Built in 1928 and restored in 2014, Campbell combines early 19th-century architecture with modern amenities. It is the only remaining redwood lodge in the San Bernardino National Forest.

COLE HOSPITALITY ROOMS
Ten motel-style rooms in Cole feature two twin beds and a wall heater, with a shared residential-style restroom in-between two rooms. Rooms are conveniently located next to Stone Lodge. Cole 1 doubles as a Health Care Center and is ADA accessible. Odd numbered rooms have easy access to the parking lot, while even numbered rooms overlook Mountain Home Creek.
Cole rooms are available for individual personal retreats in the off-season as well as for group retreats. The number of rooms available to reserve is based on the size of your retreat. Groups with a contract minimum of 85 or more full-time campers will be entitled to the use of two Cole rooms at no charge.
Guests are responsible for bringing their own bedding, however linen rentals and purchase of forgotten items are available in the Loch Leven office.
Cole was constructed in 1978 and dedicated and opened for use in February 1979. They are named for Rev. Clifford Cole Sr.
PAVILIONS AND TENT CAMPING
The grounds along Mountain Home Creek are peppered with pavilions and open areas for tent camping. The pavilions are ideal for small group meetings, providing plenty of shade and privacy when it is needed.
