“Great Campground north of Big Bear”

Reviewed May 02, 2019

Overall Rating

The campground is nestled in Holcomb Valley, where you can rock climb, trail hike, take several 4X roads, or just chill in the campground. Each of the 19 sites is no reservation (first come first served) and have picnic tables, a fire pit, and a bear box to keep food safe from the squirrels. There are 2 bathrooms for men and women, and are kept clean. Camp host sells firewood for $8 a bundle. Very quiet, especially during the week. Extra cars are $7/day, and holiday weekend rates are $25/night.

There are several roads up to the campground. Van Dusen Canyon Rd (3N09) has a bit of bumps and dips, but I brought up a 40' Class A. I wouldn't recommend anything bigger than a 34'. The other road is Polique Canyon road (2N09), but there is a HUGE dip (a washed out culvert, it looks like) between 3N12C and Holcomb Valley Rd (3N16) that will stop anything larger than a van.

Just an awesome place!
