A small campground located in a convenient location. It's a steep road in, but you should be OK if you go slow. Road was paved and sites had a concrete pad for your unit with gravel base for the rest of the area. Some sites were pretty small, but sites on the inside of the loop were big enough for large rigs. Nice playground for the kids. Water, electric, cable, sewer, and Wi-Fi were all good. Some highway noise but not bad. Situated in a lovely canyon next to a golf course and recreational field for the military. The pool was a bit of a walk and we did not use it. We liked it here and would stay again. - R&S

This would be a great little RV Park, tucked away in a canyon, next to a golf course, in a very central location to San Diego and the surrounding areas. However, there are a lot of issues with this place. Sites are concrete and level, but drops off at edge of concrete, making it difficult to use picnic table or chairs. Also, care must be taken to avoid backing up too far, where you won't be able to drop your rear jacks. The camp hosts are constantly circling in their cars, not for security but to find things to confront guests about, such as approved fire heaters, flying kites with kids, guests displaying their RV-based business signs, mobile RV repairmen, etc. We felt like children with all the rules and reprimands. Half the RV Park are active duty military banking BAH. We were here for 4 weeks and the grass was mowed 6 times, starting at around 6am each time - annoying and total FWA. What a shame that a nice RV park with lots of amenities and in a central location is so over-regulated that it sucks the fun out of staying here. We won't be back. - LifeRidingShotgun

This military park is very conveniently located to all the attractions in San Diego. The grounds are immaculately maintained with a lot of grassy play areas, and the office staff is very friendly and helpful. The pads are cement and very level, which makes setting up a breeze. This is definitely a place we will visit again. We camped here in a motorhome. - Herb and Dale

Overall this Park was one of the best we have stayed in that is a "beach" RV Park. First let me state the obvious which is a common situation at California "beach" RV Parks. TON'S OF PEOPLE!!! Yes, this is a VERY large RV Park. You will never be alone until you are inside your RV. But this is probably the best run, most organized RV Park we have stayed in. Activities for kid's of all ages. Campland has organized activities for kid's each day and each evening. Sports during the day and then a movie night, disco night, talent night, live band night pretty much something going on all the time. Not interested in participation? Then Campland has a private beach that is good for kid's of all ages. Want to sail a catamaran? Paddle board? Kayak? Jet ski? Yes, it's all here and available for rentals. However the rentals are not cheap. But all of the preceding are fun and the bay is a fantastic place to do water sports. There are multiple swim pools but these are busy too. Management and security is very good at this RV Park. The RV Park store is large and has a good assortment of things/food to buy. But back to the RV comments. The sites are narrow, depending on what you want to pay and what site you select if your RV has slides you will be close to other RV's. It looked like in our locations about 25% of the RV's were trailer rentals (delivered and set up for you) so if you don't have an RV of your own you can still go to Campland. A hot tip is to go with several families and establish your own "compound" which is great for families with friends. This RV Park is dog friendly so expect to see a lot of dogs (there are areas with grass for the dogs). Highly recommend but be prepared for crowds and spending money for onsite and offsite activities! - User2707

The park is a ghetto. Bodies everywhere, kids everywhere, skateboards, bikes, traffic everywhere. Sites are very small, we paid extra for a few feet more but no blackwater drain. They wanted over $200 a night for a site with a bit more room and a drain.
There are so many rules in this place it is ridiculous and they make you sign a disclaimer acknowledging that the park is dangerous!
I love a beer but there were a lot of loud, uncouth drunk people that were too visible and audible for it to be "family friendly". I counted over 30 people in the horseshoe shaped hot tub in the evening and the swimming pool had a lot of unidentified objects in it. The place really disgusted me on the first night.
The 2nd night they made my one-eyed father park his truck outside the camp because he couldn't find his ticket and the office was closed. The security guards were pretty rude. It took over an hour to find a space over half a mile away. I hope that made the security feel important.
That said, if you want facilities, they have everything. Laundry, shops, restaurants, pools, spas, boat hire, bike hire, performance stage etc etc. There is a beach with a buoyed-off swimming area. The beach looked pretty territorial with the whole of the beach kerbside covered by gazebos by 8am!
And I must say that the pools that were so disgusting the night before were clean by morning.
About a mile away round the bay there is a lovely public beach with trees and shade and lots of free parking. It's a great getaway from this site.
After so much noise all day the campsite was quiet after 11pm.
In summary, great if you like noise, bodies, arranged events, being crammed in. Awful if you like space, quiet and nature. - bentripper

We had a great time there riding our bikes and the jet skis. The weather was beautiful. We met our family there and had fun hanging out at the beach, playing volleyball and watching the fireworks. The sites are very close together but we were with family so we didn't mind. It is a little like going to camp but with families. There is a lot of activities to choose from. We enjoyed hanging out at the beach and watching the fireworks at night. There are a lot of people but the park was clean and well managed. - Spirit in the Sky-1

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 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

Waterfront sites, close to the Hotel Del Coronado, bike and boat rentals on site, new level concrete pads, clean restrooms & showers, but spotty internet access though. - ginsun88

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

The park is located in a nice area and you have access to the beach. Excellent security and service. The sites are all paved, some have larger trees. Sites are wide so you can have your awning open. This park gets busy over weekends! Hookup for water and cable are at the back sewer is on the side.
We needed to extend by one week and the front deck went out of their way to find us a spot. They also came to our site to deliver a UPS parcel we shipped there!! - Presidio40

We stayed here two nights while exploring San Diego and found it average. Concrete pads which were flat. Not a lot for kids to do. Acceptable laundry. The ladies restrooms were fine but the mens were out of action so two of us had to walk quite a bit further to use them. Not our favorite park but fine for the cost and location. - kiwitravelers

One of the best located RV Parks near a major city we have seen. It's located in Mission Bay Park. Miles of walking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding etc. right there. Mission Bay Park is always active with many weekend events. Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are about 4 miles west. San Diego is about 5 miles and Balboa Park about 7 mile.
The park is very well maintained, the security is top notch. It's a large square parking lot with some trees and decent sized spaces. There are about 10 sites that face the bay but they don't allow you to back in so you really have no view. Don't understand that.
We have stayed here twice and will return. - Jones714

Very close sites, highway noise, train noise, strange office staff.
Hook-ups worked good. Wifi worked good.
Sites need updated everything is dated. - Pnr

If you want to do things in San Diego or La Jolla, this is a great spot to land. Rate reflects weekly stay. Our greeting upon arrival was warm and friendly. The sites are full hookup, but not large. The pool, which is heated, the hot tub, and the bathrooms and showers were very clean. This is a city campground, with a highway and train nearby. The wi-fi was slow and patchy. We would stay here again. - Vic and Marsha
