Coldwater Canyon Yellow Post Sites

These three remote camping sites offer isolated scenic locations ideal for tent and car camping or a relaxing picnic far from the crowds. Other than a pit for campfires, these sites do NOT contain the amenities found at developed campgrounds. There is no water, no picnic tables, no restrooms nearby, and no trash containers.  Please pack it in - pack it out!  All sites are first-come, first-served.

Campfire permits are required for any type of fire use - campfires, charcoal BBQ's, or stoves. Campfires may not be allowed certain times of the year. See Current Conditions below or call the Lytle Creek Ranger Station (909-382-2851). 

Coldwater Canyon Yellow Post Sites are reached via forest roads 3N06and 3N06A. Please refer to the Yellow-post site map available by clicking on this link or for free at the Lytle Creek Ranger Station. 

High-clearance four-wheel drive vehicles are required for reaching the Coldwater Canyon sites (17 through 19 on the map) on Forest Road 3N06A. 3N06A is the rocky road to the left that begins by crossing the wash about 1.4 miles past the Lytle Creek Firing Line (shooting range). There is no road sign to identify it.
