Chuchupate Campground

Los Pandres National Forest | Mt. Pinos, CA

When you need to beat the summer heat, escape to Chuchupate Campground, near Tejon Pass. This primitive-style campground is just north of Los Angeles, yet light years from city life. Who needs a cell phone or laptop when you’ve got miles of wilderness to hike by day and a tapestry of stars to gaze at by night. Up for a day trip? Hike the Frazier Mountain Trail, accessed from the campground, accompanied by panoramic views of Lockwood Valley. Or rev up for miles of off-roading (OHV) adventures, reached from your campsite. At an elevation of 6,300 Chuchupate Campground stays cool, making this “retreat from the heat” a summertime oasis.


• 29 primitive sites for tent and RV camping
• Picnic tables, fire pits, grills/fire rings
• Hiking, mountain biking, and off-roading trails
