  Access: Take Hwy 2 about 5 miles west of Wrightwood. Turn west on Big Pines Hwy. Go 2 miles, campground is on south side of the road.  
  Facilities: 8 sites, Drinking water, restrooms, picnic table and fire rings.  
  Season: Open all year, but access may be restricted due to winter snow and summer brushfires.  
  Fees: No fee, Adventure Pass required. First come, first serve.  
  Nearby Hiking Trails: To the south is a trail to Grassy Hollow, and intersects the Pacific Crest Trail.  
  Nearby 4x4 Trails: 4N06, a bit northwest of the campground, runs north down mescal creek. Most of the other dirt roads in the area lead to private campgrounds.  
  Comments: I'd advise you to bring your own water, as the available water here often seems to be shut off. Arriving late and find the campground full? Lake and Mountain Oak campgrounds are all located within a mile. In the winter, this is a terrific snow play area.
