We stayed in San Diego area for 4 days and needed a spot to use to get to the attractions. This is right off I-8 and very busy, crowded facility, we moved in Sunday before Labor Day, all back in spots and very tight fit. While clean and neat, there appeared to be many permanent residents. Cable and WiFi worked great once we had the converter boxes. We were pleasantly suprized at how quiet with all the crowd in the facility. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Some good sites, some not so good. Lots of permanent or semi permanent guests. Excellent access to the electric trolley system which we used extensively. Noisy neighbors apparently doing car maintenance 3 days in a row. Would probably not stay here again. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is not what I would call a resort by any stretch of the imagination. There are two sides to this park. The gated side which is very clean and nice and the ungated side which is not, but that is where the pool and amenities are. If you stay on the good side you have to walk out the gate and down the frontage road 100 yards to get to the office and pool. You are right on Highway 8 so traffic noise is high. The non gated side (where our first site was supposed to be) is run down and has a lot of perm residents with some units in ill repair. The gated side is mostly transient big rigs and longer term folks who take very good care of their sites. It is also secure which is important because this is not the greatest of neighborhoods. Roads are tight coming in through an older neighborhood. Alavarado is a very narrow frontage road and the entrances are narrow and unmarked as well. This is a very expensive park for what you get. Sites are small and tight for the most part but there are a few that have grassy areas. Good utilities. No cable on the gated side. The SD Trolley (rail) is nearly in the complex so if you want to visit parts of San Diego via trolley you can go almost anywhere and even to Tijuana for a few dollars.San Diego has generally poor and overpriced RV options. We lived here for 10 years so you pretty much take what you can get. This is not a bad stay at all if you are on the gated side and don't care about the pool. Otherwise I would pass. At $90 per night it matches the most expensive rate we have had on this 6,000 mile trip. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights. We got in very late - close to 1:30 am, and they had a night guard on duty to show us to our spot. Very pretty park. Our kids enjoyed the pool. Wi-Fi worked great. The laundry closes at 10 pm, which wasn't convenient for us. Perhaps the best feature is that it is right next door to a San Diego trolley stop, which we were able to take to the San Diego Zoo. I would stay here again. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The best thing about this park is it’s on the San Diego Trolley line with its own gate to the station; the bad thing is it’s next to I-8. We had one of two pull-through sites, gravel parking was good with a cement patio and nice grass area. The BAD thing is people with dogs used the other pull-through site and its nice grassy area as the general potty stop for their dogs. NO ONE in the park said anything to them about it and for this reason I would not use this park again. No animal control at all, NONE. If you do have dogs learn to respect others. Other than this it's a nice park to use to visit San Diego. We stay 4 nights and used the trolley with a 4 day pass. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Older park split into two separate areas. THE GOOD: The grounds are kept well. Facilities and pool clean. Sites are shaded and fairly level gravel. Premium pull-through sites have patio and grass. Paved roads. Staff helpful and courteous. Fifteen minutes from Sea World, the harbor, the beaches and La Jolla. Water and power are good and pedestal close. Very good cable TV. Freeway access is good at the West end (Lake Murray Blvd), but very bad at the East end (Alvarado Rd exit-avoid this exit if you're a big rig) THE BAD: Freeway noise is hideous. RV's are packed in at every angle. Tight squeeze for big rigs if you're not in a pull-through. Lots of permanent residents with old rigs and junk piled up around them. No designated pet area, altho they do provide clean up bags. We were told by other folks not to leave anything unlocked when away from rig. Prices for premium sites way to high for this old park. You have to pay extra for Tengo internet access, which should have been included at premium price. If we come to San Diego again, we'll look around for another park. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very tight park. We had a premium back in site, which is the only one that would accommodate a 45' motorhome. We still had to park our toad on the street as our coach filled up the site. This is a marginal park for big rigs. It is tough turning into the park and getting through the gate without rubbing the side with bushes unless you swing way wide into the oncoming traffic lane. The park is split into the zones separated by a water feature. So if you are in the eastern part of the park, and you want to use the pool and amenities, you must go out the gate, walk down the busy road and into the main park. The one thing this park has is convenience. Close to the 8 freeway and close to the light rail. They give you 4 consecutive hours of Tengo internet free, then you pay. An okay park with a lot of caveats. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 5 months. Loved the location, close to everything and trolley was very convenient. Grounds are kept up extremely well, nice pool area, adequate exercise room. No "large screen" TV in conference room though (it's been stolen twice!). Also, my bike was stolen within first couple of days we were there. Supposedly soliciting not allowed, but we were approached twice, after office hours - felt a bit creepy about that. Very close to I-8, but we thought of the noise as a waterfall, so it really didn't bother us. Not much of a dog area; they do provide doggie bags, which was handy and appreciated, though often all boxes were empty (we think other campers cleaned them out). If U.S. Mail delivery is too large for mailbox, they "leave a slip in your mailbox" - we had numerous such deliveries, but only twice was a slip left in our mailbox; had to go into office and ask. Once I was even told that we didn't have a package, only to have my husband go back in and yes, we did! Management was nice enough, but seemed a bit haphazard; their favorite comment was "sorry about that" - which felt less than sincere. Very nice that they occasionally have dinners, although found each one we attended to be very unorganized and awkward. All in all a nice park and we would go back, but don't expect too much from the office staff (and the guy at the front desk could use some customer service training). We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Crowded, lay out confusing, site numbers hard to see/understand. Very clean laundry. Close to “Trolly” to shopping and downtown. Rate reflects Passport America. Will stay again when in the area. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We selected to stay here based on the location. While the park is right on the I8, and there is road noise, we’d return because of the location. We were fortunate to have a site with shade and concrete pad (not all sites have this). The park is kept up well and the staff were helpful. There is a fee for the internet. The rate we paid reflects the monthly rate we paid. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice level site, cement patio and a little grass or bushes at each site. Staff was very friendly. Only get 4 hours of Tangonet internet for free even though we stayed here for 4 days. Verizon MiFi worked well. Price reflects PA discount. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.
