Just a gem of a county park. Clean and well maintained. The site was easy to back into with the RV. Too bad it rained heavily for 2 of the 6 days we were there. Still it was sheltered and quiet. We would go back again if we were in the area. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Motorhome.

Nice Park in Ramona. Great for quick trip out of San Diego. Small town of Ramona has everything you need just a few miles away. The campground has lots of trees and some hiking trails. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stay in this park every year for the Thanksgiving weekend, and love it every time. We reserve early, so we get the site we like, which is more private than some of the other sites, which would work good for a group. The campground rangers (yes, they are rangers, not hosts) put on great programs for the kids, including night walks, bouncy ball games, and various crafts, as well as evening slide presentations; reminds me of the old days of camping when I was a kid!! The facilities are always spotless, the people friendly, and the location of the park is ideal for trips to the mountains, or down to San Diego to visit the waterfront or the zoo. And, don't miss the cinnamon rolls at the Ramona Cafe, down in town. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here with our church group for the annual camping trip. The park was very nice with lots of shade trees and spacious sites. The kids enjoyed the large playground and small hiking trail that went through the back of the campground. Our site had water and electrical and there was a dump site on the premises. The dump got a little busy at checkout time, but there was no pressure to be out immediately. I saw someone cleaning all the campsites right at checkout time to make sure they were in good shape for the new campers. The bathrooms were fairly clean, but had no soap of any kind and sometimes was low on toilet paper. It is very close to town and easy to get to. We saw many people catching fish in the pond and playing on the large grassy area. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice clean park. Restrooms clean but no hot water available at sink for shaving and are not heated. Park like setting with narrow roads and each site is a different size, some with parking, some not. Sites seemed space well. We called the ranger's station prior to make sure our site had a place for our truck. If you stay and like to hike Iron Mt. and Mt. Woodson are within 10 minutes drive. All and all we liked the park but gave it a 7 due to the above. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here on a weekend and it was pretty busy. We found a good site with trees and had plenty of shade. Campground was in a convenient location with many stores a few miles away. Didn't have to negotiate a lot of hills to get there. Park was very clean and restrooms were spotless. Like the campground very much and will probably stay here again.

This was our first time staying at Dos Picos. We arrived on a Tuesday and had the campground pretty much to ourselves. It was very quiet. Our 3 kids enjoyed riding their bikes through the campground and by the small lake/pond. The picture on the reservation website showed grass at our site #36, but upon arrival we could not find any sites that had grass. The oak trees made for nice shade and were all through the park. We would stay here again, but only on a weekday. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park, neat, clean and well-maintained. There is ample spacing between the sites so the park never feels crowded. There are lots of trees, so pay attention to the notes on the website if you want satellite access. The only drawback, for big rigs, are the very narrow roads and tight curves. The site was plenty big for our 41 footer, but it was very tight getting in and out. San Diego County has the best website for reserving campsites that I have ever seen, check it out. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Motorhome.

This was a return visit, we last stayed here a few years ago. Several improvements have been made to the interior roads and the sites. Sites are covered in wood mulch, which makes things less dusty. The restrooms were clean, but had spider webs and they could really use modernization. The interior roads are narrow, but there is plenty of room between you and your neighbor. Overall a pleasant camping experience. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Pleasant quiet area with plenty of shade. Small stream and pond on campground. Nice playground for the kids. Roomy spaces, but no bushes, etc for privacy between spaces. 30amp service with water hookups. Dump site in campground. I did see bathrooms, but did not utilize them. We stayed here while visiting the Wild Animal Park. May visit again. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Motorhome.

Site #42 paved, a bit sloped from side to side with a small parking arm for a tow or towed vehicle The site has nice oak trees on both sides with a fire ring and picnic table. The tree on the right stopped us from using our awning but that was OK. We have a 30 ft class A and had no problems getting in or out. We did get some TV service but you'd have to call it fair at best, just good enough to catch some March Madness. Good Verizon signal for phone and internet. We love the town of Ramona.

Site #41 A very nice park near the town of Ramona. We didn't have a problem with low hanging branches this trip which we were happy about. Our site was paved and level, not too close to the neighbors, we couldn't get TV service but decent Verizon signal for phone and internet. We paid $16 but the rate for water and electric sites has gone up to $20, still quite a bargain. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Motorhome.

Nice county park in a remote area. Has about 25 sites that will safely accommodate a 40' motorhome. Enthusiastic ranger talks. Our only complaint is that they allow tree branches to slightly damage RV as you travel inside to get to your site. We camped at Dos Picos County Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed a very nice camping trip at this park. The spaces are large enough to easily back into and our space had plenty of shade. Be mindful to check the shade coverage, especially during the summer as the un-shaded spots are awful! The park offers programs such like a Bat Hike, Fish with a Ranger and crafting for kids. The fishing is catch and release and the pond is very small, but it was OK. There is a nice park on the other side of the day use area. Overall I would definitely go back to this campground.
