We stayed here for 4 nights right before Thanksgiving. We were surprised to see how tightly all the RV's were packed in. The beach (on the bay) was nice and clean, there were at least 6 bathhouses, outdoor dishwashing sinks, two pools, two spas and a very nice playground for kids. We probably won't choose this place again, as it... More

The expensive rates pay for the amenities here, not the accommodations. First, the bad: This place is truly infested with ants. We have camped in places much more rustic than this but never had ants inside our trailer as we did here. Our trailer is always spotless and any food is sealed in double airtight containers so were weren't doing... More

We appreciate your candor, LuvAZTravel and we seek this kind of feedback to continually improve. We apologize for your discomfort and are disappointed that it marred what sounds like an otherwise good experience. The control of ants at our campground has been a complicated challenge and we have perhaps been too conservative in our approach. Our concern always has been... More

Pulling in we felt a bit guilty, as we were assigned a spot that blocked our neighbor's view of the water - basically our RV was backed up 5 feet in front of their windshield. So check carefully whether you are signed a "back-to-back" space. Otherwise this place is a blast. 30 steps from our RV we were able to... More

A nice friendly site with good facilities. Stayed here with some friends and would defiantly stay here again, has a good shop and laundry services. Within driving distance of some very nice San Diego beaches, the beaches are very clean. Nice site. Keep up the good work!

Campland by the Bay is one of my favorite campgrounds. More amenities, events, and activities than imaginable. As campgrounds go, this one is is overpriced but somehow worth it and is a clean, safe place for kids and people of all ages. I would recommend it highly and will definitely be back.

This place is a blast. Not only do you have the bay to play in, there is a pool, skate park, volleyball court, and may other things to do. Oh, on site restaurant and ice-cream parlor also help. People are super friendly. Place is kept very clean. Only draw back is the high season crowds. But you will have that... More

Campland is somewhere everyone should experience! After a very quiet stay at an RV resort in Anaheim, moving to Campland was a bit of a shock to the system. There are approximately 620 campsites and in the A area where we stayed, there are a majority of tent campers. This is a great spot for kids of all ages, people... More

This is really a resort where you bring your own room, so to speak. It has some nice landscaping, and everything was impeccably clean, but it felt like I was camping at Disneyland. Yes, as per the other reviews there are amazing amenities! There are multiple pools, hot tubs, a beach, sail boats, planned activities, a camp store that is... More

We stayed at Campland the last week of July with our six year old boys and had a blast. The park includes both tent and RV camping spots with full hook ups for RV's. Restrooms and showers are available for tent campers. A private beach, boat ramp, and toy rentals including wave runners are available. A store, laundry mat, and... More

This is our third year coming to Campland & we are already planning our trip for next year. Excellent RV campground for families with kids of all ages. Love the fact that it is a private beach with fireworks from Seaworld nightly. Beach is clean & water is warm being on the bay.
