Overall Experience 

February 2014

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.
