You hear that? It is the mountains calling you, and you must go. Why not bring the whole family while you’re at it. Big Pine Flat Family Campground is an easy jaunt from the So-cal sprawl, and you will feel worlds away once you arrive at the 6820-feet elevation campground. First-come, first-served status for tents and 30-foot RVs means that you don’t even need to plan ahead. Just go when the mood strikes you, but try showing up early to get the best spot. Don’t forget to check for fire restrictions before you blow your paycheck on hot dogs and marshmallows to cook over the fire.
