YUCAIPA Regional Park Campground

January 31st

I never quite got my posts completed from our last RV trip (((embarrassed grin))).

Now that we are once again on the road, I thought I would do a quick post this evening to at least mention where our final stop at the end of January was – Yucaipa Regional Park Campground.

We followed Dick and Karen under “the bridge”, moving north from Temecula along Highway 15.

This bridge always captures my attention

We had originally planned on spending a couple nights at Yucaipa Regional Park, but the weather darkened and with high wind warnings, we cut our stay short.

The park offers beautiful panoramic views of the San Bernardino Mountains and Mount San Gorgonio. It is located near Oak Glen, Redlands and other mountain communities, including Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear and Running Springs.

The campsite area is well maintained

In fact, it is practically in our backyard.

Here is what the official Yucaipa site says:

“It offers a wide range of outdoor recreation including:  fishing in three lakes, a swim complex with dual flume water slides, and sandy beach area (open Memorial Day through Labor Day).  Camp surrounded by scenic vistas – and there are beautifully appointed large group shelters holding up to 350 people with built-in grills and running water.  Open picnic tables and grills are plentiful throughout the park.  And you can toss horse shoes year-round as well as play disc golf, too!”

The campground area is nicely groomed. We drove around the park and checked out the fishing lakes as well as the swimming area.

Fishing was great – the lakes are well stocked

This would be a GREAT place to bring kids.

Swim complex with large slides

Even though we only stayed one night, it is a place I would return to – but, I would be sure to bring my fishing pole!

GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that even though this post is very late, I could still reflect on my photos and be thankful for the day shared with friends.

    On time or late—- I always enjoy your posts. They are not only interesting, but educational. I love your thoughts and the beautiful photos-such as this gorgeous succulent you have included here.
    Isn’t it wonderful to see how many cool places there are to see “in our own backyard”?
    Thanks for sharing so much of yourself with us.


    • Thank you Brenda. I know that you and your family are always on the go and have discovered some pretty amazing things to see and do right here in Southern California. And YES, we are so fortunate to have so many opportunities within a short drive.


  6. Good to see you both again and I forgive you for the long lapse. 🙂 I hope you wintered well and are ready to hit the road again.
