The park has many rules, but not enforced. Kids on bikes, skateboards, motor scooters are everywhere! Our space was pretty narrow, so there was not room to park our vehicle next to our RV. Other campers had their vehicles parked everywhere, so the road in front was unpassable. People were nice. Very expensive at $108 per night. Most likely will... More

We really enjoyed this campsite. It has a great location, decent food options if you don't want your cooking, water fun, basketball, fire pit,and good amenities. They even have entertainment at night. It's just enough for you to camp without "roughing" it too much.

We had such a great camping spot. Neighbors not to close and did not crowd us in with extra cars. So many kids playing everywhere, constantly cruzing on anything with wheels most of the time parents are right there with them. Wife and the whole park just went wild for the Rolling stone legend band. Such an awesome weekend no... More

We stayed here for a week in early June. I thought we would make more use of the beach, but it was taken over by tons of jellyfish and crawfish while we were there! We did rent a pontoon boat for a few hours, which was great, and the activities put on by the campground were fun. They have a... More

If you're looking for large private camp sites, this is not the camping spot for you! If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is not the camping spot for you! If you're adverse to kids everywhere, don't choose this campground! However, if you're looking for a convenient base to explore San Diego, with entertainment for both kids and adults... More

Great place for RVer or tent. Clean, well maintained, large RV parking set up spots, staff was wonderful, helpful, friendly. Beach access, rental for bike, golf, carts, paddle boats or just kick back and relax. Store was well stocked and NOT over priced, restaurant was good. This is a secured area with rangers making the round 24 hours. Feels safe... More

We took 6 of our Grandchildren there two weeks ago - they range from 4 to 14 and they all had a great time - we loved the planned activities they set up and all the activities for all age groups. We will definitely come back again
