Chula Vista RV resort San Diego??

Looking to spend about 5 days here.
I know it's pricey but other than that- anyone
been there? Thoughts?
We like the fact they are right on the bay.
We've never been there and probably never go back.
We have bikes and hope to be able to ride them to some of
the attractions in the area. Can that be done?

Thanks for any info you can share!

I have used Chula Vista a few times and it is a nice quiet RV Resort.
Kind of a gated community with most spaces tight if you have slides on both sides.
Great access to the beach walk if you like walking the dog or biking.
Weather can not be beat. The marina restaurant has fairly reasonably priced meals.
You can go down to Tijuana Mexico easily.
For you stay of 5 days I think you will like it.


If you need other suggestions after Chula Vista let me know what direction you plan to go.

Chula Vista RV resort San Diego??

Ironically we are planning a stay here too. My concern is the public transportation to sea world and the zoo. We are brand new to having a MH and are worried about driving it in San Diego to get around. I don't have the ability to pull a vehicle. Is there any public transportation to the zoo and / or Sea World? Is Uber a good option but what if I have kids under four. Can I Uber and require car seats in Cali?

Both Sea World and the Zoo have RV parking and both are right off the freeway.
What size is your MH?

Not sure why you can't pull a toad with your motorhome.
Unless it's a Class B.
With kids you really need a toad.

You could give them a call or email them and ask them if alternate transportation is available.

This will be the maiden run of the MH. We will pull a Toad in the future but just not this trip.

MH is 31 feet Class C. It should pull my Jeep JK eventually but the JK is about 2000 miles from the RV right now.

Thanks for the info on the RV parking we may just pull up stakes to head to those places. Also, I will call them. Maybe they have an idea.

Thanks for the help all.

We have a trolley system that works very well. Chula Vista to Downtown San Diego and even to Old Town. Then call for a car short ride to Zoo and Sea world. But the drive to Zoo and Seaworld are very easy and parking is good.

Thanks I appreciate the help. I am amazed at how friendly this community is since getting on. We pick up our sun seeker in 13 days and I have been counting it down for about two months and reading posts. Can't wait to enjoy weekends in it.

I recommend the SAN Diego Metro KOA which is in Chula Vista. We drove through the Chula Vista RV resort one time, looked more like a parking lot.

Pictures of Chula Vista and KOA

1st Picture is Chula Vista and 2nd KOA.

I guess they both look like parking lots.


You decide.
