We have stayed here before and made a reservation for a specific site. Upon arrival, there was some confusion about the reservation being made/cancelled on the same day (2 weeks ago). We were able to get one of our preferred sites but the office staff were not their usual helpful selves. The sites are tight with trees and/or light poles at the entrances/exits to the sites. Hence our policy of calling far enough ahead to get a workable site for our rig's width and length. Lucky for us it was Sunday night and off-season, so our choices were available even though the office insisted that we only had one option.

Date of Stay:

Some positive park changes since the last time we've stayed here - new working washer/dryers, renovation of the upper bathrooms, and extra TLC when cleaning sites after campers leave (raking areas). The office and park staff are very friendly and helpful. We like this park not just for the costs vs other parks in the area, but for the people and the location.

Date of Stay:

The park has recently upgraded the laundry facilities - a welcome change. New washers/dryers! The park does have a number of long-term residents but most have kept their individual sites clean and neat. We like this particular park because of its location and great staff. The park itself is a bit rough but all of the basics are there - clean water/power and working sewer. And, the sun shines most days with access to the sand dunes within walking distance at the edge of the park.

Most of the sites within Willow are very spacious and mixed sunny / shady. The RV section is north of the day-use area and all areas are accessible for the RVers. the park is really an oasis within the town of Santee and right on the edge of San Diego. The biggest negative is that the Internet access upgrade has been on going with negative effects - access was better before they started improvements.

Date of Stay:

Off-season allows for lots of spaces. the staff even led us into our pull-through. Overall it was a one night stopover. We have stayed here a number of times and never had any problems. There is an off-leash open desert, accessible from a back gate, that was great for our dog.

This is a great overnight stopping area. The grassy field for RVs can be a leveling challenge but well worth the price (essentially free, because of the casino freebies). Staff is very helpful and the RV area is very well lit.

As of '11, the park got new owners. They have done a number of TLC improvements: more natural light in the restrooms, smoother/wider interior roads, and more pleasant interactions with the owners and staff. New owners were the best thing that ever happened to this park. Satellite access is sometimes a challenge. There isn't an off-leash area for the dogs but there is a large treed open field right outside the park that is conducive to letting dogs run a bit.

If you can get the "right" site for length, this works very well. The sites are clean, neat, and even have some grass. Having the casino across the parking lot can be a bonus or bane depending upon your perspective. There is a fuel station right at the park exit which is very helpful. The off-leash dog run is small but better than nothing.

Date of Stay:

While the sites are long and clean, there are numerous rocks, trees, and utility stations that make for difficult entrance/exits from the assigned spaces. There is a very large (wide and long) off-leash dog enclosure that was great.

Date of Stay:

This is a great park with varied-size sites within the different loops. The park is clean and neat because there are a lot of camp hosts attending to the restrooms, pool, clubhouse, and actual RV sites. The only missing piece is an off-leash enclosure for the many dogs that come to the park with their owners.

Date of Stay:

There are a lot of permanent rigs. They have a large mostly fenced grassy area to run your dogs. The basic layout of the park allows for cool breezes to reach each level of the park Our site was sort of a "parallel parking" site - a challenge for a 5th wheel. We found the office staff a bit prickly. Since that is the face of the park we were disappointed.

Date of Stay:

We have stayed here a lot and continue to love the atmosphere, activities, staff (office/rangers) and camp hosts. The sites vary in size depending on which loop. The farther you go into the park (i.e., newer site development), the better, larger and more treed the sites are. The trees in the newest section (Oak) are young but do provide shade. The only missing piece is the lack of a fenced off-leash dog area.

While we really like this park’s people, staff and locale, I.e. beaches, dunes, restaurants, etc., we are losing patience with the lack of care the owners seem to take in the facility. While the staff is very helpful and seem focused on performing their tasks well, it appears whomever controls the budget doesn’t want to invest in a little TLC – pull weeds around horse shoe pits, repaint the laundry/bathrooms, ensure washers/dryers function properly, put "solid" doors on showers stalls, etc. Day rate calculated with Coast To Coast discount.

This was just an overnight/in-out stay, our first time at this park. The office staff was very helpful and even switched our site when it became clear that, with our overall length, the original one assigned wouldn’t work as a pull-thru. As an older park the sites are narrow (designed for the old shorter rigs with no slide outs). A lot of the sites have obstacles (trees, light poles) at the entrance to the site. That was what happened to us. There is a long dog run that is well maintained. Day rate calculated with Good Sam discount.

Beautiful park 17 miles from civilization. This was off season so it was quiet with little golf cart traffic but still many activities. There are few trees to shade the sites during extreme temperatures (like the 100’s we experienced - not the usual for May). There are 2 off-leash dog parks. The one we used was well maintained and provided a lot of space for multiple dogs to run and play. The laundry room was neat, clean and cheap ($1 for each washer/dryer). In addition to the day rate, we paid $4 per day for electricity. That seems very high considering that over the past 6 years of full-timing across America, the highest daily rates we ever paid were $2.63 (Wisconsin) and $2.29 (California). The full-time residents are metered but visitors are bilked. Day rate calculated with SKP discount.
