This review will be a little different than the rest since we have lived here in the park for a few months now. Usually I’ll start a review when we move in, keep updating it throughout our stay, and wrap it up when we move out.

Review of Glen Ivy RV Park

When we first moved it, it was both out of necessity and desire. The RV park isn’t high class at all, but it’s clean, and the staff is uber friendly. The residents are all super friendly too! As with any place with rent for less than $500 a month, there are a few people you might not want to walk past in the dark of night, but that is just me being insecure. Everyone I’ve spoken to has been friendly.

They have 2 laundry machines at every bathroom area. There are showers which looked clean, but we haven’t used them yet. Water, and electric are included. Internet is limited if you plan on being here long term, the only service I believe they offer is AT&T. I don’t want to use AT&T internet because they impose a monthly bandwidth cap, and if you don’t sign a 12 month contract, it’s like $53 for average quality internet… Don’t even get me started on the monopoly that is internet service here in the USA…


Buying “Shares” at Glen Ivy RV Park

Rent for month to month visitors is $450, which includes electricity and water. If you have a dog, it’s $30 extra per dog. I just called the office to ask the limit of time that you can stay in one spot if you don’t own shares, and the answer was basically “you can stay as long as you want until a share owner wants that spot“.

What this means is that you can usually stay a very long time without moving. I saw someone here for a few months recently who was just passing thought, and stayed in one spot.

The advantages of owning a share is rent and pet rent! Each share you own means you only pay $125 for water/electric and $65 per share. When we moved in to Glen Ivy late October, we made a very good decision to buy one share. Each share is good for 81 days per calendar year. This means that since we moved in with less than 81 days remaining in 2012, we only paid $190 for rent in the months of November, December, January, February, and part of March! This was due to the 81 days resetting at new years. We purchased our initial share for $500.

$500 + ($190 x 4) = $1,260 total payed for 4.5 months.
$1,260 / 4.5 = $280 per month. This is including a dog.

At the end of March, we purchased two more shares for only $200 each. Any share below $500 is a good price, we lucked out with our 2 shares. We could probably turn a profit on these when we decide to sell them.

Each share costs $65 per month, regardless if you’re using its’s days or not… If you own a share, you pay $65 per month per share. We sold off our first share as soon as it’s days were up. If we had kept it until next year, we would have paid $65 per month for 9 months. This means it would have cost us $585 just to hold on to that share. It’s cheaper to sell it, and buy a new one when needed.

If you’re not sure how long you’ll be here, or even if you plan on being here for years, buying shares one at a time is smarter. This way you aren’t paying $65 per month on 5 shares.

There are other perks to owning shares, such as a private pool for members, a storage locker, and some other things, but we never use those things. Maybe this summer we’ll review the pools and post back. For now, here is an image of the pool area (click the image to enlarge it).

The Staff

The staff is all amazingly friendly, and welcoming. Each one makes me smile when I see them. However, the most friendly staff can’t always make up for a poorly ran business. There are frequent stories of the office trying to make someone pay twice, because the office can’t find a record of payment. Always save your receipts. I have had a few issues myself, such as the mailbox fiasco.

They have tried to have me pay $450 over my standard bill before because the lady working the computer didn’t know that the $450 should have came off automatically.

Personal Experiences at Glen Ivy RV Park

January 4, 2013

We have been here just over 2 months. Our neighbors are nice, one of them actually helped me fix my brakes on the Prius one day when I mucked up the job myself. The office staff knows my name, and I know theirs, and I’m always greeted with a smile. We purchased a “share” so we are part owners now. This allows us 81 days per year rent free. There are still other fees, but it all evens out to the $500 range monthly. The advantage here is that you can leave your RV in one spot, and not move it. There are other perks, but the discounted rate, and long term spot made it a good choice for us.

January 20, 2013

Still enjoying it here! I must say again though that the office clerical staff has a hard time keeping track of things and getting things done here. There are a few examples that stand out in my mind right now. First, we bought a “share”back in early november, shortly after we moved in. This share gives us rent for $190 per month (no dog rent) rather than $450 (+ $30 for our dog). So after the share was transfered legaly into our name, it took the office about a month to get it entered in to their system. That means that my rent for December had to come in late, since I wasn’t in the system yet. 

