An extremely vast terrain with all types of climates, it’s hard to know just what to expect from Los Padres National Forest. A little research before hand on the National Forest Website or a quick call to the ranger’s station at (805) 968-6640 can save a lot of headache and confusion. So too will you be saved from unwanted surprise by checking out alerts regarding the forest’s campground and road closures. Large trailers and RV’s can be difficult to maneuver in certain areas of the forest under difficult conditions, so be sure and do a little navigational research by consulting a map to make sure you know where you will be driving and if it will be manageable with your vehicle. For more information on passes and permits required in Los Padres National Forest, see here.
