Overview

The 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.

Recreation

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.
In addition to touring the campground's three historic cabins, the campground also offers access to mountain stream fishing and bird and wildlife viewing. The San Gorgonio Wilderness is vast and offers a variety of trailheads and points of exploration.

Facilities

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 site is equipped with multiple tables, a campfire circle and grills. Vault toilets are provided. Parking is available within the campground and on the adjacent roadway. Camping is prohibited within the log cabins and campfires must be kept outside of the buildings.

Natural Features

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.

Nearby Attractions

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.
