1/24/17 in Menifee, CA (Wilderness Lakes-TT)
We had some concerns about the snow/ice possible in the foothills we’d be crossing, so considered going via I-10W and I-215S. Lots of recent snow and cold weather has brought the snow level down.
On our way by 9:30 (just a 1 ½ hour trip). We like to go via I-10W, SR-79 S, Ramona Expressway, North Warren Rd, Domenigoni Pkwy, Laguna Vista, Rockport Rd, and then Briggs. All went pretty smoothly, no snow in the hills.
THEN we hit a detour on Warren Rd due to water on the road. It wasn’t too bad but in one area we were accosted by trees on both sides of us. No problem if you’re in a car, but not fun seeing those branches scrape your very expensive paint job.
We were also concerned about the flooding in our campground, but thankfully they hadn’t gotten as much water Sunday and Monday as they’d expected so we had a decent chance to find a good site. Also fortunate, we got all set up just before a rash of rain caught us!
We’ve been here before, so I’ll be brief: large campground with spacious FHU sites, both 50 amp (free) and 30 amp. A mall is nearby (including a grocery store), fun places to visit and a lot to do at the campground. There are several canals, so lots of birds love to hang out here as well. My favorite farmer’s market is in Old Temecula.
