    I need information for a Picnic day in October 27 only. The price is for car or for people. Thank you.

    I’m interested finding out the availability and cost of the Youth Campground at Lake Morena. I would like to make a reservation for Friday night, April; 26 – Saturday afternoon, April 27. I’m not seeing an option for making that reservation for the Youth Camp on the website.

    • Hi Clint,

      From our Lake Morena County Park campground page (this page), click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button and you will be routed to San Diego County Parks website. From there, choose ‘Lake Morena’, the date you want to arrive, # of nights, and then click ‘Check Availability’. All of the available sites will show up for the date you select.. The Youth Group campsite is the last one listed (if it is available). I experimented with a random date (Feb 18 / 1 night) and it showed up as available. I also inserted your date and it did not show as available so it is reserved for April 26-27.
