About Hermit Gulch Campground in Avalon, California

Hermit Gulch Campground is just up the hill from the main port city of Avalon on Santa Catalina Island. They make camping easy at Hermit Gulch.

The campground has many standard tent sites and, while you are welcome to bring your own camping gear, they have all you’ll need for rent if you book it early (first come first served). Additionally they have tent cabins for rent. Each cabin sleeps up to six people and come with a lantern and stove for cooking.

Reservations are required and should be booked well in advance as the spots at Hermit Gulch are popular. If they are full for your upcoming trip, there are other Catalina campgrounds many hotels in Avalon to choose from.

The Hermit Gulch Trail, part of the 38 mile long Trans Catalina Trail network, starts at the campground and leads up to the Hermit Gulch Lookout (and beyond).
