General Information

  • Campsites are first-come, first-served, unless listed as reservable.
  • Overnight stays are limited to 14 consecutive days maximum per campground--and a total of 30 days overnight per year per national forest. Regulations
  • Where fees are required, check-out time is 11 a.m., unless otherwise specified.
  • An extra night will be charged if you stay after 11 a.m.
  • Some campgrounds in the forest are managed by the Forest Service, while others are managed by concessioners (businesses operating in the forest under permits). Fees in different areas can vary. Please visit specific campground webpages for more information or call one of our offices.
  • Not all campgrounds in the Angeles National Forest require a camping fee. Some Forest Service-managed campgrounds, even for day-use, require a $12 fee. This covers eight people and one vehicle. Senior or Access America the Beautiful Pass holders can obtain a 50% discount on camping fees only. (Adventure Passes are not accepted in-lieu of camping fees.) There is an additional $5 cost for an extra vehicle per night. Vehicles must fit in existing designated spaces and not block any roadway. 
  • Some campgrounds do not have water available. Bring your own water for the duration of your stay. 
  • Always check the forest's Alerts & Notices webpage for updates prior to your visit to learn more about fire restrictions, closures, office hours, and more.
  • Fire danger levels can vary a lot throughout the year. Pay close attention to fire restrictions, as you may not be able to cook food onsite and may need to bring cold food and skip the S'mores. This includes both portable (charcoal, gas, propane, etc.) and onsite grills or fire rings. In addition, campfires may be restricted even with a California Campfire Permit. 
  • When campfires are allowed, based on fire danger levels, a California Campfire Permit is required. The permit can be obtained online at Prevent Wild Fire | Campfire Permit (, at one of our offices, or stop by a U.S. Forest Service fire station. 
  • Be sure to purchase your Adventure Pass or America the Beautiful Pass before arrival at campgrounds and/or visiting other developed forest facilities. Some forest offices sell passes, as do certain businesses.
