Malibu Creek State Park, Calabasas, California

                                                        

This campground is nestled in the shrubbery and oaks along Malibu Canyon Road in the Santa Monica Mountain Range. The campground is not set along the creek, but hiking trails from camp lead you alongside it. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders all share a wide, easy to walk path along the creek which eventually leads you to a large cliff where you'll often view mountain climbers and just opposite is a small pond which sometimes is used as a swimming hole. Also within hiking or biking distance is the set of MASH which still has remnants from the set standing today. A visitor's center is available where you can find out
more information about the various uses of the land over time, many of which include filmings of some fairly popular productions. Some sites back at camp are more grassy and barren, while others are shaded by oaks. It is tight maneuvering through the camp. Large boulders have been placed alongside the campground roads which makes backing in and some turns a bit hairy for rigs longer than 30 feet, so definitely heed the rig length restrictions here! Most sites are fairly unlevel, causing leveling issues for us during our stay. All sites offer paved pads, a fire pit, picnic table, and space between neighbors. There are often no wood fires allowed here in summer months due to the high fire danger.
