Overall Experience
We love this park! While the renovation took a lot longer than they anticipated, we feel it was worth the wait and booked as soon as we heard the park was open for business. There were a few bugs worth mentioning - the newest laundry/shower facility had issues with the keypad to the laundry room. It's electronic and failed several times on the weekend and locked out a few people who were doing their laundry. The staff responded, but it happened several more times. Wi-Fi is available but fee driven. It's provided by a commercial company and somewhat expensive. We simply set up our Verizon iPhone as a hot spot and just kept an eye on our data usage. Recommendation - if you get a site on the front row and have a class A coach, point the front towards the bay and make sure you have enough sewer hose to go under the coach to the sewer connection. Also, there is a TV cable connection on the utility tower (same configuration as the shore power towers at the marina) that isn't hooked up yet. We're not TV hounds so the 10 or so non-Spanish HD stations in the San Diego area were quite sufficient. The staff is still working on acquiring a cable provider. Secondly, they advertise fire rings at an extra charge, but have a limited number of them and didn't seem to know which sites have them and which didn't. Thirdly, if you are bringing children, the "beach" is really not an acceptable place to swim, only wade. It is silty with lots of seaweed. There is a nice beach on North Island about 7 miles away and a public beach at Silver Strand State Beach about a mile south of Fiddler's Cove. Lastly, we chose not to go over the Coronado Bridge on the day we arrived to avoid traffic and high winds. Traveling down I-5 and coming up 75 from Imperial Beach was a much better option for us. Overall, this was an excellent stay and value for us and we plan to come back!
