I think August and September. I don't like to get to Southern California until after school starts, but September is early enough that most campgrounds are still open.

We started our son on our tandem and a triplet (3-seat tandem) around age five. He's now almost 12 and still loves it. Hands down a tandem with a stoker kit is the best option if you want to do longer rides. Second best is a tag-along like the Burley Piccolo or Weehoo. The Weehoo is better for younger kids because it's kind of a cross between a trailer and trail-a-bike, but I think the Burley gives more of a "real bike" experience. We had a Burley Piccolo before we got the tandem set up with the stoker kit, and I think it handled really well. Their mounting system is rock solid. Don't waste your money on anything that clamps to the seatpost.

Be advised that a number of campgrounds may be closed in Sept and Oct.

Thank you very much, this is exactly what I was looking for.  Are there any tour leaders out there who do a dual duty type situation with a significant other ie. 2x tour leaders? 
Good afternoon!
Pat & John, thank you for your replies...

Paper map & San Diego it is then!

My son is 4.5 years old and has just about outgrown his Burley trailer.  We have done lots of day rides and commuting to/from school, and now I would like to take him on multi-day bike tours.  (I'm an experienced cycle tourist.)  He has a kid's bike with training wheels, so I think he has a feel for sitting and balancing on a bike.  My Q: I'm not sure what type of tagalong would be best for cycle touring.  I'm considering the Weehoo i Go, but would like input from other folks before I purchase it.  I've considered a tandem and modifying the stoker's pedals for him, but a tandem seems like a lot of $$$ and perhaps something for us to consider when he gets a little older.  Thanks!
