Thank you all for your replies!
We are now seeing how long it takes to explore...will most likely spend the rest of October in California, so I'm glad this thread started exploring San Diego campsites. This is the best forum ever, thank you all so much!

One little tid bit of advice. You'll find yourself in a campground from time to time. In the winter months there's lots of people that are full timing or snow birds. Talk to those people, you'll be amazed at the information about great places to camp. Be flexible and enjoy the exploration.

We've enjoyed the AZ, CA, and NM National Parks in the winter. There's also BLM lands. Lots and lots of helpful people where ever you go.

It's the same

Canada is getting the same way . We were tent camping on Crown Land in an abandoned sand pit on a logged out section of woods in Ontario. We were told we could not camp there and we had to leave by Canadian authorities . The closest town was 34 miles away and had a population of 74 so it wasn't a zoning or noise issue. . We never did get an explanation for having to leave but when you are a visitor in Canada you do what your told

Cheap Camping and SoCal Beaches are mutually exclusive terms. The State Beaches mentioned can cost up to $50 a night for dry camping and, unless yor reserve well in advance, ferget weekends.

Except out in the desert areas, in SoCal about the best $$$ bet can be Regional Parks in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego Counties, but again, none are near beaches.
