Description

At the core of San Bernardino National Forest, and less than 2 hours from LA, you’ll find the tasty fresh oasis that is Applewhite Campground. Two loops provide diverse camping options: the smaller loop having the better view of Lytle Creek Canyon, the larger having more shade and bigger sites. A short walk across the street to the Applewhite picnic area brings you to Lytle Creek. There you can you can stroll back into time and play and listen to earths melody flow down the creek.
