We enjoyed our week here as it is a safe and decent campground for area visitors. It is not the kind of CG for lounging in your site, etc. The woman running the place is terrific and helpful. The main problem here is that there is no sewer hook-up, so come with empty tanks. If you stay for a week you will get honey bucket service at no additional fee. They come around 9 a.m. on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. It is probably the best deal for camping on the entire San Diego coast. - nmunozjr

Very basic park with gravel drives and sites. Lots of big shade trees, clean and well kept. Quiet even though it was in between a busy street and the 5 Fwy. Owner/Host very friendly and accommodating. No sewer hookups but rest stop north on the 5 has two free dump stations. We stayed here for a dog show at Del Mar fairgrounds. Much better than the full hookup sites that we saw at the fairgrounds. We will stay here again. - MarvMarvs

Simple park, we were told where to park which did not accommodate our trailer due to the trees being too low (a/c unit) and too narrow for space which we could not open awning. The great thing was its close proximity to the beach and highway access. Diesel fuel stations close by not RV friendly. There are no sewer hook ups, but there is a mobile service which visits twice a week. Our trailer was 27' in length and the spot given should be for parking a vehicle. We had to park a certain direction with the door on the left into a tree and the slide on the right inches from the other tree. There were other spots available not sure why we had to be placed there. Parking our vehicle was difficult when other rigs were there. Having to wait on dump service before travel was not worth it for the time we spent. No fire pits all gravel but level. There are no restroom facilities no playground for children. - reymer

This campground is within Palomar Mountain State Park, and it is great for families. The road in to the campground is narrow and windy. Fortunately, there is not much traffic. Our group had RVs in sites 30 and 31. Site 30 is a pull through, level, close to the bathrooms. Site 31 has a lot of trees but is not even close to level. The Ranger programs are fun, there are many trails to hike, and a fishing pond within walking distance. - latraveler18

We stayed in what we thought was an oceanfront space, but actually had NO view of the beach or water because of the huge sand berm. Every day a tractor pushed sand higher and higher to protect the park from ocean water surging up and (eventually?) going into the park should there be a storm. The beach was right on the other side of the berm, we just had to climb up and over to get there. The pictures on the park website show a view of the water (from the "ocean front" sites), but it's not so. The train goes by several times a day and also at night, but it doesn't blow the horn or sound too loud. It's dry camping at a clean and relatively quiet park right next to the beach. We enjoyed our stay, but were just a little disappointed we couldn't see the water. - CoachCathy

Another CA state beach campground, pretty much just like all the rest. Only providing the basics, and at a high price. Again, no dogs allowed on the beach, as instructed by a rude park ranger guy, but lots and lots of dogs were on the beach that evening, and with no enforcement at all. No sewer at site. No power at sight, so lots of generator noise. Not a whole lot to do if you don't have a tow vehicle with you, as walking distances are considerable. All-in-all, this is the only SoCal state beach campground that earns a rating over a two from us. Mostly due to the fact that they have an actual beach that you can access rather than just cliffs. Not a lot of choices for RVers in the area, so if you must... - xyz-123

Stayed 5 nites. Spacious sites with small shrubs between. Well kept, clean and right on the beach. Lots of families with kids. They are very strict on out by Noon, NOT in before 2PM, and generator rules are strictly adhered to, allowed 10AM to 8PM. Bring your own firewood. The stuff the host was selling was pieces of soft pine, more like lumber cuts. Would stay again and great if you want to be right on the beach or within a few feet of walking to the sand. - Nevada Nick

I stayed here for a couple months. The roads in the park are a bit narrow and rough for rv's to traverse. In spots they are nearly impassible and heavily rutted. Few spots are level. Mine was so unlevel I could not level my rig. The only internet available was theirs though they told me I would be able to get my own wired -sure, if you want to put up a 30 ft tower for satellite reception as I later found out! Their wifi is highly weak and unreliable and they'll charge you for that. Their laundryroom and single washer and 2 dryers were dirty. My clothes came out smelling worse than they went in. It's 15 mi through the beautiful mtns for shopping and descent food -Escondido. The worse part is they for some reason wanted to keep moving me to a different spot each month. That was maddening. The lease agmt they will want you to sign requires you to waive 1 or more rights. I will never be back and strongly recommend you NOT visit. It's a beautiful area, but I could not find a worthwhile park around for fair value. I would consider another region. Beautiful area, but lousy park. - 2 maybe 3 eagles

