Couldn't stay due to wildfires

The day I arrived the governor had closed the state parks statewide due to the wildfires. Reserved the whole week with recreation.gov and was promptly refunded those funds. No complaints the assistant host was awesomely suoee helpful.

Love this spot

My siblings both have trailers so this is where they stay when we come to mammoth. It’s very dispersed and clean! We love spending the day here and hiking around. So beautiful. We love climbing in the Ravine.

Great campsite in a safe town

The site was in a great spot in the middle of a nice, busy town filled with people you can tell live outdoors. Campsite was easy enough to get to. We weren’t at a drive-in spot, but the walk-in wasn’t too bad. Plenty of wildlife visit the campgrounds, so definitely be sure to use the bear boxes.…

About This Campground

Sherwin Creek Campground is located in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains within 2 miles of the full-service community of Mammoth Lakes, California. Popular among anglers, hikers, off-road vehicle enthusiasts and photographers, the campground is near some of the most spectacular wilderness and outdoor recreation areas in the Sierras.

Recreation

With a motocross track and trails, Sherwin Creek is a hot spot for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. The area's majestic scenery and challenging trails are also a draw for hikers. The Valentine Lake Trail and additional trailheads provide access to the John Muir Wilderness.

The eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains are known for their exceptional trout fishing. Anglers can try for rainbow trout in the creek.

Facilities

This large campground has campsites organized into three loops, all within walking distance of the creek. Several tent-only, walk-to sites make up another loop in a secluded area on either side of the creek. Sites have a native surface and plenty of shade.

Natural Features

The campground is situated in a shady forest of Jeffery pine, bordered by aspen-lined Sherwin Creek. The elevation is 7,600 feet. Wild roses and other flowers bring color to the landscape in spring and early summer.

Many species of wildlife call the mountains home, such as black bear, mountain lions, mule deer, pine marten, pika and numerous fish and birds.

Nearby Attractions

For campers interested in local events, the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee is hosted in Mammoth annually in mid-July. Several other events and amenities are available in town.

Many great day trips for sightseers are available in the area, such as Yosemite National Park, Mono Basin and Devils Postpile National Monument.
