Our mountain neighborhood lot mixes the security & community of a quiet mountain forest neighborhood with the hosts & home near campsite to assist with special needs, while still providing seclusion, beautiful mountains & forests, & so much to do on the entire mountain from Crestline to Big Bear.
Our camp is walking distance to hiking trails. Over the summer enjoy free weekend concerts at the Lake Arrowhead Village. Lake Arrowhead is 1.3 miles away for shopping, fine dining, karaoke, concerts, and ferry rides. Lake Gregory is 6 miles away for relaxing on the beach front, fishing, and swimming. There are also farmer's markets on the weekends.
Accommodations include a fire pit area, space for your tent, a tent compost outhouse, and a hose with a shower nozzle. Also on the property, is a small music & production studio, available for rent at affordable prices & includes a green screen for fun family photos.
*This campground is limited to one group/booking per day. We don't have multiple sites nor space to provide privacy for separate groups. Depending on tent size/quantity, we can take 1 group per night consisting of up to 12 people max
To get here trouble free, turn onto Rim of the World dr, and turn left on the small road called Inspiration (adjacent to Mountain Towing} to get to Burnt Mill dr, which you will make a sharp right on to get to our property, which will be on the left.
(Do not take Rim of the World all the way to Burnt Mill drive which wraps around the back side of our place and requires a rough dirt road to get to us. Instead, make sure and keep your eye out for the small road called Inspiration to get to our street, Burnt Mill dr)

The vibe at Madcap Camping
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Kane and Malia were great, great hosts. It was their first time but they did such a great job accommodating us, even though we made the booking quite at the last minute.
The camp site is a little tight but we really liked how the fire pit area is right on where your tent would be. This really is a great option for camping within the trees in the SoCal area!
I think they have some really great ideas on improving the place so it will only get better. As of now, we had little to complain.
NOTE: please note that this is in a residential neighborhood, so it's not as secluded/private as some people would like. Still, being in the back of the house, we saw no one and barely heard Kane or Malia in the house!
