Set below Spooner’s Mesa – roughly a mile south of the Tijuana River and east of the Pacific Ocean – this unique 79-acre campground offers breathtaking views of the valley, with connections to over 20 miles of trails enjoyed by hikers, bikers and equestrians. It contains a nature education center, 51 primitive campsites and is also the first County campground to offer yurts – covered camping spaces with doors, windows, bed frames and room for six to 10 people. It also features an amphitheater, nature play and a volunteer pad for 24-hour maintenance and support. This campground is the latest addition to an already robust 1,800-acre park property – which features 22 and a half miles of trails, a bird and butterfly garden, a 200-plot community garden and five ballfields.
Tijuana River Valley is one of the only remaining areas in San Diego County with connected beach, dune, salt marsh, riparian and upland ecosystems. The area contains a number of historic sites and viewpoints – providing cultural, aesthetic and recreational value. The valley is rich in diverse natural resources and is home to dozens of sensitive species, along with more than 340 bird species as part of the Pacific Flyway.
