Need A Trip Recommendation (Southern California)

I was hoping to get some advice from some of you on a possible 1 night trip in late March. My wife, 2 dogs and myself are looking for places within a 2 to 3 hour drive of San Diego (not including off roading) where we can find some remote, primitive camping. Any suggestions?

I know 1 night is not that long but it is all we can spare for the next couple months . Thanks for any help.

Thanks. Anza Borrego is a big place, any spots in particular? Especially those pretty far off the pavement where we are unlikely to see many if any people.

Anza Borrego / Ocotillo are my favorites for the winter seasons..

Off the 74, you can look for the PoleLine road heading north and then veer off any trail to the west (camping allowed).

Off the 22, you can visit Font's Point, Truck Haven..

My favorite is off Shell Reef Trail near off the PoleLine Road.. also Tule Wash is awesome.

Google those trails and you should be able to find out where it is..also via Google Earth..

I usually take the 86 down from the 10 freeway.. or from Temecula..74 I think 8 someone connects up with 86..

Here is a link to Weekend Driver from SD: http://www.weekenddriver.com/roadtrip/B ... ohome.html

There is also Fish Creek.. nice tall canyon terrain you can drive thru:

Anza is a great place. Pick up a map and look for dirt roads off the hiways. It's easy. Plenty of neat canyon roads. Now is the time, too.

We have our eye on Font's point for some off-road camping. It's free too from what I understand, if you're not in a campground you are doing what they call "open camping." I wonder how much of a crowd Font's point draws overnight though.

NRL & Jeff - thank you so much for the recommendations. I will look into them a bit more this weekend to make a decision on where we will be going...and possibly ask some more questions . I will definitely post a trip report after we return. We will be going either March 22 or March 29, just not quite sure yet.

Great picture NRL. I remember that one from one of your trip reports around New Year's Eve (I think).

We have finally decided on a date. We'll be heading out Saturday morning, March 22 and coming back sometime the next day. Want to jion us ?

We're thinking of going next weekend. Hopefully before the temperature climbs up to much. It's almost end of the season for Anza Borrego since it gets to 90 and beyond the rest of the summer. Today will be 84' at Borrego, even bit hot this week around Southern California.

If it's not Anza Borrego, we head North.. Mojave, Piutes, New York Mountains..
