Drop some Idyllwild Campground knowledge on us.
Pretty campground within walking distance to shopping in town - best of both worlds!
GREAT mountain shop nearby (Nomad Adventures) with friendly staff who know their stuff and provide great hike advice.
Site #4 is heavily shaded, #17 has dappled shade (our stay) - you will want shade during summer months.
Sites 21-25 have uninspiring view of a truck facility next door, so avoid if you can.
Pines, oaks, manzanita and STARS!
5 minute showers are enough to clean body and a few items of clothing before shut-off.
Some have mentioned noise of road - not too bad for us, but we were midweek. Some folks come up to party LOUDLY all night and this was an issue, but camp host and a ranger # that is posted on bathrooms took care of this promptly.
Pretty campground (for the most part) with walking distance access to town. GREAT mountain shop (Nomad Adventures) in town with terrific friendly staff who really know their stuff.
The campground has nice showers that are set at 5 minutes, which is long enough to do a good wash-up of body and a few items of clothing before the water shuts off. It is cold at first, then goes to a medium heat throughout - there's no hot/cold controls.
Some sites have great shade, some not so much, which you will want in summer. #4 is heavily shaded by oaks, #17 has dappled shade. 21-25 have uninspiring views of a truck facility next door. Noise can be an issue. Some folks come to party all night, but campground host and a nighttime # to call fixes it fast.
Nice campground but don’t expect peace and quiet. It is right next to Hwy 243 with heavy traffic all night and on the LAX flight pattern. Not to mention loud kids and barking dogs.

Great campground! It's got everything you might need and located a five minute walk away from downtown Idyllwild! Highly recommend it to campers of all experiences!
I always try to be mindful of other campers and respect the volume, but at this campground, there's many that just go to party and make noise. Makes me sound like a grumpy old man, but when you're drunk and yelling at 1 am, there's just a limit.
10/10 recommend! We stayed here this weekend so (late november). The weather was pretty chilly at night but the campground was so clean and beautiful. There were giant trees completely surrounding us. Each site was spread out enough so that we had enough privacy. The rate was only around 30 dollars a night. The bathrooms were spotless! We brought our dog along with us and you do have to keep them on a leash but she was happy to be sitting with us by the fire! This campsite is right by a TON of beautiful hiking/sightseeing spots. If you have pets, I would highly recommend the Ernie Maxwell trail in Humber Park. Also this campground is right by markets and cool little shops and restaurants. My husband and I will for SURE be returning.
Beautiful!!! Nice and cool and surrounded by trees! Lots of places to hike and find time a lone or am adventure with a loved one! Don't forget to bring water! There is a lodge up the highway if you need anything.
Nearby neighborhood has potential for some noise, especially in the evening. Otherwise a very calm and peaceful campground! Gorgeous paths within campground for exploring with kids and pets. Walking distance to town, but it's a long walk - I recommend driving into town, but walking inside campground. Nature Center nearby offers discount tickets for accessing its trails and museum if you're a camper!
