Barton Flats is a great spot-- it's about half way up to Big Bear. Best news is that the sites are flat and all you have to do is buy a Wilderness Pass for 30 bucks and you can camp up there for 14 days at a time for the whole year. It's pure boondocking but there is a camp ground where you can dump and fill up with water about 3 or 4 miles away.
Mark here from last year! This summer's trip was Flagstaff, Sedona, and Grand Canyon. Early June so weather was still somewhat mild. I heartily recommend the drive to Sedona, stopping at Slide Rock. Look it up. It is a blast!
Can you give me more info on Barton Flats? I went online and it look slike it is first come first served. I would hate to haul everyting up there and get hosed!
Most of my camping is sans hook ups, so I have no problem with that.
Years ago when we had a class A we camped at Big bear. Nice.
