The Thousand Trails RV campground near San Diego is recovering Tuesday after heavy rain washed out access roads and flooded campers forced rescues.
TV Video of the Pio Pico Resort And RV Camp in Jamul Monday showed the entire campground area was submerged including vehicles and roadways, which caused some major access problems for the hundreds who live and camp there.
“The river bank on the other side must have been forty feet wide,” said George Curtis. “When it was hitting the side of the truck it was halfway up the doors.”
San Diego County public works crews were working to release some of that water. The campground and its residents are now trying to deal with their current situation, and although it’s been a long 24 hours, people like George will continue to use their 4×4 vehicles to help other residents get to and from their homes across the high waters.
Pio Pico campground was expected to remain inaccessible until Thursday or until the waters recede.
