Well it's time to start planning our annual Summer Fest and Field Day event.


This will be a family event involving three days of camping in the mountains (elevation 7500 feet), an official ARRL Field Day competition, and several trail runs. We will also offer all levels of Amateur Radio license testing on Sunday.


There will be a pot luck and Dutch Oven cook-off on Saturday combined with wine and beer tasting.


For those who want to explore the area, there are hundreds of miles of off pavement trails, including some of the more challenging, (Miller Jeep Trail).


The camp site is accessible by 2WD and all vehicles are welcome.

McGill is part of Los Padres National Forest and managed by the US Forest Service.


McGill Campground sits in a mixed conifer forest in the Pinos Mountains, at an altitude of 7,500 feet. Campground temperatures are typically 15 to 20 degrees cooler than the Los Angeles Basin, and about a one hour drive to the campground from LA.


The area is in the northeastern part of Los Padres National Forest, which boasts 1,257 miles of maintained trails. Much of the forest is primitive and has 10 designated wilderness areas.
