Date of Stay: February, 2010
This campground has two sections to it, separated by a main road. It's north and south side. I don't remember which is which but one side has full hookups the other does not. Families staying extended may stay on the partial hookups side, but singles/couples may stay either side. Which is pretty much a standard thing here in San Diego. Kids are like unwanted pests or something and only allowed certain areas to be in. Aside from being a bitter parent, but that's not just this park it's been every park. Really we preferred the side with partial hookups. Much prettier, great play areas, open fields, large spaces, convent to dump station and restroom/showers. So, I'm not really complaining about having to stay on this side at all, I'm just saying it'd be nice to have had the option. Great dog run area. Plenty of hiking trails. Super friendly staff!! We have really enjoyed our stay here. The price is unbeatable. We bought a membership, but since you get a certain amount of time free before you pay for your spot our membership fees have already been made up for. So that's pretty cool and totally worth it in my opinion. The Wi-Fi is only is designated areas and painfully slow. But it's free. Cell phone reception is spotty, and we've found AT&T has better coverage than others out here but that's still spotty but usually not accessible. We think it's super for families and families with pets. You can really unwind, relax, enjoy your stay here. No crazy strict rules or regulations. Just your basic common sense stuff. I've heard others complain about the look of the other campers RVs, you know what, I'm not here to admire the RV view, I'm here to unwind, relax, be enjoy the natural views and areas. There are run down RV's out here, also some super fine motorhomes. I personally think it's a great thing that a family can come and camp with whatever they can afford to camp in, they don't have to be rich and purchase some new or fancy rig to be able to take their family for weekend trips! OK,well I could go on, I think this park just has it's priorities and attitude right on!! Relax, unwind, be you. We also like the very small Jamul community. I don't care for the big city busy life so this is close enough and still gives me less traffic and still convenient stores. It's pretty close to San Diego, just a little drive so convenient to all San Diego amenities. It's South East of San Diego.

The only cons I can think of here are smaller spots & all concrete. No landscaping. Lots of rules but that seems to be the norm here in the city. We stayed here just at a month and I don't' remember the rates we payed but it was reasonable with San Diego averages. Pros--LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mission Bay area! Beautiful park, playgrounds, walking/sidewalks, very close to a HUGE dog park (fiesta island dog park--it's amazing!). Super convenient location, right there at Sea World, my husband and son rode their bicycles to the Sea World parking lot. The RV park itself doesn't offer much, but due to the location and being close to a fabulous park makes up for that. In the summers a pool would probably be great, but since we were here in "winter" it didn't' bother us to not have one. We liked this location and would definitely stay here again. Great Wi-Fi, nice and fast.Bathrooms were decent but we use our 5th wheels facilities anyway so that's not a biggie for us.
