One of the best campgrounds I have stayed at this year. staff is very helpful. Very well maintained campground. 75% long term residents. Lots of rules to make every resident a good resident. Full services -security, store, close to interstate access. They think of everything. - Geno1986

This park was satisfactory, as it was close to Escondido where we stayed for the weekend, only 35 minutes to San Diego. We had asked for a spot up top based on another review on this website; the warning is the hill to get up there. I pull a 40' Landmark with a 2014 1-ton truck. If you have anything less I wouldn't go up. It's very steep and will put a lot of strain on your truck. Take a site lower down. There seemed to be a lot of full timers. Picturesque stocked fishing lakes. Staff were very friendly. - North America in 90 days

We stayed here for five weeks. The sites are nice and large enough for our 45' motor home. We were escorted to our site and then the owner even came by and helped us back in. We stayed for over a month, so had to pay for electric. It is on a tiered system which starts at $.10 a kilowatt and ends at $.30 a kilowatt. We were told that it changes monthly. We were also charged an EECC fee of $115. Our total electric bill was $415, so I recommend using propane. A propane truck comes by on Fridays to fill up motor homes. - greyhoundmom

This is a nice park and the rate is excellent for this area. But on nights the casino has special events the price for our site went up to $90 dollars. On weekends the price goes up to $70 for our site. Also the road to the park is very winding and narrow in some areas. Surrounding mountains and morning marine layer with nice cool mornings. Great park but can be pricey. - Diceman1036248

This RV resort is only a few years old and is a HOT spot for summer activities and the Pala Casino. We stayed here for 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. As busy as it was and as many dogs as there were, the grounds were immaculate. The have a shuttle that will take you back and forth to the casino. Oceanside Beach is about 40 mins to the west, Temecula is approx 20-30 mins and Julian was about 45 mins. We even drove down to La Jolla for the tide pools which was about 1.5 hours south including traffic. or 1.5 hours north west to Huntington Beach. All easy day trips. There are also several fruit stands near by. - These Itchy Feet - gottakeepmoving

Stayed in the bluffs spot 26. Space big enough for my 22ft trailer, my 4 door f150 and awning out with space for a tent too. I came here as a kid so I knew there was trains that went by at all hours. I'm a city boy so it didn't bother me. What did suck was the truck weight scales that had a guy on the loud speaker at 2am. Not the park's fault but people going there should know about it. I recommend spots 1-22. They are close to trail 1 where the surf break has a lifeguard and dogs are allowed (they are allowed on trail 6 too). Our spot had a nice fire pit with a quarter grate on it so we could cook on it if needed. They supplied a picnic bench which also had room next to it for a 4-6 person tent. The bluffs are just that, located on the top of the bluffs which means you need to take the trail down to the beach. They can be steep in some spots but not too difficult to navigate. At the top of each trail before you descend to the beach is a park bench where you can watch amazing views of sunrise/sunset. Trail one has the least amount of rocks. Trail 3 had nothing but rocks so bring water shoes. Even trail one beach would be better with water shoes. This is officially our 4th of July spot at least until our dog passes away (no fireworks were heard the entire time we were here!) Love it here. Staff is really really nice. By the way...this is a primitive site with no hook ups but the sewage dump and hose to refill grey water tanks are near by. - gbprideoc

No view of ocean except for a few spots at 100 to 115 I think. Very dusty, the trails to the beach are steep and some very difficult. We were camping by trail 3, it was hard to go down. Pebbly beach. It was noisy of space 33 where we were. Train passes very often and there is also a truck check point on the highway (wish is next to campsite) We had a fire ring and a picnic table, people were very quiet and polite. Our neighbors left because of all the noise the night before. Not sure I would want to return here. I guess it is and ok place to spend the night on your way somewhere, but not a destination to go to. - Nilda

San Onofre Bluffs Campground (south of San Clemente State Beach and San Mateo Campground). Typical state park campground. No hook ups. 3 free dump stations. $35 night (RV and tent same price). Large RV sites. Tent sites have trees and privacy between each space. About 1 block from beach. 12 nice easy walking trails to access beach (divided into 6 sections). Section 1 and 6 are dog friendly. Very friendly staff and park host. No gates that close. Generator hours are from 10 AM to 8 PM. Noise from trains and highway but easy to forget about it. Great views over the landscape to see the ocean. Visited over weekend and over half RV spaces were open. 15 minutes to shopping and fast food. Will return. - ustractorsales

Took our camper out for its maiden voyage here. This place is such a lush little hidden gem right in San Diego. The park itself has three small ponds which are mosquito treated, and the ducks and swans are gorgeous there. They also sound hilarious. The lakeside spot was perfect, great drive thru spots open. The pool is clean and a hub for family and kids. Lots of residents here but they're very friendly. There's an easy hike if you walk to the back of the park and under the gate that rewards you with gorgeous views of Palomar and a few other lovely surprises. There's many old Oak trees and lots of shaded picnic tables. A small church group meets there in a natural outdoor amphitheater, walk up past it and you'll be rewarded with a serene, crystal pond that perfectly reflects all the trees and skies. The camp hostess is a local and she is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly, and supportive. Note: the drive to get there is pretty tight and windy so sway bars help a lot. If you miss the turnout for the camp entrance don't worry there is a place for you to make a u turn with your rig albeit 3-4 miles down the road both ways. Watch out for military vehicles. - NSvihlDMD

