A little hot in summer

As is with most of the camping in the area, summer months are pretty hot and dusty, and this campground does not offer much shade unfortunately. Very popular with RV campers. All sites are first-come, first serve. There are vault toilets, and water is available March 1st to October 31st. In terms of scenery, the view of the eastern Sierras is stunning! Dogs are welcome throughout the area as long as they are leashed. Depending on the weather, the wind can get pretty intense here, so if you have flexibility for your camping dates, check the weather forecast and plan accordingly. Sites are pretty well spaced out, so you can expect a pretty quiet and private camping experience.

Great views and good camping

Stayed here overnight when traveling through California headed to Nevada. The site has some beautiful views of the mountains. It was cloudy and getting dark when we got there so didn't see the views until in the morning when we woke up to snow capped peaks. Nice clean camping area and sites are not right on top of each other.
