Rate reflects highest rate charged during our week stay with KOA discount. We were also charged two other rates. I really have an issue with rate increases on weekends. First impressions: this park has way too many cabins of every configuration for rent. This really swells the population on the weekends and makes a tight park even tighter. Since they rent all kinds of crazy bikes, there were oodles of kids zipping around the park, cutting through empty sites and dodging people walking around. After it emptied out on Sunday, the park was much more pleasant. Our site (1516) is considered a preferred plus site and was long enough for 35' coach & tow car. However site was not very wide & was somewhat cramped with picnic table. No privacy hedge between sites but small patch of grass. Very close to neighbor. These sites are at the back of the park with an interior road behind & then a fenced in rv storage area. Was glad to be back there out of the busy fray of the main area of the park. Very tight interior roads; took some maneuvering to exit since many sites have parking for vehicles in the road. Very fastidious landscaping crew; always attending to the greenery. Shower stalls show wear & tear but were clean, tiled and adequate. Have to leave shower & go into restroom to blow dry hair. Pool was dirty with leaves and threadbare loungers. Mixed feelings on whether we'd return, but maybe after construction is complete we would try again. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

In San Diego, take 2hr Harbor Cruise with Hornblower Cruises. Buy tics on Groupon & only 29. for two. Nice comfortable huge boats with comfy seating. Try Sorrento in Little Italy for excellent thin crust pizza.

For a family weekend, this park has everything and they are adding more if that were even possible. The staff is great and the location is convenient. That is the good. As with most southern California campgrounds, they are expensive and packed, especially over the weekends. The WiFi worked better in some sections of the campground than others due to hotspot locations, the local TV was better than the cable. The color coded stripes on the road is a great idea in the daylight but can be hard to distinguish if you arrive after dark. Likewise the site numbers are painted on the street in most cases and can't be seen in the dark, especially if the street is wet. Cars are often parked over the numbers. Some back-in sites can be challenging. Some of the trees drip sticky sap on the cars and make a mess of the windows until cleaned off. Sprinklers run overnight. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed for about a week, beautiful campground with friendly, helpful staff. The only thing I would change is to have grass in the dog park rather than eucalyptus shavings. Hard to play fetch with her mouth full of debris. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall this was a nice KOA. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend and the campground was completely full. It was tight navigating through the park with our 42 foot rig. It would've helped in the staff assisted us to the site. The roads are very narrow and some campers vehicles or the back of their rigs were over the edge of their road. It was very stressful parking and pulling out. The jumping pillows were nice and very popular for the kids. The Wifi didn't work very well. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

If you have kids this is the place, lots of kids having fun. Hard to maneuver big rig, cars parked out in road and all over and you have to watch for kids too. We laughed you saw lots of kids and few adults.
Nothing special might stay here again. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is very clean! They are out every morning using vacuums to clean all the leaves up and cutting the grass! Yes you are close to each other, but its California people. Everything is close together.

They have plenty to do for the kids in this park. They are expanding and making a bigger pool area next year and they need it, the 10 days we were here it was always busy.

If in San Diego we will be staying here again... We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the San Diego KOA in May. The check-in was fast the young person at the counter was friendly and helpful. We had a deluxe site with a patio, table and firepit. The sites are close together but not to bad. We had grass and the sites are all paved or have concrete to park on. The interior can be a little tight so you must be careful and because many of the sites are short vehicles park in designated spots in the roadway. The park was not full while we were there so it was pretty quite, but do expect helicopters from the Navy base to fly over all day and night and they are quite loud. If you have kids there are lots of things for them to do. There is a lot of shopping in the area. The Midway museum and other sites are only about 20 minutes away. The park was very clean and all utilities worked well. price paid was good for the area. We will return. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here with our RV group. We had to move after the first night as we were bombarded with bird droppings. The crows woke most of us up at 4:00 AM most mornings with an horrendous chorus of cawing. This campsite is not in the best of neighborhoods but if you want to tour San Diego is convenient. We certainly will not return to this campsite. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Pricey, corporate owned, very large campground, but it served our purpose. It had that corporate feel to it, but there's also an advantage in that: amenities abound. They include a nice playground, sandbox, bikes to rent, pool, hot tub, nice little cafe, and barbecue grills and fire rings are available at no extra charge. The campground was conveniently located close to shopping and restaurants. Most of the sites were shaded by trees and were paved, but some leveling was necessary. Hookups were convenient. Some highway noise but it was tolerable. The flight of numerous military helicopters flying over at all hours of the day and night was not. Wi fi (Tengo) and cable TV are offered but inadequate. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Remains one of the finest RV parks in the country. Park has a professional and most supportive staff. We felt welcome. Facility is clean and well maintained. There was plenty of space for entrancing and exiting with our 31' trailer. We enjoyed the many facilities. Evenings at the cafe were a nice social event, and we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with many others kampers. We had several Amazon packages delivered, and the office quickly notified us of the arrival. The dog park has two large sections, and the park provides bags. The entire park is a great place to take long walks. Tengo WiFi is available, but, as we find at most parks, it is slow and hard to connect. We enjoyed using the gas grill in the Kamper Kitchen. For the first time when visiting, more than once, we got a strong odor of sewer gas at our site as there was a system vent close by. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Amazed at the number of staff dedicated to cleaning and maintenance. Very clean park. Doesn't seem like the park is in a very good area but inside felt perfectly safe. Pool and hot tub open year round and until 10 pm. Plenty to do for kids inside the park and beaches aren't more than 15 or 20 minute drive. We came to relax so didn't do sea world or anything like that. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park! Our site was reasonably level with with lots of grass between us and our neighbors. There are mature eucalyptus trees providing shade throughout the park, and tons of amenities. The owners had placed holiday decorations throughout the park, making it very festive. We only stayed one night and didn't have time to enjoy this place fully, but next time we are in San Diego we will plan to stay a little longer. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

We were really not excited to stay in "metro" San Diego but landed here at the last minute due to a schedule change in our vacation and there were limited options available in the area. But what a surprise this place was. So clean, great sites with lovely well manicured grass, nice amount of space (but I would not call is spacious) and it's HUGE! But we asked to be away from the "kid" areas and the size of this place was really no big deal. Lots of activity in the evening as people came back from their daily adventures but nothing that bothered us. We enjoyed walking around every evening to see what people were up to. There is a lot of traffic noise as it is literally just off the freeway but if you can get past that this is a really cool place! We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Maneuvering a big rig is a little tight in this park especially since they allow cars to park on the streets. It was so tight that when leaving we had to back out of our pull-through.
We were assured our 40 foot motor home with tow would have no problem fitting into the first pull-through sight we were assigned. We had to unhook the tow and park it sideways to fit and even then, we took up every inch of the space. We asked to move to a longer space and the staff was very accommodating. The large, mature trees are great for shade but block satellite reception in most sites. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.
