Despite the crazy wind, we were able to hunker down in the lean to and ride it out. The next day was so clear we could see all the way to the ocean. The running water, gas burner stove top, and electricity make the packing light and everything easier.
Worth every penny
I can’t recommend this place enough!! Hiking, climbing, bonfires and the most incredible views. Steve has added beautiful touches - there is no place like his. We will definitely be back again and again and again. Thank you Steve!!
Highly recommend! Campsite was incredibly well thought out and absolutely beautiful! Definitely need 4WD to make it up the road. Steve is an awesome host & easy to communicate with. Already counting down the days until we can go back!
A truly magical experience!
This was finally checked off of my saved list—my partner and I rented a 4x4 to get up there since our 2WD car wouldn't have made it in one piece. It was only a short drive from downtown San Diego and was super easy to navigate.
Once we arrived the experience was TRULY MAGICAL. We had such an awesome experience exploring the property, birdwatching, hiking and some light climbing. Don't forget to check out the cave!
The facilities were beyond expectations and we had a seamless experience. Steve was super accommodating and was great at communicating—he even gave us a small tour of the property!
The sunsets and sunrises here were something out of a dream, we wish we could wake up every morning here.
We will definitely be coming back soon!
My group had the best time exploring Whiteside Mountain. The sunrises, sunsets, beautiful rocky rolling hills…it was idyllic. I could go on forever about how peaceful and pretty this spot is - but I think people should book it and see for themselves. Would 10/10 recommend.
I am a regular at Whiteside, but no matter how many times I come here, I am always taken aback by the serenity of the mountain top campsite and its beautiful views. It's definitely one of my "Happy Places."
