Welcome to Urban Camp Foothills, an RV campsite tucked away right at the base of San Gabriel National Forest! This charming spot is perfect for an outdoor getaway near the mountains.

About the Property:

Urban Camp Foothills was a canyon at one point - called Chiquita Canyon - and now there is a neat reservoir you can check out. We are only 4 miles from the Rose Bowl - we love hosting visitors for the Rose Parade, Huntington Gardens, Descanso Gardens, and Norton Simon Museum. We are also conveniently located near Brown Mountain (which has great mountain bike trails),  Eaton Canyon Waterfall (a great hike and very refreshing on a warm day!), and Sam Merrill Trails for some more hiking options. In addition to hiking and mountain biking, you'll find that horse back riding, playing golf, and attending concerts at the Rose Bowl are some other exciting activities to do near our property. If this is of interest to you, the drive on the way to visit Mount Wilson (via HWY 2) is breathtaking and highly recommended! 

We purchased our 2-acre property 20 years ago. This property has the perfect combination of feeling like we are away from the city, yet also being so close to tons of amenities and attractions right at the base of the foothills. This area has become a popular spot for hikers, mountains bikers, and horseback riders. We invite you to experience Altadena - which means above Pasadena!

We hope you enjoy the open space and mountain views as much as we do!

About the Listing:

Come park your RV on our property and set up camp at one of the prettiest and most convenient locations that Pasadena has to offer! We have an electrical and water hookup available for your RV, and we do allow generators. You can enjoy a bite to eat at the private and provided picnic table near your campsite. Please note, there is no 'kitchen' area or cooking utensils provided, so please bring all equipment if you'd like to cook! There is also potable water available onsite for guests - a tap as well as host-provided water jugs. We have a few campsites, so you should expect to see other campers on the property throughout your stay, you can wave and say hi if you'd like!

You can enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer from our property - there is really something for everyone. 

Additional Details to Note:

Perfect mountainside location with the city action only a few miles away. Kathy was generous with her knowledge of Pasadena and how to see everything we wanted to.
