Friendly staff and a great location on Mission Bay. The park has a good number of amenities available including a pool and spa, cafe, store and nice laundry. There is a very nice green area and an area for children to play safely. Not a "fancy" place, but homey. Reasonable prices for the area with easy access to many sightseeing...

Great location for RV experience in beautiful Mission Bay. Campground F19 has good views of nature preserve and bay. Enjoyed kayaking and beach, also lots of bike routes nearby. There was a cog in sewer connection for trailer but maintenance was dispatched quickly and fixed the problem.

Fantastic customer service from the lady at check in. So welcoming and friendly. Site was what we expected - even if we were at first alarmed to be right next to the dumpster and have our outdoor setting on a little mound behind us.

If you're camping then this is definitely one of the better campsites to stay at. It has wifi, powerful showers, laundry, store and a beach right next door! The beach has water sports as well. Also has a nice pool to chill and catch some rays! :)

We always enjoy the Parrot Head Party at Campland! Campland's current lease ends in November 2017 but is in positive negotiations with the city staff to extend the lease for another 3 years. We fully expect to provide our campers with uninterrupted camping experiences for generations to come!

Thank you for your feedback. It sounds like you were at Campland on an especially busy weekend, and you are right, if you come during the weekend and/or off-season (late Fall or early Spring), your will have a much more mellow, quiet experience. We hope to see you back again.

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.
