The ants at this campground are out of control! They were all over our tents. They were in the trees, bathrooms, etc. You name it, they were there. The staff at check in at this location are great. Don't bring an alarm clock. Around 2,000 + birds in the trees begin at 5:00am and don't stop until around 5:30-5:45am. :) KOA's are nice places to camp with great amenities!

What a wonderful time our family had! We loved everything about this stay. We can't wait to return. Very kid friendly. Thank you for everything!

Campground site was filthy! Cigarettes in grill, old wood and cardboard on the floor. People were lovely. I know it was economy, but I felt fenced in - not camping.

This was our 8th trip to San Diego Metro KOA. We, again, enjoyed our stay and our annual trip on the Bay Shore Bikeway, with a stop at Kansas City BBQ. See you next July/August, if not before.

Great family camping! Plenty for everyone to do. A shade over the bounce pillows would be nice so the kids don't burn their feet

A nice three night getaway that included a cleansing rain shower. Very clean park and very dog friendly. All within 3 hours of home and 20 degrees cooler! We will visit again.

We had a late check in and the staff made it super easy for us to get checked in fast. Our cabin was very clean and we would definitely recommend this KOA .

Rude awakening to hundreds of birds squawking at the break of dawn. Too early for normal people on vacation. Then the major ant problem that seems downplayed at this campground. We are still dealing with the infestation in our RV upon our return home. Not cool when your trying to get the RV ready for storage and after an already exhausting trip.

The staff is fantastic. They are very helpful. The park is amazing. Plenty of great things to do for my 10 and 11 year old boys. My favorite place to stay.

This was my first time at a KOA but it definitely won't be my last. The San Diego area facility has everything you could want for in a family vacation.

Great stay. Campground is very clean and staff is always professional and kind.

This park needs to do something about the crows! They wake you at 430 every morning and my truck and fifth wheel are covered in bird mess! Other than that it was good place.
Jul 30, 2014
Absolutely loved your campground. Clean,friendly desk clerks and grounds men. Will definitely be back.

The delux cabin was great and a lot of fun. The price is high especially to walk into beds not being made with bed in a bag kits to do it yourself. The beds were also extremely uncomfortable and made the worst, loudest sound with even any slight movement. When you pay over $200 you expect a little more. There were too many kids unsupervised that would follow us around especially asking for money.

Very nice camp ground. Very well kept. Staff was very friendly.

We had a great site and enjoyed our stay, however the setup with sprinklers was very frustrating. To have pack everything away each night was a hassle - especially because we had a small campervan with limited storage space. We wanted to be able to leave our camp chairs and firewood out every day. Besides that it's a fun and busy place.

The tent cabin we stayed in was great: huge for two people, and it was quite nice to have a fridge. The staff person I spoke with on the phone was very helpful and friendly. The restrooms were an absolute nightmare. Filthy, old, and utterly disgusting. We left early and got a hotel room for our last night rather than confront the grossness for another evening. I've seen cleaner portapotties.

A bit crowded, but otherwise a nice park.

My husband & I camped with our four daughters ranging from 10-13. They enjoyed all the activities and, surprisingly, stayed off their iPods/phones for most of the four day trip! We really loved the little cabin & the nice kitchen to cook in! The staff was awesome!!! We will be back & recommend to our friends & family!
Jul 29, 2014
It is the best to camp. The activities were extremely fun. Everybody that was wearing a yellow shirt were so friendly. Customer Services is the BEST! Thank You! Highly recomend it!

Grateful to get a spot last minute even if it was the economy space.

We love this place. Having been coming 25+ years. Wouldn't go anywhere else in SD. Staff are very caring and helpful. Camp is always maintained and clean. Its the "Marriott" of camping. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Friendly staff. Well maintained grounds. Lots of activities for the kids. Close enough to area attractions to be a good "base camp". The whole family enjoyed it.

