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.

Being an annual attender of Campland on the bay for vacations is a real treat. With a beautiful sandy beach, plenty of activities such as: horse shoes, basketball, volleyball, bike trails, swimming pool, spa, planned activities through the park like flag football, concerts, and numerous other activities. Make sure to bring your pets along too!!!

I've been coming to Campland since I was 10 years old. Every year we get campsites on the bay with friends. Lots of fun for kids. Plenty to do and plenty of things to spend money on at the Marina. The beach area sites get a little loud on summer weekends, but they are good about enforcing quiet time at... More

This was my second year experiencing Campland on the Bay. Pitched a tent this year instead of renting a trailer. Still a very crowded campground with lots of offerings on-site: beach, boat ramp, aquatic rentals, restaurant, game room, laundry facilities, dog parks, basketball/dodgeball, swimming pool(not very clean), and concerts in the park. Credit to the custodial staff for keeping the... More

Very big park that is definitely for campers with children. Not an adult park. There were plenty of activities for everyone each day. The sites are very small for motorhomes and the hook ups are not the best. Too long to check in as we waited an hour in line. The beach is great and there is a lot of... More

Every place has its pro’s and con’s and this place was no different. However, in my opinion this campground had many more pro’s than con’s. This is a family campground and it IS packed!! But I for one liked it. There were kids EVERYWHERE on scooters, bikes, skateboards – what a great sight it was to see kids out in... More

We love camping here , This is a beach atmosphere so it is hopin on the beautiful san Diego summer weekend, full of families at play. So if your looking for that quiet wilderness time this is not it. But it is perfect for a fun filled busy weekend of water play. I love that they have lots of activities... More

We stayed there for the first time and it was a big MISTAKE. The place was cramped, sites were so close to each other. Cars were everywhere. There were so many kids on bikes, scooters and skate boards all over the place. The music was loud all day long. On top of that we had problems with ants. The only... More

Dear Vegascampers, You came to Campland during our highest season (July) when we are at or near 100 percent occupancy! For those not expecting this urban campground experience, particularly at its height, we understand your culture shock! We'd love to have you come back and compare your stay to one in early or late summer, the fabulous fall season or... More

We have only stayed here in winter and now we know why. It is way too many people, crammed into far too small a space. The sites are so close together there was a fingers width of space between us and the site next door, this in a "Premium" site. The proximity to the beach is the only real draw... More

We are sorry that you were not prepared for the high popularity of Campland in July. It is indeed a world of difference from the winter and in fact, from most months of the year! We are at or near full occupancy in July and it is very, very busy. Please write to us with your phone number so we... More
