Hook-up and RV Camping

The RV hook-up sites at Lake Perris have water, grey water, and electrical hook-ups. Unfortunately, there are no black-water sewer hook-ups. There is an automated dump station located at the campground entrance. 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.

Dump Station: Sani-Star  

The service is available for campers, day-use or transient visitors for $10 per use.
The price per campsite does not include the use of a dump station.

Beginning April 1, 2018, California State Parks is partnering with Sani-Star, a provider of self-pay stations for sewage dumps, to secure the dump station and collect fees for use.
Sani-Star accepts credit and debit cards right at the dump station.

This Sani-Star partnership and new fee collection system will allow State Parks to control the sanitary dump station and prevent illegal use, in order to help us protect the environment. This partnership will assist State Parks in the recovery of rising fees from the sanitary and water districts and offset maintenance costs. This pay per use system allows us to continue with our low camping fees without assessing a dump fee applied to all campers, only those using the dump facilities will be affected.

Electrical Hookup: Most hook-up sites have 30 amp electrical hook-ups. 50 amp hook-ups are found at sites 105, 118, 131, 209, 229, 237, 262, 270, and 200. Site 112 is a 50 amp handicap access site. An adapter is required for the electrical hook-up if the RV does not run 50 amps.

Tents: Tents are allowed in all of our RV hook-up sites!

People: Each site can accommodate up to 8 people, of any age.

Vehicles: Although your site may hold 3 vehicles, your reservation only covers 1 vehicle. Extra vehicles must pay use fees on arrival. 3 license plates are allowed at each unit (for example; 2 cars and 1 boat trailer). The parking is three spaces side-by-side 31’ in length each, and back-in only. All vehicles must fit on the parking pad and not hang into the road way. There is no off road or extra parking. There are no pick-ups and drop-offs. Every vehicle entering the park must pay use fees.

Length of Stay: Maximum stay is 30 nights in a calendar year. Lake Perris SRA limits the number of consecutive nights a camper can stay in peak season (June 1st through November 30th) to 15 nights. Once this consecutive night limit has been reached, the camper must vacate the campground and no one in the party may return to camp in that same park for 48 hours.

Reservations: Due to the busy summer season, reservations are highly recommended for summer weekends and summer holidays. The campsites at Lake Perris are Site Specific. This means that when you make a reservation, you are reserving a specific site number. Site changes are not likely to be available in the summer, and will not be done during holiday weekends. 


On arrival, you will pay full use fees for your watercraft for each day that the watercraft is in the park. (example: If you check in on Saturday afternoon and are checking out on Monday, you need to pay launch fees for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.) The boat fee is $10.00 each watercraft per day. 

Sail boats, kayaks, canoes, and other hand launch vessels do not need to pay fees if they do not use the boat launch.

If you are going to bring watercraft, please visit our boating information page for more information on boating at Lake Perris.
