The Big Santa Anita Canyon Loop on Mount Wilson offers dog friendly free camping immersed in thick mountain woods with babbling creeks and numerous waterfalls. The trail is dotted with one of a kind cabins but the trail camps are as primitive as it gets. Start your hike at the Chantry Flats pack station, don't forget to pay for parking, and be prepared to filter your own water. This is a gorgeous place to put in a few miles, get a little dirty, and feel like you are miles away from it all without even leaving LA.
Pro tips: There are bears in the area so hang your food and keep your campsite clean. Bring your own toilet paper. Parking fills up within an hour on weekends so get there as soon as the parking lot opens at 6am. Finish your hike with burgers from the pack station they really hit the spot!
Spent the night here and it's not bad at all. The night I went there was a retreat or something that played music through 11pm.
The walk to the lake from this site isn't too bad; it's quiet nice. Around the lake you'll find some short hikes.
If you've ever want to just get away and go unplugged for a day, is highly recommend this place considering it's under $15/night.
Sundown by 6pm for us!
We have been camping on the Oceano dunes with our young kids for years. They ride quads and Hungry Valley has different campgrounds and all kinds of trails which are specifically sectioned off for the type and size of quad or motorcycle. We all love it and tell everyone about this campground.
I camped here a couple wks ago & it was great. You feel deep in the forest & there are plenty of spots, fire pits & flat top stoves.
The toilets were boarded up but Winter Creek was flowing well.
I hiked about 8 miles from Eaton Canyon Park via Jones Peak & the Mount Whitney Connector Trail to Upper Winter Creek.
Nice little campground to pitch a tent and climb mt.baldy
