Marion Mountain Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"From Los Angeles, the ride to Marion Mountain Campground on I-10 through the Inland Empire (also known as the Land of Swirling Gases) is an unsightly urban metropolis that never seems to end. Persevere, though, and head up CA 243 from Banning, and, in a few short minutes, you’ll be in a diﬀerent world.
You’ll come up out of the chaparral into the pines and peaks. What a contrast! Marion Mountain Campground is as sunny and airy as nearby Dark Canyon Campground is dark and safe, down under sheltering trees. Between the two, you’ll see the entire spectrum of good San Jacinto tent camping."
