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.

Greaaat Campground.

One of the best campgrounds with a beautiful nature. Highly recommended.

One Of The Best

Great car camping location with lots to do. Plenty of camp sites but they fill up fast, especially during the summer on weekends. Very comfortable with all the amenities and enough space in between sites for low noise. Very beautiful with tall cedar, pine, fir and spruce with a nice creek in the wet season. Trails going all over the place, some easy some steep and wild life every where you look. Simple tent sites to bigger trailer pads for every type of camper. Probably the best campground in SoCal. Great for kids.

Buckhorn, San Gabriel Mountains

Beautiful campground. A little over 6000 feet up in the pine trees. The campground fills quickly for the weekend. It’s a first come/first serve so get there early. If it’s full there’s other campgrounds nearby, but a lower elevation.

Theres hiking trails right out of the campground. A stream runs through the campground in the spring.

No traffic and not a lot of people in this area. Great little getaway.

Goid for small RVs. Over 24 foot not recommended.

Most beautiful campground in the Angeles National Forest!

We've wanted to camp here for so long, but we've never been able to get a spot. We finally did this weekend, and it fully lived up to our expectations. Because this campground is set within a ravine that has a stream during the rainier months, so the landscape feels very different than the other nearby campgrounds - very green with tall trees. The campsites have plenty of space between neighbors, so we felt we had privacy and weren't disturbed by any noise from other sites. Each site has a picnic table, firepit, and bear box for food storage. There is a water spigot at the campground, but the ranger advised that it's not potable.

There's day parking at the end of the campground for the trailhead to Cooper Canyon Falls. In the summer the "waterfall" is barely a trickle, but the hike still has a nice stream and is worth doing.

Best Car Camping Spot in the Angeles Forest

This place is lovely and a well designed campground. It is however very popular, you need to get there early to get a good spot. It is set back from the road a little giving you a quieter experience away from the 2. This would be a good first car camping spot for families with young children.
