“Nice campground close to town”

Overall Rating

Nice campground right at the town of Idyllwild, a very quaint little mountain town. We looked at both the Idyllwild Park campground and this state park campground. Both were nice but Idyllwild Park seemed pretty dark and lots of runoff damage to roads and sites, I also didn't see any hookup sites which we were hoping for due to the chilly weather (it was getting dark though and we were moving quick to get in a site so I may have missed hookups).

At this time of year, mid-week we would have been the only campers in either park.

Limited hookup sites here but there were a few, I imagine during peak periods they may be tough to get. The driveway angles were wrong on some sites so backing in would have been a bit difficult on those. Some sites weren't very level, full hookup sites seemed to be the most level as all or most had cement pads.

Restrooms were very clean, we didn't try showers so can't speak to those.

“Great place to explore from”

Reviewed 2/11/2018

Overall Rating

We decided to reserve a site with full hook-ups for the weekend, which we normally don’t do. There are only three full hook-up sites available in the campground (1, 2, and 26) but only two of them are available, as site number 2 is the camp host site.

Site 26 was one of the best in the campground because of the size. The State Park states that the sites will accommodate trailers less than 24 feet in length, but it is pretty tight and might be difficult with a 24 foot trailer.

Pros: The campground is just down the street from downtown Idyllwild, which is a great place to walk around and explore. There are tons of gift shops, coffee shops, and boutique stores to check out, as well as really good restaurants and brew houses. The campground has really clean token operated showers ($1 per token=5 minutes of hot shower) and bathrooms.

Cons: Being so close to the town means there is some road noise from the nearby highway that runs through Idyllwild.

Overall, I would definitely recommend the campground as a good place to explore from.
