Hi,
newbie camper here. i wanna take a short weekend to get away from this city. i was wondering if there was any forest-y campgrounds within 2-3 hours of Los Angeles. I have some friends with a tent. All we really wanna do is spend one night away, see some stars, cook some smores over a nice fire. maybe if there was a nice creek to splash in, that'd be fun.

does anyone know a place like this near LA? wooded, allows camp fires, and has passable toilets? we want to go the last weekend of June and would like to make reservations.

any tips would be great.

Welcome to our little community. Are there any "forest-y campgrounds" near LA - yes, a bunch. Take a look at the Angeles, Los Padres, and maybe San Bernadino nfs. A lot depends on where you are located. I started camping in the Los Padres NF around Frazier Park, CA - loved the Ponderosa pines, the hiking, and the night sky from there. but San Bernardino NF has some pretty outstanding campgrounds, too. You might want to look at Serrano cg as it is one of the more "developed" (meaning it has flush toilets) campgrounds in the area. However, it will probably be the most crowded. The best part is, if you don't love the campground you pick this time, there a numerous others still waiting to be tried.
