Sturtevant Camp Is A Magical Waterfall Campground In Southern California

When was the last time you took a break from everyday life and went off the grid – like really off the grid? If an utterly peaceful stay is what you’re after, Sturtevant Camp is an ideal destination. Established in 1893, Sturtevant Camp is managed by the Sturtevant Conservancy and run by volunteers, with owner Deb Burgess at the wheel. The only way to access this hidden gem of a campground is to follow a 4.25-mile hiking trail to Big Santa Anita Canyon in Los Angeles National Forest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Prepare to be completely off-grid during your stay. Although there are generator-powered lights, the cabins don’t have electrical outlets and you won’t find cell phone service or wi-fi in the immediate area. Once you arrive, though, you’ll likely be so enamored of the lovely setting that you won’t miss the outside world at all. Keep in mind that the campground is hike-in/hike-out only, so be ready for a bit of a trek when you arrive and again when you leave.
