Burnt Rancheria campground is a seasonal campground open from mid May to mid October. This is a gem of a campground, very clean and well maintained. It is in a National Forest so as mentioned in an earlier post, roads are narrow, thankfully one way and negotiating your spot with a "big rig" can be tricky. Turns are tight in places and expect to "rub" some branches at the very least either on your roof or on the sides or both. They list some pull through sights though I didn't see any, perhaps for the camp hosts. There aren't any hook up sights what so ever as listed (again except for campground hosts) but water abounds with water spigots just about every where you look so there is no shortage of access to water. We stayed in space #46 which is right across from a camp host and right next to one of the many restrooms. I would stay in this space again as water is right next to it if you should run out as we did. The only draw back of staying next to one of the restrooms is they are lighted throughout the night, could be good for those that may need it but I'd rather a spot with less or no light at night. Camp hosts spaces are lighted throughout the night as well. All in all a wonderful place to stay with many attractions nearby. Just to mention a number I think are worth seeing. Julian CA is about 20 miles away and the San Diego Historical Rail Road Museum in Campo CA, that actually hosts two train rides/runs on both Saturday and Sunday is about 25 miles away. Either is plenty worth the drive to go to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A beautiful campground in the Cleveland National Forest east of San Diego. Located at about 5,000 feet, so usually above the coastal marine layer. Can get cold in the winter (with snow), but that's rare. Typical national forest campground. Sites well-spaced, lots of shade. Direct access from the campground to the Pacific Crest Trail so lots of hiking opportunities. Three camp hosts on site, so help/assistance available if needed. Although previous reviewers have indicated that this park is big rig friendly, I would take that with a dose of common sense. As with many national forest campgrounds, the roads are narrow in some places and overhead clearance for limbs is a challenge. In fact, in a motorhome of typical height, there are no interior roads you can navigate without collecting a few tree marks. The best big rig sites would be those near the entrance (14, 17, 18, 19) because you can back into those from the entrance and avoid the trees. We stayed in #3 - a great site, but getting out was a little more complicated. Again, a great location. We enjoyed ourselves. Just be careful of the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We roughed it here, nice area if you want to get off the beaten path, and get away from everyone! but if you have all the nice things like your toys, you may want to re-think staying here. Lots of shade, water may be an issue, it was hot during our 2 day stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall a very nice park. The accommodations are primitive, no electric, water or sewer. There is water available, but there is no way to hook a hose to the spigot to fill your coach. The "rangers" are basically camp hosts and were slightly stand off-ish. Not really unfriendly, just not very helpful. There are many miles of nice hiking trails easily accessible from the campground and all the sites are spacious. We would return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
