La Jolla Indian Campground

The La Jolla Indian Reservation consists of nearly 10,000 acres located at the base of Palomar Mountain in Northern San Diego County, California. Most of the land is undisturbed wilderness and is covered with many native plants and trees such as sage, chia, berries and many oak trees for making wiiwish (acorn pudding). There is also game such as deer and rabbit. These plants and game make up a small portion of our traditional food, all of which are still consumed by tribal members today.

La Jolla Indian Campground is the only campground in San Diego with river access and river tubing. It’s beautifully located just 40 minutes east of Escondido in Pauma Valley. There are tent camping and RV camping sites. Visit us and get out of the crowds.

Great tent camping

Stayed three nights and the site was great and the place was clean. The kids found many things in the river, such as crawdads, fish and frogs. The place also had dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies and many birds. Will definitely go back.

Perfect family getaway

The campgrounds were very organized and clean. Our spot was right next to the water and the kids had a blast playing. We met other families and had a quick two day stay. Looking forward to coming back for some tubing.

Such a great time

One of my favorite places in San Diego. I have been camping there for 20+ years. I enjoyed relaxing with a book and some cold drinks. It was just what I needed and I can’t wait to go back. I love La Jolla campground!
