Guajome is a very pleasant regional park with lakes, riparian vegetation, and compacted dirt walking trails all around. It's very popular and difficult to get a spot any weekend without reservations far in advance. Even though it's 9+ miles from the beach, it's much less expensive than the coastal campgrounds. Larger rigs will want to stick to the lower sites. With tall trees nearby don't count on every site getting a satellite signal. Our 50 amp service worked fine in two different sites. There's a sand volleyball court and a new but odd pickleball court - the concrete pad only goes as far as the outside lines, so you are in sand when you go beyond to serve, etc; therefore it's good for practice only unless they expand it. My favorite aspect of the park is accessibility to the San Luis Rey River Trail that goes ~9 miles to beach (see tips section). The only negatives besides difficulty to get sites on weekends & too few sites for larger rigs, are the explosion noises from nearby Camp Pendleton, and Highway 76 which is frequently gridlocked. We also got bitten up by mosquitos during an evening out at the picnic table. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Dirt paths lead under Hwy 76 to the Santa Fe Rd trailhead of the paved San Luis Rey River Trail that runs to the beach in Oceanside in about 9.5 miles from your site. After getting to the coast there are lots of options (as described in enCYCLEpedia Southern California). The ocean breeze typically makes the return trip easier. You can also cycle to the San Luis Rey Mission, halfway down. Also, an active welcoming pickleball group is at nearby Melba Bishop Park.

Very nice park. It got a 7 because no Sewer or Wi-Fi. Good website that shows site sizes so there are a few for big rigs as we have a 45ft 5th wheel. Convenient to North San Diego. Will definitely stay again. Need to book ahead as was fully booked well in advance of the Dec. and Jan. period for the larger sites. We camped at Guajome County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this place; clean, nice facilities, good walk paths & forest setting. (Easy commute to visit grandkids in San Marcos!) BTW, the actual city is Vista -- it's inland from and close to Oceanside, the park is surrounded by the city of Vista. RESERVATIONS are needed nearly year-round; go to San Diego county parks website -- they are nice folks, but hard to get into weekends between April and November, unless you plan at least 2 months in advance! We camped at Guajome County Park in a Fifth Wheel.
