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.

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.

Tight, close, sites. Very expensive. Paved sites and roads. Good electric, good water, great pool. Road noise is bad as we needed no AC running for the night we were there. If all the sites were full, we would have had no place to park the toad. I would stay again, but I would look around first. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is well maintained, RV sites are concrete and large enough (we had a premium back-in site for a 29ft RV), management is friendly and it is very close from the trolley station 70th street. Unfortunatelly, it has some drawbacks that is why I do not rate it over 6 that are: 1) It is very close from the freeway I-8 and unless using the A/C all night (because it covers the noise), you will have the noise of the cars 2) Although being close from a trolley station, it is still far from downtown (about 20 minutes to Old Town), plus extra 10 to 15 to go to seaport Village for instance. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park, facilities were spotless and the people running it were great. But way too close to freeway for us. Lots of freeway noise. Stayed one night. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for the weather. Not too far east so it doesn't get too hot and not too far west so it doesn't get a lot of marine layer. It is right next to interstate 8, but for me the traffic noise became white noise after a while and didn't bother me at all. Sites were clean and not too close together. Pool and jacuzzi were nice. Staff was friendly and professional. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Despite its age, this is a very nice park. Although, it was obviously built before the evolution of “big rigs”, it has plenty sites that will accommodate 40+ ft. / quad slide coaches. The layout in the older section is a bit weird. It appears that the original designers were trying to avoid the parking lot look. However, it works. The facilities are clean and it has all of the required amenities; pool, spa, exercise room, meeting rooms, etc. The office staff is courteous, professional, and helpful. It’s a short walk to the Trolley stop, which will take you almost anywhere in the area. I deducted 1 star for the extra cost WiFi. Any park that calls itself a resort, WiFi should be included in the rental fee. I also deducted a star for its worn look, road noise (I-8), lack of rules enforcement, etc. Although it’s not cheap, but it’s more reasonably priced than others in the region. The rate listed is based on the monthly rent. We will be returning for each winter holiday season. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here while visiting family. It is a well kept urban park, but the sites are narrow and a very large rig will have some difficulty maneuvering. Depending on site location you may have highway noise. The park is near the trolley line and is very convenient if touring the city. Each site is on asphalt with a cement pad but no picnic table. The only real problem with the site is that when slides are extended they are up against bushes so access to compartments may be difficult. We would stay here again for its convenience and cleanliness if nothing else. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights and this park is only a short walk away from the MTS-Trolley station giving you access to whole San Diego. I-8 is right outside the park fence, be prepared for some noise. The sites are back in except 2 and situated between palm trees, angled to each other. Therefore, the back end of trailers or Motorhomes are very close together and you have to be very careful with bigger rigs to park them. Not much of a problem for my truck camper, but even I had to watch the trees very carefully. The office closes at 5 p.m. and there is no information available after that. Even though check out and check in is at noon, the office was closed well before and the sign said "will be back at 1 p.m.". The internet password gives you 4 free hours after you log in and and if you come back some hours later, you have to pay. The restrooms were kind of clean but as usually I was missing a lot of hooks and would have appreciated if the shower head would have been higher up. The restroom light is on a timer, so if you are not the first one entering the restroom you might forget to set the timer and all of a sudden you are in the dark. Rates are higher on weekends too. If I return, then only because it is so close to the trolley system. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

The only advantage of this park is its proximity to a MTS-trolley stop. Just park your car in front of your RV and with a day pass ($ 5) you can use the whole metropolitan trolley system. It is even possible to go to the border (Tijuana). The biggest disadvantage is its proximity to Interstate 8. It is one of the noisiest parks we ever visited. The rate is the PA rate, but you have to pay $ 4.95 per day extra for Wi-Fi. We spent 3 night here. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A very nice park. Even better if you get the right site. There are a lot of intrenched people mixed in with the traveling RV'ers. The facilities are nice and it is centrally located, close to malls and restaurants. The park is right next to a light rail station, so you can get on the tram and go anywhere. Something that a lot of travelers don't think about, but it is an easy way to get to the Mall. Some sites are near grass, which is nice for pets. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.
