35 Parks near Camp Pendleton Marine Base, California
Nov 2016 - $25.00
This a great campground for the military. Although, they still have not leveled the sites, even though many reviews (this site and military reviews) have complained. Sewer connection is quite a ways from the electric, so need long hose.
You can request specific sites, when making reservations. There are a couple of large trees, pine needles really messy, so if you have roof top satellite, better to ask for 50-52 or 55-59. 55-59 appear to be the most level of the sites. - vwbluestar

We enjoy staying at Lake O'Neill Campground during our frequent visits to Southern California to visit relatives. This time we stayed in a back-in site with cement pad that was level. Most pull-through sites are grass/dirt and not level. Utilities were all good. Verizon cell service seemed better this time for some reason. - Schooner50

We always enjoy our stay at Lake O'Neill. I do wish they would work more on getting the spaces level. As I have said before, it is quite obvious spaces 52-61 are NOT level. They slope down toward the south. Not too much of a problem for 5th Wheels, but large (35') class A RVs wind up with the front wheels off of the ground. Normally a fairly quiet park, dredging of the lake 24/7, except for weekends, did tend to grind on ones nerves. This is forecast to be completed sometime in July. Really though cannot beat the price for what you get. We will be back again. - vwbluestar

The park has suffered damage to due to storms. Surfers Paradise and the Beach spots were closed for camping. We camped on the Bluff and it was wonderful. - cakvj

As usual we really enjoyed our stay. We camped a few feet from the Ocean/Beach. Lots of Pelicans and other sea birds. Staff friendly and very professional. Spaces adequate for our 4 slide 39 foot fiver. Restrooms clean and well maintained, but with the cooler weather this year a little cold. Sat. dish plenty of clearance. Limited WI FI, only works near the office. Trains run behind the sites and can be a little noisy, but didn't keep us awake. - HR Clark

The amenities at San Onofre Beach are adequate and well placed allowing all campers to enjoy the beach setting. What was very disappointing is the apparent lack of efficient management, state of repair of laundry/restroom facilities, and overall cleanliness of the campground. Several times prior to arriving I called reservations asking if any full service sites had become available as my reservation was for water and electric only. On all occasions I was told that no full service sites were available. Upon arrival, the assigned site was too small for my RV and I was reassigned a full service site which I remained at throughout my planned stay. I also noted that several full service sites were always available during my stay. Unfortunately the entire campground is littered, unkempt, with several washers/dryers and toilets out of service. It seems that no one is caring for the amenities, landscaping, and it seems that rules are not being enforced. San Onofre Beach could be a real gem conveniently located to many local restaurants, activities, and beaches but considering the noted deficiencies and depressing condition, it rates only two stars at best. - rams-2015

Great little county park just a few miles from lots of services, restaurants and stores. It's located in a slight depression so we can't see the homes that are slowly encroaching on the park. There is some traffic noise but it abates after all the commuters get home.
The asphalt sees are mostly shaded and have a patio, picnic table and fire ring. - LMandTinView

We made reservations to stay four night, but had to cancel five days before our arrival. Guajome has a 30 day cancellation policy within which no refunds are given. This is far different than private parks which either impose no charge or at most charge one night's stay when a cancellation is made a short time before arrival. - RaySc

A real find for this area. a few sites are suitable for 40+ foot rigs, but most are a better fit for smaller RVs.
The park covers over a hundred acres with miles of trails and a lake. All sites have water and 30 amp power. All have tables and fire rings. The camp hosts sell firewood at competitive prices. The showers are good, with plenty of hot water. - bobcovey

Contrary to the prior review, this is an Elk member ONLY campground. We had FHU's (30amp) and excellent Wi-Fi is included. - FLtravelers

An Elks lodge RV park that allows non-members access and takes reservations. Parking is on dirt/gravel on a level lot. Large covered picnic area for groups. Laundry available at lodge building. Narrow sites for rigs with slides on both sides you are only 4 feet from your neighbor when his slides are extended. Big rigs should watch for dragging turning into lodge coming from the north. Host on site. - Bucky Beaver
May 2015 - $23.00
Elks only. Park has gotten rundown and not very clean. Many year-round people staying here and the junk around these RVs is very apparent. 30 amp power is marginal, I read 110v many times when the EMS would kick off. Not worth it even at the $23.00 price. - sd1209
Jan 2013 - $20.00
An Elks lodge RV park for members only. Large level lot with gravel. Average spacing between rigs. Dump on site, wheeled cart (blue boy) available for dumping without moving. Near Legoland. Host on site. Near shopping, 1 mile to beach. - Bucky Beaver

