Not much here, but if it's just a quick stop it's OK. Gravel, flat, long, pull thru, full hook-up sites. That's about it.
My wife and I have stayed at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds RV Park several times in the past because of its location close to where our boys live in Lancaster. The park is large enough that reservations usually are not needed. It has no trees, grass, club houses, pools, pet areas (except for the desert across the street) it also has no laundry facilities or cable. It is a bare minimum city run park with no RV club discounts. It does however have large restroom and showers that are usually clean and in working order that are taken care of by a cleaning crew. The park is all asphalt and it has fairly wide spaces for pull thru’s and back end parking. It has a great Verizon signal and easy for RV’s of any size to maneuver. It is freeway close. Use your GPS and not the street address. It will only take you to the Fairgrounds office. The park is off 30th St. W. and Ave. G-8.
As for the cons. Read the park rules posted on the wall when you arrive and do the self serve check in and then just flush the rules out of your mind because there is no one who enforces these rules once you clear the front gates. While we know the park is located next to the Fairgrounds we do expect to hear loud speakers during the day if there is an event going on. You may hear a concert till 2am on the weekend. There is also an off road motocross track next door that you will hear loud motorcycles and a PA on Friday to Sunday from 8am to 4PM. We can deal with that but, the go carts, dirt bikes, motorized skateboards and dogs running lose in the park itself should not be expected at an RV park especially run by the city. There is one manager on site and she does nothing but look after her flowers at her RV and just collect the money from the box. If you call her on the list ph. # if will go to voice mail. She does nothing if you ask her in person to do her job as a manager and advise the violators to stop. I know from experience from my past profession that talking to people who ride these loud toys or let their dogs run loose that it only brings anger, animosity and retaliation even if you politely ask someone to stop. You have to keep one eye open so they don’t vandalize your property. I have seen this happen to other nice people who just try to ask others to do the same. While I ride a Harley I don’t start it until I am ready to leave and I don’t make excessive noise to let the world know what I ride. Others don’t get that your not the only person in the world. One more reason why we left Calif.
I have personally been to the other parks in Lancaster while working and I would not tell anyone to stay in them. There more mobile home parks then RV campgrounds. This park is just conveniently close to our boys and that is why we stay here. If your looking for a really nice park in the Antelope Valley (Lancaster/Palmdale) area then you might want to check out parks in Acton.
We have been full time RVer’s since I retired and because of my background I tend to do my research on places we stay all across America (Google Earth, Good Sam, KOA and this RV Review web site and it’s reviewers have been a big help). We have a 40 ft. rig (my 28 ft. RV pulls my 12 ft. garage that carries my HD so I prefer Pull Thru’s). We look for Locations close to our reason for being there, Accessibility for our rig, Park Appeal (inviting and not run down or the look of Meth Labs), Parks that enforce their noise and pet rules, Amenities, Good accessible and working Hook Ups, We have our own Internet source so we don’t care about Park Wifi and we have a satellite so we look for no overhanging trees. It is all about just how comfortable you can make R'ving fun an enjoyable.
