The vibe at Heart Bar Family Campground
Drop some Heart Bar Family Campground knowledge on us.
This was a great campsite. Sites are far enough away from each other for privacy, trees weren't too dense, leading to great star gazing and the hosts were absolutely charming. Will be camping here again.
Heart bar is a group site campground featuring vault toilets, bear boxes, and running water. The campground makes for a great stop for those looking to visit Big Bear Lake, hike San Gorgonio, or go fishing on the Santa Ana River.
The campground is bare on the forest floor with no scrub or brush but surrounded by thousands of tall, thin pines. The camp sites are a good distance apart but you would be able to hear loud neighbors for sure.
One nice part about the campground is the abundance of sites to choose from, and a meadow a small walk away that is often full of grazing deer in the evenings.
I would rate this campground a 7/10, but only when the fire pits are open.
A decent campground within a couple hours of the major population center that is LA. The campsites are pretty well spaced out which is nice for a little more privacy and there is a decent amount of trees throughout the campground. The vault bathrooms aren't the best, but I have seen much worse. Bring a light with you to the bathroom because it was dark even during the day. There really isn't a whole lot to do in the area, but this is good campground if you just want to chill and hangout on a short weekend getaway. Be aware they charge $5 on any second vehicle at your campsite, even though it says you're allowed 2 vehicles.
Heart Bar is a fantastic campground not too far from LA. If you're looking to get out of the city even for a quick one nighter. This is a great spot. If you have a 4WD vehicle, even better, as there are roads just past the campground. Great for people who just want to setup, post up, and camp.
