Lake Arrowhead Camping

Back in September (my last month of unemployment) husband-face and I took one last summer camping trip up near Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernadino Mountains.  We stayed at Dogwood Campground.  The setting was beautiful and the campground was huge but all of the sites were very close together so you didn't have much privacy.  We ended up hanging out with our neighbors and playing drinking games both nights. When we go back up we'll probably try to find a campground that's a little quieter as this place had screaming kids everywhere.  The neighbors to our other side had so many people and were so incredibly loud that it made for a not particularly peaceful camping experience.  But I guess that's what you get when you car camp, and I am not the backpacking type.

We did a couple of hikes in an attempt to find water to swim in (it was HOT). Our first attempt to find the waterfall at Heart Rock was fruitless as there was no water running (though we did find Heart Rock).  So we too a drive and found our way to Aztec Falls.  The water was low but it was running.  When it is rushing and the water levels are higher it's apparently a great cliff jump. We will definitely go back here and make a day of it with a picnic at the swimming hole next year.
