This charming, dog-friendly campground is cradled in the beautiful Sunset Valley on the lovely Figueroa Mountain. The campground is near to Santa Barbara, promising the most serene camping in the Los Padres National Forest. You can catch the soothing sound of the creek from every campsite here.
There are 13 scenic campsites at the Davy Brown Campground, each one containing a picnic table, pedestal barbeques, and fire rings. Two sets of wheelchair-accessible vault bathrooms are conveniently placed across the campground. The campground can house RVs and trailers up to 25-feet long, but there are no hookups. The Figueroa Mountain Road has 3 dumpsters, making it easy for you to dispose of trash. Make sure to pack poop bags and clean up after Fido. Drinking water is not available, so bring lots of your own.
Mountains covered by blue, valley, and live oaks, along with gray pine surround the campground. The creek provides small waterfalls and refreshing swimming holes – ideal for a splash on those hot, summer days. There are plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails as well. From August till the end of September, the campground attracts a lot of hunters for the deer season. While you can access the campground through mostly paved roads, we advise against using Happy Canyon Road if you have a large trailer or motorhome. Also, remember that fishing is not allowed in the Davy Brown Creek.
The campground serves as the starting point for numerous trails, including the amazing Davy Brown Trail/Fir Canyon Trail. When visiting during summer, make sure to pack insect repellant to ward off the deer flies and gnats coming out during this time. Home to juncos, king-fishers, stellar jays, and many more, the campground is also a delight for birders. Overall, Davy Brown Campground is perfect for those seeking a serene and soothing getaway. You and Fido can have a nice time here in every season.
