22 Parks near Coronado, California
Jun 2016 - $101.00
We have stayed at this bay side park several times and enjoyed each stay. The park is very busy this time of year and since a competing park in the area has closed, has become the only park in the area on the water. It appears they are pushing their rates to an all time high. While they can, one has to wonder if they are pricing themselves out of range of many campers. We discovered later they had not given any of several discounts we would have been eligible for, even through we are in their data base. Make sure you ask for any discount at time of check in and don't assume they will offer them.
The park itself is an older park and spaces are close together but separated by shrubbery so helps with privacy. Facilities are well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. Summer weather is perfect, which accounts for the park being near capacity much of the time. There is a good restaurant within walking distance and a number of other good restaurants in surrounding areas. RV repair and supply locations are also available in Chula Vista with several vendors who will do work at the resort.
A very nice resort with lots to do, but beware, you pay for it! We did enjoy our stay but will have to consider cost before future visits. - Old Detective

Cement pad for the RV. They were level. Had a pull-through, and it was long enough for the tow and our car. Hook-up worked well. Close to the Marina and park. Some people in other reviews talked about the noise from the park (public) but we did not hear any.
Close together but you are here to sightsee San Diego.
We will be back. - virginiagirl2015

This is a very nice RV Park near the Bay with great facilities. The only issue I have is that the price is way (way) too high for any RV Park. On top of the high price add $3.00 per night per dog and if you have two little pups (as we do) that can add up.
The place was more than half empty when we arrived and filled to between 2/3 and 3/4 for the weekend (a summer weekend). They would sell more spots during the week if they offered a 20% or so discount and deleted the dog fee (which is kind of ridiculous).
I got the feeling that the staff was happy with the high prices because it reduced their workload. Never saw a manager the 6 days I was there.
Still I will be going back because the weather along the coast is hard to beat and I have relatives in the area. - ATC Bill

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... - virginiagirl2015

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. - golferpatsy

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. - blowing weeds

This is a paved site on the ocean. The numbers starting with '1 are along the ocean front line, there are 3 more rows behind, but all very close to the beach. There is enough room for your motorhome, and one vehicle on each site. You cannot tent camp here. The beach is outstanding, and that is the only attraction. There are no programs, community areas, etc., here. The beach has a few firepits that people lay claim to early in the day. There is a free shuttle van to Coronado every 30 minutes: 9a-9p across the street. The attendants will not let you in 1 minute prior to 2pm, and will not let you line up, so park in the public lot till the time arrives. It is a fairly quiet park, except for the occasional party group. There are no trees, or picnic tables provided: so be prepared. You can only use a self-contained (kitchen, toilet) camper here. The do have power, water and sewer. Sites on the first and last row are back in. The center two rows are pull thru. Pets are ok on a 6 ft leash at all times. - kallee

As others have stated, the spaces are close together, but we had enough room to put both our slides out. There's a public restroom, but RV park guests aren't supposed to use it (but they do anyway). They're sticklers about check-in time (at least in the summer). The line starts building just before 2:00 and can take over an hour. There are four rows (100-400). The beach is only steps away with the 100 and 200 numbered spaces closest to the water - they're also the hardest to get. We were in the third row #303. We couldn't see the beach, but enjoyed the view of the bay. The last two rows in the park (spaces 300-400) hear cars from the main road that runs along the coast. Overall, this is good for enjoying the beach and mild weather (although it was really windy all 3 days we were there). You have to go into the town of Coronado, approximately 5 miles, to get food or supplies. There are also no fire rings or picnic tables at each site. - CoachCathy

