We stayed here last year at this time and only the weather was better. That's not to say that the park wasn't better as I give this park a 10 even without sewer hookups. The staff is great and the sites are always clean and the security is top notch. The best sites, IMHO, are the ones on the lower loop which would be 20-30 something. After staying at this park for two years in a row, I'd really like to see what some of the county's other camping parks are like. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here to visit relatives in Vista. The staff was friendly and checkin was very easy. $1/night/dog. Site was spacious and easy to back in to. Lots of great trails in the park for walking, and two nearby playgrounds. Dump station was easy to use with no line. The restrooms were average, but clean. Not much privacy in the showers, but they were free with hot water. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Travel Trailer.

I am rating this park a 10 even without sewer. The staff is out of sight and the security is great. The sites are kept clean. The only downside was that it rained twice while we were there and the dirt turns into a real sticky mess. We stayed there for ten days while taking care of the grand kids who lived about 10 minutes away. The $25 reflects $24 for the site and $1 for the dog. It is really handy to a LOT of different shopping centers in the area. We will return. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here before and the park was OK. I've changed my opinion as a result of the latest visit. I don't think we'll be back. The sites are very dusty/dry. The restrooms and showers were OK but not really maintained as well as they could be. I just feel a general lack of interest and pride in the maintenance of the facilities. Lots of ants and on this visit they found their way into our trailer and the dog dish on the inside. Easy to eliminate but still an irritant to me. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here with a group of about 10 motorhomes. Lots of trees. A lake. Grass areas. Sort of an oasis in a dense residential area. There is a great / worth a detour to visit / part of this large park with a huge collection of old vehicles / steam and gas / motors / buses / AG machines and so on. Worth several hours to go see. I checked off 50 amp available, but in our area only one site had 50 amp. The rest were 30 amp. No sewers, Wi-Fi, and hard to use sat dish. Bring DVD's if you want them. Not close to a freeway, but fairly high road noise. This is an old homestead from Spanish days. A very good weekend place. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great Regional park that has allot to do. Plenty of easy hiking and biking trails for the whole family and there is also fishing. The sites are sizable and ours was paved and level. You feel isolated from the city elements until fire station across the highway lights them up, which they seem polite enough to only sound there sirens during the day. The camp is nicely laid out and it's not crowded. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park with a lot of running and biking trails nearby. We spent a weekend at the park and noticed most of the other campers were families with trailers but did encounter other motorhome travelers. The restrooms were adequate but could use a little more cleaning and updating. They are not heated and it was a little chilly taking a shower in the morning and the water was not very hot, but adequate. The location was great because you felt like you were in a rural area but in reality only a couple of miles to anything you needed. The bike trail to the beach was wonderful and well maintained. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground in a huge open space park. Convenient to shopping and ocean. Not much available in terms of TV reception unless you have satellite. Lots of birds and trees. Very peaceful. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. It got a 7 because no Sewer or Wi-Fi. Good website that shows site sizes so there are a few for big rigs as we have a 45ft 5th wheel. Convenient to North San Diego. Will definitely stay again. Need to book ahead as was fully booked well in advance of the Dec. and Jan. period for the larger sites. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good county park type facility and well maintained. Ants were mentioned by another couple and we saw them at our fire pit due to someone leaving food in it. That seemed to keep them away from our trailer so we were OK. Showers were free and included: lots of hot water and quite clean, though basic. I would not hesitate to spend more days in this park!

This is a nice little park to get some R&R. If you looking to be entertained this is not the park but if you are looking for a place to go for walks and bike rides or just sit outside and read this is the place. Lots of trees and close to the lake. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

We love this place; clean, nice facilities, good walk paths & forest setting. (Easy commute to visit grandkids in San Marcos!) BTW, the actual city is Vista -- it's inland from and close to Oceanside, the park is surrounded by the city of Vista. RESERVATIONS are needed nearly year-round; go to San Diego county parks website -- they are nice folks, but hard to get into weekends between April and November, unless you plan at least 2 months in advance!

This was a nice park. I will camp here again. There does seems to be a few of long term people living here. And the guy in the car was still there in Jan. 08. Easy to back in spaces. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Site #11 We had driven through this park about a year or two ago and remembered thinking that we'd like to camp there but when we got there we couldn't remember why. It's close to lots of shopping which can be good I guess. It wasn't bad but not that good either. Many fairly derelict units in the park, one car parked every day in the day use area and many nights in the campground, don't know for sure but it seemed like someone was living in their car in the park. A little road noise from Hwy 76 but not too bad. Park staff was friendly on check-in, sites were paved and ours was level with some trees around. Restrooms were clean enough and dump was easy to get to. We paid $16 but the rate for water and electric sites has gone up to $20, still quite a bargain. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.

Posting this a few months after our stay. The person who stayed in December 2006 mentioned someone possibly living in his car here--I suspect it's the same guy we saw every day we were there in September, and the inside of his car (doors and trunk open) definitely indicated he was living in it. Never saw where he went when the non-campground part of the park closed. The campground is woody and the reservation website is accurate in describing the sites (we're 40 feet long, so it matters). There weren't many people when we were there and it was really mellow, but it looks like weekends are always full and reserved months in advance. Nice little nature trail and wide open hike/bike trail open to the public behind the park. Highway 76 west of the park to Interstate 15 is a twisty road that has a LOT of rush hour traffic. Map says 10 miles, but it feels like a lot more, especially in a big RV. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Motorhome.
