Oh the sweet smell of pine! Stayed for 4th of July weekend watching the stars and milkyway go by. Awesome campsite, very clean toilets and showers. Surrounded by pine trees every where! there's a couple of lakes where you can go and fish. 5k elevation so day time gets hot even when the temp is low.

The town is very close and you can walk there in 2 mins. They have bars, markets, restaurants and other small town stores. So if you forget bring water or wood for camp fires they're available. Plenty of hiking trails and if you want to go hiking up the mountains, permits available at the ranger station where you enter the campgrounds.

Nearby neighborhood has potential for some noise, especially in the evening. Otherwise a very calm and peaceful campground! Gorgeous paths within campground for exploring with kids and pets. Walking distance to town, but it's a long walk - I recommend driving into town, but walking inside campground. Nature Center nearby offers discount tickets for accessing its trails and museum if you're a camper!

Beautiful!!! Nice and cool and surrounded by trees! Lots of places to hike and find time a lone or am adventure with a loved one! Don't forget to bring water! There is a lodge up the highway if you need anything.

10/10 recommend! We stayed here this weekend so (late november). The weather was pretty chilly at night but the campground was so clean and beautiful. There were giant trees completely surrounding us. Each site was spread out enough so that we had enough privacy. The rate was only around 30 dollars a night. The bathrooms were spotless! We brought our dog along with us and you do have to keep them on a leash but she was happy to be sitting with us by the fire! This campsite is right by a TON of beautiful hiking/sightseeing spots. If you have pets, I would highly recommend the Ernie Maxwell trail in Humber Park. Also this campground is right by markets and cool little shops and restaurants. My husband and I will for SURE be returning.

I always try to be mindful of other campers and respect the volume, but at this campground, there's many that just go to party and make noise. Makes me sound like a grumpy old man, but when you're drunk and yelling at 1 am, there's just a limit.

Great campground! It's got everything you might need and located a five minute walk away from downtown Idyllwild! Highly recommend it to campers of all experiences!
