Overall Experience
Stayed at the San Onofre RV park, Camp Pendleton, with our 5th wheel toy hauler the weekend of 23 - 25 Jun 2017. Excellent location with older facilities that are showing a bit of wear, tear, and age. Check-in personnel were helpful and polite. Although the park was almost at capacity, nearly all of the RV sites on the beach (45-72) were closed (temporarily??) due to excessively high tides and beach erosion. At high tide ocean water actually washed across the paved portion of the road into some of the occupied RV sites (1-24). They've dumped tons of grapefruit sized rocks on the beach to control erosion. What I've been told used to be a nice, sandy beach is now half covered in these rocks. For those that use Google Maps or Earth (in satellite mode), note sites (73-91) at the SE end of the park that are on the immediate NE edge of the long, grassy area (which runs NW to SE) are actually on a large bluff/knoll about 30-40 feet higher in elevation than the beach. If you're able to backup a toy hauler into these sites and open you're ramp door, you'll be treated to quite a view! Be prepared to inhale a bit of smoke during your stay. Most sites have large concrete fire pits which are very popular, especially during the weekend. The exchange, commissary, and gas station are only 5 minutes away. Overall it was an enjoyable stay. If you're into surfing bring your surfboard!
