Cooper Canyon Campground

This campground is located along the Pacific Crest Trail between Cloudburst Summit and the junction with the Burkhart Trail. The campground has one pit toilet. Seasonal water runs along the stream at the campground early in the year. Year-round water is present at the stream crossing (or sooner) where the Pacific Crest Trail meets the Burkhard Trail just over a mile down the PCT from the campground or at Cooper Canyon Falls about 1.2 miles down from the campground. All water should be filtered.
