There is also an excellent 10 mile bike only path from just outside the park into the Oceanside beachfront. At the beachfront, The trail merges with the oceanfront road leading to many shops and restaurants.

    The park is close to other historical points of interest such as the Rancho Guajome Adobe, designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1970 and the San Luis Rey Mission, one of the twenty-one California missions, which was founded in 1798.

    There is a bicycle trailhead just outside of the park that extends through nearby Oceanside, all the way to the coast. The city of Oceanside itself offers beaches, a pier and harbor, shopping, and restaurants.  Black's Beach is a 45 minute drive down the I-5.

    Laguna Mountains: Horse Heaven Campground


    Description

    Contrary to its name, Horse Heaven Group Campground has no equestrian sites. Instead, this tent-only facility can accommodate group gatherings. It provides a great mountain getaway for city dwellers to relax and enjoy cool summer temperatures, hiking and other outdoor recreation, just one hour east of San Diego.

    Facilities

    This site offers three areas for group gatherings: Lupine Loop can accommodate 40 people and 10 vehicles; The facility is equipped with vault toilets and drinking water. A general store is located 2.3 miles away at Mt. Laguna and Pine Valley.

    Natural Features

    The campground sits at an elevation of 6,000 ft. in the Laguna Mountains. It is forested with pines and oaks that provide plenty of shade, in addition to a meadow. The area is home to many species of birds, as well as the endangered Laguna Skipper butterfly. Little Laguna lake is located just a short distance from the campground and is an excellent hiking destination for photographers and visitors looking to explore the area. 

    Recreation

    The Laguna Mountain Recreation Area is known for great horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking trails. Visitors can get their boots dusty on the Laguna Meadow Trail system or access a segment of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from California to the State of Washington. Wildflowers are usually abundant in April and May on the Big Laguna Trail, which takes visitors past Big Laguna Lake. In wet years there is water in Big Laguna Lake by December or January and ducks and other birds can be found. The trail presents a number of options to the user. A return to the trailhead parking can be made by cutting through the Laguna Campground or by taking the Pacific Crest Trail north. Families can learn about the area's flora and fauna by attending educational programs at the facility's amphitheater. Or for history buffs, the El Prado Cabin located at nearby El Prado Campground, is the first ranger cabin built in the Cleveland National Forest in 1911. The San Diego State University Observatory also sponsors "Star Parties" for campers most Saturday evenings during the summer (schedule can be obtained at the nearby visitor center or by calling 619-473-8547).

    SHADY COVE-PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER CAMPOUT

    August 9-11, 2024

    Shady Cove Group Campground in the

    San Bernardino National Forest near Running Springs.

    Once again, the Perseids meteor shower returns to illuminate the night sky with a spectacular display for your viewing pleasure. We have secured 2 group sites at Shady Cove campground high up in the San Bernardino National Forest for this event. The campground is easily accessible, just off a paved road with stunning vistas of the surrounding area. It has forested tent sites and is situated in at an elevation of about 6,000 feet. Amenities include drinking water, picnic tables, vault restrooms, grills, trash containers, group fire ring and plenty of tent space. Plan on getting here during daylight hours for best viewing of the beautiful scenery along the way, Due to parking and space limitations, there is no room for RVs in the parking areas.

    The Perseid meteor shower is one of the best shooting star displays of the year, caused by the comet Swift-Tuttle discovered in 1862. Watching pieces of comet debris burn up in a bright burst of light, streaking a vivid path across the sky traveling at 37 miles per second is an amazing site! Although the moon will be 50% illuminated at the time of the Perseids' peak, it will set around midnight, so there will be dark skies until dawn — perfect for meteor hunting! On average, you can expect to see up to 100 meteors per hour during the Perseid's peak.


    For some real adventure during the day, take the short drive from our campsite to the Keller Peak Fire Lookout. You can also hike to the lookout but it’s a steep climb considering it’s perched on the edge of the mountain at 7,882 ft. It’s an active look out station with trained observers who are happy to explain the use of the Osborne, a device used to locate points within the forest when smoke is spotted. The views are awe inspiring! On clear days you can see the ocean, Catalina Island and the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range to the northwest. You can view two memorial plaques at Keller Peak lookout. The first designates the 1926-built tower as a historic landmark. The second, located 200 yards (175 m) to the west, marks the spot where a B-26 bomber crashed on December 30, 1941. Some of the wreckage is still visible.


