|Since we have been staying at our Resort parks, there are many, I have added a page where you can pick the park you want to see All Parks|
Pio Pico RV Resort|
This park is about 25 miles from the San Diego Bay and right outside of El Cajon, it has over 400 sites with full hook ups on the south side of the park and on the north side they only have power and water.
It is very difficult to get phone service here, we had to purchase a booster for the Verizon wireless, and now we get the internet but we have to unplug and put another adapter in to plug the phones so we can talk out.
The park has had some rough times, fire in 07, that burnt down cabins motor homes etc., flood in 04 and another fire in 03. When come into the park you would never have know there had been a fire.
The area is comfortable cold at night and nice around 75 during the day.
Our site C-35
close to the clubhouse, read the journal for the day we arrived to see how we finally got a site for the TV
There is a Lake about 1 mile from the RV park, Otay Lake, it looks medium compared to other lakes, lots of fishermen at the lake the day we went.
You are close to all shopping including Wally Mart, Costco, Target, Lowe's etc. You are about 48 miles from San Diego. There are many towns in the area Chula Vista, Rancho San Diego, La Mesa, Santee, Lemon Grove and El Cajon. There are 4 Casinos also.
There is little activities in the park as the staff has been cut in half and the manager here was a hotel manger before coming here, and doesn't know that RV'er need stuff to do in the parks they stay at. So I am putting on Cards with Carol Tues and Weds. nights. They do have some craft sells on Saturday and some Pool Tournaments, there is a swimming pool but it is closed for the winter. It is a clean park, so far the people who work here are friendly and do want you to have a good time. I think the park is more interested in selling sites & renting cabins.
There breakfast here is much more expensive then Pilot Knob, we ate 2 eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns or waffle and toast all for $4, here it is around $8 to have breakfast.
We will see how it is this Sat. as that will be our first one.
