Campground Review - Oak Park

We have discovered that County Parks in the southern California area may be the best and cheapest route to go when RVing fulltime. State Parks around here are great but most of them have very little in the way of hook-ups. We stayed in Simi Valley to visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. We found a nice, quiet little Ventura County park called Oak Park.

Nearby attractions - 8 - Besides the Reagan site, there are tons of "day trips" nearby.

Staff - N/A - Never saw a soul - it was President's Day.

Natural surroundings - 8 - Trees, wooded areas and very close to a train track that runs from 7 am to 11 pm.

Value - 8 - We paid $26 a night for partial hook-ups, back-in site. You have to pay extra to use their dump site.

Bathrooms - 4 - The men's was flooded, but the women's was Ok. No showers and no soap at the sinks.

Roominess - 9 - The sites were decent sized and there was only to other RVs in the park. I am sure it much more crowded during the spring-fall months.

Facility fun - 6 - Two playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts.

Cleanliness - 7 - They have kept the park-up, but it does not wow you.

Facility usefulness - 4 - Dump station, pay station. Grill and picnic table at each site.

Overall - 7 - Our kids met some other kids staying there, and they had a nice time playing outside. These parks offer much more room to run than the RV parks that cram you in like a parking lot.
