What I Like About Rancho Jurupa Park

The grounds are beautiful and it’s great to take a walk around the lake or go fishing if you like.

There are plenty of activities so there’s something for everyone. There’s also access to the Santa Ana River trail for hiking and mountain biking.


When we went, it was pretty windy and because it’s near an open field, a lot of dust and debris was flying around so it’s something to be aware of depending on the weather.

Spots are pretty close together.

Final Thoughts on Rancho Jurupa campground
