The Barton Flats Campground provides a taste of just about everything
the San Bernardino National Forest has to offer. In addition to a nearby lake and
river access, a variety hiking, biking and horseback riding trails can be accessed
from the campground. Its location also provides a great place for visitors to relax,
take in the fresh, mountain air, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Located 36 miles northeast of San Bernardino, this campground is nestled
in the San Bernardino Mountains, just off the Rim of the World Scenic Byway.
The level campsites are tucked among a variety of pine and oak trees, at an elevation of 6,360 feet.
The campground provides access to the famed Santa Ana River Trail, which will someday run
from the mountains to the seaside, providing spectacular views along the way. It is currently
popular for hiking, biking and horseback riding.
The 2.5-mile Rio Monte Trail is also accessed from the campground and ends
at the Rio Monte Panorama, which overlooks the deep gorge of the Santa Ana River Valley.
The Jenks Lake Trail begins at the Barton Flats Visitor Center on the Rio Monte Trail.
It then follows Barton Road to an old logging road to Jenks Lake.
At nearby Jenks Lake visitors can enjoy fishing and non-motorized boating, including
canoeing and kayaking. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout and there are also some
largemouth bass, bluegill, sunfish and catfish available. Fishing is also available
in the nearby Santa Ana River.
The campground offers dozens of single and double campsites, available for tent and RV camping.
Some accessible sites are available as well. There are no hookups at the campground, however,
the parking aprons are paved and a dump station is available.
Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible flush toilets, showers and