    Hiking, biking and birding are popular activities in the area and many trails begin at or near the campground. There are lots of interesting boulder formations to climb around and photograph and be sure to pick out your favorite boulder for lounging while meteor hunting.

    For last minute groceries or dining options, Running Springs offers a variety of dining and shopping options with a grocery store, restaurants and fuel stations. You may also want to visit Lake Arrowhead Village with its many shops, restaurants overlooking the lake and a Stater Bros. supermarket. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, so no swimming or boating is allowed unless you’re a resident. You can however book a tour of the lake aboard the Arrowhead Queen, a paddlewheel boat that takes you around the lake, pointing out numerous historical homes and sites. Tours leave every hour on the hour from 11:00-5:00. Ticket info: (909) 336-6992


    Directions to Shady Cove. From Highway 330, exit at Running Springs. Turn right on Highway 18. Drive approximately one mile to the Deerlick Ranger Station (aka: Children's Forest Visitor Center). Turn right just past the Ranger Station on Keller Peak Road (the street sign was down last time I was there. If you pass the Valero Gas station you went too far) and proceed five miles to the fork in the road. Turn left at the fork and proceed to the Children's Forest Trail Head. Turn left at the Children's Forest Trailhead and follow the signs to Shady Cove, sites B & C. These are group sites so your vehicle may not be adjacent to your tent location.

    Orange County/Long Beach Chapter of Great Outdoors presents:

    Day Hikes in the Adirondack State Park

    Trip Leader: Doug Cable, Phone: 949-922-1452, Email: Secretary-OCLB@GreatOutdoors.org


    We will do a series of day hikes in the Adirondack State Park in New York State. We will be based out of the town of Schroon Lake. Make your housing reservations now. Participants are required to make their own travel arrangements. Food will be each person's responsibility although we hope to have group dinners.


    The series of day hikes will be easy and moderate. No day hike will exceed 12 miles. The itinerary will be set by Frederick Brown's cousin, Tim, who lives about an hour south of Schroon Lake. He will be joining us for most the hikes. He has lived in the area his entire life and has hiked extensively in the park. Some hikes may require reservations; the trip leader will take care of those. 


    You will need your usual 10 essentials for day hikes (Click Here). Altitude will not be a problem. Be prepared for possible mosquitoes and rain. Bring tick repellent and tick removal tweezers.


    We will arrive August 21st and depart on August 28th. The trip is limited to 12 attendees including the trip leader. $40 covers logistics and the tea party.


    As the initial meeting and some dinner meetings may be indoors, our trip leader, Doug Cable, requires that participants will need to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccinations. This means 2 primary shots and the latest booster.

    Mount Piños is located in the Los Padres National Forest on the boundary between Ventura and Kern Counties, California.

This mountain top location has rugged rock formations and a feeling of being quite remote.

    Conference FAQs

    What is the difference between a regular GO campout and a conference campout?

    Conference is held once every year in October (as required in the by-laws) where delegates from each of the five chapters and the Corp board come together to:

    • Nominate and elect a new Corp board for the upcoming year.
    • Vote and amend any by-law changes that may occur.
    • Schedule and coordinate the next year's camping trips.
    • Special awards and recognition will be presented.

    Who puts on the Conference?

    • Hosting conference is by one of the five chapters on a rotational basis.
    • This year is hosted by the Los Angeles Chapter
    • Next year will be hosted by another Chapter and so on.

    Do I need to attend any of these business meetings?

    • Only if you are a chapter delegate, a Corp committee chair or Corp board member; however, all are welcome to attend.

    Can I come to any of these meetings if I am not on the Corp board or a delegate?

    • Yes! We encourage anyone who is interested in how our organizational leadership works to come and observe our meetings!

    What if I am not part of the Corp board or a delegate, can I still attend the conference?

    • Yes! There will be other planned activities and events you can take part in.
    • This is a great opportunity to hang out and get acquainted with other GO members that you would not normally meet outside your chapter designated area!

    Can I attend the day activities without camping?

    • Yes, register for day use only.

    Volunteer?

