Not bad but could be decieving

The campground wasn't terrible, as it had alot of amenities like showers, bathrooms, dump station, fire pits, picnic tables, etc. The front gate was kind of odd and annoying at times as you would have to wait but once it was open some people would sneak into the campground during the day basically…

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…

Dispersed Camping Near Big Bear

First come first served dispersed camping just outside Big Bear. Near bike trails. Was not crowded mid week, but spots were filling up closer to the weekend. There are a lot of flat spots to choose from.

Quiet, spacious

I only saw the first 9 or so sites and stayed I think at site #9. For the most part, spacious spots, fire ring, picnic table, a lot of trees, and varied slopes. Road in is placed initially then dirt but is fine. There's other rough roads further in and access to hikes nearby. I loved how quiet it…

Great short trip close to big bear

The place is great. It has firepits and picnic tables. Plenty of trees for shade but some yellow post sites are steeper than others. I stayed at yellow post 12. The camp sites are close but still quiet. Verizon had 2 bars but very slow internet. Phone calls are okay. For a spot that's free and no…

Great Dispersed Camping in Angelus Oaks

Dirt roads were well kept. I came with a 170 wheel base Sprinter Van w/ 2 wheel drive and had no problems making it to site post #11. I arrived on a Wednesday and had a quiet stay. I saw 2 other RV’s in other sites on the way in. My site had a picnic table and a fire pit. I had spotty internet on…

Nice and quiet

Girls trip to big bear. Saw a beautiful fat rattle snake in the camp. It didn’t bother us.

Terrific Dispersed Spot

My wife and our friends love this spot. As a matter of fact, we got engaged at nearby Jenks Lake and celebrated here after. No facilities, but if you have your supplies, it’s great. There are a couple loops and lots of spots. Enjoy.

Worth your bucklist!

Super fun place to visit with the hot springs trail. Went in January with snowfall, hardly any campers and nature all around! Two nights are perfect.
