“A great place to unwind with family”

Reviewed Jun 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We took 3 campsites that backed up right on the Owens River, marshes and meadows. There is a barbed wire fence that separates the campsites from the river area so that was a plus since we had a 5 year old with us.The sites are large and spacious, mostly grassy, and afforded breathtaking 360 degree views of Mammoth Mountain and the Sierra Nevada range. There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site. There are no hook-ups but there was a hand pump for water right across the road from us. There was also a port-a-potty a few feet from the water pump that was well maintained. There are clean restrooms with flush toilets, sinks and electrical outlets and showers that use tokens up by the little store. You could buy ice and other necessities in the store. Each dawn and evening coyotes could be heard "singing" across the river. The Owens River is a fisherman's paradise and lots of folks took advantage of that. Our camp hosts, Del and Colleen Andrés, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They made sure our every need was met. We will definitely return to this campground. It was quiet, other campers were friendly and courteous, no loud music or noises at any time day or night could be heard.....just us and the beautiful sights and sounds of nature. Definitely recommend this campground.

“Views of the Sierras and large sites”

Reviewed May 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Gorgeous views of the Sierra mountains and the Owens River right outside our door.
We stayed here two nights during the week in late May and almost had the place to ourselves. The friendly host put us in a huge space that we could park sideways in to enjoy the view.
The campground has no hookups but you can fill your water tank when you get here. Generators are allowed 8am-10pm. They have a bathhouse but charge $2 for showers. Our site had a great firepit and table. Satellite was easy to get and we had great AT&T coverage on our phones. Very quite park but I'm sure it gets busy during the peak fishing season. The campground is right on the Owens River which is know for great fishing. The campground has a well stocked store and has ice and firewood.
