Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF aka Demo) and Camp Loma are located in the Santa Cruz Mountains between the southern boundaries of Santa Cruz and San Jose, just north of Watsonville.
Search Google Maps for “4 H Camp Loma, 29650 Highland Way, Watsonville, CA 95076” or visit the Camp Loma website for detailed directions offered on their “Map & Directions” page.
Parking space is limited, so carpool as much as possible. If you are camping with us at Camp Loma, we’ll get you setup with parking near the campground. NOTE, that you cannot actually drive to the campsites – you will need to carry
your camping gear to your campsite.
