Campland on the Bay, San Diego

Campland on the Bay, San Diego

Just arrived few hrs. ago. Not the greatest, but everywhere in SoCal especially the beach cities is crowded. But not a bad camp, private gated & lots of security to keep the rif-raf out of the private beaches. Plenty to do for our grandkids and many choices of campsites, depending on whether you want beachfront, waterview, near the performers stage/park, cantina, market, arcade, kids playground, or even totally paved to minimize dirt & beach sand incursion. It's Halloween weekend so lots of stuff for little kids to do. Grandson having a blast.

Great pictures! Looks like a nice spot for "elite campers" like yourself (no riff-raff).

Great location and surrounding communities. Plenty to do for everyone!

We stayed there in the mid-90's and watched a Northeastern blizzard on the neighbor's TV. [ ] Great hardware store located a bit west of you in downtown Pacific Beach.

https://www.acesandiego.com/

We needed plumbing parts and a large tap, to fix a freeze-up due to a hasty winterization coming west, and that store had everything, plus opened early on a Sunday morning. Tore apart the bed to get to the water heater, bought parts and fixed everything my noon. Phew!

There used to be an Orange Julius near I-5 just east of you, but it may be gone.

Have a great time.

Peter

If you go into town to do the tourist thing one of my favorite breakfast places is Grand Central Cafe. It’s close to the Midway. So many great places in that town.

TXNEWBIE - Was not long enough, kiddos enjoyed our stay, we plan to come back soon.

ROWIEBOWIE - You must have me confused with someone else, I am still Wannabe RV'er. It will be a few more years before I graduate from that level to Elite status

OTRA15 - We walked by that ACE. Of course, I can not just walk by an ACE, I went in and browsed around, despite wife's protest but I am training grandson to like hardware stores instead of outlet stores that wife & daughter always want to visit

SLIMPOCKETS - did not have time to venture too far from camp, will try to do so on next visit. There was lots to do in camp, we didn't even get to do everything with limited time. Next visit will be longer.

If you did not buy anything, the HSSA may have to revise your status back down to Probationary . . .

[ HSAA -- Hardware Store Shoppers Anonymous ]

To maintain your status as an Active Shopper, you must go beyond browsing and buy something ASAP. Paper towels, TP, coffee filters, etc. will suffice, as long as the purchase occurs in a bona fide hardware store.



Have a great trip!

Peter


PS -- Oh, and the purchase must involve higher unit costs than would be available at Costco or Amazon!

OTRA15 - Actually, I did end up purchasing a couple of items, so hopefully my HSSA stats stays current. I would've looked longer if it weren't for the wife getting impatient. But grandson was having a blast in ACE. I did not mention purchasing coz the items were not rv related. One was a Rubbermaid sink dish strainer for the house (which is my favorite but no longer exists in big box depth stores) and a 2nd Raiders floor mat (the 1st one I also found in ACE in Boulder City, NV). Ironically, the Raiders floor mats were cheaper in ACE than the NFL store. Go figure.

Your HSSA Active Shopper status has been restored!



How about a new thread about great hardware stores around the country? This Favorite Old Country Store thread is close:

Are you guys telling me that my DW and I are not the only ones that browse through hardware stores, country stores, and big box home improvement stores just for the fun of it? She calls it a "typical cheap date"...

RMKRUM - Any village, town, or city that we visit for at least 2 days means a trip to local ACE or family hardware store and/or country store. Beware . . . you are not alone

Rich, you should see the great "Christmas presents" I find for her at the hardware store -- one year it was a brand new high-quality rubber hose!

Small flashlight stocking-stuffers for the entire family, with batteries pre-loaded!



PS -- That FOCS thread linked recently is active again. Let the good times roll.
