    My husband and I rented a cabin for our family of 6 (4 children 6 and under). The cabin was the perfect size with four bunk beds and a double bed in front. Some hints: 1. Cabins do not have bathrooms ...  more »

    June 5, 2017 made the trip from Orange County. The beautiful blue sky was a wonderful back drop to the hiking we did. Well maintained trails. Cost was $3 to enter, per car. 4 miles off the main road. ...  more »

    My husband and I visited the park this weekend for some bird watching and photography. We saw turkeys and deer. The foliage has grown back after a fire swept through many years ago. My husband is thin...  more »

    Whether to camp or just hang out for the day, it's a wonderful place to be spend time. It's clean, maintained, beautiful and has a great atmosphere. People are friendly, you see deer grazing and playing, little bunnies and other fun wildlife. Can't wait to go back.

    This is a very clean, well organized campground. It's HUGE, with lots to do and plenty of trails to explore. Just leave your firewood at home because you can only burn what you buy here. Also quiet hours start at 10pm and they are strictly enforced. If your fire is still burning at 11pm, you will be awakened to extinguish it. If you're clean, quiet, and don't make a fuss, you'll love this campground! The place is crazy busy from February to Thanksgiving Day. Make reservations on the website.

    Went on a foggy day and it was absolutely magical. Combined the Canyon Oak Trail with the Desert View Trail. My two doggies enjoyed the walk with me. Only a short drive from Julian and this park can certainly be a part of a wonderful day or week up there.

    What a great park. Spent a couple nights at William Heise County Park this July with our family and had a terrific time! Our cabin was super clean and well maintained, as were the restroom and shower facilities. Hiking trails were well marked and we all had a great time. The ranger staff was very helpful and talked with us about the wildlife and park history. Would happily return.

    Great easy get away. Cabins are fun. lots of great hiking for all skill levels. Very nice facility. Can get packed on holiday weekends. Easy drive into Julian from there. Never had a bad time with the exception of one lady ranger that was very rude, but just stayed away from her. Other rangers have always been awesome, so the bad one was trumped.
