Camp Durrwood is an amazing place and you can rest assured that you will have an incredible stay at Walid’s camp! We were concerned that the weather might be too severe to tent camp, but Walid was super communicative and gave regular updates on the local climatic conditions so we left home confident that we’d be good to go. The land itself is gorgeous - from the tall pine trees to the snow-capped mountains, the scenery is spectacular. The property features the single cleanest and well-stocked porta-John I have ever seen. I cannot recommend this stay highly enough and I can’t believe that you haven’t booked it yet!

Walid was such an incredibly gracious and accommodating host! We had Camp Durrwood all to ourselves and really felt like we were completely off the grid tucked away amongst the tall trees and snow-covered mountains. Would 1000% come back!

Our time at Camp Durrwood was truly exceptional! Tucked away in seclusion yet conveniently located off Highway 38, it offered the perfect blend of privacy and accessibility. Walid, our host, was incredibly accommodating and provided invaluable insights about the area and nearby attractions. While the campsite itself didn't have many designated spots, the vast expanse of land allowed for dispersed camping, giving us ample freedom to choose our perfect spot. The presence of three picnic tables and a cozy RV for relaxation, along with charming touches like hammocks and string lights, added to the charm of the place. Not to mention the distinctive entry sign, which added a unique touch to our experience. For those hesitant about fully embracing nature's call, the availability of a porta-potty on-site was a welcome convenience. Whether you're camping solo or with a group, Camp Durrwood offers something for everyone – be it a serene retreat or a lively outdoor adventure. We also took advantage of its proximity to Big Bear, just a scenic 25-minute drive along Highway 38. The stunning drive itself was worth the trip! In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Camp Durrwood and look forward to returning for another unforgettable experience!

Wow! Everything you could want!
I booked Camp Durrwood for a weekend getaway with friends, planning to enjoy football in the mountains during the playoffs. Before finalizing the booking, I reached out to Walid to inquire about Wi-Fi or cell service. He informed me that the service could be spotty and might not be suitable for streaming games. However, he shared that he often enjoys football in the mountains with friends and will share how to make it work. Walid was accommodating and allowed us to check in early in the morning, giving us ample time to set up. Upon arrival, Walid personally met us at the campsite and assisted with the setup. He even provided extra gas for the generator and an extra-long extension cord to minimize noise disruption. The setup worked out perfectly! Camp Durrwood was conveniently located right off the highway but offered a secluded and private atmosphere. We had the entire pristine forest to ourselves, and the picnic tables and string lights added a nice touch. The campsite featured a clean porta potty for our group to use, and there was plenty of parking space. Additionally, there were multiple spots for pitching tents, and the good areas for truck tents were perfect for the two in our group. The privacy and seclusion at Camp Durrwood surpassed any other campground I've visited. Walid did an excellent job with the amenities, maintaining a rustic feel. I highly recommend Camp Durrwood, especially for groups and families. I'm already looking forward to bringing my family back!!
