The best location if San Diego is where you are vacationing. Close to freeways and attractions. You need to have military affiliation to book there, and there are a lots of full timers, so space is somewhat limited. COVID 19 has severely limited access at this time. We visit the campground annually and had to find alternate accommodations this year. The campground is clean, but quite crowded. Everyone is respectful and adheres to the rules. A great place to stay if you can get a site.
