"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

We're very excited to host you again at Laguna Campground starting August 1st. Be one of the first to book with us and see all the new changes!

Much work has been done to renovate the campground; including upgrading bathroom facilities and other public areas. These very important renovations have been on-going since early this year, which unfortunately resulted in the unexpected closure of the campground.

Welcome to Lion's Den - Burnt Rancheria, Mt. Laguna.

This secluded group site features a combination of tree tents, as well as 2 bell tents. One bell tent includes a queen bed and sofa bed. The other bell tent is a plush lounge with 2 sofa beds that can sleep 2 adults or up to 4 kids.

Lion’s den is also outfitted with our 2 story tree tent, as well as a double tree tent for couples. There are also a variety of multi-level Tentsile hammocks for an elevated lounge experience.

We weren’t exactly sure what to expect when we took the decision to open up our doors again 2 weeks ago. The business environment has changed so drastically over the past months and the subject has been a sensitive topic for our rural communities in the San Diego backcountry. We weren’t even expecting to be open until at least June 1st. We were informed about the sudden decision to open up the campground on May 15, with just a 72 hour window to stage and prepare all of our sites. We weren’t even sure if people would be comfortable traveling again under the circumstances. We faced lots of concerns and uncertainty on whether to resume operations again.

Is your business model sustainable, scalable and completely automated? What are you doing to build a brand culture that people want to get behind? In this monumental time of technological convergence and acceleration, how are you leveraging on-line tools and applications to help your business grow?

In these crazy and uncertain times for entrepreneurs specifically, as well as the world in general, we’re thankful to have made it through the chaos of COVID-19 and everything else that's ensued thereafter.

Things seem really different now after 2 months of so much abrupt and unexpected change. The world before COVID-19 is quickly fading into memory.

Shutting down our operation was the easy part. It was only disheartening in that we had been working on so many new and exciting development that were placed on hold. After 2 years of building and proving the worth of our business model to the US Forest Service, we were eager to proceed under a three year concession and expanded outfitting services.

This was a major milestone for us after 3 intense years building the company to where it is now.