    • Each Chapter elects or appoints a Board Representative to represent your Chapter at all GO Corp. meetings (usually four per year). 
    • The GO Board also consists of the following appointed committees or positions:  Archives, Awards, Bylaws, Outings, Outdoors Experience and Webmaster
    • If you are interested in running for one of the three (3) elected positions or serving on one of our Committees, attend the meetings and let us know.

    For Information only to use in trip notes

    BICYCLE CAMPING NOTES

    _____________________________________

    WILLIAM HEISE REGIONAL PARK, SAN DIEGO COUNTY

    Ample bicycling opportunities exist in this regional park located a half-dozen miles from the unincorporated Julian community (famous for its pies). It includes more than 12 miles of multi-use non-motorized trails. Situated 4,200 feet above sea level in a forest of pines and oaks along the northern extremity of the Cuyamaca Mountain Range.  The day-use and camping park spans over 1,000 acres. Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    BORREGO SPRINGS CAMPING

    An active bicycling community exists in the Borrego Springs community. Smack in the middle of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, and unpretentious, the town of Borrego Springs, population 3,429. is the only California town that is completely surrounded by a state park. It’s also an official International Dark Sky Community—the first and only one in California—dedicated to protecting the night sky from light pollution

    The downtown area has a passel of ice cream shops, restaurants, and lodgings, but the local art scene evokes the most community pride. First, there are the supersize prehistoric and fantastical beasts that both line area roads and are  sometimes seemingly dropped randomly in the middle of nowhere, far from any road or foot traffic. The meticulously crafted metal creatures, rust-colored and featuring such details as curling eyelashes and “fur” of shaved iron, are the work of metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda. Visitors to Borrego Springs who would like to camp have it especially good—you are allowed to camp for free anywhere in the surrounding Anza-Borrego State Park.

    The lightly traveled roads, including the 9 mile route from town to park, are all Bicycle friendly. Expect to encounter bicycling families and riding groups on the excellently maintained paths.  Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    HURKEY CREEK HIGHWAY 74 CAMPING 

    Last year Hurkey Creek proved excellent for bicycling. In addition to extensive paved roads within the park, there’s also a specially designated paved hiking/walking path.

    Adjacent to the park’s Highway 74 entrance is the paved Apple Canyon Road which is an excellent lightly-traveled eBike gradual climb leading to the  Zen Center. Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    GUAJOME REGIONAL PARK, OCEANSIDE, SAN DIEGO COUNTY 

    Guajome Regional Park Camping Is recommended for bicycling. It has numerous paved roadways within the park suitable for bicycling. There is also an excellent 10 mile bike path from the park into Oceanside. The trail there merges with the waterfront road leading to many shops and restaurants. And the area adjacent to the park includes signed bikeways. The bike paths and routes are all considered good quality and recommended..

    Guajome Regional Park’s brochure states there are approximately 3.5 miles of well-maintained trails that meander through diverse Southern California habitats such as woodlands, chaparral, wetlands, and mixed grasslands. There are eight named trails, including a short self guided nature trail, and a couple of unnamed trails. Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    SWEETWATER RESERVOIR SAN DIEGO AREA

    Bicycles are recommended for the several shared roads provide ample opportunity for cycling exercise.

    The park entrance is adjacent to the county’s Bonita and Chula Vista communities and the multitude of excellent bicycle paths within the greater San Diego city communities. The San Diego area is nationally recognized as one of the premier bicycling areas. The county website has an entire information section that includes bicycling maps, interactive route planning guides, and much more. The 10 mile outing to the distant waterfront and oceanside are all on available bike paths. Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    IDYLLWILD REGIONAL COUNTY PARK CAMPING

    This Riverside County Idyllwild regional camping park has a single entrance/exit road devoid of vehicle traffic. It provides bicyclists a route into the adjacent unincorporated Idyllwild downtown community. Restaurants, shopping options and tourist attractions exist.  The area’s hilly terrain limits other bicycle opportunities. State Highway 256 runs through the town and bicycle road-warrior use of the two-lane road is not uncommon. 

    Camping trip bicycle use is recommended.

    _____________________________________

    MECCA CAMPING

    Fronting on heavily traveled, and sometimes dangerous State Highway 111, this Salton Sea area state park is rather small with no bicycle paths. Without bicycle options it is NOT recommended. Camping bicycle use is NOT recommended.
