Mountain Oak Campground


Escape to Mountain Oak Campground in the Angeles National Forest for a restful, refreshing getaway from city life. Just northwest of the Los Angeles metro area, Mountain Oak provides a scenic and relaxing destination for camping, hiking, picnicking and wildlife viewing.


Facilities

The single-loop campground provides lots of shade from towering trees but minimal privacy from neighboring campgrounds. Ground cover is mostly pine needles and leaves. Bear-proof food containers are provided at each campground and amenities include picnic table, grills and flush toilets. Drinking water is also available. A camp host is on-site, offering firewood for sale.

Nearby attractions

The Angeles Crest Highway, part of California State Route 2, is a scenic byway that meanders through oak thickets, chaparral, high desert landscapes and pine tree forests.

Natural feaures

At an elevation of 6,400 feet, Mountain Oak is shaded by oak, ponderosa and sugar pines in the Angeles National Forest. This forest, spanning across most of the San Gabriel Mountains, provides a striking backdrop for the Los Angeles area. Jackson Lake spans just 3 acres and lies in the San Gabriel Mountains. Formed by the San Andreas fault, the lake is primarily fed by snow runoff from the mountains and is hugged by grass and sand beaches. The lake is ideal for listening to nature's soundtrack, complete with sounds of birds singing and leaves rustling in mountain breezes. A diverse variety of animal life exists in Angeles National Forest, such as bobcat, mountain lion, bear and Nelson bighorn sheep. Many species of birds and smaller animals also inhabit the forest.

Recreation

Swim or canoe in the refreshing waters of Jackson Lake, the only lake near Wrightwood. The lake is stocked with trout and bluegills. Powerboating is not permitted in the lake, so the setting is peaceful and quiet. Hikers can find trails near the campground.

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
