This is a very clean camp. We had a good spot up and through the trees. Kids put on a little show in the amphitheater and had fun riding their bikes around the twisted roads. Showers were awesome too. Got a little loud when school let out but not bad.

This campground is the most beautiful I've seen in the San Bernardino National Forest, available to car camp at. The remoteness of it is enhanced with the gorgeous Incense cedar trees that tower over each site, and make your neighbors seem a good distance away.

The campground is a bit more pricey than most others, but comes with running water, flushing toilets, and FREE hot showers, which shocked the hell out of me. I know for taking my girlfriend camping or getting a quick night out, this is the place to be.

All in all the only down side I could think of would be the price is more, and some of the sites are a little close together. In the end, highly reccomended!

Lots of cedars, can't even see the trailor waiting at the enterance through themOur set up in the thick treesBeautiful morning light the next morning

This is a nice campground well situated for families. It has the nice advantage of being and easy drive from Los Angeles and Orange counties. Stay here when schools are in session for a little peace and quiet.

We went to Lake Arrowhead for a short weekend trip in late August/ September and it was still pretty busy with families, not recommended if you want a quiet site.
