The campground has a “Q” configuration with camp sites on top of the letter having a delightful vista while sites on either side have tower boulders for a backdrop. Magnificent Ponderosa and Sugar pines and other conifers are found throughout the campground. This is a campground for hikers, mountain bikers, bouldering enthusiasts, and anyone looking for quiet and solitude – well worth the challenge of the road to the campground. The Black Mountain Lookout Tower is accessed via a trail from campground and offers breathtaking views of the area. The ground cover throughout the campground is pine needles and various size pine cones. Privacy between camp sites is fair.

    I’ve been camping at Boulder basin for 28 years I love it there, the view is incredible and hiking is the best, it’s the best thing in Southern California, when I want to get away its close and secluded,and it feels like I’m in the mountains with the beautiful pine trees. I’ll continue to camp there as long as I am alive.

Directions:

Take Highway 243 north out our Idyllwild for 8.1 miles to the turn-off of Black Mountain Road (Forest Road 4S01). This dirt road climbs through a forest of oak and pine. After the Boulder Basin Campground, make a sharp left turn and drive a half-mile to the end of the road (5.8 miles from the highway). Walk the last quarter-mile and then take the paved walkway to the lookout.
