FULL SERVICE RV RESORT

Close to many attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, Sea World and museums. We are twenty minutes from Mexico, so day trips south of the border are not only a possibility but also a great opportunity.

Large RV park - out of the way, but close enough to San Diego to be functional. The Good: - quiet - bathrooms were clean - WiFi available at a price - you need to pay the $10 for the good WiFi The Bad: - dirt and some gravel making the area a little difficult to manage after a recent rain. - DARK, I mean, really DARK -- minimal lighting made pulling in a night very difficult, very poor signage, had to get out and walk around to find the utility post. - no cell service (like at all), - no assigned...

(this is true lots of places - but not usually places this expensive). In short - it's a fine place if you just need to spend the night - but the cost is a little steep for such limited accommodations. Perhaps it's better if you are a member of the Camping Club -- I think they pay a flat fee for the year for all the nights they want. Making the price more reasonable for the limited location.

One side of the park has FHU sites, all of which are back in sites and really short. Anything over 35ft will feel squished and confined. The other side of the park (across the road) has larger and longer sites, some pull thru and other back in, but all site there are power and water only. Pio Pico is a lottery system parks for theFHU sites, they cannot be reserved.

One side of the park has FHU sites, all of which are back in sites and really short. Anything over 35ft will feel squished and confined. The other side of the park (across the road) has larger and longer sites, some pull thru and other back in, but all site there are power and water only. Pio Pico is a lottery system parks for theFHU sites, they cannot be reserved. You get a reservation for the park itself, arrive, get told to park in the other side of the park across the road, where there are no FHU, only power and water. A community dumpstation awaits you, and the laundry room is very far away....so unless you have a golf cart, you will be driving over to wash clothes across the road in the nicer side of the park. Now, if you want the FHU sites on the nice side of the park, get ready to sign up and arrive at the ranger station at 8am to await your name maybe getting called. If so, you get to swarm into the park like a vulture and cruise around, searching for a site that will fit you (sites are smaller on this side and shorter, but the bonus is they are all close to the only pools in the entire park). If so, you wait till the current occupant leaves so you can take it over. Sounds just so friendly, right? Cell service is non-existent here. The WiFi is the pay-as-you-go system that is being installed in all TT parks, Tengo. The 4 pools are crystal clear, and 3 of them are freezing. Hot Tub is just warm, not really hot. There is a kids play room with a large TV to play video games on (bring your system), a few table games like foosball, and lots of activity space, but it could use a makeover because it feels kind of neglected. However, it is located as far as possible away from every activity that you might want to take a bike ride to get there. One laundry room is clean and bright, the other is neglected, dusty, full of cob webs and so unappealing. The big draw in this park is its remote but accessible location by good roads, and the monthly pool table tourney. And the fact that so many of the..."guests" (residents) lease annual sites and travel back and forth between here and the Menifee and Palm Springs TT locations. Not a real Family themed park by any means. Pets are welcomed so long as you pick up their poop. The history of the land itself not withstanding, this park needs to get with the 21st century and install FHU sites throughout both halves of the park...and get a WiFi system that lets you do more than stare at your email.
