Camping on Concrete at the L.A. River

Hosted by

DnA’s Caroline Chamberlain attended the first official L.A. River campout last month. Organized by the arts nonprofit Clockshop, California State Parks and Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, it turned out to be a gathering of some of the river’s biggest fans.

But what is it like to camp on a concrete river that lies adjacent to freeways, train tracks and a high school?

With Lewis Macadams of Friends of the Los Angeles River, Kat Superfisky of Mia Lehrer + Associates and Damian Robledo of RAC Design Build.
