***** September 27-Oct. 11 2010
Silent Valley RV Resort (ROD)
46305 Poppet Flats Rd.
Banning, CA 92220

30 minutes up hill to the park, an very long climb, there are plenty of pull outs so the traffic behind you can go around, take your time going up this mountain.  Elevation 3545

site F 3

When finding our site all we cared about was to get TV from the satellite, we ended up right beside the horseshoe area, Drew who also holds the Texas Holdem tournaments comes and practices about every day.    He is a great person and now a wonderful friend.

When you turn down Poppet Flats Road this is what you will see of the 400 acre park.
Entrance to Park  

Over 850 sites, this park is well maintained. Restaurant, Bar, store.  They serve dinners on Thursday thru Saturday and Breakfast buffet on Sunday.  Haven't had the food yet will let you know the prices and if good or not.

Full hook ups with 50 amps and the electric is really good, we have had to run both AC's due to the heat and have had no problems.   There are a lot of trees and the sites are all sand/dirt.  We found site F3 pull thru site, we are able to get satellite and phone with the booster, and it is very close to the Adult clubhouse.

The park is huge over 400 acres, there peak season is from June to middle of Sept.  The park gets full once again on Halloween, as they take section B and make it into a hunted forest.  Apparently everyone around the area comes to this. The Restaurant is open Thursday to Sunday morning.  Having dinner selections from $7.99 to $12.99 Mike and I ate there for 2 dinners and breakfast buffet on Sunday the food is not bad, beats going down the mountain if you don't want to fix meals.   The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a full service bar with happy hour for Monday night football, $2.00 drinks and some snacks.

We do find that they have a lot of rules, for instance when coming back into the park after leaving you must have your gate pass stamped, if you do not re-register every Tuesday there is a $10 fine.   Texas Holdem is played every day sometimes twice a day depending on who is in the park to hold the tournament, so you know where we are everyday at 12:30 (that's when we play poker)  There is a group of folks who play 65, they play it different then I have played, but we all have fun and I am meeting new friends.  You can see some of the folks we played with by clicking here

30 min. away down the winding road there is Super Wal-Mart, Fantastic Sam's, Nails Home Depot all in the same shopping area, so you can do it all in one day if you wish, I do not like the road up and down so we did all we had to in the same day.
