One of our favorite campgrounds in Southern California is at Table Mountain in the Angeles National Forest. We had timed our visit to coincide with ARRL Field Day and had been able to snag one of our favorite spots, Site #10. Table Mountain Campground offers well-separated sites, particularly at the top and bottom of the campground, and clean and tidy vault toilets. Firewood is available for purchase on site. Xaria lost absolutely no time getting down in the dirt on our arrival.
Our first camping trip with Xaria was to Cuyamaca Rancho State Park - she was just eleven weeks old. Only thirty miles from our home in San Diego it offers great camping and hiking through oaks, pines and lovely meadows with creeks. Paso Picacho sits at an elevation of 5,000 feet in the shadow of Stonewall Peak. Paso Picacho campground has 85 campsites; we were in Site #11.
