COON CREEK GROUP CAMPGROUND, CA
part ofSan Bernardino National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Sun Sep 27 2015 Season Dates
OverviewThe Coon Creek Group Campground is located in the pine-covered mountains of Southern California. The unique campground is home to three historic cabins and a stunning view into the Coachella Valley on clear days.
The campground is situated at an 8,000-foot elevation, overlooking the San Bernardino mountains. Mature pine trees dot the area, but provide little shade over the rocky terrain.
The campground is adjacent to a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, a famous hike that spans more than 2,600 miles from Canada to Mexico. The trail is available for hiking and horseback riding only and offers multiple entry and exit points along its lengthy route, making it ideal for short nature walks or day hikes.
The somewhat rustic group campground offers one large-group campsite, available for tent or RV camping. It can accommodate up to 25 people and 10 vehicles. Utility hookups are not available and parking spurs are gravel. Drinking water is also not available at the campground.
The campground is less than 20 miles away from Big Bear Lake, which offers a variety of water-related recreation opportunities. The adjoining town provides golf, shopping and restaurant options.
