CAMPGROUND NAME: Crystal Lake VISIT DATE: 06/21/2002 UPDATE DATE: 3/6/14 STATE: California REGION: Pacific Southwest RANGER DISTRICT: San Gabriel River NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Azusa RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: From Azusa, CA, take State Rt. 39 (San Gabriel Cyn Rd) north 20.1 miles to campground sign. Turn right at sign and go 1 mile to campground. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 5,800 ft. The campground is composed of eight loops - A through H. Loops F,G, and H (closed and appear unused) and a group loop are not included in this survey. Loops A through D are closest to the visitor center and located in a fairly level but rocky area. Jeffrey and Sugar pine and Incense cedar provide shade to these loops. The camp sites in Loop F are terraced and a few big old oaks shade the area. This loop is the most RV friendly. The campground and immediate area has an interesting history going back to the 1860s when an abundance of grizzly bears, mountain lions, and deer were reported. In 1928, the LA County Board of Supervisors leased the area from the Forest Service and developed recreational opportunities, including the campground, which became available to the public in 1932. Crystal Lake became an immediate success. WWII, however, slowed visits and the county requested the Forest Service take over the park, which was formalized in 1943. The Forest Service re-opened the area in 1946. The visitor center, open since 1934, is a place to visit along with the store built by the county. Happily, the store, Crystal Lake Cafe and Trading Post is open and offers limited supplies for campers and a cook's nite-out.
