We stayed at Chula Vista last month, it is a really nice park.  It backs up to a city park, right on the bay, marina pretty too.

The times we tried to get into CVM&RV it was filled so we wound up at the Chula Vista KOA. This was pre-satellite and I remember a lot of trees tho, so not sure about reception :D The city bus makes a stop right in the park and takes you to the trolley to get to SD or Mexico. We liked it.

Ken and Shiela,

We've stayed at Swee****er Regional Park.  You need to know it's also a park for horsecamping so there will be horses there.  When we stayed there we had the horses and a truck camper.  I wasn't all that impressed.  If I remember the sites are small.  I can't remember any hookups either.

There is another relatively unknown park off of Highway 52 near the #15 & 52 junction called Santee Park.  They have full hookups.  It's not as lush as Chula Vista; but it's in a good location, is a lot less expensive, is gated and near Mission Trails Regional park which is a nice place for hikes.  It's more north of San Diego whereas Swee****er is east. 

Let me know if you need any more information, we live just north of San Diego.

Marsha~

Maraha,  Bernie and cedar41,

Thanks for the input. We have stayed at Chula Vista marina & RV Park, but find the sites small and hate their charges for pets (last time we were there we had 4 strictly inside cats. $16 bucks for the "privilege" on top of the already high fees.)

The Swee****er campgrounds is fun with na group, but we consider it too remote to be convenient for other activities. The Olympic Village is nearby and a interesting tour.

I'd also endorse Santee Lakes RV Campgrounds. It's run by a water district and has full hookups. I'd advise checking soon for reservations as it's popular. A lot of children as families flock there.

Chula Vista KOA has been mentioned and it's a nice, quiet spot.

By all means, avoid Campland by the Bay. It's run downhill for several years.
