I stayed in campsite #3 and it was awesome!!! Beautiful views, lots of shade. A bit of a drive down the road from sites 1&2 and 4&5. #6 was at the trailhead for Fuller Ridge (PCT). I was there mid week and only saw 2 other vehicles. It’s a solid 30-45 min drive down a high clearance 4WD road. I wouldn’t attempt this road in a sedan. There is a picnic table and campfire ring at each site. (Currently there is a fire ban 8/25/21). I would def stay here again! It felt a world away from the inland empire.

Overall Rating

Black mountain bouldering free camping. No bathroom, closest bathroom is Boulder basin. Probably 10-15 spots to camp, pretty close to one another. Had maybe 1 bar with Verizon. It fills up quickly during the day because it is also used as a climbing access parking lot. Was able to get there in my Focus, slowly. Pack in, pack out.
