Campo Indian Reservation, San Diego County, California
Contributed by Steve Paul Johnson [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Recorded on February 13, 2000. Total records = 25.
Very picturesque, and well maintained indian cemetery. A total of 128 markers were counted, mostly wooden crosses, painted in either white, blue, or black. The paint on the wooden markers was not weather-worn, suggesting they had been repainted before. A large monument in the form of a cross stands in the middle. No grass, all dirt. Only 25 markers had inscriptions.
I saw no name for the cemetery. About 500ft past the cemetery, on the road, there is a sign pointing towards the cemetery with the words "Juancito Loop". The cemetery itself lies in the middle of this loop. Thus, I referred to it as "Juancito Cemetery". There is also a deep pond near the cemetery, with a dam, and a swinging rope for diving.
To reach the cemetery, take Interstate 8 to the Live Oak Springs exit. Proceed south on Old Hwy 80 until you reach the town of Live Oak Springs. Turn left on Royal Rd, heading towards the back of the community; the road turns into "Like Oak Trail". Continue on and you will cross over a cattle guard. Continue for about 4.2 miles and you will reach a fork, where the right fork leads to the Horse Camp, but you want to take the left fork. The road becomes dirt here. After 1.0 miles you will come to an intersection, do not turn, keep on this road. Another 1.0 miles you will pass by an old abandoned church with a new church next to it. Keep going straight for another 0.2 miles and you will see the cemetery on the left hand side.
