Amazing spot

We went camping right before the snow storm and it was pretty cold but still so amazing. The staff are very friendly and let us know about the coyote lurking about and the big freeze warning and made sure we were gonna be warm enough. We camped just a few steps away from the lake, there were other…

Nice camping place with bathrooms, shower, firepit and a charcoal grill.

Nice place to camp, weather is around 75 during the day and about 50 to 36 degrees cold through out the night. Has everything you'll need. Bathrooms are close by, showers HOT water available. Camping sites are too close together. Other than that it's great. Not many people this time a year. Had a…

Love it!

Total first come first serve campgrounds. One, maybe two, bathrooms that are usually always stocked with toilet paper and are very clean. Plenty of room between sites so you feel secluded, but there is room to meet neighbors as well!! Absolutely love it. Offroad trails nearby too!

Was not prepared for this disappointment

I did make a phone call to them before leaving and driving some 30 miles to get to their location which is in a rather secluded rural area and we were told that yes to come down and upon our arrival they completely changed their attitude. Let me explain a little something I am a burn survivor and…

Spaced campsite, easy location

Good campsite. I had spot #28 in the grennel loop. Big campsite that that has no neighbor to one side which is nice. Massive amount of space around the site. Never cool meadow and creek to see. Camp host was informative and easy to talk to

Best Campground in Big Bear

We spent 4 days at the Ranch on a Peninsula Site near the Barn. Sunrise and sunset views are absolutely gorgeous. Clean porta potties, fire rings, we had two picnic benches and far from any other campers. Staff was amazing so sum them up. We will be making this trip I imagine twice a year. We'll…

Nicely maintained campground

Campground is open and has a few spaces available. The grounds are nicely maintained and the bathrooms were really clean. The camp hosts were very nice, knowledgeable.

Cozy and close to home

We just spent last weekend here at Serrano Campground. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place is well maintained and clean. Campsites have ample spaces in between there are a lot of flat places to pitch our tents. There are a mix of tent only, converted vans and trailers in loop but it…

Beautiful Campground!

I absolutely loved my stay at Pineknot. The spacing between sites is generous, and although it filled up on Friday and Saturday, the grounds remained quiet. If you’re looking for a peaceful getaway, I’d definitely suggest booking during the week, and choosing a site near the back of the grounds. My…
