It was kid heaven with a skatepark, basketball court, private beach access, and rentals. However, don't go if you don't want crowds because it was PACKED full of people and kids running around every where. I liked the short walk to the beach even though the sand wasn't white or even light brown. They have limited access so the only... More

Place has gone downhill. While other places around California have improved, Campland has not. Wifi? False advertising as it never worked and guy in front admitted it was terrible. Don't plan on it if wifi is needed. Worst experience? Taking the family to eat at the restaurant at 6:20 PM to be told by the lady working there the kitchen... More

Expensive ($80/night), crowded, and sort of run down. They let long term people do what they want in the cheap ($80) areas. We had to get the people across from us to move their car out of the street to get into our space. After they moved their car my wife moved their kids toys out of the road. 50... More

We escaped the snow for a New Years trip to San Diego. This is an amazing RV park! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is if you are a regular RVer you will feel like you've been packed in like a sardine! If you can get over that, there is no other RV park I know of... More

The facilities are great: hot showers, clean heated bathrooms, pool & hot tub. However, the $73/night off season rate is pretty steep, considering: 1) camping-on-asphalt spaces are tightly packed 2) wifi is terrible - slow and keeps bumping you out, and 3) "services" are spotty: indifferent service at the cafe and market store opening hour of 8 am totally disregarded...

You camp in a dirt parking lot; 4' from your neighbor. I ended up forgoing a refund and renting a hotel the 2nd night. The "restaurant" if you can call it that was way overpriced for microwaved cheap junk. Think two old hotdogs and shared soda $15.00. The worst campsite I have ever been to in my life. I would...

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!
