    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.
