Lovers of the Great Outdoors can find plenty of amazing things to do in San Diego, and thanks to the great weather, camping is a year-round option. Of course, finding the best campsites isn’t always easy, so it helps to have a knowledgeable guide to show you where to pitch your tent and which hikes are the most rewarding. Luckily, there’s a FunGig that pairs you with an experienced camper who can guide you on a hike to some natural hot springs where you can relax in the warm waters.
Marisa’s guided camping and hiking trip allows Funseekers get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and camp in the mountains in Apple Valley where they can hike to some hidden hot springs. At the end of the mile long hike there are several pools with water temperatures ranging from 95 degrees to nearly 110 degrees, so you can try multiple pools to find just the right temperature for ultimate relaxation. By discovering these hidden hot springs, you are getting access to one of the best things to do in San Diego that many long-time locals don’t even know about. If you choose to cool off, there is also a freshwater stream for swimming or taking a quick dip. Before heading back to the campsite, you can have a picnic near the springs in a grassy field with ample shade should you need to escape the sun for a bit.
A FunGig including a guided camping trip with Marisa costs $120 per day and gives you the insight and assistance of a seasoned camper who will guide the hikes and help you set up camp, cook, and build fires. By helping set up the campsite and doing the cooking, Marisa allows you to have more time enjoying the natural beauty of the area rather than worrying about getting everything ready. The trip is dog-friendly so you don’t need to worry about leaving your four-legged friends behind. Camping in the mountains nearby is one of the top San Diego things to do any time of the year and when you’re in the company of a knowledgeable guide like Marisa, it’s even better. If you choose to extend your stay more than one day, or to have a party bigger than two people, you can arrange to pay extra by talking to Marisa about your specific needs.
