Nice sites with a couple of vault toilets and bear proof trash cans. nice fire pits and lots of logs for sitting. Not much water in the creek in fall but it was moving pretty well. Fair number of hikers and bikers pass through.

Parked at the turnout off of Angeles Crest highway and walked down (about 1mi) with my dog for one night. My pup got a couple of goat-head stickers in his paw on the way back so that's one thing to watch out for. Good place for a one nighter to scratch the itch, especially if you're short on time.
