“Nice beach, but lacks amenities”
Pros : beach! Cons : - no green...too much asphalt - no sewer or grey water drain - you need to pay an extra 20$ each time a guy comes to empty your tanks OR you need to drive somewhere (close though) to empty - no laundry - no wifi - no vehicle access after 8pm! So basically, you go for dinner in San Diego and can't come back to your place. Park attendant said folks just take Uber : wasn't happy about that - for 50$/night, i would have expected the above amenities at a minimum.

“Awesome location, must stay”
Terrific beachfront location. Be sure to check the map when making your reservation. We found the beachfront sites as superior to the inner rows. No showers.
“Great location but.....”
The location is awesome, We rode kayaks in the marina, boogie boards, and surf fishing. As for the RV parking area: asphalt, no tables, just enough room for 30 ft class C with slide open on one side and awning on the other. Cramped quarters and really narrow drive ways. Unless you have one of the really nice premium parking spot next to the sand which are definitely worth the extra price IMHO, you wont be seeing the ocean from your site. Electrical at my site had 20, 30 and 50 amp receptacles for power and water. No wi-fi but that's just another reason to go out and play. They only allow pets in the paved area on 6 ft. leash. Dog poop all around the edges of the rv park from careless owners. It sure wood be nice if people could at least walk there dogs on the bay side trail. If you don't mind very close quarters nice place but a little too claustrophobic for my likings.
I really enjoyed this place God bless the owners of this place
I'm a RV rookie and I'm thankful that I took it here for my first RV camping. A lot of priceless moment for me.
We just spent two weeks at Silver Strand. Things are generally well-kept, and the beach proximity is stunning. They have constructed a winter berm of sand to protect the campground (which is nothing more than an asphalt slab with water and electric hook-ups), and this impedes the view. Dogs are allowed only in the campground, but nowhere on the beach. But in 15-20 minutes, you can have your pooch at the Coronado off-leash dog beach, which is nice. I'm just not sure I like camping on asphalt.
“Awesome location beautiful beach”
Well run very clean right on the beach what more do you want
The Silverstrand is a asphalt parking lot so it is close quarters, although this year (2013) they have widen the spaces to accommodate slides. They also added H20 & 50amp hook ups to each site and installed a dump station. If you are lucky and can reserve a beach front site through Reserveamerica.com @ $65.00 per night I feel it is worth is as it is the only campground in south of Orange County you are right on the beach. Non beach fronts run about $50.00 per night. You can get a 41' on the beach front or freeway sides only 35' max on the inner rows, although there are a half dozen sites on the inner rows with light post which reduces the length so double check. Happy and safe travels to all.
