We don’t know about you, but we’re sure hoping we end up in this neck of the woods. Oak Flat Campground is one of the bigger spots in this part of Angeles National Forest, and is home to deer and oak trees a’plenty. Less than an hour away from L.A., Oak Flat is a convenient oasis from the city with heaps of first-come, first-served vehicle accessible sites for your choosing.

Drop some Oak Flat Campground knowledge on us.
Camped here last weekend. If it hadn't been 95 degrees it would have been better, but there were some strange things happening here that had nothing to do with the heat:The couple who seemed to be on drugs yelling at each other, storming off (one on foot, one in the car) and then coming back 4 hours later, still yelling at each other; The older man who parked his Toyota Camry and then sat in it ALL AFTERNOON and then left; Or the 3 30-something men who showed up, drank a case of beer and then left. This place was weird, however, it is well maintained and there were plenty of sites. There is no running water. I would only come here again if the traffic on the 5 was stopped and I needed to rest.
There can be some colorful characters to put it nicely. It seems to attract people who want to do bad things. I've had a few bad experiences there. Most people keep to themselves but especially at night it starts to feel unsafe because more people start rolling around and it gets louder at night. Lots of bugs, a wasp stung our camping neighbor on the lips while he was eating a burger. We've resorted to sitting in the tent to avoid all the flies in our face. I know they just replaced the old vault toilet that was the nastiest toilet I've ever seen in my entire life and the only reason I bought a camping toilet. Now there are 3 new vault toilets but I haven't camped there since they opened those. Just...camper beware...
