We came here on October 8th and there was a locked gate indicating that the campground was closed. Just wanted to let you know that the previous review was not accurate anymore.

“Quiet and Cold”

Reviewed Nov 21, 2016

Overall Rating

This campground was a nice quiet stopover during the winter season. We pulled in on our way south on the 395 just after passing Mammoth Lakes and getting to Tom's Place. During the summer it is a pay campground with water/trash/vault restrooms/bear boxes, during winter they turn off the water and allow camping for free. We noticed that going up the hill to the entrance another campground, French Campground, was closed for the season and it seemed as though people were turning around there assuming that Holiday would be closed as well, we proceeded in spite of this and found that it was open and very empty.
There were quite a few loops to this site stretching down the hillside. Not many of the sites seemed big enough to accommodate a big Class A RV, but we were fine in our van. Rather than keep a bearbox in every site this place clumped them in communal areas presumably to keep wandering bears out of the campsites themselves. The bathrooms were really spread out as well so it took some searching to find a spot sheltered from the growing winter storms and close to both bear boxes and a restroom. We found one finally and quickly set up camp and made a fire in the nicely built up fireplace. There was plenty of firewood laying around from previous visitors so we did not even have to look and everything was nicely dry. We did not linger long in the morning, however, as it was only 15 degrees outside and the only one in our little group that was remotely comfortable was the freaking husky. (she slept stretched out on her back like she was in a posh hotel room while we huddled with the other dog under piles and piles of blankets).
There was very good reception on both our At&t and T-mobile phones so we were able to work just fine.
Aside from the cold it was a rather nice and quiet place, easy to get to and well maintained. Just don't go without a heater if its winter. Just thinking about it makes me shiver.
