This Park is absolutely awsome if you are equipped to dry camp, and contrary to a previous comment, you would be hard pressed to find a less expensive spot in San Diego, or elsewhere for that matter, (obviously that person has not stayed at many MWR facilities). The location here is fantastic and there is a small beach on the other side of the building, if you have your own kayak or paddleboard, or you can rent them at the office. Across Harbor Blvd is Liberty Station with everything you might need for your stay, restaurants, Von's Market, Ace Hardware, even a 9 hole Golf Course. The proximity to downtown San Diego, (4.5 miles), I rode my bike to the Convention Center, and if you're into cycling, you could continue south and loop San Diego Bay, going through National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, go up the Strand and take the Ferry from Coronado to their landing right next to the USS Midway and then back to the Park, (about 35/40 miles). Balboa Park is only 3.5 miles and is another great place to cycle around or spend the day exploring all it has to offer. All in all this location has much to offer and any complaints to the contrary are people being petty. The staff is great and helpful. Hope this helps, safe travels.
