Guajome Regional Park offers partial hookup sites (water/electric 20/30/50 amps), with paved driveways, fire rings, and tables. Coin-operated, hot showers, restrooms with flush toilets, and a waste water dump station. One tent and one RV (< or = 45ft.) or two tents will share each each site. Both inhabitants will have access to the water and electricity. There is plenty of overflow parking for extra vehicles.
The park is at an elevation of 130 ft. above sea level. Afternoon ocean breezes keep the park pleasant year-round.
The upper area includes an outdoor fitness area, amphitheater and volleyball and horseshoe courts. Visitors to the park enjoy fishing and hiking. Bird watchers can spot dozens of species of migratory birds that stop at the park's two ponds and marsh.
The park is close to other historical points of interest such as the Rancho Guajome Adobe, designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1970 and the San Luis Rey Mission, one of the 21 California missions, which was founded in 1798.
Other historical adventures can be experienced at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum, which preserves and displays many examples of mechanical ingenuity and home crafts associated with the early days of the American farm and industrial revolution era
There is a bicycle trailhead just outside of the park that extends through nearby Oceanside, all the way to the coast. Oceanside itself offers access to great beaches, a pier, a fine harbor, shopping, and restaurants.
