The Bell Family

"Four-Generations of the Bell Family Working Hard to Give you the Best Ever Southern-California Camping Escape"

Turn any corner at the San Diego KOA Campground in California, and you're likely to run into a member of the Bell family, hard at work to give you an extraordinary Southern California camping escape.

You'll see four generations of Bells operating this 2013 KOA Campground of the Year. That's not surprising, since the campground has always been a family affair.Ted and Carol first built the campground in 1968 to help raise extra funds for college for their three children. For Ted, the campground is his life's passion. You'll probably catch him working on one of his continuous park improvement projects such as the beautiful landscaping you'll find throughout the campground. Son Mike and wife Rowena joined the family campground business in 1975 after they finished college.  

Today youll find the third generation greeting guests and helping campers make lasting memories at the campground.  Look for Mollys never-ending smile at the special activities she has planned for you.  Guests love hearing Clints radio-voice as he delivers firewood or checks them into their sites.  Chef Courtney is turning out fresh, local Gourmet Pizzas at the San Castle Cafe. Josh is planning ahead for the newest attractions to bring to the park. Nannette makes sure you get the latest camping news on social media.

You'll see the fourth generation toddling around the playground, jumping pillows, and sampling kids meals at the Sand Castle Cafe to make sure it's all up to standards. When they arent at the campground the Bell family loves to go hiking, go to the beach, volunteer in community organizations, gather for family dinners, and teach the fourth generation the joys of camping.

From The Bell Family to Your FamilyHappy Camping!
