Overall Rating

We've been coming here for years. For the longest time, it was free, then $10, and now $14. However, they have put the money back into the campground. They have upgraded the fire pits and picnic tables, and added a couple of extra toilets.

Essentially, though, it's boondocking. Be aware that the mosquitos can be brutal in season, and the raccoons are the size of Great Danes..... But, if you are a dedicated fly tosser, you'll have access to 7 miles of blue ribbon trout waters.

The sites are generally level and clean. If you are bringing your dogs, understand that the soil is acidic and will cause cracking on their paws after only a couple of days.

Overall, it's an 'off the beaten path' option to the crowds that can encompass Mammoth. We'll be back because the trout are calling!

“Cheap Camping in Bishop”

Reviewed May 09, 2013

Overall Rating

After trying 5 other locations (!) in Bishop, we found Pleasant Valley Pit.

We tried 2 boondocking spots that didn't get cell, then we tried going to Horton Creek but it was closed. THEN we tried the county parks. One was really busy and the other didn't get cell.

Pleasant Valley Pit saved the day. You can only get cell in the upper section. It's no frills, no hookups for just $2 per day.

The sites are far apart and the mountains are beautiful.

My only complaint is that other campers are not cleaning up after their dogs. Come on people!
