Rancho Los Coches
   (near San Diego)

I wanted to be reasonably close to San Diego for a family visit, so I checked out San Diego RV Resort, The Vacationer and Circle RV Park. When I saw that those are situated right on I-8, I was concerned about going a week without a good night's sleep due to all the noise. I was happy to find Rancho Los Coches RV Park - it's just a little over 20 miles from San Diego, but off of the highway enough so there's no noise, but still very convenient to everything in this beautiful area of California.
The park is one of the cleanest and best landscaped I have ever visited. The current owner has only had it for two years and plans to expand some of the sites both in width and length, as well as add more pull-through sites.
This was my street during my stay in November, 2005. The sites are level gravel with a paved pad and a picnic table at each site.
Nice landscaping touches abound throughout the park with rose gardens, orange trees and cactus gardens co-existing peaceably.
This is a very restful place to sit with a beautiful stained glass window inside and a fragrant rose garden outside. Several covered group picnic tables are scattered throughout, also, making the grounds a nice place to visit and explore.
An immaculate pool area and hot tub is another nice touch. Here you can see the entrance to the clubhouse and to the side is a nice patio area with a ping-pong table. Wi-fi is available to all sites for a charge of $6.00/day or $15/week.
Malia's 2 cents: I visited with quite a few of the friendly residents here and all were lavish in their praise of the staff, the residents and facilities. One couple who had fulltimed for 12 years said they had never felt comfortable using RV park showers except this one. After my own inspection, I could see why. Besides the beautiful, quiet and restful surroundings, the entire grounds were sparkling clean, including the pool and spa, an especially nice touch. With a WalMart right across I-8 and Krispy Kreme donuts within 3 miles, what more could you ask for?
