We booked 2 nights here because campland was full, we planned 8 days for our trip 2 at mission bay rv and 6 at campland.
We arrived at about 8:10pm and checked in with security since the office had already closed. Security was nice and effecient. The problem began when we got to our spot. First off, people don't park within their spot, they hang out in the road making it hard for others to pull your trailer or rv down to your spot.
So we get to our spit and we pull in and we can't access our hookups because of where they are located. I told them what our trailer was when we booked but they put us in the one spot with a pole right at the end so we could back in enough. We were backed up to a grassy area and a lot of trailers were hanging over into the grass but we couldn't do that because of the pole. Also electric and water hookups are in the middle of the camp spots next to you. So plan on bringing extensions for all your hookups.
So we borrowed a hose from our neighbor (the other guests were nice enough) to get some water but that was it. We slept with all of our windows open because of the heat. There was no noise restrictions enforced and a lot of people were very loud playing music and yelling back and forth which kept me up for quite a while. It was very quiet in the morning with all the partiers sleeping in though.
When I went to check in at the office the next morning I mentioned that we couldn't hook up to anything because of where the hookups were located. The guy said he wanted to check it out and when he got to our spot told me that our trailer was longer than what I told them. I said no, look right there on the trailer that is what size it is and that's what all of our paperwork says the length is. He said I could go buy extenders but they don't have any on site. I told him I wasn't going to spend extra money for one night and I said so I'm basically sol then? And he said yes. I called over to campland to see if there were any cancellations and luckily there was a spot so we packed up and left. They did give me a refund without a fuss because apparently there were a lot of people waiting at the park next door to get in.
Overall, I would never go back nor would I ever recommend this place to anyone that I like. I would risk the $50 fine for camping in mission beach parks parking lot before going back.
