Horse Springs Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

For those visitors who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby Big Bear valley, Horse Springs campground offers a secluded escape unlike many others on the San Bernardino National Forest. Surrounded by a high desert environment, the campground is a cluster of juniper and pine trees that offers sweeping mountain views in all directions.

This campground is ideal for OHV users, as it is close to designated green-sticker routes and close to the forest boundary with the BLM Juniper Flats district. There are 11 single-family campsites, some with lots of shade and others with little to no shade.
