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... More

This is our third year coming and we look forward to it each summer since our first time here. I think it depends on what part of the park you are at that determines the experience. We like the F section as it appears to be more quite. The area closer to bay appears to be louder and where people... More

If you don't have kids, please don't go. - do you like country music, heavy metal, oldies, Indian? if you don't like to be entertained by others people "loud" music from sun up to sun down (11:00 pm) don't go. If you have manners, respect for others and expect the same from others--- well you know. This is the type... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay. We're sorry that your visit was not as relaxing as you had hoped. For campers that would like a more peaceful experience (summer is a busy place at Campland), we recommend September - November. The weather is gorgeous and Campland is a lot quieter. Again, thank...

Lots of things to do for kids, we used to bring our grandkids and now the grandkids bring their kids. Kids loved it. I still remember sailing in the Bay with the grandkids. Great fun! Great getaway from the hustle and stress of urban life.

I've been an avid RV camper for some time, even with kids. In fact, I just returned from a trip from Albuquerque to New York City where we stayed in seven different campgrounds across the country. Campland on the Bay was not what I expected. I stayed there for two weeks and I couldn't wait to leave. I suppose I'm... More

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor. We are truly sorry that the experience did not live up to expectations, but unfortunately, it sounds as though it was mostly due to your insensitive neighbors.

I had never heard the term 'urban-camping' until after spending two nights at Campland on the Bay, but I understand what it means now. We had two adjacent campsites, with 3 parking spaces, up against the fence facing the nature reserve. I'm guessing summer in San Diego is their high season because there weren't many available campsites. It was a... More

Lots of things to do for kids (3, 5, and 8). Pools were very fun - there are two with two different temperatures. Showers were wonderfully clean. Pros - pools, access to bay beach, marina with rentals, playground, clean restrooms Cons - beach very littered, some rules (no shade structures on beach before 8 am) enforced but others are not...

It's hard to say exactly how we would review the Campland on the Bay. We had a varied experience during our stay. When we arrived, the line of vehicles just to get into the place had us questioning our choice. Luckily it was because it was Father's day Sunday and the crowd really thinned out the following day.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Campland in beautiful Mission Bay! Yes, Campland can be a busy place, especially in the height of summer or on a holiday weekend (like Father's Day)!
