Description
Two boys clasping hands around a big tree at Big Pines. One is smiling and other is standing barefoot on a branch on the ground. Big Pines Recreation Camp (elevation 6,862) was developed in 1923 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Department of Parks and Recreation. It became a year-round resort with crowds of up to 10,000 on many weekends. Big Pines is located four miles west of Wrightwood in the Angeles National Forest. In 1940 Los Angeles County transferred the land to the U.S. Forest Service.Big Pines continues to be a popular recreation area, with three ski resorts, campgrounds and Jackson Lake.