WE WERE IN 8007, WORST SPOT IN KOA. DIRTY, DIRTY. TRAFFIC BAD ON ROAD. BIRD DROPPING, HAD TO HAVE MOTOR HOME WASHED. NEVER STAY IN THAT SPOT AGAIN.

Stayed for 3 days during Comic Con 2014. Awesome campground very clean. About the only thing and I know there is nothing that can be done, is the birds in the morning squawking and dropping stuff. Still a great place to stay for vacation. Highly recommended.

Please note I rarely camp so I don't have a lot 2 compare this location 2 but it was just very noisy & dirty. Our site neighbors were allowed 2 arrive & start setting up tent @1030pm. Kids were running around & music was being played until 2am. Bathrooms & showers were very dirty & a lot of ants in the showers. Crow/bird population info should b noted on website 2 potential guests-cuz noisy @ 5am!
Jul 28, 2014
All of the staff members were very polite and helpful. very clean campground, clean pool, lots of things for the kids to do. Had lots of fun. I recommend this campground to all. I loved the live band on Saturday night.

We had a great time and our child loved all the fun activities. All the staff were wonderful!

We love San Diego KOA and can't wait to return. We spent a week enjoying the beauty of the campground, the many activities for the childen and adults, the expertise of the large staff. Everything was perfect -- and I love the crows!!!

We bring our four grand children here each year. They talk about what a great time they have until the next time we take them. There are so many activities for kids. The staff is just wonderful, they're friendly, efficient and enjoy their jobs. The San Diego KOA is the model all other camp grounds and many hospitality organizations should copy if they want to provide top notch service.
Jul 28, 2014
This was a Great RV Park with lots of activities for the kids. The activities, the pool and the campground was amazing. I would definately stay here again.
Jul 28, 2014
Talk about a destination Kamp Ground! We love coming here from Encinitas. The Owners and Staff are wonderful. Plenty to keep you busy and all at a great price. Only bad thing is they pack in a lot of campers close together and if you are in the RV section, there tends to be a strong sewer smell.
Jul 28, 2014
This trip was fantastic! The facility is great, the pool and the pillow bouncing area kept the kids entertained for hours.
Jul 28, 2014
Everything was clean, all the amenities we needed were walking distance from our tent. The staff was friendly and we never felt unsafe. Painless, effortless and very well managed :)

Although we love the San Diego KOA, we were a little disappointed in the site we were assigned on this stay. It was very small, and felt we had no privacy from the sites next to us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. Please note that we are happy to take requests for areas of the park and sites. Though we cannot promise a specific site number at this time, we do our best to fulfill each request.

Great camping experience for inexperienced campers! We love the pool, hot tub & live music! We had two complaints, one is a nature issue and probably not able to be rectified, the CROWS. They were so loud from 5:30-6:30am. The other complaint is the golf carts and vehicles driving and entering a warehouse type of area all night long. We will be back but request a different tent location!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We are more than happy to take site requests for your upcoming reservations. While we cannot promise specific site numbers we will do our best to fulfill each guest request. The Crows are very persistent despite our efforts to dissuade them!

In a word ANTS. My family and I were eaten alive by ants. KOA solution was Raid. So our deluxe cabin was saturated with Raid. Great for the kids.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you encountered ants during your stay. For the interior of the cabins we use a bait system and on the exterior a spray product, but Raid is the only safe substance to spray inside. We continue to try and control the ant population and thank you for your comments.

Tent camping next to an interstate highway was not my idea of a restful night. Seems the tents should be on the other side of the park. Also parents should be asked to curb their children from screeming in play, not everyone thinks its funny! We wont come back or suggest this KOA to anyone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your stay and your comments. We share your desire for all guests to exercise courtesy during their stay. We are sorry that you did not have a restful night. We hope to continue to add and relocate tent sites as the urban environment continues to influence the area.
Jul 27, 2014
It's a really great place, the people working there are the best. At times the wifi doesn't work at all though and we were woken very early every morning by what seemed to be 1000's of crows.
