The three-number rating that accompanies each campground listing in the directory gives readers an at-a-glance assessment of a campground's amenities, cleanliness and environment.

How to read the Good Sam Rating 10/10 /10.
All three ratings categories are measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.Less than 1 percent of parks or campgrounds receive the coveted 10 / 10 / 10 rating, which indicates superior facilities that are well maintained, clean, well-appointed restrooms and a highly appealing appearance.Campgrounds are inspected annually by dedicated RVers like you.

Completeness of facilities

10 / 10 / 10
The first campground rating evaluates completeness and quality of facilities.In this category we rate interior roads, sites, registration area, hookups, recreation, swimming, security, laundry, store and building maintenance.

My 3rd stay here in a pull-thru. Very convenient to Santee shopping or highways to the bay. There are also sites near the stream or lakes. Very attractive. Park hosts work to keep their amenities clean and up to date but I could never find one at their camp sites. When the coyotes along the San Diego river begin their howling it may frighten you at night or late afternoon but I saw none inside the fence. Be alert for the black and fire ants that are very active on the sites. I plan to return again and again.

We have been going here for the last two years. It is great. The spaces are large enough so you have some privacy. Lots to do. Swimming, fishing, things at the community center etc. Its clean and well maintained. Prices are very reasonable.
