They don’t call it the Rim of the World for nothing. Winding more than 100 miles through the San Bernardino Mountains, this scenic byway boasts some of the best views in Southern California. And just off the route lies Barton Flats Campground, offering a few awe-inspiring vistas of its own. Just 25 miles from Big Bear Lake, this family-friendly campground—featuring dozens of single and double sites for campers and RVers alike—is a prime spot for hikers hitting the Santa Ana River Trail, the Jenks Lake Trail, and the Rio Monte Trail. Canoers and kayakers, meanwhile, can dip a paddle in nearby Jenks Lake, where fishermen can be found trolling the waters for rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, and catfish.

Take the hike to Jenks Lake while you're here. It's less than an hour hike uphill and very much worth it!

This is a very nice campsite. The showers were a plus and really well kept, cant complain about that. Jenks lake trail is nearby and a good challenge.

Great campground. An easy drive from the LA and OC area. Close to Big Bear. We used a group camp site that provided lots of room for tents and space to play.

Great campsite, bathrooms and showers are well kept. Convenient bear storage for food, etc. at each campsite. The camp supervisor was also very friendly (unfortunately I forgot her name). Short hike to beautiful Jenks Lake and relatively short drive to the beautiful but overcrowded & unfortunately littered Big Falls.

Very well kept campground, excellent job by the camp hosts in early summer of 2016. Be aware - for RV campers, there is a $5 charge to use the dump station, even if you camped there, it does accept credit cards.

Awsome beauty at this campground and its sorroundings like jenks lake and all the hiking trails. However, if you relish camping and the quiet stillness of the forest..youll go crazy with the amount of amature or maybe they just dont care campers, from doing dishes at the water spigots to not picking up after their dogs but the worst is the amount of careless people who are loud way into the night usually young drunk adults playing beer pong...the host do nothing to quiet them... the the showers were nice, the bathrooms get crowded in the morning... people doing there whole bathroom routine in them. And thats my nugget..Id go back
