Good Sam RV Travel Guide & Campground Directory

Sun, Sand, and Surf



The winter blues got you down? Then throw the the dog, the beach chairs, and stuff to barbeque, and get down to beautiful San Diego and Bernardo Shores RV Park.

Family owned and operated for 36 years, Bernardo Shores Adult Community is one of San Diego’s hidden treasures located on San Diego bay. Completely renovated in the late 90’s, their spacious sites can accommodate any size RV on the road today. All of their sites are back-in and feature full hook ups with 30 and 50 amp service with beautiful brick patios.

Meticulously manicured hedges between sites offer you that extra privacy to make your stay more enjoyable.Overlooking the South Bay Refuge, visitors can bird-watch from several vantage points, walk and/or ride bicycles along a bike path bordering a good portion of the south bay.
Bernardo Shores RV Park is approximately 5 blocks from the beach. Some visitors say they can hear the waves crashing on the beach at night. What an amazing way to fall asleep!

Outside the park, the city of San Diego is chalk full of Southern California sights and sounds.
If you feel like you jump through hoops, check out local Sea World Resort and watch as dolphins and other marine life perform amazing feats of acrobatics—like jumping through hoops! And don’t miss your chance to see Shamu, the docile killer whale. Word of advice…bring a raincoat! That show can get wet.

If you would rather keep dry, the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano is also nearby, and it is a must see. Named after the Italian saint St. Giovanni da Capistrano, the mission is a wondrous testament to the early pioneers and settlers of California. Walk through its halls and take a peek at the artifacts and history that surround this area. This mission is also famous for its congregation of Cliff Swallows that migrate here every year. Visit around March or April, and you will see hundreds of swallows stopping at the mission on their way down south.

If you are in the mood just to walk around, breath the salt air, and eat at great restaurants, then you definitely have to walk over to the Gaslamp district of San Diego. Delicious eateries are around every corner, and the beachy atmosphere of the area will enchant you. There’s also great boutiques and coastal shops here, all full of interesting collections and beautiful items.

If you are tired of the cold, the wet, the snow, or you just need some good ‘ole sunshine, make plans to visit San Diego and use Bernardo Shores RV Park as your home base for exploring the city.
