Campland Announces Free Camping Program for Underserved Youth and Families

Campland on the Bay®, San Diego’s beloved RV campground, in cooperation with the California Coastal Commission, is pleased to introduce a free camping program for underserved California youth and families to experience camping on Mission Bay. 

“As a conscientious steward of the leased tidelands, Campland is committed to facilitating coastal access in a variety of forms,” said Jacob Gelfand, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Terra Vista Management. “We look forward to creating more accessible and equitable opportunities for people to enjoy waterfront recreation on Mission Bay regardless of age, background, ethnicity, race, income level, or disability.”

A destination for family-friendly fun for more than 50 years, Campland is located on the shores of the nation’s largest aquatic park surrounded by miles of beaches and bike paths and offers a vast array of resort amenities. The year-round Free Camping Program is designed to further diversity, equity, and inclusion for underrepresented populations to experience camping and recreation in Mission Bay by offering free campsite rentals and camping gear, access to resort amenities and activities, free watercraft rentals, free vehicle parking, reimbursed transportation costs for certain participating organizations, and more. 

Campland is actively looking for additional organizations that attend to underserved or diverse youth and families, people with disabilities, or low-income individuals or families. To learn more about Campland’s Free Camping Program or to determine eligibility, please call (858) 581-4265 or visit
