We arrived in the middle of the night: easy parking short walk and easy access to the campground. The view is fantastic, the site is very close to the highest point of Santa Monica mountains
Don't get me wrong. The area in general has some fantastic sights and great hiking. The campground itself though is pretty sparse. Pretty easy to get reservations for 10+ people, but the camp sites are in a dirt area with a wooden fence around it. There are also some picnic tables and raised grilling stations for fire.
