Sturtevant Camp was established in 1893 and is located, ONLY via hiking trails, 4.25 miles from Chantry Flat in the Angeles National Forest. The Honeymoon Cottage is the third oldest building in Camp, dating back to the 1920’s. It is the last of many identical cabins that dotted the grounds of Sturtevant Camp. It was named "The Honeymoon Cottage" because it is so tiny it really only holds a couple comfortably in a double bed.
All bedding is provided for you so no need to bring a sleeping bag. There is a a propane heater for those chilly nights. This cabin is close to the common grounds and the dining hall, yet oriented as to provide privacy. It is also the cabin closest to the creek. Use the bathhouse with its flush toilets and hot showers for cleanup time and the communal kitchen for cooking.
This is a wonderful location for a writer's retreat.
Rather than carrying your food and personal items into Camp, consider hiring Adams' Pack Station's friendly donkeys to carry everything in on Friday morning. More information will be provided in your confirmation email.
Note: This is a Hike in site. This
cabin is only available Friday through Sunday. A five day notice to
request a booking is required as our hosts are all volunteer and need to
be notified that you are planning on enjoying a weekend with us.
Sturtevant Camp was a great spot for my girlfriend and I but it would be pretty fun with groups as well. There's a lot to do and the kitchen is fully stocked. We mostly stayed around camp the entire weekend and had a blast but there are plenty of hikes in the area to take advantage of as well. Highly recommended.
Great place to hang out in the woods for a few days. Coffee in the morning and electricity at night (also a good time to try the zipline). If you're looking for a leisurely stay in the forest, with a day hike up to Mt. Wilson or something longer, this place is perfect. Deb is an amazing host, and it was fun to have our things packed in by mules for a change. The hike in and out is pretty challenging but shaded most of the way - highly recommend.
I went out to the Retreat Cabin twice with a group of friends and had a blast both times. The hike in is beautiful and takes about 3.5 hours, which is my favorite part about staying at the camp. Anyone can go car camping, but what stands out to me about this place is that you have to put in a little bit of work but the pay off is absolutely worth it. Once there you can start a campfire, there is a full kitchen if you want to cook, board games, nearby hikes, zip line, or you can just find a chair relax and read. If you have any concerns email Deb before you head out she is very good about getting back to you especially during the week days. Can't wait to come back!
Such a hidden gem. Cabins and lodging have a rich history dating back to the 1800's. Perfect alternative to camping if you don't feel like roughing it en route to Mt. Zion, Woodson, or if you're on the Chantry Flats loop. Deb, the camp manager, was accommodating and welcomed us when we arrived. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for an unconventional weekend getaway in Southern California.
