Family and Group Camping

Lake Perris has both family sized and larger group sized overnight campgrounds, horse camp facilities, and large group picnic areas. Most areas have shade trees, however it can get very hot in the summer and extra shade canopies are highly recommended. Campers who visit during the off-season (December 1st-February 28th) will be treated to an uncrowded park, beautiful weather, and reduced camping rates.

Site information, prices, and reservation information can be found by following the appropriate link below.

Checking Into Your Site

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.

Check the Group Camping and Group Picnicking pages for details on check-in procedures.

Cancellations, Early Check-out, and No Shows

Cancellation: Cancellations and changes are made through ReserveCalifornia or by contacting 1-800-444-7275 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM PST M-F.  

Early Check-Out: If you have to permanently leave the park earlier than expected, be sure to check out at the Campground Kiosk. If we are informed of your permanent early departure, and collect your vehicle campground tags, then we can process your early check-out and you may be entitled to a refund for the days you did not use. You will still be responsible for the same fees as a late cancellation.

No-Shows: 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 the cancellation policy.
