“Clean campground in great area”

Overall Rating

I really enjoyed staying at this campground. I was a bit surprised by how many people were coming in and out, but they were all reasonably quiet and nice--even offered me a couple of meals!

The campground is nestled right next to a creek, and surrounded by dirt roads. The dirt roads are popular with offroad vehicles of multiple kinds, if that is a negative to anyone else. They were all quiet and didn't make a lot of noise with them in camp when I was there, though.

The whole campground is very clean, including the vault toilets. In fact, a Forest ranger came through and cleaned up all of the area while I was there, so it is probably well kept during the summer months.

I could get a consistent 1 bar of Verizon 4G, but it would drop to 3G and was occasionally slow, even with an extra bar from the booster. I ended up moving to a boondocking location nearby just to get better reception, but the upload is choaked even at full bars in this area; the download can get more than workable outside of the campground, if you're willing to explore the boondocking options surrounding all over the same area.

This is very close to the Inyo Craters, if you're open for a short hike. I recommend it! Also, Mammoth Lakes is close with gas, groceries, etc. Other great things like Yosemite, Devils Postpile, Mono Lake, Mammoth Mountains, etc. are also within a close distance. There's even a rest area very close if any of those facilities are needed.

I would definitely return, although probably back to one of the several boondocking spots I scoped out nearby, due to the cell service. It is a beautiful area, and a nice campground!
