Park Map

Potrero Regional Park, 45 miles east of San Diego, is a broad valley dotted by coastal live oaks. Its grassy meadow and rocky hillsides provide quiet solitude for hikers and campers year round. Picnickers also enjoy the shade of hundred-year old oak trees.

The Park offers two wilderness cabins, RV, tent, and group camping with 37 campsites available. Groups, including corporate campouts, can use developed and primitive sites, and are welcome to reserve a picnic area. Hot showers are available for campers staying in the cabins, at one of the RV sites, which have electrical hook-ups and water, or at one of the tent sites.

Visitors can enjoy the ball field, an enclosed pavilion, playgrounds, and fitness and hiking trails. The nearby town of Potrero offers a general store, cafe, post office, and library. The railroad museum and century-old historic stone store in Campo make for an interesting side trip, and the colorful Mexican community of Tecate is only minutes away.
