Great Camping At StageCoach Trails! Southern California's Must Stay Getaways!

Nestled in between some mountain ranges in the high desert of San Diego county sits a camp ground like no other!
Just East of the old historic gold mining town of Julian, California, you will find Stage Coach trails.  I recently went to visit my granny who lives down the road from Stage Coach trails horse camp and RV resort, so my family and I made a reservation for one of the cabins that are available at the camp ground.

Stagecoach trails camp ground is very quiet with some very friendly staff.  If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place!  The night sky reminds you how far you are away from the city lights by the extraordinary abundance of stars that appear in the night sky!  Great for star gazing.  The cabins here are clean and comfortable.  Our cabin slept the five of us with plenty of room.  There was a bathroom, shower room, a small kitchen with a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.  There was also a TV, but only for DVD usage.  no cable.  They do ask that you bring your own linens.  The beds had a fitted sheet but no blankets.  They provided bath towels and soaps.

The camp ground is very well kept with plenty to do for the whole family!  There are horse shoe pits, tether ball, beach volleyball courts, basketball courts, and a swimming pool to cool off in the warmer months.  There is no spa on the grounds, but if you wanted to relax your bones there is a hot springs nearby that is only a short drive away!  My kids really enjoyed playing tether ball, mostly because they had never seen such a game and were completely intrigued by it's simplicity.

When I said getting away from it all, I meant it!  There is no cell service at the camp ground, but honestly I didn't miss it that much!  It was kind of nice being completely unplugged for our time there.  If you absolutely need to check your emails, call, or text someone there is service a little over three miles down the road.

The Stagecoach store is well stocked with anything you may need.  My daughter was having allergies and I had forgotten to pack our Claritin, but purchasing it at the store was no problem.  The store however does not sell Alcoholic beverages or tobacco.  So if you want to relax with a glass of wine, or a beer under the stars  make sure you bring plenty before heading down the hill!  There is also no gas station near the camp ground.  The nearest fuel stations are either in Borrego Springs, or Julian.

This camp ground boasts plenty of space!   Plenty of RV spots with full hookups, tent spaces, cabins, and even horse corrals!  The horse camping is a fantastic set up!  plenty of corrals, a circle pen, and lots of places to ride.

During the day, stay at camp and enjoy their many amenities, or venture out!  There are plenty of hiking trails nearby.  You can go to Julian for the day and pick apples or enjoy a piece of their famous apple pie. You can tour the old gold mine, or visit a winery.  You can head the other direction and visit Borrego Springs, where you can play a game of golf.

We had a great weekend visiting family and enjoying the simple life of no cell phones, emails, or Ipads.   Thank you Stage coach for providing a comfortable place to lay our heads.  We will be back!
