September 9, 2012 (San Diego) – Parks and Rec has created a camping PSA to be shown in movie theaters and on cable television.  Next time you settle into your seat and juggle your popcorn and your soda, keep your eyes on the giant, silver screen.  Along with reminders to turn off your cell phone, you’ll see a reminder of another sort - how to enjoy the outdoors at our County parks.

The sneak peek of sorts is a one-minute message that takes you back to all the fun, laughter and memories to be created at the 100 County parks right in our backyard. Eight of the parks are camping facilities that offer more than just a night under the stars. Remember making s’mores at the campfire?

This is the first time County Parks and Recreation has ever put together a message like this for local movie theaters and television. 

The video will make its debut in mid-September at four AMC movie theaters in the County, ranging from Escondido to Otay Ranch. They are among the largest and most popular theaters in the region. Cox Communications also plans to run the video starting October 1.

All the County camping facilities are RV and tent friendly and offer either partial or full hook-ups. Some parks even feature cabins. You can take a virtual tour of the campsite locations and book your camping reservations online at Or, call (858) 565-3600 to book reservations.
