Nice, old campground located in the southern end of the Los Padres National Forest. What is nice is that you are camping under some very large and old California oaks. Shady and with a “playable” stream right down the center. The downsides: Nats. Tons and tons of them! Also, some yellow jackets. We had a screen tent and that was a help, but there really was quite a few to battle with. Also, due to fire restrictions, there are NO campfires allowed, and NO BBQ's with charcoal and lighter fluid. NONE. Not much of a problem if you plan for it. Of course, a fire would have been nice to smoke the nats away. This was a totally dry campground. No water to drink and no dump station. We brought an extra 6 gal of water along with the 13 gal or so that the Tardis holds and we had plenty. Of course, we did not shower and just sort of washed up, but that was more a concern of our gray water tank than of running out of fresh water. All and all, a good place to visit in the fall, but it looks like it would be unpleasant during the summer. Also, there was word that during the summer, the locals come up and party in large numbers. So, if you go..bring water, and a screen tent. We camped at Wheeler Gorge in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here over the MLK weekend and practically had the place to ourselves. We parked overlooking a lovely waterfall and meandering creek. The lack of electricity provided us with a wonderful opportunity to view the night sky and enjoy the quiet around us. The park host was very helpful in finding the best site for our rear view lounge and came back later to make sure we were settled. The abundance of rocks to pitch into the creek should keep children busy for some time. The creek is shallow and would invite wading in a warmer season. I felt this park was the best value in our eight weeks of travel. We camped at Wheeler Gorge in a Fifth Wheel.
