Lake Morena Regional Park is a camping park located in East San Diego County. Because of its location southwest of the Laguna mountains, the park shows characteristics of desert, coastal, and mountain habitats. Lake Morena Reservoir lies in the middle of 3,250 acres of chaparral, oak woods, and grassland. There are wilderness cabins available for camping as well as full hook-up, partial hook-up and non hook-up sites. Additionally, a youth group area is 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 PCT. Camping, hiking, fishing, and boating may be enjoyed by all.
