Pools & Spas – 2 + 2

Double the fun with Campland’s two pools and two spas. Whether it’s a family fun time at the pool or a refreshing dip after a bike ride around the bay, Campland has two sparkling pools waiting! Stay awhile, relax or sunbathe – there are sunny and shaded areas as well as umbrellas, loungers, and tables by the pools. One pool is shallower and designed for younger children.

If you’ve been out on the beach all day or just taken a Yoga on the Bay class, rinse off and indulge yourself in a spa/hot tub. Campland offers two hot tubs in the pool area, including the ever-popular horseshoe hot tub. Relax your muscles, improve your circulation and sleep even better at night!

Relaxing Public Beach 

Bring your beach chairs, umbrellas, sunscreen, and floats. Because of its location in Mission Bay, the beach at Campland enjoys calm, low-wake waters. Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach, and Mission Beach are nearby if you want to surf and catch waves. 

The public beach offers a designated swimming area with a swim platform. Many of our campers bring their floats, paddle boards, and kayaks and launch right from the beach.

Beach Rules:  Please refrain from bringing glass, tents, or motorized vehicles to the beach. All personal canopies and personal property must be removed from the beach between 8 pm and 8 am.

Free Coastal Access Public Parking – Campland offers 31 complimentary public parking spaces available daily on a first-come, first-serve basis for members of the general public accessing the beach at Campland. These spaces are not available for staff, campers, or other patrons. Public Parking window placards can be attained at the hospitality station near the entrance gate and help our staff confirm that these spaces remain available only for beach access by the general public.

Campland Loves Dogs

Don’t leave your best friend at home! Campland is famously dog-friendly. Dogwood Park at Campland is a landscaped, off-leash paradise for your pets. With the fresh bay air, real grass, and sprawling trees, your dogs will never want to leave (just like their owners). Meet fellow campers and dog-lovers at Dogwood Park and watch the friendly dogs play.

This amenity is for resort guests and their dogs.

Special Events and Activities

Pet Costume Contests are very popular with our Campers. Halloween, Christmas, and Easter are awesome days to show off your beloved pooch. And, of course, there are prizes.

No worries if you run low on pet supplies; the Campland Market has a full stock of pet food, treats, and even toys to keep your pet happy.

Dog Policy

Campland’s 50+ years’ experience, as well as standard industry practice, support the prohibition of specific dog breeds at our family-friendly campground.

Our pet policy strives to strike a balance between care and comfort of pets and people and is more permissive than experts recommend.

At Campland on the Bay, we are proud to be one of the most dog-friendly RV resorts in the nation! Our canine campers are socialized and well-behaved so they can take part in all the family fun on the bay.

Please read our Rules & Regulations for specific breed restrictions.
