Crabby kids? That's blasphemy at Crab Flats Campground. Who can be upset when they’re surrounded by huggable tall pine, oak, and cedar trees? And especially when they’re whizzing through miles of prime OHV trails for the picking (9.7-mile Redonda Ridge Trail and 26-mile Holcomb Valley Road, to be exact). Wanna take the tykes fishing? Secure the angling gear to your whip, and get gone fishin’ to the Green Valley Lake--a hefty day hike at 6 miles from camp, or a heck of a ride if you’re on two wheels.

Decent campground with some pretty views near Lake Arrowhead etc. Took my mom camping here for her birthday when I couldn't find anything else available in the area.
