If your looking for a near campground near Los Angeles, la Canada, Pasadena then look no more. This place is one of the best campgrounds I’ve ever been that’s near to where I live. It is self-serve only $12 a night and there is many things to do here. Go on a adventurous hike, watch the wildlife, just be lazy and BBQ, and especially in the night OMG it looks so beautiful. The stars flickering in the night is the best thing that I love. But let’s not forget that beautiful sunrise and sunset and those beautiful redwood trees. This place is great for big groups there is plenty of space, it does get crowded in the weekend and holidays. Also it’s a bit noisy with neighbor campers partying it up but I mean every campground is like that.

Also this place is one way in and one way out. Don’t get confused many people do. Also I don’t recommend big RVs because the roads are very small. But if your a badass driver then go for it 😁

So pretty, but a little loud!

I love this campground for the area. Beautiful trails near by, next to a stream, gorgeous views, and of course that mountain air! Trees are perfect for hammocks. I’ve been here a couple times and it’s always been really crowded and loud, and if you want to party in the woods, this is the spot! If you’re looking for a more remote area, this isn’t it. Still an enjoyable campground and if I’m going with several friends this will be the place we go!

All time fave

Love love love. BUT best when not a lot of people are camping unfortunately. Get there early to grab the best spot. Look for a stream and shade! The rocks, trees and streams in the campground and the hike are amazing.

Not for those seeking quiet and seclusion

Easy to get to, but fills up VERY fast. Open spaces for large group camping. Fire pits at every campground and easy to walk to hiking trail. Most of the people camping there played loud music all night. Not exactly a get away from the city.

Quick Getaway to Nature

There’s about 38 campsites  

If you want to do group camping there’s plenty of it there . 9-10-11 are the best ones with shade together , they have a campfire circle big enough for 10+ 

Plus there’s a nice waterfall trail which will be 2.5 in & 2.5 miles back

Gem tucked away 👌🏽

We love to travel and camp but can’t always carve out the time for a long drive out of LA. We found this gem, just 1 1/2hrs from LA and you’d never know you were anywhere near the city. It’s the perfect getaway, birds singing, and the scenery makes you feel like you’re in Tahoe. Amazingly quiet space, so tranquil and an absolute perfect temperature in August during the day and night. The only thing I’d recommend is bug spray, there’s lots of flying critters but that’s about it. We love this place and will certainly go back!

Very nice camping site

First come first serve Nice trail Must have an adventure pass and $12 per night if you camping

Quiet, Well Maintained, Great Hiking

Lots of space between campsites. Babbling brook to lull you to sleep at night. Very quiet after 10:00 pm.Great for families. Great hiking trail that was very well maintained.
