Bakersfield Recreation Sites

Chimney Creek Campground

Chimney Creek Campground contains 32 sites, and is nestled in a wooded setting at 5,700 feet in elevation. There is plenty of room to spread out even on holiday weekends. During the summer, days can be warm and dry. Access is from the graded dirt Canebrake Road which is part of the Chimney Peak Backcountry Byway.

The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Chimney Peak Backcountry Byway just south of the campground. Currently, the campground has no water. So bring your own drinking water with you and take out all your trash. Black bears frequent the area so do not leave food out when you are not in camp or overnight. Horses and pets are welcome. There are no reservations or fees but donations are accepted.
