The Boulder Basin Campground is located near Banning, California in the San Bernardino National Forest. During your stay at Boulder Basin, you'll enjoy a private and primitive camping trip with breathtaking scenery surrounding you. There are 34 campsites to choose from, and the camp is shaped like a letter Q. If you get a spot at the top of the Q, you'll be surrounded by a vista, and on the bottom of the letter, you have towering boulders behind you.
Each site at Boulder Basin can accommodate up to eight people (including children), and your dog is welcome to come along too, but they must always be attended and on a leash. Beginning in 2019, all campsites must be reserved ahead of time, and sites can accommodate RVs up to 15 feet. Your campsite comes with a table, a campfire ring, and a grill, but there are no hookups at campsites. No drinking water is available at Boulder Basin, so be sure to pack plenty for you and Daisy! You can also make the quick trip to the Cinco Posa Spring tap for drinking water.
Outdoor enthusiasts get a special thrill from staying at Boulder Basin because of all the recreational opportunities surrounding the area.
