“Gorgeous 360 views”

I stay way out at 37.309440,-118.606267. The road in is long and rough. I'm in a van and wouldn't recommend anything other than sturdy vans or truck campers way up here. It isn't level, but I was able to get close enough. There aren't a lot of spots for larger rigs and they were all full the whole time I was here.

The views are outstanding in all directions and the cell service is decent. Without a booster Verizon was 3 down, 4 up and ATT was 27 down, 4 up.

This spot is high enough to get out of the heat of the Owens Valley. The town of Bishop has everything. The Grocery Outlet had a good selection of organic produce. Free RV dump at the Arco.

“Awesome Views!”

Camping on Buttermilk Road is stunning AND cell service was good enough that we were able to work during our stay!

When we arrived it was pretty crowded with rock climbers and we didn’t think we were going to be able to find a spot, so we grabbed the first one that would fit our 27' trailer.

After the weekend, it cleared out and there were only a few other campers remaining, all spaced at at least ⅛ a mile apart.

Up the road past the pinpoint on Campendium, and past where we camped there were some more spots, but I would recommend scouting before driving with your RV.
