Forest Route 3N97

Overview

Ironwood Group Campground offers a secluded place for an extended family or large group getaway in the mountains of Southern California. A variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, including hiking, mountain biking, target shooting, fishing and boating, can be found in the surrounding area.

Recreation

The campground is not far from the Big Pine Flat Recreational Shooting Range, where designated target shooting is available. A variety of hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking trails are in the area.

Fishing and boating at nearby Big Bear Lake are also popular activities. Anglers can look forward to a catch of trout, bluegill, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass. Because of cold water temperatures and the presence of underwater obstacles near the shorelines, swimming at the lake is somewhat discouraged, unless done in designated areas.

Vault toilets are provided, but hookups and drinking water are not available. The parking surface within the campground is gravel.