We booked in advance two nights.We Changed or plans. Camp ground gives no refunds for any reason. We went there. Saw how small the sites were, tried to get a 39ft fifth wheel in, but not enough room to maneuver. Finally insisted o a refund to size of site and conditions. Lady was good to help had to contact manager to do refund. Park is ok for small campers, but it is very old and needs some up grades. Would not go back in a big rig. - wedgedriver

We stayed for the July 4th weekend and had a great time. The staff was polite and responsive. The bathrooms were clean enough. There were 3 showers for the women but small with no benches or ledges for your things.
The pool was clean and refreshing. We had electricity and water at the campsite, but not septic.
When we made our reservations they said we had to bring our own fire pit, but when we got there, they had put one on our site. Then on the second day they installed a BBQ for cooking near our picnic table, which was nice as we did most of our cooking outdoors.
The only problem we had was with campers next to us. A large party on several sites, they were loud, drinking and using foul language late into the night. Despite having "quiet hour" at 10 PM, no one did a thing, as the office was closed. So we were up late, trying to enjoy our own fire, but had to listen to that late into the night. We especially didn't appreciate our young boys having to endure that kind of language, the topics, etc.
We complained the next day. They were given a warning. We were given a phone number to call/text if it happened again w the promise they'd be 'escorted' out. However the next night it happened again, lasting well past 3 AM. I texted the number they gave us at 1 AM, but once again no enforcement.
We complained the next day and they said they didn't have anyone to patrol the campgrounds at night or enforce the rules because their security guard wanted 40 hours (full time work) but they didn't have a need for that. I asked why they didn't have someone just for the holiday weekend.
All in all, it was a good time despite the lack of sleep due to the lack of enforcement of the rules. - BarbaraD

This is just another example of the failed attempts made by CA state to bilk dollars from campers while providing only the basics at a ridiculous price. Most sites, including ours, are nothing but dry, powdery dirt that tracks everywhere. Views are nice, but you are up on a high cliff, so accessing the rocky beach is not an easy task for some. Once again...no dogs allowed on the beach. Our site was in a row of eight empty sites, so we got one good night's sleep before some inconsiderate neanderthal rolled in the next morning twenty feet away and set up his mega-camp. Camping etiquette rule number two, broken again. Homeless people in the site across from ours didn't make for a great experience either. Lastly, the campfire smoke will nearly choke you out if the wind isn't just right. Skip it. - xyz-123

A rare opportunity to camp on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Most sites have no hookups. - midnightpumpkin

Two rows of campsites in this park, those directly on the water and those one row back separated by a road. We stayed both this trip. You definitely want to be on water if you can. You also pay more. Most all of it dry camping with a few exceptions. You will pay more again for hookups. All the sites are in high demand. We saw all sizes of rigs in park. Small tents to large motor homes. Our 28ft travel trailer fit well. The ocean view 180 degrees. Beautiful. Lots of road noise from outside the park. - smitty12

Great location. Sleep listening to the surf. Beach is not kept groomed, by law it must remain natural and what washes in, seaweed etc, must stay until it is washed out. Unusual to have sewer hookups this close to the water. Lots of surfers, had a large group for several days while we were there, but the park is surprisingly quite and peaceful. AMTRAK ran just up above the sites, but not really noticeable after awhile. Staff friendly and helpful. Security patrols on a regular basics. Have to meet non-military guests at the gate, but Marines are very professional, polite and helpful. - Old Salt-First Mate

The park has suffered damage to due to storms. Surfers Paradise and the Beach spots were closed for camping. We camped on the Bluff and it was wonderful. - cakvj

As usual we really enjoyed our stay. We camped a few feet from the Ocean/Beach. Lots of Pelicans and other sea birds. Staff friendly and very professional. Spaces adequate for our 4 slide 39 foot fiver. Restrooms clean and well maintained, but with the cooler weather this year a little cold. Sat. dish plenty of clearance. Limited WI FI, only works near the office. Trains run behind the sites and can be a little noisy, but didn't keep us awake. - HR Clark

A nice park with lots to do around Temecula, especially Old Town. I was a little disappointed with the grass and grounds condition, maybe due to the lack of needed water. Interesting point, they tell you that the bathrooms/showers are a substitute for your own R V. Push buttons for shower water. Very good pool and spa area. Diesel fuel stop very easy to maneuver. - SSM 46

Excellent value at the PA rate, which is only valid weekdays. The RV park is very nice and maintained well, with ample sites and a little grass at each site. No picnic table at site. Most of the resort amenities are over at the hotel, but there is a pool and spa at the RV park. Free shuttle to hotel and casino. Very good wifi, good Verizon, fair selection of cable channels. Great options for dining at the casino. Beautiful golf course, though pricey and crowded. However, RV park guests are entitled to use the golf practice facility, including a very large short game area, for free, which is a great bargain. - KAP99

