Overview: This is a Thousand Trails RV park 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. It is set amongst the beautiful mountains and near Otay Lake and San Diego National Wildlife Refuge. It has many amenities but the pools and spas are very well maintained and lovely.

Campsites: There are two sections to this park. Pio Pico North only has partial hook-up sites (water, 30 amp electric). Pio Pico South has full hook-ups (30 amp, water, sewer). In high season there is a wait list for the full hook-up sites. Sites are variable but each has a fairly level gravel pad. Some have picnic tables and shade trees. Privacy is minimal as the sites are very closely spaced. However, because it is a large park people try to leave an empty space between sites to allow for more patio room and privacy. Pio Pico South is the nicer area of the two.

Amenities: Adult saltwater pool and hot tub, Family pool and hot tub, playground, family lodge/youth center, adult lodge, game room, pickle ball court, basketball, volleyball, horseshoe pits, country store, Coyote Canyon Café, activity center, picnic areas, RC race track, hiking trails, bathhouses, and laundry facilities. The pool and spa area are very well maintained!
