An hour boat ride off the coast (accessible from San Pedro), the outdoorsy town of Two Harbors on Catalina Island boasts summer camp vibes with stunning views (and the chance to see wild bison). Located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, Two Harbors is much smaller and quieter than its sister town of Avalon with one bar, one restaurant, one general store and lots of open space and water. The Two Harbors Campground offers traditional tent camping and cabins with access to showers, toilets, fresh water, picnic tables, BBQs and fire pits. The general store will even deliver your goods to your campsite.
If your best weeekends don’t involve seeing strangers, then these secluded getaways from L.A. might be just the ticket. Luckily, the city is surrounded by gorgeous national parks, forests and mountains to provide you with tons of natural beauty and a little isolation without skimping on things to do. On this list you’ll find island camping, lakes that make for perfect picnics, secluded beaches and hikes to waterfalls. If you do happen to see someone on the way, make sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
