Tahquitz Family Campgrounds

Reserve your family campground at Tahquitz. You and your family can set up your own tent, bring your own food, camp overnight, go hiking, and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Choose your nights, let us know how many people are coming, and you’re all set to go!

Bulletin Guidelines

Phase 2 – Program Coming Soon!

To give units that summer camping experience, when allowed, units will be able to reserve a campsite and bring their own food to cook in their site. When permissible, we plan on offering limited programming where recommended distancing measures can be maintained. This may include program areas such as archery, bb gun, handicraft, nature center, and the pool.
