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

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

The $80 rate was for the weekend, $60 for weekdays. We are a retired couple and this park is best suited for young families who would likely rate it higher because of the many amenities for children. The weekend was very noisy because of a car club activity and a loud social event whose music could be heard all over the park. Quiet hours do not begin until 11PM. Weeknights were quiet with fewer campers. WiFi signal strength was strong but the connection was slow and uses a website login which was not convenient. There is a wide variety of sites from grassy and well treed to the sandy asphalt parking area we were in nearer to the beach. There is a nice laundry, store, game room and BBQ restaurant. The beach area and landscaping were well tended. Some of the longer term RVs looked junky. This location is convenient to I-5 for easy access to San Diego activities. - K&D from GV AZ

Really a nice location with it's own beach and a marina, very close to Pacific Beach, San Diego and to Sea World. Most sites are really tight with back to back power, water and sewer which meant I had to pull straight in and my windshield was looking at the back of a 5th whl. I opted for a Prefered site with a lot a room on both sides with a fence separating the sites, but it was very dusty. It was really full on the weekends with a lot of kids. Went through their orientation ..... they have a LOT of rules 4 pages worth ............... kinda takes the fun out of it. Oh one more point the electrical was always reading low 100 to 109 volts. We have to think hard if we were to stay here again. We stayed for a month it was cheaper that way. - labones

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

Great park that's well worth the price. It is new so how it is in a couple of year's we'll have to see. Weekends getting very busy, but weekdays no problem. We will be back whenever in SD! - NavyRebel

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

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

Despite what the staff and the website tells you, this park is NOT big rig friendly. If you have a rig that's over 35', you will NOT fit if the park is full. There are trees at the front corners of every single site, plus the sites themselves are narrow, as is the street. So, if you are trying to back in to your space and you have neighbors on the sides and across the street, you won't fit. It took us an hour to get our 43' fifth wheel in - and that's with an empty spot next to us and across from us. Very, very frustrating!! WHY would you plant trees at the front corners of every site?!
We had called in advance to make sure that our rig would fit (we were told yes so clearly they don't know rig sizes) and if there was space in our spot for our extra car. We were assured that yes, there was space. When we checked in, we were assured again that there was space for our extra vehicle in front of our rig. They charged us $5/day extra for the car.
Once we finally got into our spot, a security guard came by and told us that we had to move the car to "overflow parking." We explained that we'd paid to have our car there and were told it was fine. Nope. Had to move the car outside the gate, about a 1/2 mile walk. So what exactly is the $5 for and why were we told twice that our extra car was fine?
As other reviewers have mentioned, this place has more rules than anything I have ever experienced. And stated in such a way as to assume you are already a law-breaker. It's not like this park is a luxury resort, folks. It's a paved parking lot with no amenities. And even though it's paved, our site was extremely unlevel.
The electric worked fine, as did the wi-fi, although it was slow. The sewer is toward the front of the space and our long hose did not stretch to the back gray tank. There is laundry on site, but we did not use it. There is access to the bay front through the back corner of the park, which has a nice sidewalk along the bay for walking or riding your bike.
Based on our experience and the high price, I would not recommend this park. - GrowFam

As other reviewers have commented, it is a paved and fenced parking lot with full hookups and great location. Easy, busy access from I-5. All sites are adequate size with easy access and no pull thrus. Caution on speed bumps and angled drainage ditches. I-5 access also gives you the constant vehicle noise. Overall, good park for visiting San Diego that is clean, secure and location. Would stay here again if in San Diego. - RJourney

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

This was the first time staying at this campground and probably the last. A campsite with a pretty good look, but once you walk around it, is very simple and ordinary. The reception service is quite simple, attended by two people who looked like they were there to pass the time, not as employees of the campsite. They do not have a small convenience store, but only two soda machines and water, and since getting there is made through a secondary road or street, is close to a mile and a half away off the freeway. The most bland of parks. If needed for only a night - good enough, otherwise no. - gofion
