We spent two enjoyable weeks in February 2014. Checkin was smooth, all our questions were answered and the camp host was helpful. Our site met our needs with full hookups including sewer and cable TV. (An improvement was made while we were there. The old push-down faucets in the mens room were replaced with standard faucets and you can get hot water again.) The location is great - adjacent to Admiral Baker Golf Course and access to the metro system. Green fees are reasonable and the course is pretty well maintained. (There are two 18-hole courses.) San Diego has an extensive trolley system and a stop is nearby in Grantville. A one-way ride for seniors is $1.25 so the two of us could ride downtown to visit the Maritime Museum, the USS Midway and other attractions for $5.00; a real bargain. I was disappointed with WiFi. Signal strength seemed satisfactory when accessible but it would connect for a time and then disconnect. It was very frustrating and I mostly relied on Starbucks (about a 20 minute walk) and cell phone data. It did seem a little better near the laundry room. The Sunday brunch at the golf course clubhouse was good and reasonably priced, opening at 10:00 AM. Another disappointment was a sign at the entrance to the golf course road which says no biking, jogging or walking. It is understandable because the road is narrow with no shoulders but it would have been nice to be able to walk to brunch and back. More on transportation: For longer stays, consider the convenience of a Compass Card for Metro Trolleys and Buses. If you are a walker, the station is about an hour away. There is free public parking adjacent to the stop and there were always available spaces when we came and went. If you do walk, look for a shortcut between Mission Gorge Place (street) and the trolley stop. The best way to find it is from the trolley station. Walk north down the road beside the east edge of the trolley free parking area, turn right at the auction and proceed along a row of small businesses. At the next street go left to Mission Gorge Place.

Many long term residents and spaces are some what tight. People staying in overflow when spaces are open and running generators for hours on end. Looks like the grass has not been watered in a long time around the RV park, but across the street in the recreation area it is nice and green and watered daily. Behind our space the grass is dead and now just dirt. Park needs to put a stay limit in place and then follow it. Could be a real nice place, but needs maintenance.

I made a reservation on 1/3/14 and cancelled it the next business day. I was not informed of a cancellation fee at the time I made the reservation but when I called to cancel was told there was a $30 fee for cancelling within two weeks of check in date. When I pointed out that I made the reservation less than two weeks from the check in date and was cancelling the next business day, she asked and received permission to waive the fee. Just submitting this review so others will be aware of this change in policy.

I've been coming here for several years but this is the worst it has been. Not only is the park open to the public, but there are RV's here on sites for way over the month limit and no one in them. Out of the 48 sites I've see 3 RV's just sitting on the site, kind of like storage. Appears to be that certain people can also stay in their sites all winter. So why is the Navy allowing this to happen? Also with only 48 sites, they are allowing the public to take sites and us retirees have no priority. Slowly all our benefits will be gone!

Camp was not the easiest to get into as you have to go down a huge hill on a small road with a very tight curve at the top of the hill. No pull through spaces and office is not handicap accessible. Spaces are close together. Except for a golf course, there is nothing to do within walking distance. No biking paths near by and was unable to ride to a path since there was the huge hill (the only way in and out of the park). No dog park and there is a park next to the RV park, but dogs are prohibited. Very nice playground for children and a pool in the community park. Very overpriced in comparison to other military parks. Watched a couple that decided to stay two additional days have to move three spaces down the same row because the staff was unable to tell the computer that the people that were checking in later that day were going to be in the other spot. Will never stay at this park again.

We always stay here when in San Diego. At $30 a night it is pricey for a famcamp but the civilian alternatives are all far more expensive. I would say the only negative are the old showers and bathrooms. They really need to be remodeled.

The RV park is OK but not a great one. The location is very good. The prices are typical since the Navy started charging $30/night. $25/night would be better. The laundry facility is good and the prices there are fine. The camp sites are OK for the most part but a few are too close to each other. The one next to us is a good example. Site #13 is one you want to avoid. The staff was very friendly. We would probably come back again.

W.C. left this review using the Directory software: - Have had a hip replaced 4 months ago, I can tell you this is no "handicap friendly" park. You must park in the parking lot and walk a goodly distance to the office. The young lady in attendance of the office is friendly, but no help at at all about parking. Big rig friendly not.

No pull throughs, all back in so if you have a big rig it's going to be tight. Spaces are also very close together. You can't beat the location....Qualcomm Stadium is 5 minutes. What I don't like about it is there is no monthly rate. MWR doesn't care to support a monthly rate even if the spaces are half full. Amazing to me.

We really enjoy staying there. Close to our grandchildren etc. the problem we have is they don't have a dog park and they don't enforce rules about dogs. The beautiful grassy area especially in the far corner of the park near the playground tends to be a toilet for dogs. I watched out our window when whew we're there and everyone with dogs let them pee or poop there. Some don't even pick up after them. I won't walk there or let my grand children walk on that area because of this unsanitary place.

Great campground for location. We visited the SD Zoo, PetCo Park, Balboa Park and the Naval base. Our only complaint was the wireless was not stable. We had it ....and then we didn't have it. Off and on (pun intended) during our stay. The office said they needed to wait for a manager to reset the router. We would stay here again if we visit San Diego. Great directions by the military campgrounds site...easy to find.

