This campground may not be best for the average camper, but is designed for geology field camps. Close to many wonderful geologic hot spots, this campground has three very large group sites perfect for classes. There are large common areas with picnic tables and fire rings and several pit toilets. I spent a month here in summer 2012 and the weather was great! My class was mapping most of the week in the infamous poleta folds with several field trips to other interesting and relevant sites. The campground was our home base. While there are no showers, there is an accessible section of the Owens River that is nice for a swim and a quick rinse with eco-friendly water safe soaps (like dr. bronners). The infrastructure of the camp was central to the site meaning there were small tent villages spreading in all directions from the tables and toilets. This ensured that the class didn't get too annoyed with each other. Again while i wouldn't recommend this for most campers - there are other campgrounds not too farther up the road - this is a great site for classes and large groups.
