with proper funding any campground can be great. This site was riddled with friendly staff and great nearby trailheads to some gorgeous hikes. wish there had been bear boxes at the sites other than the ones for refuse. Some people had recently destroyed the main bathroom by obnoxiously smashing all of the porcelian, leaving campers for 21 spots only two bathrooms to toggle between. Humans are so vile. For larger groups this was not ideal. With proper funding this place could really be a gem.
Top of mt Baldy road.. almost as far as you can drive. Not many sites, about 20. One giant loop. No reservations needed.
Unfortunately, this campground can get rowdy on weekend evenings with people , who frankly have no respect for nature and the outdoors.
But during the week, it’s usually pretty quiet.
Major trailhead close by
most sites under trees
take care with your food.. I had three little bears cruise by me at dusk last November
