I like railroads and watching the adjacent railway action on the BNSF Cajon Subdivision is one of the great attributes of this park.

I wrote the San Bernardino Parks and Recreation Department... More

Nice sites, plenty of shade, and centrally located to go into town if needed. A nice get-a-way if you don't want to drive... More

Lots of space, quiet, nice scenery. I'd rather stay here than Silverwood. Nice rangers and no one bothers you. Clean bathrooms, hook-ups.

It is the cleanest campground ever! It even has showers! Beautiful view of the Mountains, close to Silverwood Lake, Hesperia Lakes, several hiking trails near by. Big night skies... quiet! I loved it!
