great and they're making it better

great accommodations. the bathrooms and showers were always clean. there was some construction going on, since it was the off season. it looked like they were renovating some of the bathrooms and aisle end sites to add grass and decks. the location was close to the freeway, which was a positive and negative. you could hear some traffic from the freeway or nearby road at times, but usually not. no complaints.

close but lets you feel like you're far away

we've overnighted here multiple times. its divided into an upper and lower section of sites. all first come first served. no complaints. you must pack in all water. no water source at the site and a simple outhouse available for a restroom. the hike to the site has a decent amount of include, so prepare. we've seen multiple groups bring large coolers and regret it each time. you do get a lot of moisture in the mornings because of how close you are to the coast.

nice quiet trip

we chose this site based on its central location to points if interest we wanted to visit while in Oregon. we didn't spend much time at the site, except for dinner and to sleep. it was quiet and the onsite staff was friendly. no complaints. very quiet.

Pleasantly surprisedI

To be honest, this site wasn't our first choice. We booked late because it was a last minute trip and couldn't find other availability closer to big bear. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised and will be going back in a month. The site was fairly large. We fit four tents in our one space and could have easily added more. There were plenty of trees in the area for shade or hanging a hammock. Bathrooms were relatively clean (for a campsite) and water was easily accessed. Lake arrowhead isn't a public lake so it's a bit of a drive to do any water activities, but there was a close offroad trail. Not my first choice in the area, but a good back up when big bears all booked.
