My family and I arrived around noon on Friday in early June, and there were quite a few spots open. We chose 18- on the back loop, close to the exit. The spot had a nice picnic table, fire pit, and a decent amount of shade. However, we could still hear the traffic on the Angeles Highway, and the camp sites were pretty close together. There were several outhouses- some were well kept, others not so much. The best part was a semi-hidden hiking trail (go through the white gate marked no parking). It was easy enough for kids (our ten year old loved it) and long enough that you can reach a point where you don't hear traffic anymore.
It's a good campground to quickly escape the city for a night, but we wouldn't recommend it for a long trip. -$12

This campground is almost always empty. Very peaceful and private but close to the road. Also very sandy and not very wooded.
