    The breathtaking San Gabriel Mountain Range and River are the settings for California’s Camp Williams. Nestled in Angeles National Forest in Azusa, we are conveniently located near Freeway 210, Highway 39 and just twenty-four miles from Los Angeles. With our camp’s beautiful nature setting and proximity to all the sights of L.A., your visit to Camp Williams will be an experience to remember for a lifetime.

    Use our online reservation system to find the perfect time for your next vacation and then plan to experience California camping at its best. Fish or swim in the San Gabriel River, hike through the mountains, or just sit back and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of our camp. Bring your RV or pitch a tent at one of our campsites. Grab a bite to eat at Camp Williams Café.

    Pan for gold in the river, go biking or mountain climbing. For those who want to see the sights of the big city, plan a day trip to nearby Los Angles where restaurants, theater, and shopping can be found. Take a scenic drive through the beautiful hills of L.A. and maybe see a star or two. Whatever you’re looking for, you can find it at Camp Williams, the perfect spot for your next California camping experience.

    Good time!

    July was pretty hot, but thank goodness for the river. There's some shade provided by the trees, but a canopy isn't the worst idea. And bring a sleeping pad or air mattress -- the ground is VERY hard. (Simple sleeping bag won't quite cut it.) But aside from that, the campsite is wonderful and the staff is super friendly. Porta Potties only, no sinks (but there are faucets) so come prepared!

    My husband has been to Camp Williams many years ago and this was my first time, we stayed the 4th of July weekend. We were so happy with the spot we were given, the port a pottys were keep so clean and stocked with toilet paper and the staff from the Café to cleaning crew were just so pleasant. Everyone was so friendly. We were so impressed on how the campsite was kept so clean and the atmosphere was so beautiful. We already made reservations for the same spot and the next to go back in September (that was there next available for those spots, that says something) to take our kids and grandkids. So excited can't wait... Thanks to everyone at Camp Williams!!!!!

    Riverside Camping

    We stayed at Camp Williams just before the reservoir and fish fires swept through the canyon, and we've been thinking about the place since, wondering how everything there is and hoping all is OK. It's a beautiful place, right in the middle of the canyon with the mountains surrounding it and a river running right beside the campground that you can enjoy bathing in and sitting in the shade beside. The other families staying there were friendly and goodnatured. Someone generously helped us put up our tent when we ran into problems, and there was a great vibe overall.

    Nasty Neighbor

    Well the site was fine, but there was only 1 working shower in the womens restroom so that wasn't good. Also your neighbor from across lots 11-12 is obessed with telling us that their land is private when there are no signs so it was annoying to deal with them especially considering we paid for the use of lake. I highly suggest they put up some sort of sign because they were very rude to us and it made the whole experience less pleasant. Overall Camp Williams is great just wish that if your neighbors from across the way don't want people in their land they need to put signs and then of course we would obey the signs otherwise it will eventually cause a major problem with others who are not so tolerant of rude people.
