Ocean Kamp, a proposed adventure-themed hotel and community built around an artificial surf lagoon in Oceanside, has been unanimously approved by the Oceanside Planning Commission for construction in the San Luis Rey River Valley.
The Union Tribune says the 92-acre project is on the site of a former drive-in theater and swap meet just off state Route 76 and Mission Avenue at Foussat Road.
Plans include a four-story hotel with 232 rooms, eight “villa” buildings with a total of 18 rooms, 16 “casitas” with a total of 20 rooms, and a park-like group of permanently parked Airstream trailers that constitute 30 rooms.
All the guest lodging will be centered on a 3.5-acre surf lagoon that will generate waves of varying sizes. When the wave machine is off, the lagoon will be available for swimming, stand-up paddle-boarding and other aquatic activities.
Also in the plans are 11 separate commercial, retail and office buildings, an 18,000-square-foot conference building, and up to 700 dwellings divided into areas of for-sale condominiums and rental apartments. Among other amenities are about 1.5 miles of trails for walking, running and biking.
The commission’s approval is final unless appealed to the Oceanside City Council.
