Downtown Trabuco,  California

Today, our son Enzo was invited to a friend’s birthday party at O’neill Regional Park campground. We usually go through the entance at Via Con Dios, which is close to our home, however the campgrounds are closer to the main entance at Trabuco Canyon Road.

Because it was a drop off and pick up kind of party, we decided to see the immediate area, hoping we could go around and pick him up after, then head home together. 

After dropping him off at the campground (TIP: We found out that O’Neill Park allows a 15 minute drop off with out having to pay the entrance fee), we went to the Trabuco General Store. I read about this place while researching the Holy Jim Trail. I didn’t realize we passed it on the way to the park’s entrance. If you’re are heading down from Rancho Santa Margarita towards the canyon, it is tucked at the corner on your right after you pass the narrow bridge, with Trabuco Elementary school on your left.

I looked inside the store and even though it’s a small store, I’m sure you can find what you need in case you forgot something for when you are camping. I purchased a couple of bottles of Trabuco Salsa and a bottle of Trabuco Queso Blanco after looking at the merchandise offered.

We asked the cashier what else is there to see in downtown Trabuco as we saw a water tank with a “Downtown Trabuco” sign by the parking lot. She said that there’s this grocery store, and Trabuco Oaks steak house (that will open later in the day) and that’s it! 😊 So much for trying to kill time!
