Description:

Kellogg Camp is named after Kerry Kellogg who spent 35 years working as Trails Manager for the Santa Barbara Ranger District.  Kerry retired in 2011 and the camp was named in his honor in 2012.  Nearby Coche Camp was essentially destroyed during the 2007 Zaca Fire and Kerry had used this preferred location as a spike camp during his time with the Forest Service.  Kellogg is located along the Santa Cruz Trail next to Coche Creek in the San Rafael Wilderness.  The camp is nestled in a small canyon with oaks, sycamore and alder trees and has a makeshift table, small toilet, year round water and spacious fire ring.  It’s a nice camp with room for stock or to throw a Frisbee.

Kellogg Camp Survey - 06-09-2017 - by axel
Link: Kellogg Camp
Date: 06-09-2017
Surveyor Name:axel
Camp Description:Came down from Mission Pine, could not find Coche Camp so stayed at Kellogg. The camp has not seen much use lately, and weeds were growing in the fire ring, but the table is still there and water is flowing in the creek. Signs of very recent bear activity and the trail is impassible just down stream, to Flores Camp because of deadfall and overgrowth.
Water Source:Flowing
Water Source Details:Good clear cold water flowing.
Weather Conditions:Pleasant weather with air temperature in the 70s. Nights cool.

Kellogg Camp Survey - 03-02-2016 - by Los Padres Forest Association
Link: Kellogg Camp
Date: 03-02-2016
Surveyor Name:Los Padres Forest Association
Camp Description:Stopped briefly at Kellogg Camp on my way from Big Pine and to Flores.  Kellogg remains the best camping option in the Grapevine network of camps.  The "table" at camp continues to be a punching bag for local bear and will probably lose the battle with gravity sooner rather than later.  The old toilet box has been moved to above the camp just off the trail, which is an upgrade.  Camp looks good.
Water Source:Flowing
Water Source Details:Good water flowing right at camp, as always.
Weather Conditions:Fantastic. Sunny, low 70's with a gentle breeze

Date: 02-27-2015
Surveyor Name:Los Padres Forest Association
Camp Description:This camp always has water, never heard of it dry.  Camp in great shape although it looks like a bear took a liking to the table and shredded a corner off.  Nice big camp with plenty of space to move around.  Note the somewhat broken table located in the meadow behind the camp.
