Rest in nature in the San Diego back country. Sleep under the most beautiful night sky - the stars are amazing up here after watching the sunset behind the mountains. Take a walk along the oak trees, hike to the top of Mount Oliver. Read your favorite book, practice yoga, meditate. Enjoy s'mores in our community fire pit. Hug a tree, enjoy the breeze and keep an eye out for lots of birds, wild turkeys, deer, wild bunnies. Take your time and unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy the views, listen for the neighbors cows mooing. Find your special place to rest and relax on our 22 acre property. We are located in Descanso, CA only 34 miles from downtown San Diego. We are conveniently located not far off the I8 Freeway and right in the middle of town. There is a great Restaurant "The Descanso Junction" located only .2 miles away open for Breakfast lunch and dinner. There are two convince stores within .4 miles (one has gas) and both are a great place to get snack for your adventures. Want to go fishing? Lake Cyamaca is only 10 miles away. Want to get some Apple Pie, go wine tasting or visit a gold mine? The town of Julian is only 16 miles away. Mount Laguna is only 10 miles away and is located in the Cleveland National Forest which is full of trails and beautiful views. We also have hiking available near by - Descanso Falls 4 miles away and Three Sisters Falls Trail 10 miles away. Connie and Jessika are the Camp Hosts for Camp Oliver. We take care of all things camp. We love Camp Oliver and are dedicated to keeping it thriving for years to come. We also run a small boutique farm on site and currently have 2 Pot Belly pigs and 3 Donkeys. We love to compost and create amazing worm dirt that we hope to use soon in the garden we are planning. We would love to grow our own veggies and have them as offerings to our guests and summer camp kiddos. Camp Oliver offers our cabins and tent camping. We have several cabins for rent and allow several tent sites options. Your rental will be exclusive for you, but you will be sharing the beautiful 22 acre land with others. If you are interested in booking our entire facility exclusively for a large group please reach out to us directly at CampOliverRocks.com. We are located off the road and are on mountains terrain. There are flat areas we have found to set up tents, but bring your hiking shoes for walking around camp. We are filled with both oak trees, pine trees and natural landscapes and beautiful rocks. We do have offer a shower and bathroom facility for our cabins and most of our tent sites. We have a community fire pit. We have hiking trails on site. Our cabins have bunk beds (you will need to bring your own linens or a pillow and sleeping bag does the trick), electricity to charge your phones. Please note: We do not offer wi-fi and some cell phone carriers do not provide service up here. You can bring a cooler into the cabin, but all cooked food will need to be cooked on a grill provided by the fire pit. No cooking/or fire is allowed out side of the pit area. Please bring flashlights and headlamps...it gets dark up here with out the city lights. We are so excited to share Camp with you and are looking forward to your stay! We have been closed since Covid hit & are just reopening. We have traditionally hosted a Summer Camp for Children & rent our facility during the year to help send kids to camp! We were founded in 1949 by the Sister of Social Service. Camp Oliver is a 501C3.

Tent 3 - In the Trees
This was a great place to camp for the night. Not far out of San Diego so was very convenient to get there. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating. The property isn’t super remote so this is a great option for those wanting a safe and easy camping experience.
