Free Camping on Lytle Creek

This is a single "yellow post" campsite located along the creek side of Lytle Creek Road right at the fork with Cold Water Canyon. The campsite is long enough for full sized motorhomes and fifth-wheel trailers to get into, albeit with some skill backing into the 90-degree turn from the road.

Cold Camp, Lytle Creek, CA

This single Yellow Post Campsite offers a fair amount of privacy, though there is still considerable traffic, OHV riders, and hikers going up and down Lytle Creek Road. The road in is well-packed and suitable for any vehicle, but it’s bumpy. During heavy rains, you want to avoid driving up here because the creek will swell.

Campfires require a Calfiornia Campfire Permit which is the law all across the state. You can get one for free online just by watching a video and filling out a form at the Ready for Wildfire Website.

Cold Camp is often in use because it’s most easily accessible along Lytle Creek and the first Yellow Post Campsite you come to.
