La Jolla Indian Campground
Off Highway 76 in the valley just below Palomar Mountain sits the La Jolla Village Indian Reservation. Since the 1930’s San Diego locals have packed up their families on hot summer days to head out to the La Jolla Indian Reservation to camp and lazily tube down the San Luis Rey River. Camp spots go for $30 per vehicle, while a single day use pass is $20. Bring your own innertube or rent one for $10 a day.
Visitors are allowed to launch their tubes from any location on the campground. The higher up you launch the longer and sweeter the ride. You can tie your tube to a rock and soak your feet while tossing back frosty beverages with your friends and family. The campground is also home to La Jolla Zip Zoom, the longest zipline in Southern California. For $99 per person or $299 for 4 people, you can zoom above the river and valley at speeds up to 55 mph.
