One of the best granite bouldering and top-roping areas in Los Angeles. The boulders start at Campground 8.

This was a good campground for Angeles National Forest. Each spot seemed to have just enough trees to create a personal area of shade. It's not a lush campground but not many are in this area.

It was very windy here which made it very cold at night. Be prepared.

Super easy to get to from Los Angeles and feels like you're very far away from the city. I went after work on a Thursday night and there were only a couple other campers so we basically had the place to ourselves. Lots of trails and easy hikes from the campground but it was really buggy. Bring bug spray for sure. Not sure how busy it gets on a weekend night but it was really nice and accessible. Only drawback I could see is that if it is busy, the sites are close to each other so you may be near your neighbor.
