Helpful information for first time guests

Mission Bay RV Resort is an iconic destination located on the world’s largest aquatic park, Mission Bay. We have been welcoming guests for over 40 years! Many guests return year after year to enjoy this calm and quiet retreat on De Anza Cove. If you are planning your first visit to our RV resort, we’ve gathered some things to know before arriving.


Mission Bay RV Resort is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the San Diego weather. We are a quiet resort for those who want to spend time unwinding in a calm and tranquil atmosphere.

If you are looking for a more vibrant scene, all guests of Mission Bay RV Resort have access to the amenities and activities at our sister resort across Rose Creek, Campland on the Bay! They have organized activities such as bingo, a concert series during the summer and a Cantina to grab food and cocktails.


Our campsites are all pavement. You may want to bring a rug or mat to place outside your RV door. Mission Bay RV Resort has been welcoming campers for over 40 years. It was built when RV and campers were much smaller than they are today. This means our sites may be narrower than what you are used to. Be sure to input your rig size when making a reservation so we can match you up with the right site.


We have free Wi-Fi that is available for light web surfing. Some campers have issues receiving the wifi within their RVs. Bring your laptop outdoors for a better signal – enjoying the San Diego weather is an extra bonus! Feel free to bring a booster if you need strong Wi-Fi inside your RV. 

De Anza Cove Cleanup

Our team is working hard to secure approval from the Coastal Commission to safely remove the abandoned mobile homes surrounding our resort, repair the bike and pedestrian paths, among other improvements. Despite unavoidable delays caused by the pandemic, our team has been working tirelessly to move this project forward as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience.
