From San Diego take Interstate 8 East to the Sunrise Highway exit #47. Turn left (north) and drive about 13 miles north on Sunrise Highway through the town (don’t blink or you will miss it) of Mt Laguna (past mile-marker 25).
The Horse Heaven Campground entrance is on the left. There is a sign (on your right) but if you are driving fast it is easy to miss. If you reach the Al Bahr Shrine camp, you have gone too far.
There are three camp sites, we are the one at the end and the one farthest in on the right side (Buttercup and Hollyhock).
Dust off you axes spears and bows.
