The camp was constructed by the CCC in 1935. It is named for John C. Fremont who in 1846, led an armed force near this camp as he crossed San Marcos Pass. Fremont's goal was to engage the Mexican Army in the vicinity of Los Angeles. Crossing the pass on Christmas, the group was drenched by a strong storm. They captured Santa Barbara without opposition as all the men of the town were down in the Los Angeles area.

There are 15 camp sites with tables, stoves, flush toilets and water.