The Mailbox Fiasco

I also asked for a mailbox back in November, then a few times in December, then a couple times in January, until I finally had the office lady (name withheld because I don’t want anyone to lose their job over my reviews) get me a mailbox. She went and grabbed me a key from the back for a mailbox. It was the larger mailbox which runs $8 per month instead of the standard size at $4 per month. Then, not a week later, I had a small envelope arrive for me, and the office staff called me to let me know. I asked them to just put it in my mailbox, but they didn’t know I had one and couldn’t find the record. I explained what had happened, and they put it in my box.

March 19, 2013

Glen Ivy RV Park recently installed a new playground / swing set combo. It’s pretty neat, and Spirit loves it! Also they have introduced Bingo night which they are promoting vigorously. They have 3-4 billboards on the main street leading up to the park, signs in the park, and handed out fliers at the gate.

Glen Ivy RV Park has also hired a few new staff members, which I hope helps with fix the current clerical errors. I spoke with a gentleman who has lived here for over 5 years! He had 10 shares in the park, and is selling them all (we bought 2 of them). He cites his main reason for moving out of the park being the staff in the office. The park has gone downhill since the new owner John has stepped in. I haven’t had a chance to speak with John, and I’m fairly new here, so I can not comment on the changes.

We purchased two more shares, which gives us through the end of August. Our rent here is now $238 per month for three shares, plus a large mail box ($8 per month).

I’ve become less content with the people here though. I’ve had some encounters with a few drug addicts looking for their fix, or asking if they could wash my trailer (?!?! Really?). There is someone right near us who has been using a power saw between the hours of 9 pm and 10 pm the last few nights. I have no problem with people who use drugs (personal freedoms), but I do have a problem with my life being disrupted by their drug habits. Being confronted by a lady looking for “Bob” the other day was pretty nerve racking. The conversation went something like this:

Her: Are you Bob?
Me: No.
Her: You’re not Bob?
Me: Nope. Sorry.
Her: Do you know where Bob is?
Me: I don’t know Bob.
Her: You don’t? Is your dogs name Max?
Me: No.
Her: What’s your dogs name?
Me: It’s not Max.
Her: What is it though?
Me: Not Max.
Her: Why won’t you tell me your dogs name?
Me: We just moved in, and I’ve heard stories of a lot of bad things going on around here, and we’re not quite comfortable with people knowing our dogs name yet.
Her: Oh, Ok…

Then she proceeded to go look for Bob. This may not seem like a weird conversation, but she wasn’t in a sound state of mind, she was fidgety and not quite calm.

The price here is great, it’s about 25 miles from my job, and 30-40 minutes from Orange County. Last weekend we went to the beach for a quick day trip. So far, I’d come back for sure for a shorter stay, but long term, I’d be weary. I’d have to make sure we got a spot with great neighbors (as we have now, and I’ll release our spot number once we move out).

April 19, 2013

They have been updating many things around the park, and even the street leading up to the park. They have re-slurried the pavement, meaning putting a fresh black layer on top. This really made things look nicer, and the streets smoother!

Note: There are rumors of them getting quotes to install wifi at all campsites. The fee for this should be $15 per month. This would be awesome if it came true, as now the only internet provider is AT&T and AT&T sucks. This doesn’t appear to be coming any time soon. They would have to install towers throughout the park, and from what I’ve heard, they won’t do that right away. For now you must BYOI (Bring Your Own Internet) it seems. They used to have AT&T listed as a service you could get wired to your campsite, but they recently took it off the list. I’m not sure if it’s still available.

About Branndon

I love to do websites and general web work. I also love to help and share my advice, so if you have any questions that you think I can help with, shoot me a message.


  1. Hi I just found your website when we were looking into Glen Ivy Rv park. Are you guys still there? We have two years old daughter and are planning to move there within couple of month..I like your website!:)

  2. Hi I stumbled across your site and love it! I just moved into Glen Ivy and am planning on staying 6 months. I think I picked the wrong section LOL Can you give me pointers on sections to avoid or move to? I am a single 40 something empty nester that likes things quiet.

