Great Views Beautiful Trees

I love the campground itself. The whole area is beautiful. Easy escape out of LA. It was pretty much empt during the week. Love that it is first come first serve. sleeping with a completely open tent and viewing the night sky was amazing. Moon lit the entire mountain up.

Cons: Lots of flies.…

Ranger Review: Mountain House freeze dried meals at Horse Flats Campground

Campground Review

We come to this campground throughout the year, and its one of our favorite spots for summer camping when we're short on time. It's an hours drive from LA and because the campground is at elevation it stays cooler during the hot months. This is my third review for this…

  • Walking around the area at sunset is beautiful
  • Heating up some water for our Mountain House dinner

Popular with Climbers

Horse Flats is a popular campground deep in Angeles National Forest.

There are a bunch of sites (more than 20) and there are vault toilets, fire pits, and picnic tables.

$12 fee per site, not sure how many cars that means but you might need the adventure pass if you have a lot of other cars…

  • November sunset from the hammock. This is the site closest to the trail to climbing (Silver Moccasin I think it's called)
  • Use the Google Maps directions.
