Even top rated providers of Los Angeles limos get asked “What are the best campgrounds in LA?” And as our limo service has transferred countless campers to campgrounds in and around Los Angeles, our service also knows a thing or two about camping in the area. Whether to combine Malibu wine tours with an overnight camp at the beach, or an LA limousine ride to the campgrounds of Angeles Forest, trust us to get you there in comfortable style. Besides stylish limousines, we also have a large fleet of SUVs, sedans and party buses. Let our limousine service present our tips for “Best Camping in Los Angeles County”!
You have many options for beach camping in LA County. Not necessarily the most scenic, nonetheless, Leo Carrillo State Beach might be the most popular camping destination for limos. Situated on the opposite side of the PCH from the beach itself, Leo Carrillo Campground offers free WiFi and is within walking distance of convenience stores. The most scenic beach camp in Malibu however may be Thornhill Broome Beach State Park. Here you can camp right in the sand dunes in front of the waves and fall asleep with an ocean view while waking up to the sights of dolphins. Another limo favorite is Malibu’s Sycamore Canyon Campground, which also sits on the opposite side of the freeway. Want to combine a Malibu wine-tasting tour with a campout at the beach? Try Topanga State Beach, which can be visited by a pathway leading from a popular wine-tasting venue, namely Rosenthal Wine Bar! Another great pick for beach camping is Dockweiler State Beach by LAX.
Mountain & Forest Camping
Some of the best campgrounds can be found in the inland parts of the county. Our favorites include Buckhorn Campground, Meadow Group Campground, Manker Flats Campground, Table Mountain Campground, and Horse Flats Campground. All of these are located in the city’s own backyard national forest, Angeles National Forest. Closer to town, Henninger Flats by Pasadena offers breathtaking views of Los Angeles and the Channel Islands. We have even transferred tourists with limo in Los Angeles to campgrounds such as Buckhorn- and Table Mountain Campgrounds. Buckhorn has a creek where fishing is permitted, and many come here for skiing during winter. At an elevation of over 7,200 ft., Table Mountain keeps closed during winter but opens again during spring. The campground is located in a palm tree forest and offers great panoramic views of the Mojave Desert. The lower Horse Flats Campground (5,000 ft.) sits next to Mt. Hillyer and offers a truly secluded forest campout.
Prefer a mountain with a lower elevation? In the Malibu wine country of the Santa Monica Mountains is where we find Malibu Creek Campground.
There are primarily two lakes in the county visited by limousine services for camping. Crystal Lake in the Angeles Forest, and Castaic Lake, by far the largest lake in Los Angeles County. A third alternative is Lake Campground by Jackson Lake. Fishing is permitted in all three lakes, but motorized boats are only allowed in Castaic Lake. Crystal Lake sits at an idyllic 5,800 ft. elevation and offers great opportunities for hiking and picnicking. Swimming, waterskiing and boating are popular activities by Castaic Lake. While a large variety of freshwater fish can be caught in Castaic Lake, Crystal Lake is known for its great trouts. Some of the fish that can be seen in Jackson Lake include trouts, sunfish, bluegill and bass. While there are 60 campsites at Castaic Lake State Recreation Area, there are 180 by Crystal Lake. Lake Campground by Jackson Lake has only 8 campsites. Reserving your site before arrival is therefore highly recommended.
