JPL Approved

This is a nice hike-in campground with about ten sites available and a privy. Lots of hikers up here on the weekend ( and weekdays too). There's no running water but the creek is usually running so bring something to treat the water. The parking is available either at Oak Glen Park or further north on the streets…but check with the city on overnight street parking. Very beautiful now that the canyon vegetation has grown back in and there are plenty of trails in the area for miles of hiking. Lots of wildlife. Fire rings in camp sites but check for fire permits. Funny to see JPL scientists walking aroud up here with their ID badges hanging around their necks.

Primitive Backcountry near the City

This campground has pit toilets and no running water. If you are in LA and looking for the back-country feel without a long drive, this is just a 3 mile hike or ride up the canyon from Altadena.
