Easy Backpacking Trip in Los Angeles

Musch Camp is an easy one mile hike from from the Trippet Ranch Parking Lot in Topanga State Park. If you want a longer hike you can hike up the East Topanga Fire Road and then drop down into Musch Camp on the Backbone Trail from Eagle Junction. This will add a few more miles to your hike and allow you to make a loop by hiking back to Trippet Ranch via the one mile Musch Trail.

The cost is $7 per person per night. You can pay at the Entrance Station at the Trippet Ranch Parking Lot or the Iron Ranger at the camp. If you are parking your vehicle overnight in the parking lot please leave a note on your dashboard so that the Rangers are aware that you are camping at Musch Camp.

The campground has around 6 campsites in two sections surrounded by fencing. Each site has a picnic table.  FIRES ARE NOT ALLOWED. There is also a restroom with flush toilets' and sinks as well as a water spigot. There are also horse corrals across the trail from the campground. Some of the sites have shade.

There are meadows down the trail on either side of the campground. There is limited cell service at the campground.

NICE SPOT!

This is an easy, safe, and fun stop with the family. It’s right on top of Pacific Coast Highway and has a beautiful view of the ocean!

Bummer is that no campfires are ever allowed, unless it’s a propane fire pit, and no dogs on the beach or trails (even if leashed).

We went twice in October and got day of spots each time. Rangers were friendly and helpful.

Met great people and walked the beach a mile down to the Shake Shack. Very fun.

Extremely disappointed

I would not want the KOA name attached to the Acton LA campground. It looks like the current owners bought a campground on the way down for cheap and gave up on it completely. 

It's a mess, not maintained, trash in spots, a garbage dump called secured area, no wifi, the owner who does not wear a mask in the office when helping clients. Etc.

Didn’t see a bald eagle this time so I guess we’ll have to go back!

We really enjoyed this campsite. We did go from Sunday through Wednesday and not only was it not crowded but it was nearly empty. Apparently the weekends are quite full.

We stayed in campsite 108 (which had full hookups) and did not feel that the campsites were too close to one another. There were other campers there when we arrived but by Tuesday we had the whole area to ourselves.

Each campsite has a nice picnic table and fire pit with a grill.

We brought our bikes but there was not a whole lot of area to go bike riding. A bit too hilly for us to ride over to the boat launch area but we did drive over there to see the sights.

All of the staff here are incredibly nice and helpful. We spoke to many of them and they seem genuinely happy that people are there. The bathroom facilities were immaculate.

Rangers are eager to answer questions and I learned a bit about the bald eagles in the area from one of them.

T-Mobile cellular signal was fine. No Wi-Fi.

We will definitely go back!

Backpaking

Good backpacking camping spot. There is usually a stream for filtering water. Plenty of sites for camping.  Usually quiet when not too many people around. There was a loud group when we were there once since it is a doable hike from Red Box Junction. Trail leading to the camp can also be filled with downed trees. Takes a little climbing and going around obstacles but not too bad. Pit toilets.

Close by campground.

Easy campground to get to and close by. First come first serve sites. Does get crowded in summer season. Went there this weekend and very few people.

Nice open spots. Clean bathrooms.

Great TT park. Only negative is the trains!

Weekend backpacking

Close by campsite and pitstop on the way to Mt. Wilson. Great overlook of the Los Angeles. Lots of bugs around good thing we had a head net. Not many people around when we were camping so it was pretty quiet.

Beauty away from the city

Perfect stopping point for backpacking. Went here in May and we were the only 2 here. Plenty of water flowing and tree cover from the sun.
