There is plenty of tent camping space for tent campers. Generators will be onsite for power and lighting as required and picnic tables. Parking for overnight RV’s is available. Dogs permitted; but must be leased or within your tent or RV. Critters usually stay clear; but we are in Nature where they live! Temperatures can range from 55 to 75, lower or higher depending on sun and wind conditions; so, plan clothing for a range of temperatures, a hat, sun screen and insect repellent recommended.

The following are driving instructions as given by our Site Host:

  • If you use GPS, Use the address 22354 Mojave River Road, Cedarpines Park, CA 92322.
  • Coming from San Bernardino, CA head up Waterman Avenue heading North. North of 40th street Waterman Avenue becomes Hwy 18, a 2-lane Hwy each way with center guard rails. Continue up Hwy 18 to the Crestline Cut-off exit. If you go straight here it takes you to Arrowhead.
  • Follow the Crestline Cut-off around to “Top Town” Stop sign at Crest Forest. This is actually a 5-way intersection. You are at a Stop sign, traffic to your Left and Right has a Stop sign but oncoming traffic from two street feed points does not have to Stop. Please look at least 3-times!
  • Turn Left on to Crest Forest. Follow Crest Forest, DO NOT GET OFF CREST FOREST.
  • You will drop down into the town of Cedarpines Park. There will be Cedarpines Park Water Company, a small Fire House and the VFW on your left. Keep going forward. Ahead you will see a “Y” intersection.
  • Follow Crest Forest back up the hill, bearing left at the “Y up the hill.
  • Follow Crest Forest back up the hill to Mojave River Road. Go Right.
  • Mojave River Road will fork off half way down …. STAY TO THE RIGHT. Do not go straight.
  • You will run out of houses and as you go through the National Forest, you are not lost. Keep going.
  • Once you start coming back to homes, Just Stay Straight.  As the road curves to the Left, you will see a Big Pavilion in front of you.

                                               You have arrived!
