Alpine Springs RV Park

We stayed at Alpine Springs RV Park from January 7th, 2019 to January 21st, 2019 while we prepared for our trip down the Baja to La Paz to visit friends.

When I made the reservation I was told to check in at Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park that is located across the road. The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians owns Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park, Viejas Casino and Resort and now they have purchased Alpine Springs RV Park.

The rv park is an older park, built in the 1960s and the services look it. To get in you must have a key card to open the one gate to access the facility.

The pool hasn’t been maintained for a long time.

The laundry while economical, $1.00 for wash or dry, they are located on the other side of the park.

The spot to park the 5th wheel was gravel and level but the trees and bushes had no been maintained for a long time which made it difficult to position the 5th wheel properly. There is room to park your vehicle along side. The sewer was located uphill which ment the drain hose would not empty properly. There is no cable TV but you can hit the antenna for San Diego for over the air reception. There is NO WiFi and going to the “library” at Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park is not much better, very cramped. I made use of the Starbucks in Alpine.

We also used their storage facilities located across Willow Road at Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park to store our 5th wheel while we went down the Baja.

When we returned we stayed at the Viejas Casino and Resort for one night so we could pick up the 5th wheel in the morning and head to our next destination.

Overall for the price it was ok but I probability won’t stay there again as not having WiFi was a problem for me. Staying at Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park is not an option as they require you to stay at Alpine for at least a month before they will let you into Ma-Tar-Awa RV Park, this is not mentioned on their website.

As I mentioned Alpine has a Starbucks and a good restruant to go to is Janet’s Montana Cafe. We went there for breakfast and dinner and both were good.
