Private campsite

I went to stop by checking campsite. That day office was closed, but I got flyers.

Very Private

Perfect get away close to the city clean, hook ups, hiking trails, beautiful views

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.

Awesome campground

Best place in angeles forest for a great weekemd getaway. First come first serve. 2 loop campgrounds either one is good. Great view all around. Definitely will return..

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 resort, well maintained

Very well maintained campground. The spots are groomed and clean when you come in. Great Long Beach location, a nice bike ride along the beach to Naples and the Queen Mary. Highly recommended.

Great campground close to beach

Sycamore campground in Mugu State Park is a great campground close to the beach with large spots to park your trailer and car.

The only downside is that there are no hookups so this is boondocking at its best.

Bees everywhere

Camped here last year in September. Close and convenient campground however would not return. Noisy at night. When we were cooking meals, dozen of bees would swarm around our food. We had to cook and eat quickly for the bees to go away. There was plenty of shade under the trees. There are small trails near the campground as well. The lake was more of a mucky and algae filled pond. But was a decent trail around with the dog. First camping trip for the doggie and she got pretty scared of the wolves howling at night. Not an outdoorsy doggie.

Nice open spots. Clean bathrooms.

Great TT park. Only negative is the trains!
