We felt very safe and comfortable here. It was well maintained. The pool was small, but we enjoyed the Hot tub. Be careful driving down the road. It is very dippy. The road is the drainage system. You drive thru a high end industrial park to get to the camp ground. Yes, they do have some RV's parked on the side of the road. They probably belong to some of the people who live in the actual apartments above the office. A lot of people had high end stuff just outside. Yes, the highway is close and the train is right next to the camp ground, but if you want to camp in the city then this is what you get. We did not find any of the noise disturbing. It did not wake us up. We would camp here again. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

As per other reviewers, accept the noise level from I-8 or don't stay here. It did quickly become white noise and didn't bother me at all. With a smaller rig (25'), I didn't have any problem with the site. Landscaping is great with grass by most sites. Layout is a bit odd but it works. This is all about the location. The trolley stop is right outside the fence (with a private gate to the RV park), and you can get anywhere in the area for $5 round trip. I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

It looks like the owner is trying to improve the grounds. Loads of creeping ivy is being torn out on both sides of the front block wall and the rear fence by the dog walk area. The blacktop is looking a little tired maybe that is next. Yes, I-5 is above the CG and west and causes traffic noise but it is an urban area and you have to expect it. The CG is well located. The office/rec area is decent. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Sites are small and hard to get into, they were blacktop sites. Some of the staff was rude and condescending - others were disinterested. I must agree with other reviewers, it is very noisy. The interstate is on one side of the park and the train track on the other side. There is a 2 hour period from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. where the noise level is tolerable and you can sleep. When we sat outside in the evening playing cards we could not hear each other due to traffic noise. The swimming pool and hot tub looked nice, but we did not use them. The laundry was big, fairly clean but you have to use a card system to use it and any money left on the card is lost. There were lots of long term campers there. There were several Rvs and trailers parked outside the park along the road which made us feel insecure due to the gates that opened from the park to the roadside. Park was close to beaches and other activities. Probably would not return. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Capital-N for Noisy. Capital-T for Tight. I've never been at a park which is so close to a major freeway. The sound is constant and quite pronounced. It never became "background noise" for me, but, you tolerate it to get close to San Diego. And, it was quite tight getting in here. Without my wife outside with a walkie-talkie (something *every* RV'er should have), guiding me along inch by inch, I never would have made it. In one turn we cleared a 5th wheel literally by inches. I'm not looking forward to leaving, and I hope the maintenance guys trim some of the low-hanging branches before we do. That said, it's not a bad park. Many long-termers, which I don't find objectionable, if they keep their spaces clean. And, the Wi-FI is so slow as to be unusable. After the first day I gave up and just went onto my tethered cell phone. Yes, I would come back here if I needed to be close to SD, but I would investigate options first; it wouldn't be my first choice. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This better-than-average park is an acceptable place for the frugal RVer. Yep, sites are tight (pay the extra $3 for the pull throughs if you can get one) and the freeway noise is loud. But if you have a Passport America membership, it's your only game in town if you need to be in SD on a weekend and don't want to pay double just down the road. The absolute best part about this park was the workout room, pool, and hot tub. The facilities were impeccable and the best we've seen even at pricier parks. The nightly hot tub soaks more than made up for the freeway in our backyard. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small park convenient to San Diego sights. The sites are small and close together but our site was adequate to fit our 40 footer and it was right across from the office and pool. As stated by other reviewers, the traffic noise is a factor, but we were gone during the day and it didn't seem to bother us at night. The road leading to it has several dips so be careful. Wi-Fi is available and pretty fast at least from our site. There is a long dog run which is the only area where you are allowed to walk your dog, but it is all dirt. We arrived 30 minutes early on a Sunday. The lady in the office was very busy checking people out, so she told us to go ahead and get settled and come see her Monday morning before 10am to register. Our fee was with Passport America. We would stay here again. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stay here often. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoy the swimming pool, ping pong and pool table. The laundry room has plenty of machines. The dog run is large and convenient. Close to freeway, but not too noisy thanks to the tree cover. It is along a train track, but the horns do not blow near this area. Cheap with Passport America discount. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Beware of the dip going into the park. I was towing a car with a class C and scraped. Did not hook up until we were out of park and still scrapped with tow bar up. It is noisy due to the freeway and trains. But you get used to it, and we had no problems sleeping. The pool and hot tub were great and clean. With Passport America it was around $200.00 a week. Would probably go back if my daughter stays out here, but would have to lay something down to even out the dip. You can see a lot of deep scrapes in the asphalt. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This small park is convenient and close to all attractions. It has clean facilities and the fees were good at $31 per night (Passport America rate). However, the suggestions from other reviewers, that there was "some noise" is an understatement. The park is right beside the I-5 and the noise was horrendous, except from about 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. in the morning. The other drawback is that the access road has "dips" and coming into and out of the park we hit out stairs because of the dip at the curb. We had to do repairs on them. Also watch the trees surrounding the park. We hit one of them as well. The park does not require a deposit, but charges a $25 cancellation fee on reservations. We stayed here for 4 nights and then left for a quieter park where we were happy to pay more. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice facility. Very friendly, helpful staff. Sites are a bit tight for big rigs, but we didn't have any problem with our vintage Class A. The clubhouse was well cared for, the laundry room among the best we've ever used and the facilities cleaned regularly. It can be a bit noisy, between the highway and railroad tracks, but after a day that just becomes background noise. The park is very close to Old Town, Balboa Park, the waterfront, Mission Bay; all the things we come to San Diego to see and do. We'll be back the next time we come to the area. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We called this park on short notice and they had room for us. They even changed our location because our plans had changed and may have had to stay more than the original 3 days. The park staff was very good. All of the facilities were in very good shape. There is a noise issue because the park is between Interstate 5 and the main rail line from downtown San Diego, but you get used to it. After a day it becomes background noise. They did give us a AAA discount of 10% on the listed nightly rate. The park spaces are close and access to spots can be challenging (it was our first time doing any major backing/parking of the trailer). The cable TV worked fine in the site we had. The Wi-Fi was OK, but we were having computer problems, so I'll reserve judgement until another stay. Pool and laundry facilities are excellent. It's fairly easy access from I-5 from either North or Southbound. It's close to Mission Bay and very centrally located in San Diego. We'll definitely use this park again, if other options are not available. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects CC-USA rate. We stayed 4 nights. Full H/U included cable and Wi-Fi. Roadways through the park are very narrow. We were in a pull through and found it to be a good size. Lots of permanent residents, looks messy in some sites. Pool was nice: heated at 86 degrees. We may stay again, more so because of the close location to San Diego.

Sites are very tight to get into, and close together. It's noisy: there's a freeway on one side and a railroad on the other. At least half the residents are seasonal. The campground facilities are clean and well-cared-for. We experienced a power surge when we pulled in which caused damage to several of our appliances. The park assured us the bill will be submitted to their insurance. This review will be updated when we hear more from the park. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Noisy. Lots of Eucalyptus debris, leaves and branches everywhere. Spaces are very close together. About 50% permanent residents, who occupy all the best sites. But, sadly, it's the best park within 20 miles of San Diego. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
