The weather was great this year and there is a new picnic area at the resort. Its called Surfer's Curve and they have umbrellas and tables set up. They said they just upgraded the Wi-Fi and it seems to be better now than some other reviews were mentioning.
Our site was easy to back into and room for our awning and bbq.
The neat thing is that there is a walkway to the beach and there is a playground next to the resort. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Walk on the beach at low-tide so you can collect shells and walk to the pier. Surf Museum is free on Tuesday and they have old surfboards and its right downtown.
Lots of hip new places to eat. We like the Privateer Pizza and there is a Sushi place you can walk to.

This is a very nice park and would recommend staying here. I rated it an "8" for two reasons. The WiFi provides a pretty strong signal but is extremely slow all hours of the day as far as I could tell. It was basically useless on my iPhone and iPad. It worked OK on my MacBook Pro sometimes. The other major criticism, which is out of the control of the park, is that the trash pickup by Waste Management is early and very noisy. One pickup is for the dumpsters and another follows for the recycle bins. This happens twice per week. I know from experience that Waste Management sets this pickup schedule and it is out of the control of the park.
As mentioned in other reviews, there is a nearby commuter train and if you're outside it is loud but it passes in less than 10 seconds. For whatever reason, I've found that many RV parks are located near train tracks. I guess this train could be a problem if you are a light sleeper but it never bothered me. You could also request a space near the front of the park to reduce the noise but then you are near the busy street the park is located on. This is a very clean and well maintained park. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The spaces are close but real estate is at a premium in California. They were extremely helpful in guiding me into my space. In fact, they parked our friend's 5'er for him. When I booked reservations several months earlier, our friends had a smaller 30 amp travel trailer. They upgraded to a 50 amp RV just before the trip. I called the park two days before our arrival requesting that their site be upgraded to 50 amp. They complied and were still able to locate us side-by-side. The park is very accessible to all areas of Oceanside including a very short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
There is a farmer's market every Thursday in Downtown Oceanside. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and other great stuff. TBG (That Boy Good) BBQ is just around the corner from the farmer's market and is excellent. The owner is from Louisiana and knows how to cook. I'm from Texas, appreciate good BBQ, and I don't think I've ever had any better and ate there twice. We took a whale tour out of San Diego, which is a short drive away, and loved it. We also visited the famous San Diego Zoo.

This is a nice smaller park with a very friendly staff. We were there in August and it was mostly families. We enjoyed watching the kids ride their bikes. The travelers staying in the park were very quiet. There is a train that goes by fairly often, but it didn't bother us. It is a very short walk to the beach--about 4 minutes. Nice pool, small store and a nice game room. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Its a little pricey in the summer, but everything in California is, even some state parks are $65 a night for full hookups. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a really good park. We stay here every year. Staff is friendly and helpful. What would make it a GREAT PARK would be Wi-Fi that worked on regular basis and later hours for the game room. Game room (ping pong, pool table, movies, Wii, etc) closes at 9 PM and they start shutting down closer to 8:30. With movie night and swimming pool still open, the game room should be open also. Verizon LTE and 3G is horrible here so Wi-Fi is a must. Unfortunately, connection is constantly being dropped if you're able to connect at all. When you're lucky enough to get (and stay) on, the speed is really really slow. Kids won't be streaming any NetFlix or HBO up in here. Other than those issues, everything is great.

Rate reflects weekly rate plus 3 extra nights in one of the cheapest sites. All sites, not just ours, are very cramped. We had no where to park our tow truck as well as having a sitting area. The management did allow us to park in one of their allocated parking spots. The campsite is very clean and tidy with paved roads and sites which are regularly swept and cleaned by the very good ground staff. Good pool and spa and very clean restrooms. A short walk to the beach. Good water pressure and excellent WiFi. We would have awarded a higher mark but we felt a short stay is overpriced for the space you get. And very sadly. the office staff/management are friendly but arrogant. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Absolutely loved this park. From the moment we pulled in I was impressed with the staff. By the time I had checked in my husband had been escorted to our site and was unhooking the trailer. Amazing!! Yes, the sites are a little on the small side, but what do you expect. It is less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach. The train noise didn't bother us at all. I wouldn't want to be in a site right next to the tracks though. The restrooms and showers were clean. They have a nice game room and lounge for all ages and even show movies at night. I honestly can not say enough positive things about this park. We will definitely return! We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Really can't beat the price for all you get: clean, well maintained, helpful and friendly staff, movie night, 5 walking minutes to beach w/ lifeguard, rental equipment for beach, family friendly, safe, and great place as base for sight seeing.

