Overview

Overview

Groups of all types will enjoy staying at the Bandido Group Campground, which boasts beautiful scenery in a relaxing, rustic atmosphere. The site accommodates groups of up to 150 campers, but is designed for equestrian campers and provides several horse corrals and hitch racks.

Bandido is divided into five campsites, each with varying capacities for smaller groups. Site #1 has a capacity of 12 campers. Site #2 can accommodate 60 campers. Site #3 and #5 can each hold a maximum of 30 campers. Site #4 has a capacity of 18 campers.

The California condor, a federally endangered species, inhabits the area. Other local wildlife includes the arroyo toad, mountain yellow-legged frog and the mountain lion.

Natural Features:

The campground sits at an elevation of 5,840 feet, surrounded by Jeffery pines, scrub oaks and manzanita. Angeles National Forest spans 694,187 acres over most of the San Gabriel Mountain range in southern California. Elevations here range from 1,200 to 10,000 feet, from the low canyon lands to the snow-capped mountain peaks.

Recreation:

Several trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding can be accessed from the campground. This includes a connector trail to the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). The PCT stretches from Mexico all the way north to Canada. Within the Angeles Forest, the impressive trail covers 176 miles of its lengthy journey.

Facilities:

No water or electricity is available. There are 25 picnic tables, community fire rings, pit toilets and 20 horse corrals. The site also boasts paved roads and space to park trailers.

Nearby Attractions:

Drive the Angeles Crest Highway, a scenic byway that meanders through oak thickets, chaparral, high desert landscapes and pine tree forests.
