Remote camping takes place outside of established campgrounds or campsites. Visitors who enjoy remote camping bring their own equipment, often seek solitude, and do not expect services such as potable water, toilets, and fire rings.
A Forest Adventure Pass or any other public lands pass accepted by the Forest Service is required for remote camping and must be displayed on your vehicle (unless vehicle is parked in a free area or on the last Saturday of every month.)
Also, due to the unsupervised nature of remote camping certain activities are often more restricted than in developed camping. Check at the nearest Ranger Station for a map with the boundaries of the Remote Camping Areas and a description of the current fire restrictions when you obtain your free fire/stove permit there. Campfires, charcoal BBQs, and remote camping itself may be restricted certain times of the year due to the Fire Danger Level. Please call the Forest Supervisor’s Office at (909) 382-2600 for the current Fire Danger Level and current restrictions.
The general rules for remote camping are to camp at least 200 feet away from springs, water, meadows, trails and forest roads. Your camp should be more than 0.25 miles away from any designated campgrounds, picnic areas, trailheads, private property, or state highways. Camp out of sight of others and do not disturb them.
