South Fork Campground
South Fork Campground is in the San Bernardino National Forest, 39 miles northeast of the city of San Bernardino. The campground is located off Highway 38, the Rim of the World Scenic Byway. Campers who pull into South Fork Campground are close to several good hiking trails, including the Santa Ana River Trail. Pretty little Jenks Lake is only a short drive away, offering non-motorized boating and fishing. Popular Big Bear Lake is about a half-hour drive farther up Highway 38. There, visitors enjoy boating, waterskiing, fishing, and hiking. At the Grayback Amphitheater, 2-miles west on Highway 38, the San Gorgonio Wilderness Association provides evening educational programs on most Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer months.
South Fork Campground is a first-come, first-served camping area; no reservations are available. The campground has 24 campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents. Unlike most other campgrounds in the area, South Fork has vault toilets and no showers. Nevertheless, South Fork Campground offers attractive, mostly level sites with pretty settings among mature pines.
The campground is beside the Santa Ana River near its convergence with the South Fork River.
