Escondido, California Campgrounds and RV Parks

Escondido RV parks and campgrounds are mostly to the north of town and extend along Interstate 15 and to the east, into the wilds of southern California. This part of the country is popular among folks who camp year-round, since it rarely snows and only drops below freezing once in awhile and only late at night, typically. Escondido is only 30 minutes from the coast and spots like Oceanside, Carlsbad, and LEGOLAND, and a mere twenty minutes from Torrey Pines State Beach and Natural Reserve.

Choosing an RV site in or around Escondido bears the benefit of being close to the Pacific Ocean as well as to the natural gems of the immediate area like Cleveland National Forest, Hellhole Canyon Preserve, and Black Mountain Open Space Park.

Closer to Escondido there are plenty of high quality opportunities to explore the outdoors. Find your way to the Daley Ranch, Blue Sky Ecological Reserve, or to Kit Carson Park. One of the local favorites is the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve just southwest of Escondido. Here there are miles of chaparral covered hills with well-maintained hike, bike, and horse trails running throughout. For some urban adventuring, try some of the spots near San Marcos, California.

Many who visit this area make a point to stop by the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, where you’ll think you’ve left Southern California and arrived on the African savannah. There are large and exotic animals from throughout Africa and Asia living here, and they are mostly free to wander as guests view these majestic beasts from the comfort and safety of the tour vehicle.