We camped here because the park is about 1/2 mile away from family living in military housing, otherwise I would not have a reason to camp here as I am not a big beach person. But if it's your thing you are 'right on the sand' especially in the front row and you want a communal party atmosphere.
It is a glorified parking lot with everyone crammed in closely. I was just able to park my F250 parallel to my TT, folding the mirror in to avoid it being in the way of people going by in the other site.
The biggest problem as other people will attest to is the gates-locked-at-7pm madness. This completely prevents you from going into Coronado for dinner and night life unless you want a long bicycle ride there and back. Also makes check-in after 7 impossible.
The reason this is so is because the park is co-located with several large day-use parking lots, and rather than set it up properly so there is night time in and out for the RV park, they just close the whole thing off at night rather than pay for a night guard at the road entrance.
Noise: This is a noisy campground depending on where you are located and when you come there can be heavy road noise, and your neighbors up until quiet time at 10pm. The sodium vapor lamps also flood the lot until 10pm when they are thankfully shut off.
During the winter (just after thanksgiving) they build large sand berms to protect from the waves which blocks your view and also makes the road noise very loud compared to the ocean noise. Also in the winter the back rows of the park are also empty and there is nothing to block the very loud road noise from Silver Strand Blvd all night long. In the summer I suspect you can enjoy the ocean noise a lot more while having the road noise blocked out, but get a space as close to the beach as you can. The front row seems perpetually sold out.
The place is safe and family friendly, lots of kids on bicycles and other conveyances. Portable wood fire pits are popular. - Steam Gypsie

Way over priced! Mostly full timers with the usual accumulation of stuff. Web site looks good but prepare to be disappointed. Tight spaces and roads. Close to freeway with traffic noise. WIFI requires sign in every 4 hours with a new code. We were in an unlevel gravel pull thru site with no cable TV (cable was mangled and unusable). Only one water spigot and we had to disconnect the full timer using it so we could use it. We were told to back out of our pull through site and go the wrong way on a one way street when leaving because the marked exit had tight turns. Check-in clerk was new and didn't advise us of WIFI procedures and seemed unsure about our assigned site (entry and exit). We will not stay here again unless it is a last resort. - fun4doc

LOTS of full time residents. Streets are so tight that I was told to back our 40' motorhome out of my pull-through and go out a one way street the wrong way. Good AT&T signal, good water pressure, good power. Lots of dogs and cats running around off leash. Lots of police presence while I was there. The manager could not have been nicer to deal with. - walt66

The staff at the park were friendly and helpful when they could be. The park is very crowded. We were lucky to get a large pull through site. The majority of sites are permanent residents who have collected a great deal of junk over time. The main complaint was the very poor maintenance of the laundry facilities. They have 8 washers and dryers, and while we were there a total of 3 were operational. It was made worse by some using coins and some using a special card. This was a real inconvenience. Rate was with PA discount. - lrp374

This campground is pretty old and in need of lots of updating. The worst part was there are no standards enforced for the condition of the RVs that could stay there. There was one guy living out of a cargo trailer, drinking beer at 9:00 AM and leaving his outside radio running all day, even when he was not there. Other permanent RVs were in bad shape, very old and lots of junk laying around and under them. One RV actually burned to the ground while we were there. There is only cellular coverage, AT&T and Verizon, where many of the permanent trailers and RVs park. They do have good WiFi you can purchase for $25 for two weeks but that does not solve the voice issue unless you can get the voice over WiFi to work. It is fairly close to San Diego, and the price is low. I don't think I would stay here again. - Retiring in 2016

