This camp is located 2/10 of a mile south of the Alamar Saddle on a side loop of the Buckhorn Road (9N11). Alamar Camp is located at the junction of the Buckhorn and Alamar Trail (26W06), and is not far from the peak of Big Pine Mountain. This camp is the site of the old Alamar Guard Station, built in 1937 and razed in the 1960's. This is a great place to watch the sunrise over the Los Padres Forest. It can also be a very windy place to camp due to it's location on the saddle.
NOTE: VWR sawyers felled all the dead hazard trees during the 2013-14 seasons and fashioned seats out of the fallen logs. They also arranged the logs so that the crews who bulldoze the road didn't continue to doze the entire flat space of the camp. This is to protect the small pines so that one day this will be a shady camp again. So far its working and the pines are now well overhead.
