This place looks run down but is perfect for an overnight stop. It has good 50 amp electric and long pull throughs and is very quiet. The staff is friendly and will escort you to your site and explain the hookups. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't for the appearance. I would stop here again.
We return to this park every winter for at least a week. Many amenities for winter residents. Spotty internet service if that's important to you and perhaps there is a watering ban because the grounds were very dry.
The new big rig sites were full and the pull-thru we were assigned was just marginal. We had to be very, very careful to avoid another coach getting into the site, and then we had to stop in the middle and trim a tree. We had to look out for trees as we exited the site in the morning. We were over 60' feet long and when we made the reservation, we told the friendly gal at the desk we did not want to take off the tow vehicle. Just another reminder that we should ALWAYS investigate the site before forking over our money.
Long pull through site, but not laid out very well. I could not level the coach in the first site and had to move. The utilities were poorly located. The pull-through sites were obviously not designed by an RV'er. However, the park was quiet and road noise was minimal. The roads were wide with plenty of room to maneuver a 41 foot coach and toad. The dog walk was clean and fenced.
Large, level pull-thrus for our motor home and tow vehicle - no problem. We made a reservation but it did not appear necessary. Good stop for an overnighter if you can sleep through the trains. Dogs are allowed but the designated dog walk is full of stickers. Dogs appear to be an after-thought at many RV parks, in our opinion.
Ideal park for the overnighter. Easy in - easy out. Friendly staff helps get you to your site. I'm glad we made a reservation early in the day; the place was packed. Cable and internet service was satisfactory. If there were other amenities, we didn't use them. However, as with many parks, the dog walk area was full of stickers.
This is a nice clean campground with easy access from the freeway. The sites are level and the grounds are attractively landscaped. There is a lot of traffic noise during the day but fairly quiet at night. I would stay here again.
The spaces were tight and parking a 40+ft. coach was a challenge. The front desk staff were very friendly and the owner was extremely helpful with local information. The noise from 101 was minimal and the park was quiet at night. I would stay here again.
This is a park in the middle of wine country but it is way too cramped and overpriced. We were less than two feet from the coach behind us and too close to the adjacent coach to deploy our awning. On the plus side the desk people were friendly and the resort was quiet in the evening. WiFi and cable was included but $67 before discount, that's way too much for a dirt parking spot.
This is a beautiful park and would be wonderful in the winter but when the temperatures are in the 120's it's difficult to appreciate. However, the staff were very friendly and the facilities were clean and attractive. We plan on staying there again, when its cooler. Considering the park was almost empty I found the cost to be rather high.
This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in 15 years of RV'ing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The lady who works the front desk is a treasure. Santee Lakes is a model for municipal resorts. Cell phone coverage is sporadic but that's not the fault of the campground. Free wifi in the new section is excellent. Pets are welcome and the weather in July is perfect. We'll be back.
Nice long pull through's and clean sites. This park would rate higher if it wasn't for the fact that they nickel and dime you with added charges for cable and 50amp electric. They allow pets but all but threaten to shoot you and your dog if they don't make it to the designated pet areas in time. The pet contract, in my opinion, is way over the top.
We have stayed here many times in the past seven years and although this is a great park it is definitely going downhill. We saw run down rv's and lots of weeds and deteriorating landscaping. Many of the sites were for sale which looked like folks were jumping a sinking ship. I don't know what is going on but I suspect all is not well. It's still a great rv park just no longer one of the best.
Gravel back-in site with good hookups. Roads were narrow and difficult to maneuver with a big rig. I would suggest you remove your toad even though they say you don't need to. Only negative was the sweet smells of nature from the feedlot to the southwest which, unfortunately, is the prevailing wind direction.
I didn't care for "Security" driving by every hour or so and frequently stopping to take notes. I felt like I was on parole. The designated dog walk was dirt, little or no grass. The cable TV was very poor and the wifi was intermittent. This is a parking lot with power pedestals. However, it was close to Mission Bay and nice shopping areas. We'll find someplace else on our next trip to San Diego.
