We really expected this to be the best park we have visited. Unfortunately, the rules are not enforced and on a holiday weekend there are loads of kids on bikes, skateboards and scooters, riding on sidewalks and through empty sites.
One of our neighbors had a motorhome that looked as if it hadn't been washed in years. He had an old beater truck that he had to climb through the window to get into AND he had 4 small dogs.
One weekend they allowed a tenant to have a "flea market" in their site for 3 days. It was all junk and didn't do much for the ambience.
The staff is great. Great gift shop/market with reasonable prices. Groundspeople are very friendly, security not so much.
Bathrooms are clean and well stocked though they renovated 2 ladies rooms which required removing the windows that provided light and air. Now they are hot, humid and quite dark. If you turn on the lights a heater comes on which doesn't make it very comfortable on warm days.

Room Tip: The bay view sites are gorgeous! All sites are level with hedges separating the sites. Wifi is Tengo...

From the sounds of it, you weren't completely blown away by your recent visits, and we definitely appreciate you letting us know. Holiday weekends do get a little hectic around here, so I hope you'll accept my apologies that we weren't able to monitor the grounds as well as we would've liked to. As far as your neighbors go, we think the assortment of people that come and use our park just add to the charm of our location! I'm sorry if you felt that they took away from your experience at all. I really thank you for your feedback, and know that we take it all very seriously. Look forward to having you back in the future -- drive safe out there!

All the best,
Andrea, General Manager

Spent a week here in our camper. Back in site was plenty big. Sites are level concrete with all hookups. There is a small picnic table on the site. The do have some pull throughs. We came with out club and the staff was great to work with. Always maintenance people cleaning and sprucing up. They are very available for our club needs. Tuesdays they always have happy hour and Saturday morning coffee and OJ with donuts to purchase. We were here the weekend it was unseasonable hot so I found the internet dropping me frequently. But sitting in the pool area (which is now expanded) there was a great breeze.

Pool area well maintained and clean. Office staff very pleasant and helpful. This is a popular park so they ARE busy.

I really enjoyed walking along the path by the bay. People are friendly and there is a lot of places where kids were walking and playing. Just remember you must get a key to be able to get back in the gate.

There are several bathroom areas. The one closest to us was nice and the showers were fine. I didn't run out of hot water.

Room Tip: We were in 193 which was right in the middle of the park. No special view, and it was next to the wa...

Very friendly. Very clean. Great views from the bay view spots. Dog friendly. Reasonable pricing. Nice pool with family style gliders all around the park. Clean bathrooms. Only draw back was no fire pits. Looks like most of the regulars use a propane faux fire.

Thank you so much for all the kind words. and hope to see you back soon.

The staff was cheerful and friendly. The pads are level and clean. We had a Bayview and a Premium site. Both sites were great and the view is great. Walking along the bay as well as the marina. Peaceful. Clean. Dog friendly as much as CA allows. They have three doggie areas.

My better half and I just stayed here for a long Valentine's weekend without the kids. The park is beautiful and clean. while there is not a swimmable beach attached, there is a beautiful marina and and park area attached to the campground and the bay. Very friendly staff and visitors(mostly snowbirds). not a whole lot for kids to do, but with a dinghy, many attractions are a short drive away. Showers were spotless. Lots of park sponsored activities. i.e. happy hours, concerts in the park, brunches, etc. Highly recommended. See you again soon.

Great park, nice people, restaurants and shopping abound nearby.
Easy drive to all of San Diego's wonderful attractions. The office staff
have been nothing but wonderful to us. When I called for a site on the last trip
there in December, I was disappointed that they did not have a site available
in the area that we really like, but the lady on the phone said she would mark
on our file if a spot in the area opened to put us in it. When we arrived we were surprised
beyond belief when we got a spot just one spot from our favorite site location. I can't say
one thing bad about this park and we travel a lot.

Well this has to be the best RV Resort in San Diego hands up. From the time you register to when you leave there is nothing bad to say whatsoever. The park is spotless and very very clean with ever amenity you can think of. The quality of sleep at night is awesome as the is no highway noise at all which is rare in an RV park. Your location is good for every site seeing trip you could take. The price is reasonable for San Diego and well worth staying here. Not a ad site in the park. Right beside a Park and high end Marina so lots of places to take a walk with the dogs. Easy to get into and the sites are plenty big and concrete slab with privacy hedges all around. Do yourself a favour and don't bother looking anywhere else and just stay here as you will not be disappointed in any way. Two thumbs up here.

Room Tip: There are no bad sites.
