Green Valley Lake - the highest community in the San Bernardino Mountains - at 7,200 feet. Supervised beach and swimming area are operated all summer and paddle boats and row boats are available for rent. Fishing is excellent in the well stocked lake and hiking and mountain biking are also favorite recreational activities.

  • Green Valley Lake has a small downtown area that hosts a market, two restaurants, a post office, a bait and tackle shop

  • On July 15, as part of the Summer Faire Series:

  1. Pottery Demo
  2. Lyle Ferguson talk on History of Green Valley Lake
  3. Evening concert 5:30—Wake the Bard (Irish band)


The campground offers single-family sites for tent and RV camping. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. NO OVERFLOW PARKING is available. In order to allow as many people to come as possible, we are vigorously encouraging carpooling.

  • Bears frequent the area; use appropriate containers for food and garbage

  • Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
  • In accordance with standard industry practices, Mountain Top Recreation will be assessing a $5 additional vehicle fee per night on the second vehicle in each single family campsite, and on the third and fourth vehicles in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered to be one vehicle and the third and fourth are also considered to be one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
