Camp at Chilao Campground

Chilao Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Maya Daniels

First-come, first-serve mountaintop camping.

While not as popular as shady Buckhorn Campground up the road, Chilao offers the better views and greater chances of scoring a peaceful and private campsite. There are two campsites located here (and two group camps down in the valley). Sites are first come, first serve, and cost $12 (bring exact change). Firewood is easy to scavenge and the views are spectacular. This is a great spot for jumping off to day hikes or longer backpacking trips. Best of all, dog-friendly!

I love how close this is to where I live! One of my favorite camping spots in LA, which offers scenic mountain views! Perfect for a relaxing weekend.

Relaxing getaway

Been here once, and it's very relaxing. I can share some of the pictures with you, if you'd like to use them.
