Bubba our cat

EMERGENCY: Our campgrounds cat Bubba has gone missing and has probably been taken down the mountain.

Bubba is a family member to all of the hikers, bicycle riders, fire fighters, forestry people, and everyone else who visits the campgrounds and we need our family member returned to us. :(

It is with great sorrow that we ask that who ever might have taken our campground cat possibly thinking he was abandoned, and contact us at 626-910-1028 as soon as possible, and we will arrange to take our community cat back, possibly even reimbursing you for any expenses you might have had if you took our cat in good faith.

Bubba is family and we miss him.

Crystal Lake

Highway 39 is open all the way to Crystal Lake!

Currently over night camping at Crystal Lake is OPEN! in Loops A, B, C, and G. There are many other camp sites located within the campgrounds however they have not been cleared of brush so people are being asked to not used the closed camp sites.

The lake water level is extremely low and there is no swimming allowed in the lake due to health issues -- health issues with people and with the forest itself -- however the lake does get stocked with fish from time to time.

Current fire danger: VERY HIGH
