This is a great location if you want to be in the middle of San Diego. The concrete pads are a little small and you may find the front and/or back of your unit will hang off the end of the pad. The complex is well staffed, but sadly they are not customer service orientated. They seen to see their role as supervision rather than service. Once or twice a week, they will come around handing out notices reminding people to pick up after their pet, keep areas neat, etc. They just go from unit to unit handing out the notices to everyone. A minor annoyance. A great place in San Diego to spend a few weeks in January or February. - CO Traveler

Great place to stay for a while. It has FHU and a functioning wifi. The latter is a bit painful and requires a login every 24 hours or a credit card that's not used. It's close to San Diego fun. The spaces are a little bit close together, though not like a commercial counterpart, and the concrete sites are sufficient for your big rig. It's an open base with no gate and the golf course is right there beside you. Qualcomm stadium is within a mile, but I wouldn't walk it as the traffic is heavy and fast. The reservation IT system in Navygetaways is a pain in the back side; call on the phone and the person is very helpful. - BuffaloGR

One of the best RV parks I have ever visited. Clean, safe, wholesome environment for kids. Extremely helpful camp host and office staff. Meticulously maintained grounds, staff regularly attends to park cleanliness. Strict enforcement of dog leash and cleanup rules are absolutely necessary and greatly appreciated. Nice dog park. Because the park has no gate or guard the host staff is constantly on duty to provide security: a task which they consistently and competently perform. A perfectly managed park in all respects. Centrally located near all San Diego attractions. Some sites have golf course views, multiple kids playgrounds, pool during summer, adjacent to two Navy golf courses. Paradise. - george kraus

I actually did a drive through. The park is clean and orderly. The vast majority of occupants are long term or permanent. All sights are well kept. If your RV is 40', most of the sites will not be suitable, and the turns will be vary tight. Not big rig friendly. The sites are closer than average. - Marine

Park appears to be filled with full or long term residents living in their trailers or motor-homes. The park is clean and the staff friendly. The pool area is well maintained. The park is well shaded with both pull through and back-in sites. The park is located a about 100 yards from busy Interstate 5 only about 3 miles from the Mexican border. The freeway traffic noise is constant 24 hours a day and doesn't change much at night. I will probably not return to this location. - Wayne01

We had a mixed feeling about this RV Park. We booked it and when we got there 2PM in the afternoon the office was closed. Surprising to find it closed since this was an RV park. There was a bunch of envelopes with names on them for site reservations. Ours showed our site # and name and that it was a "back-in" site. When we went to the site it was way too small for us. A nice fellow who lived in the park saw that there was no way at all that we could fit in there and so he came and showed us a better site. The site he showed us could fit us in there but it was a dump of a site. Right next to the highway wall, and right between 2 abandoned run down 5th wheels from the 70's ! Being just 2 miles from Mexico we figured, oh well, we will just be using it as a base camp while in SD, so we stayed. We went to get some supplies and upon returning at 4PM we saw the office open. I went inside and the lady in there was quite rude. Each time I tried to speak one word she would immediately cut me off and state the same thing: "THE OFFICE IS CLOSED TODAY, ANY PROBLEMS CAN BE DEALT WITH IN THE MORNING". I said "BUT I JUST NEED A KEY TO THE RESTR-" "SIR, THE OFFICE IS CLOSED TODAY, ANY PROBLEMS CAN BE DEALT WITH IN THE MORNING". I said "BUT HOW DO I USE THE RESTR-" "SIR, THE OFFICE IS CLOSED TODAY, ANY PROBLEMS CAN BE DEALT WITH IN THE MORNING". This went in for about 60 seconds with me just trying to deal with the simplest of issues but I kept getting cut off. Finally I got the keys. The next morning the lady was super nice. I was told by one of the long term residents there that Sunday was her only day off. I feel bad for her but the office door was open and my issues were simple. I would recommend that you arrive on any day but Sunday. In some areas the park is beautiful. The office, bathrooms, Laundry and Rec Room are truly resort like. About 2/3 of the sites are really really nice. The other 1/3 are run down and have people living in old beat up RV's. Some of the people living in them are very very nice and some are just plain mean and gang-like looking. This park is just a little bit short of being a 1st class park. I would recommend the park only if you arrive on any day but Sunday and get to pick your site. WI-FI is only available in the rec room which closes at 10PM so it is inconvenient. Price was fair at $36 . Don't buy ICE there, it is $3 for a small bag ! - TPE

We've been coming here for 5 years now and I've noticed that each time the rate keeps going up, up, up. At almost $75 a day, I just don't think it's worth it anymore. Mission Bay itself is starting to look a little shaggy with all the outside streets filled with old run-down RVs parked everywhere too. I was shocked when we arrived and the campground was more than 85% empty, I guess I'm not the only one tired of the high prices. Location is not the only reason to use a campground. - MarieB

