San Gorgonio can be found roughly 30 miles outside of San Bernardino, California and is a great campground for individuals looking to do some nature spotting or intercounty hiking.
There are 54 total sites inside of San Gorgonio, all of which provide standard camping amenities like a picnic table and fire ring. No electrical hookups are found here, nor are there any dump stations if you decide to come in an RV or pop-up trailer. Potable water sources are located just outside of the public shower and restroom facilities. Double-sized and group sites are available for $58 a night, with a $4 surcharge if you're staying during the holidays. A $2 holiday surcharge also exists for the standard single sites, so make sure to call in advance to verify the cost of your stay. Canines can spend the evening in San Gorgonio along with their humans, as long as owners keep them on a short leash and out of any indoor public facilities.
Hikers will enjoy San Gorgonio's access to the nationally renowned Santa Ana River Trail. While currently still being completed, existing portions of the trail are open for guests to catch a glimpse or two of the nearby Pacific Ocean. Also available here is the entrance to the Rio Monte Trail, which brings visitors around the Rio Monte Panorama overlooking the Santa Ana River Valley. Both of these trails provide a great experience for dogs, as long as visiting canines are cleaned up after and kept on a restraint no longer than 6 feet in length.
Fishers visiting San Gorgonio tend to frequent the surrounding mountain streams, trying their luck at the rainbow trout that are regularly stocked by the California Department of Fish and Game. If you've got fishing on your mind and are planning a trip, make sure to bring all necessary gear as no bait or sporting goods facilities are available here.
Visitors to San Gorgonio should keep in mind that none of the surrounding parks, forests, and other recreational opportunities are counted in the camp admission prices listed here.
