Weekend @ Lake Jennings, near SD

Another little close-to-home trip to practice our glamping skills. Nice little campgrounds at Lake Jennings, outside San Diego.

We had a nice site overlooking the lake. Beautiful view at daybreak!

We are somewhat incompetent campers, and had no matches or lighter, or fire-starting skills of any kind. Lucky we had nice next door camping neighbors who helped us get our campfire started and then hung out to chat.

The campground is right outside of town. Took a bike ride down to the town and back up. Wanted to bike down to the marina, but they don't allow bikes! It's actually a drinking reservoir...so, lots of rules regarding going near the actual water.

A fun time! Learning new stuff every time we head out!

Lake Jennings

We also had a nice site overlooking Lake Jennings 6 years ago...

and were lucky to pull our trailer out with our 2-wheel drive F-250!

Never had any other potential problems pulling our trailer out of sites until we encountered loose sand, 5" deep, at Agua Caliente, 2 weeks ago!

Agreed! Funny thing was, this was almost too close to home. We were totally enjoying the driving part of the adventure, and then suddenly, there we were in less than an hour. We were both totally disappointed that we got there so quickly! haha!

I lived in the San Diego area for years and the last 2 were in Santee. I was surprised to see so much happening around the lake I used to fish in. Of course I haven't been there since 1977.

lake jennings

As a teenager in El Cajon in the 1970s, that was one hot boring campground! Glad to see the nice greenery. We'll be heading back next summer in our 70s AS to live nearby after 30 years in DC. might even go to Lake Jennings.

We love Lake Jennings!! Such a nice little campground and very close to home! I think my husband responded to your thread about Palomar Mountain.. I am surprised he didn't mention Lake Jennings to you! Glad you had fun...
