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.