We have found California RV parks, particularly in coastal areas to be a very poor value compared to other western states. But everything in California is more expensive, and you would have to expect to pay more in locations with proximity to beaches and coast. This place is no exception. Way over priced relative to what you get, but if you're going to stay in southern California, you gotta pay up. we paid just more than $850 for a 3-week stay. The Good: Front desk staff was friendly and helpful, main building/club house very clean and bright, small pool/spa (we did not use). We did not use bathroom facilities, so cannot comment on them. The bad: Sites are severely out of level, broken landscape sprinklers in random sites cause mud holes, tight parking for tow vehicles, NO REFUND policy, lot's of rules and many are not uniformly enforced.
It took 3 attempts plus a trip to lumber yard and Camping World to find the appropriate materials to get our coach level and find a way to get in and out the front door. Plus the twisting and stress on coach chassis. We inquired about cutting our stay short and was advised no refunds would be given.
We would not stay here again, nor recommend it to anyone in a motor home. The sites are just too un-level; I'm guessing most have a 6% - 7% slope to them. - Bruins_in_the_Bus

Paid for a week and left a day early - only stayed that long as we had plans with friends in the San Diego area. Sites are OK in size, but we had a choice of a pull-thru or back-in and were convinced to do the back-in as it would be quieter. NOT!! Just on the other side of the park wall live very noisy people with barking dogs and loud voices plus it looks like a shanty town with laundry hanging all over their back patios. Cable service was awful - tried to talk to office and they wanted to blame it on our TV's, but both TV's were having the EXACT SAME PROBLEM?? We finally put up our antenna and got the local channels that way so we could watch news and sports. Would not stay here again. - denvercats

This is a standard RV Resort. Sites are concrete and each has a tree and ground cover as well as a patio area and picnic table. (some leveling required as all of the sites are graded down hill, however, the park provides levelers).
Pool is clean and good size. There is also a very large Jacuzzi.
Bathrooms are large and clean. Showers were great!
There is a laundry room with soap machines, etc.
One of the reasons we stayed at this park is that it is located near all major highways and freeway systems. Close to shopping and restaurant's! - jmjack

We were lucky to find any place over the Thanksgiving holiday! I had waited until the last min. (not thinking) and had called "everyone" and this place had a cancellation (yea!) so we got in, so I was grateful for anything! That said...the spaces were tight, but were cement & level and came with a round table & bench set. The price was high...but all that I expected. The whole SD area has gotten this way, all up and down the whole county! The cable reception was excellent and the so was the WiFi. The Sprinter noise didn't really bother us, because it goes by quickly, even tho it's pretty often. There are plenty of places to walk to eat, and you can't beat the weather! The staff was wonderful. - MarieB

We were there with a group, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The park itself is very clean and well maintained. A nice pet area. Spaces are a little tight, but large RVs had no trouble getting in. Absolutely no fires allowed (propane or wood) but they have BBQ grills in the pool area. - mosyn

We were just passing thru and stayed for 2 nights. Best rate we found for a site with hook-ups. The site was concrete with a picnic table and patio. We have a 37 ft motorthome and we fit, but it is tight. Full hook-up, but the cable is being worked on so we ended up using the dish. For a short stay it works for us because we are traveling thru so we don't need a lot of space. Plan on be gone during the day anyway. Train did not bother us, not much noise and I don't think it runs at night. - belanga

We took our class "c" motor home for the holiday weekend. This is a great location near the beach and walking downtown. The staff was helpful and knowledgable about things to do in the area. We took the regional coaster train down to San Diego. Tight camping spots but great for families. Free root beer floats was a nice gesture by the park owners. - Hwy93

We have always wanted to try this park and got lucky with a last minute reservation. You are greeted by a very friendly and helpful staff. As a bonus, they have 24 hour security. The location is awesome! A 3 minute walk and you are on the sand looking at the ocean. You are also very close to a train stop if you want to go either direction up the coast. The park is tight but once in your spot, they offer plenty of room. We had no issues getting around in our 43' coach. Yes, the train is loud but after the first night, we didn't really notice it and we were against the back wall closest to the tracks. I wouldn't ever spend a season here but for a clean, safe, ideal location in SoCal, this place is perfect for a vacation. We would stay here again for sure. - longweekends

