 Lodging

Unfortunately, the State Park will no longer be allowing tent camping adjacent to the starting area of the race.  Car camping is still ok, and we are also offering the dorm rooms once again.

The dormitories consist of a large common room split into 4 sections.  Each section has about 12 bunk beds, and restrooms and showers are inside the building.  The charge for a bunk is $53 per person, per night.  This fee is set by Camp Cuyamaca, and the race makes absolutely no money from this service.  If you would like to reserve a bunk, you may do so through Ultrasignup when you register for the race.

Click here to reserve a bunk after you have already registered.

Camping is also available at Paso Picacho and Green Valley campgrounds within Cuyamaca Ranch State Park

The Lake Cuyamaca Lodge is nearby, and has scenic rooms overlooking the lake.  They are right outside of the State Park.

Nearby Julian and Alpine would be good places to look for a hotel.
