Peaceful and family friendly campsite

Beautiful and peaceful place to camp around the lake. We were at the Westshore campsite, which seemed for me the best ( the two others are lone pines for RV and tents and Chambers for tents and cabins) Westshore has a dozen campsites with direct lake view (not allowed to swim in the lake though).…

Chambers Park Campground

Used this as our base camp to explore the local trails. It was amazing. Space #6 had the best view of the lake and plenty of shade.

About This Campground

About an hour's drive from San Diego, Lake Cuyamaca is a picture-book 110 acre lake that is proof positive that good things come in small packages. Situated at an elevation of 4600 feet in an Oak and Pine forest, it is surrounded on three sides by the 26,000 acre Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, which is 52% wilderness. Lake Cuyamaca is the perfect getaway for one day or up to ten nights. Few places in San Diego County offer the pristine views that greet your eyes wherever they may wander! Stocked with over 38,000 lbs. of trout annually, Lake Cuyamaca is the only San Diego lake that is able to stock trout all year long. Other species of fish include Florida bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, crappie, bluegill and sturgeon. There are no dump-stations at Lake Cuyamaca. The nearest dump-station is located about 3 miles away at Paso Picacho State Park Campround. No body contact with the water is allowed. Lake Cuyamaca is a drinking water source for San Diego.
