Mission Bay RV Resort has announced that reservations are open for 147 new campsites that will be available for public use beginning Saturday.

The long-anticipated project makes way for improved coastal access and affordable camping on in the northeast corner of De Anza Cove, at 2727 De Anza Road, west of De Anza Cove Park.

“We’re proud of our work to clean up the De Anza Cove peninsula and make it safer and more accessible for San Diego residents, visitors and wildlife to enjoy for years to come,” said Jacob Gelfand, chief operating officer of Terra Vista Management, which also operates nearby Campland on the Bay and Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort in Newport Beach.

Estimated to cost over $8 million, the resort’s cleanup project kicked off its final phase in February, with the removal of 169 mobile homes from the property after abatement of asbestos and other hazards. Additional improvements include the cleanup of overgrown landscaping and the repair and enhancement of the coastal bike and pedestrian path, set to reopen later this summer. 

Newly renovated amenities include a pool and spa, a clubhouse with games and lounge area, and additional laundry facilities. All Mission Bay RV Resort guests have access to amenities and entertainment at nearby Campland on the Bay, accessible via the Mike Gotch Memorial Bridge path.

For guests who are new to camping or do not own an RV, the resort also has a directory of local rental companies that will deliver RVs, hooked up and ready for use.

Referred to as Mission Bay RV Resort – North, the new campsites are located near the Mission Bay Golf Course and are expected to expand coastal recreation access in the near-term as city leaders finalize long-term plans for Northeast Mission Bay
