We stayed at campland last weekend Aug 19-21. When we got to our camp site. A guy approached us asking if we were staying there and we said yes. He felt bad and warned us that the family staying on the campsite next to us were rowdy and some other descriptions that's derogatory so I wont mention it (but came... More

Great family vacation. We rent RVs in San Diego and have them delivered and picked up. This was our 5th year going. We go every July. There is anywhere from 50 to over 100 of us family members and friends that go. Lots of stuff to do; they offer many activities and rentals. Bathrooms and showers are clean. There is... More

Great spot, VERY BUSY, so don't plan on a quiet camp experience. They really take care of the kids, ton of activities and fun for children. We like to sit in our spot and watch everyone cruising the campground. Great location and amenities.

Two pools, two spas, beach access all water crafts available for rent. Very family oriented and always something going on for the kids. Crafts, soccer, flag football and don't forget to bring the kids bikes. Most spots are dirt so I recommend to bring tarps to lay out under your camp area before you put your stuff out.

Mayhem. Unsafe. Overcrowded. Chaos. Described as "urban" but that should mean all paved, close together, not pandemonium with people in various states of sobriety, not monitoring their children who dart all over the place, in and out of traffic without regard for their own safety, often times being towed on skate boards or bikes by adults in golf carts. Staff... More

Campland gets busy, especially at the peak of the summer season since it is a fun-filled tradition that countless families have looked forward to for the past 45 years (and counting)! For a quieter vacation, we recommend visiting later in the summer or in the fall. Thank you for your feedback. More

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

Summer at Campland is most definitely family time. After 45 years, Campland has become a family tradition for 3 generations of families during the summer, and it can get a bit overwhelming for a camper seeking a quiet non-urban experience. We suggest coming back in late August - November or early Spring. The weather in San Diego is fantastic, and... 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.
