With the San Gabriel Mountains in LA’s backyard, getting away from the city for a weekend amidst the trees couldn’t get much easier. For those wary of traveling far, Los Angeles National Forest camping is a great option at just an hours drive away. Get lost in the wonder of Angeles National Forest, where you can hike to waterfalls through steep shady canyons, trek up huge peaks, stroll through old pine groves, explore colorful and vibrant plant life, and relax beneath clear blue skies. Recreation opportunities are endless—a few options include biking, hiking, horseback riding, swimming and wildlife viewing.



With more than 50 campgrounds in Angeles National Forest, the options go on and on. Campgrounds are separated into three ranger districts—Los Angeles River Ranger District, San Gabriel River Ranger District, and Santa Clara/Mojave Rivers Ranger District. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with a maximum stay of 14-days per site, and 30-days per year in the forest. Angeles National Forest also offers group campgrounds across all three ranger districts, some accommodating up to 300 people. You must make a reservation to use these group campgrounds.
