Buckhorn Campground

A hunting camp back in the 1930s, Buckhorn is easily the most beautiful campsite in Angeles National Forest.

It's unusually damp, so the vegetation is lusher and there are even ferns. The dampness is due to a nearby stream that can be heard chuckling and gurgling.

It's an all-day or overnight campsite you have to pay to use, except for one dead end where you can park for free -- that leads to a trail. Walking the trail, which descends steeply, you can see many incense cedars which can easily be mistaken for young sequoias.

It's around 7,000 feet in elevation, so it gets cold at night even in summer.
