Overnight passing through? For a month? Want to be near the water? Way inland ok? Retired or active military?

Looking for a week, close to the water, retired Military. Want to go to Zoo and enjoy some great seafood. Several years ago we had the best clam chowder the wife has ever had, hopefully we can remember where it is.

Sorry, but if u want great seafood, gotta come to the East coast. Clam chowder? That's Maine, along with lobsters. Oysters & clams? Chesapeake Bay.
Ocean fish? Anywhere along the coast.

We stayed at Santa FE RV Park about 3-4 years ago - with a Passport America card it's 50% of the rate, and it was too good to pass up. Location as far as seeing things is good, however it is right on the highway.


Happy Travels!

Looks like fordsooperdooth has got you pretty well covered for military camping. Aadm Baker is inland about 8 miles from water. The Silver Strand of course is between water. Ocean one side, San Diego Harbor the other side. You might give them a call. Apparently the campground is in transition for some reason.

Note that there are two ways to get out onto the Silver Strand. Either across the bridge from San Diego directly into Coronado or down south via Palm Avenue (rt 75). through Imperial Beach.

If for any reason you can't get into The Strand or Admiral Baker, the remaining choices are expensive (near the bay, very much so).

If you don't mind being 20 or so minutes away from down by the bay definitely check out Santee Lakes. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood. There are some pretty good services a few miles to the east of there in what passes for downtown Santee.

On Mission Bay there is:
Mission Bay RV Resort (expensive, near Sea World)

Down along San Diego Harbor toward the south end there is:
Chula Vista RV Resort & Marina (again, expensive)

Up interstate 5 a couple miles above Mission Bay there is a fairly nice park on the east side of the freeway but not near water:
Santa Fe RV Park

Along interstate 8 up through Mission Valley about 8 miles east from the bay there is:
San Diego RV Park (Sunland)

After visiting the San Diego Zoo you might consider heading north up Interstate 15 about 35 miles to their Wild Animal Park (ooops. Nowadays it's the Safari Park). It's a little southeast of Escondido.(Up the road a couple miles is a bit of 1846 military history. Battle of San Pasqual . But really nothing much to see except the area where the battle took place. I think the small visitor's center is closed due to budget concerns.)

Just one other thought. If you are coming in from Interstate 8 out of Arizona there is the Viejas Indian Casino at exit 36. Get off and stay right on the north side of the freeway on Willows Road and keep going west on the access road a mile or so. They have RV parking but you will really have to look close for the place to pull in. Don't go up Brown Road to a pay RV park. Keep going a bit more. The RV parking lot has a bit of a slope to it. Maybe a good place to stop for a quick overnight or just for the buffet.

Do yourself a favor, check out Coastal Villa rv park on Moreno Blvd San Diego. You will not be disappointed.
