“Scenic area, don't believe the online fishing report.”

Overall Rating

This is a privately run campground on the shores of Lake Cuyamaca (San Diego County) 9 miles south of Julian, CA on highway 79. There are 2 campgrounds that include water and electricity, but no sewer. We stayed at Chambers in site 22. This site has an ideal view of the lake. Boat rentals (fishing and pontoon) are available at the tackle shop.

Daily fishing fees are $8 and a CA fishing license is required. The problem is...lousy fishing. Did not catch a thing in 4 days. This time of year the water is murky, so maybe all those fishes can't see my scrumptious bait, wait maybe there are no fish in the lake. 😛

Viejas Indian casino is about 30 minutes away if you like that sort of thing.

Downside was that we had 3 days of wind and there is no dump station. There is a dump station at the state park a few miles south of this campground, fee to dump was $8. Also the campground is next to the highway, so there is some highway noise ( not a lot, but it is there)

I would camp here again for relaxation, but only for a couple of days.
