Don’t forget to keep a sharp eye out for the local wildlife; they didn’t put bear bins in the campground for their good looks.

Want to escape the LA heat or just camp out an hour and half away from Los Angeles? Very clean place, the hosts are really nice and they sell $6 firewood onsite.
Alot of picnic area around this area for day use. Running water and flushed toilets around the campground. It's part reservation and part walk-ins available depending on the season.

Great campground, very clean restrooms, flush toilets and water.
Mostly family camping and RV's. Across the entrance ampground is Jackson Lake. Looks like a pond now with green/brown-ish water. Muddy and can still catch small fishes. Not far from small town.

The Jackson Lake is a bit dry and no info to when they last fill the lake with fishes. the lake is almost a swamp due to low water. you can still try to fish around the lake or just relax.
