Glen Ivy RV Park offered Sash and I a place to set up our RV at a cheap price, in an area within driving distance to Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, and the rest of South West Riverside County. We stayed here in January 2018.
Much of the RV Parks in the area are priced at $50.00 to $75.00 a night. But at Glen Ivy RV Park, their daily rate is $35.00, however they’ll give it to you for $17.50 if you’re a Passport America member, for a limit of 10 days. They’ll actually sign you up for Passport America in their office.
Much of the park is residential. That is, these are permanent residents. There’s a small “island” in the middle of the park set aside for daily and weekly guests. There are lots of kids who live in this park, and each morning there is a school bus that picks them up and drops them off at the entrance every day.
Many of the trailers parked here have their potted plants put out, decorations, walkways, and everything else you’d expect to see in a regular mobile home park, except these are travel trailers and 5th wheels. Most of the rigs parked here look 20+ years old.
The roads throughout Glen Ivy RV Park are narrow and tight. Backing your trailer into a space can be difficult due to the 90 degree angle approach and how narrow the roads are. It took me several attempts to get our toy hauler into our assigned space.
The spaces themselves are tight. Your neighbor will be right on you.
Electric, Water and Sewer
Electricity is limited to 30 amps. Water pressure at each space seemed great. Sewer at each space seemed a non-issue.
The staff was very friendly. They were actually very professional, and responsive to your needs.
Security is tight, however. There is a guard station at the entrance. You will be required to show your parking pass each time to get in. In fact, on your first day, you will be required to show proof of insurance on all vehicles, and current registration on all vehicles. You will also be required to show current licensing and shot records of every dog, cat, or other animal you bring in. And they definitely enforce this, because they didn’t let me off the hook.
Glen Ivy Hot Springs
Glen Ivy Hot Springs is located right next door to the RV Park. They are NOT affiliated with one another. You don’t get free access to the hot springs by staying at the RV park, or vice versa. There is no shuttle from the RV park to the hot springs that I could see.
How Nice of an RV Park is this?
The scenery is nice. It looks like a campground, actually. The entire place is covered with old growth oak trees and sits at the base of the Santa Ana Mountain Range. There are plenty of song birds to listen to and hummingbirds will visit you.
However, it’s an unsightly park too. With 90-95% of the park filled with permanent residents who enjoy low monthly rates of $500.00, in an area of Southern California where you can easily pay $1,200.00 a month or more, you’re staying among low-income families living in old, unsightly trailers.
But the bottom line is if you want to stay at an RV Park along the I-15 in Riverside County, I doubt you will find lower rates anywhere else.
Verizon 4G came in excellent here. I didn’t need to put up our 4G antenna.
Would I Stay Here Again?
Glen Ivy RV Park is a scenic park, and I do like the low daily rates with the Passport America discount, but I really hated the narrow roads and the difficulty in getting my trailer backed in. It may be better if we were in a Class A, B, or C type of RV, where we could just drive in and drive out, but maneuvering a trailer of 28 feet or more in such a tight area was not fun.
