Hanna Flat Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” is a good motto for campers coming to Big Bear Lake on holiday weekends, but during midweek or off-season, the north shore is downright civilized. It’s a beautiful place, and the rangers and civilians are genuinely friendly. Hanna Flat Campground features good tent camping.

The sites are set in stands of Jeffrey pine and spaced nicely to allow vistas of pine-covered and rocky hills with the blue-sky, big-country look. Manzanita grows under the pines, and there’s a mild riparian community by the cut along the campground. Best of all, the sites are engineered to give campers maximum privacy and space. Each site has an abundance of flat, spongy, and pine-needled ground."

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.