According to the campground's website, they can accommodate trailers and 5th wheels up to 40'. This is simply not true! The road that runs through the campground is steep, winding, and over hung by hundreds of low branches. In retrospect, we should have left as soon as we arrived. The park is old, run down, and covered in red ants and thorns. The fellow campers were noisy and inconsiderate with no supervision from staff. The pool was old and dirty. Several other fellow RV campers we spoke to agreed. The sites are incredibly narrow, close together, not level, and overhung by very low branches. Although we are very experienced in maneuvering our 36' 5th wheel, we struggled to navigate the road through the park and then to get into our narrow site. After positioning our trailer on every leveling block we own, it still was not level because the site was so far sloped. When it was finally time to check out after two nights of very little sleep due to noisy campers that partied until 3 in the morning, we were finally told that the dump station that is listed on their website was not operational. The final straw came when trying to pull out of our pull-through site. Branches and sharp corners blocked by boulders made it almost impossible to navigate our trailer out. After over an hour of trying to maneuver between boulders and branches, our trailer was completely wedged between. We had to call for help and be towed out. Any type of RV, especially one of any length, should never attempt to camp at this campground. Only people in tents, who wish to party all night instead of sleep, should reserve a site at this campground. We will never return! - SoCalRVFamily

Nice place in the wilderness, lots of shade and trees. No hookups but nice big spaces with picnic tables, great for ourdoor people who don't mind dry camping. There is water in the park and a spigot to fill your RV by the showers. Not much to do but enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery and the sunsets. Dogs loved it. We will be back. - coyotetraveler

Sites are extremely small and tight together. Some are very hard for larger rv rigs. Leash requirements are not enforced which is difficult for us who have pets on leash. People run or walk through others camps. Most likely will not come back here. - SullivanD

The service was excellent. The site we were originally assigned was very tight so we asked for a different site, they were very accommodating and gave us a very nice larger site.
This is a nice place to stay overnight but there is nothing to do unless you have a boat or water toys. Traffic from the highway was a bit loud. We rode our bicycles around but nothing really appealing to see. would not recommend this park for off season family fun camping unless you want to go shopping at Costco or the outlet mall. - chaparral

This is a rather strange place. I am not familiar with the area but ended up here when the places closest to San Diego that I was interested in were all booked. It is a very reasonably priced. It is virtually empty, except the for the full timers. On the holiday weekend the place filled completely.
The sites are not level. It seems that cable is available for an extra cost. The internet is just horrible. For many days it was not even available. They had to wait for the provider to show up after the weekend. The download rate is 1.61 mps. Upload is .46. Just awful. And I was just feet from the office.
After the holiday weekend it took several days for the garbage to be all collected as it was too much for the dumpsters. Instead of having extra pickups, they just keep filling the dumpster on regular pickups.
Overall I can't really recommend this place. But if you need a place to stay I would not dissuade you from coming. I felt safe and it is convenient to Costco, Walmart and other stores. - SonoraBob

This is a trailer park, not an RV park. Almost all permanent residents. Old, not real nice looking, no wifi but descent cellular connection. Good location but I wouldn't use the place again. - Ken Sawczyn

I found this RV Park pleasant to visit for several weeks. It's somewhat dated, but in decent repair. It could use some tender loving care though. If it were updated I would have given it an 8 or 9. It appears the park is 90% filled with full time residents who are pleasant, quiet during the day and evenings. Sites are mostly average for RV parks, but my Ram 2500 parked on the site with my 32 foot fifth wheel would have been a little tight. There was additional parking very close by though and I chose to use it. RV Park borders the lake. The staff was very pleasant. - RetiredVagabond

I stayed here for 3 nights in early April. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Mostly month to month renters, but the park was clean and orderly. Pretty quiet too. Ample grass and shade. I might consider staying a month or two next winter. - Jeff J

We stayed 3 nights. We stayed in section C - but Section B is also very nice. (Didn't go into section A) Just look at the map when booking. Our site was a spacious pull through with FHU. Plenty of room for our 37' RV. There was a 42" near by as well, with plenty of room. We had a view of the rollings hills and surrounding meadows. There was several trails to explore around the lake, as well as places to bike, and walk the dog. We saw a few playground areas and splash pad for kids. There is also a large, beautiful day use area with picnic tables. The lake is nice for small boats and fishing. The only disappointment was that the only kayaks allowed on the lake are the sit IN type. We have Cobra Explorers sit on tops, and those are strictly prohibited. I gave four out of 5 stars because of the kayak rule and the fire ring was full of glass and debris from the previous occupant. While we didn't use it we had to clean it up so our dog wouldn't investigate the debris and glass. Over all we really like this park and will return with friends! - Nan Griff

This was a nice park with nice grassy areas to walk the dog. Some sites, believe in Loop A & B have lake views. We were in C and while we didn't have the lake view, we did have some pretty views of rolling hills. It was a pretty dusty area and there was no pad next to RV. There is access to a boat ramp, which we didn't use. You can't swim in the lake. There was a deli on premises and a store. Some wineries were very close, it was about 25 minutes to Old Town. Spots were long enough, a little close, but we did have room to put out both slides and our awning. There was no separation between sites. Our picnic table was a little beat up. - dorcol

This is a big park with a lot of sites. Great areas of grass for playing games and lots of roads and trails to bike a bit. - Californication
