This area is Open
 

Formerly used as a family camp and a horse camp, the horse corrals are now located at the Pepperdine Equestrian Campground. The family campsites are mostly shaded and enjoy serene surroundings for an enjoyable camping experience.  The Summit Trail begins here and heads south into the South Warner Wilderness.  No wilderness permits are required however, if you plan to use a camp or backpack stove or charcoal barbeque or have a campfire outside the developed campground, you will need a current California Campfire Permit.
