This is a peaceful campground tucked into the hills near Arrowbear Lake on the way to Children's Forest and Keller Peak Lookout. It makes a great overnight stop when exploring the San Bernardino Mountains. Camping is free, but there are no restrooms or drinking water. Each campsite does have a picnic table and fire ring, however an updated fire restriction has forbidden fires during the summer, and any type of fire use requires a campfire permit year round.

The sites are first-come, first-served with no reservations. A maximum of eight people and two vehicles can stay at each site for up to 14 days. The sites are open in the winter even when Keller Peak road is closed, but they are only accessible by hiking or skiing.

​Note: For more information call the San Bernardino National Forest Ranger Station at 909.382.2600.
