Just above Crystal Lake lies Little Jimmy trail camp. A backcountry hike-in only campground nestled just 2 miles off the Angeles Crest Highway. It features 7 first-come, first-served sites with fire rings, vault toilets, and vintage backcountry ovens. After parking your vehicle at Islip Saddle, cross the highway and begin hiking for 2 miles up the switchbacks until you reach Little Jimmy Campground on your right.

Popular with Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, this scenic spot offers a chance to get away from established campgrounds and live amongst the Coulter Pines and Big Doug Firs. Campers turned hikers have easy access to hop on the legendary Pacific Crest Trail which runs through the camp. 

There is no fee to camp here other than an Adventure pass for your parking. In the summertime, bears can be common visitors, so it please secure your food in provided bear boxes or bring your own bear canisters. As always, make sure you follow the "Leave No Trace" principles and pack everything in and out!
