“Delightful, peaceful, and beautiful”

Reviewed Jul 28, 2019

Overall Rating

I stayed here a little over a week while I supported a PCT hiker. While most spots are exposed (great for solar panels), I had a couple of trees shading my trailer and a creek that ran just behind my trailer. The site was mostly level and plenty long enough for a good sized trailer or RV. The pit toilets were always clean and there was... more

Excellent access. Super clean and well maintained. All sites are improved to be level and include a solid table and major league fire pit. Views toward Whitney, up, down and across the Owens Valley are very nice. Easy hiking with a few road beds and lots of sagebrush. Creek runs right through the campground and it was roaring.

We came here to dump our tanks and refill water after spending a few days in the Alabama Hills just down the road. We loved it so much we ended up staying for a few days. It was a beautiful location overlooking the valley with Mt Whitney behind us. Plus the our Verizon 4G signal was good enough to stream video here. The spot we pic... more

“Awesome camp, lots of room and water at each loop”

Reviewed May 09, 2019

Overall Rating

The sites are wonderful. #58 is level with a southeast view from the fire ring and a Sierra view from our kitchen table!

Water is strange but available. Each loop has 1 potable water with the remaining water locked up and marked non-drinking.

Verizon cell is good LTE! The best $8 site I have been in.

Only $4 with senior discount. Killer views of snowy Sierra Mountains. Not crowded during our Mon-Tue stay. Portable water available but tap near us could only be used to fill jugs. Sites spaced nicely. Quiet.

“No potable water. Very crowded. ”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved the mountains, but very crowded. We called ahead to make sure the water was turned on and safe to use for drinking. The main office said yes. When we arrived we found a new sign saying water not safe to drink and all the spigots padlocked. The only water turned on was at the dump and it also stated not potable.

We love the mountains, so this is a great spot for us, plus this section of 395 is one of my top 5 areas in the country. Just a short distance from town choose boondocking in Alabama Hills, or stay here for 8 bucks. Great site, amazing views, camp host was super cool,....
