Angeles National Forest Campground Brochure

Angeles National Forest Campgrounds

Most campgrounds on the Angeles National Forest are first­ come, first­ served. However, some are managed by concessionaires who do take reservations. The National Forest Adventure Pass or Interagency passes are not required if you visit a fee campground and remain in that area; they are required if you leave that campground and recreate elsewhere on the forest. Campfire permits are not required at campgrounds where you have paid a fee, but trail camps and dispersed camping do require a current California Campfire Permit for your portable stove use. Each campsite is for a maximum of 8 people; there may be an extra charge for additional vehicles. Fire Restrictions are subject to change during the year, contact our General Forest Information line at (626) 574­5200 or access www.fs.fed.us/r5/angeles for the latest updates. You may camp 14 days at any one site on the district or for up to 30 days in the forest.

Special Notes: Contact the local Forest Service District Office for current updates on the campground you wish to visit. Also, fees are subject to change. Please call your district office or access www.recreation.gov to confirm current pricing. Please help protect the forest by checking with your local Forest Service Office for current Fire Restrictions.

Stream and lake water on the forest is not recommended for drinking. However, if you find it necessary, boil all stream or lake water for at least five minutes. Portable filtration units (0.2 microns) may be used.

Always bring your own drinking water, even to the campgrounds that state they provide piped water. There is no guarantee that water will be available at the campgrounds. Severe drought or extremely low water levels may cause the water systems to cease working.