    • Branndon

      Hi! I can help for sure, there are a couple spots opened up near 38. Where are you now? Do you have any shares at the park? Thanks for commenting, I look forward to saying Hi! Are you going to the luau this month?

      • I am in the back (will tell you in a PM) but want to be closer to the front. My trailer is 35′ including the tongue so i need a deep spot. I do not have any shares because I am not sure how they work but would love to pick your brain on that one. I look forward to saying Hi too.

        • Branndon

          Great! You have my email address now since I emailed you once today already. Just reply to that and we’ll be in touch. I can explain shares in person, no problem.

  3. samie christensen

    Hello, We just moved into the park and came across your blog. Way cool. I would love to meet you guys if your still around.

  4. Samie Christensen

    This is great news!! We spent the 4th at sea world, our daughter loves it. We should all get together on Monday. Maybe go swimming or go for a walk to the old trees. Can you email me?

  5. staff is friendly if and when they like you. The non profit organization is new and is undoubtedly placed to help protect them from several Civil Suits that are about to be launched. They have drug dealers in their park and when this was brought up to the Manager John, his remark was “we have known about this for years, but she pays her rent.” dont you feel Spirit is protected now? When the head of security Lt Joe was notified of someone selling marijuana out of his trailer, his response was, “its only pot.” Wow. They embezzle shares from owners that are late on their rent by not accepting full payment unless they release their shares back to them. This is because it is believed that the rock quarry will buy their property. As a non profit, they cant make a profit off their park or possessions so dont they have to give those shares away?
    The corruption and lack of honesty and integrity at this park, the extortion, theft by security and blatant refusal to deal with people they know are doing illegal things is a deliberate indifference no one should have to live with. CROOKS, ALL OF THEM. Dont pay rent on time? they tow your rv outside the park which is illegal. they need to be stopped and my lawsuits will be served over the next two weeks and the District Attorney is reviewing criminal allegations against management.

    • Brianne

      Hi John,

      We’re already aware of many of the things you’ve mentioned and glad you brought them up, as we’re still here we don’t want to “rock the boat.” Thankfully we’re in a relatively safe portion of the park for Spirit and have taken our own precautions for her safety, especially in choosing to avoid certain sections altogether where the known dealers are located. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait and see along with everyone else, and don’t plan to be here for (hopefully) much longer.

      Good luck with everything you said, hopefully it will make the park better for all the long-time residents and temporary campers.

  6. Greetings, I am a traveling Respiratory Therapist and pondering on a 13 week stay there at the park. Could you private email me an update on park drama, as I want to avoid all together if possible. Or, are there other parks in the area that you would recommend?

    Thanks in advance…


    • Branndon

      The drama has died down. It’s a good place to stay, and 13 weeks should be just fine. As far as where to stay… on this map avoide the tan areas on the bottom right, and if possible, find a camp site numbered lower than 100, these seem to be the quieter and nicer spots.

      • Good call on your safe site areas. You hit it perfectly. I appreciate you honesty as I didn’t think you would allow my previous post. There are good thins here as well as many bad. People need to know all angles. If we can now just get rid of the corrupt security lieutenant. His security crew and sergeants have good work ethics and genuinely care for the park and it tenants. Unfortunately there efforts are under minded by the lieutenant that is defiantly in bed with the recently fired manager. Just check their business records

  7. Hi Branndon,
    Great blog! We too are moving into Full Timing in an RV with our family from OC. Quick question… we are a family with children. We’ll likely move in for 6-12 weeks June 1. Can you recommend spots that are safe and kid friendly? We’re new to full timing and the thought of being around unsavory characters sort of horrifies me. I don’t need it quiet as we have little ones so being around other families is fine, but screaming parties and drug use would not be anything we want be around. Thanks for any suggestions.

    • Branndon

      On this map Steer clear of the light brown areas on the bottom right of the map. That’s the most run down and unsightly areas. The green part is nice, the yellow part is nice, the turquoise part seems to have nice people, but there is a bar (near 133) which may get loud. I know of some families with kids near 331 / 58 area, and the best place for kids to play is right near 104 (grass area for playing) and 155 (play ground).

