The vibe at Serrano Campground
Drop some Serrano Campground knowledge on us.
Serrano is an awesome spot, centrally located to awesome hiking, biking, fishing and water sports! Bathrooms are clean, and firewood is available to buy at the check in area! Make sure you check our the Cougar Crest Trail, located right next to the campground!
Serrano Campground is a nice place to get away from the big city. Roughly a 2-hour drive from L.A., Serrano offers scenic hikes, short walks to the shore, and decent-sized campgrounds. Across the lake is the town of Big Bear where you can easily access grocery stores or restaurants. The camp hosts at Serrano are absolutely lovely. They make it super convenient for you to check in and they monitor the campsites routinely throughout the day. The bathrooms have flush-toilets and even sometimes provide hand-soap! All in all, I would say Serrano is a great place to get away and relax- even if it's just for one night! Be sure to make your reservations EARLY because this is one of the more popular campgrounds in Big Bear!
Serrano is a convenient and comfortable campground, ideal for families and campers who want some nature without roughing it too much. There are a lot of sites and during the summer months it can get pretty full. There are flushing toilets, hot water, and even showers. I really like the location of the campground. There is a paved bike path that goes through the campground and along some pretty views of the lake. It also connects to the Big Bear Discovery Center.
