Could not find the darn place! 😡

Pleasant surprise

SoCal State Parks are still closed and I took a chance on Skypark Resort at Rim of the World. It’s basically brand new and was a great experience. We had an amazing view and lucked out for plenty of privacy (our section was just us all weekend).

Great Mineral Spas!

Loved our visit here! We found that the park is under new ownership as of the summer of 2020. They are working on improving and updating the park facilities. They also offer discounts now. Good Sams, The Dyrt and Military. Weekly rates includes one night free (pay for 6 nights, the 7th is free). Monthly rate is an even better saving. All RV reservations include the use of the pool courtyard so that is an additional discount. You do not have to pay day use fees, access to the pools is part of the posted camping rate. Reservations are required now. Thanks to the front desk for providing the info on the rates.

Love the palms, pools and black swan! Nothing like having a warm soak before bed. And a soft-serve ice cream to cool off with (they have a soft-serve ice cream right in the office)! Recommend if you have a large, large rig to request a large site in the 'over-the-bridge' area. We had a nice experience with everyone there.

If you need a place to stay

This is a Thousand Trails/Encore campground. Which isn’t a bad thing, but, they do need to upgrade the electrical system. They don’t have enough 50amp sites and not all of them are always working. This park is first come / first served and they don’t prohibit a 30amp rig from taking a 50amp site, so you can see the problem. Now don’t get me wrong, we have been there 5 times in the last 2 years and will go some more, especially with the grandkids, but we have never been able to get in a 50amp site. There are a lot of positives at Wilderness Lakes, like, you feel like your in the wilderness, lots of shade, 2 nice big pools, store, snack shack, propane and more. If you’re a 30amp rig, you’ll love it here, need 50amp as long as you don’t need both A/C’s you’ll love it too.

Nice campground for those that just want to get out in the RV.

Most of the sites don’t have shade (I’m not telling my favorite site number 😁), and they are sort of close together. That said, I still like going here. There are 3 different camping loops that seem to have their own personality. They have a kids playground, and a splash pad for the warmer months. (That would be in loop B, though everybody has easy access).There’s also a lot of grass areas to play on. The park does allow fires in the fire pits, of course. And the lake does have fish, so if you’re a fisherman you’re going to love this campground.

Best RV Park in Town!

We stayed a little longer than a month and enjoyed how accessible everything was from this location. It's also a great home base for exploring up to Malibu all the way down to San Diego and every place in between. Carlsbad Village is just a few miles away and there is great ice cream and Handel's and cute shops and restaurants. 

ABOUT: The RV park has its own back gate to the beach. It meanders through a little city park and then you can take the roads to find little beach access or walk through the neighborhood down to the proper beach and Oceanside Pier. Laundry is a bit pricey $2.50/wash and$2.00 dry, but they work well and one cycle dries your clothes. It's tightly packed, but manageable. One of the team members will help you park when you check in which is really helpful. Concrete pads and hookups placed conveniently by your rig. Picnic tables and a palm tree divides each site. 

There is a commuter train that goes by and we were concerned before arriving due to working from home conditions, but we were pleasantly surprised. At our site it wasn't bad at all. It only came a few times a day and it was not a big deal. Didn't affect us working from the RV. 

CUSTOMER SERVICE: Very responsive team, especially over email. Facilities are nice and the staff keeps the grounds very clean and tidy. It is a pretty laid back atmosphere and a variety of guests, lots of families having fun together. You can have packages delivered but they go to the office and not your site so remember to add your name. 

WIFI/ CELL SERVICE: AT&T cell service worked full bars and wifi was great. Very little trouble working remote or streaming. There were a few times where we needed the support of our back up hotspot on our phone for video calls instead of their wifi, but other than that it was great.

Secluded and Peaceful

Getting up to the actual camp site though was a whole freaking experience. You NEED 4WD or AWD to get up the mountain, there are some gnarly spots and cars can get stuck. But wow, beautiful views and so many areas to camp and park. All of the yellow post sites were taken but there’s so much land, we were able to park off the road and find a little campfire pit. The sites were so spread out and it was secluded enough that we could walk outside butt naked and not worry about anyone spotting us! Definitely would recommend for a weekend!

Great place for a quick get away

This is a great place a for a quick get away. Close to the city but far enough away from the lights. There is a ton of stuff to do here. Fishing, kayaking, hiking, water slides, disc golf, bike trails. The RV spots are beyond huge! We will be back soon.

Great River Side Spots

My family and I stayed here recently to get away.  This campground is situated right next to San Luis Rey River.  Any riverside camping in San Diego is very rare.  The River was small, but the sounds were nice.  Weather was great.

The restrooms here are awful; poorly lit and maintained.  Wish they'd put some effort into making the place look cared for.

Fun family camp ground

Lots of sounds and sites to explore!! The spaces all had water and fire rings with tables. Bathrooms and showers were decent and relatively clean…showers do cost 25 cents for 2 minutes!