The hosts where great! We had a reserved a site prior to our stay. When we arrived I did not want that site and asked for a site near the back by the dog walk, the host said no problem and had one of the hosts take us right to the site and helped me back right in. The walk to the beach is under the train track and through a small park, but well worth it , my wife had never seen the ocean and the beach was just what I hoped for, great sea shells and long sandy beach for walking. The sites are close to each other, but everyone was very nice. The only reason we gave 4 stars instead of 5 was the Internet was just plain terrible, and oh my gosh the train at 02 AM was just LOUD...really..LOUD. That said we will stay here again can't say enough about the staff, not one rude team member. - para566

Mobile home park that is closing and still about 10 old trailers left. But great location two blocks from a very nice beach with a large city playground and $10-$25 less per night than other area RV parks. - rvbruce

Having read a review for another Oceanside rv park that mentioned in passing that Catalina was "an armpit" I went there with caution. Maybe not enough. The park is small and hard to maneuver around in. Half the sites are occupied by old mobile homes. Recent rains made some of the sites soft. I got stuck in one and had to get a tow truck to pull me out. After all that I managed to get a site and got hooked up. Utilities were at shared posts. I had to go over a fence to plug in for electricity. There are no restrooms or showers. The laundromat was clean. Most of the neighbors were friendly enough, although the wife heard a lot of screaming from an adjacent condo complex. Only good reason for staying was due to weather and the price. Other RV parks in Oceanside were over $40. Our rate was for Passport America. I would never have paid full rate for this park. If you have a small rig and don't mind the trailer villa atmosphere then give it a try. Just watch out for the wet spots. - Onemoretrail

We have stayed at this park many times over the past years and do so simply because it is ideally located and close to family we visit in the area. It is an older and pretty much run down park that is mostly permanent residents and with few spaces available for overnight use. It is a "quaint" little park with a small but well stocked grocery store on the premises which is used by outsiders as well as those inside the park. It is situated in between I-15 and old Hwy 395 so there is traffic all day and night but surprisingly is not that noisy or bothersome. The owner is great and very accommodating as by now we are on a first name basis with her. She always tries to get us into a space that is easy to back into and away from some of the older and more run down units in the park and that is why we continue to come back each time we are in the area visiting family. The rate is a tad on the high side for what you get but it is after all very well located and in the San Diego/Escondido area. Prices of other parks in the area, but not much better, are even higher. We have checked them out and even stayed at one only to be very disappointed. So once again is really is the only game in town that serves our needs. Funny thing, a few months ago we were watching a program on the Home & Garden channel and it featured a "tiny house" that was recently constructed in the very space we were in on our last trip to this park. As we drove by it we both said, "Hey, there's that tiny house we saw on TV". And it is sitting right next to the old beat up, run down, ugly, and totally trashed out old Airstream travel trailer we sat next to and mentioned in our last review of this park. - BankShot

We used this park due to its convenience to family we were visiting in the area. Quaint little park with a lot of permanents but they were friendly and in one instance very helpful with a slight problem we had. Great little store on site that is used by the general public as well so it has many more items than most RV park stores do. We bought several items there. A really nice pool area and a small seasonal lake that gets all covered with algae and scum, etc. when not cleaned. The space was a tad tight to squeeze our Class A into but we managed. A small table is provided and hookups are convenient and okay. Would probably stay again when we are back in the area to visit but only then as there are much nicer parks further away. - BankShot

