"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead



2020 is a big year for our company as it relates to our US Forest Service Outfitting Permit. The last 2 years have been an important pilot project for the growing glamping and outdoor hospitality industry, as well as the outfitting program in general. None of this would’ve been possible without the support of USFS Descanso Ranger District office, especially Lindsey Steinwachs.

We’re ecstatic to announce that our 2020 expanded outfitting proposal was accepted today. Our glamping operation is growing and we’ll also be providing expanded outfitting services as follows:

- We’ve been allocated 6 permanent glamping sites between Laguna and Burnt Rancheria Campground.

- Host a GLAMPING EVENT. We’re your official event hosts! Let us help you plan your wedding, birthday, corporate retreat or other special event in the pristine beauty of our Cleveland National Forest. Alter Experiences is now offering event staging at Horse Heaven, El Prado and Wooded Hill Campground for GLAMPING events up to 100 people.

- In addition to glamping, we’ll also be providing rental equipment for experiences such as mountain biking and backpacking. We’re collaborating with some amazing non-profits in support of trail maintenance, etiquette, and the continued development of outdoor recreation activities.

We continue to place priority on sustainable tourism and business, responsible travel and the stewardship of our Cleveland National Forest. This work would not be possible without the continued support and encouragement of our family, friends and glamping tribe.

Let’s make 2020 a year of adventure and environmental stewardship! We look forward to hosting you!

Glamping Retreats

Our glamping sites are nestled in the high mountain forests of San Diego's backcountry - sky islands where pristine nature & wild-life thrives. These are some of the most remote & biologically diverse habitats in all of Southern California that include many open space preserves, National Forest Lands and State Parks. Each one of our sites is handpicked to offer you a truly nature immersive experience. We strive to create the most comfortable outdoor experience possible, even at our most remote locations. We take all that's fun about traditional camping & combine it with modern comfort & state of the art equipment.


Baja Adventures

Discover Baja Norte and the gateway to Southern California's last frontier. Soak in the Baja sun along the warm & clear water of the Sea of Cortez. This stunning & revered body of water is one of our planet's most bio-diverse habitats, teeming with marine life & a variety of pelagic species. Rest & unwind on a white sand beach under a Palapa with a pina colada. Enjoy some fishing from the shore, or take out a paddle board & explore the bay. Whether you're visiting Baja for the first time, or have visited Mexico before - this experience will truly immerse you in the natural wonders, biodiversity and culture of Baja California, Mexico.


Mountain Biking

Among the funnest activities available in our San Diego Backcountry is mountain biking. There are numerous mountain bike trails to choose from that are very close to our glamping sites. Big Laguna Trail and Noble Canyon are 2 of the most popular and can be done as one long track. If you are new to mountain biking, or want to try the latest MTB equipment, Alter Experiences is your one-stop-shop for bike and equipment rentals in Mt. Laguna. Book your mountain bike rental HERE
