Far away from anything interesting

I have to say this is one of my least favorite Thousand Trails campgrounds so far. Pio Pico has a lot of potential to be a fun destination but I feel it is extremely neglected. Pools and hot tubs are closed. Bathrooms and amenities appear pretty run down. You see the typical "Pardon our dust" signs…

Oakzanita RV Park Review

Oakzanita is 4000 ft elevation up in the San Diego Mountains. Sites are mainly off roads that are narrow and may be hard to maneuver. Many sites are without sewer however on certain days a honey wagon may be available for $25.00. Park is about 40 minutes from Jillian. Park is okay but nothing…

Great place to RV!

Woods valley is a gem in San Diego county. Very natural setting with lots of trees. The campground is immaculate, always clean and they keep the caliber of long term guests very high. Gold standard RV park!

Clean, beach, no signals

Beach views possible on West row, semi private with greenery around spots, staff was friendly and helpful, beach access is a long staircase. Very affordable but no Wi-Fi and Verizon signal was bad for us at least. Quite a bit of noise from the road and train if you are on the east row.

Ocean Views

This campground sits adjacent to the Pacific in Cardiff. Amazing sunsets and very popular with the surfers. Try to get an ocean view site further from Highway 101 so you don’t hear the traffic as much. This was a challenge for us because many of the ocean view sites were empty during our stay but…

What a gem

Arrived here my early Sunday afternoon and I was the only one that ended up camping for the night. There’s a total of 18 sites and some are tent accommodating and some Kennett accommodate larger rugs but none of them are pull through sites. Each site does have a fire ring and there are two clean…

Limited

Limited 30/50 amp full-hookups. Large rigs, beware. access roads are narrow, hilly, AND curvy. But, it CAN be done. Coming in from the south on Hwy 79 (the only road in) warns that 40' vehicles and longer, are prohibited. But, you can make it to the camp. The entrance is a hair-pin turn (from…

A close getaway from San Diego

This is our second trip here. We have thoroughly enjoyed both trips. It is quiet and clean. The vast majority of people here are friendly and respectful. We have only stayed in the sites with hookups. There seems to be a bit more noise and hustle n bustle in the tent only areas.

There is good…

Fantastic county campground

This campground has clean bathrooms and good spaces with great distance between sites. Nice facilities. Beautiful drive to get to it. Reservation is a must and it's well worth it. Pay shower though, but the water got very hot (on a cold night it was perfection)
