We arrived here after showing up for a reservation at the Catalina RV Park up the street, which was a total armpit. We got out of there as fast as we could and were able to snag the last spot available. It was cramped, but most places near the beach are. No real complaints here, but considering the area and what the alternatives are, it was okay. The train at 10 pm and 2 am every night was jolting to all of us, but it comes with the territory. The guy in the office was helpful and nice and the pool and other facilities were clean, though it rained and we weren't able to use the pool like we had planned. We stayed here to have a base-camp for some time at Legoland, which was 5 minutes away. Not bad overall, but we didn't do the beach thing, so I can't vouch for the other comments about difficult access. I thought the price was a little high, but we felt safe and everything was tidy and well-maintained.
We camped here with another family and liked the way we could park side-by-side with our awnings and front doors facing each other to create one big campsite. The sites were good sized and the whole place is pretty, overall. HOWEVER: Watch out for the mosquitos!!! We also had the terrible misfortune to be directly across from a group of individuals who partied hard till 2 am the first night, and 5 am the second night. Park security did NOTHING and they got an earful from me at check-out. I'll come back, but only if I have the chance to talk to security beforehand and get a promise from them that they will enforce their so-called rule of no noise after 10 pm.
We were so impressed with this place! Though the campsites offer little shade and no picnic tables (WHY???), they are clean, nicely spaced and the clubhouse is just wonderful! The pool is sparkling clean, the laundry facilities are fantastic, staff is helpful and friendly, and they offer a shuttle bus to and from the casino right from your RV. We had the casino buffet for dinner and it was wonderful! Very, very nice place!
We were lucky enough to get to stay here on opening weekend, and they treated us to all sorts of entertainment and free goodies. It ALMOST made the heat of Bakersfield tolerable! The clubhouse and restaurant are beautiful, the sites, though simple and not very big, are clean and they even manage to keep the grass green in that heat. If I ever have to go to Bakersfield again, I'll stay here! Camping World is just up the street from them, too!
We had a great spot right on the river and were able to float off down the Kern right from our campsite. The spots next to the water have no sewer hook-ups, just water and electricity, so be warned! They didn't tell us that when we booked it. They do have sewer hook-up sites, but they are in the least-desired part of the campground. It's small and hardly much room to bike ride, if you like to do that as a family, like we do. I was a little bored with not much to do, but it was a shady place and very quiet.
I had a great time here and loved the water aerobics class in the morning and the clean beach. Lots of family activities kept us at the clubhouse having fun, which was a good thing because our campsite was narrow and cramped. We got the cheapest site available and still spent $85 a night!! Ouch! I'd go back because I had fun, but my husband is still bitter about spending 15 minutes trying to back our RV into that tiny, tiny campsite. He is also still mad about the $$$$$ we spent!
This was the worst place I have every camped. Don't have a clue why the last reviewer was so sad to leave because I and the 2 other families camping with us couldn't get out of there fast enough! It is located next door (no exaggeration) to cow farm and the flies are out of control. I won't even go into the smell. We stayed there free and had to sit through a nasty sales pitch that never ended. Here's what I did like: lots of family activities, great country store and rec room facilities. I just couldn't get past the flies and the stink and I wouldn't eat a fish out of that green swamp if you paid me!
This has got to be one of my favorite places! I strongly suggest that you book a water-front space, otherwise you will be in a parking lot-type setting. My friends were in 44 and we were in 46. We had fabulous views and fishing right in front of us. Miles of bike trails and tons of activities. It is a wonderful family park. We were here over Memorial Day weekend and the lady in the front office was great about helping us get our 2 spaces close together. Nice staff, great store, lake activities and close to shopping. Loved it!
Even though this park is literally right next to the freeway, you wouldn't know it! It is shady with lots of level paved areas for biking. We had a lovely time camping with another family and we were situated next to a huge green lawn, probably an acre wide. The kids had a great place to play. No noise problems to report at night. We were there just days after the big fire so we weren't allowed to have a campfire, but that was understandable! Very nice creek-side sites are available and we'll try to get one of them next time. We will definitely be back!
The staff was very accommodating to us when we decided last-minute to camp for the weekend (we live locally). It is family-run, so there was a husband/wife team who happily came out and checked us in around 7:30 pm. We enjoyed ourselves, but the landscape is dull (not the fault of the campground), though they have provided lots of trees. Our only complaint is that they lock the place up at an early hour, so I had to wait till morning to make a run to the drugstore for my sick child since I wouldn't be able to get back in! It's also really far out past wine country and a good 15 minute drive to get to that nearest drugstore in Temecula. Still, it was a nice little weekend and the kids loved the little zoo and the hay ride.
