Reviewed Jul 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Tuttle Creek is a great spot along Hwy 395. We camped in a pull through site, which was nice since we were towing a vehicle. There is not a bad view in this place like others have previously said. It did get pretty hot during the day, but cooled off nicely at night. The night sky is spectacular! There were maybe 5 other rvs/tent campe... more

After a few days bathing in the stunning views of the Alabama Hills, we chose to have a slow re-entry back into the "real" world with a stop at Tuttle Creek. The campground was a perfect stop for us as it was nearly empty, the sites are large and spread out, the vault toilets were exceptionally clean and there were fresh water spigots.... more

Reviewed Feb 23, 2018

Overall Rating

The nearby Alabama Hills were packed and had constant traffic on the dirt roads so we moved here after rejecting the very cramped and crowded Lone Pine campground. Tuttle creek was nearly empty and a terrific bargain at $8. Clean pit potties and the dog and boy child had a blast in the creek. Amazing views, lots of space in and between... more

This campground does not have a bad spot. The views are spectacular no matter where you are. We have a 36ft 5th wheel and had no problem finding a level site. Bathrooms where clean and water was available in one location. The hiking trails are numerous and you can easily drive to Mt. Whitney base parking. We enjoyed driving thro... more

“Beautiful views, great campsites with great signal at a very cheap price!”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2017

Overall Rating

After 5 days of making do with bad unreliable signal in the Alabama Hills, we moved here for the work week and were very happy with this great campground. Clean restrooms, water, beautiful sites with large fire rings and views of the Sierras! Site 53 is higher up at the back of the campground and nicely isolated from the others.

Looks like the price per night went up in August 2017, from the fabulous $5.00 to $8.00 a night. Still a bargain! This is our 3rd stay here. Like the extra long parking spots for our RV and a car. Everyone was pretty friendly, but neighbor that moved into site next to us before our second night didn't bother leashing their dogs... more

We stayed at Tuttle Creek after the visitor center in Lone Pine said they are asking big rigs not to use the Alabama Hills to protect the ground cover. When we checked out the campground and found fast Verizon LTE and a nightly rate of $2.50 with the access pass, we decided to stay here instead. We got 4 bars Verizon with our booster a... more

Incredible views of the Sierra Mountains, Alabama Hills and Owens Valley. HUGE sites (at least 1/2 acre with 100 foot or more separation from your neighbors.) Onsite water and dump available.
