Ready for a wildlife and adventure filled camping weekend? Lake Perris camping has 167 sites for tent camping and 264 paved RV sites (which have water, electricity, and sink water hookups). There is one hike and bike campsite located by the horseshoe pit, and there are 7 primitive horse camps. The sites are all equipped with a table, fire ring with a grill, and access to piped water. Most plants and animals at Lake Perris are well adapted to the hot, dry environment, so make sure you’re prepared as well. It can get quite warm in the summer and there isn’t too much tree coverage – so bring a canopy if you have one! Or just stay in the lake the whole time… that’s fine too.
