Chilao Campground is located off Highway 2 (the Angeles Crest Highway) near Three Points in the Angeles National Forest. The area is popular for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. A number of trails in the area offer great opportunities for exploring the San Gabriel Mountains. The popular Chilao Visitor Center is 1½ miles away (less than a mile by trail).
Chilao Campground offers 83 first come, first served campsites in a sparsely forested area. Much of the nearby forest was burned in the 2009 Station Fire. The campsites are arranged in two loops - Manzanita and Little Pines. Views are nice from the campground, but the site can become windy in the afternoons. The campground can fill up on weekends, but mid-week there is usually plenty of space. The vault toilets consistently receive poor reviews for cleanliness. There is also a Group Site that will accommodate from 20 to 50 people.
