Fishing, boat rentals, camping, hiking, bicycle trails, kids playground and a family friendly splash zone, BBQ areas. This is a great location just a few miles away from the temecula city life. Overnight campers enjoy the splash zone for free or just pay for a day visit and pay a per person rate. I recommend camping for less than $35...

We go camping every year, so this year we decided to try something new. The rangers called the cops on us the first night for being too loud rather than approaching us about it. We had about 5 camp sites reserved so we had a pretty large group. It's not much of a camp ground, looks more like a large...

Skinner used to be a well kept secret, but not anymore. There are three camping areas. A and B tend to be a bit louder/rowdier than C. C is farther from the water park, lake, and boat launch, but is generally quieter. Lots of open grass areas for recreating, and kids playgrounds as well. The sites in C are pretty...

For a nominal fee we visited the Splash Pad at the park. The Park has a variety of water features that all ages can cool off and have fun. The entrance to the park for the day was only $6.00 per car. We had kids that ranged from toddler to young adult and we all had fun. The Pad was...

My uncle comes here and a lot and only lives a few miles and he wanted us to join us to show us how to use our travel trailer for the first time and again it was just ok. The spaces are very small and no much shade we knew about the shade. We didnt have to use the restrooms...

Where to begin? 1st, don't camp here! The spots are small, and when they say little to no shade on the spots, they aren't joking. There are 4 showers each (men's & women's) for hundreds of camp sites and they aren't nice, although they don't make you pay for them which is the least they can do. The spots are...

A packed camground is s sign of good times to be had but with such large crowds the campground facilities need to be kept up with. The shower/restrooms were NASTY. The port-a-potties were over used and under maintained. They stated they were designed to accomodate 10 people for five days under normal use before requiring service. They surely see more...

I read some of the reviews and got scared to camp here but i had already booked it. The staff was very nice the rangers were very helpful too. The bathrooms were very clean and always had paper towels and toilet paper. The camp was full this weekend but it wasnt crazy. Everyone was quiet at 10 and the ranger...
