This place is an all time favorite of my boys including husband. It's a camping kind of feel with the bay (not beach) and showers and laundry lil store (kind of exspensive) plus pool ( toooo small and always crowded) and skate park and basketball.. Tons of places to rides your bikes around. People can be drunken and rowdy but... More

They have thought of everything. Besides being close to Downtown, Old Town, and several major attractions, there is something for everyone. Ping pong, skateboard park, games arcade, little restaurant with patio area, Store, laundry, tennis courts, swimming pools, gym, downtown/old town/sea world shuttle (free) not to mention direct access to the bay and watercraft hire. At first I thought being... More

# friends and I stayed at Campland on the Bay for a long wkend in November and the place provided us a great place to park our RV and explore from there. Shuttle busses into San Diego's major attractions proved very useful and got us to the major transit centre as well. Was easy to get around from there. Campground... More

We stated here for a week and loved it. It's a little crowded on the weekends, but it emptied out by Sunday afternoon. We were in loop A, it was a bit dirty, because our site was on dirt, but there are grass sites in that loop next to the bathrooms. They do a great job keeping the site and... More

Firstly I can not comment on the price as I stayed here as part of Trek America so this was all included in the price. I stayed here for 2 nights and can't complain about anything, we were given a big pitch for all of our tents, there was a café and shop at the entrance of the park which... More

We picked Campland on the Bay for the spectacular views and location, but overall the experience was only so so. The staff around the park was less than helpful and almost seemed annoyed by our questions. The laundry facilities had an "upgrade" while we were here that changed the machines from coin operated to credit card payment. Many of the... More

Campland on the Bay is a place to camp for the adventurers like me or so I thought. What a ripoff! $60 for one night, you are given a tiny spot to plant your tent ON THE DIRT! Campground has a market at the entrance, café, stage for concerts, bike and boat rentals, jungle playground for kids, grassed area to... More

After living in San Diego for almost 40 years my husband and I enjoy staying in our small travel trailer at Campland on the Bay to visit friends and family twice a year during the off season only. Off season is an important planning consideration since Campland is a huge (and expensive) campground with very small sites that are usually... More

We went here to check the price as were camping nearby. We asked how much a pitch was for us in our small camper. We've been to 45 countries in it and camp every night over a period of two years and "we can't let you stay as your car was designed as a camper". Well its been OK for... More
