Guajome Regional Park

Parking is available in a lot on the right as soon as you turn left onto Guajome Lake Road. Fee is $3 (bring cash). If that lot is full, continue South on Guajome Lake Road. Turn right at the back gate/exit and park in the dirt lot on the left of the exit road. Limited street parking is also available in that area.

Visit the park web site for more information.

Picnic logistics

The picnic area has limited tables and benches, so bring folding chairs if possible. Rest rooms are available. Leashed dogs are allowed. Alcoholic beverages are permitted providing the alcohol content does not exceed 20%.

The Club will provide dishes, glasses, utensils, napkins, ice and water. Members should bring a dish (with serving utensil) to share, and a beverage of their choice.

Ideas for the way home

Old Mission San Luis Rey is four miles west of Guajome Park on CA-76 - museum and tours.

The Deer Park Winery and Car Museum with over 100 convertibles is open till 5. It is on On Old Highway 395 (we pass it on the drive to the picnic).

The Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum is two miles south of the park on Route S14. It displays examples of mechanical ingenuity and crafts associated with the early days of the American farm and rural community.
