Overall Rating

Green Valley Campground is one of two family campgrounds in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park (the other is Paso Picacho). Green Valley is situated among oak and pine forest at an elevation of 4,000 feet. A lovely creek which runs through the campground.

Green Valley has 81 campsites with bathrooms and coin-operated showers. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring and there are water faucets throughout the campground. The sites are either situated far enough apart and/or with the varied terrain, makes them feel private. Most of all of the sites have trees--much needed shade as a respite from the heat.

There is a day use area, with cascades and pools, that is packed during the summer. Lots of hiking opportunities on the 100+ miles of trails, which I did not take advantage of as I travel with my dog (dogs are not allowed on trails).

Be prepared, absolutely no cell coverage (AT&T).

I would definitely camp here again--it's a beautiful area just an hour away from San Diego.
