Manker Flats Campground is a basic, no-frills campground open seasonally about half a mile below the Ski Lodge near the top of Mount Baldy Road.

Each site shares a wide parking spot with a neighboring site, and there is not much in the way of barriers between sites. Payment is made at a self-serve pay station near the campground entrance.

Sites each contain a firepit grill and an uncovered picnic bench. Water faucets are located around the campground, and there is one bathroom building containing only flush toilets and sinks for the campground.

The benefit to staying here is that you are walking distance from the Falls Road trailhead, where trails to San Antonio Falls along with the Ski Hut and Devil's Backbone trails to Mt Baldy Summit begin. 

The campground is open seasonally based on current conditions. Call the Mount Baldy Visitor Center for more information and specific pricing (909.982.2829).

The campground has no store or services, and aside from a bar, there are next to no services in Mt Baldy Village. Plan to bring anything up with you before driving up the mountain. Adventure Passes are sold at the Mount Baldy Visitor Center, however, they keep unreliable and sporadic hours. An alternative would be to purchase an Adventure Pass at Mount Baldy Trout Pools located a quarter-mile up the hill from the visitor center.
