Make Lake Skinner camping reservations using the Riverside County Parks online system, RivCoParks.org. Access the reservation page through the main park webpage or through a link on the Lake Skinner information page. The Make Reservation button leads to a map of the campground.
Lake Skinner has three separate campgrounds: A, B and C. The map opens up on campground A. Each map shows the type of campsites available, the proximity to the lake from each, and the locations of restrooms and shower facilities.
Along the top of the map are fields where you input arrival and departure dates. Press the Search button. The site shows unavailable sites in campground A in red, and if you mouse over them, you see the comment "This site is unavailable." The purple sites are host sites for campground personnel.
Hover over the remaining sites to get information on their lengths, whether they have hook-ups and if they are back-in or pull-through sites. If you want to check out campgrounds B or C, click on the appropriate tab on the right.
Once you select a campsite, the site directs you to a page with a picture of the campsite, more detailed information, and the price for your stay. Click on the Reserve This Site button. This leads to a price confirmation page. If you've camped at a Riverside County Park before, log in. If this is the first time, you need to register to complete the reservation.