This is a very clean, safe park. They have security at night and the owners are always around making sure that rules are followed. It is by far the nicest RV park in the area. Having said that, it is loud. Even though the speed limit on Highway 101 adjacent to the park is 35MPH cars seem to be going much faster. The motorcycles screaming by 24/7 are extremely aggravating. Nothing the owners can do of course about this, however keep this in mind before you book here, as the sites are non-refundable. The train goes by quite often, however they are short trains and are tolerable. Great path to the beach! Be sure to check out Angelo's burgers just South on 101! Also check out Yoshino's in the village of Carlsbad. Get there early as they sell out of the best sushi I've ever had very quickly! We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Clean and safe park. Sites are a bit small and internal streets not very wide. This makes back-in sites really challenging to say the least. Wi-Fi is average once you figure out the five steps to get it working...not the easiest. Also, the Wi-Fi code provided by office only works for one device! Really lame if you have a tablet, Blu-Ray, Wii, smartphone, laptop...you get the picture. Verizon cell service is good, 4G/LTE is bad, and 3G is horrible...use the free Wi-Fi once you figure it out. No fire-pits, but you can bring your own. With that said, no real firewood is allowed. Another dumb rule. Lets make smores with the DuraFlame log kids. Cable TV channels are above average. Access to beach is great. Atmosphere is great and family orientated. Staff is friendly and helpful. Price is really high, but if you're going to pay for the beach and can't get into a state campground, this is it. If price was lower, I would give Paradise an 8 or 9.

Super clean, very friendly. Easy in and out. Felt very safe in park. Small park but very nice. Will stay here again. Wi-Fi was easy to log on to as well. Other parks should take note on how clean they are. It makes the guest want to leave their space as nice as they found them! We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Best RV park in Oceanside, CA. Easy walk to the beach. Very close to rail tracks so quite noisy at times. Clean campground. Not easy getting into back-in camping spot with 31 ft travel trailer. Had to park truck in overflow parking area due to lack of space. Honest business. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed here for two weeks. We choose this park based on proximity to Carlsbad where our two sons were vacationing with their families. We were in a supersite, #3. Although trains came by west of us and the Coast Highway is in front of the park, the noise never bothered us. I noticed the traffic and trains during the day but they never bothered us at night. This park is kid friendly and there were a lot of children of all ages. They were everywhere on bikes and scooters, but were very well behaved and no disturbance to us. I guess I appreciate children more now that I am an aging grandparent. Our side was a little close quartered, we have 3 foot slides on both sides. I couldn't extend my patio awning fully, but we don't tend to sit out a lot and the weather was cloudy and cool most of the time. There are a variety of space sizes to accommodate any camping unit conceivable. The grounds and spaces are very well maintained. Sites are swept and raked after each occupant. The parking pads are concrete with gravel around them, so I don’t think rain would pose any problem with muddy sites. We were here over the 4th of July holiday and there were a lot of activities for both adults and children. Staff was friendly and helpful at all times. For cyclists, joggers or walkers the San Lois Rey River Trail is nearby and most of the streets have designated bike lanes. Over all I think this is a good central location for whatever activities you plan. The price I posted is for a supersite which includes space for two cars and reflects holiday and summer prices.

Was apprehensive after reading a few less than glowing reviews. Fears were ungrounded. Was a last minute decision to come. Wife insisted on going to the ocean. Not much available at usual locations on such short notice. Park is exactly as represented on their website. Extremely neat and well maintained. Touch up painting and landscaping happening constantly. Great lobby/lounge with ping pong, football, "bar shuffleboard, pool table and two big screen TVs. Small store only drawback but Target etc., only 3 miles away. Beach access is as promised. Beach is small and high tide takes up most. Still, it is lifeguard protected and swimming beach separate from surfing, etc. Light rail comes by very close every 30 minutes or so until late evening, picking up again after 5AM. Short trains and except for one late in day. Commuter rail mostly. We camped at Paradise By The Sea RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Stayed a month at winter rate. Well maintained park with convenient access to beach and nice park for dog. Train noise and small sites. Busy week-ends with plenty of kids. We enjoyed the pool/hot tub (adults only after 5:30) and their are plenty of places to eat within a short drive. Oceanside has nice beaches, along with the pier and harbor. Be careful walking after the sun sets. The park has good security. Staff is friendly and helpful. Family oriented and good atmosphere for all - just another day in paradise!
