Simple, pretty, well maintained county park

Stayed in space 10, a partial hookup with a view of the lake. They have full and partial hook up spaces and "primitive" tent only sites.

Partial hook up had water in camp and an electrical box with 2 kinds of shore power and a 2- 110 outlets for $29.

Ranger was nice, bathroom was clean, neighbors…

I saw this site didn’t have any reviews so we took a drive down there since we’re so close. I was shocked at how beautiful it was there! We’re coming back for an overnighter for sure!!

Quiet & Satisfying

We found this park last minute because our original place had fire restrictions. We picked right! Park has a nice playground and a trail that has lots of shoot offs. We tent camped, which was a lot of fun! Hardly anyone at this campground. Very quiet. Bathrooms are well-kept, but you have to pay to…

Great campsite, easily accessible

I loved how accessible this campsite was, especially if you're coming from San Diego. Our site had electricity and water, a fire pit, and a picnic table. There were plenty of sites to go around. The rangers were helpful and the facilities were very well maintained. You can buy firewood from the…

Hike the PCT from Lake Morena

The campground at Lake Morena has around 80+ spots that range from hookups for RV to basic tent camping. There's a indoor entertainment room and multiple bathrooms. The campground is not located right on the lake but a 15min walk away. The cell service is roaming but was decent; around 500kb…

Great off-the-grid park

Lovely park, where you can truly check out. No cell service other then AT&T, no over the air TV, no over the air radio. Sirius works great. I would stay here again. Love it.

Cute campground close to city

Stayed in the cabins, had a large group of people, and we all fit comfortably. Built a fire at the ring just outside of the cabin. Went on hikes around the lake and into the nearby field. Watched the sunset and sunrise from here, incredible! This is an underrated campground and gives a real feel of…

Way down south!

Very well maintained. Bathroom clean. Lots of staff onsite. Very helpful. Had a water boil order but took the Brita so no problem. Was very empty due to heat wave and fires. Feel like if it was full, it would feel very crowded. Events for younger kids (movie night, etc). Lake level down. Very long…

Amazing campground

Lake Morena is an awesome place to stay. This was our first campsite during our PCT thru hike, approximately 20 miles from the Mexico border via the trail. They have a number of campsites and it didn't seem like they filled up too quickly. Other than thru hikers, there were only a handful of…
