The ValleyView area is really special spot on The Preserve at Temecula Creek.  There are two sites that both give you a lot of space to spread out and include a tent/car/camper clearing up top with views directly into the mountains along with tent clearings set far back into the small valley.  Site 1 backs right up to Cleveland National Forest for additional exploration, and has a very private tent area surrounded by trees for sun and wind protection.  Site 2 has a large tent area set way back along a hill for wind protection & the option to climb the hill for a birds eye view.  Site two is also quite convenient to wander over to the guest hangout area with dog run, camp grills, camp toilet and sun shade.

**Returning Guests** We updated our site names on 2/16/21 to make it easier for guests going forward.  The old "ValleyView" is now MountainView 1.  This listing is for what was previously known as DesertView & GeoLodge, which are now ValleyView 1 & 2 respectively.  We understand this can be confusing for a short while.  Sorry!

The Preserve has multiple Guest Hangout areas with shared amenities, including fire pits, hammock, picnic tables, sun shade, dog pen & gazebo, food prep stations and a camp toilet with privacy tent. Garbage/Camp Toilet bags are restocked weekly in the Camp Kit at each site.

My time at the preserve was great! My 3 buddies and I stayed in tents at the Valley View Spot and we had plenty of room for our tents and equipment. Bob communicated with me very well in regards to directions and camp amenities. We would definitely stay here again sometime.

Sites are even more built out than the first stay and the Camp Kitchen is great for hanging out in some shade and sitting around the large picnic table with fire bowl in the middle. Bob has done a lot of work up there. My only suggestion is to read the hosts arrival instructions carefully. DO NOT follow google maps into the Rancho California RV resort. Stay straight into the dirt road before curving into the RV resort. There was another other sets of campers at MountianView and we were spread out quite a bit and could have moved very far back into the site if we wanted additional seclusion. These sites are more like private plots of land you can camp in a few different spots. We had tents but another couple had a pop up camper and Bob the host came by with a huge teardrop camper. I’d be nervous driving a camper up the dirt road but they seemed to have made it up just fine.

This is an absolutely beautiful campsite. Bob has turned this stunning property into a shared campground, currently with four other sites, all of which have lovely corresponding names to their views. Each site has a hidden Easter egg within, this one with a private bench overlooking an insane view of the valley below. The sunset will be epic on a clear day. The road is admittedly rough, although quite doable in almost any car. A Honda Fit, an Audi sedan, a Chevy Volt, and a 25’ and a 30’ RV all made it in one piece, albeit on a careful, slow roll both up and down. My only critique of the space, was that areas in which to put a tent were admittedly sparse. We toured every site on the campground as we were the only ones there our first night, and only a few spaces were level enough for an even tent sleep. Most of which existed in what I now realize is probably common ground near the shared fire pits. The spaces that look to have been carved out for site specific tent spaces were wildly unlevel. I’m hoping there are plans to even out some more ground so that tent sleepers don’t have to search, or deal with midnight sliding. But I have a lot of faith in Bob, who we had the pleasure of meeting. Most of all, well done, dude. You’ve created a tiny heaven of outdoor space for an optimal escape. I’d definitely recommend this very private, very quiet spot!

Loved this spot and our host Bob! He was so helpful, so responsive. I honestly don’t think I’ve had a better host. So grateful for all the energy he put in to make our weekend great.

My friends and I had such a great time! I recommend getting both valley view and Mountain View sites. They have a common area between them with a fire pit and covered table. Worked out great for us. Also recommend renting one of the portable toilets. Super convenient. Will be back many times after this!

Bob was great, the site was BEAUTIFUL and the road is an amazing hike up into the canyons. We took our 25 foot Winnebago View up and it was a little hairy but we made it. There’s no way anything longer is making it up there though and if you don’t have previous experience with off roading, I wouldn’t suggest taking anything longer than the recommended 23 footer. They ain’t lie’n!!

The Preserve was ever better than I expected! The views were incredible and at each camp there was at least one bench/swing to sit on and sip coffee in the morning or watch the sunset in the evening. I appreciated the little touches like the solar lights on all the signs as well as lights along all the paths (my boyfriend and I showed up at night so it was even more appreciated). I highly recommend watching the videos before you go to get an idea of the hikes/off roading trails around the area. We had the most spectacular sunset at the top of the mountain and wouldn’t have known we could drive up there unless we watched the video. We will definitely be making The Preserve and bringing friends to share in the experience next time!

Great spot. We brought our BMW X3 and 20’ trailer and did fine along the road going in and just took it slow. Cars can totally make it up as well - we saw a 3 Series and a Scion up there. I think 20’ trailer is probably the perfect size or smaller like a pop-up.

My daughter liked the trampoline and geopod hammock. Be ready for amazing views of the stars with little no light pollution.
