Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home at some sites—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
Try out camping without having to rough-it! Or swing through for a safe place to spend the night in your van, or tent, while taking advantage of San Diego and all it has to offer! Within 30 miles or so, you can plan a visit to the Zoo, Museums, Sea World, Scripps Aquarium, Safari Park, the beaches, mountain lakes or deserts nearby! San Diego Canyon Creek is a small patch of woods, near a road, in a neighborhood. We are surrounded by rocky peaks, with a creek that most often runs year round! We have multiple species of song birds, owls, hawks, and other wildlife that live in this Riparian Habitat, with a chorus of frogs throughout the summer nights. It's a very short walk to the neighborhood park- equipped with several types of playground equipment and public creek access, or a five minute drive to a Crestridge Ecological Preserve containing multiple trails. If you'd like to hang out on the property, we offer a table and chairs with each campsite to lounge in while enjoying the fresh air and nature. There are also a couple of hammocks available. In addition, our SHARED amenities include an outdoor kitchen with a double sink with hot water, mini fridge, coffee maker, a two burner stove, a griddle, a toaster oven, blender, tea kettle, and a few plates, bowls, cups, and utensils. Also here to SHARE is a Propane fire pit and BBQ area. The bathroom now includes a flush toilet, sink and shower. We are continuously making improvements. Fun Fact: Harbison Canyon was named after John Stewart Harbison - aka the King of the Bee Keepers. He arrived with over one hundred colonies of bees in 1874 and within 7 years he became the world's largest honey producer! Today there are just a few bees in the area.

What an Absolute Jen!
What an absolutely lovely property, it’s so well laid out. The kitchen was adorable, we are doing an outdoor kitchen and I am definitely stealing some ideas. We loved this place so much and talked about how we would come back and then we met the host Laura. What a great story of the work she put into this, everything she went through and all the help she had along the way just really makes you appreciate this property so much more! You can see the love she has already put in and her ideas for future projects makes us want to keep checking back in to watch the progress.

It’s a BEAUTIFUL spot but so loud. Really loud cars race by throughout the day and evening. But the site is lovely and if you don’t mind loud cars occasionally coming by, you will enjoy this site.
