  • 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.
  • William Heise county park is a terrific natural wonder. The camping spaces are large, have water at each site and a nicely level spot for your tent. Each campsite has a table and a fire ring. The bathrooms are very well-maintained and there are showers available. My wife and I truly enjoyed our visit to William Heise county park. The Rangers are first rate.
  • This Park is amazing... nature is fantastic. You and your family will get a lot fun. Begin a new adventure
  • This is an amazing place to camp. The forest is so pretty and there's lot's of scenery and hiking trails. There's gorgeous sunsets and sunrises and it's overall just a great place to be. In the summers it gets a little hot but it's no big deal. The nature is pretty and you can see so many stars at night. There's local fishing not too far and you can go get pie in Julian and bring it back. Sometimes you'll see wild turkeys and deer walking around which is nice.
