Great spot along the PCT. Our site even came with a creepy manakin… make sure to look for it and add a sticker!
Each site has its own fire pit and we did not expect to find nice bathrooms here, but they were great!
This campground is awesome! We stopped here on the way into Wrightwood via the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail runs right by and there looks to be a lot of other nearby trails too.
Every campground has a picnic table and fire pit. There's a pit toilet and a stream nearby where you can filter water. The campground has a cliff that looks out over lower elevation mountains and we got to watch the clouds drifting over the mountains just below us. So beautiful!
I highly recommend staying here if you have the chance. If you come during the hiking season, late April to late May, you'll probably see a lot of other hikers but otherwise it seems relatively remote and quiet.
