I didn't actually camp during my visit. I live close by and recently drove thru the park to see if there had been any improvements since the last time I did actually camp there, which was about 3 years ago. NOPE! NO improvements! To say this is our state park is an embarrassment to our part of the state. The RV sites are still so small with trees making it hard or impossible for large rigs to get around easily in the two camping areas. The grass was so over grown, pot holes in the roads and camp sites, the same old orange plastic construction fence, that has been there for so many years I've lost count. It's around the location where a bathhouse once stood. Their idea of maintenance is to go crazy spraying everywhere with weed killer leaving the grass so long. It was awful and depressing. I don't understand why other LA state parks are so neat and well maintained and this park's camping areas basically look abandoned. I love to camp but this is not my idea of a relaxing beautiful campground. It's sad because I grew up camping here in the 60's. Also, the last time I was there, the park ranger was so rude and totally out of control. Not sure if he is still working there of not.
