Take a vacation in the San Bernardino National Forest at Grays Peak Group Camp. This facility has room for up to eight vehicles and 40 people. You can bring tents or RVs, but there are no hook-ups here. There's no running water or garbage pick-up, so you'll need to pack in all your supplies and pack out all your waste. Once you set up your base, there are trails that you can explore. Pit toilets are available on site. The camping fee is $132 per night most times and $142 per night on holidays. Obtain a campfire permit before you come here.
The campground sits in a bare area due to recent forest fires. Despite the barren setting, this site has a convenient location near Big Bear Lake Recreation Area. The last few miles up to the facility are on a bumpy, dirt road. Expect slow going here. There are tables, a grill, and a fire ring at the group location. Once you're set up, head out on the trail for a hike. Enjoy the stunning beauty and the scenic vistas of the area as you travel through the wilderness. You can also head to Big Bear Lake for fishing, boating, and more. Some activities require an Adventure Pass, which you can purchase for $5 per day or $30 for the year.
You can bring Spot with you, but they'll have to stay on a leash. Never leave your special pal unattended. You're responsible for removing their waste and carrying it out with you.
When you want to get away to the mountains, come to Grays Peak Group Camp. This site offers access to some pawtastic outdoor activities. Hike in the wilderness or visit Big Bear Lake. Watch for wildlife like bald eagles, mule deer, grey foxes, and raccoons. Out here, you'll feel like you're on the rim of the world.
