“Great stay at Sherwin Creek”

Reviewed 7/5/2020

Days stayed: 3
Site Number: 32
Overall Rating

Very nice campground at a great location around many of the area trails. Site 32 was ideally located near the camp host, vaulted toilets, and the campground entrance. The site was level, quiet, and had plenty of room. The camp host, Tony, was very helpful. There is some OHV traffic, but nothing that degraded our trip. We encountered a bear in our campsite on the second night of our stay and another one was roaming around when we departed mid morning. There’s no RV dump so on our way back home we stopped by Old Shady Rest Campground and used their dump with a $10 fee.

Bottom line, the camp exceeded our expectations. We’re looking forward to coming back again.

The campground is fairly nice. Sites differ quite a bit based on where you are in the campground. There is quite a bit of OHV traffic up and down the campground roads, which mixed with the silty dirt makes for some dust. We were there in late September and the creek was still running pretty well. You're only a couple of miles from Mammoth Lakes Village but you'd never know it.
