Lake Morena County Park is a camping park located in East San Diego County. Due to its location southwest of the Laguna Mountains, the park has characteristics of desert, coastal and mountain habitats. Lake Morena Reservoir shines blue in the middle of 3,250 acres of chaparral, oak woods and grassland. Grab your gear, and get away from it all! This place is a haven for hiking, fishing and boating.

Don’t forget the s’mores! There are wilderness cabins available for camping, as well as full hook-up, partial hook-up and non hook-up sites. A youth group area is also available to reserve. A limited number of tent sites are available a short distance from the famous Pacific Crest Trail, with priority given to hikers of the Pacific Crest Trail.

NOTICE: Due to the low water levels at Lake Morena County Park, the boat ramp will be closed to launch personal watercraft until further notice. Fishing float tubes (users must wear waders), canoes and kayaks are allowed, but swimming and direct body-water contact are not allowed as this is a drinking-water reservoir. Motorized boats can be rented at the lake's marina for daily fishing and water activities. For further information, call the park at (619) 579-4101.

The boat dock is subject to closure during inclement weather which includes high winds, electrical storms, rain and snow storms. Call ahead if you plan to use watercraft or rent a boat.
