Live Well San Diego
Let's Get Outdoors!!

There are over 120 campgrounds within an hour of San Diego.

San Diego County Parks operates nine campgrounds from the coast to the desert and valleys to the mountains and offers an on-line and easy-to-use camping reservation system. Click here to make an online reservation.

Our campgrounds offer tent sites, partial hook-up sites, full hook-up sites and cabins. Running water is available, and showers can be found at our most popular camping destinations. Most of our campgrounds are open year-round with trails, group areas and planned activities that cater to all ages and interests.

If you're into glamping -- or camping with upgraded amenities like air conditioning, power outlets and sturdy wooden bed frames -- you can reserve a cabin at six of those campgrounds: Agua Caliente, Dos Picos, Guajome, Lake Morena, Potrero and William Heise.

Lake Morena Regional Park is a camping and fishing park located in East County San Diego. Because of its location southwest of the Laguna Mountains, the park represents desert, coastal, and mountain habitats – and all for the wildlife that call these environments home. Lake Morena is a popular vacation/staycation spot because it connects to the well-known Pacific Crest Trail, and because the lake is regularly stocked with freshwater fish.

Not only do we have some of the best county parks in the nation but you can find State and Federal campgrounds from the beach to the mountains.


ABC10, and sister station Azteca San Diego 15, are proud to partner with the County of San Diego on the Live Well San Diego initiative.

Live Well San Diego is an initiative of the County of San Diego to improve health and wellness for all residents. It represents a shared vision that can only be accomplished through collaboration across partners from every sector. This vision calls on every resident to take action to improve their own health, safety and well-being, as well as that of their families and neighbors.

There are three parts to Living Well:

  1. Building Better Health calls for improving the health of all residents and supporting healthy choices
  2. Living Safely calls for ensuring residents are protected from crime and abuse, neighborhoods are safe and communities are resilient to disasters and emergencies
  3. Thriving, currently under development, calls for promoting a region in which residents can enjoy the highest quality of life

Live Well San Diego involves everyone. Only through a collective effort—in which all of us work together toward a shared purpose—can meaningful change be achieved in a region as large and diverse as San Diego County.

Recognized Live Well Partners include health care providers, community and faith-based organizations, businesses, school districts and other jurisdictions, including cities, tribal governments and military or veterans organizations.

Local Action, County-Wide Impact.

Live Well San Diego needs leadership from residents to identify priority needs and make long term change.  Organizational leaders and community members gather in the County's regions to plan community improvements and address health and safety needs.  These teams serve as a central point for action at the local level.
