We were a little hesitant about staying here. We’ve driven down I-95 for years and have always considered the South of the Border complex to be nothing more than a tourist trap. Well, we were wrong. We found it to be wonderful.
Camp Pedro is a terrific overnight stop for anyone traveling the I-95 corridor. It’s a quick and easy I-95 on/off. Sites are comfortably large, level and paved, with many pull thrus, The campground has large, mature trees that provide sites with plenty of shade. The restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained during our visit. Their general store has a good selection of camping essentials too. The campground is just a short walk from several restaurants… from fast food to casual. All campers have access to a very nice indoor pool complex at the adjacent motel. There are also several gas stations nearby.
I was pleasantly surprised with Camp Pedro, despite the tackiness of South of the Border. Very reasonable prices too… less than $25 for the night.
We stopped there twice this summer coming/going to Florida and agree completely. They must have new owners or managers as the place is actually nice and very secure. It’s definitely our place to stop over. We also enjoyed the steakhouse and ice cream shop.
