Camping Diary: Buckhorn

Buckhorn (link contains directions and site details)

Buckhorn is a great campground with plenty of sites.  It’s completely paved aprons but the sites are pretty close together.  There is a lot of sharing of noise and space!  That being said, there is a hike to Cooper Canyon falls.  When I was last there, we hiked to the falls but there wasn’t much water (and the water was FREEZING!).

On the way up to Buckhorn during dry season:

Camping Diary: Horse Flats

Horse Flats (link contains directions and site details)

I’ve been to Horse Flats campground in the Angeles National Forest a few times.  It’s a great little campground (no reservations, vault toilets, complete pack in/out).  The sites are well shaded and there is ample hiking nearby.
