We came down to Pechanga RV park for a Father's Day weekend getaway.
In a nutshell, it was a nice, clean campground with reasonable amenities but I probably wouldn't stay more than a weekend.
The campground is green and lush with lots of grass and shade trees. Sites are all large concrete pads so parking & leveling is a breeze.
The restrooms and showers were clean and tidy.
We were provided with a list of cable TV channels, but we didn't even bother hooking up the TV.
As others's have mentioned, we found the wifi sketchy, but workable. I saw the wifi antenna directly across from our site so the signal was great but the kids had to keep re-logging in on their ipads every 20-30 minutes or so. I was able to watch hulu on my tablet without too much buffering so, in all, it worked ok for light use.
We stayed in E-23, which is a premium site (meaning it is slightly larger than the other sites and has a table).
They require a $10.00 deposit for the card key to access the restrooms, showers and pool area. For some odd reason, they require exact change and get a bit snooty about making change for you (I was told they would break my $20.00 as a "one time courtesy"...here's an idea...there's a casino next door, have them stick a few more 10's in the register every morning). Other than that the service was fine.
The spa was out of service when we were there so that was disappointing. The pool was clean but a bit on the small side. Also, one more restriction here. RV Guests can only use the RV pool. The hotel pool is only for hotel guests; again a bit of a disappointment especially given that the spa was broken.
There is a convenient shuttle bus that will take you directly from your site to the front door of the casino and back again, or it is a short walk over there.
The restaurants there were quite good and, in all we had a very good time.
The kids had a good time riding skateboards with other kids at the park but there isn't much else for anyone under 21 to do
