How's the cow population there these days? Do you "notice" them much?

Mark
Yes, Mark. It's 1000 Trails. I was thinking non-members could stay there but pay market value for their site, but now that I think about it, I might just be remembering someone who was a "guest" of a member. I know at Rancho Oso near Santa Barbara, non-members can stay but pay full price.

We stayed at Wilderness Lakes in the Spring and noticed fly's (we think from the dairy). We returned in June but didn't notice them for some reason. The cows are definitely there but the cg isn't downwind, so you couldn't smell them!

Not a touristy area. It takes us 4 hours to drive down for warranty work, so we like to combine a camping trip with it and WL is just down the road. It's a nice place to relax for a few days. Our grandkids really like it there, so we will probably take them every summer now.

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.
JP,

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.

Mark
