Make sure you have directions to campground because it's hard to find. PPA was only good for 2 of 4 nights. Very tight, but level sites. Train & I-5 noise. Nice pool & spa. Lots of long terms. Doesn't deserve resort name. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to San Diego tours of city, Balboa Park and Carrier Midway. It's California so expensive, lots of traffic and drivers that don't give you an inch.

We booked for a month and regretted it the entire time. Dog run is next to drainage / stream which is posted "beware of snakes", so dont let your dog loose. The same area is riddled with poison oak, so again, dont let your dog loose. Lots of dirt, pads are concrete, street is asphalt. Large percentage of full time residents with large amounts of "stuff" outside. Think sanford and son. We have picked up 2 grocery bags of droppings, as the park and owners of the dogs dont clean up after themselves. This park is way over priced. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you like freeway noise on one side of a park and train noise on the other than this park is for you! Sites are narrow and the freeway noise is awful! Train not so bad since they are fast Amtrak trains, not a lot of whistle blowing. Laundry room was clean but had to purchase a card to operate the machines. $5.00 deposit was refunded when card was returned. Park is located in a canyon with a lovely name, Rose Canyon, but this spot is not lovely. we left after 4 nights and moved to another park in the area that was cheaper and a much better environment. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

- Poor customer service -

We are unable to stay here because of the POOR HANDICAP access and wrongful claim of providing WIFI. Managers and those in charge sometimes do not work during weekdays. We asked to be refunded, but was told that there was nothing they could do for a handicapped, tight-budget individual.

- No refunds -

You will not get a refund for time you are not able to stay in the campground. They are not considerate of their customers.

- Noise -

You get what you sign up for here. Visit the campground before you book, because the noise level is awful.

- Poor handicap access -

- *NO WIFI* -

It does not work often and is VERY slow if it does. These are actually the staffs' word! False advertising plain and simple.

- No extra parking inside campground -

Your guests may leave their car on the side of the highway, though.

- Tight turns -

Don't bother bringing your large camper here. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very close sites, highway noise, train noise, strange office staff.

Hook-ups worked good. Wifi worked good.

Sites need updated everything is dated. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you want to do things in San Diego or La Jolla, this is a great spot to land. Rate reflects weekly stay. Our greeting upon arrival was warm and friendly. The sites are full hookup, but not large. The pool, which is heated, the hot tub, and the bathrooms and showers were very clean. This is a city campground, with a highway and train nearby. The wi-fi was slow and patchy. We would stay here again. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was the first time staying at this campground and probably the last. A campsite with a pretty good look, but once you walk around it, is very simple and ordinary. The reception service is quite simple, attended by two people who looked like they were there to pass the time, not as employees of the campsite. They do not have a small convenience store, but only two soda machines and water, and since getting there is made through a secondary road or street, is close to a mile and a half away off the freeway. The most bland of parks. If needed for only a night - good enough, otherwise no. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
