Our favorite campsites around San Diego are, Laguna and Burnt Rancheria (Cleveland National Forest and less than 60 miles from home.), and San Elijo State Beach.
Have you stay at Crystal Cove Moro in Laguna/Newport yet? I was a bit surprised how much I liked it. San Elijo is on my to-do list so I might see if I can add it to the front end of the South Carlsbad trip. I'm just starting to wander to different places but most of my camping has been at San Clemente (love full hook ups).
Santee Lakes sounds familiar - is it in the San Diego area? I will check out Burnt Rancheria because I like the forest too. Just not crazy about mountain driving - almost but not quite yet.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
