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.

Tips for other Campers:

All the San diego tourist areas are easy to get to from the park

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Stay further back in park, away from office and closer to main bathhouse, to reduce road noise.

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.

We stay here for 3 weeks in June & July, including over the 4th of July weekend, and occupied 2 different sites. 50 Amp site, weekday rate was $78, 30 Amp site weekday rate $73, 30 Amp weekend rate $78, and 30 Amp 4th of July Holiday rate $83. WiFi was iffy. A lot of children of all ages and teenagers were staying at the park; some of whom operated rental bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc carelessly, putting people and property in danger. The park offers plenty of activities for kids. It is conveniently located. Road noise was not an issue. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drove into Mexico. It took over 2 hours in wait time to cross back into the USA.

Good park and location for exploring SD. Level site with good water, elec, sewer. Wifi worked well with laptop but difficult to access on Ipad (might be operator error!). Quiet at night with some noise starting with rush hour in the mornings. Adequate room to manuever although a little tight with a big rig. Laundry room easy to use. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed 5 nights. Park is large, well laid out, with good sized concrete patios, trees, and a grass area between the sites. Grass is watered every night and you are warned not to leave your belongings on the grass area - actually the spray extends to the concrete patio area too. The park is just south of San Diego so it is relatively close to the attractions and beaches. There is a grocery store relatively close by (a 10 minute walk). Even though the cost to stay seems high relative to other RV parks in the country, when one compares to other parks in the San Diego area, the price is somewhat less than the norm. I would concur with a previous reviewer who stated that purchasing a KOA membership card is well worth it. This park has lots of activities for the children so it is a great place for the family - and this is likely reflected in the pricing. While the wireless is free, it can be frustratingly slow especially when the park filled up on the weekend. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is really nice with trees and grass between the sites. We have a small trailer, and we had a wonderful spot on one of the ends. The park is close to the attractions of San Diego (10 minute drive to most things), and we loved the fact that the park felt remote and yet it was close to the grocery store since we inevitably forget something critical. This park was worth the price, and I recommend grabbing the KOA discount card. We camped at San Diego Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Grocery store within walking or biking distance. Drive to North Park area to get a great dinner one night!
