Additional Campsites to become Reservable

To better serve campers and their families, additional Los Padres campsites managed under concession by Parks Management Company (PMC) will become available for the public to reserve through the National Recreation Reservation System (NRRS) beginning May 1, 2018.

 The Los Padres National Forest offers a total of 869 campsites for our visitors to enjoy and now 548 of those are reservable, allowing campers a better “plan ahead” option. As always, if a campsite is not reserved, it will still be available on a ‘First Come First Served’ basis. These two options are part of our continuing commitment to better serve the public and optimize the visitor experience throughout the Los Padres National Forest. Happy Camping!!
