My family had a very lovely time here; I simply adore campground s that are very family friendly! There is so much to do and see here for any age it’s amazing! The staff was so nice and thoughtful. It was nice to see people go above and beyond what they are supposed to. The park was really beautiful and had a very nice design. The sites were large and gave us more than enough room for our big rig. The amenities were nice as it gave us more than the necessities. The facilities were constantly cleaned, as was the rest of the park. My kids keep asking when we are going back which is more than helped make up my mind about this place. Two thumbs up! - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group

Lake Piru was absolutely beautiful! Perfect family spot! Bathrooms were clean and plenty of trees for shading. We had so much kayaking on the lake and fishing. My daughter caught the largest fish I have seen in a long time seeing that smile on her face made it that much better. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
