Drop some Barton Flats Campground knowledge on us.
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
10/10 would recommend this campground. First off the camp hosts were so welcoming and friendly. They were beyond knowledgable and helpful with any questions we had. The bathrooms were always clean and supplied with toilet paper. Location was perfect, we stopped by Big Bear on our way home - such a beautiful drive!
