Spend some time amongst the conifers of the Los Padres National Forest at Camp Lakota. Operational year-round, this campground is a solid choice in any season. If you have a large group, or you’re planning a good ol’ fashion sleepaway camp experience, The Big House provides everything you’ll need.

The 58 acres of simple forested beauty has been home to the Girl Scouts through several generations. Aside from the old legend that the ghost of cookies-past haunt along the far North border of the land, this campground provides fresh air and nature for any age. The property is easy to navigate and open for exploration. And when you’re spending a winter night in The Big House, the central heating is a blessing.

The private trail is a one-mile hike that begins and ends on the Camp Lakota property, and the trail tracks through Pinon National Forest. This trail is great for a group of all ages, or a solo connection with nature. You’ll probably see rabbits and possibly a deer, but my favorite wildlife sighting out there is the echoing cry of an occasional hawk. When there's snow, animal tracks can be spotted along the hike. The elevation is consistent, the trail is marked, and afterwards you’re ready to enjoy a deserved s'more huddled by the fire.

The archery range is a lot of fun, and accommodates all skill-ranges. It's $150 for three hours for large groups, and there may be adjusted pricing for smaller parties. It's a great experience, and a lot of fun.

A stay here provides the capacity to decompress and enjoy. The park's camp ranger is a really nice guy! And he’s available for any inquiries.
