Rancho Cuyamaca State Park

Visit Rancho Cuyamaca State Park -

The beautiful park offers camping and hiking in an oak woodland forest, with a sprinkling of pines and lovely meadows with creeks.
There are over 100 miles of trails which accommodate hikers, bikers, and equestrians.

At Cuyamaca look for the waterfalls near Green Valley Campground, headwaters to the Sweetwater River. There are also hidden meadows near Granite Springs or Milk Ranch Road. And great views from the top of Cuyamaca Peak or Stonewall Peak.

Park Wildlife:
The most commonly seen wildlife includes mule deer, gray squirrels, raccoons and striped skunks. Predators such as gray foxes, coyotes, bobcats and mountain lions are also present.

Park Campgrounds:
The two family camps, Paso Picacho and Green Valley, are open and on the reservation system spring through fall. Call for availability during the remainder of the year.
