We did a short weekend trip to Julian July 2010 and stayed overnight at the William Heise County Park Campground which is off Hwy 78 just west of downtown Julian. We ate lunch at Jeremy's On The Hill Restaurant (Yum!) on Hwy 78 just a couple miles west of our turn off to William Heise Park. We had made reservations online for both the lunch, campsite #90 and pre-ordered a couple pies (Yum!) to be picked up at the Julian Pie Co downtown. We hiked some trails within the park where we saw lots of woodpeckers, and many, many different types of plant life. The campsite was full and our camping section was shared with a large group of about 15 toddlers/little ones with one or two that cried almost the whole time we were there. This seemed to be a fluke as the rest of the park wasn't noisy at all, so we plan to return. The Ranger was great - greeted us well & was informative. I liked he came around about 10pm to let us know the fire needed to be out in an hour (we weren't keeping track of any time). There were few insects, showers & bathroom in short walking distance, water spigot close by. We did a little shopping in Julian at The Cider Mill, an antique store, & I took advantage of the hardware store to pick up a few things to avoid the usual crowds back at home.
