The La Jolla Indian Reservation was established by the President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant, on December 27, 1875. However, the Payómkawichum (Luiseño People) have a history in this area that stretches far beyond that date. The La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians, one of the six federally recognized Luiseño Tribes in Southern California, have always been a strong, resilient, and resourceful people.
In the early 1930s, the Tribe established the La Jolla Indian Campground. The La Jolla Indian Reservation spans nearly 10,000 acres located at the base of Palomar Mountain in Northern San Diego County, California. Much of the land remains undisturbed wilderness, teeming with native plants such as Sage, Chia, berries, oak trees, and game like deer and rabbit. These traditional food sources continue to be consumed by tribal members to this day.The trading post, aside from its offerings, is appreciated for its cleanliness, friendly staff, and affordability. The gas station, open 24/7, allows travelers to fuel up at any time. The convenience store, with its reasonable prices and variety, justifies the drive for many.
