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.

Very friendly office staff! This is a parking lot with very very little room between spaces. To be more specific, if all RV Parks were like this, I would give up camping!! We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The best thing about this park is that it is close to attractions (Zoo & Balboa Park). Just a concrete parking lot with hook ups and not much room between sites. The staff was friendly, but not very helpful with information. Asked where to fuel up with diesel that was easy in and out for a 36 footer and got a deer in the head light look. Doubt if I would stay here again. So, it gets a rating of 6 just for location to attractions. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Located on Mission Bay in a trailer-park community, this RV Resort is basically just a big parking lot with painted lines to designate campsites and a tree here and there. The perimeter is fenced, with just a few openings. The entrance is guarded and requires a permit. The exit is a motion-sensor gate that automatically opens and closes. The gate to the laundromat requires a code to re-enter the resort.A gate on the back end of the resort leads to a nice, paved walking trail that follows the shoreline of the bay all the way around the bay. There is no sundries store on location and propane is only available two days per week. Check-in which is located about .5 mile before you enter the resort and shares it's building with the trailer-park administration. In the resort, there is a snack stand that serves breakfast, lunch, and ice cream. There is a laundromat, garden, and recreation facility that is shared with the trailer-park residents. There are also toilet and shower facilities placed around the resort. Mission Bay is very close to San Diego and the RV Resort is only a few miles from Sea World. It's location provides very easy access to the interstate, so everything is within easy reach. Worth mentioning is that immediately outside the resort is the parking lot for Mission Bay Beach, where we noticed several RVs were parked the entire time we were there. There were some parked in the parking lot, some on the side of the street, and some actually on the beach. We also noticed that at the entrance to Mission Bay Park, there was a public RV dump station. We didn't check to see if a fee was charged, but found it interesting how acceptable it is to boondock in these areas. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The RV park is surrounded by Mission Bay Park so there are views of the bay everywhere. RV sites are spacious and there's easy access for large trailers, awnings, and slide outs. Guests have access to wonderful paths. Very friendly staff and immaculately clean. Snack Shack has great food and root beer floats. We will definitely stay here again.

We got a great $310 weekly off-season rate (+$5 each dog fee, one time) and loved this park so much that we extended a second week. There are great walking paths all around the park and it's close to all of the museums and parks San Diego has to offer. The staff is friendly and the security is great. The sites are close together and there is no pool. The Wi-Fi is painful at peak hours, but most of the time it's okay and it's free (no TengoInternet here!). We can't wait to come back next winter.

Have stayed here twice. Each time it has been very good. Maintenance workers seem to be constantly policing the area. Very nice access to extensive waterfront parks and walkways. It is an all blacktop park, but does have some greenways and palm trees. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night, the park is located close to Interstate 5 and 8 for visiting attractions around the city. The sites are all asphalt with a small greenbelt and a tree between each site. The restrooms were nice, but could stand some updating; laundromat was clean. There is 24 hour security. There is a "snack shack" for breakfast/lunch items, a baywalk for walking/biking. Parking at your site for one vehicle, additional guest overnight parking outside the park for $5. I didn't try the Wi-Fi. The staff was very friendly.

Came here to spend a week with my daughter's family knowing the demographics would be outside of this full-timers comfort zone. Lots of unsupervised young children everywhere, especially in the roads that become very narrow because of all the big trucks protruding into the street. This does not stop their parents from driving too fast. Our back-in site was not sufficiently level for the auto-levelers to keep all wheels touching. That's disappointing considering the park is basically all asphalt with grass strips behind the rigs and a single tree between sites where a square has been cut out of the asphalt. The location of the restrooms results in a constant traffic flow through the adjacent sites, including sub-teens on bikes. My neighbor's water & power cords were just ridden over as I write this. Security seems to be doing a good job of suppressing unwanted noise. Following the viewing of Sea World's nightly fireworks, things quiet down until around 8am. All sites are back-ins at a right angle to the interior roads. Couple this with the trucks parked half way into the road and the constant flow of people of all sizes makes very tight and dangerous maneuvering. The physical attractiveness of the park rates at best a 6. Security gets a 10. The majority of my fellow campers fail miserably. But, then again, it is summer vacation at the beach, and the park is what I had been told it would be. For older teens, college kids, and crazies, 'woodstock' is across the bay. For those with younger kids looking for a place to turn 'em loose and then doing a little letting loose themselves, it gets an '8'. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Special discount for a full week (20% or 10% GS). Nice place right on the bay with a direct path to the bay walk & bike. Security entrance at all times. No “activities” during off peak season (we were here in Jan & Mar). It's expensive, but it's San Diego and (almost) every place is. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We took our granddaughter to Sea World and the SD Zoo Safari Park. The location is very convenient to Interstates 5 and 8 for visiting attractions in and around San Diego. As others have mentioned, it is an asphalt parking lot with strips of grass at the rear of each site. Back-ins only, no pull-thrus. I don't see this place as being an overnight stop, so for us this wasn't an issue. While I wouldn't call this a resort (no amenities), the sites are spacious for the location. There is a beach area on Mission Bay for the kids and adults. Yes, this is part of a "Harbor Community" that includes mobile homes, but to us they seemed well-kept, just old. They are separated from the RVers, although they do share the same entrance. A great location for biking or walking, no real traffic to be concerned with. The bathrooms were clean and functional, but did need some updating. The 'snack shack' had some great breakfast burritos. We will definitely return.

As others have said, this is a glorified parking lot, i.e., asphalt everywhere and basically no grass anywhere. The only reason to stay here is the location's proximity to San Diego. The Wi-Fi is intermittent at best, the Cable TV signal is awful, there are no amenities (pool, exercise room, etc.), and the park is surrounded by a mobile home park that is well past its prime. When you add the exorbitant rate, this park is a definite PASS unless you need to stay in the San Diego area. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a parking lot but a nice one. Spaces are just big enough, some have bay views. Security is top notch. Location is excellent, biking and walking along Mission Bay is fantastic. Lots to do on weekends. I would recommend this park strongly if you want to explore San Diego. There is a big dip in the road as you pull in but take it slow and you will be fine. Stayed a week . Would return. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Several of the shower faucets were broken and the tile in the showers was cracked and in my opinion kind of dangerous. Right on the bay and a long walk to anywhere so if you do not have a car plan on a cab. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is our second ever RV trip. It was great. We really enjoyed the San Diego area. The park is very secure. We liked the park. It is central to everything. We would stay here again. We camped at MIssion Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.