There are still problems with the office staff returning phone calls. I called Friday morning, June 22, for a reservation. According to JR the computer was busy, could he call back after requesting the type of RV. That was fine. No call back any time on Friday. A call on Saturday afternoon was answered by answering machine, promising a return call. When no call back came on Monday we changed destinations to a RV park in state, staying four days longer and saving the 600 mile drive each way.

Our experience was some of the issues in past reviews. The office staff were friendly and helpful. There is a need to better fill the sites. We understand you may have a full park booked and some of us had who had a need to extend would moved into overflow sites. During our stay the staff worked with us to extend our stay. The sites was fine, lots of room for pets. If we get back this way, we will make attempt to stay here.

You cannot beat the location if you plan on exploring San Diego, very close to the football stadium, 15 minutes from Sea World, the Zoo, Lego Land, etc... Getting into the campground is not bad at all, right off the interstate and the hill is not too bad as long as you are not pulling a trailer too big for your truck. Hospitality and check in could use some work, office closes at 5 and they hardly answer the phone when they are open. The night host who is supposed to take over at 5 was not there so we had to wait for a while in order to check in. The spots are close together but not bad; just be friendly. We have children so being backed up against a nice playground was great, also in the park is a very nice pool which is heated and has a water slide, it is $2 for adults if you are active duty dependent, active duty and children 10 and under are free. The golf course is great with two 18 hole courses, GPS enabled carts, and a nice clubhouse. Our price was $40 for 18 holes with cart and a bucket of balls on the range. All in all, if you want a full hookup campground in the middle of everything in San Diego you can't beat this campground location especially if you are a golfer. If the campground would put some more effort into hospitality then they would be top notch.

New personnel have been added to the staff. Glenda who **always** handled the desk issues with perfection has left for greener pastures. We had over $2000 (two thousand) charged to our credit card by inexperienced staff member Anna who with vigor denied she did the charges (she was only one working that day)...She did a $900 and two $750 charges. Until they get things straight...today they said one guest had to move out of there spot to the overflow and return the next day--to the same spot...again Anna... that was finally straightened out by anama...also she is very very unfriendly--does not even say hi or any other form of greeting...and has severe problems with the tense of the English language and does not explain her decisions resulting in a dictatorial encounter. I strongly recommend that guests no longer leave there credit card on file at this campground. We will be back as MWR upper management was very responsive in attempting to cure the overcharges ..which should have been a very simple credit reversal but turned into a needless flurry of denials and needless activity. Otherwise see our other review here.

April 2012

New personnel have been added to the staff. Glenda who **always** handled the desk issues with perfection has left for greener pastures. We had over $2000 (two thousand) charged to our credit card by inexperienced staff member Anna who with vigor denied she did the charges (she was only one working that day)...She did a $900 and two $750 charges. Until they get things straight...today they said one guest had to move out of there spot to the overflow and return the next day--to the same spot...again Anna... that was finally straightened out by anama...also she is very very unfriendly--does not even say hi or any other form of greeting...and has severe problems with the tense of the English language and does not explain her decisions resulting in a dictatorial encounter. I strongly recommend that guests no longer leave there credit card on file at this campground. We will be back as MWR upper management was very responsive in attempting to cure the overcharges ..which should have been a very simple credit reversal but turned into a needless flurry of denials and needless activity. Otherwise see our other review here.

Excellent campground vis-a-vis location, hospitality, amenities and overall value at $900 a month minus $100 special this month (Jan-Feb). We are staying 30 days plus 14 extension. We have to say the "hill" is not bad at all..it is not that steep and access into spaces was very easy backin...no rats or ants as some said..however we did spray ground and cables and supports every week with the plant-based eco-bug spray. Showers are very good-- and staff was VERY responsive to barking dog problem and cured right away (moved offender and told to secure the dog. Glenda and Panama were very friendly, helpful and both were sure to return calls ASAP.. This is our third, and longest, stay here at Baker and would not hesitate to come back again.. As others said it is close to everything you want in San Diego including 20 minutes down I-15 to probably one of the largest NEX/Commissary complexes in the world, certainly in the area. (32nd Street NBSD). There is a NEX gas station 5 minutes away on Aero drive, a largish VA clinic 5 minutes away, grocery and drug stores are 3 minutes down Friars/Mission Gorge..and since we are BIG movie fans, two giant AMC's are 15 minutes away in the Mission and Fashion Valley malls. And finally, do not worry about the spaces being close together.. they are not that bad...get to know your neighbors and things are great. The small valley shields a lot of the wind by the way...but this winter has been superb...75 def at Xmas and 70's all this month..low 40s at night..but get an electric heater and you save tons on propane. Hooyah... Rich and Stefanie PS- the only reason AB does not get 5 stars is that the noise level here can be high at times during morning rush hour...a 5 star place has to have it all...

A.H. left this review using the Directory software: - More on the ant problem. I stayed at Admiral Baker in Jan 2008 and had the same problem others are reporting currently. Never had an ant problem before or since. Had to fumigate the entire trailer to get rid of them. Four years and the problem continues? Somebody isn't trying very hard.

Admiral baker campground is the nicest campground we have stayed in but we are fairly new to rv'ing. We visited Sea World (ten minutes away), San Diego Zoo (ten minutes away) and Lego land (25 minutes away). The staff was helpful....even called to check on us when didn't arrive during business hours. Gave us the bathroom codes over the phone and told us which spot was ours. The bathrooms were always clean. Campground has a great play area for the kids. We didn't experience any issues with ants or rodents. We stayed here in a travel trailer.
