The center of activities for the campgrounds is the Barton Flats Visitor Center, which serves up to 10,000 visitors every summer. Here, informal programs are presented with display animals from the San Bernardino County Museum. San Gorgonio Wilderness Association (SGWA) volunteer members develop and present these programs, with added nature walks during the busy summer weekends.

Be sure to come by and visit the annual Forest Festival held in mid-August!
