Return to Lake Perris Home


The Lake Perris Luiseño Campground has both RV hook-up sites and non-hook up Tent/Trailer sites. Every site has a picnic table and a fire ring with a grill. There are shade trees, however it can get very hot in the summer and extra shade canopies are highly recommended. Water and restrooms with free hot showers are nearby and are designated to accommodate wheelchairs.

Campers who visit during the off-season (December 1st- February 28th) will be treated to an uncrowded park, beautiful weather, and reduced camping rates.

Due to the busy summer season, reservations are highly recommended for weekends and holidays in the summer.

The handicap discount can be applied to any campsite.

A Disabled Discount pass is required to receive a discount on camping. It is the pass holder's responsibility to request the discount when making reservations. Make sure you receive your discount when your reservation is confirmed. No refund will be made on discounts not received.

Only the campsite occupied by the pass holder is subject to the discount. Second campsites reserved by the pass holder will be charged full price.

Upon arrival to the park you must present your reservation, a driver's license (or other suitable proof of identification), and the Disabled Discount pass. Any camper presenting a reservation without a pass will pay the difference on full price fees.


Checking in:

You may check into your campsite at any time after 2 p.m. on your reservation start date. Early check-in may be available (but is not guaranteed) during winter months.

If you arranged for a discount when you made your reservation, proof of eligibility must be shown at check in.

Camping at Lake Perris is site specific. Please know your campsite number and the name the reservation was made under.

If you arrive after the campground check-in kiosk has already closed, continue to your campsite and register at the campground by 10:00 a.m. the next morning. If you do not have reservations and arrive after the campground has closed, read the board that lists which sites are unavailable, choose an available site, and pay for your site by 10:00 the next morning.

Check Out is 12:00 p.m. (noon) on your departure date. Please leave the campsite in good condition. The camper who follows you will appreciate it.

Cancelation and No-Shows:

All cancelations, site changes, and no-shows are subject to Reserve America’s cancelation policy.

A reservation is considered a "no-show" when you have not arrived by 12:00 noon on the second day of your reservation. For example, if you have reserved Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday night, and you have not checked in by 12:00 noon on Saturday, your site will be considered canceled. The site is then available to be sold on a first-come first-serve basis and the reservation is subject to Reserve America’s cancellation policy.
