Pio Pico RV Resort & Campground

If a vacation in the sun is at the top of your to-do list, California is an excellent place to rent an RV - if it isn’t, then it should be. Finding a motorhome rental near Pio Pico RV Resort & Campground means that you can join in all the fun to be had in this park, such as showing off your skills in the horseshoe pit, going for a swim in the pool, or playing sports like volleyball, basketball, and mini-golf. And that’s far from everything that you’ll get when camping at Pio Pico Resort & Campground - there are also a picnic and barbeque area, a playground, and tournaments, bingo, and arts & crafts. Your main problem will be to find the time to explore the whole RV campground.That is, when you’re not doing some hiking on the trails winding through the fantastic surrounding nature. Or perhaps you’d like to check out the ballroom, where you can put on and celebrate your own special event? If you prefer something more low-key, there’s satellite TV with several channels, and you can pop into the store to stock up on snacks or have a meal in the on-site restaurant. Want to bring your pooch? No problem, at this Jamul campground, pets are welcome - there’s even a dog park.Not that you’ll want to spend all your time at the RV park - what’s the point in camping with a motorhome rental if you do that? No, you don’t want to miss amazing San Diego with all its culture, history, and beaches, and the city of Chula Vista (meaning "beautiful view") is also just a short ride from that RV rental of yours. Even closer is the small, charming town of Jamul - and you can even go on day trips to Mexico. If you’re happy staying closer to your Pio Pico Resort & Campground camping site, the outstanding nature surrounding you will not disappoint.

The Great Outdoors

Anyone who gets an RV rental near Pio Pico RV Resort & Campground and also likes water sure is in luck: the gorgeously scenic Lower Otay Lake is under five minutes' drive away. Here you can try your luck catching largemouth bass, bluegill, or white crappie (and many more) from your rented boat - and you know the waters will be good because Lower Otay Lake is where the Olympic training center for rowing sports is located. If you managed to catch some dinner, there are tables and barbecues in the picnic area.If the picturesque Lower Otay Lake isn’t quite big enough, then how about the great, majestic Pacific Ocean? That, too, is very easy to get to if you book an RV in San Diego County. Go enjoy the white, sandy beaches, swim or surf in the blue water, or just work on your tan - with sunscreen, of course. For some endangered yet beautiful nature, you can visit Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, where you’ll find not only beaches, but dunes, salt marsh, riparian, and upland habitats, too.Should you yearn for the fresh, crisp mountain air, then heading toward Cuyamaca Rancho State Park is a fantastic option. The views of (and from) the peaks are astounding; you’ll hike on trails running through the forest with leafy trees and beautiful wildflowers, and there are a whole bunch of birds that the bird-watcher could cross of their list. Would you rather see other animals? That’s fine because they’re around too. Just remember not to get too mesmerized by the waterfalls, or you might miss them.

Exploring the Area

Do you ever wonder how people on TV (or social media) manage to sit down with a glass of red wine in their hand, a light breeze in their hair, feeling totally and completely relaxed, without a worry in the world? Here’s the secret: they’re all Jamul campers, visiting the local vineyards. Try the delicious wines, learn all about the grapes, and just sit back in the Spanish-style rooms and patios. Now that is how you relax!Are you ready for the action? Well, hop into your campervan rental and head to Chula Vista. Here you can soak in culture in the shape of art, music, and theater; you can visit attractions like waterparks and discovery centers for the coastal life, or you can visit the coast itself. You can find all sorts of food, much of which is inspired by the sea and proximity to Mexico, and yes, of course, you can get a steak.So, are you ready for your Jamul camping vacation? Good, start looking right now.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
