This is a favorite for my wife and I. We like to stay on the older loop where we can get a spot that looks directly over the lake. Always a lot of kids around playing and running around in the park. The nights are quiet and we always feel safe there. We live only 40 Min away, but its a great escape for anybody in the East San Gabriel Valley or Inland Empire.
This is a fun little camping spot just noted of Azusa. It caters more to the tent camper as there are only a few spots with hookups. There are another handful of sites that can accommodate an under 35 footer dry camping. All sites have access to the San Gabriel river that flows year round. The place is clean but has some full timers living along side the campers. The full timers don't seem to play the same rules ( keeping dogs on a leash or sound restrictions) as campers. The price is a little steep at 50 bucks a night but I'm sure that keeps the riff-raff away. I give this 4 stars only for the river access. Having all my kids in the water building dams and swimming in the river was fantastic. Without the river this place is a 2 star. If they moved out the full timers living there in trailers, mobile homes and busted down Class A's ( in truth there are about 5 of them) and opened those spots for more rigs with hook ups it would be great. Note also that they run a cafe with the only food on the east fork, it makes it quaint. Large rigs beware: maneuvering in tight spaces here is sometimes challenging.
