Campland Information, Rules & RegulationsOur primary goal is to make Campland on the Bay a happy, safe and relaxed place to vacation.
The rules and regulations are for the benefit of all campers and guests. If a particular camper is unable or unwilling to comply with them, he or she will be asked to leave the park immediately.
Our Rangers are available to assist you 24 hours a day. If you need assistance, please feel free to stop a Ranger as they patrol, or call them at 858-581-4219, or pick up any House Phone located at the A, D, G, M, and N bathrooms.
