Beautiful spacious and private campgrounds. We had a campsite next to the creek and it was beautiful to see and listen to. Cons: The incessant number of bugs during the day didnt see as many ants as expected nor mosquitos. People dont pick up after their dogs. We had an excess of flies due to the overwhelming number of poop puddles left throughout just our campsite alone. campgrounds are beautiful w the natural mix of what seem to be some sort of large succulent w an abundance of beautiful trees and shrubs. The creek or stream is a good size- its not just a tiny trickle- you can hear the running stream while you sleep. Campsite comes with a picnic table, a small fire pit ring and bbq grill. We camped with five little dogs- highly recommend

First time camping for my 5 daughters (ages:8-12) and they loved the experience so much there ready to go back. We set camp on site#6 for only one night which turned into 2 nights. Im glad there was portable water on location. We had a visit from a bear on our first day but that didn't discouraged my girls to stay an extra day. Thank you Nature 😘

Went here for Thanksgiving weekend 2016. Awesome site just 1 hour 15 minutes from Venice, CA. Ron, the host, is super nice and makes everyone feel welcome. Make sure to bring plenty of firewood (about a cord per hour) and check fire restrictions before you go because they change a lot. Also recommend avoiding holiday weekends. There were two very large multi-family groups on either side of us that were very loud and put a damper on the "outdoor" experience. But, on the bright side, all the activity helped my wife feel safer and she actually slept through the night—a rarity for her when camping! When we went, there was no water so glad we brought plenty for us and our dog. Site 6 and 7 are great if you can get them.

Lots of bugs last time we went, probably because it's by a stream! They hadn't turned off the water at the pumps yet, so if you need extra water for putting out the fire, washing dishes, etc. you are in luck! a couple fun trails and swim holes nearby.

Secluded car camping open year round. Nice resident host Ron the last time I was there. So close to LA and yet so far. Watch out for cats! Great smaller campground, first come, first serve. You WILL need to bring firewood.
