Fantastic dispersed camping at the base of Mount Whitney

We spent one night in the Alabama Hills at the base of Mount Whitney at the beginning of April. Such a gorgeous place for a stopover. So many other people but still many options for dispersed camping with stunning views. Port-a-potties at nearby trailhead. Spotty AT&T cell reception.

Popular and crowded place!

Very very beautiful area, but we had a really hard time finding a spot that wasn't already taken.  Even far away from the movie filming locations (where the crowds were insane!), no matter how remote and tucked away the clearing was that we found on google satellite map, someone was already camping…

Great place. Snowed a bit on the first day but had beautiful views of Mt. Whitney. For sure a popular place but we were able to find a nice place to set up, and still not have neighbors nearby. Check out their IG @alabama_hills and practice leave no trace.
