Great campground

Campground is well taken care of and quiet. There is some road noise in the snowberry loop at the top.

It was great!

The staff members were really nice, seemed clean over all, not too far from the town of big bear.

Nice little campground

Water and electric only on camp sites. No dump site there. There's nice shade on probably half the sites, the other ones have little or none. Nice views of the lake but it's fenced off and access to the lake and park close in the evening. There is a small older bathroom there a flush toilet and a…

Best spot for first time campers

I’m new to the US and always wanted to try to stay in the wilderness. Making reservation at this camp ground was one of the best decisions I ever made. I got the taste of what it feels like to camp and live in the wilderness, but the luxury of decent civilization. I camp at the evening star area.…

Cleanest National Forest Campground

Real toilets and urinal puts this site at the top. Relatively small site with maybe 20 spots. All are well distanced, easy to setup in and there is a running water faucet for clean outs. Tucked kinda away and 40 minutes from Big Bear Lake it's not the most convenient place to be.

Day Hikers Dream

Visited in September. The nearby adventure trailers are endless. Perfect for the adventurer photog.

Nice and quiet

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

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.

Out in the middle of no where....

My family would camp here once a year for 4-5 days.  It is dispersed camping, so there are no hookups or designated sites.  It is primarily for off road enthusiasts, however, we just came out here to enjoy the desert and go for walks.  We would usually go toward the end of the year when it is not…

Trona pinnacles

Aside from it being hot well because it is the desert. It was fun the kids enjoyed it and I did too. It was cool to see were they have shot some movies one being the planet of the apes. Just remember when your driving out here to visit the pinnacles bring water and sweat rags it's a lot of walking…

Nice last minute spot

We found this campsite while we were in big bear and called the number listed who is a representative of the state park not the campsite. She was wonderful and told us how to get there. Drive was not bad we made it in a jetta safely. They were first come first serve and came back around to check…

A place to stay if you must.

Full hookups, concrete pads, picnic tables. Many full time campers parked with junk around them. The grounds need a ton of cleanup. Not the safest feeling being in this park.

Great desert location!

This was our first time going to this campground and we loved it! It was entirely sold out for both weekend nights, so plan ahead.

We found the campground to be very clean and well-maintained. The toilet facilities were also very clean and did not smell.

The campsites in the area where we were,…
