Any other information that you would like to add: Campo isn't a bad place to live, just rural. Its main problem is its size and distance to "town". Campo is perfect for a quieter slower paced lifestyle that most single people are not interested in. We choose to live in Campo and only commute to town once or twice a week instead of a commuting from town 5-6 days a week. You are looking at a 30 minute commute from Alpine on I-8, and about an hour and 15 minutes or so from National City or Imperial Beach on HWY 94. Housing is typically less expensive in Campo.
