Davey Brown Campground

DAVY BROWN CAMPGROUND

Cradled in the beautiful Sunset Valley of Los Padres National Forest, along the serene and peaceful Davy Brown Creek, sets Davy Brown Campground.  Davy Brown Campground is the home of 13 scenic and picturesque campsites. The soothing sounds of the running creek can be heard from all campsites, making this campground a favorite for those planning a tranquil and relaxing get-away.  Each campsite is equipped with fire rings, pedestal barbeques and a picnic table along with two sets of vault bathrooms (wheelchair accessible) spaced strategically throughout the campground.  Davy Brown Campground can accommodate up to 25-foot trailers and RVs, although hook-ups are not available.Three dumpsters are located on Figueroa Mountain Road for convenient trash disposal, although none are available at this site.

As of March 1, 2013, Fishing is NOT allowed in the Davy Brown Creek. On hot summer days, the creek provides relief as visitors bask in the water holes located along the creek.  It is also a birders delight as it houses such birds as king-fishers, juncos, stellar jays, white-breasted nuthatches, warblers and many more. Migrating birds, such as the exquisite western tanager are often seen from spring to August.  Davy Brown Campground is the starting point for several trails, including the spectacular Davy Brown Trail/Fir Canyon Trail. Two miles further are the Lower Manzana and Upper Manzana Trailheads, entry points to the majestic San Rafael Wilderness.  From mid-August to late September, this campground is very popular with hunters during the annual deer season. Hot summer months also bring out gnats and deer flies, so don’t forget your insect repellant. Potable water is not available.

**Starting November 1, 2016, Davy Brown Campground will no longer be an Adventure Pass Campground. This campground will be concession-managed by the Parks Management Company for the Forest Service.
