Camp at Manzanita Loop in Chilao Campground

Chilao Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Sassy Resuello

Only an hour away from Los Angeles, you'll find this peaceful and scenic campsite in the mountains, called Chilao Campground. Perfect for weekend getaways!

Chilao Camp is located at an elevation of 5,300 feet, in the San Gabriel Mountains, and is divided into two different loops called the Manzanita and Pine.

This specific adventure is for the Manzanita Loop, which is pretty much known as the more scenic loop, mainly because the area overlooks the Big Tujunga Canyon. Grab a site here to get a great view of the beautiful sunset.

Daytime adventures come easily, with lots of hiking trails within the area. Visit the Chilao Visitor Center, which is only a 0.2 mile walk, to ask about nearby trails.

At night, enjoy a star-filled sky as you sit by the bonfire with family or friends.

Great!

Stayed 3 nights with a tent at the end of April. As the heat came to LA here you can still find chilling nights and evenings. At sunset we just dropped everything and froze watching - spectacular! On the weekend campground was full, but other days quiet and calm. Water was working every day whereas visitor center only sat-sun:) And the most wonderful thing - NO CELL SERVICE 20 miles around. Enjoy!