First let me say, the staff was amazing! They actually saved my trip, but I can't help but think, what if I had not been so lucky? I'm trying to keep this short... There must be a way for sites to be assigned so you know what you're getting before you arrive. To be told you have to go to a spot without full hookups (North campground, which is a total dump) and then go on a waiting list for what you thought you already had, is absurd! If no full hookup spots are available I could decide to come another time, if I know. With the current process, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise, that can ruin your trip! It's a very nice location, just needs some maintenance with the weeds and landscaping. Also, allow guest to select sites when they book! BTW... I'm not just making this review because I prefer to glamp... Even "Glamper Dude" can enjoy a little "outdoorishness"! I got lucky and got a nice spot. With a little maintenance and landscaping it would've been extremely nice! But what if I had to go on that waitlist, like my friend! The location is easy to access and easy to maneuver almost any size rig. The spots are not paved (at least none of the spots that are not for lease). Each spot has a gravel and dirt base. If they extended the paved spots to each of the trailer spots, immediate 2.0 upgrade! The hookups, if you're lucky enough to get a full hookup site, are conveniently placed and easy to back into. They were doing work on the electrical and sewer while we were there, which was a big inconvenience for our trip, but will probably add improvements for future guests. As I mentioned, the sites are nice, however the ones along the outside are better. The ones on the inner circle are back to back to other trailers and fairly close together. The sites on the outside rim back up to the mountain and in the evening present a very nice view. Various wildlife to include coyotes, tarantulas, and many flying insects that could leave you with quite a bump! All said, I would definitely go back but only if I'm assured that I will be on the southside and in one of the outside rim sites. - Glamper Dude

This is a great campground except that cell phone and internet for Verizon is not available. About 10 miles down the road you can get it. Park is clean and management is very helpful. There are free standing barbecue grills at each spot. We were there for the hot rod show and it was very nice. Even with no phone or internet we would go back again. - rolling homeless

This is a older park with small narrow spaces. Looking around the park you don't see many newer RV's I have a 38 foot with 4 slides and barely got it into the spot. Unhook your car before heading to your space as the narrow roads and turns make it very tight. Bring your own Internet or pay $4.00 a day for internet uses. Over priced at $80.00 dollars. - Diceman1036

The rate is based on monthly. There was good reception for Verizon 4g. We did not try the wifi. There is a lot of full time residents that live in the park. The bathrooms are cleaned daily. The laundry was the most expensive of any place we have ever stayed. There is a nice pool and gym at the park. The maintenance does a good at trying to keep the grounds looking nice. At night there is security patrolling the park. One of the nice things about the park is that it is easy to get around San Diego from its location. There is a Tram stop outside the back gate. Over all the park is older, but is a great place to see San Diego from. - Lost Traveler

This park is very close to the freeway. So close there is quite a bit of road noise. This is probably why they only allow RVs (no tents). It is also very near a San Diego Trolley stop (Green Line). You get a special key that gives you access to the bathrooms, pool, jacuzzi, and gate that goes to the trolley stop. The pool and jacuzzi were clean and very warm. My kids loved the pool. There is no playground. The sites seem to be mostly permanent residents. The folks are nice and the campground was clean and tidy. Our site (99) was a back-in level gravel pad for the RV with a concrete area next to it. No fire rings and no picnic table. The sites are quite close to each other. The location is very convenient for seeing the sites of San Diego. - kirkcrawford

If you're looking for a quiet getaway, this is NOT the place to be! (LOL) This is a family park with MANY kids running around and it can be loud. But it's an extremely well run and organized park. Yes, it's pricey but it's right on Mission Bay, some of the most expensive real estate in the USA. The beach is great. Rent boats or other water toys. You're packed in but they are VERY well organized. I had plenty of room for my slideouts and my awning. Lots of activities for young and old. Very clean. - LEB2

We have been coming here for about 5 years and have already made our reservation for the following year. We really enjoy this campground for the beach, the bay, the location and that is why we continue to return. It is right on Mission Bay, only 5 minutes to Pacific Beach, close to shopping, right on the bike trail and close to anything you want to do in San Diego. The sites are level and the hook-ups are easy. The bathrooms are always clean although there are leaves in the sites. The internet was fine but not high-speed. The whole park could use a bit of freshening up like paint but for a beachfront park, this is pretty good. Someone said there were rats but we have never seen rats nor lots of insects in the 7 months over the 5 years we have been here. The price above reflects the monthly rate. We have stayed here and will definitely stay again. Others continue to return year after year and we look forward to seeing our neighbors again. - swike

