Nice TT near LA

This is a good location to explore LA and greater LA area, 45 min to Hollywood sign. Park is a large TT resort with recently remolded lodge in 2019. Great place to stay if you are a TT member road to resort is windy and narrow but easily manageable with larger RVs. The town of Acton is small rural town with a few stores. The area appears to be a flash flood area with heavy rains. We enjoyed our stay and mainly used it as a base camp to explore/ sight see LA. Does offer all the amenities TT resort park typically offer, but it is a TT so expect something to be out of order/closed such as laundry, pool or at least one amenity, but I have come to realize that is one of the bargain trade offs of TT membership.

Love it!!

We absolutely love it here! Great campground with an awesome staff!

Great Campground for the family !

Nice campground Very family oriented Great for kids to play, run and ride their bikes all day long Walking distance to the beach Convenient store located in campground Closest grocery store is about 10 minutes away

Lots of Rats at night Make sure you bring rodent repellent


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.

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.

Nice open spots. Clean bathrooms.

Great TT park. Only negative is the trains!

Sycamore canyon

We stayed here for the weekend in site 50. This was a great campsite! On the end and very secluded. A very short walk to a nice beach. It was not crowded, and most neighbors were respectful, except for the newbies running their generator at all hours! I like this place because you get the woods feeling in the campground, but walk 5 minutes and you are on the beach. Will definitely return soon.

Nice size sites

We visited here last weekend. Had reservations for site 30, which was nice. However, very loud inconsiderate neighbors. They had a huge clan of screaming children and barking dogs. Plus they ran their generator during quiet hours. We walked around the park on day 2 and saw a lot of open sites, and requested to be moved if possible. While the person at the kiosk did let us move, she was not friendly about it, and in fact was quite rude. She said they have every right to be loud in a public place. What about our right to enjoy nature in peace? If I went to a movie theater, a public place, people do not have the right to be loud and ruin my experience, right? Beware of L. Albers, she is not nice. In any case, we moved to site 118, which was beautiful, and quiet. The sites are all pretty big, and are spread out. A bit of a long walk to the beach, but we didn’t have kids, so it was ok. I would go back.

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.
