Ultimate Guide to RVing at Mission Bay RV Resort with Kids

Mission Bay RV Resort


Location, location, location, the thing I love the most about Mission Bay RV Resort is the location. Just minutes from my favorite San Diego hangouts, Mission Bay RV Resort always provides ample opportunity for a fantastic family weekend. The views are gorgeous, the grounds are beautifully maintained and there are always plenty of events to keep the kids entertained.

Drop Your Bags

There are plenty of options for great lots. It really depends on what is important to you. Some have views of the bay, some are located near the beach and the rest are scattered in between. We like spots 252 through 260, because there is a “no pull through” zone that is perfect for allowing the kids to play safely. Daily rates range from $95 to $65 depending on the site location. Mission Bay RV Resort also offers monthly rates ranging from $1275 to $875.

Get Your Grub On

Everyone loves the Snack Shack. Kids love riding their bikes or skateboards up to the window to purchase tasty treats. Papa wakes up earlier than the rest of us (before the sun) and would enjoy an early breakfast at the Snack Shack every morning. We bring have jumbo percolator at our RV, but for if you buy the Mission Bay RV coffee club to go mug, you get refills for .50 for life!

The snacks are pretty inexpensive, ranging from $1 to $7 and there is always some sort of special going on. For instance, on Fridays the hot dogs are $1 during select hours. The Boss (my nephew) was very excited to find $3 in his pocket and made the executive decision to buy himself two and Grams one. He really enjoyed the independence of rolling up to the Snack Shack whenever he wanted to buy a snack. One morning the tart tots were on special and he surprised the kids with a couple orders. Very sweet, although I kept joking that he was going to spend all his birthday morning that he has been hoarding for something special at the Snack Shack.

On movie night, the Snack Shack was handing out popcorn for $1 in darling red and white popcorn boxes. CuddleBear is just like his mama and LOVES popcorn!

The most popular item for sure, is the shaved ice! For $3 the shaved iced comes in a huge cup with the choice of two flavors. Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day at the beach and we had to make a shaved ice stop at least once every day.

If you want to venture of the RV resort, there are plenty of dining options nearby. When we stay at Mission Bay RV Resort we always sent a day aside for Old Town San Diego. Good food. Great drinks. Good times. For more information on Old Town click HERE or where to drink in Old Town click HERE.

When you are RVing it is BYOB and we start every morning with HotDaddy’s special Bloody Mary. When camping at the beach make sure to bring more water than you think you need. It is amazing how thirsty you can get!

Entertain Me

How can RVing at the beach not be entertaining, right? Every morning, waking up and running out to sand. The kids love splashing around in the bay and HotMama loves it, because there are no waves. You can rent paddle boards and paddle boats for more water fun or take the kids to the play ground. As if a day at the beach isn’t tiring enough, take the kids to the playground for the last push to really wear them out.

  1. […] Mission Bay RV Resort: The best value and a ton of fun. We love to park the RV for the weekend at Mission Bay, because it is on the bay and it is so close to Old Town. We like to take the kids for a dip in the bay in the morning and then spend an afternoon in Old Town. Rates start $65 a night and only $95 for bay view. A whole weekend at Mission Bay RV Resort is less expensive than one night at a hotel. We usually travel with a large group so this is the most cost effective way to stay and play. […]
