After finally getting the upper hand on our unlevel site at Malibu Creek State Park, we got to sit back and enjoy the beautiful view from our Airstream… for a few minutes at least.
When you have a toddler, you don’t have hours and hours of nothing to do. Because there is always something to do. Like exploring the campground. So, if Ava sits still and “relaxes” for few minutes, we soak it in… fast!
Adjacent to the campground is this old fenced off house, which is the Angeles District Headquarters. Not really sure what goes on in there, but hopefully they are hard at work on a plan to keep this state park open and all the others that are close to being shut down.
In front of the restroom/shower area, we ran into some important information regarding the campground. Oh, just a little something about a dangerously venomous reptile. Great, I’m wearing flip flops. Luckily, we didn’t run into any unwanted visitors like this guy.
The campground does not offer any hook-ups. It seems to cater to mostly tent campers. But, there are these water spigots between some of the sites, like ours. Don’t expect to connect your hose to them full time. They are there for everyone to share… plus the spigot is the type that you have to hold open by hand.
There are fire pits at each site, and depending on the fire danger level of the day, the campground does allow you to light some type of fire. During our campground exploration, we ran into the Campfire Center sign. Hmm, I wonder what this is all about? And more wildlife danger signs just under it. Ticks? Are they trying to scare me out of here!?!
After a few bends and twists on our path, we ended up at the Campfire Center. It was a nice group area with lots of bench seating, a screen behind that burned gate thing, a fire pit to the side of screen, and stone box to rest the movie projector on.
Stay tuned for more camping adventures with our Airstream at Malibu Creek State Park.
