Review Detail4.2 5
The campground at Point Loma Naval Station is a parking lot directly on the bay at San Diego with striping to accomodate RVs. These RV sites are all boondocking sites. The views and location don't get much better and the spacing between sites is fairly reasonable. Before you arrive, I would disconnect your towed vehicle before going through the gate. The plastic barricades are too close together which makes arrival on base a challenge. For those who have fifth wheels or travel trailers, just go slow, and be careful through the gate entrance, and you should be okay. If you aren't comfortable, they are plastic barricades and can be moved, but the gate security is often there alone and probably won't be much help. They do have showers and restrooms, but haven't had a code device installed on the exterior doors yet, so they are only available for use during MWR working hours of 9am to 4pm. We stayed for three nights so we didn't have to use a local dump station, but if you do need a dump station, the closest one is at 2540 East Mission Bay Drive about 5 miles away. I would definitely visit Cabrillo National Monument which is about 4 miles from this base. The history of this Spanish Explorer is interesting, but the views of the bay and San Diego from this high elevation point leading in to the bay are magnificent. Also, not far is Liberty Station. These are renovated older Navy facilities to new shops, restaurants and a brewery. Nice easy place to shop or eat out, and only a mile or two from the base.
