Going during the week mid summer was fantastic! No one around!
We love this quick getaway for its easy access, large sites, and miles and miles of awesome trails for hiking or biking. The water levels on the ponds will vary at different times of the year, but the meadow just outside of the campground is a favorite for our kids - they ride their bikes over and sit on the rocks talking the night away.
Spectacular sunsets and mind-boggling starry skies await.
For the brave, watch the local weather report and plan a camping trip for the night before a good snowstorm, then wake up to a winter wonderland right in San Diego!
Nitpicks: The bathrooms are not very nice here and there is no dump/washout for RVs or campers.
We love this place so much that we came here two weekends in a row. We actually shot a bit of video here because it was so beautiful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAYMnTTNoIY
This place is just magical! I can't believe that this is so close to San Diego. It's a combination of meadow and forest and is currently bright green from all of the rain. The campsites are spread out pretty well, so you don't feel like you're right next to other campers. Definitely will be back here!
Great hiking, check out Alpine and Pine Valley.
This is one of those rare places in Southern California where you can see deciduous trees with leave that change color in the fall!
My favorite campground in the San Diego area. Just a short drive off the 8 only a stop or two past the usual roads to Julian and Lake Cuyamaca. Open meadows, beautiful forests, plenty of hikes, and some lakes and gorgeous views all around. A wonderful place. We came up here Easter weekend and had no problem finding a 2 person walk-in space on Saturday and had a larger space on the next day. A general store, cabin restaurant, and an outdoor store nearby if you need any comforts. Wonderful area and campground.
