If you have a 40 footer, you can forget state parks in calif near san diego. And I suspect you asked about state parks due to the great one in your state. RV parks that are big rig friendly in Calif are very expensive and you need to get reservations in advance.
Sante lakes is a nice place , but do not attempt to drive it during the rush hours. You will not like it. I hope you have a toad.

They're not a state park and not near Sea World or the Zoo, but are a very nice place to stay near the beach in north San Diego County in Oceanside. Not many places to camp with a big motorhome near the beach for long in north county.

We had a wonderful stay at the SD Koa a few years ago.

My first choice would be Chula Vista RV Resort and Marina and second would be Santee lakes. We have a 37 ft. and always get the pull throughs at either park. Chula Vista probably a little closer.

The only park the others listed that I would avoid would be Campland on the Bay! But,if your kids are teenagers they will love it.

We prefer the Chula Vista RV Resort in Chula Vista, CA. Not as close to Sea World but really not that far either.


Very nice place to stay, as is Santee Lakes. Chula Vista is close to the trolley. So you could take that to downtown San Diego. But the trolley won't get you close to Sea World or the Zoo.

If you are a baseball fan, try to take advantage of the guided tour of the baseball stadium. Very interesting.

If you have any questions about S.D. please feel free to PM me. We are not far from there and try to get there a couple times a year.

Starting 1-1-10 San Elijo will no longer take motorhomes that exceed 35" in length You can try searching San Diego county parks, some of them have hookups.

We stayed at Santee Lakes last April. Arrived on Easter Sunday. It looked like a carnival or festival. The park is in the middle of a residential neighborhood, and the line of passenger vehicles out the entrance gate was about a quarter mile. I really thought I was in the wrong place, and was looking for a quick escape. However, the campground is about a half mile from the gate and segregated from the park.

The campsites are clean and spacious, but pretty meager. There are no firepits, but they tables are covered and clean. There was no shade in our site.

I think it took us about twenty minutes to drive to all of the major attractions. There are freeways, literally, everywhere in San Diego.

Santee is hardly a destination in and of itself, but is more than adequate as a starting point for exploring San Diego, and offers a clean, secure place to spend the night.

We spent a month at Santee Lakes. Unless something drastic happens to them, we'll be doing that again on our next trip to San Diego. Great park.
