The turn off from the main highway in to the camping grounds is located at North 34 degrees, 18.870 by West 117 degrees, 50.203 at 5131 feet.

There was extensive damage to the camping grounds and the facilities at Crystal Lake due to fires, beetle infestations, flooding, and vandalism. Individual camp sites, trails, and the campground's water distribution network were damaged to various degrees. The Forest Service has been doing an extremely good job working on restorations and making the camping facilities safe and clean.

All of the damage has been repaired thanks to USFS efforts and thanks to a series of volunteer efforts from the San Gabriel Mountains Trailbuilders crews, the volunteers that join them, and a variety of other volunteer organizations which donate their time and effort in to maintaining, building, and repairing hiking and nature trails such as the Angeles Volunteer Association.

The volunteers of the San Gabriel Mountains Trailbuilders are currently working on a schedule of repairs to the remaining hiking trails and nature trails. The Angeles Volunteers Association is also volunteering to perform the repairs to the Visitor Center that are required.
