8 new cabins to open at William Heise County Park
County Supervisor Dianne Jacob and the County Parks and Recreation Department will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Tuesday for eight new family cabins at William Heise Park east of Ramona.
The cabins, which sleep up to six people, are furnished with bunk beds and rustic-style tables and chairs. Each cabin has heating, indoor lighting, Wi-Fi Internet access, a fireplace and an outdoor picnic table and fire ring/grill.
The public is welcome to attend the ceremony. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for two nights and two days of free camping in one of the new cabins.
William Heise County Park is at 4945 Heise Park Road near Julian.
Brian Albright, director of San Diego County Parks and Recreation will join Jacob at the ceremony.
Some 4,200 feet above sea level at the northern end of the Laguna Mountains, Heise county park is nestled in the hills. The new cabins will help meet the demand for more cabins in the park, which attracts year-round visitors, including winter snow-birds.
Heise now offers the most cabin sites at a County park — 24 — along with103 tent sites and two group camping areas.
