As most of you know by now, we must close the RV Resort on February 1, 2019. This is very painful for news for us to deliver, as our staff has given their hearts and souls to Chula Vista RV Resort for many years. We have become friends with so many of you, and learned to look forward to your next visit.
But, there is still time to enjoy our beautiful Resort, and we will stay resolute until the end with our many happy parties and events. Read on, as October is an exciting month to visit, and the holidays are right around the corner. Make your reservations soon for that one last visit.
GREAT NEWS. Sunland RV Resorts, with 4 parks in the San Diego area alone, have agreed to help all of our guests in re-booking reservations to visit San Diego County after February 1st. They created a special link if you'd like to reserve on line, or you may call them direct:

The Gossip Board
During our Labor Day concert, we received a very generous gift. Jennifer Trembley shared her talent of fire dancing. It’s something she loves to share along her journey of cruising around the world. Jennifer and Harry Trembly have been marina guests for about a month. Sailing the coast of Mexico is next on their sailing journey. They’re from the San Francisco Bay area where Jen started spinning fire in 2003. In the beginning, she taught herself by watching YouTube videos, but as she became more experienced she decided to take formal lessons from a teacher in San Francisco. Later she came in contact with a performing group and they would perform around the Bay area, fire art festivals, and later at Burning Man (where it all began for her).
When performing, her husband Harry stands by with a fire retardant blanket and keeps watch to make sure her clothing doesn’t catch fire. The fire creates its own perimeter so people rarely walk into its path; however sometimes she uses LED Poi’s instead of fire. Jen's performances are truly mesmerizing to watch!
