People in San Diego are lucky to have so many incredible outdoor activities to choose from whether you enjoy hitting the beach or heading to the mountains. People looking for things to do in San Diego this weekend that are feeling really outdoorsy should look into camping at Kumeyaay Lake Campground.
Located in Mission Trails Regional Park, Kumeyaay Lake Campground features fishing, fire pits, BBQ grills, and incredible hikes. While you’re camping you can even get started on the Five Peak Challenge which involves hiking to the peaks of all five mountains in Mission Trails Regional Park. At the top of each peak, take a picture by the sign and once you have all five you can submit them and get a certificate and a logo pin. Of course, if you’d rather just relax and enjoy the weather and being outside in one of the most pristine areas in San Diego, that’s fine too. Nothing brings friends closer together than spending some time camping, cooking, hiking, fishing, and enjoying the Great Outdoors. Another highlight of camping is having the chance to get away from the city lights and look up at the night sky when you can really see all of the stars without any light pollution. If you are wondering what to do in San Diego this weekend and want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, grab a tent and head for the wilderness.
Camping at Kumeyaay Lake Campground costs only $24 per night and the 46 campsites are available on a first come first serve basis so plan ahead and reserve your spot early, especially during the busy summer season. Of course, this is San Diego so there is great weather for camping all year long and you might even enjoy hiking more in the offseason when it cools down a little. The campsites do not have much shade so you will want to bring a canopy or beach umbrella to escape the sun during the day. There are a lot of cheap things to do in San Diego that are a blast, but not many give you as much bang for your buck as a weekend of camping.
Funseekers can purchase a FunGig that includes a night or two of camping with a knowledgeable camper. Funbassadors can reserve a spot, provide equipment, and make some extra money while enjoying a weekend of camping.
