Great Campground. Very peaceful by the river, the Cons... It's a little dusty and the bathrooms and showers need an update. Pros... The campground staff was great the Zipline is a must! It's well worth the money to camp here.

This place is not the greatest but is not the worse either. It gets pretty pack, on a long weekend I would advice you to get there either Thursday or Friday in the morning to get a good spot. If you have little kids the river is not too deep so is pretty safe for the little ones, one thing...

We had a terrific night here, Sight #9, but 7-13 are all great, 11-13 I think the biggest, have grills, the rope swing is by #13, so that will be heavy traffic, our #9 had plenty of floaters that passed us by. Water and Power, no wifi, no at&T, but verizon worked well, no cable... The RV section had tenters...

This is a great campsite but can get pretty crowded. First come first spot so be sure to get there early to get one of the better spots. Has bathrooms facilities on site which is always a bonus when you have to go. Wish the creek was flowing better but it's California and it's a drought. I would def recommend...

The family and I had a great time at the La Jolla Indian Campground. The staff was very helpful and the scenery was amazing. Really enjoyed tubing down the San Luis Rey River. One of the only places where you can do that. Can't wait until they open the Zipline in August!

Nestled in the beautiful picturesque mountains of San Diego is a quaint campground that is beyond peaceful and beautiful. The mountains house a calm breeze that reaches into the bottom of the valleys and sweeps around the tops of the hills. The trees are large and green and the water seems to flow year round. In the midst of this...
