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. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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

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

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

Hard to describe. The park is quiet, clean, well patrolled, and well located. It is also dull and devoid of amenities. The beach access is limited. Lots of unused potential. Probably limited by San Diego zoning regulations. The park rules are rigidly observed even though the 5th wheel next to me was obviously storing tools and materials and actively running a business. Too many good parks out there at the same price, probably won't return. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Resort is located in the heart of the Mission Bay area of San Diego. Plenty to do in and around the park. In terms of aesthetics, it is nothing more than a RV parking lot that happens to be right on the bay. However, due to its location and local activities, one could almost overlook the fact that RVers are packed into the park like sardines, particularly during busy parts of the year. All hookups worked well and site was level. Staff were friendly and helpful. Even though I did not actually use the restrooms, they did not have a welcoming appearance from the outside. All in all, I would consider staying here again. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
