On our way to Mount Wilson we stopped for a soft drink at the ranger station. Very nice campground. If you are in shape the hike from Eaton Canyon is not too bad. We continued to the top and explored the observatories on Mount Wilson....More

My review is for the hike leading up to the campground from eaton canyon. It's a beautiful hike with spectacular views. Finally you are rewarded with an amazing view of the pasadena area and on clear days all of los angeles.

I have actually never camped there, just hiked up in the morning, relaxed in the campground area and enjoyed the stunning overlooks, then hiked down. It is clean, well kept, and beautiful.

The Forestry Service should be commended how they run this place, each year we take about 30 JROTC cadets up and assist in planting trees, and camping. We receive the Red carpet treatment every time and always build a great relationship with the Forest Rangers....More
