“Beautiful park, campsites maybe fit for tents or vans”

Reviewed May 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We’re camping nearby at Mountain Valley RV park, so we thought we’d stop by and check this place out!

The good: this is a beautiful wooded county park above the town of Tehachapi. If you’re a tent camper, this might be a cool place to camp. If you’re a van or teardrop camper, youve got a shot at a good experience.

The rest:
If you camp in anything bigger than a van or a teardrop, go elsewhere.
The road up to the park is steep, narrow and winding. Its clear that small rockfalls and slides are common along sections of this access road. Once you enter the park, it only gets worse. Steeper. Narrower. Tighter turns.

Campsites are clustered in small groups as you work your way through the park. I doubt that more than one site in the whole place could fit anything larger than a van or a teardrop trailer. None of the sites even approximate level.

Most toilets are composting, though above the Tehachapi Mountain trailhead we did find a couple of flush toilets inside what looks like a run-down shed and some old tired indoor showers in a nearby building that might work.

Water faucets are scattered about the campground in a fairly random way.
