Everything is better in California! At least that's what we believe at Idyllwild RV Campground. Located in the San Jacinto Mountains, Idyllwild’s grounds offer panoramic mountain views tucked away from the Southern California heat.

For our more active guests, a landscape of pine-covered mountains offers the perfect terrain for hiking in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter. Other activities include fishing in our pond or enjoying the sunshine at the swimming and wading pools. Come explore our RV campground in California. Catering to both RV campers and those without RVs, Idyllwild RV Campground offers rustic tent camping as well as cabin rentals. Our attentive staff looks forward to making your stay at Idyllwild RV Campground one to remember.
