I’ve done all kinds of camping in my day, but I’d never been “kamping” in San Diego before. The San Diego KOA (Kampgrounds of America) is located in the southern part of the county in Chula Vista. The property is quite large, with over 300 sites for RVers and tent campers, along with 35 cabins (or as KOA spells it, “kabins”), including a handful of deluxe accommodations, which is where I stayed.
The deluxe cabin can sleep six comfortably with a private bathroom, full kitchen, loft and your own private BBQ and fire ring outside. If you stay in one of the traditional log cabins, be sure to bring your own linens…those accommodations are kind of in between a tent and a motel—best part is…you can spend the afternoon relaxing on a shady porch swing.
The public restrooms have hot showers and are quite clean with private stalls. There is a central Kamping Kitchen for camp-goers to share…it includes everything you can think of in a traditional kitchen, however you get to do it in the great outdoors of sunny San Diego.
There are a ton of fun things to do at the San Diego KOA…from the heated pool & spa, to a myriad of bike rentals, game-room, basketball court, ping pong, playground, to a rock climbing wall.
Of course, outside the campgrounds, San Diego has a lot to offer, from the famous San Diego Zoo to SeaWorld, Old Town, Balboa Park, Cabrillo National Park, Gaslamp Districts, to Seaport Village and a whole lot in between.
