Reyes Creek Campground

Los Padres National Forest

Hammock spots, dipping holes and a fishing stream make Reyes Creek Campground an ideal hideaway. Located near the Sespe Wilderness alongside Reyes Creek you will find renewal and replenishment, Reyes Creek-style.

Reyes Creek Campground has 24 generously spaced campsites, ideal for tents, pickup truck campers, small RVs or small van conversion campers. RVs over 22 ft. are not recommended. Please bring all the water you will need for your stay as there is no water available. Six vault toilets service the campground.

The road through the campground is narrow in places so RVs should be aware of obstructions and difficult angles into the campsites.
