After long day of driving I-95, we kept seeing signs for South of the Border. By the time we got there we were so tired of the highway that we decided to try out their campground - Camp Pedro. We managed to get the last pull-thru site and even though it wasn't really a site (it was the end of the road with hookups) we had no problems pulling into it. There is no Cable TV, but they do get a few digital channels. Surprisingly, the WiFi was good. The buildings are really old, but clean. You need a gate key to get into the park, so you don't have to worry about people driving around after hours. We managed to walk the "town" from the campground. There is a lot of highway noise and plenty of trains to keep you awake too! Our only major problem was departing. There was no way we could drive out of our site because of the turn at the end. It was not for big rig fifth-wheels (which have a different turn ratio than motorhomes) and we had to back out of our site and actually into another site (thankfully it was empty) to make the turn to get out. It made our departure a little stressful - Esp. when a pickup truck came behind us while we were trying to back-up and he kept creeping along behind. I told him he could cut across an empty site to get around us because we were having trouble getting our big rig out. He then told me that he was the manager and padded his name tag. I not really sure what that meant, because he offered no assistance! He just kept following us and getting in our way. We wouldn't stay there again because it really isn't for big rig fifth-wheels.
