Laguna Mountain is located in the southeastern portion of San Diego County in southern California.  The Laguna Mountain Recreation Area, located above 5,500 feet, is open year‑round recreational opportunities due to the area’s mild climate.  The recreation area includes Laguna Campground and Burnt Rancheria Campground, which together have 209 campsites and offer a variety of recreation activities.

Recreational activities in the Laguna Mountain Recreation Area include camping, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, driving along the Sunrise Scenic Byway, hang gliding, and horseback riding.  If it snows during the winter, residents of San Diego, Imperial Counties and Mexico flock to Laguna Mountain for the day.  The Pacific Crest Trail and Noble Canyon National Recreation Trail cross through Laguna Mountain Recreation Area.


Burnt Rancheria Campground was listed in the May 1997 issue of Sunset Magazine as one of the top 100 campgrounds in the West, while Laguna Campground was named in 2008 among the Top 100 Family Campgrounds in America.

Laguna Campground Water Update: Water main repairs have been completed and the system is scheduled to be energized tomorrow. Then the system is treated and flushed with the first water samples taken on Sunday or Monday. We submit 2 consecutive samples to the county for testing and approval before the water is ready for human consumption. Looks like next Friday the 9th for water if everything goes to plan.
Our sister campground at MM 23, Burnt Rancheria, has showers and facilities available for use.
Thanks again for your patience!
