Parking lot with hookups. Location is good, will be better once construction activity and area upgrades are finished (years?). Old manufactured housing development being razed and area repurposed. WIFI was horrible, not functional at all. Security was excellent, with that service comes very bright streetlights throughout the park. Employees were welcoming. Site was right next to exit, listened to automatic gate which was 5 feet from my bed. Designed Drainage on incoming roads creates large bumps the are not easy on stored materials. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As previous posts stated, this is a huge asphalt parking lot with hookups for RVs. Sites and roads are good. The selling point of this park is its location. It is right on Anza Bay with its own little beach on one side, and a nice paved walkway on the other side. All tourists attractions are on a few miles away. There is a little Snack Shack on premises. Bathrooms were fine. Cable TV was good but Wi-fi slow and dropping often. Workers were very friendly. There is also a mobile home park as part of the property, but the city has purchased the land and most of them are empty now. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Pros:

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

Security personnel

Picnic table

Cons:

Sites very close together, almost a parking lot

Few trees, almost no shade

Little grass. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

The park is a giant asphalt parking lot with trees and shrubs. It is conveniently located to the various San Diego attractions and beaches. The sites are close, but ample room to set up your chairs, patio mat, etc. They recently updated their cable TV system, so if you have an older model TV you'll need to leave a deposit for a converter box. I still wasn't able to get a picture. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Location they have and all utilities worked. That being said a preferred site? Resort? Sites hard for big rigs with haphazard parking, lots of trash scattered. Nights were quiet though. Security always driving around
Not sure if I'd stay here again. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We chose this park solely due to location, and were expecting to dislike it due to it being a "crowded parking lot" style park. We were actually pleasantly surprised once we checked in, even though we picked a "standard" size site, the cheapest available. The sites were much wider than we expected.. you're still close to your neighbor but there is enough breathing room to set up your chairs, tables, patio mat, etc. and have a nice outdoor area. Other city-style RV parks we've been to had much less space. The many mature trees soften the asphalt feel of the place, and most rows (ours included) are separated by a strip of grass behind the RVs. The sites are a little shorter than we'd like. With our 37' motorhome parked as far back as possible, our tow car parked sideways in front took up a bit of space in the road. Now picture an entire row like that, with tow cars lining both sides of the road, and it gets difficult for new arrivals to back into a site. We were steps away from the peninsula beach where we walked and swam our dog morning and evening. Utilities worked great, including the WiFi which worked well most of them time, only slowing down in the early evening. We had 3 bars of LTE on Verizon and 2 bars on AT&T. Both worked fine without the need for a booster. There was LOTS of activity at the park... kids on bikes, scooters, etc. all over the place, all the time, so drive carefully! We're thinking of returning for a month in the winter when the rates are much lower. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The following are the opinions of myself. Arrived at 6pm and the office was closed. Proceeded to the guard shack to read the quite extensive park rules. The one that scared me was the $50-$300 charge for accidental sewage spills. I chose to not connect, and dump at my storage facility.

The roads were fairly narrow, but paved with asphalt. Our site was very cramped for being a "Preferred" site. The site was very short, too short for parking my TV, so I parked across the front of the site. We had an end site, which had large trees at each corner in front of the site. That made it extremely difficult to back in. Luckily, the site behind us was vacant so I drove thru. The site was old asphalt and not level. When our awning was extended, it was approx 5' from the slide out of the neighbor. Restrooms were clean but rather old in appearance. We didn't try WiFi or cable. We were able to get a good view of the sky for our portable satellite dish.

The location was perfect for SeaWorld and downtown activities. This CG is on Mission Bay. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A family oriented park, with sites on Mission Bay. All sites are back-in. Most are pretty tight to fit an RV and a vehicle side by side, but there is some room in the front. Very little in the way of amenities. WiFi varies from poor to acceptable. Cable works fine if connected to an HD compatible flat-screen TV. If not, you need a converter box from the office, and some channels don't work well that way. The beach at Mission Bay is accessed from either end of the park, and plenty for the family there. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is heaven after Santa Fe RV Park! Spacious sites. water view, Mission Bay park just steps away. Excellent service in the office. Not only could we use Passport America for the week days but we also received a 15% Veterans discount for the more expensive week end days. Park is quiet except for the dog next to us who barks a lot but the people are so nice we haven't complained! We would stay here again. Our price per day is on the low side for San Diego parks.

The best thing going for this place is the location. Central to all activities and fun things to do in SD. The facility is part of an aging and derelict mobile home park. It is supposed to be redone with a view to natural usage and for all folks. Sadly this change is slow coming as the owners of the mobile homes are fighting leaving. This affects this park as there is no maintenance or upgrading going to take place. Some day hopefully the state will take over this land and make a beautiful state park with camping. Not likely in my lifetime.

If you like an asphalt parking lot with hookups you'll love it. We tried to use the restrooms several times and decided to not. Conditions were poor. Very dirty and no toilet paper to name a few negatives. Also we had several large groups behind our site. Partied into the wee hours and security was nowhere to be seen.

Wifi was non existent. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is paved, limited trees, close sites but OK for slide outs and awnings. Convenient to all of San Diego sites, close to water activities, biking trails, fishing. Office staff was friendly, 24 hour security. This is not a destination park, not a resort but perfectly placed to visit San Diego. Crowded during summer and difficult to move with larger RV's. Traffic noise is not a problem, but kid noisy could be. If you want quiet and sedate, you might try elsewhere or keep your visits to the off season.

The RV park is a parking lot, but the location on Mission Bay is nice. Great for walking or biking. We live close by, but enjoy coming down to the bay for a few days. Rates are high, but they do take Passport America. Check for details. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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!! We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.
