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

My wife and I brought our grandson here on 6/6 for the weekend to check it out for a family outing this summer. First it's way to expensive, we stayed in our motor home and it was $150 a night. The boat launch is very small no mooring dock on the launch ramp, and the boat trailer parking is taken... More

What a great place to stay! The whole campground has a great atmosphere, great facilities and a great location. It has everything you need for a vacation from 1 night through to 1 month. Highly recommended, we will be back. The only tiny complaint is that the shower heads are really low down, but that's nothing!
