Is there anywhere to camp near Diamond Lake? Also are you allowed to drive OHV's (like Rzr's) near here? Thank you

There is no camping at Diamond Valley Lake, but I believe there are some RV resorts and campgrounds nearby. Check out something called San Jacinto OHV Trails at riderplant-usa website
