Relaxing in the forest

Clean forest air, beautiful trees, what else do you need? Barton Flats campground is kept up nicely with very clean bathrooms. The hosts do a great job making sure everything is in order. Quiet hours are at 10 and it was pretty peaceful. Jenks lake is a short 40 min hike from the campground, the trail is adjacent to the sites! We had a blast and will definitely visit again!

Great campground!

Very nice camground and very clean bathrooms. Some sites were a little noisy past quiet time and it would be a non issue if the sites were spread out better. But it happens and they usually calm down after awhile. My kids loved the wild turkeys and there are alot of them! We drove down to state street and the beach which is only about 25 minutes. Overall we had a fantastic time and will be back!

Tons of fun, tons of bugs!

Our first time here and just like previous reviews state, there are alot of bugs and they want to kiss you. Of course fire, candles and bug spray help but because of the nice creek nearby its kind of unavoidable. With that said, the bugs go night night at dark and a big fire helps. Pretty quiet site, the creek is easily accessible and great for photos. The restroom situation wasn't the best, but was expected from previous reviews and the website stating no running water. We brought 5 gallons of water for dishes/hand washing and 5 gallons of water for drinking. The sites are a little on the small side, however we did book two sites next to each other for two families of four. I suggest you bring wood, it's a little expensive in the campground and in town.

Across the street from the campground theres a store that has trail maps, information and little dry goods and toiletry. They also sell really neat Crystal's, arrowheads and bumper stickers. About 4 or 5 miles up the road there's a nice 15-20 min hike to a nice waterfall.

I wouldn't mind coming back especially since I know what to prepare for next time and it's so close to Los Angeles.
