I was here again this year for a Parrot Head Party and absolutely love this place! It's family and dog friendly with lots to do...or nothing to do. The beach is clean, the cafe has good food and friendly service. There is a game room for kids along with a pool, gym, and outdoor play area. The HUGE concern is... More

We went for a 4 day weekend to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary... This is a beautifully located park with lots of amenities, unfortunately it's not for us. If you are o.k with drunk adults driving golf carts quickly through the park. Really Loud music playing right up to quiet time 11p.m and dodging children running a muck, then this is... More

Stayed because it was close to kona kai where the wedding was held. Beautiful place. Be sure to tell them if you want 50amp service. Not all sites are 50 amp, we asked to be moved. They were very accomidating. It is worth the extra cost to have a better spot. The food at the BBQ was very good. I... 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

If The Woodstock Concert and Football Tailgating had a baby, they would name it "Campland". This place is absolutely INSANE. We ended up leaving early just to get away from the noise, chaos, and constant odor of weed. It is like each guest was given a giant bag of sugar at the gate (except my family) and the whole place...

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.
