About Idyllwild Park

Popular Idyllwild Park, located on the perimeter of the eclectic mountain village of Idyllwild, boasts 202 acres of beautiful open space, mature forest and breathtaking hiking trails. Idyllwild is a perfect venue for reconnecting with family, friends, nature, and the slower pace of small town mountain life.

Idyllwild Park’s day use area offers a shaded meadow for picnicking and group outings, serving as a pleasant base for hikers, climbers, and explorers. Guests may hike any of the five trails that offer breathtaking scenery and panoramic views. For more adventurous outdoor enthusiasts, enormous granite boulders offer some of the best rock climbing challenges around. The park’s rustic but well-tended campground has 88 lovely forested campsites, each with fire ring and picnic table as well as close proximity to restrooms and showers.  Guests may also enjoy group camping offered nearby at RivCoPark's Lawler Lodge and Lawler Alpine Cabins.

  • As of 2/1/24 fire restrictions are lifted, wood and charcoal fires are permitted. (Hurkey Creek Park/Idyllwild Regional Park/McCall Memorial Equestrian Campground).
  • Propane fire pits are allowed with proper clearance of 10 ft from trees, brush and other ignitable material.
