hills, but don't worry it's a very safe park.

I would give the park 4 stars for camping in an RV, 2 stars for tent camping, the facility as a whole is probably a 4.
