Mustang Water Park can be accessed directly from the Lake Lopez campgrounds, offering visitors a unique outdoor recreational experience in the heart of the San Jacinto Mountains. The 470-acre reservoir has a Splashing Eagle swimming area, which is convenient for campers and has an open beach. Or rent a pontoon boat to spend the day enjoying a floating picnic or fishing for various types of local fish and livestock. Just a 20-minute drive north of Santa Barbara, Ocean Mesa Campground is located among the native oak trees of the Los Padres National Forest, with stunning views of the roaring Pacific Ocean.
When your team gets tired of El Capitan Beach or miles of picturesque hiking trails, dive into the heated pool overlooking the ocean, head to the playground, or rent one or five games of grass. A popular family vacation spot in Southern California since 1969, Campland is close to SeaWorld, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, the Gaslamp Quarter and other attractions in the area. The list of kid-friendly activities here is long and so varied that it's sure to please even the most demanding customers. From arcade games to beach volleyball courts and even a skate park, you can put an end to boredom.
By booking a spot at the Calico Ghost Town Campground, the whole family is transported to the height of an Old West mining town (and perhaps even to an old family vacation with the Brady tribe). This historic city, part of San Bernardino County's regional park system, is surrounded by the natural beauty of the desert and invites guests from around the world to experience the fascinating chronicles of life in the late 19th century. Kids love the ghost tour and will talk about that mystery cabin for a long time. Suitable for toddlers, teens, and adults with a youthful spirit, Malibu Creek State Park has it all: hiking, rock climbing, bird watching, fishing, and more.
Southern California is home to several amazing family camps that offer children exciting alternative activities and entertainment when they get tired of walking in the woods.
