Wheeler Gorge campground offers a fun place for families to explore the Los Padres National Forest. The campground is located adjacent to Matilija Creek and set among a mixed forest of oak and sycamore trees. It can get quite hot here in the summer, but most sites have nice shade. The area has plenty of trails to hike and explore. Some of the campsites are located next to the creek. Each campsite has a table and fire ring. Some sits are first-come, first serve. Group camping is also available.
