Overview

Overview

Jackson Flats is a group camping facility located next to beautiful Grassy Hollow Visitor Center, which holds numerous nature programs, hikes and activities on Saturdays during the summer. The peaceful setting, in the Angeles National Forest, is a short drive northeast of the bustling Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Natural Features:

At an elevation 7,500 feet, Jackson Flats sits in grassy spaces among groves of pine and fir trees, with average summer daytime temperatures in the low 80s. Nights are cool.

In Angeles National Forest, vegetation ranges from chaparral and oak at lower elevations to pine forests at higher altitudes. Elevations range from 1,200 to 10,000 feet.

The endangered California condor inhabits the forest. The Least Bells vireo and the Southwestern Willow flycatcher are two migratory birds that visitors enjoy spotting in the area. Other local inhabitants include the Arroyo toad, mountain yellow-legged frog, the mountain lion and the two-striped garter snake.

Recreation:

Campers can enjoy hiking, biking and relaxing in the shade. A few short trails loop around the campground and a connector trail leads to the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail stretches from Mexico through California, Oregon and Washington.

Additionally, the Angeles National Forest boasts 557 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. All trails, excluding the Pacific Crest Trail, allow mountain biking as well.

Facilities:

Each tent-only site is located about 600 feet from the centrally-located parking area near the campground entrance. Campers must park and carry their gear to their site.

Each site is equipped with large picnic tables, a campfire circle, grills and bear-proof food storage lockers. Flush toilets and and drinking water are provided during the summer months.

Nearby Attractions:

Hop in the car and drive along the Angeles Crest Highway, a scenic route that meanders through oak thickets, chaparral, high desert landscapes and pine forests.
