Description

Looking for some rustic wilderness not too far from the big city? Venture on over to Sulphur Springs Trail Camp. Sites are first-come, first-served, shaded, and totally peaceful. With few amenities and no-RV’s (sorry folks!) you’ll truly be able to get back to nature. Fancy some more exploring? You’re only a short drive or hike from the Pacific Crest Trail.

This camp site (on the Pacific Crest Trail!) felt pretty remote, yet only required a 0.7 mile "hike" in on an old paved road. There was a decent-sized dirt parking area right next to the gated road to the camp site. We went the first weekend in August 2019, and there was only one other group camping at this location. Plenty of large pine trees for shade and hanging hammocks, plus our site had a great flat spot (without pine needles!) for our tent. Latrines available. Very easy access to the PCT. Disclaimer: The empty beer cans and used banana wrappers in our fire pit made me think that a kid-friendly camping trip here would be a gamble. We didn't look at the other fire pits, so maybe this was an anomaly.
