Recreation

The campground provides access to a variety of hiking and mountain biking trails, including the Grays Peak Trail, which leads to Hanna Flat Campground. The 3.4-mile trail starts with some steep climbing before easing into a gradual incline after a mile. The Butler Park Fire Lookout is a short, 1-mile hike or bike from the campground.

Fishing and boating in nearby Big Bear Lake are popular activities. Anglers can look forward to a catch of trout, bluegill, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass. Because of cold water temperatures and the presence of underwater obstacles near the shorelines, swimming at the lake is somewhat discouraged, unless done in designated areas.
