Welcome to Sturtevant Camp

Sturtevant-Camp-ApproachSturtevant Camp is located in Big Santa Anita Canyon, Angeles National Forest. We are open to the public and cabins are available from 1 to 40 people. The camp can be made exclusive to your group with a reservation of 20 or more.

Quarters consist of four bunkhouse style cabins, each sleeping eight, a Honeymoon Cottage, and the Retreat Cabin with its own kitchen and bathroom which sleeps 2 to 6. All cabins have electric lights in the evening and propane wall heaters. The bath house, separated for men and women, has flush toilets and hot showers.

Common facilities include a spacious dining hall and two fireplace rooms, one with a piano and the other the converted log ranger cabin. The industrial kitchen is at your disposal and offers three refrigerators, two Wolf ovens, one with 6-burner top and one griddle top, and all the plates, cups, silverware, knives and utensils you could possibly need. You supply your own food. We also have an outdoor chapel which can also be used for presentations and entertainment.

Recreation at camp includes volleyball, badminton, ping-pong, tether ball, horseshoes, croquet, zip line, big swing, games, self-guided nature walk and, of course, splashing in the creek.

Sturtevant Camp is only a four mile hike from Chantry Flat. Once there, you’ll be amazed that all of this is in the middle of the forest, miles from any road, and that most of it came in, bit by bit, on the backs of donkeys. Please read the Packing Services page if you would like your food and gear carried by donkey – it’s part of the experience.