We camp for vacations in a 25 foot Class C motorhome with bikes, no toad, no pets, no kids.
We enjoyed this RV Park and will definitely come back when we want to stay in San Diego. This is the 3rd one we've tried in the San Diego (Chula Vista RV Resort and Oak Creek RV Resort in El Cajon) and this is the one we'll come back to.
After $5.00 online reservation discount and $6.00 Good Sam discount, we paid $54.67, including tax, for the cheapest spot this Resort offers.
For San Diego the price is good
Location right on Mission Bay is great
Location is also very close to SeaWorld
Small beach right at RV Resort
Can rent kayaks/paddleboards and have delivered to beach
Can bicycle around area
"Snack Shack" food truck with shaded tables
Ice available for $3 at office
Security gate closed at night
Sites very close together, almost a parking lot
Few trees, almost no shade
Little grass. - Katie and Steve

Before I say what I didn't like, let me say I didn't care at all that the park was just one big asphalt parking lot with stripes and utility connections. I also didn't care that the wifi was spotty at best. What I needed was a place to park my RV while I slept and while I played tourist. What I really didn't like is that they have a restriction on the age of RV's. Mine was new enough for now, but I don't intend to spend a load just to stay off Mission Bay's naughty list. To justify this snob attitude, the park should be the best ever. The wifi should be excellent over the entire park and there should be beautiful landscaping. As it is, they plunk down some asphalt and have the nerve to tell some folks their RV isn't pretty enough to stay at Mission Bay. On a side note, the city finally forced out the residents of the mobile home park so they can put in a resort. It will surround the RV park. I suspect the RV park won't be pretty enough for San Diego once the resort goes in. Just deserts. - Watalotahui

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

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

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

This is the first time we have stayed here since the Park was renovated. All we can say is WOW! With one exception they did a top notch job. That exception regards the waterfront sites. They are all back in sites, great if you are in a trailer, but not so good if you are in a Class A or C. If you are in a Class A or C and decide to drive in, you will need to have power, water, and antenna cable long enough to run from your utility closet to the power and water pedestal. We have found the staff helpful and friendly. Great views, close to all the San Diego attractions, in the middle of Navy Seal training grounds...so you get to observe some pretty nifty stuff! Cable TV and WiFi worked great--no problems whatsoever. We will definitely stay here again. - Joe-n-Doe

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

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

We stayed five days. The park is divided into three priced sites with the "bayview" sites the most expensive. They back up to a park which backs up to a bay and marina. Unfortunately, the sites are back in so you don't see the bay from the front of your rig. The park is very loud on the weekends with music piped from park visitors.
The best sites are the medium priced with the exception of sites 56-60 as they back up to a quieter area of the park. The medium priced sites are the largest and all sites have a hedge which helps the privacy issue.
Nice pool area with restricted hours for adults and children, and a nice store and reasonably priced laundry. Three restroom/shower houses which are clean and well equipped as long as you're an average sized person. - Southwest RV'r

We stay here anytime we are in the San Diego area. This location has always been clean which includes the bath and showers area. They had a small band that played a variety of songs. They also had a small bar that had reasonable priced wine and beer. We will stay here again. - dhansen871

We stayed at this park for 6 days, our site backed up to the beach, park. There was a fence that separated us from the beach but the view was great. If I stay again we will pull in forward for the view. The spaces are wide plenty of space for our slides (4) and still had plenty of room out side. Each space was very clean. One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. - Crbus

Stayed for about a week, beautiful campground with friendly, helpful staff. The only thing I would change is to have grass in the dog park rather than eucalyptus shavings. Hard to play fetch with her mouth full of debris. - jkr

If you have kids this is the place, lots of kids having fun. Hard to maneuver big rig, cars parked out in road and all over and you have to watch for kids too. We laughed you saw lots of kids and few adults.
Nothing special might stay here again. - SlicksMom

Overall this was a nice KOA. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend and the campground was completely full. It was tight navigating through the park with our 42 foot rig. It would've helped in the staff assisted us to the site. The roads are very narrow and some campers vehicles or the back of their rigs were over the edge of their road. It was very stressful parking and pulling out. The jumping pillows were nice and very popular for the kids. The Wifi didn't work very well. - jennifernelson49

This great facility is slated to go out of business as of October 1, 2015. I'm told it will become high rise condos. - biosensai
Aug 2015 - $43.00
Great RV park - with the exception of the WiFi service. The park is being sold and not taking reservations after October 1 WHICH explains why their WiFi is the pits. Talked to one of the managers and he said they'd already spent $12K on the WiFi - with the park being sold, why bother with the WiFi, 'eh???? Great attitude! - Jimrodenkirch
Feb 2015 - $50.00
This continues to be our favorite RV park in California. This adults only facility does not offer cable and lacks a swimming pool. It also has no bathroom facilities, so your rig needs to be self-contained. Though very attractively landscaped, no trees interfere with satellite TV reception. Silver Strand State Beach is a 5 minute drive away for a swim or evening stroll, or bike to it using the easily accessible Bayshore bike path. The park does offer 2 putting greens and an enclosed driving range as an adult playground. The sites are huge. RV's park on gravel pads with a concrete parking area for the tow vehicle / toad adjacent. A large paver patio is provided for lounging outside. Tall hedges add privacy between sites. The one huge negative is that the facility is slated to close this fall. It will be replaced by condominiums. - biosensai