  8. So we are under new management… Took less than 5 minutes for them to lie to my face…
    a few years back, the current office managers sister embezzled over 250,000 from the park. mom works there too. They decided not to prosecute the thief, but asses the shareholders two 300.00 assessments to pay for the stolen money that if they prosecuted the thief would have gotten back through victims fund.
    what they did was made owners pay an additional 600.00 and if they didn’t pay they wouldn’t accept there rent and then made them sign over their shares to let them stay. coercion, extortion comes to mind. All the while they didnt change over the deeds so they left these victims to be victimized more by having to pay property taxes on the shares. every incident of theft in that park has the same family attached to it and they are still there as maintenance supervisor, office manager, oh and the embezzler now spends her days as the pools whale. she isnt even a resident, was blackballed from park, but she can steal again and no one liable for her actions. THIS PLACE IS SAFE FOR NO ONE AND THE OFFICE IS INVOLVED

  9. We just moved here after reading your posts. So far we have loved it! Your recommendations on where to stay are spot on. I just am wondering what do you do with your little one during the day? The “park” is not shaded but he needs a place to run without getting too hot.

    • Branndon

      There isn’t really much to do during these hot days but stay inside :( There is a nice, large park near by that has a water play area which I’m sure he’d love. It’s near the Indian Truck Trail exit. Park location: it has tons of grass, a skateboarding area, kid playset, and a dog park too.

      Saturday nights at Dos Lagos now, they have concerts outside near the trader joes parking lot, we are probably going tonight, or next week. :)


    My name is Nicole and I currently stay at the Glen Ivy Rv Park. I have been here for 8 months and have enjoy it until recently. My family and I do not converse nor do we interact with other campers or permanent residents here but our neighbors. We have had no problems with anybody within the park til about 3 weeks ago. A guy was recently released from federal prison and was/is abusing drugs in side the park, this man lives with his father inside the park. Both men had assaulted my 16 year old son inside of the park. My husband and I were able to stop the physical altercation. Now we are being kicked out of the park because this drug abuser’s father knows the time share owners/ owners association. I believe that it is unfair that these owner association can just make a decision on someone’s life without speaking to all the parties involve and just go based on their friends statement. I am not making assumptions at all, this is what was told to me by the manger.
    We have 5th wheel that we purchased while living in the rv park, have no way of pulling it or transporting it. Our whole life has been once again disrupted. Can you please give me positive feedback?
    Thank you

    • Branndon

      Wow Nicole! That’s horrible, but I hate to say it, it sounds like something that could happen here. I mean the office staff acting the way they are, not the altercation. I’ve never seen anything violent or scary like that. I’m sorry that you’re being kicked out. There are people whom will move your trailer for you, they advertise on the bulletin boards often.

      There are many RV parks in Southern California, but not many in this area. The site may help you find a local RV park to move to.

      Do you have to sell any shares before you move out? I’m in the market for 2 shares, but was planning on waiting a couple weeks before buying.

  11. Could someone tell me please if there are families in need in this park? Are children needing medical assistance, food and such? it was brought to my attention that some families could use some help. I would like to try to help with perhaps some outreach programs through some local churches?

    Thank you.

    • Branndon

      I can’t really say which families are in need the most. There is a bulletin board here that all members can read, and I see a lot actually reading it. Maybe post a note on the board (you can enter free) seeking out those in need. You may get the responses you’re after :)

  12. I have 4 little children
    would this be a good place to move for more than 6 months

    • Branndon

      It all depends on your life style. There isn’t much for kids to do here. There is a playground area, grass field (small), basketball court, and pool. It may sound like a lot, but kids get over it quickly. There are many kids running around here unsupervised, and if you’re OK with letting your kids roam, then they might like that. I don’t think there is a lot to hold a kids interest, and there’s almost nothing within walking distance for young kids to do. Toms Farms is about a mile walk,but most of it is on unpaved dirt sidewalks.

  14. We stayed out at the park over the weekend and although our neighbors were nice, and living in a tent, we actually saw drug use (as in a crack pipe being openly used) and deals going on left and right. There were 3 different people strung out walking through the streets and children left completely unsupervised..It would appear that this place is a drop off for Last resort housing for people coming out of jail.

