    Anyone know of any good camping spots in socal? I need to start reserving for this summer. We like:

    Trees, not desert
    toilets, not necessarily flush
    Dirt roads, not paved
    More remote, not to the point of no toilets though

    Live in OC, willing to travel up to 2 hours or so.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    exact numbers I dont know, I just know the entrance was off of the 79 and it was about a long dirt road to the top and there were a bunch of designated campsites

    My idea of camping is straight roughing it!!! As far a bathroom...what's wrong with just a hole.

    Cuyamaca! Loved it. Family oriented and fun.

    Another option I would highly suggest is Joshua Tree!!! Great trails for our trucks and for streaking in nude (not that I've done that or gone off roading with no clothes on). :D http://www.nps.gov/jotr/
