This place was out of the way from most all of San Diego attractions. We thought it would be nice to get away from the city in general. We were told to just choose any site we wanted, after we waited for almost an hour, while someone was on their lunch. What they didn't mention was that there were no sewer hook-ups, as had been advertised. There were only 2 showers for the women, and 1 of them should not even be used. The washers and dryers are outside and exposed to all the elements and everyone. Also, no cable and our cell phones did not work. Many, many full-time residents with cars and trucks coming and going at all hours of the day and night. The Border Patrol even made a stop. We will never go here again or recommend this place to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately the restrooms at this campground are a disaster. Not only are they in serious need of general repair (tiles falling off walls, doors rotting, etc.), the sewer/septic system does not work properly and the staff need to learn how to clean! I looked at the same toilet paper covering the floors for 3 days. Absolutely disgusting. The showers were not any cleaner and we opted to take a splash in the pool as a daily rinse. We camped here in a Tent.
Overall we had a good time camping here. The campground is actually mostly residents but they give the best spots, which are around the lake, to the visitors. The residents do a pretty good job keeping their sites clean and staying out of the way of the guests. Our spot was right on the lake and you can place your fire ring to face the water. Fishing was catch and release. Contrary to other posts, the fish were biting and they were large catfish. Most of the guest sites were water and electric--I would give this place a higher rating if there were more sites with sewer. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I used to camp here as a child. The owners were great people and took very good care of the park. Now it is under new management. I guess nothing stays as nice as you remember. The new managers make poor decisions in my opinion. When we made our reservations they did not tell us that they had about a hundred girl scouts booked the same weekend, which probably wouldn't have been a problem the park is big and didn't have a whole lot of other campers however they put us right next to all the scouts. Being we have no girls and all together we had 9 boys. They didn't tell us that the pool and boats were going to be taken by the scouts as well. So all in all there wasn't a lot to do. The fish are well fed and very hard to catch. Some of the people who live there told us that they have never caught anything. So if you want fishing this is not the place to go. The only thing I can say that was fun was the frogs. They have big bull frogs and the boys had a great time catching them. But you need to be careful because on our last night my husband fell and hit his head on rocks and ended up with a concussion. I have medical reports to prove it. They do not have pay phones and cell phones do not get out there. Or at least ours didn't and we had Sprint and Verizon phones. We have twin babies and one has a heart condition and we need to be able to call for help if needed. Instead of trying to be helpful or even concerned the managers said his fall was our own fault and we could never come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