We've been to this area many times before and always stayed at the Sunland RV park or closer in to San Diego. We typically use the RV park as a home base for wine tasting in Temecula and decided that this time we were going to try and save some money and try a new place. After reading a ton of reviews and looking at photos and Google Earth trying to decide, we settled on All Seasons RV park. We are pretty flexible with where we stay, we don't have a fancy rig or anything. We prefer the "off the beaten path" kind of place and typically prefer more of a "camping" experience. Although we truly appreciate the amenities of a fancy park, we're pretty simple with our requirement. Full hook-ups, quiet and clean. I guess with All Seasons RV Park 1 out of 3 is what they were shooting for. Let me start with the "good" that allowed me to score this place a 2. The staff is friendly and helpful, the pool area is really nice and the camp store is really well stocked and convenient (more on the camp store later). The "lake" does look nice, when the sun is setting and the wind is blowing just right and you close one eye and peak at it from around the corner and frame is just so with a tree or something. The hook ups worked, cable TV was a little spotty at times, but we got GREAT cell reception and my Verizon Internet card worked GREAT! So we could stream Hulu and Netflix movies and pretend we were somewhere else. (You know, Magnum PI is STILL a great show!) On to the bad. As we were rolling in to our site (#11) we had to wiggle through this sort of, gauntlet of "permanent" residents. Although no one was a problem (noise, parties, etc) certainly could have done some tidying up. Some sites it seemed that these residence had all of their worldly possessions piled outside their camper (these are campers not mobile homes) and some of these campers seem like maybe they've been here since the California was declared a state in the late 1800s. A few of them I'm pretty sure, you couldn't tow them anywhere if you wanted to. Some people have put up these "tarp" garages which is nice for them, but it really looks bad. So it just made for an unsightly area. People's things, cars, trucks etc., were hanging out onto the already narrow road. It was a huge disappointment right off the bat. Our Site: Our site backed up to the lake (which was nice), but it was TIGHT. We have a 17 foot travel trailer (no slides) that we tow with an old Land Rover. This is NOT a huge setup. Backed in as far as we could the front bumper of my truck was sticking out on the road. On the hookup side of my trailer they had planted some evergreen trees which gave us a plenty of privacy from neighbors, that worked well, however they were right up against the side of my trailer and the hook ups were buried at the base of the trees. I literally had to get down in the mud on my hands and knees with one shoulder pressed up against the side of the trailer and the rest of my body getting scratched to death by being completely embedded in the trees in order to get everything connected. Our site also sloped toward the lake a little (makes sense) which is sort of a problem for our camper. Our "pipe" is VERY low to to the ground to begin with (clearly not the RV park's fault), but it seems that our site sloped toward the back, away from the hook ups that were mounted in concrete about 3-4 inches above ground level. I put my trailer up on 4 inches of wood and with the slope of the site, we were still in a position where we'd be somehow having to drain significantly UP hill. I'm still not sure how I'm going to make that work. Each site does have a fire ring (one of the reasons we chose this place), this was great because we like to use our dutch oven and cook as much as we can over the fire. It's nice. Well, this fire ring is a rusty tire rim, tossed on the slope of mud between our camper and the lake and filled with garbage. It sat at about a 30 degree angle and was literally FILLED with trash. Non-burnable, nasty trash. Cigarette packs, Styrofoam bait containers with rotting worms in it, half full plastic water bottles, a few dozen feet of tangled fishing line with rusty hooks still attached etc. It was nasty. I also found used rubber gloves (apparently from the previous people's final dump) laying in our site. I spent the first few hours of our stay, CLEANING up our site (filled an entire garbage bag). Not the way I would expect to start out. There is a nice concrete patio with a picnic table (adorned with a skillfully carved AC/DC logo). This site is situated almost parallel to the shore line of the lake. So when we open our camper door we have a very nice view of the lake. It's nice that we are not staring directly at the "business side" of another camper. This arrangement results in very sharp "pie-shaped" living area, the big end of the triangle being toward the front of the camper and the small angle being at the back. So we have this 3 foot bit of concrete patio with a picnic table (that barely fits, then a 6-inch concrete drainage channel then the fire pit, then it slopes off into the lake. In order to use the patio and the table you are constantly stepping in/over this concrete drainage channel. It's VERY dangerous in my opinion. Adding a metal grate or something would SERIOUSLY make all the difference in the world. The Store: Just a warning. The camp store doesn't appear to be run by the campground. It's actually a convenience store like the kind attached to a gas station and serves the public as well as registered campers/residents. The store is a little creepy. It gets a TON of traffic late into the night. (I'm not actually sure how late it's open, but well after dark for sure.) There are people coming and going, buying liquor and various tobacco products. I did buy some beer while I was in there, they have a good selection and the staff is VERY nice. You just kind of have to wonder what ELSE may be being sold in that store, you know? Summary: The staff is nice and helpful. They even called me in my car when we weren't here when we said we were, and helped get us turned around when we missed the exit. Very nice. The pool area and the one area near the bathrooms/showers seem to be "Newer" and the presence of new-looking concrete and wooden structures (hand rails, decks, fencing etc.), indicate that maybe renovations have been recently done or are at least a very slow on going process. This place has a LOT of potential but requires a TON of work. The final thing I'd like to mention regarding this park, is that it sits in a little creek valley 250 yards wide (at it's widest) in between I-15 and old highway 395. The road noise is CONSTANT an very loud and 24/7. It never gets quiet. At this point, I don't see us returning until we see a sign on the road (or website) saying "Renovations Complete!" or "Newly reconfigured and remodeled." I'm not sure what they can do about the road noise, that's just a location thing so it's hard to knock them for that. They could also work on cleaning up the sites after people leave. - Brian and Jenny
