National Forest

Angeles National Forest


Escape to Mountain Oak Campground in the Angeles National Forest for a restful, refreshing getaway from city life. Just northwest of the Los Angeles metro area, Mountain Oak provides a scenic and relaxing destination for camping, hiking, picnicking and wildlife viewing. The campground is also near Jackson Lake for easy access to fishing, canoeing and swimming.


Swim or canoe in the refreshing waters of Jackson Lake, the only lake near Wrightwood. The lake is stocked with trout and bluegills. Powerboating is not permitted in the lake, so the setting is peaceful and quiet. Hikers can find trails near the campground.


The single-loop campground provides lots of shade from towering trees but minimal privacy from neighboring campgrounds. Ground cover is mostly pine needles and leaves. Bear-proof food containers are provided at each campground and amenities include picnic table, grills and flush toilets. Drinking water is also available. A camp host is on-site, offering firewood for sale.

Natural Features

At an elevation of 6,400 feet, Mountain Oak is shaded by oak, ponderosa and sugar pines in the Angeles National Forest. This forest, spanning across most of the San Gabriel Mountains, provides a striking backdrop for the Los Angeles area. Jackson Lake spans just 3 acres and lies in the San Gabriel Mountains. Formed by the San Andreas fault, the lake is primarily fed by snow runoff from the mountains and is hugged by grass and sand beaches. The lake is ideal for listening to nature's soundtrack, complete with sounds of birds singing and leaves rustling in mountain breezes. A diverse variety of animal life exists in Angeles National Forest, such as bobcat, mountain lion, bear and Nelson bighorn sheep. Many species of birds and smaller animals also inhabit the forest.

Nearby Attractions

The Angeles Crest Highway, part of California State Route 2, is a scenic byway that meanders through oak thickets, chaparral, high desert landscapes and pine tree forests. The ski resort town of Wrightwood is very close by. Restaurants and a disc golf course can be found at the North Resort.__ Take a hike on the Blue Ridge Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail. The Pacific Crest Trail is an impressive path that starts in Mexico and zigzags its way through Angeles and continues north across California, Oregon and Washington.

Walkup campsite was a WINNER!

The previous day Lake Campground was the destination, with hopes of adding another night to my weekend, But to no avail we were given an option to move over from site number 2 to Mtn Oak campground which was about 1/4 mile from Lake Campground. the area was clean had shad, flushing toilets and water spickets close to all campsites. The evening was beautiful with a show of brilliant stars that speckled the night sky. The campsite was flat and roomy. It was a great location and will be back again.
