“Small campground up on the mountain”
Reviewed Sep 07, 2017
The actual Mt Ashland campground is hard to get a RV into. There is a small parking area by the vault toilets about 50 feet long on a narrow mountain road. I parked there for a few days because I thought that was the only legal parking. After talking to a Ranger he told me I was allowed to park in the large pull out areas just down the road. The pull out area is huge and can fit any size rig and easy to turn around. Once you hit the dirt road turning around a RV our size is not so easy, at least not for a couple miles.
It is a pretty area with plenty to do. There are a lot of hiking trails, including the PCT, right on top of the mountain. There are some mountain biking trails as well. The drive to Ashland takes about 25 minutes if you need supplies.
Cell coverage works pretty good, and this is a fairly busy area. When I was here there were fires all thru the valley so a lot of people came up the mountain to get away from the smoke. It was also a holiday weekend. I would say a least 50 cars a day pass thru the area.
There are vault toilets that are disgusting, a few picnic tables and fire rings. No trash bins, which they need, or water... But if your in the know you can use the Mt Ashland Ski area bathroom and even get hot water from the sink. There is also a drinking fountain there.
