Like most campsites near LA - try and get here Sun-Thurs and avoid weekends. Its a good ground, lovely views but nothing particularly special.

This is a really nice campground. Lots of trees for shade and there is a hike next to it.

I camped here a few years ago and had a terrible experience, but it was 4th of July weekend, so maybe that was part of it. On a side note, it is shady and has some decent sites, though not very private. It's also sort of hard to get to - a very windy, narrow, dirt road off the main road.