    I will never stay here again and would highly recommend that if you value your children and don’t want them seeing inappropriate things being done, that you steer cleer of this place.

    If you value your children and your

    • Branndon

      While I agree that there are drug users, and unsupervised children here, things are improving with the new management. I would hate to see someone using a crack pipe out in the open, and if my children saw it, I would simply use it as an education of what not to do. The drug users here don’t cause us too many problems. Lately it’s been the drinkers, staying up late and being noisy.

      There are many low class residents, but for those of us who stay inside most days, and when we do leave, we generally leave the park, it’s not a major issue. In the 2+ years that we have lived here, we have not had any negative issues due to the nature of the residents other than the occasional shady character walking around. No violence, theft, or property damage to our things. Now I have heard stories from others about this type of behaviour, but we haven’t seen it ourselves.

  15. Hi I just found your site, My husband and I where thinking of perhaps moving into glen ivy, He will be working out of the rig, so how is the internet and tv service ? you like it?

    He wants to try this full timing thing, I am less happy to try it but whatever makes him happy I guess, I have one other question have you ever heard of amazon mechanical turk? am doing that I (and dog grooming lol) I was hoping to see if there where others out there, full timing and turking.

    Thanks for the help wonderful blog, I might see you over there.

    • Branndon

      Hello Sheryl. There is no “standard” internet, you’d have to get ATT and I’m not sure how they are here. We also don’t watch TV, so I can’t comment on that either :(

      Fulltiming is great for some, and terrible for others. If you get outside enough, I think you’ll like it. If you get stuck inside daily, you can go crazy (same as in a house I suppose). I’m not doing the turk thing, as I’m usually on the hiring end of people to do small web coding tasks from :)

  16. Branndon, i have to ask. Are you getting paid by the management or association when you shluff of open drug usage and drunks disrupting tenants as use it as a teaching tool. Are you serious? Not to mention that the park for years has been evicting people for years illegally. Yes, displacing families. What about when a company tells them certain treed need removal because are dead or infested and will fall. Parks says to expensive and ignores the warnings. Trees fall crushing peoples RV’s and cars and management lies and sz not insured. They rip of their own residents. Have you ever read anything on the bulletin board you refer to? I hope your irresponsible replies telling families to “come on down the drunks and drug addicts are not bad” I surprised you don’t mention that theft is .05% lower than in D.C. and make that a point too. Shame on you

    • Branndon


      I feel a bit attacked by your comment, but I’ll do you the courtesy of a reply.

      Of course I’m not getting paid in any way for what I wrote. Maybe you and I just view the world differently and our priorities and complaints in life differ.

      The park has done a TON of illegal activities, and if you’re still a tenant here, you probably got the same letter we did listing all of the illegal book keeping, etc. What I can say is that management changes hands often, and holding the past board of directors or management accountable should be done. The current management needs to clean up and fix all of these issues. I have reached out to them for a follow up to this article, but have yet to hear back.

      You obviously have strong opinions that are inline with mine, but we differ in the fact of tolerance. I tolerate the things here that I can tolerate, and inform the public so that they can make their own decisions. Yes, if someone reads that there is open drug use in parts of the park here, yet they come anyway, that’s their own sovereign decision, and who am I to tell them to stay far away? If you don’t like a business, shop elsewhere, vote with your dollars, don’t just go online and question others who choose to give them your dollars.

      While I do believe drug use is ones individual decision (beer, pills, tobacco all fall into this category), I do not think that others should be affected negatively from those choices, or something needs to be changed.

      If you wish to continue a civil discussion, we can, but I believe I’ve made my stance clear, just as I do as a parent: Explain the pro’s and con’s and allow the other party to make their own informed decisions.

  17. Brandon and Brianne, I have left Glen Ivy Resorts as well as California. My previous comments pretty much explain my justification for my decision. What I would like to know is if you are still at the park and how is it now? I have heard some new horror stories and have been told that the park is dwindling in tenants. I would like to return as I still have my shares. But only if drug problems have been resolved.
