Campland on the Bay - San Diego Waterfront Camping

Waterfront Location

When it comes to a San Diego family resort, Campland’s location can’t be beaten. Situated on the shores of Mission Bay, you will enjoy a sandy beach, marina, and plenty of wildlife. Many of our camping sites have waterfront views and all are a short walk to the beach. Enjoy the coastal breeze from your site!

Many of San Diego’s top attractions are a short drive:

Neighboring the resort to the West is the Kendall Frost Nature Reserve, which occupies 16 acres of protected wetland habitat that is home to a diverse range of birds and animals.

Unlike traditional camping, Campland has a wide array of amenities available to guests. There is fun for the whole family! Grab the kids, sunscreen and towels and head to the 2 sparkling pool and 2 spas (including a horseshoe spa – a camper favorite!). Or enjoy the calm waters of Mission Bay at the sandy beach. In summer months, kids love screaming down our beachfront waterslide. Our young campers love climbing, sliding, and swinging in our large fenced-in playground just for them!

Explore Mission Bay with our onsite water sport rentals. Kayaks and pedal boats are a great way to get some exercise and enjoy the calm waters of the bay. Or gather your family, pack a picnic, and rent one of our Pontoon Boats to explore all Mission Bay has to offer – cruise past Fiesta Island, get a closer look at Sea World from the water or just relish in the San Diego sunshine!

Other amenities include:

  • Market & Coffee
  • Cantina – bar & food
  • Arcade – dozens of gaming machines. Kids want to spend hours in here!
  • Sports Courts – pickle ball, basketball and more!

Grab the whole family and head over to BINGO night (one of our most popular activities!) or Family Olympics. During the summer, Campland Rocks hits the stage at Central Park every Friday and Saturday night. Enjoy live DJs and tribute/cover bands under the stars.
