    We stayed at this campground in March 2014. Bathrooms were fairly clean – vault toilet and no sink so bring wet wipes or sanitizer! However there is a faucet that has running water next to the vault toilet. Camp sites were spaced far apart, some nice trails nearby. You can reserve online, and there were no firewood restrictions at the time I can (but be mindful of what you bring in anyway). Overall I do recommend this campground, unless you like flush toilets, showers, etc – then you will want to stay at the nearby Palomar Observatory campground, which has these amenities.

    The Camp Ground is great but during hunting season– to many people go up there and ruin the hunt for hunters. They’re rude and talking their little hikes and it literally pisses you off to no end. Have some respect, we pay to use the land just like you, other than that the place is great!
