Get into LA’s high country at Horse Flats Campground. At 5,000 feet in the crisp sky, you can say bye-bye to the smog laced highway country of the city, and hello to deep breaths. Sites sit in a forested meadow under the tall pines shade. Be sure to load up on water as there is zero on site. By day, explore the terrain around. By night hop in the hammock and thank the lucky stars above you, all billions of them.

The vibe at Horse Flats Campground
Drop some Horse Flats Campground knowledge on us.
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.
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.
