What better way to celebrate Independence Day than by camping?
Camping in your local state park is a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July. It is definitely a popular day for camping, but don’t worry if you don’t have a site booked yet — there are still some parks with camp sites available on Thursday, July 4.
GREAT NEWS! The proposal to put a toll road through San Onofre State Beach was rejected by the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board at a hearing yesterday. This is a huge win for the park.
The Water Quality board rejected a permit for the Transportation Cooridor Agencies (TCA) that would have allowed a six-mile expansion — the Tesoros Extension — of the Foothills South Tollroad. Opponents to the proposal felt this was just the first step towards a longer extension into the park and Trestles coastal habitat area.

Over 300 people attended the hearing to protest the toll road, and there were 6 hours of public testimony. Incredible!
