The vibe at Boulder Basin Campground
Drop some Boulder Basin Campground knowledge on us.
This is a really nice and secluded campground. You feel very far away from the rest of the world. Great hikes nearby. The only thing is that the dirt road into the campground is a bit long and rough and adds some time to your drive.
Hard to get to without a 4-wheel drive or other car with good ground clearance. In the summer, mosquitoes can be an issue. Love coming here for good bouldering and to get away from the rest of Southern California / LA. The only place down here that I can escape to trees / some semblance of alpine.
Really lovely campground for a weekend out of L.A!
The road in can be a little bumpy but it's fine if you don't have a 4WD (I saw a Tesla sedan in there, as well as an old Kombi bus and an ancient Celica!).
The sites are nice but pretty close to each other, so if there's kids or other noisemakers it will feel like they're in your tent with you. Also, I'd avoid the sites next to the restrooms if you can.
