Hanna Flat Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Abandon hope all ye who enter here” is a good motto for campers coming to Big Bear Lake on holiday weekends, but during mid-week or off-season, the north shore is downright civilized. It’s a beautiful place, and the rangers and civilians are genuinely friendly."
--Jane & Hans Huber with Bill Mai, The Best In Tent Camping: Southern California (Menasha Ridge Press).
My girlfriend and I were looking for a car camping experience that still had a feeling of being remote and in the wilderness. We both loved Laguna Campground. We went during the week so the grounds were mostly empty so that helped but I think even in a busy weekend, the location would have given us a sense of serenity. The layout of the loops to choose different sites was good in creating some more remote sites and facilities were always close by. The star is the meadow and the trails nearby the campground. We took a 3 hour hike along the meadow trails and were blown away by the scenery. It was a great experience. We went in June and everything was in bloom and the temps were perfect. In Summer I imagine it would be hot and cold in Winter but for Spring camping it was incredible. Recommend week day camping to avoid crowds as this is known as a popular campground.
