    Greetings from So. Cali!!!

    Just wanted to send a shout out to ya'll in the hammock camping world. I've been a member for a short time now after discovering the forums watching plenty of vids on YouTube. Been mostly a tent camper most of my life and came across UL backpacking about a couple of years back and now trying hammock camping out for the first time. All I have to say is...I'm loving it!!! You really can't go anymore UL than hammock camping!!! Planning a winter excursion soon and will definitely post my adventures along the way. Hopefully in due time...it will be a pleasure to meet each and everyone of you along my travels. Until then...

    Happy Hammocking!!!!

    Peace out!!!

    Hiya Grandpa - we're practically neighbors. Heck, we may be as I live at the La Mirada border!

    Hi Mike,

    I've mainly hiked/camped/hung in the Angeles Forest (Big Santa Anita area) and up in the San Jacinto/Idywild area (top of the Palm Springs Tram.) Never had an issue with the rangers, and I camp in designated camp sites. (I believe you can also camp in anywhere in the wilderness areas so long as you are 100 feet from trails and streams and 200 feet from other camps, but I'd check with the rangers to make sure.)

    Essentially all the local forests from Malibu, Angeles Forest, San Gabriel Mtn range, San Jacinto, San Bernardino all are prime hanging areas. Interested to know from others if anyone has had any issues.

    ~ Lizzie
    PS - Derek created this spreadsheet that lists other hammock friendly camp grounds.
