Burnt Rancheria Campground
Burnt Rancheria Campground is in the Mount Laguna area of Cleveland National Forest. The campground is set amidst a forest of pines and oaks. Children's activities and evening campfire programs in the summer make it a popular spot for families. The campground is high enough to offer cooler temperatures than in surrounding desert areas.
Burnt Rancheria Campground features 123 campsites. Eight of the sites are for tents only. The remainder can accommodate RVS, trailers, and tents. Reservations can be made for specific sites for about half the campsites. For other reservations, called Management, specific sites are assigned upon arrival. Some sites are available first-come, first served.
The Pacific Crest Trail passes near the campground and many hikers choose to camp overnight at Burnt Rancheria, using the opportunity to resupply, take showers, and pick up mail. (Use the PCT button to find information about the Pacific Crest Trail at Burnt Rancheria Campground.)
