“Beautiful views, easy access, centrally located”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We can't believe there is only 1 review for this spot! It's very easy to access right along a paved road and endless spots to choose from.

The spot we chose was perhaps the best one there. Views of the mountains and the sunsets were mind blowing. Perfect open spot for solar but also could find trees for our hammocks. There seemed to be a lot of people camping along this road, but our spot made it seem like we had the place to ourselves. It didn't say anywhere the stat limit, but we stayed a week to explore the NP.

We didn't have service right at our spot but if we biked about 2 minutes towards the bathrooms we had pretty good connection. Biking along this road is awesome, and you can bike to multiple spots to hike. Big Baldy trailhead was about a 5 minute bike ride (from our spot). Pit toilet, garbage and recycling bins are available right when you turn onto this road.

We did see some big rigs come and camp here and tent campers as well. Be sure to get a permit (free) to have fires or use a camping stove.

“Large level site underneath pines and firs within easy access to Big Meadow trailhead”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped here 2 nights, one before and one after our backpack into the Jennie Lakes wilderness. Many large level sites available for dispersed camping including some with amazing granite slabs to take in the sun.

Most sites accommodate RVs, including very large RVs. We saw one site with three large RVs on the same site.

Sites include a picnic table, but no toilets or water. Depending on the site, pit toilets are a short drive away.
