This event is open to current member & non-members.  You do need to be a site member to sign up for this trip, but you do not need to pay a membership fee. 


Come join SAGA at our Spring outing to the El Prado Group Camp, located at 5,500 feet in the Laguna Recreation area of the Cleveland National Forest. Situated east of San Diego, the Laguna Mountain range supports a forest of Jeffrey pines and black oaks.


SAGA’s camping trips provide a chance to escape the fast pace of the city, and this trip offers beautiful vistas in a portion of Southern California unfamiliar to most non-native Angelinos. The campsite is surrounded by a canopy of trees, and is situated next to a large meadow area.


Hiking is plentiful in the area. The site features running water, tables and vault toilets, adjacent parking, and is accessible to most trailers and campers.


This is our first three night trip, with an option for two nights. Both options include all meals and
beverages, beginning with a Thursday evening light dinner, and concluding with a Sunday Brunch.
