Shady Cove Camping June 23-25

Shady Cove Camping Trip June 2023

Sign-up Flyer

Signups for SAGA’s Early Summer Campout, June 23 – 25, 2023 at the Shady Cove Group Campground are now open. The trip is a joint venture with LA and San Diego SAGA, so it promises to be festive as usual, and it will be liberating to get outdoors in the Mountains again.

Now about the trip. Shady Cove Group campsite is located at 7300 feet near Keller Peak and lookout, in the San Bernardino National Forest, not far from Running Springs. The campsite is actually located near the top of Snow Valley Ski Resort, which you pass on your way to Big Bear. One group usually hikes through the Ski Area to the top  at Slide Peak, then to the Fire Lookout tower on nearby Keller Peak. From here you get a view of much of Southern California,  all the way to Catalina Island if it is clear. There are many other hikes in the area, or you can visit the unique mountain towns of Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead.

As you know, SAGA rents group campsites to provide privacy, and collects a single fee to cover the costs of the campsite, food and beverages. These funds are then used to reimburse those who purchase supplies for the trip. The cost for the weekend is a low $98. You do not have to be a member of SAGA LA or SAGA San Diego but you must sign the waiver on the signup form to participate. Driving directions to the camp and a list of campers and their assignments will be e-mailed to all participants just prior to the trip.

Additional details of the trip are on the a two page information flyer and signup form here.

We hope you can join us on our 89th campout over the past 40 + years! If you have any questions, let me know.Ken SlaterSAGA
