Quiet place. No frills.
We have been here for over a week with no problems at all. The park ranger comes through once a day to make sure everyone is paid up. Etc. The onsite camp host is a friendly fellow, but other than a couple questions I had early on, I haven't even seen him. He mostly keeps the picnic grounds area maintained. That area is also rarely used, so it makes for a great place to walk the dog or just take a stroll. The actual sites that are open are the "lower" sites. 10-16 are the best for a big rig, are pretty level, and have shade. BUT- they back up to the train tracks. Train runs from around 6am to 9pm. So...be prepared for that. You will hear their horn and the train itself. But most of them are commuter and go by quick, about every couple hours. I would probably give the place 4 stars if it wasn't for that. But you get used to it. Kinda. Haha There is a dump station here for $15. Otherwise elec. and water at each site. And..it's only a mile or so from grocery, Home Depot, Target, and everything else.
Bad Park Keeper
Our family camped here once and have to deal with Gangster Style Park Keeper (they are not Park Rangers). Our kids had fun and made lots of noise, the Park Keepers drove their truck at high speed between our tents, jumped down with a big dog and yelled at us "Who is in charge?". We have camped many places for twenty years but this is the first time the employees of the park treat us like criminal. Never go back here again.
Close to Reagan Library
We have discovered that County Parks in the southern California area may be the best and cheapest route to go when RVing fulltime. State Parks around here are great but most of them have very little in the way of hook-ups. We stayed in Simi Valley to visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. We found a nice, quiet little Ventura County park called Oak Park. Besides the Reagan site, there are tons of "day trips" nearby.
Never saw a staff member - it was President's Day.
Natural surroundings - Trees, wooded areas and very close to a train track that runs from 7 am to 11 pm. We paid $26 a night for partial hook-ups, back-in site. You have to pay extra to use their dump site.
Bathrooms - The men's was flooded, but the women's was Ok. No showers and no soap at the sinks.
The sites were decent sized and there was only to other RVs in the park. I am sure it much more crowded during the spring-fall months. Two playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts.
They have kept the park-up, but it does not wow you. Dump station, pay station. Grill and picnic table at each site.
Our kids met some other kids staying there, and they had a nice time playing outside. These parks offer much more room to run than the RV parks that cram you in like a parking lot.
Quiet at night
Except for the occasional train passing by, which stopped around 6:30 pm, it's a very quiet park. Not much car traffic and not a lot of people camping either. Location is great and the RV sites are huge and paved. One thing I didn't like is that you have to pay an additional $25 to dump. Oh and the entrance to the park is very narrow. You'd be better off going to Tapo Canyon Park.
