Our General Location
Sturtevant Camp is located in the upper reaches of Big Santa Anita Canyon, in the San Gabriel Mountains of Southern California. The mountain range is roughly the size of Rhode Island so to narrow it down, we are in what is called the “Front Country.” That is, the southern edge of the range, facing the Los Angeles Basin.
How to Get to Chantry Flat
From the 210 Freeway, or any east-west thoroughfare such as Sierra Madre Blvd. or Foothill Blvd., go north on Santa Anita Ave. Follow Santa Anita Ave. all the way into the mountains. Chantry Flat is at the end of the road, three miles from the entrance gate at the top of Santa Anita Ave.
To get to Adams’ Pack Station, drive through the middle parking lot at Chantry Flat around left, through the upper lot and down the dirt driveway. Just follow the signs.
Parking in the public lot requires an Adventure Pass, sold at the pack station. Other passes are also accepted, such as the Interagency (America the Beautiful) Pass, Interagency Senior Pass or Interagency Access Pass. Parking in the Adams’ Pack Station lot is $10.00 per day.
The Chantry Flat Road is open daily from 6:00 AM until 8:00 PM.