Very clean park with nice, level sites, grass pads on each side, lots of trees and hedges for privacy and great security visible in the park throughout the day and night. Off the road, so very quiet, with a beautiful pool, nice laundry facility and clubhouse. They also provide shuttles to the casino, firepits and gathering areas. One nice feature: they have fee-graded sites, depending on how many amenities you want on your site, up to and including a nice grill, gazebo and chairs, picnic table and a large grassy area. A very pleasant stay. - Tee Gysin

We came here from Lake Skinner Rec Park. We thought this was a nice park, for the one night that we stayed. It is mostly permanent residents, here but there is availability for overnight guests. We had 'lake' parking and it was nice, peaceful and quiet. Will return again. - awphull1

This is not a campground - this is a trailer park. 80% of the sites are used for full time guests which is fine but they really should tell people that. Our site was sandwiched between two full time families who fought all night (I thought we'd end up on Cops) and walked around half naked. We had no fire ring, no picnic table and the bathrooms were locked. Our neighbors dog used their deck as a bathroom which was eye level with our windows. We had to keep them closed and covered the entire time. The lake is green sludge that reeks. Maybe this is better in the Summer but our experience was horrid, we went home early and will never go back. - Charlalee

This is an interesting place to say the least. They have their own pond/lake thing. There are a lot of residents, a few vacation home people and then us overnighters. I have to admit that is the friendliest place around! Lots of nice folks, not too noisy. The roads around here are dirt, so don't expect the best accommodations if you are used to a more luxurious style. They can handle RV's of any size, and tents too, but like many parks, the spaces for the larger rigs are limited. There is no cable, no TV, no cell phone coverage and you are lucky if you can get radio inside your rig. There is Wi-Fi, but only if you take your laptop to the bar/office area. Bring a book! The lake is interesting. It is basically a few streams built up behind a dam. But I have to say that I find it “nice”. There is catch and release fishing, paddle boats, a swim area and an area to launch water balloons into the lake at your friends and strangers. There is also: a bar! OK, so it is not a FULL bar. In fact, all they sell is beer. Still, on a hot day in August, looking over the lake and having a cold one. - BBlast

This is a California State Park. Take I-5, exit 72, "Cristianitos Rd", east about 1 mile. Watch for unmarked, turn-in lane to park (veer right at the yellow "crash barrel"). If you wait for the CG sign, you'll miss the turn. Cristianitos Road is recently paved asphalt, lined with "bots dots", in excellent condition. Credit cards accepted or use ReserveAmerica.com. Tent camping, no cabins, no yurts. Park roads are wide enough, asphalt, in good condition. Serious parking obstacles - wooden posts line roads and site pads (see pictures). I'm good at backing a 40' fiver but this was very challenging. All sites are back-in. Gentle turns, no overhead obstacles. FHU-20/30. Sites are level, asphalt, no landscaping (desert dirt), with water and electric at rear of site. No sewer - use dump station. No patio, has picnic tables. Low scrub bushes and trees, okay for satellite views. Fires in fire rings permitted. Firewood sales at $7.00 bundle. Good water pressure and taste. No office, no store. Clean and modern restrooms, buy tokens to pay for showers (grade "A"). No propane sales, laundry, or playground. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. Verizon coverage at "1-bar"; Jetpack coverage at "1-bar". Occasional traffic noise from the interstate. Bug Report: black ants (I sprayed my landing pads), large gnats (nuisance), small flies. No recycle bins. - StephenK

We stayed in the non-hookup sites. It is a quick bike ride to the beach with a few hills, but to have access to Tressels is great!
Less cost per night than San Clemente, but if you don't tow a car, be prepared to pay $15/night for a car as there is no overflow parking or street parking along the road (only near the highway).
The scenery and view are nice here too. Overall it was a nice place to stay if you can't get near the beach for camping (we prefer San Clemente if we can get it though).
The bathrooms were messy though as there are no garbage cans in the bathrooms and no soap in some and no sink in others.
The campground had a little bit of trash around, although we did see staff picking up, stuff can hide pretty well and a few campers don't care about what they leave behind.
Overall we'd come back again if we can figure out the parking.
We stayed in a motorhome with friends in a tent. - Adams Family

We stayed at a non-hook-up site, near facilities. Staff was nice and mostly helpful. The showers cost (fifty cents for 2 minutes) and no hand-soap in the restrooms, so bring your own. Short drive to the beaches, and your fee got you free parking at any of the other state parks/beaches. - ems_gpa

My rate was for Monthly stay. Was a Very Nice Place, pool, Showers , Bathroom very clean. Friendly Staff plenty of room for RV - not much of a patio area. Close to I-15 but the noise was very minimal. Close to 2 grocery stores. - MattB

Wonderful park...clean, quiet, and the staff was awesome! Escondido is a beautiful little city with lots to do and centrally located to all kinds of things to do. Families with children are put into one area, thereby making it quiet for singles and couples. The manager was very accommodating, and very receptive to any issues. Can't wait to come back! - Jamee S