I have heard about Campland On The Bay for over 20 years and this was our first visit. We only stayed one night. It is in a beautiful location on Mission Bay in San Diego. From what I saw of the campsites, I was a little disappointed. It amounted to very little more than an asphalt parking lot with hook-ups and some surrounding trees and grassy areas. For the price, I would have expected a whole lot more. But, that said, people go there to enjoy the waters of Mission Bay instead of sitting idly at camp. - ArmandV

The hookups all worked well. The wifi was excellent (when it worked). The campground is on the San Duego Bay. The sites are concrete pad with a picnic table. Only water front sites are allowed fires. The staff is only there to collect money. Don't expect anything useful in advice or help from those ladies. $35 for a military campsite is high. - Melodycthomas

Great park the spaces are larger than most and easy to get into. The staff is helpful lots of kids which we do not mind. The pads are level and large we put out our slides and awning and had room to park our car. - Gilbert & Gail
Nov 2014 - $35.00
This park has been recently renovated and is now a top-notch RV park. All sites have 50 amp full hook-ups and level, concrete pads. There is plenty of space between sites but no trees. The view is of the marina and the bay and the waterfront are literally 10 feet from the water. Coronado, a few miles north, has lots of excellent shops and galleries and many high-end restaurants. It's a great place to spend some time, with easy access to the entire San Diego area. We'll be back. - steben6

Park has easy access. Just off Interstate 8. Site was just right for us since we were only here 4 nights so we could visit San Diego. Everyone was friendly and site was easy to enter. Sites are close but we were only there during the evenings. All good hook-ups and with Passport it was a great value for California campgrounds. We would stop here again if in the area. We had a site but was told to park our tow in the site behind our site. - belanga
Feb 2015 - $26.00
Staff are professional, helpful, and no nonsense. Sites are close together, but park is very, very, quiet, especially in the back. The grounds are well kept, we felt safe and secure there, most of the campers appear to be residents, but we found them friendly and respectful, provided that they were shown respect. We had "no regrets", having said that, the electricity provider has a 4 tier billing system, NO FAULT OF OAK CREEK RV PARK, so watch your electricity consumption if you are staying 1 month or longer. We would definitely return for another visit. $26.00/night rate is based on a 1 month stay. - User3357
Dec 2014 - $51.00
This park is old and tired. The bathrooms were somewhat clean, but quite old in style and fixtures. The pool was OK, the spa jets were broken and over a week we didn't see anyone out to fix them. The sites are paved but are not level and are very narrow (20-22'). The WiFi service was not free and even after purchasing a separate package, the WiFi hardware was down every morning coming up when the staff rebooted the hardware. The staff was friendly and helpful. For being a Sunland resort, I would have expected more. I cannot recommend this park. - gypsy parrotheads

Make sure you have directions to campground because it's hard to find. PPA was only good for 2 of 4 nights. Very tight, but level sites. Train & I-5 noise. Nice pool & spa. Lots of long terms. Doesn't deserve resort name. - russ1102
Feb 2016 - $50.00
If you like freeway noise on one side of a park and train noise on the other than this park is for you! Sites are narrow and the freeway noise is awful! Train not so bad since they are fast Amtrak trains, not a lot of whistle blowing. Laundry room was clean but had to purchase a card to operate the machines. $5.00 deposit was refunded when card was returned. Park is located in a canyon with a lovely name, Rose Canyon, but this spot is not lovely. we left after 4 nights and moved to another park in the area that was cheaper and a much better environment. - Rick & Karen

We booked for a month and regretted it the entire time. Dog run is next to drainage / stream which is posted "beware of snakes", so dont let your dog loose. The same area is riddled with poison oak, so again, dont let your dog loose. Lots of dirt, pads are concrete, street is asphalt. Large percentage of full time residents with large amounts of "stuff" outside. Think sanford and son. We have picked up 2 grocery bags of droppings, as the park and owners of the dogs dont clean up after themselves. This park is way over priced. - ontheroadallthetime
