The majority of our camping trips are last minute affairs and deciding where we will go the same day we leave is not uncommon. With that being said, I had heard good reviews about Yucaipa Regional Park. I wasn't able to contact them via telephone but hoped that there would be at least one spot available being a Monday. Of course our previous luck continued and were greeted with a full campground upon arrival. Not thwarted, we journeyed another 40 minutes to Glen Helen campground which had plenty of spots. Arriving at this beautiful lush park we wondered why there were so many campsites available but would soon find out.
The campground itself isn't part of the park but down the street and across the highway in what could best be described as a dirt parking lot with a few trees. As we were already there and it did have water/electricity we decided to make the best of it.
