PALA, California - The new Pala RV Resort in Northern San Diego County, California has won four Gold Awards as Best RV Resort and Best Campground Resort for 2016 by the readers of Trailer Life and Motorhome magazines respectively in both publications’ 2016 Reader’s Polls.
The Gold Awards were announced by the editors and posted on their web sites.

"The RV Resort opened last May and immediately scored a perfect 10/10/10 rating from Good Sam. RV Resort visitors can keep busy by swimming in the heated pool or soaking in one of two spas. Or they can take advantage of the five barbecue grill areas, table tennis, horseshoe pit or fenced dog park. There is also a billiard table, card tables, three flat-screen TVs and a laundromat on site.”
