1 Park near Santee, California
Apr 2016 - $53.00
As describe by others, this recreation area is operated by the Padre Dam Water Authority. The series of 7 lakes are part of the water supply system. Most of them are in the day-use area. The RV area is at the far north end of the park. A couple of loops are on the lakes, most are north of the lakes.
We've been here before and not much has changed. The lots are packed dirt/DG. That's good when it's dry (which is most of the time), but could be messy if it rains. There is a nice pool/clubhouse where there are frequent events, including a Wednesday night potluck and Thursday morning breakfast. Utilities are modern and function well. Verizon coverage is terrible = barely 1 bar and frequent dropped calls. Not the park's fault....just be aware. The Internet service is free and worked well, with occasional slow periods. We like this park and will likely go again. Volunteer staff/camp hosts were friendly and helpful. - FireFlyer

This is a park which has seven man made lakes. Many sites have full hookup, which is what we had. The size of the sites varies but I think even the smallest is larger than most RV parks. The site we had was by a small man made river. Near us was a nice park like area. I am taking into consideration this is a park and not an RV Resort. All dirt with some trees. This is winter so none of the trees were green so I really can't tell if the tree near us would give us shade in the summer. There is fishing at each of the lakes (I think it is catch and release). A number of children play areas. Clubhouse. Swimming pool (not heated). They have WiFi but it is pretty slow. The have cable but not many stations. If this was an RV park I would reduce the rating for that but this is a park. So this location is great. We will stay here again. - RVpartyanimal

This is one of the nicest RV Parks in San Diego. Go to their website and do the visual tour. It really is as nice as it appears. The individual sites are spacious and you don't feel crowded. There are different areas where different size rigs can fit in wooded or more open for satellite.
This is about 45 minutes east of downtown San Diego and very easy to get to the attractions.
The staff are wonderful at the reservation/service areas and the host RV families are too. This is our 2nd winter here in San Diego and we find this is our best value as well as natural beauty. I find I can bicycle in the RV park as well as all over the Cuyamaca Mountains and we are very near the Mission Trails Regional Park for hiking and mountain biking. - TexasTomRV
