Pyramid Lake - Los Alamos Campground


Los Alamos Campground is located 90 minutes from Los Angeles, offering a restful experience without the lengthy travel time. Guests enjoy the beauty of the nearby Pyramid Lake at the base of mountains, and the excitement of lake activities like jet skiing and wakeboarding.


Facilities

The campground offers 90 single family sites and 3 group campsites. Each group site fits 40 guests and 10 vehicles. Volleyball courts are provided for extra camping entertainment and the area has flush toilets and fresh drinking water. Sites come with picnic tables and grills. Some parking aprons are paved, but most are sandy gravel. A dump station is available and a camp general store is also on-site. Campers here have first priority to enter Pyramid Lake, but it is recommended they arrive in line at the marina no later than 6:15 a.m.

Nearby attractions

The Vista Del Lago Visitor Center offers sweeping views of Pyramid Lake on its wraparound viewing platform. It also provides a giant map room with intriguing facts about California's geology and water supply systems. The Hungry Valley Off-Road State Vehicular Recreation Area is just minutes away, offering opportunities for off-road vehicle riding.

Natural feaures

Campsites are set back away from Pyramid Lake in the hills above the Santa Clarita Valley. The campsites are mostly open, but some trees offer limited shade to campers in Loop 3. Pyramid Lake spans 1,300 acres with 21 miles of shoreline. Pyramid Rock, the lake's namesake, is south of the lake's dam in Piru Gorge. A diverse variety of animal life exists in Angeles National Forest. Birds and squirrels are commonly seen. Other wildlife includes bobcat, mountain lion, bear and Nelson bighorn sheep.

Recreation

Visitors can view lovely wildflowers and watch for birds. Jogging, mountain biking and motorcycle riding are enjoyable activities in the area. Various festivals take place at the lake throughout the year. Anglers can find striped, large, and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, crappie and bluegill in Pyramid Lake. Boating and jet skiing are a big draw.

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.
