Close to Frazier Park, Chuchupate Campground is the perfect spot to mellow out and leave the rat race behind. Ditch the phone and computer—you won’t need them (but do bring the water). Time to embrace the solitude at these spacious campsites.

Swarms of gnats tried to land on our eyes as soon as we stood still. Since there is no camp host and noone locks the gate at quiet hours a group roared in at 2 AM with 3 trucks and decided to reverse into parking opposite our tent and unload their dirt bikes. This took a half an hour, during which their truck headlights lit up our tent where we were trying to sleep. At 2:30 they roared off somewhere and roared back in again at 3:30 AM, at which point they decided to chop wood. Since there is no camp host and the gate is not locked at night this campsite is not a peaceful place and is very open to misuse.
Huge. Numerous campsites. Most of them are too close together for my liking. Plenty of trees. Easily accessible. I was lucky and had the place to myself, but I can imagine on a busy weekend it might be full of campers, coleman coolers, and tommy bahamas.
