Celebrate Fall. It's apple harvest time! Oak Glen is known for its historic apple orchards that produce incredible harvests and is an absolute delight to visit in the fall with beautiful farm country alive with autumn colors. Oak Glen goes all out for its festivals, and it feels like the entire town is one big fairground! Nestled mile-high in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains,  lies the Wildlands Conservancy’s Oak Glen Preserve. The  preserve is home to the Conservancy’s Southern California Montane Botanic Garden, Los Rios Rancho and apple orchards, and nature preserve trails.

Our campground is located in the village of Oak Glen and adjacent to The Oak Glen Preserve.  RV sites are pull through, 30 AMP hookup and are located across from the tent sites. There will be 2 tents per site and will not share with RV.
