Overview

Overview

Meadow Group Campground is located off State Highway 2 between the Manzanita Loop of the Chilao Campground and the Chilao Ranger Station, 26 miles north of the 210 Freeway in La Canada, California.

The campground offers access to a wide variety of recreational activities within the beautiful Angeles National Forest.

Natural Features:

The Meadow Group Campground is located within the Los Angeles River Ranger District, which is bordered by the Los Angeles Basin on the south, the San Gabriel Wilderness Area on the east, the San Gabriel Mountains on the north, and the junction of Interstate 5 and Highway 14 on the west.

The campground is at an elevation of 5,300 feet amid Coulter pines, scrub oaks and grasslands. Visitors might see birds and squirrels along the nature trails, and the area is particularly known for its variety of woodpeckers.

Recreation:

This campground is a quarter-mile from the San Gabriel Wilderness, with hiking, biking and equestrian trails.

The Chilao Visitor Center is located 1.5 miles north of the campground. It offers exhibits and information about the area, campfire programs and excellent bird watching opportunities, including ten species of woodpeckers.

Facilities:

The campground will accommodate two groups. Area 1 accommodates up to 24 people and has three picnic tables and fire rings, and one water spigot. Area 2 can accommodate up to 80 people and has ten picnic tables and fire rings, and one water spigot.

Flush toilets are available, but are shared by both groups.

Nearby Attractions:

State Route 2, the Angeles Crest Scenic Byway, is a National Forest Scenic Highway. The highway, as it winds along the San Gabriel Mountains, offers spectacular views of nearby peaks and valleys.

Several vista points along the road offer the traveler expansive views of the Mojave Desert, the San Gabriel Mountains, and the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys.
