Quiet with Views

Great spot, clean vault toilets, and a good view. Only downside was the incredible high number of yellow jackets in the area and a fire restriction.

Starry Nights in South Rim

Tent camp in an officially recognized International Dark Sky Park! 

Bathrooms and drinking water are located through out each loop. Shower and laundry a little walk at the entrance to the campgrounds. 

By day there is plenty of shade and trees. The National Park shuttle system has a stop a the front of the campsite to get you anywhere you need to go.  

Nights are cool and the starts are incredible, one the the best star gazing locations in the nation.

Clean, primitive camping

Great spot off the forest service roads near Big Bear, truck or SUV recommended for the drive in. Campsites are spaced nicely, tall trees, and some of the cleanest vault toilets I have ever used. Camp host present to regulate and sale firewood. Located near the Gold Fever Trail, hiking, climbing, and a lot of 4-wheeling. A little pricey for a primitive spot with no water or electricity.

Close to beach but overcrowded.

Great location on the beach but very crowded and campsites stacked on top of each other. No privacy from neighbors. Freight train passes by often and loudly. Waves break very shallow and limit activities in the water.

Perris SRA

Plenty of sites and activities including fishing, swimming, kayaking. Short drive to the Ya'i Heki' Regional Indian Museum in the park. Great camp store with everything you may have forgotten. Clean facilities.


Great tent camping facilities, privacy from neighbors, access to Zanja Peak Trail head, 3 lakes for fishing, water park during the summer, and friendly helpful staff
